Connor Mullins: If my Kenmore 600 series doesn't start - no noise whatsoever -I am watching
your video, but how do I know if its the thermal switch or starter switch??
René Bouillon: Thank you,
I watched your video this morning, went to get the parts, and now my dryer
is working fine.
ThrashNeon: I'm struggling with my 1999 Whirlpool/Kenmore dryer. It wouldn't start, so
I suspected the thermal fuse thanks to this video. I briefly jumped the
fuse to confirm that the motor, heating element, fan, etc all work.... but
the timer did NOT seem to "countdown" during my test. Unfortunately, I
ordered the thermal *cut-off* fuse kit - which is obviously not the correct
part (this kit is for the heating element thermostat). I've since ordered
the correct thermal fuse, and now I see that I should also replace the
operating thermostat. My question is this: If I replace the thermal fuse
and operating thermostat, and this is actually a timer issue (if the timer
doesn't run, presumably this could cause overheating/blown fuse), won't the
fuse/thermostat just pop again? If so, I'll have to replace the timer AND
replace the fuse/thermostat AGAIN? Everything is clean and no obstructions
anywhere. Thanks for any advice.
John Adams: I did an override on this part because it was bad by using a small wire to
make a connection and it blew that wire. something is blowing this fuse.
what can I look for next that's blowing this fuse. Thanks
John Adams: This guy is awesome. He took the time to answer my questions about my dryer
and he did it in a matter of a few hours.I asked kinda late on a sunday
night and I got an answer by monday morning sometime. He is very
knowledgeable and he got back with me quickly even when I had follow up
questions. Thanks again for all your help. I think I have a bad
motor.Haven't got his reply yet to my last message which was about 30
minutes ago or so but I'm sure he will confirm my final results from the
tests that I did with his help. Thanks Canyonman1963. your awesome man.
Martha Brock: this was exactly what was my problem. I thought I was going to have to buy
a control panel at $250 to $350. Thanks for the information.
chavecar1: thank you canyonman1963 i fix my dryer thanx to your video :) i change the
thermal fuse but not the operating thermostat and its working fine now :)
John Harvey: Hey there- love your video, i received my thermal fuse today, and thought
this would be really easy to replace. I took off the back of the dryer and
my thermal fuse isnt there. I have a kenmore elite quietpak 9-- is my
thermal fuse in the front part by chance?
RoachForLife: Thanks for the video. Dumb question but where do I buy a replacement fuse,
direct from Kenmore? I have a model 110.65062500 dryer.
Also unrelated but if you can help thats great. Before the button stopped
working it did weird things, like it would randomly beep in the middle of
the night (basically the control unit would light up without being
touched). Also a few times the tumbler would be going even when the door
was down. IE I was removing clothes and it would randomly turn on and spin
a few times. Ive lived with it but maybe there is something else I should
be replacing while I'm in there. Thanks!!
Regina Griffith: Dryer made a loud noise and then quit working in the middle of a dry cycle.
Also smelled like something was burning. Checked the belt and it was
fine. Do you think it may be the fuse and/or thermostat? If not, any
other suggestions? Just a poor single woman trying to fix it myself to
save $$$. Thank you!
Robert S Carlton: Hey just wanted to say watched your video, led me to this video and found
the problem. Great job on your video save me alot of money. And I
subscribed to your channel and I am going to try to fix old washer. Thanks
Oneta Bibbs: I just want to say I am a 50 year old woman and I did this myself. Thanks
for such a useful video, you made a woman powerful in her ability to do
things on her own.
John Harvey: are there any videos for taking this front part off?
Jorge Caleno: thanks..good video
Ed Ag: Dude Air Conditioning and Refrigeration is a Long Steep Cliff that I'm not
sure to jump into and I was looking around and found your channel . I
wanted to ask you do you think it's a good Idea to begin working on small
and moderate sized appliances and then Tackle the Goliath that is
Refrigeration Systems?So I can make money and also be able to support
myself and study more?thank you for reading
Diana Avina: Thank you! I already ordered the thermal fuse, but I guess I did not need
it.. it was only a couple of dollars. I ordered the heating element too..
Hope to get it soon and get this dryer up and running.. Guess my drive belt
broke and the heating element both went out at the same time.. Thank you
again for your quick reply.. :))
Diana Avina: If the dryer runs but does not heat up do I need one of these or just a
heating element or maybe both?
VintageVideos2009: Thanks for the excellent video - had my thermal fuse replaced in 15 minutes
with this How To!
Nuri Lean: Love your videos I use them as references I'm in school for HVAC/R and
found that it's just as easy to fix appliances there mostly the same
problems and once you know what to look for the most complicated things
Dan Schroeder: great video. very clear and helpful.
