  Thermal fuse is in motor circuit, not the heat circuit. If motor runs, thermal fuse is good. First try resetting the AC panel breaker for the dryer, sometimes one half of the breaker can trip internally without tripping the whole thing. If that doesn't work, you need to check for 240vac at the power cord terminal block. If good, check continuity of the thermal cutoff and hi limit thermostat. Heater coil should read between 7 to 12 ohms. If all checks out, could be a bad heat relay on the control board or a faulty motor switch. More likely the control board. You can unplug the two wires from the relay, make a good jumper to jump the two wires together and then see if you get heat. Jumper must be made with proper terminals as it's going to carry a lot of current for the heater. Unplug dryer before doing the jumper as one of the wires is live even with dryer off.

ohm out the thermal fuse see if you have continuity. If yes, it's good. Then check the high limit on the heater. If you have continuity it's good if not then it's bad (then check your venting) 90% if the time if the highlimit is tripped the venting is almost or completely blocked.

  Eliminate the two red wires and the black wire (not the one going into the motor). Connect hot to the blue wire and neutral to the white wire. This is single speed motor.

Dryer Repair / Repurposing a Whirlpool drive motor, PN 695075
« Last post by IDamanBCR on February 25, 2015, 01:44:33 PM »
I want to use the drive motor from an old Whirlpool dryer as just a blower motor.  It is the older motor with blue, yellow and black wires going into the windings. There are two red, one black, one blue and one white wire coming into the start switch.




How would I connect the wiring to this motor so it will operate with a simple 2 wire 120v plug? Also, is it possible to use this motor with a speed control (HI/Med/Low)?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Dryer runs, but does not heat. I just replaced the thermal fuse, so that is probably still good. Physical inspection of the heating element shows no breaks in the heating coil. I will grab the multimeter after work and test the element just to make sure it is not bad. What else should I test? The little parts on the element and in the small part to the left of that next to the thermal fuse? Time to pull out the spec sheet after work.  Argh, no working dryers makes this mom of 10, 8 still at home, grumpy!  >:( >:( >:(

Also without testing the touch tone board with a meter,I use the word  Probably bad control panel with a ? mark.That being said i think i would go with the touch tone board over the control board.

Your compressor is bad.Replacing the relay was the final test.If you called someone for service that would of cost you more for a service call than you paid for the relay.Look at it that way.That sound is the overload on the relay opening up and shutting power off to the compressor,and this hum and click will happen again after overload on relay closes again.
