Kenmore HE 5 electric dryer, no power

I have a Kenmore HE5 electric dryer that is 5 years old. It has worked well but now it is completly dead. I have power to the unit (to where the power cord attaches to the back of the dryer). There are no lights or failure codes it appears as though it is not plugged in but as I said there is power to the back of the unit. Is there anything I can do to isolate or repair the problem??

Thanks in advance for anyhelp.

Jim

With the dryer unplugged, remove the lower panel under the door. To remove, you will need to loosen the screws under the bottom fronyt edge. With the screws removed, the panel drops down a little, then comes off. Check the Thermal Fuse located on the blower fan housing directly under the drum. This is a white or gray plastic component with 2 wires. Take a resistance reading across the fuse. You should get a reading of 0 ohms (or very low resistance). If the fuse is bad, your problem may be solved. A blown thermal fuse will kill the entire dryer. In addition, if the thermal fuse is bad, it usually blows for a reason. Make sure your dryer ventilation is clean and clog free. A dryer that is clogged will overheat to the point fo failure which causes internal component failure. Not to mention, this is a fire hazard. Please check and let me know. If the fuse is still good, the problem may be with your main control board. The fuse is the more common and least expensive option to try first. I hope this helps you. Let me know what you find...