Irving James: Thanks a lot!!! My dryer stop working this weekend and after finding your
video, I was able to trouble shoot it down to the Thermal fuse. I order the
parts from amazon. Got them today installed in 5 minutes dryer is working
like a charm. Thanks
Nathan Sharp: If a thermal fuse is out, will it not start at all, or will it start but
blow cold air?
Miss Jackson: Oh my Goodness! Thank you! Thank you! Quick run to the Sears outlet for the
parts. 37.00 total. Replacement was quick and easy! Thanks to your video
and will be making donations! You deserve it!
pmet me-ail: Is a 3390719 interchangeable with the 3392519?
kmayfield72: Thank you! I followed your steps and had the dryer working in only 10
Anas Alhadad: thank you so much for the fully detailed step by step clip.
i did use your instructions to replace the fuses in my dryer and it worked
fine for 4 times, then the Thermal Fuse died again!
do you have any suggestions?
thanks again for sharing your professional experience with us.
Rick Altis: Fixed dryer with this excellent how to video...Thanks!
Julie Bartlett: Amazing video!! So thorough and helpful!! You saved me from needing to
spend more money on a repairman or a new dryer, at christmas time no less!!
Thank you so much!!
javier moreira: good video
Candis Daugherty: My dryer was making very high-pitched squeaking noises, then one day would
not run. I would push start, it would run for a few seconds, and then
stop. I watched the videos which suggested the squeaking was coming from
the idler pulley or drum bearings. I ended up replacing idler pulley, drum
bearings (which were practically not turning at all due to large amounts of
hair/threads wound around the spokes), and I replaced the belt. Dryer will
now run on the air/no heat cycle. However, when I try to start it on the
drying cycle, it runs for a few seconds again and then stops. It does heat
for those few seconds, and even seems to be overheating. Would this be
symptomatic of the thermal fuse as described in this video?
LarryManlo: Thanks help me out a lot
Samuel Y: The model # of my stackable Kenmore dryer is 417.99160810. It does not
start when the button is pushed. I cannot seem to find a fuse. I did a
continuity test on the thermastat and it checked ok. Any suggestions? Thx
canyonman1963: You are welcome!
Rudy Martinez: Thank you... I appreciate you..
canyonman1963: Most are, but not all. they make a 27 inch and a 29 inch standard dryer,
and then they make compact dryers as well. A lot of the parts are the same,
but you should always look up what you need for your dryer using your model
number to get the right part, OR get the part number right off the part
that went bad.
piddler51: Btw, I will be checking your videos out. I think I will find some useful
info in them. In my case, I am familiar with working on appliances. Been
awhile though, until recently.
canyonman1963: It doesnt matter for a 2-wire tstat or fuse, but now there are models that
have 3 and 4 wires going to tstats, and on these it does matter. It is
simply good practice, having wires on correct terminals always matters on
switches (such as 3 to 5 wires on push to start switch) so to be in a "best
practices" frame of mind when working with wiring is helpful to less
experienced persons working on something they are not familiar with. It
just matters more times than not, so best to stay in the habbit
Rudy Martinez: very good video . Thank you sir. I will be changing thermal fuse and
operating thermostat tomorrow. Does home depot have the part?
canyonman1963: Thats great, I hope the videos will be of use to you!
1OkiesKid: I don't know if your earlier video is any better, but in this one your
fingers are in the way!! Not showing a close up is another negative! You
didn't even shoe what the parts looked like! It seems you were to intent on
talking about and showing the sharp edges! Informative, but not visual and
isn't that what videos are all about?
Rudy Martinez: Are the parts universal for all whirlpool dryers..
canyonman1963: Sure, visual is important, and I just re-watched the video. Unless you
don't know what a terminal is, and how to touch it with a test lead, I
don't see this as being a problem. Now, if you DON'T know how to touch a
terminal with a test lead, then this type of repair is above your
capabilities. Anyone that is a little bit mechanically inclined even should
be able to use this without any problems. Oh, and not getting cut IS
important. People CAN get seriously injured if not careful of the edges!
piddler51: Tell me why it is so important to place wires back on the stats in a
certain way. I don't remember it ever making a difference. If so, wouldn't
it be important to not put the stats back on " upside down "? In my mind,
there is no "upside down" for a stat. I really am not arguing the point, I
just don't understand this. I mean a stat will let power through either way
just completing/opening/closing a circuit. I have seen this same thing
posted elsewhere. always confuses me a little.
canyonman1963: No, I dont think home depot will have it, You will need to go to an
appliance parts store to buy the parts. Try google for appliance parts and
your city to find one in your area. Thanks for watching my video!
