Hello there:
It doesn't work at all If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)
Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

Model 87577800 sock went thru the lint vent


The model number you have listed has the dryer vent on top of the dryer. Small items commonly fall down into the vent chute on these dryers. Articles can easily be retrieved by following these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltage is still present inside a dryer even when it is turned off.

2. Remove the lint screen and remove the two screws that connect the vent chute to the top panel.

3. Turn the dryer around so you can access the rear, and remove the exhaust vent hose.

4. Locate and loosen all the screws from the perimeter of the dryer back panel.

5. Remove the back panel of the dryer.

The air blower assembly and dryer vent chute are located on the left hand side (as viewed from the rear of the dryer). Remove the screws that hold the vent chute in place and you will be able to access anything that has fallen into it.

NOTE: Anything left in the vent can eventually get caught in the blower fan. So, it is important to retrieve anything caught in this area to prevent damage to the fan and to ensure the dryer ventilates properly.

If you have any questions about these procedures, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

The gas dryer won't stay heated up.


Do you have stacked clothes on top of it or anything else? If so remove those items and never put anything on there. it's not a table it needs to be clear so heat can dissipate from cabinet. IF that doesn't solve it write bac
