Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems to be the Thermal fuse that has gone bad, dont think it is the heating element. The thermal fuse is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. When this fuse goes bad it should be replaced as it cannot be repaired. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

you need to inspect the ignitor/glow coil that ignites the gas in the burner tube as they are very fragile,then on the burner tube body check the radint sensor eye it can be dirty,clean it first or then replace it,the gas valve boost and secondary coils on the gas valve could have been damaged and they keep the gas valve open to supply gas to the burner,then also check the thermal fuse on the vent blower housing as water could have ruined this component,also check all wire connections for water corrosion too

It sounds like the motor was damaged in the flood. You may be able to salvage it by spraying both ends of the motor shaft with penetrating oil several times moving it in between, but you may not be able to salvage it.

My GE dryer will not heat up after flood damage


Hello chucky40,
There is a good chance that your gas valve has been damaged by the water. Can you tell if after you try starting it if the igniter comes on and/or you have gas flow to the burner? Those are the prime suspects ( albeit not the only ones) but you will need to verify these basic functions before others can be examined..
Keep me posted and I'll try to help you get thru this..
Regards,
Rick
