Question about Kenmore Dryers
Checked and reset breaker with no result. Door switch began malfunctioning months ago... tumbled even with door open. I planned to replace the dryer soon as it is very old and noisy. Is there a way to check power to the outlet without a multimeter?
Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.
To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

Pull the dryer out and unplug. At the bottom left of the back you will see your blower housing. on it you will see a 1 inch by 1/2 inch white thermal cut out. This is the part you are looking for. it is part number 3392519
This part is available and cost$18.00 to ship it to your door.

SOURCE: Dryer wont start
Ok are you saying that the fuse from end to end has 120V? Even if it reads continuity; if its reading 120V from end to end, the fuse is bad. replace it before you do anything else. and on electric dryers you should have 220v across both top and bottoms of fuses with power applied to the fuses. Any readings beyond or lower indicate a blown fues. But the correct way to check a fuse is with power applied and from end to end of the same fuse. A -0- reading or <10 v is ok with an electronic vom but trust me if its getting 120v end to end (on the same fuse) the fuse is out.
IUf this helped you please rate me accordingly and good luck.

2 more things could be wrong,check the blower box to see if you have a thermister thermostat on it,check that with your omns meter,the other thing is the motor is no longer strong enough to turn the drum and it heat up and tips off,let me know what you find-mike
