My dryer will not start. The timer seems to have power. It is clicking and the door switch was jumped and is ok. Where do I go from here?
Answer Hello Jerry,
The issue is most likely the thermal fuse LA-1053. If the thermal fuse blows, it is blown by high temperature. This is usually caused by a crimped, clogged, or excessively long exhaust duct. This means you need to check the exhaust duct because if you replace the required part and don't correct the duct, the problem will recur very quickly. Also, if the thermal fuse is bad, this is an indication that the thermostat didn't open properly. This is why the part comes in a kit with the thermostat. The two parts MUST BOTH be changed to avoid a repeat failure.
Thermo fuse blew, could flame detector work intermittently? It tested ok.
Answer Hello Joel. It sounds like the flame sensor is good. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly. Hope this helps.
