Have you checked the thermal fuses? The main cause of dryers not starting is the thermal fuse.

My dryer is dead. I have ohmed out the cord and changed the dryer control board (8546219). Still dead, nothing at all. Any other ideas?


Hello,

The most probable thing thats wrong causing the dryer to not start is going to be a blown thermal fuse,when it goes out it cuts power to the motor circuit...do you have a display on the front yet it wont start???? or no display??

If you do have a display yet the dryer wont start it very likely will be the thermal fuse,it fits into the blower housing below where the lint filter fits into inside of the door. To access it to check it remove the small lower front panel and it will be on the top of the blower housing,to check it measure it for continuity (ohm it out) with zero ohms resistiance.
This is what it looks likeoldtech2332_116.jpg
If that turns out to be the problem be sure to take apart the blower asm. and clean all lint from it and also check the venting from the back of the dryer all the way to where it exits the house....since the usual reason the thermal fuse goes out is because of poor airflow because of built up lint/blocked vent.

Amana dryer model YNED7200TW will not start. there is power, but start button does nothing. Resetting breaker did not work. Any ideas?


Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)
$10.70

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.

My dryer is a kenmore 110.61082000 and it wont start. it keeps displaying check lint screen even though it is completely clean and the sensor bar is clean. what is wrong?


The thermal fuse located on the blower housing is blown and since it is wired in series with the motor, power to the motor is terminated, the motor will not run and no dryer function works. Disconnect power then pry the lower access panel off with a flat-head screwdriver as shown.

Remove the hex-head screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the duct to expose the thermal fuse on the blower housing.

Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced along with the thermistor if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards. Let us know if you need further advice.

I have a Kenmore 110.63032102 dryer and I put a pair of sneakers in it. It shut off and now it wont even turn on. What's wrong?


Drying a pair of sneakers causes the dryer to overheat and this causes the thermal fuse to blow. The thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor circuit and if it blows, power to the motor is terminated causing the dryer not to turn on. Disconnect power then Pry the lower access panel off with a flat-head screwdriver as shown.

Start light on but wont start


Hi there,

Well most gas dryers have one thermal fuse and some have two thermal fuses wired in series with the motor. If any of the thermal fuses are blown that could be one of the reasons of your dryer not starting. So first of all you may check out the fuse.

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Kenmore dryer model 64602 wont turn on???


Check the thermal fuse on the rear of the dryer.
Remove the rear panel. The thermal fuse is 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide. White in color and located just left of the dryer exhaust vent. 2 purple wires. Jump the wires together and start the dryer. If it runs, replace the thermal fuse.

Dryer does not start - Thermal Fuse is ok.


Good to know, when the appliance does not start at all is always thermal fuse, wiring, door lock switch, or rarely the control assembly.

Have a nice day.
