Question about Dryers
NO RESET ON THE DRYER,BUT SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM IN YOUR FUSE BOX. IF YOU HAVE A VOLT METER, CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE DRYER OUTLET. IF YOU HAVE 240VOLTS, THERE ARE A FEW ITEMS THAT WILL KEEP THE DRYER FROM RUNNING.
MOST COMMON FAILURE IS THE THERMAL FUSE LOCATED BEHIND THE BACK PANEL DOWN NEAR THE EXHAUST DUCT. IT USUALLY IS WHITE WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. IF IT IS BAD YOU WILL MEASURE 120 VOLTS AT THE TWO TERMINALS OF THE FUSE. YOU CAN JUMPER THE TWO WIRES TOGETHER, BUT MAKE SURE YOU AND THE WIRES ARE ISOLATED FROM EACH OTHER AND GROUND.
IF IT IS BAD , THE DRYER WILL RUN WITH THE WIRES JUMPED AND THE START BUTTON PUSHED.
REPLACE THE THERMAL FUSE.
