Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer is not heating to dry your clothes. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information that will assist you in checking the thermostat and the heating element.  Click here to view the information. Click here to view where the fuse is located as well as the heating element.  Let me know if this helps.

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

Q:

A:

Suddenly having a dryer that does not work at all can be upsetting. While you wait for the expert to answer, you can check a troubleshooting video I found if you like. I also added the owner's manual. I see it has troubleshooting for this issue on page 23. I attached the links below. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question and model number. Based on your symptom and details the most likely failure is the thermal fuse.

The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing and is shown as key#7 in the image I added below.

To access the thermal fuse will require pulling the dryer out from the wall and disconnecting the power cord.

Remove the rear panel by removing the screws (key#3) from around the outer edge of the rear panel (key#41).

The thermal fuse (key#7) can be disconnected and tested for continuity using an ohm meter. If you do not have an ohm meter, you could disconnect the two wires from the thermal fuse and install a short insulated jumper wire in each ends of the spades which were connected to the thermal fuse. Make sure the metal ends of the terminals and wires do not touch metal and then plug the dryer in and see if it will start. If the dryer starts, DO NOT leave the jumper wire installed and try to catch up on laundry. Replace the thermal fuse before using the dryer. The thermal fuse is part #3392519 and is available at Sears Parts Direct .

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 .

A:

It could be a bad PUSH TO START button or it could be a timer or door switch failure. I added the wiring diagram in the image below. I traced out the start circuit in RED and BLACK. I also circled all the contacts involved in the start circuit. Each one of these contact must be closed in order to complete the circuit to the motor.

Shalabh: I added the basic instructions on how to remove the switch in the image below. It will show a temperature switch but the procedure is the same. There will be a locking tab to pull up and then rotate the push to start switch assembly and remove.
