Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer is BROKEN

The dryer just stopped working. I have reset the fuse box and still not working. The barrel doesn't spin, I've also unplugged it and tried again but it's not working at all. What could be the problem. Does a dryer have a fuse that need to be replaced inside of it?

If your dryer works but no heat


whirlpool,kenmore,roper,kitchenaid,inglis,if your dryer works but no heat most of the time it is a blown fuse,or bad heating coil,cause of a blown fuse can be power surge,clogged wall vent,clogged dryer lint vent box,unplug,remove back cover,look to your right and you will see the heater box,look on the left side near the top and you will see a small fuse,this is your heater box fuse,if not the fuse,the heating coil is near the bottom,1 screw on each side,remove and look for broken wire,if you have a meter,you can check the fuse and heater coil-mike

Dryer drum doesn't spin


If the motor runs and the drum doesn't turn then most likely the belt is broken.

My fisher & paykel model ad39 dryer has stopped working


Always unplug the appliance before working on it.
I would suggest checking the circuit breaker in the breaker box for your apartment, to see if it has tripped. You have probably already done this, but try to reset (open all the way and then close) the circuit breaker. Plug the power cord in again and try to operate the dryer.
If it trips the circuit breaker again, there is a short circuit or a ground, and you should unplug the machine and diagnose the problem. 240 volts AC, when shorted or grounded can start fires or kill people.
Many Dryers are equipped with a "non-resettable thermal fuse". When the air being blown through the dryer gets too hot, this thing melts and opens up the entire power circuit.The dyer doesn't do anything, as if it had no power.
This non-resettable thermal fuse can usually be purchased from the manufacturer or a good appliance supply store, and comes in a kit which also includes a new thermostat, to replace the one that probably failed and overheated the machine to start with.
Get a friend who is an Electrician to help you if you are at all unsure of replacing parts in your power circuit. Be sure to unplug the machine / use a VOM to check it dead before you touch anything electrical. BE SAFE. 240 Volts AC is not just playing around.

Whirlpool electric dryer LER5620KQ1. won't heat up timer does not advance


Same problem with my Whirlpool Dryer: Model LER4634EZ2 which stopped heating. I checked the coils that was "OK" then I checked the fuse that was "OK" I replaced the Thermal Fuse and High Limit Thermostat then after starting the dryer the heat came on ... problem solved NO.... the dryer just kept running and running until I opened the dryer door. Not going to put 70 or so $$$ into this 10 year old dryer which up until 12/15/2011 worked fine.

I have a kenmore dryer everything works but when i hit start button it doesnt go


Check the Thermal Fuse with a multimeter for continuity, but MAKE SURE THE DRYER IS UNPLUGGED FIRST. If your dryer hose is clogged the dryer will overheat and blow this fuse. If it is the fuse, make sure you clean out your lint trap and dryer hose after replacing the fuse. If the fuse is not the culprit check to see if the motor belt that spins the drum is broken.

Heat doesn't work ..dryer spins but no heat is produced


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Whirlpool Dryer, Heats up, but will not spin.


Thermal fuse , is the small white plastic piece on the blower box . That , keeps the dryer from running . Thermal cut-off , is the small thermostat on the burner (element) box , which would keep the dryer from heating .
