SOURCE: Clothes put in dryer, power
The dryer doesn't operate because the motor is not running and this is commonly caused by the blown thermal fuse which is located on the blower housing. This thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and if it is blown open, power to the motor is cut and it will not run. Disconnect power then access and bypass the
thermal fuse on the blower housing. The blower housing is located on the
front left bottom of the dryer cabinet if the dryer has the lint filter
on the front or at the rear left bottom if the lint filter is located
on the top of the cabinet.
Dryers with lint filter on the front.
Dryers with lint filter on the top.
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 other part (thermistor or cycling thermostat) on the blower housing if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.
