Just replaced motor, door switch and timer in August and the dryer has worked great until today when it stopped working midway through a cycle. It will not restart. Checked for loose connections that may have worked loose from my earlier repair and all connections seem to be intact. Any help is greatly appreciated.

That was it!!! Replaced bad fuse and everything is running fine. Still concerned over what caused it to overheat in the first place. Vents were cleaned two months ago when motor was installed so that isn't the problem this time. BTW, one of the wire leads on the fuse was slightly charred???????

Thanks for your help.

Sorry for the slow response. I had forgotten to mark the topic so that I would get an email notification when someone responded.

... one of the wire leads on the fuse was slightly charred ????

a loose / dirty / bad connection can over-heat and will char the Terminal and Wire
If not repaired / replaced, may blow the Fuse again

also:
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,
$ 4.99 sometimes on sale for $ 2.99
