This is Whirlpool commercial gas dryer with coin box installed. It suddently stopped working. The outlet on wall has power, and the dryer end of the power cord did get power on dryer. After we put coin in, the light won't come on at all. Just seems the dryer did not get any electrical power at all. After reading all of the online answers, we would like to check thermal fuse as our first step. But we can not take the back pannel out at all. After unscrew all and the back panel still stick there and does not seems lose at all. The Cabinet diagram related with this part seems the back panel is joined with the two side panels and the bottom too. Is that true? It seems I have to take all parts out to see the fuse!? what is the easy way we can find this fuse. Please Please help help with the detail how I can open the back to see the fuse !
ANSWER Hi Jean. Use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. So do you have correct 240 vac to the terminal block at the back of the dryer and 120 vac from the white middle (neutral) terminal screw to both outer screw terminals L-1 Black wire and L-2 Red wires each? You need both the 120 and 240 as well. Remove the lower front kick panel and access the thermal fuse part # 3390719. Thank You.
