My dryer has no power light indicator on. I unplugged the power cord and left it out for couple hours and still has no power. Checked out the outlet is working. Please advice what caused this problem. Thanks.
For model number GGW9868KL1
Hello Eric, that is a great question. The most common fix is the thermal fuse. I would start there, then check the thermostats. Hope this helps!

The indicator lights on dryer turn on when the power button is pressed but the dryer does not start. When you press start the light for sensing comes on but the dryer will not start.
For model number WED8500BWO
Hi Christopher, Thank you for your inquiry. There are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the disposable thermal fuse, the internal bias thermostat, the door catch, the belt, the pulley, the rollers, the high limit thermostat, the thermal use and the electrode sensor. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

It will not start and the powerbutton as well as the start button flashes! Can you steer me in the right direction? Thank you!
For model number Wed8600ywo
Hi Ron, the only way to tell is to test individual components with a multimeter. My best guess is that there is a problem with the control board or as you have identified the fuses. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!

No glow or heat. Took apart and removed part in heating chamber that looks to be 3" long, made up of ceramic or plastic at base,ceramic straw-sized piece covered with a metal spring. It just sat in 'v'shaped holder and could be removed easily. Trying to fix the dryer. What part or part replacement do i need? Thanks
For model number 11077995800
Hi Sam, Thank you for your question. There are a few parts that you will want to check for no heat or not enough heat. You should check your radiant flame sensor, your thermostats, your thermal fuses, your igniter, and your m series coils. You can test all of those parts with a multi meter to see which one is broken. Good luck with your repair.

Hello, my dryer will not start. Does this model have a thermal fuse that can be easily accessed in the back of the dryer? Or does it only have a disposable thermal fuse that you have to take the whole dryer apart to get to? I cannot find a thermal fuse for this model on your website.
For model number GEQ8811LL0
Hi Erin, Thank you for your question. The dryer does have a disposable thermal fuse and there is a video listed with the part on our website, that you may reference on how to access the part. If the dryer is not starting, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the door switch, the door catch, the push-to-start switch, the drive belt, the idler pulley, the timer and the thermal cut-off. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Where is the thermal fuse on this unit? The dryer is not heating and I am not getting trouble codes. Want to test the fuse with my multi-meter but I cannot locate it.
For model number WED7300XW0
Hi Ron, Thank you for the question. The fuse is located on the Blower Housing. Please see the link to the video below. Hope this helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=294&v=CMzEVLu1-u0

My dryer gets hot and the drum turns but the blower barely turns and the clothes are wet but hot?
For model number 110.68942892
Hi Jeffrey, Thank you for the question. I suggest removing the blower wheel and checking for damage on the wheel and where the wheel connects to the motor shaft. Sounds like the wheel might be stripped. Hope this helps!

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer. When I press the start button sometimes I heard a humming sound and the dryer will not spin. If I wait a while and press start it will spin but if I stop and or open the dryer door it will hum and not spin making me repeat this cycle. My guess is the motor can't handle the load and is going bad or something is causing too much of a load for the motor.
For model number cgm2751jq0
Hi Ethan, Thank you for the question. If the motor will kick on and tumble as normal after waiting for a bit then it should be fine. Normally if the motor was not operating it would not tumble at all. I suggest testing the Door Switch,PartSelect Number PS334284.This part recognizes whether the door is open or closed and tells the motor when to start. Hope this helps!

Dryer wouldn't turn on
Removed the back of the dryer taking off the screws. Found the disposable thermal fuse. Unplugged the 2 blue wires connected to it. Removed the screws holding the part in. Replaced the old part. Reattached the blue wires. Put the back on the dryer. And voila! That simple!
I'm a 39 year old woman with absolutely no patience for tedious jobs, but this was so easy I felt good about doing it. And felt even better for saving lots of money by doing the repair myself.

dryer wouldnt heat
All parts were correct is what I should say to begin. Replacing the parts was a bit difficult, but I got the job done. My Kenmore dryer has been serving our needs faithfully for 14 plus years, and hopefully with these new parts, it will last a bit longer, thanks to your service parts. Much appreciated, and keep up the good work!

The dryer stopped working and would not start.
After unplugging the dryer, I removed the bottom panel in front. Remove the the filter inside the dryer and remove the filter housing below. There you can see the thermal fuse on the air duct, its white with two blue wires. You can check it with a ohmmeter after removing the wires. If its open its bad. Its held in place with two sheet metal screws. After replacing the thermal fuse the dryer worked fine. However I would suggest cleaning the air duct and the outside discharge opening. Hope this helps.

Thermal fuse was bad.
Did an Ohm test on the old Thermal Fuse found it to be bad. Replaced it with a new and the dryer is back to working great. Your suggestions saved approximatley $150.

Thanks for the help.

The dryer burner wouldn't fire
Checked online for symptoms.
Pulled panel from front of unit (no tools required)
Vacuumed all lint from unit to see if that was a problem.
Removed the exhaust port which comes off with 3 hex head screws.

Based on the symptoms, I pulled the wires off the thermal fuse and did a continuity check on it. There was no continuity, so I knew I needed that part. Since a common reason for that to fail is the cycling thermostat allows the dryer to get too hot, I replaced that thermostat as well, just to be safe.

Due to closeness to the drum, I had to use a socket to remove the hex head screws on the two electronic parts.

Total time was about 40 mins. to diagnose and 20 mins. to replace the parts and verify correct operation.

Dryer would not turn on
We took the screws off of the back, took out the thermal fuse and replaced it with the new one.
We watched a video of how to do it which made it so easy.
Works great!

Dryer would tumble but not heat.
Used an inexpensive multi-meter to detect that there was no continuity through thermal cut-off (high end) or disposable thermal fuse. I identified these parts by reading your online schematic of the dryer. I noted that the flexible ducting had been crushed on the dryer which lead to the feasibility that the thermal cut offs, especially the thermal fuse could have burnt out. Ordered the parts on Monday, drying clothes again on Wednesday.

Dryer would not start.
With the help of YouTube, I was able to watch videos of how to disassemble and reassemble the dryer. I watched a video showing where the Thermal fuse and Thermostat was located as well as how to test them with a meter. I watched another video showing how to replace the drum belt, showing step by step instructions. Without YouTube it would have been a whole different story!
