i have a 3R AWZ480EMQO tumble dryer that has stopped working. it was stopped half way through a cycle, and when we tried to restart it it just doesnt work. there is power going to it, and also power inside the machine. the door switch works properly, but the machine just will not start

Robert : Hello


Robert : This unit has a panel under the door that can be removed. Make sure you unplug the unit before removing it. To take it off you will need to remove the screws on its botXXXXX XXXXXp.

i have already done that

Robert : The blower housing is on the left hand side. Look on the housing for an oblong white fuse.
Robert : It will have two wires going to it.

not at home at the moment, but did not see this when i looked

Robert : It will be on the top of the blower housing right before the metal tube that goes out of the back connects to it.

ok i will look when i get home later and will contact you then, thanks

Robert : Remove those wires and test the fuse for continuity OR tie the wires together, tape the off so they don't touch metal and test the dryer.

thanks for the advise will let you know how it goes

Robert : If the dryer works, replace the fuse with part number(NNN) NNN-NNNNand make sure the vent is clean all the way out to the exhaust and the hose is not crushed.
Robert : This happens on these units when they overheating.

where is best place to get the fuse from

Robert : Usually all local appliance parts retailers have plenty on hand. If not, you can order it online. Just put the part number in the search box and thousands of places will pop up.

excellent thanks for that

Robert : Not a problem.
