Question about Kenmore 62822 Electric Dryer
The thermal fuse has blown. If I by-pass the fuse the drum will turn, but for some reason the heating element starts up with the door opened or closed when the dryer is on a heated cycle. It also heats up whether I by-pass the thermal fuse or not. The drum does not turn when I just close the door & push the start button. Help!!
Check your heating element to see if it is shorted to ground.
The element has 110V to it all the time, so if the element shorts to ground it will heat all the time. This is a fairly common failure.
If the element is ok, you may have a stuck centrifigul switch inside the motor, this is very rare but does happen sometimes.
Post back to let me know what you find or if you have any questions.
