Sounds like you blew a thermal fuse depends on the brand and if it is check your dryer vent a plugged up vent will cause long drying times.

Michael Pryor I got a dryer model number.WED7500VW, is not turning on door switch onewire Was burn....


The door switch activates when the dryer door is closed. On most dryers, the door switch makes an audible clicking sound when it activates. To determine if the door switch is working, try starting your dryer and then listen for the "click." If the door switch makes a clicking sound, it is probably not defective. If you don't hear a click, use a multimeter to use the door switch for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Dryer won't start.makes a click sound when I press start


It sounds as if there is a disconnect somewhere. Is this still under a warranty? If you're unsure, call and find out. If it isn't, they may be able to tell you what options you can try or how much to replace.

Kitchenaid dryer model kgys750jq0 wont start


The door switch is located near the dryer door and is activated when the door is closed. If the door switch fails, the dryer won't start at all. Many types of door switch will make an audible click when they are activated. If the door switch makes a clicking sound when activated it is probably not defective. If it doesn't make a click, it can be checked with an ohm meter or continuity checker. The door switch is relatively easy to replace and is usually not very expensive. Here is the switch to order if it is bad.

The thermal fuse helps to prevent a dryer fire by shutting off power to the dryer if it overheats. If the dryer won't start check this fuse first. Test the thermal fuse with an ohm meter or continuity checker. This is the most common part to fail when the dryer won't start. Once the thermal fuse has blown, it has to be replaced. It can not be reset. Here is the fuse to order in case it is bad.


Post back your findings and I will post the repair video for the repair.

Dryer clicks when start button pushed but does not start.


A quarter was lodged on the thermal fuse , located below the lint screen on the blower exhaust housing, on our dryer. Remove the front lower panel , 2 screw, and you'll see 2 fuses. I suspect that our control board is burnt.
