Question about Dryers
The door switch is a good start but UNPLUG DRYER and under the top of the dryer is a thermal limit switch lift the top using a putty knife on each side of the lid raise it and on the left rear you will see the element look under the wires going to the element (straight down) you will see a limit switch with two wires on it remove these wires and plug them into each other.make sure they dont hit the frame and plug dryer back in and try to start it if it starts replace the thermal fuse you can tape these wires together with electrical tape and use it until you get the fuse but dont wait 6 months to do so it could cause a fire .Good Luck

The thermal cut-out is located on the side of the heater housing assm. To gain access you need to use a putty knife to depress the two spring clips between the top and the front panel and raise the top. The heater is on the back wall. The part number for the t-stat and thermal cut-out kit is LA-1053 and is about $20.00. Don't forget to clean your vent, and check your blower assm. Either one could have caused the problem.
