This is usually a symptom of a thermal fuse that has blown. A blown thermal fuse is a symptom of other problems (usually). That is to say that they generally blow for a reason. The most common cause is a dirty dryer and/or clogged vent duct. If it's been a while since you've cleaned your dryer and/or the vent duct, you might want to do so BEFORE you replace a thermal fuse. Or, the problem will persist. If your heating element is in the rear of the dryer, the thermal fuse will be located on the blower fan housing on the left hand side of the dryer. It is white in color. If the heating element is located inside the dryer under the drum, the thermal fuse will be located on the blower fan housing right under the drum in the front of the dryer. The fuse should read a short. If it does not, you need to replace it. It is not resettable. Let me know if you have any further questions. I hope this helps you.

A week old dryer should have, in its warranty, a condition that you can get them to exchange this for an identical (hopefully working) model free. Do it now, that is a short time window. It's usually one month.
You vent is plugged very bad. Disconnect the vent tubing and thoroughly clean it out. It will heat and dry like new afterwards guaranteed. These dryers have sensors that shut the burner off if the exhaust is not venting properly. Once its cleared out it will run perfectly again
OK, your control board and LED are integrated, so you will need to just replace the control board. I would try a hard reset before replacing the board. Pull the plug or, shut down the appropriate breaker switch for 5 minutes. Re apply power after the 5 minutes are up. if you continue to experience this fault, replace the control board asap.
If the drier drum is still turning I would suspect a separate fuse is open for the heating element. Checking this may require openning the back cover. It may also be a defective or open heating element.
Hello mdonettaYou said, Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer
acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start
button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked
okay. Any ideas.
yes, try unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes. Either will due. Some times the system needs to be reset! If this does not work there are internal fuses that can be replaced!
The dryer has an overfill cutout if you start and hold in the start button you should hear the pump come on,and pump the water out. then the dryer will start.if it happens again you may have a blockage in the black drain hose take the top panel off and blow down it,or the pump itself could be faulty.(if the dryer is sitting on the floor you have to drain the water into the drawer, if its mounted ontop of a washing machine you can connect the long bkack hose to the sink.
