Q:

need help with a dryer

A:

Dryers are appliances we count on daily so when something happens all we can think about is money out the window. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I suggest you set service with a Sears technician. I have attached the link below. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The door switch can be tested with an Ohm meter. You can access and disconnect the door switch harness place the two Ohm meter leads across the White and Blue wire while the door is shut. It the Ohm meter does not measure continuity, the door switch is faulty.

To access the door switch:

#Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

  1. Pull the lint filter out.
  2. Remove the two screws which were hidden under the lint filter.
  3. Insert a putty knife between the front of the top and the top of the front panel about 4-6 inches inwards from both corners.
  4. Push inwards on the putty knife and while holding inward pressure, lift that corner of the top up a little and repeat procedure for the other side.
  5. Hinge the top up and let it lean against the wall.
  6. You should see a wire harness connector to disconnect leading to the door switch.
  7. Place the Ohm meter leads across the White and Blue wire connected to the door switch. The Ohm meter should measure continuity when the door is shut. If it does not, the door switch is faulty.

If the door switch measure continuity, then it may have blown thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is located behind the dryer. You will need to remove the panel from behind the dryer. The thermal fuse is located on the blower wheel housing and it will have two (2) blue wires connected to it. Disconnect the two blue wires and test the thermal fuse for continuity with the Ohm meter. If it does not measure continuity, replace the thermal fuse and your dryer will likely start and run again. Check the vent system for any kinks or restrictions. A restricted vent can cause the thermal fuse to fail.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
