It wouldn’t start. Unplugged it tried it again and it worked. Let it sit
for a couple of hours and tried it again. Wouldn’t start again. Unplugged
It again and it started. I’ll try replacing the fuse as it seems to be an
intermittent problem. It may go out completely soon. thanks for the

Shelley Hutchins says:

Hello Mr. Bill, my question is about taking the back off. It appears that
my back does not come off. Rather when I removed the screws, it looked like
it released the drum casing. Could this be due to my dryer being a cheaper
model? It is a Kenmore 90 series. If this is the case do I have any other
options for getting to the fuse?

B Mauritsen says:

I have a whirlpool duet, lights come on but when I press start it beeps
once the sensing light turns on and that’s it (no buzzing or humming
noises). I tried the diagnostics codes and came up with 02, i also checked
the door, lint and moisture sensor. any suggestions?

Thanks for the video! My dryer is doing exactly what you describe in your

John Bedell says:

Bill, thanks so much. Can I run the dryer with the fuse by-passed until
the part arrives? Two days? I have vacuumed out the dryer intake and
blower along with flushing out the vent. What is your thoughts?

I am not going to recommend you do this.

Bathsheba says:

Kathy Katherine says:

I had just finished installing a new heater element around 1 month ago then
the dryer would NOT start. I just changed the thermal fuse and IT
STARTED. Thank you for making the video. It’s really EASY to do, but I
find putting the back on again the hardest. Lol :D
