A blown thermal fuse could be preventing your dryer from running. The images below show the location of the thermal fuse on the common types of Kenmore 80 Series dryers. If your dryer has the lint screen in the housing just inside the dryer door, then it should have the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image. To access the thermal fuse
unplug the dryer
and remove the bottom front service panel as shown below. You will likely need to remove the lint duct assembly as well to access the thermal fuse. If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can check the thermal fuse for continuity. Remove one wire (with the dryer still unplugged) and check the resistance across the leads of the fuse with the volt/ohm meter. It should measure near zero ohms of resistance. If it measures Ol (open load of infinite resistance) then it will need to be replaced. If you do not have a volt/ohm meter then you can tape the wires together with electrical tape to bypass the fuse for a short test. Reassemble the dryer and see if it runs with the thermal fuse bypassed. If it does then replacing the thermal fuse will fix your dryer problem. NOTE: Do not continue to run the dryer with this fuse bypassed. It is an essential safety feature of the dryer that must be replaced. Also, check the lint screen and the exhaust vent duct system of the dryer for a clog or restriction. Wash the lint screen with water and completely dryer it to remove softener residue that could be accumulated on it (especially if you use dryer softener sheets). Check the flexible vent hose on the back of the dryer for kinks or clogs. Check the exhaust vent duct system to the outside of your home. Make sure that the vent damper on the outside of your home is opening properly. If an exhaust air flow restriction is left unresolved, then the thermal fuse will likely blow again shortly after replacing it.
If your dryer has the lint screen that pulls out of the top panel of the dryer then the thermal fuse will be located inside the back panel of the dryer as shown in the second image.
Unplug the dryer
and remove the back panel of the dryer to access this location. (NOTE: If you have the type of dryer shown in the first image then you will not be able to remove the back panel.)
Since you indicated that your husband encountered an electrical shock, you apparently understand the importance of
unplugging the dryer
before accessing internal components.
If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore 80 Series dryer. The model number is usually on around the opening of the dryer. Open the door and look around the sides of the opening. The model number will likely start with 110. . .
