Dryer will not start. Will not go into diagnostic test. It will not beep. Power is to the start switch
Checked plug and cord power to unit. This is a stackable unit. Door switch checked out

Washer control will beep

Thanks for replies in advance

Hi,

Sounds like your thermal limiter went out, that will cause your dryer to act dead.

Unplug the dryer first!

Ohm your thermal limiter with a multimeter for continuity , if no continuity, then its bad.

Watch this video:

[video=youtube;3nicyh6EUHc]

Here's the thermal fuse for your model you can order, if yours ohm tests bad:
Thermal Fuse 134120900


Then on your model you remove the very top panel of your dryer, and you should see it mounted on the very back panel on the right side as seen in the photo below, on some models they can be on the left side.:)

Here's a photo of it(Its the small one that mounts on the inside back of the cabinet):



The main reason the thermal limiter blows is air flow restrictions in your exhaust hose that goes to the outside of your home, lint build-up over the years effects the air flow, also go outside and check your dryer vent, that can clog up too.

All ready ordered one from your co

It's a real pain to get at it. Have to remove a bunch of panels
Can I move it closer to the front of the machine? In case
it blows again?


Thank you for your quick reply

Unfortunately not.:)

I thought you ohm tested the old thermal limiter(thermal fuse) before you ordered the new one?

The only part left that would cause this problem is the DRYER main control board.

This is the DRYER main control board for your model you can order:
Control Board 5304500454
