Dryers share most of the same type malfunctions. We all hope the fix is simple. I found two links on the Manage My Life website that should help. While you are waiting for an expert to reply I have attached the links below.

Based on your symptoms, you could have a blown thermal fuse or a broken drive belt. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below. With that service panel removed, you can check to see if the drive belt is broken. You may need to remove the lint duct assembly as shown in the second image to access components better. If the drive belt is intact, I recommend that you check the thermal fuse on the blower housing. It will have blue wires attached to it. The third image shows the location of this fuse. The 4th image shows the wiring diagram for the dryer with the drive motor circuit traced in blue. You can test the thermal fuse using the procedure shown in this Repair Clinic.com video: Thermal Fuse Testing . If that fuse is bad, it will need to be replaced. You can order a new thermal fuse (part 3392519) from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you have the dryer unplugged when accessing internal components.

Check the venting as shown in the above video if the thermal fuse was blown.

If the drive belt was broken, you can use the procedure shown in the 5th image to open the cabinet and replace that component (with the dryer unplugged ). The 6th image shows how to release the console on your particular dryer. You can then follow the procedure shown in the 5th image to open the cabinet and replaced the drive belt.

These tips may help you resolve this dryer problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
