SOURCE: My Kenmore 90 series dryer won't heat

The thermal fuse is going to be located on the heating element housing. When you take off the front panel you will see your lint screen housing. You will need to remove that to get to the element housing. Once that's out of the way the thermal fuse should be right on top of the housing. It is small and has two small wires coming off of it. The wires should be different colors. Just don't get it mixed up with the thermostat. Just match it up with the new one that you have. It is held in place with two small screws. Let me know if you have any other questions or still can't find it, also let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad to help out.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dryer front panel

I located a video on youtube.com free of charge. I removed the lint screen, and removed the two screws located in the lint screen housing. Then I pryed the top off near the front of the dryer, which has two clips. Then I remove the two screws locate on the top of the front panel, but they are located on the inside. I removed the door lid swich by removing the two screws. Lastly, I pulled the front panel outward and pulled up lightly. The front panel was off. The issue I had was the dryer would heat up and then got cool after five minutes. The solution was to replace the coils. Important point is that the coils ohm readings were within specifications, but I did located information on the web that indicated this was a potential solution to the issue, and I replaced the coils even though the resistances were within specification. Total cost $22.95 plus tax.

SOURCE: How do I open the front panel of GE Spacemaker 2.0 ? Fuse?

there are screws either on top of or in the grille that allow you to remove it. after screws are removed, open the door, pull lightly toward you starting at the control side if it does not pull, then it may have to be pushed toward the hinge side, then pulled out. behind the grille, is the screw attaching the control panel. lift the panel up before pulling out. Just to add a thought,if the display lights up it is probably not the fuse, although, in some models there is a high voltage fuse, it is pretty rare.

How it works: Late model Ge top loading washer


The late model top loading GE washer is much different than it's original models that were so much more dependable than these newer ones are. To access the innards you must forst remove the front panel. Older models had the top pop up first but these newer models have the top bolted down. To get the top up you must first remove the front panel by using downward force on the top between the tiop and the front panel. It is not easy even for eperienced techs but cuss it a minute and it will come off. Once it is off you will notice the washer has an elecetric pump. Strings and junk get into this pump. It is easy to take apart and cleanup. The tub is suspended on 4 rods and the lateral movement is kept in check by 4 rubber cord mounted to the top called bungies. The motor and tranny can easily be accessed by removing the tub from the washer. After disconecting the power cable and pump the tub lifts out. Not all GE washers use the same motor or the same transmission method. Some do not even have a tranny. I have some GE washer service manuals.

How can I remove the front panel of a GE space maker dryer when access to the machine's rear, top and bottom is limited?


I don't know the model but as its a compact model, I would think its a 1 piece cabinet. These can only be accessed from the rear. You will have to lift it down and work on it on the ground.

My dryer whirlpool still blow cool air but do not heat please tell me what the problem henry le


Bad heating element or bad thermo fuse.
You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the back to access the heating element. The thermo fuse is located on the side of the heating element.
If you don't have a meter to test the element and thermo fuse or just don't know how simply remove them from the dryer and take them to your local appliance repair shop and they can test them for you.

Thermal fuse location on a 110.9597590110 gas dryer


The model number of your machine doesn't seem to exist but the thermal fuse, whether dryer is electric or gas, is always located on the blower housing together with the thermistor or cycling thermostat depending on the model of the dryer. The blower housing is located at the rear of the dryer if the lint filter of you dryer is located on top of the cabinet and can be accessed by removing the rear panel.

The blower housing is located on the front right bottom of the dryer if the lint filter is located on the door. It can be accessed by removing the kick panel.

Kick Panel Removal

Once the kick panel is removed, remove the lint chute to expose the blower housing and the thermal fuse.

No power of any kind


This is commonly caused by a blown Thermal Fuse. The fuse is a small white component mounted on the blower fan assembly. There should be two wires running to it. UNPLUG the dryer and disconnect the component wires before taking any resistance readings. You should read something close to 0 ohms with a multimeter if the fuse is good. If the fuse reads bad, you must replace it.

The location of your blower fan housing depends upon the MODEL NUMBER. Since you posted no model, the easiest way to determine where these components are is by the location of the dryer lint screen.

