Question about Dryers
The issue is with the thermal fuse mounted on the blower housing alongside with a cycling thermostat. The thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor circuit, making the motor not run when it fails. Bypass the thermal fuse and if the dryer runs, it is definitely blown and must be replaced. Otherwise, the issue is either in the timer, start button, or the motor itself.
The cycling the thermostat must also be replaced when replacing a blown thermal fuse. It is due to the fact that a blown thermal fuse is a sign of a failed cycling thermostat. It fails to cycle the heater properly which leads to the blowing of the thermal fuse.
