A:

For a no heat problem on a running gas dryer the place to start is the thermal fuse on the blower housing.

From there the problem might be the hi-limit thermostat or the flame sensor.

Remember to unplug the dryer before accessing any part.

The thermal fuse can be access with the rear panel removed. See the images below for a good idea of how to access the thermal fuse.

The fuse can be checked two ways. The proper way is to use a meter to check across the fuse for an open circuit. Checking continuity is what this is called.

Another method is to simply remove the two wires on the fuse, while the dryer is unplugged, and join them together. Put a little electrical tape around and be sure it doesn't touch anything.

With the thermal fuse bypassed the dryer may heat.

The 3392519 thermal fuse, or any part, can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

Try this if you what to try to do-it-yourself. Fixing the thermal fuse or thermostat might cost you $15 dollars and an hour of labor but compare that to the approximate $150 dollars you might spend on a technician.

You can reply with additional questions for further assistance.
