The thermal fuse shuts off power to the dryer if the dryer overheats. If the thermal fuse has blown, the dryer will not start.

Hi
I replaced the thermal fuse and dryer still does not turn on, no power
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 year ago.

Have you checked that the belt is not broken or damaged?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The belt is good and the drum turns fine.
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 year ago.

Then this would mean the main control board is faulty and would need to be replaced.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is no power, I press power button and nothing, does not turn on
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 year ago.

That would be the main control board. It is what gives power to the unit.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay, so main control board is that on the front of the dryer where all the controls are? Do you have a part # ?
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 year ago.

Its on the side of the inside of the unit. Part #DC92-00123A
