Question about Dryers
Hello. Thanks for choosing Fixya! Since you have already checked the breaker, you have eliminated that as one of the possibilities... very good. Now there are actually three other possible causes
1. The door switch or the actuator could be bad. These items must be replaced if faulty. In order to check them you have to raise or open the top of the front.
2. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. The test for the thermal fuse is a continuity test. if it is bad it must be replaced.
3. Check the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, look for burns and the connection breaking. In this has happened, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Best regards, Joe
