Check for a blown thermal fuse. It's about an inch long and is inside the rear of the dryer, usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a blown thermal fuse. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My dryer light comes on when I open the door, but the display panel will not come on when I push the power button


try the dryer aid draw switch and check you have some in systems or it will not turn on. just flash at you on some models. also check the bottom has enough salt inside as this as well as dryer aid needs to be topped up every now and then.

Kitchen Aid Electric Dryer Model # KEYE678BALO, won't start.


This is most often caused by a bad thermal fuse or thermostat high limit cutout. Check them for continuity (with the machine unplugged, of course) They should have continuity -- replace them if open. They should be available at www.appliancepartspros.com Also, if one or both are bad, check the dryer vent as they often are damaged by high heat due to a restricted vent pipe. The website above also has diagrams to help find the parts on the machine.

Maytag mde5500ayw,,,, have interior light and display will light up, but unit will not start???


hello. begin by looking closely at the latch on the door. if it has lint in it clean it thoroughly, vacuum the area and see it it will start up.

if not read on:

If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house
Door switch
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

The door switch is likely stuck or jammed by some piece of material or lint build-up. you need to locate the switch, clear the debris away and make sure that the door pin is the only thing that pushes it in.
