Ok, the dryer turns on and runs fine.  The ignitor doesn't glow.  I checked for continuity on the thermostat on the top of the vent.  The vents aren't clogged, so I don't think it overheated.  What else do I need to check?  Thank you, Oh Wise Ones...

Did you check the thermal fuse behind the rear panel? Is the ignitor open electrically? Is the burner circuit getting power?

Sorry for the delay, I've been swamped.  I checked what I *think* is the thermal fuse, and I don't get any continuity.    It's labled T-O-D Microtemp.  The other printing on it is 6L4101091C 3392519 HCH4

I can send a pic if needed.  Where can I get a replacement?  Thanks!

 


Update: I actually found a local(well, close enough to drive) branch of RepairClinic, and their website says they have the part in stock.  I'll pick it up tomorrow on the way home from work.  Hopefully, that fixes it.

Does the thermostat typically fail at the same time?

The fuse failed because the air in the dryer vent tubing was too hot, now you either have a stopped up dryer vent from the dryer to  the outside or that cycling thermostat next to the fuse is not shutting the heat off at the correct temperaturers.  Whirlpool suggests to change the thermostat every time the fuse fails....your call....:cool:

Well, the vent isn't blocked, so I guess it's the thermostat.  Ok, I need to find another $20...  Thanks!
