The door switch must be checked for continuity. The thermal overload fuse near the heating element must be checked for continuity. If either has no continuity it is a bad part and must be replaced.

Stop running,no door light or motor running.


Check panel for tripped breaker. Check with a volt meter that you have 2 legs of 125v to back of dryer. See youtube for demonstration of testing. Can you hear the timer run? It is pretty quiet, but is a ticking noise.

My cye3004ayw was taking 2times to dry then it blew cold air so i cleaned the back of dryer worked cold air 1time hot now it dont start at all no light makes noise when timer is on also i noticed when no...


Well.. you probably smoked a high limit that controls your heating element.. which controls the whole machine. This part isn't very expensive, but it is a task to get to. You're hearing your timer because it's designed like a kitchen timer (no power). If you're uncomfortable doing this yourself (don't play with 220 if you're inexperienced).
