    the fuses we are replacing are two 30W in a fuse box that runs to the outlet the dryer is pluged into.

  • Samuel Charles Spriggs May 11, 2010

    I think you mean 30 amp fuses. This is caused by the dryer pulling too much current. Many possibilities.



    Could be the plug on the end of the dryer cord. Have you pulled that out and checked for corrosion, heat damage -- check outlet as well.



    Could be in the fuxe box itself -- do you see any corrosion, heat damage in there?



    Let me know what you find, we'll go to other possibilities.

Assuming that the fuses you speak of are the external pair, and not the internal motor or timer resets:

Check the fuse holder for corrosion on the plates. Often the fuse is not properly seated because of this build-up and therefore has an intermittent connection. This will cause the fuse to either heat up, or overload; ultimately failing.

To remedy this, turn OFF the breaker, or main switch if necessary, and fix a wooden dowel with a piece of emery cloth (or sand paper) on the end. Remove any visible black corrosion from the contact plates.
Finish with a spray of WD40 to protect the plates and fuse end.
Replace the fuse, ensuring that it's tight, reinstate power and try again.

take the back off the heating element will be on the right side as you face the back of the dryer inside a metal container. The heating element is resistor wire. The other part that commonly goes bad is a thermal fuse it will be connected to the heating element but mounted on the back of the dryer near the bottom center right. The fuse should show continuity so should the heating element. Elements sometimes ck good but if you shake them the wire will seperate.

Whirlpool Electric dryer type-DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM54. model LER7646JQO the heating element get very hot. the dryer does not turn on. the drum does not turn either.


If the heating element is getting very hot that means there is no air flow across it. If the drum doesn't turn then the blower is not turning causing the element to get very hot. Could be drum belt, drum rollers, or motor.

My dryer won't turn on


Make sure that the problem is not a broken belt, or a belt that has slipped off of the motor pulley or idle arm pulley.
Look to see if the motor is running first, sometimes you cannot hear the motor running but it is.
Also you can check your breakers to see if one is kicked out.
This problem can also be caused by a faulty start switch.
If this is not the problem than it may be time to call the repairman

It appears the heating element went out on our older Kenmore dryer - Type DWJR ELE 2406028 FM54. mod 110.62622101. Is this an easy fix?


Yes it is fairly easy to replace from the back. First verify it is the element and not the thermal fuse or a loss of one leg of the 240VAC circuit.

if you take the back off of your dryer and look for a little white thermo fuse with 2 wires on it if you unhook the wires and plug them together than start the dryer if it starts shut it off and replace the fuse and clean your venting

Dryer runs no heat


Sounds to me you either blew the fuse or tripped the circuit for the heating element. Try replacing the fuse or resetting the breaker before trying any repairs.
