dryer will not turn on
« on: August 07, 2012, 09:37:49 AM »
I went to dry a batch of clothes. My dryer will not turn on. the light is on and it made the sound when I pushed the start button. We have checked the start switch and the door switch. Both are good. What else could it be? Please help!!!

On the blower housing is a skinny white component with 2 small wires.  It is mounted with one screw. This is the fuse. If too much junk builds up inside the blower housing the heat melts this fuse. Just replacing the fuse without addressing the issue will only cause the fuse to melt again. Remove the filter housing and clean it.

Good advice JW. This fuse is in the nuetral circuit and tha dryer will not run if it is open(bad). Replace and check your air flow outside. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-dryer-thermal-fuse-item-number-ap3132867.aspx
