Thank you Carmen. We just replaced the heating element about 2 months ago. Turns out, that wasn't the problem. We had to get a new relay switch. So I have a spare heating element on hand. Also, the belt is on securely & is not free turning as described in the second link you sent me.

It can be confusing when something stops working for no apparent reason. Without a model number, I can only provide general information.

This sounds like it may be the thermal fuse. If you are going to diagnose and repair your dryer yourself you could begin by disconnecting and testing the thermal fuse.

Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the lower access panel.

The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing. There is a general video to help test the thermal fuse continuity here; Video .

If you need more assistance, please respond with the complete model number. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for adding the model number. The possible causes to keep this dryer from starting would be a tripped electrical breaker, a failed electrical outlet, a bad door switch and a blown thermal fuse. Since the display works, further tests and diagnostics are needed. You can use the images below to run diagnostic tests. An error fault code should display which will pinpoint the issue. If you need to access inside the dryer, be sure to disconnect the power to the dryer. Respond back with diagnostic information for further assistance.

The thermal fuse was blown. My fiance tested it & there was no power to it. We found the part down the street at & after he replaced it, it was working like new. We cancelled the repair call which saved us around 100 bucks. Thank you so much for the reponses & expert help!

Hi Barbara, I have the same model as Kimberly above. The dryer stopped working all of a sudden. I'm no expert, but decided to take a look. The unit powers on fine, except when you choose a setting (even air dry), there is a click as it turns on - there is a short hum - and i can see the blower attempt to turn (very slightly), and then a few seconds later the hum stops. I'm wondering if something has jammed in there? The fact that it attempts to turn but stops leads me to believe the motor is working? Or perhaps faulty, since it doesn't have all the required juice to get going? The drum does not rotate freely, and I can see that the belt is intact. It's impossible for me though to get at the motor. From behind it looks like the back is pretty much welded shut, and taking off the lower front panel just leaves me staring at the blower unit with no visible way of taking it off. Any thoughts?

Hi,

Thank you for your question, and I would like to answer the question this way.
For the check out on this dryer, you will need a console and a multimeter. The problem is going to be with the control board or the thermal fuse, motor and /or the door switch. If you check the vent and find it clogged I would say it should be the thermal fuse. If you would rather a Sears Home Services technician come out to troubleshoot and repair it for you follow the link.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this entry below.
Thank you for using Manage My Life.
