Appliance-Service :

Hello

Appliance-Service :

Thank you for using Just Answer

Appliance-Service :

When you say it stopped working do you mean spinning, heating or both ?

Customer :

yes dead , light does not go on , on panel

Appliance-Service :

ok you may want to check the thermal fuse first, if not then it could be the main control. Also rare but make sure the breaker has not tripped.

Customer :

to check fuse one needs to take apart whole machine to get to it, im looking for an eiaser way

Appliance-Service :

you can take the back off

Customer :

fuse is in front of unit , so drum needs to come out which means taking whole machine apart to get to fuse . unless you have abetter idea?

Customer :

ideas?

Appliance-Service :

unfortunately that is what it takes to get to it

Appliance-Service :

the fuse can be tested with an OHM meter for continuity

Customer :

doesnt help me much

Appliance-Service :

I will opt out for other techs to assist you, good luck to you

Customer :

so any ideas? would replacing main panel help?

Expert:  AUSSIE- Repair Tech. replied 5 years ago.
Replacing the main panel will only help if the thermal fuse is in fact okay*

if you replace the main controller, and the thermal fuse is blown, it still wont work and you would have just wasted a lot of money and time for nothing...

As stated by the expert above, you'll need to get to the thermal fuse and check it with a multimeter, or simply replace it with a known working one.

if the dryer powers up, bingo, if not, then its time for a controller probably* as there isnt really much else inside the cabinet that can contribute to this problem*
