I have an electric dryer that just stopped working today.

I have an electric...

I have an electric dryer that just stopped working today. Its 4 years old and has a 10 year warranty that was purchased at home depot in Racine. When I press the power butto, it's fine but when I when I press the start button, it 'hums' a bit then stops and the a red light comes up next to sensing, then stops.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of the appliance? And has it done this before?

BRAVOS XL...MEDB835DW1...No. This is the first issue I've had.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Not unless its something very simple.....I assume with a 10 year warranty, whatever needs to be done should be covered. This was not a cheap dryer and it should be good for more than 4 years.,

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

We only do 2-3 loads of laundry a week and do hang dry a lot so there should not be much wear & tear on this machine at all.

Most likely this will be a "simple" repair but I think it is likely a blown thermal fuse. On your dryer to get the the fuse the entire front needs to be removed. It is not difficult but with extended warranty you would not want to go that far. If it turns out to be the fuse, make sure the service tech check to see if your house venting is not clogged or the fuse will blow again. Let me know if you have any questions about this.

ok,,

There are other more serious possibilities but I this it will be a fuse and they should have it on the truck.
