Ok...almost same problem...resolved by replacing thermal fuse by blower....so I guess the thermal fuse can just go with a little surge from opening closing door switch if it was already on its way out...or something...but simple fix anyway....thanks for giving me the order of things to try!

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer or dryer ID doesn't
mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a
schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and
discovered that more than 4,700 people were asking
for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer
repair of my own and found an excellent video which
showed me how to take my machine apart. This
video made it possible for me to do my own repair. I
was so impressed with the video that when I saw all
these people needing help, I wanted to tell them
about it. If you have a top loader (washer) of the
direct drive type, this video might be a Godsend for
you. If you look at the back of your washer and the
panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove)
chances are you have a direct drive and this video
is just what you need. You can see this video at
www.acmehowto.com You will probably need
more help in determining what the problem is and
how to fix it. If your repair problem is a washer or
dryer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com
where they have very good trouble shooting and
repair information on most washers and dryers.
I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry
about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good
luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my
advice on fixya.

Simple repair. If you gonna remove the front to do the repair I suggest you lift up on the panel to keep from damaging the clips that hold the bottom secure

Sounds like the door switch. Easy repair. Remove the lint filter.
Remove the 2 screws under the lint filter opening. With a screw driver, insert it between the lid and front panel on one side at a time. Pop that end up and then do the other side.
Lift the lid up and away from you.
You will see the switch. Replacing it is a pure nuts and bolts operation. Just make sure you mark the wires before removing the old switch.
The kit (It's a Whirlpool product) should be available at any decent sized appliance parts house.

The thermal fuse is likely blown. Disconnect power then remove the rear panel to access the thermal fuse on the blower housing.
Once the panel is off, bypass the thermal fuse by joining the wires together then insulate them properly. Reconnect power and start the dryer. The thermal fuse is indeed blown if the dryer starts. Replace it including the cycling thermostat.
