We have a Kenmore gas clothes dryer model# XXXXX which goes on, but doesn't heat. The manual says it could be a fuse or circuit breaker, but I don't know where these are located. Thanks.

does this unit heat at all or is it completely cold all the time?

It is completely cold
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 7 years ago.
ok so it does sound like a fuse may be bad. it's located on the back of your dryer. If you pull the unit out and remove the back panel, look down near the exhaust vent. There is a tiny white plastic device with 2 wires. This is your thermal fuse you'll want to replace. Here is a link to where you can order a new fuse if you'd like.

We will get this fuse and see if that's what it is. If it is not, do we talk with YOU again or someone else?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 7 years ago.
me, but you can test it by taping the 2 wires that go to the fuse together. Just disconnect the 2 wires to the fuse, tape them together and test to see if it start to heat up.
