Duet dryer wont start beeps and sensing lights up!


Its likely your thermal fuse is out.

Disconnect the power! Remove the lint filter screen. Remove the two screws from the bottom flange of the toe panel. Pull the toe panel out at the bottom, pull down, and remove the panel. Remove the screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two screws from the lint duct and remove the duct.

Then you will see the white thermal fuse on your blower wheel housing. You can jump it with an alligator clip or take the wires off the thermal fuse and use electrical tape to tape them together to see if it comes on. DON'T LEAVE IT JUMPED TO RUN A CYCLE, order a new one.
Here is a the part.

This is a common problem caused by the thermal fuse blown. The thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and will cause the motor not running if it blows. It is located on the blower housing at the rear of the dryer. Remove the rear panel to access the thermal fuse.

Once the rear panel is off, refer to the diagram and locate the thermal fuse on the blower housing. Disconnect the thermal fuse wires and tape them together or jump a wire between them. Insulate them properly then plug the dryer in and start the dryer.



The thermal fuse (part number 3392519) is indeed blown and needs to be replaced including the cycling thermostat, (part number 3387134) also on the blower housing if the dryer start starts and works fine with the thermal fuse bypassed. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.

Feel free to update us about the result and development of the troubleshooting. Let us know of you need further assistance regarding the issue with your dryer. Rate the solution if you find it helpful.

I press start and it won't start. It sounds like a clock ticking


The usual cause of this problem is a blown thermal fuse which is located on the blower housing. It is wired in series with the motor and the dryer will definitely not start if the thermal fuse is blown. Disconnect power to the dryer then remove the rear access panel by removing the screws securing it to the cabinet.

Once the access panel is removed, look for the thermal fuse on the blower housing as shown.

Bypass the thermal fuse by taping together the wires connected to its terminals or jumping a wire between the wires then plug in and start the dryer. The thermal fuse (part number 3392519) is indeed blown and needs to be replaced together with the cycling thermostat (part number 3387134) if the the starts with the thermal fuse bypassed.

Simply unscrew both parts then screw the new parts in place. It's better not to disconnect the wires yet until the new parts are secured then connect the wires to where it should be connected on the newly installed parts. This avoids messing up the wires upon reconnection.

Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed to avoid incurring further damage to other components and due to fire hazard reasons.

My Whirlpool dryer(supreme) does not start. The timer switch, door switch, start switch can all be heard to electronically switch on and off when I turn the timer around and open and close the door....


the thermal fuse may be faulty. Remove the outer back of the dryer. the thermal fuse is located on the blower assy with 2 wires connected to it. It is white plastic. connect the wires together, then try to start the unit again. If the unit starts, clean the exhaust duct after replacing the thermal fuse.

Dryer won't run.kenmore 80 series


If you have voltage go to the door switch 1st. Make sure there is a clicking when you push the switch manually. If there is remove back panel and you will see a white plastic connetion with 2 wires, this is a safety thermal,(fuse). If you don't have a meter then jump these 2 wires together making sure not touch the cabinet then plug unit in and see if it will start.

Check the thermal fuse on the rear of the dryer.
Remove the rear panel. The thermal fuse is 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide. White in color and located just left of the dryer exhaust vent. 2 purple wires. Jump the wires together and start the dryer. If it runs, replace the thermal fuse.

Will not start,door and wall plug in place in the past it went when i switched the switch in hthe fuse panel, but not this time. is there a reset on the dryer?


NO RESET ON THE DRYER,BUT SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM IN YOUR FUSE BOX. IF YOU HAVE A VOLT METER, CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE DRYER OUTLET. IF YOU HAVE 240VOLTS, THERE ARE A FEW ITEMS THAT WILL KEEP THE DRYER FROM RUNNING.
MOST COMMON FAILURE IS THE THERMAL FUSE LOCATED BEHIND THE BACK PANEL DOWN NEAR THE EXHAUST DUCT. IT USUALLY IS WHITE WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. IF IT IS BAD YOU WILL MEASURE 120 VOLTS AT THE TWO TERMINALS OF THE FUSE. YOU CAN JUMPER THE TWO WIRES TOGETHER, BUT MAKE SURE YOU AND THE WIRES ARE ISOLATED FROM EACH OTHER AND GROUND.
IF IT IS BAD , THE DRYER WILL RUN WITH THE WIRES JUMPED AND THE START BUTTON PUSHED.
REPLACE THE THERMAL FUSE.

Dryer won't tumble


Check thermal fuse located behind rear panel mounted on dryer (depending on model of the dryer) duct. Fuse is the component with 2 blue wires and is white in color. Try jumping 2 wires together or OHM out fuse. Fuse being bad is a sign that either
a) Dryer vent is clogged ..... If dryer takes any longer than 1 60 min cycle to dry loads than the vent IS CLOGGED!!
b) Dryer thermostat (next to fuse with 4 wires 2lg red and 2sm)
is not cycling proper
c) some other electrical short causing element not to cycle proper

Check Temp of discharge air with thermometer
on High should cycle on somewhere around 120
and back off at no higher than 170 no less than 155
