Question and Answers

Q:

I need to know where the fuses are in my dryer.

A:

Hi Marilyn, Usually the manual is referring to you dryer circuit fuses or breaker located in your home electrical box. The circuit is a 240 volt breaker or a double pull out fuse block. Since the drum is turning there may be other problems such as limit switches or timer contacts, You may also have a bad heating element if unit is an electric model. Good Luck,,be safe..

Thank you. Your answer was very helpful. All of my circuit breakers are fine. Maybe it's just time for a new dryer.

The fuses that the owner’s manual is referring to are actually the circuit breakers in your house. An electric dryer will run but not heat if one of the double 30 amp breakers has tripped at your circuit breaker box. The only way to confirm the correct voltage is by using a volt meter. You should read 220volts at the wall plug. On this model I suspect a restricted exhaust vent caused the hi-limit safety thermostat to fail. This could also be caused by a shorted to ground heating element. Use a putty knife to push & release the spring clips #7, lift the top up to access the hi-limit part number 3204267 & heating element 131553900 www.searspartsdirect.com The high limit should read 0 resistance (closed continuity). The heating element should read approx 10 ohms resistance.