If the lint screen is on TOP of the dryer, all your heating circuits are BEHIND the dryer. Just remove the back panel to access. The blower fan housing will be located on the lower left hand side.

If the lint screen is in the DOOR of the dryer, the heating circuits are INSIDE the dryer cabinet under the drum. You will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door for access. If the dryer has a solid front with no lower panel, you must lift the dryer topand remove the entire front panel for access. The blower fan housing is on the left hand side of the cabinet under the drum.

The following link can give you some more guidance on dryer no power issues:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574266-thorough_dryer_advice

Refer to the section that explains the possible components for "Dryer Does Not Run At All". The Thermal Fuse is the most common cause, but there are other possibilities to consider.

Now...if the thermal fuse has blown, it usually blows for a reason. The most common cause is poorly installed, kinked or clogged exhaust vent ducting. I would strongly recommend you thoroughly inspect the ducting, air blower and cabinet interior before replacing any defective components. Otherwise, these same components will fail again.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

GE DRYER HEATING ELEMENT


Yes, the whole drum needs to be removed:
Before you go trough this make sure you know for sure your elements need replacement by checking for continuity at both element terminals.
Make sure you do the same with your high limit thermostat on housing.
How to remove the drum?:
Disconnect the power source to your dryer before you begin to remove the drum. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.
Pull your dryer out from the wall. Behind it, on the bottom, you will find a lower panel that will give you access to the unit's belt tensioner (also known as an idler pulley arm). Remove the screws holding this panel in place, and then remove the panel itself. Reach inside and release the belt tension by removing the belt from the motor pinion.
Older GE dryer models have a small drum bearing inspection plate in the center of the back of the dryer. This drum bearing inspection plate provides access to the dryer's circlip (also known as an e-ring). This clip holds the rear drum shaft in place. Newer models do not have this circlip or the drum bearing inspection plate.
If yours is an older GE model with an inspection plate, remove the plate now. It will be held in place with a single screw. With the plate removed, you will be able to see the drum support shaft and the e-ring (circlip) holding the shaft in place. Use a small screwdriver to remove the e-ring. You may also want to use a magnet to keep the circlip from falling into the dryer. You will also find several metal and nylon shims between the bearing and the e-ring, inside the bearing, and between the bearing and the drum. Take careful note of how they come off so that you will be able to put them back on again in the right order.
Now remove the front panel of the dryer. There are a couple of different ways this is accomplished. Whichever method you use is dependent upon your model. Some older models have two spring catch clips under the cabinet top, one on the left side, and one on the right side of the front. Use a putty knife, or some other flat and thin object to wedge in under the cabinet top. Release both spring catches and lift the cabinet top off the dryer. In some newer models, there will be screws joining the cabinet front panel to the cabinet top. You will have to open the door in order to find these screws. Once they are found, remove them and then slide the cabinet top forward and lift it off the unit.
Next, there are two screws located in the bottom of the front panel, one in each corner. Loosen these, but do not remove them just yet. Locate and remove the two screws at the top inside of the dryer's front panel. Again, there is one screw in each corner. Proceed to remove the other two screws you have just loosened. Disconnect the door switch wires and then lift the front panel off your dryer. With the front panel removed, lift the drum and slide it out of the dryer.
NOTE: In some models, you will have to remove the dryer drum glides before you can remove the drum. Also, now that the interior of your dryer is completely exposed, it might be a good time to vacuum out all of the dust and lint that has built up in there.

Accessing the igniter on a Kitchenaid Dryer


Normal 0 Hi, UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the ignitor attached to the burner. There is a harness you can unplug to test it. If the dryer is not heating at all, before you remove the front panel, you can remove the cap on the front lower panel and start the dryer. Look inside the holw and see if the ignitor glows at all.
If it glows and then shut down before the flame lights, you will need to change the coils on top the gas valve, not the ignitor.
If the ignitor does not glow at all, you will want to test the thermo fuse before the ignitor.
Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it. I know this is a lot of info but these are most common problems.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

How to replace drum belt.
