Question about Whirlpool Dryers
dryer function works when the motor cannot run and the common issue is a
blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing and wired in series
with the motor. There will be no power to the motor when the thermal
fuse blows and the motor cannot therefore run. Bypass the thermal fuse
and if the motor runs, the thermal use is indeed blown and needs to be
replaced. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse blown due to fire
Disconnect power then open the dryer door and remove the lint filter. Remove the screws from the toe panel and remove the panel. Remove the screws securing the lint duct and remove the duct.
The thermal fuse can now be bypassed or replaced if necessary.
Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and taping them together or jumping a wire between them. Once done, plug the dryer in then start it. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced if the dryer runs. The thermal fuse is part number 3390719. Reassemble the dryer in reverse order of the disassembly steps.
