This is called a thermal fuse located beside your fan in the back. Unplug dryer, remove back panel, little white plastic fuse with 2 wires running to it. Cost is about 10.00 bucks. Rate me if I am correct. Good luck!

My dryer doesnt go on. The front panel still clicks and when i push start button it buzzes but doesnt go


Belt, fuse, door switch, timer switch, something caught on the drum (all sorts of things get caught back there), heat sensor (depending on the age, had one that had a heat sensor would turn the dryer off, if told the computer dryer was overheating even though had not been running), bad motor, bad motherboard for dryer (again depending on age of dryer)

My estate gas dryer isn't working, i hear timer, but motor not turning


Door switch, broken belt maybe. The way it works if the fuse on back is ok and their are no obstructions which might cause a fire, the motor must be turning in order for the centrifugal switch inside it to allow power to the gas assembly. If that same fuse was blown however no power would get to the gas assembly but the dryer will still run. Based on that I would say you have a bad door switch. if not that then it is down to a bad motor or a bad timer. In the case of the timer it is a strong possibility the knob could be broken or the stem inside the timer itself is not advancing the cam and therefore the machine will not start. I saw that one just last week. Them timers are crappy on them machines.

Won't start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Dryer want come on when you set timer


could be thermal fuse or bad start switch

G.e. Profile gas dryer, wont turn on but has power


Some GE dryers use a non-resettable thermal fuse. It is a dime sized object with two wires attached on the top of the element housing. (Unplug dryer, take screws out or push in clips holding dryer top down at the front of the dryer top, swing top back, see thermal fuse near very back) Newer dryers use an automatic resetting thermal fuse. The replacement part for either will be the same auto resetting one. Your problem could be several other spots, however. Check for 240 volts at dryer. (not just 120) When you swing that top up, make sure the belt is there going around the drum. (if belt broke, it switches off power on most dryers) Could be a door switch, internal motor switch, timer contacts, bad start switch, burnt off / broken wire, maybe just a stripped over start knob.

If you find that the thermal fuse was the problem, you still should clean out the vent and eliminate all or as much flex duct as possible to prevent the thermal fuse from tripping again.
