Customer Question

My dryer has stopped is a washer/dryer combination. There is no gas coming through the gas pipe. The serial # ***** #16921059ZB and the model # ***** ***** There is no electrical problem...the dryer container moves appropriately, I have taken off the panel to observe the workings of the dryer and checked for ignition and also to see if any gas is flowing. The answer to both of those is NO. What are the possible problems? thermal fuse? etc.etc.etc.

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. ANSWER: More than likely the thermal fuse is out on the unit, check part #30 at this link for continuity or bypass it by interlocking the two wires together to it and then try it. If it heats replace it.
