Re: dryer won't tumble

Check thermal fuse located behind rear panel mounted on dryer (depending on model of the dryer) duct. Fuse is the component with 2 blue wires and is white in color. Try jumping 2 wires together or OHM out fuse. Fuse being bad is a sign that either
a) Dryer vent is clogged ..... If dryer takes any longer than 1 60 min cycle to dry loads than the vent IS CLOGGED!!
b) Dryer thermostat (next to fuse with 4 wires 2lg red and 2sm)
is not cycling proper
c) some other electrical short causing element not to cycle proper

Check Temp of discharge air with thermometer
on High should cycle on somewhere around 120
and back off at no higher than 170 no less than 155

Electric Whirlpool dryer won't cool down during drying cycle and even gets hot during air fluff cycle. Replaced thermal fuse and is still the same.

There are two thermostats on my whirlpool model number 857554115010.
Both should be replaced at the same time.
I found a good video on
I bought the parts from them and it worked.

The drum won't tumble until you spin it manually and then push the start button

You have a broken centrifugal switch on the motor. The motor needs to be replaced.
