I will give it a try - what is the part number? I gave you the wrong model number it is MED9800TQ0(zero) do you have a diagram of this part?
Hey Mike - thank you for the info - You said in the first reply - "Take the panel off under the door by removing the 3 screws along the botXXXXX XXXXXp, once off you will see the blower housing, look behind the blower housing with a flashlight you should see the thermal fuse."
HOWEVER, the schematic shows the fuse behind the dryer vent/housing. I have a big what I call kickplate under the dryer door - not sure how to remove it - there are 3 screws in the dryer vent/housing. WHich one will gain me access to this fuse?
I need to reply but keep getting access denied!!!
YES but it won't let me type more than one sentence!

Is it some sort of relay that could be causing the problem? I have not heard the click before and now I do
Dryer has never overheated, never been too hot and not ever not started
it is kept SUPER CLEAN inside and out -all vents etc - over cleaned if anything
If your crystal ball is working, please advise
QUESTION: What is the beep I am hearing when I push start and off button? It is just one beep just a split second after the beep you normally hear. It is both buttons - seems to be coming from the rear of the dryer - up high middle to left side if you are facing the dryer.
NOT BEEP - I hear the beep but there is a CLICK a split second AFTER the beep from both switches - FUSE checks OK
AWESOME! YOU ROCK!!
OK - Just for giggles ans as I already bought the thermal fuse - I replaced it and same problem - a beep and CLICK when you press the start button and when you press the off button - put dryer in diagnostic mode - no codes came up - WHAT do I do now??? I really don't want to spend hours and $$$ on this like I did with my trash compactor - they guy had me replace every switch on it I think to the tune of $100 and none fixed the problem.
What - in your expert opinion could be causing this - as it was not the fuse?
Like I said - this dryer is only 5 or so years old - it gets used daily but is kept VERY clean lint wise etc and has never been too hot or never given me a problem.
KELLY!!! You helped me with my sisters freezer, freezer on the bottom fridge and my trash compactor recently - I am SO GLAD it is you!!
OK - Did you read the problem? In a nutshell - this is a less than 10 yr old dryer - never a problem - never overheated - I keep it CLEAN - no lint in lint trap, or hose to outside etc - so no overheating. I opened the door to check a load of clothes about 1/2 way through - Closed door back and it beeped once like it should and I heard one click - It did not start - tried pushing the off button - beep as usual and one click from it - Lights come on - lights on when door open but won't run - just the one beep and one click. I replaced the thermal fuse - It was good - I checked old and new just to make sure - both good.
PS - how do I remove the top to get to control board?
Ok top is off but I don't see a control board - is it under the long metal strip on the left hand side and how do I get to it?
The front side looks brand new - I see no burn marks or bad solder places - How do I get it off the metal strip - or do I need to check the back of the board? Could this be a bad door switch??
YOU ARE A GENIUS!!!! Turned board over and the area circled was not burned but there are several metal nubs all over the back - the one just below and to the right of the A in the writing at top of board P27165A - what is it?? YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
