The problem is likely a blown thermal fuse. This thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and if it blows, power to the motor is terminated and the motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the motor cannot run.
Disconnect power then access and bypass the
thermal fuse on the blower housing. The blower housing is located on the
front left bottom of the dryer cabinet if the dryer has the lint filter
on the front or at the rear left bottom if the lint filter is located
on the top of the cabinet.
Dryers with lint filter on the front.
Dryers with lint filter on the top.
the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them
together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal
fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced if the dryer starts. Do
not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.
Let us know if the problem is not addressed above but indicate the exact model number of the machine for further advice.
Hello. i can help you. begin by checking the power.
Power from the house
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 that doesnt get it working again get back as there are other things that could have gone wrong.
try unplug and plug back in first let it reset and if that dont work, check thermal fuse may be blown..the fuse located in the back next to the fan in the housing. If fuse blown unit not work, if you go to www.appliancepartspros.com choose your model and it will give diagram of location termal fuse. check fuse first make sure is blown before you order it.
Since the vent was filled with lint I would check the High Limit termal fuse located on the front of the heater asm. It is best to replace the fuse and thermostat. These parts are part of a kit that can be purchased from your local supplier. The heater asm is located in trhe bottom left of the dryer. and looks like this
My dryer light comes on for my Maytag SDE4606AYW dryer when you open the door and I can hear the timer clicking but when I hit start the motor doesn't even attempt to start but there is obviously power. My dad just installed a new power cord to the dryer but this is a seperate issue as we were obviously unable to check the motor before we got a cord for it. He has years of electrical experience so I'm assuming he connected the new cord right. Any ideas on fuses in the dryer or why it may not be getting power?
