    Our dryer is 2 months old. I took out some towels and the dryer was very hot & smelled. Later that evening my husband went to check on the dryer because he could smell a "burning odor" the heat was still going even though the power button was turned off. He unpluged the machine for safety reasons. The next morning when he plugged the machine in to the socket it imediately started heating up even though no one had pushed the power button.

We've had pretty much every problem you could have with this dryer.

Buy a different brand and send your fisher-junkel to the scrap yard.

Kenmore 90 series dryer runs fine until I put clothes in it then it shuts off after I let go of start button


If you are lucky, it is just a heater relay.

You can actually use the motor relay to test if the heater relay is bad, by switching them around. They are interchangeable!
Below is a parts layout for reference.

  1. Unplug power
  2. Then pry the left end cap loose
  3. Remove the philips screw holding the control panel
  4. Remove the back panel plate to inspect, see below diagram:

If the dryer stays running when you push "start", you must replace the heater relay!

Note: Do not run your dryer until you have all returned the wires to their proper relays...

Can you please tell me where the reset button is ? I hate to pay someone $100 to do this. Thanks, Jo Ann Deloy


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

While I don't have a video or diagram I can tell you on the LG dryers there is indeed a "reset" for the heating/burner funnel (as you obviously know) on the right hand side of the funnel, however they also incorporate a no reset "hi-limit thermostat" on the left side of the funnel. Once it is tripped it must be replaced. This is only present on the gas dryers.

It is located on the left side as I mentioned, but the other is on the right side of the heater housing/burner funnel and will resemble the images shown below.


It is part number 6931EL3004B ( the reset type is part # 6931EL3003C ) and available at "searspartsdirect" (which also has a illustration which may help you) or "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.

i.e. NON-RESET

i.e. RESETTABLE

With the aid of an ohm meter you can check the non-reset for continuity, the other you should be able to push the center reset button ( listen closely for a "click" ) but it too can be ohmed out for continuity to confirm or dismiss it's condition.


Hope that help`s move you forward. If so please take a second and rate the guidance and a testimony to the assistance you received here at FixYa, either or all is appreciated.

Let me know if you need any further info and I'll continue to help in any manner I can. Good luck

I have a whirlpool LEC6646aq2. Noticed a burning smell inside drum.The dryer baffle inside the drum was completely melted. The timer was stuck on 20 minutes and the heating element was full on . The...


it sounds like one of the coils on the heating element could be touching metal and grounding out constantly running until you shut it down manually,when the heater is on the timer doesn't move until the heat shuts off,then the timer advances,when the machine calls for heat again the timer stops and the heat comes back on,it does this until the timer reaches zero but in your case the heater isn't shutting down and is keeping the timer from advancing.the filter is on the top of your dryer so unplug it,pull it out remove the ventline from the back of the dryer and remove the back panel,you'll see the heating element on the right side,also with a meter check the thermostats on the heater box,when checking any part at least one wire has to be diconnected or you won't get a correct reading,check for continuity on all the parts on the heater box,when the dryer is running correctly say you have a blocked vent line,when the dryer starts running hotter than normal the thermal fuse or the high limit thermostat will pop,the thermal fuse is the white piece to the right of the lint filter duct and the hgh limit is the top thermostat on the heater box,but with the element grounding out nothing will shut it down until you manually cut the power by moving the timer to off,if it melted the baffle you could have damaged other parts like the motor,check the rear end of the drum and see if there's like yellow on it or lint stuck to it where it touches the back wall,if there is then the oil from the motor sprayed out and the motor could last for a week or 5 years but the overheating most likely damaged it,if the dryer is old you might want to think of buying a new dryer instead of repairing it and then you have problems with something else like the motor or changing out thermostats in a month or two but you have to make that call,good luck and let me know what you find

I have a Bosch 500 plus model. I was drying a blanket by itself when the dryer just shut off. The blanket was in a ball. I spread it out and turned the dryer back on and it wouldn't start. No error codes...


The motor tripped..The wiring diagram for the dryer is inside the back cover tie-wrapped to the frame as it sounds like the motor has a trip on it:
To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

First the dryer stopped heating, then when the reset button was pushed it started drying again, but now the heat will not shut off without unplugging the dryer


This is a situation that you need to be very careful with. It sounds like you have a grounded heating element. If this is the case, then the current can be running through the dryer's frame and can cause electrical shock. Keep the dryer unplugged and check the heating element for continuity. If it has none, replace the heating element. BE CAREFUL. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Reset button keeps popping out causing dryer to cool down and no heat until pushed back in?


most common cause for heater overheat, and reset, is lint build up in the exhaust line, reduces air flow, the air gets hotter than designed, and resets pop.
some lint always gets past the screen and lodges in the fan and ducting and vent hood.
examine and clear the above, all the way to the wall, and problem should cease.

I had the same problem. Turns out the reset button on the back of the dryer needs to be pushed; when you push the reset button you should hear a click. If you do not hear a click the problem was probably not the reset button. The button shuts down the dryer heating elements if they are getting too hot and also keeps the drum from turning unless the start button is held down.

If you push the reset button and the dryer starts to work again, I strongly recommend that you stop the dryer and investigate why the heater elements overheated. In my case there was lint/hair build up on the heater elements themselves. Extensive dryer disassembly is required to properly clean the heating elements but it is worth the prevention of a house fire. While you're at it, clean the rest of the machine and the duct work.

Hope this helps

Not heating


It is probably a thermal fuse. Take off the back of the dryer and you will see it on the lint outlet tube. It is white and is 1/2 inches wide and 2 inches long. It has two leads coming out hooked to wires. To check it just pull one of the leads off, turn on the dryer and touch the wire you took off to the other one and the burner should come on. It costs $12 at a parts store.
