Question about Kenmore 45081 Front Load Washer / Dryer
Dryer panel clicks like its turning on but doesn't. What could be the problem?
Probably a thermal fuse. You'll need a continuity meter to check it, though. Once you get one, unplug it. Remove the lower panel on the front. Beneath where the lint filter sits is your lint duct. Remove it (screws at top left and right and clip at botom center) Behind it is a white peice of plastic with 2 blue wires. Unplug them and check across the two prongs on the white thermal fuse to see if it is good. Replace if nessciary. If it is bad check your vent (dryer to wall and wall to outside) for restrictions or blockages.

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...
