Hello,
Maybe someone can help. Dryer just wouldn't turn on nor does the light come on. Been having no issues just out of the blue. Also I checked and there is power to the dryer. I've been hearing about thermal switches going bad but would that effect the light?

Hi,

A copy:

Q - My dryer is dead, what could do that ?

A- Common problems...blown house fuse/tripped breaker ( electric dryers need 2 )...loose white/neutral wire...broken belt ( on some models only )...door switch/door switch bracket...*thermal fuse open ( venting needs attention )...broken or burnt wire...timer...motor...burnt power cord/plug...start switch ( especially the ones with a built in relay switch )

* If you find a blown thermal fuse, always clean, change, adjust the venting system and vent hood first.

I've been hearing about thermal switches
Your dryer has one on the fan blower housing...
