hello, welcome to just answer. my name is XXXXX XXXXX and i will be happy to assist you with your problem. this is most likely a bad thermal fuse. this is found on the right side if the heating element about half way down. remove the two wires from the fuse and slide them together. Make sure that they are not touching anything but each other and start the dryer.
Thanks for the quick reply Shaun. However, that didn't get it done. What next?
you removed the 2 white wires from the fuse and connected them together?
please lket me know when you can be online so i can assist you
The fuse I could access was on top of the heating element and it had red wires running to it, and I did connect them together. I didn't grab them to check the current, but my voltage indicator lit up near the connection. I can be online for an extended period around 9:30
that is not the fuse
that is the high limit thermostat.
you must unplug the unit and remove the two wires from the thermal fuse. it is located on the right side of the element
You can then slide them onto each other. then plug the unit in and start the dryer,
this is a common problem when the dryer over heats
you will purchase this as a kit that will come with the fuse and the thermostat.
it can be found at www.appliancepartspros.com at a discounted price.
ok so so I found the ones you were referring to and you were right the thing started right up.
you just need to replace the kit
thanks a ton I will be doing that.
