Hi


When the dryer wont turn on the issue is with the Thermal fuse which is located on the back cover panel to the exhaust duct. Before replacing it you can test continuity and check to make sure that the power is getting to the unit. Hope this help...please let me know if you require further assistance.

My g.e electric dryer won't start and the light bulb is not coming on mod # dbxr 463


Since the light is not coming on either, check the curcuit breaker first. It can be half tripped and look like it is good. That should be the problem. If not, then check the power at the outlet and at the dryer. Turn power OFF when taking cover off dryer. 220v Hurts.

I have an electric Kenmore dryer that wont turn on


Hi,
  • Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

  • If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

  • Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Hope this will fix your problem for sure.

Won't start all of a sudden. Power is getting to the unit, no breakers thrown. Interior light works... just won't run. What do I check first? GE model DPSR475EWOWW


First, find your breaker box and locate the breaker that runs the dryer. Now flip the breaker off and then back on. Now try the dryer. If it made not change. Gain access to the back of dryer. There is a small panel toward the bottom that you can take off. After unplugging the dryer, take the little panel off. Look inside and check the belt. Make sure it is tight and still going around the motor shaft and pulley. With this model, there is a switch that turns the dryer off so that it will not run when the belt comes off. If the belt is on, you will have a bad thermal fuse and bad cycling thermostat. The thermal fuse is located on the top of the element housing and the cycling thermostat is located on the blower housing. When the cycling thermostat goes out the dryer then cycles on the thermal fuse until it goes bad. This then cuts the power on one leg of the 220V coming to the dryer. Remember, a dryer runs off of 220vs. This consist of two 110v legs. The element is the only component inside the dryer that works off of both 110v legs. Some component work off of one leg and the other component work off the other. When you loose one leg, some things will work and others will not. I hope this makes since. It's the best way I can explain it. If I can explain any of this or help anymore, please send a comment back to me.
Please rate solution and good luck.

I have a Whirlpool dryer Model # LGR7648K20 that just stopped heating. THE DRUM TURNS BUT IT WILL NOT HEAT.


Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to Good luck

Won't power on


U have only 120 vac, need 240 vac. Turn the 30 amp breakers hard to off then back on. Should do the trick

Sounds like a wire problem. Frist unplug the unit. Then take the cover off where the wires go in the back to check for a burnt wire. If that is ok you need an amp meter to check for the heater amp draw. You could have a weak breaker.
