Question about Dryers
Model # LER3624EQO (or) 0 (Last character is a letter O or numeral 0. I can't tell for sure) This is a front loading electric dryer approx 10 yr old. Dryer will not run, timer works and can be herd ticking, stops when front door is opened. Start switch displays continuity when depressed. I have checked for this on all fuses and switches with good readings on all except 1. My question; The thermal (196 degree F) fuse, not resettable, connected by Blue wires, between the drive motor and timer switch does not show continuity when checked with a multimeter. Is this a normal indication for this switch or an indication that it could be bad? Resistance readings on this fuse come up infinite. Any help would be appreciated.
That is the thermal fuse. It must read closed for the dryer to work. You can connect the two wires together to check the rest of the system, but don't run it with them crossed for normal drying. Many times this is an indication that the high limit switch is sticking or the duct is clogged with lint causing a high temp situation.
Post back if you have any questions.
