Question about Electrolux Dryers
We ran the dryer without the lint filter and we think something got stuck in the machine because it won't start. This happened once enforce and someonne came out to remove the sock that got sucked in.
Sounds like you burned a sensor up, the exhaust sensor, if the exhaust over heats the sensor trips and you have to replace it, open the back and look at the metal exhaust shaft which the end of the shaft hooks to the plastic vent that goes outside. the sensor should be located on the outside of the shaft. test if for continuity on each wire, there are two if you dont get continuity, pull the wires and jump them together to see if it will start now, please replace the sensor but the dryer should work now but your in danger of catching something on fire so replace it!

First of all, You have a serious safety issue. Your dryer may catch fire. DO NOT USE YOUR DRYER.
Something went into the mechanism (yes, may be another sock), and a lot of lint went inside the dryer. The dryer needs to be cleaned by a technician. Using the dryer on its condition may cause a fire. Don't get your house burned down just to save some money doing it by yourself.

Yes,remove the front panel to clear the jam. Carefully inspect the blower wheel after it is cleared. The blower wheel must not be loose on the motor shaft.

Testimonial: "Thanks, you confirmed my assumption."
You may have to remove the front panel to enter the air passages and blower fan. Try feeding a vacuum cleaner hose (remove the metal hose end) into the area behind the filter to see if can pick up whatever dropped into it. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: dryer drum won't spin
the front control panel has 2 little screws on the 2 top corners remove them, then pry off the entire control panel (very careful ) once the panel is off remove 4 screws that hold the front to the body, then open the door and remove the 2 screws in front next to the lint filter, slowly remove the front door assembly starting from top, disconnect the door switch, then lift it off the front hooks and the door is out, then remove the front 4 screws from the front bearing and remove, so will gain access to the blower housing, good luck

Testimonial: "Thanks for the detailed instructions. I found a piece of clothing in the blower and some at the end of the exhaust outside the house. The dryer is running perfectly now"
