The thermal fuse may be blown. The fuse is a white plastic item located behind the back cover on the blower box housing. It has two blue leads attached to it.

  1. Unplug the dryer.
  2. Remove the back cover.
  3. Identify the thermal fuse (white, two blue leads, one screw)
  4. Remove the two blue leads.
  5. Using a multimeter set to ohms, check the continuity of the fuse, it should "peg" the meter if the fuse is good, if the meter does not react, the fuse is blown.
  6. Remove and replace the fuse. Replacements can be found either online or at your nearest Sears.

SOUNDS LIKE A BAD MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH. USUALLY WILL RUN ONE LOAD AND THEN TURN OFF AND A HOUR HOUR LATER IT WILL WORK AGAIN UNTIL IT OVER HEATS AGAI.N

ALSO CHECK FOR BROKEN OR SHORTED HEATING ELEMENT
DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot or not heat at all. . If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

HI LIMIT THERMOSTAT DEFECTIVE? SHOULD SHOW OHMS AT ROOM TEMPERATURE


Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Started drying load, dryer shut off. won't turn on. checked door, changed thermal fuse, checked breaker. still doesn't work. light also not on.


If this is an electric dryer, you may have lost half of the power supply to it. Unplug and remove the little cover plate above where the power cord enters the dryer. Look at the 3 screws holding on the power cord for burned/black looking or loose connections. If nothing wrong there, shut off house breaker and remove cover on house plug where you plug the dryer into and look for same type of issues.

I have had my whirlpool dryer about 4yrs + (geq9800pw2) has always worked fine. Last week it started tripping ckt breaker toward the end of drying cycle. As of this morning, it blows ckt breaker...


leave off the oven and a/c breakers and plug dryer and reset the breaker. if not tripping occurs then one at a time trip back the oven first. if no trip then trip off again and trip the a/c. if no trip then trip the oven back. if trip you may have a wire problem. if dryer trip any way then possibly you have a short in dryer. check the heating element wires,power cord at the dryer side(terminal block).

The dryer wont show any sign of power. The plug works fine


Hi,


Press and hold start button for 4-5 seconds.Make sure that the start button has been fully pushed down or turned far enough to activate the dryer.

After that plug something else into the same outlet. If it works, you know you have power to the dryer. If it doesn’t work, you’ll need to check for any blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers.


If the power is there, you need to check door switch, thermal fuse, thermostats, and start switch to see if one of these is faulty.
Make sure that the control settings are appropriate, and that any buttons are fully depressed.


Good Luck and have a nice day.

We just finished a load in the dryer and it worked fine. When we went to start another load it wouldn't start. The circuit works, it is plugged in, and the door is shut


Are your lint traps clean? Also, your vent hose going out the back of the dryer sometimes gets clogged up, and this will shut down your dryer until it is cleaned out. Try this, and if it still doesn't work - try shutting the dryer's circuit breaker off (or if its easier to unplug the dryer), and then back on again. This will reset the breaker, and then you can try running your dryer again. In fact, you can do the circuit breaker step first. If this doesn't work, then clean the lint trap, vent, etc. - and then return to the circuit breaker step. I hope this works for you. If not, let me know. I'll check back with you in a little bit. Good Luck!  Jim

Dryer was working fine this afternoon. I tried to


Check for a blown thermal fuse. It is about one inch long and is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. It can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity indicates a blown thermal fuse and it will have to be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer quit working - will not do anything when "start" button is pressed


It would help to have the model number. the model number is on the front panel that the door shuts to. Have you checked your breaker? If your breaker is fine and you are getting power to the machine write back with your model number and I will try to help.

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...


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!

Let me know how it goes!
