My Kenmore 29 Dryer (Model 60622) will not work. I just stopped

Resolved Question:

My Kenmore 29" Dryer (Model 60622) will not work. I just stopped it to pull a load out and when I tried to start a second load it won't start. I checked the fuse box and that's not the issue. The dryer door pin/latch is intact and is pushed when door closes. There is power to the dryer because the dryer timer switch ticks when the door is shut. Thanks for any help.

your problem is the thermal fuse. Part 2986this is located on the blower housing, these are cheap and you can get one @ for around $13.00, thanks Bryan

can you open the door and find the full model #? look in these places,

First, here are some tips to help with your model number:

  1. Don't enter a dash if it's not required.
  2. Don't enter any blank spaces.
  3. Be sure a zero is not the letter O.
  4. Be sure a lower case L is not a 1.
  5. Kenmore models always have a 3 digit prefix such as 110 or 665, then a period, then more numbers.

Next, look for an aluminum tag--or a silver or white adhesive label. The model number may be printed or stamped onto the tag and it may be written in two different type sizes or styles.

You might find the tag in one of these places:

Dryer only, gas or electric

  • Inside the door, on the cabinet frame
  • On the back of the unit, near the top
  • On the side of the unit, near the front

Washer-dryer combination unit

  • Inside the dryer door, on the door frame
  • On top of the dryer
  • On the side of the washer, near the bottom, front
  • Under the washer lid
