Stephen B.: Great video. where do I find the thermal fuse and thermostat?
Alex McGrath: Need to zoom in
atay Hendrix: how much would a repair man charge for that fix..im sure hundreds
Trini GamerDude: i have a whirlpool similar to this. It dropped kinda hard during a recent move and wont start. no house light, no nothing. I know its not a fuse. just cant put my finger on what could have gone wrong.
Robert Kennedy: When I push the start button it runs, until I let go of the button. Any tips are helpful.
Dave Cyphert: Thanks for the video!...Question?...I have an Estate brand (Whirlpool) and won't start with the push of the ON/OFF button.......I tested the thermal fuse and got a reading on my multi-meter. Is it safe to say then it's the push ON/OFF switch that is bad? Thanks for your time Canyonman1963
Richard Engelhardt: I changed the thermal fuse and the dryer still doesn't turn on, all I hear is a click when I press the power button. What should be the next thing I check or replace in the process of getting to the real problem?
T M: I have a Kenmore dryer (model 417.88056700) from 2009 that just went out after a power outage/lightening strike to the outside transformer on the pole. The only item that operates on the dryer is the inside light. No lights on the control panel that are operational. The motor tests as 2.1 for the main (4&5) and 3.8 for start (4&6). The thermistor (#134587700) seems to be defective when checking ohms; though I'm not sure if I'm suppose to check with a ohm reading or another type of reading for this item; and if this would cause the control panel/dryer not to work. The thermal fuse and hi-level thermostat checks out ok. My guess is the control panel needs replacing. Your insight would be appreciated.
Derrick Smikle: I am concerned that if I cut the bad part back and than splice another on to it will it still burn up
Derrick Smikle: if the issue is ur wires coming from the panel that your plug ties into is it safe to reconnect that black wire to the connector or no
Erick Matos: I changed out my Lo operating thermostat thats right under the thermal fuse & my dryer worked but after drying one load of clothes, I went to put another load in & the dryer wouldn't start...waited a couple hours then decided to try and start the dryer again & the dryer started with no problem???
Erick Matos: checked my thermal fuse it was good...but I noticed one of the terminals on the operating thermostat looked like it may have overheated (blown)...so if I change the thermostat do I still have to change the thermal fuse even though the thermal fuse was good?
moonrunrs: Do you have to put the back cover on and the plate on for it to work again? I replaced the thermal fuse but it still won't start. Thanks for your videos.
Chris Puyau: Once I took off the back, I could not FIND the thermal fuse.....
Conserned1: If my dryer on switch goes out will that make the light inside the dryer not come on ?
Karoline Seymour: I learn a lot on your tube. I even fixed my washer..thank you for this video..
lacey squarsich: thank you I just pulled it out an the plug and plug in has a melted spot on one of the prongs an the hole it goes in I think that's my problem hope it ant more then that
lacey squarsich: my dryer stated to stop by no power during drying an then stopped completely won't come on at all. do you think this can still be the fuse
TannerBoyle1967: Thanks for the info as it did help. I do have a couple of problems though. I don't have an ohm meter so I connected the two blue wires together and the dryer started perfectly. I then ordered a new thermal fuse and thermostat and proceeded to clean out my hose and vent which were extremely dirty. When I was finished cleaning, I wanted to check how the air flow was so I once again connected the two blue wires. Big mistake as I saw a blue spark and immediately turned the timer knob to the off position but for some reason it just kept running and didn't shut off. I unplugged it, which is what I should have done in the first place. I am a little worried that it somehow shorted out the timer because I noticed that one of those blue wires goes to the timer. Not sure where the other blue wire goes to. The metal ends of the two wires are burned and I wont be able to connect the new thermal fuse. Can I get two new wires and just reconnect them and will I most likely need a new timer? Thanks for any info.
itsk3hiphop: What thermostat did you use in this replacement?
