I figured it out, there shouldn't be a "C" in the model #

Take a look at the fuse linked here

Fuse Link

Pop the top up on the dryer (with it unplugged)
The fuse is attached to the right rear wall of the dryer
right beside the terminal block (where the cord attaches)
unplug the wires from the fuse and check continuity
no continuity = bad...and if so check your venting
for a crimp or restriction as well as the lint filter housing,
it tends to clog up at the bottom.

correct the problem before replacing the fuse (if it's bad)
or it will blow again.

checked the thermo fuse today and that was the problem, was able to get one in town and is now working...thank you!!
I however couldn't figure out what caused it to go, the lint trap was clean as well as the fan and tube going outside. I did find a ball bearing on the ground that is from the back of the machine that goes against the drum bearing but the metal strap piece thats suppose to keep it in place from falling out the back is broken so i can't get it to stay in. would this cause much of a problem with running the machine??

thanks

Make sure the dryer doesn't heat in the "air only" cycle


The bearing is a grounding ball,
I personally would replace it

If you are sure that all the venting is clear and
you continue to blow fuses you may need this kit.

Has the dryer been in its current location for long?

Dryer Vent

Vent should be rigid metal.
Short lengths of flexible metal may be OK, if not crimped when moving the Dryer into place.
NO plastic
NO PVC
NO screws
Foil Duct Tape is OK.
With an empty load, Timed Dry, High Heat, the vent temperature should cycle somewhere between 135F and 160F
Check / clean the Dryer Vent
Disconnect the Dryer Vent and check for good air-flow there and where it exits the house.
Check the Vent air temperature at the back of the Dryer.
If you have a Harbor Freight Store near you,
