    Replace the thermal fuse and the hi-limit thermostat located on the heating element canister.

    Make sure your vent is clean before restarting the dryer.

THE LIGHT WILL NOT COME ON WHEN THE DOOR IS OPENED AND THE DRYER WILL NOT STOP WITH THE DOOR OPEN


The dryer has a switch in the door that is activated when the door is opened/closed, replace this switch or check the connector to it or the wiring.

Door is ajar message when shut light comes on but doesnt run


That's because the door switch isn't getting pushed when you're closing the dryer door for some reason or another. Its located at the top of the door. Try pushing the switch by hand and seeing if the light shuts off when you manually push it.

I have an admiral electric dryer. It stopped in the middle of a cycle and the light is out and it won't turn on. I checked the fuse box, the plug and the belt is still on, so what do I do now?


Did you test the power outlet with another device...Sometimes a power outlet will fail under the load of a high current appliance like a drier...If the drier runs on 220 volt current...and have circuit breakers instead of fuses...make sure the 220 volt breaker for the dryer is not tripped...If it is tripped...reset it....if not...have a tech to check the outlet. oncee it is established that the drier is getting power and still not working...you may want to get it checked out by service personnel....Hope this was helpful....PEACE.....

I have an electric dryer. The breaker went off and when reset the dryer would not come back on. I am not sure if the push button on/off switch is now working or if there is a reset on the dryer


I have a Kenmore 80 series electric dryer. The light comes on when the door is open so I know it is getting power but dryer will not turn on. Is the push button not working or can I reset the dyer?

Dryer not starting


Luckily, these units usually have a wiring schematic on the back, if not google it. The first thing on a washer or dryer to fail is the door switch. It's easy to replace or bypass. After that the start button itself may be bad. Follow the circuit, be careful. Use a continuity meter that beeps to check stuff. You mention a light. That means the door switch controls the light and the dryer, there will be a normally open leg and a normally closed leg. Good luck.
