Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

The switch you speak of is a mechanical switch with electrical contacts. If the spring inside gets rusty, it doesn't turn properly....replace it!

Neptune dryer has power but will not spin.I hear a faint click comming from the left side. model#MDE9700AYM


An electric Neptune clothes dryer, like most electric clothes dryers, has two circuit breakers: one for the drum and another for the heating element. Both breakers need to be in the "on" position for it to run properly. Go to your main circuit box. Reset both of the dryer's circuit breakers to the "on" position. If one of the breakers trips again, there's a problem with the dryer component that it operates. Contact a dryer repair technician to evaluate the machine's condition.
The lid switch is a small latch located on the interior of the door frame on your Neptune clothes dryer. It keeps the door securely shut when the dryer's on to prevent injury should you open the door and reach inside while it's turning. If the lid switch becomes damaged, the dryer won't turn on even though its lights might work. Run your finger over the lid switch and listen for a clicking sound. If you don't hear a sound when the latch is compressed, it's faulty and needs to be swapped out.

The thermal cut-off is a heat-sensitive safety feature on a Neptune clothes dryer that shuts off the heating element if the dryer overheats. After it activates, it can't be reset; you must replace it. Until it's replaced, your dryer might only partially function, so while its lights might turn on, the dryer might not spin or heat. Don't exchange an old thermal cut-off for a new one until you first determine what promoted it to trip, otherwise your dryer likely will overheat again.

I have a Kenmore gas dryer Model 74812200. It is no longer heating up. When I turn it on, I hear a clicking sound for about 30 seconds then it goes off. Then about a minute later I hear the clicking sound...


You would not hear the click if the ignitor was bad. It won't click until the flame sensor get heated up by the ignitor. So that tells me the thermal fuse ain't melted. I would say them coils on the gas valve are the problem. themobilian_2943.jpg

My dryer seems to run rough. I changed the belt but won t turn with wet clothes. What could it be. Thx


I would say the dryer has a failed central ball bearing. You can say it by turning the drum manually, with the belt not installed and hearing for the tipical "grainy" sound of the rusted or stucked bearing.
