Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
HI. I will need the entire model number that is printed on this unit, if possible. This will allow me to pull up the necessary part numbers and explode diagrams needed. I suspect that the motor may be the likely culprit, but to be sure, you will need to inspect the door switch circuit for damage.I will also instruct you on how to test the motor, as well.
Please post the entire model number, asap...

Thanks for using FixYa. As everything else seems to be working fine then it seems to be an issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Also, often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Jennifer Christie, thank you for your post!
I see that you have replaced the belt and bearing drum in your Frigidaire dryer but the unit does not start. It sounds like you could be experiencing an issue within the motor or timer. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose and repair your appliance, to avoid any further unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Hello tancrbtt - It sounds like your unit may have one or more problems. Either the belt slipped off the idle pulley and/or dryer belt and needs replacing, a faulty motor or a common failure between control and motor. Consult a professional to accurately diagnosis the dryer and to assist with the repairs.
