Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak II front-loading dryer does not heat up

What do I need to do to fix this problem? Is it a thermal fuze problem or can it be other things? If other things, please tell me what to look for.

Yes, I find that 8 out of 10 times it is the thermal fuse. it could also be the heating element.. Take back of dryer cover off.. Fuse is white with two of the same color wires going to it. You can tape wires toghter and then start the machine to see if it heats. There is one more fuse on machine and it is small the size of a dime. DIME size.. not quater size.

First, check breaker and make sure your fuses are on... Electric dryers run on 220 volts therefore if one breaker is flipped it will turn but not heat.......... if it doesnt solve problem let me know and i will assist futher

Why does the thermal fuse continue to blow.

The thermal switch is trying to tell you that something is getting too hot. Maybe you need to clean out the dryer exhaust duct from within the dryer all the way to the outside.

I replaced the thermal fuze in my kenmore gas dryer. Now not only does the dryer not FIRE up, but when I push the button to start the dryer, it will not fire and will shut off shortly after. When I let go...

when you start the dryer does the igniter glow red hot? they crack very easy.If you are sure you put the wires on the fuse the right way,and the igniter is glowing, and you remembered to turn the gas back on,( I've done that ), no kinks in the gas line.The next thing I would look at is the gas vavle, or coils. good luck.

Will not start

it is likely the Thermal Fuse, LA 1053 kit for Performa Electric Dryers. You have to open the case, remove the drum, Loose the back panel and remove the Heater element case. The Fusible Thermostat is on mounted on the side of the heating element case.
