Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello from JA My name is Woody. I will be glad to assist you today. I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years, and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.
Can I please have the Full model number of the unit to better assist you ? When you program the dryer and press Start does the time display count down? it will take 1 minute for it to change of course.
And if you open the dryer door does the interior light go on?
ok so the countdown tells me the door switch start circuit is good. if you unplug the unit and remove the lower front panel (two clips on top of the panel near the corners)
After the panel has been opened and layed down on the blower housing is a thermal fuse .
the fuse is on the back side of the blower housing near the top ,the wires will be hard to see it has two light blue wires on it .remove those two wires and with a paper clip join those two wires together and make sure they will not touch bare metal ,plug the unit back in and program any cycle and press Start to see if it does then start?
Let me know what happens
Ok I waited over an hour for you to come back I will be on tomorrow around 9 am.EST
the best way to remove any of the wires with in the dryer from their terminals is to grab a hold of them and pull them off .
They have no locking clip they are all held on by friction . if you need to take a pair of needle nosed pliers and pull the terminal off the thermal fuse.
And now that you have told me of this erratic operation ,the issue would not be the thermal fuse .
If the thermal fuse is faulty the dryer will not start back up again until the thermal fuse is replaced.
Make sure that the motor area is clear of lint ,lint can cause the motor to over heat and once it goes off on overload it will need to cool back down before it will restart.
Or you may have a loose connection with in the dryer start circuit also.
Do you still need assistance on your question?
