Question about Dryers
Whirlpool dryer won't tumble. Replaced push start parts. Still no tumble
Check thermal fuse located behind rear panel mounted on dryer (depending on model of the dryer) duct. Fuse is the component with 2 blue wires and is white in color. Try jumping 2 wires together or OHM out fuse. Fuse being bad is a sign that either
a) Dryer vent is clogged ..... If dryer takes any longer than 1 60 min cycle to dry loads than the vent IS CLOGGED!!
b) Dryer thermostat (next to fuse with 4 wires 2lg red and 2sm)
is not cycling proper
c) some other electrical short causing element not to cycle proper
Check Temp of discharge air with thermometer
on High should cycle on somewhere around 120
and back off at no higher than 170 no less than 155
