If proper voltage to appliance then faulty thermal cutout. Part number LA1053.
just to confirm remove the two white wires from thermal cutoff and jumper them together, be sure no wires are touching any part of base when doing this.. If fires up then install the LA1053.. check vent usually this causes this part to fail...

Verify 220 volts to the terminal block where the cord attaches.
Check the door switch for continuity.
Check the thermal fuse on the right hand side of the heating element just below where the heater wires connect.
You may need a flashlight to see this fuse.

It most likely is the thermal fuse.
If so correct any vent blockage or you will blow another fuse.
The fuse comes in a kit including the hi-limit switch.
Replace them both.

My dryer will only work on the timed dry cycle only and still takes along time to dry did clean it out by lifting the top up can't get the back off because of the fake screws. the dryer is a performa model...


check to vent or remove the vent and see if it will work...if the vent is plugged it will take a long time to dry and sensor dry will not work...
