James: Make sure the thermal fuse is good. It may measure continuity with an Ohm meter but under a current draw/load it could open. When the door is shut; blue and white wires are connected to complete the neutral circuit to the motor. Also; make sure the dryer is getting the proper power supply of 220 and Neutral. Reset the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer. NOTE: Instead of cutting the wires, check the door switch for continuity with an Ohm meter across blue and white with the door closed.

Same issue just happened to my dryer (same model) I tested the thermal fuse and it is fine. I am yet to try bypassing the door switch. I got the top section off last night, what do I have to do to bypass it? Just cut the white and blue wires and twist them together?

Thanks

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I must assume the dryer will not start and I must assume the dryer has the proper voltage supply (220 volts). I must also assume you by passed the door switch correctly by jumping the white wire to the blue wire.

The dryer not likely starting because of a faulty thermal fuse (key#23) which is located on the blower housing (key#11). The thermal fuse will fail if the dryer overheats due to a clogged venting system or lint filter. This can also be caused by a shorted heating element. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.

The thermal fuse can be disconnected and tested with an ohm meter for continuity. I added a YouTube video showing how to

test

the thermal fuse.

The thermal fuse is accessible by

disconnecting the power cord from the power source

and removing the rear panel. See image below. The thermal fuse is part #3392519 and is available at
