My dryer doesn't start anymore. I put the settings on and when I push the start button, it beeps once and doesn't start. Could this be a problem with the thermal fuse and thermostat like some of the others? Thanks.
You would need to take off the lower front access panel under your door, then take off the duct assembly#45, by removing the two #2 screws, and you may also have a screw at the very bottom of the duct assembly with a bracket#11 attached to it, remove that one also.
If your thermal fuse is fine next check your door switch.
We've had a few members report door switch problems.
You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter to make sure.
Thanks for the info. I removed the bottom panel and the cover. I purchased a multimeter to test the fuse but the meter wouldn't zero out so I need to buy another one. However after removing the bottom panel I noticed that it "looked" like there were slight burn marks on the inside of the removed panel. It also looked like some of the wires had brown residue on them. It looked like it was singed but its hard to tell. The base of the dryer was filled with a carpet of lint! Could this have caused a fire or the burn marks? Tonight when I get home I will use a new meter to check the fuse and let you know what I find! Thanks again.
Yes, all that lint in there is likely the cause if that thermal fuse is out, possibly caused the marks on the wires, but feel the wires to make sure there are no burnt spots on them, they should feel smooth.
Where does the dryer went outside to? your roof? side of the house?
If the thermistor is fine, then check the door switch.
Push the button in on the door switch with one meter probe on COM and the other meter probe on NO and see if it reads.(Should have continuity(0-1 ohm) between white wire and blue wire when switch is pushed in.)
The blue wire is NO and the white wire is COM on the door switch. Make sure your dryer stays unplugged when testing.
Jake, I tested the thermal fuse, thermistor and door switch and they seem to check out. I am at a loss at what is wrong. Anything else I could check? I need to get this thing working. Hanging clothes to dry is a PITA!
