Dryer does not start. I can hear the hummof it receiving power and have changed the motor and door switch.

Hi, I would check the white thermo fuse to see if it's blown. If the thermo fuse it bad it will keep the motor from running. Without a model number it's hard to give much detail, but here is a video that should be similar to your whirlpool dryer that shows you how to replace a thermo fuse. Most all Whirlpool Dryer thermo fuses are white in color. They show the most common one in the video, but your could be a little different shape too.

Does thermal fuse burn out only because of temp.?

Possibly or the thermo fuse just went bad normally if the thermo-fuse blows its a venting problem warm moist air back builds into the dryer which in turn blows the thermo-fuse to save the dryer from further damage and also keeps from starting a fire in your home a big saftey feature that has saved many homes.

I was using the "dry" cycle and noticed the dryer stopped after 10 minutes. When I opened the door, very light smoky/steamy stuff was coming out the door and there was a slight burning smell. Now, it...

here are two sites, i would say the vent is clogged and that the thermo switch on the motor tripped but I am not an expert, just cheap charlie:

I prefer the last site, but that's just me. hope this helps Tim

I pulled the fuse next to the thermistor on my HE3 but I cant tell if it is blown. Nothing is melted

you cant tell by looking at will need an ohms meter to check them for continuity. Place the red lead to one of the spades and the black lead to the other spade. If you get any movement at all on the dial or gauge, the fuse is good.

Kitchen aid dryer Partial drying the cloth

First you should make sure the exhaust vent and ducting and lint trap is not clogged or restricted, birds/insect nests, or lint build up. If the dryer is heating up it is most likely an airflow issue.

Trying to locate heating element on kitchen aid dryer

Do you have the part number, is so Put in (Find kitchen aid dryer Part# 111111* ) Or( Find kitchen aid dryer heating element* ). If this is a old dryer some parts are not made anymore. Any Dryer over 7 years old is no longer energy efficient. Hope This Helps.

Kitchen-Aid Dryer has power to dryer , door switch is working ,and inside light is working but dryer will not start.

Check for a blown thermal fuse. It's about an inch long and is inside the rear of the dryer, usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a blown thermal fuse. Hope this helped and best wishes.

i am asuming that when you say it works you mean it runs but not with heat? the thermo fuse is behind the back panel of the dryer the unit needs tobe pulled out to get to the back, you should see a bigger black thermostat next to a smaller thermo fuse, you can just jump the thermo fuse to see if that is your problem. it is not a fuse like you think of in your home.
