Question and Answers

Q:

dryer fuses

A:

I can understand your wondering how to remove that back panel and it's not easy unless you know how. It's very likely by when we speak of "fuses" we might be referring to the "house fuses" we would find in our breaker box in the garage or outside of the house. Your dryer does have a thermal fuse & thermal cutout, that when the dryer gets too hot, will shut the unit down for safety concerns. I did locate a set of instructions for removing the panel to your dryer. Click on the link below to view the page. Keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction. I hope this link will help guide you to the fuses you're interested in and have a nice day.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. On this model you do not have fuses, but two thermostats that control the heating. The Safely Thermostat (#33 in first image below) is located on the outside of the back of the drum. This is where the coils are for the unit. The Control Thermostat (#15 in second image below) is located on the outside of the blower housing. In order to access the safety thermostat you will need to remove the top of the dryer. This is the only way. You can access the control thermostat by removing the back of the unit. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

There is no link to refer to. I have removed every visible screw, etc. from the rear of the dryer, and cannot begin to see how to get it off. The back does not look like any of the rear panels I have seen in videos, etc.

I'm sorry about the marks on the clothes. This can be a difficult problem to pin down since you can't get a good look at the flame without removing the front panel and then the air flow is changed. I'm entirely convinced that what you see is burn marks. I'm more suspicious of the clothes being marked because of a problem with the drum seal. Some things to consider is if the problem is a recent one. If the dryer has been in the same spot for awhile ant the problem just started then something has happened. Check the vent hose is not partially kinked. If the flame is bad the cause is usually a restricted vent. The drum seal can go bad and allow the clothes to get pinched between the drum and panel. The image below shows how to raise the top. You can check the seals. You can even try removing the vent hose and see if the problem continues. I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance. 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 .
