now this is going to require you taking off the back and we will need to do some inspecting. Was there a load going when this happened?

Stuck at botto,

ok you may have to see if there are any screws securing it underneath around the trim edge. If there is not try sliding the back to the side to see if its just stuck in the lip.

its inside the metal housing where the black wire is fried on the outside
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I sent photo

i see it ok so it looks like lint built up and caused a fire inside of there. There will be no telling how much damage was done until its all taken apart and cleaning completely.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

looks at least if nothing else the heating element and the high limit thermostat are shot and will need replaced. This could have also caused damage to control board. This can turn very expensive if you plan on repairing.
