To confirm, you had it running when the power went out?

the dryer was mid cycle when the power went out
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 months ago.

So when it shut off it was hot and the blower stopped, cutting all air flow. That would indeed cause issues. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

Almost done, had some computer trouble. Thank you for your patience.

The high limit thermostat is open and will not allow the motor to start. It will need to be replaced. The attached pages show how it is accessed for replacement.

The link below is to the part you will need!
