Hi all,

I'm working on this dryer, as the title says, its spins but never leaves the "Sensing" status, and the clothes never dry.  Before it completely stopped drying, it would take an extremely long time to dry clothes.  I did a scan I found online and it came up with a "69" (or "6G") which I believe means all the electronics are ok.  I think its is either the 3392519 Dryer Thermal Fuse or 8577274 Thermistor.  I'm leaning more towards the thermal fuse. 

What is you opinion? Or should I just change both? Or am I completely off track here?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Jeff

if the thermal fuse fails on a gas dryer it will tumble but not heat  on the electric models if fuse fails it will be dead

Yeah, this one is gas, so it sounds like the thermal fuse is the issue.  Any chance its the thermistor? Or would that be throwing money away?  I have to order the parts, and i dont want to have to order a 2nd time and wait another 5 days

thanks!

Thanks, i have one of those, I will check it out.  If the fuse is blown, that means something else is wrong, correct?

If the fuse is bad it would be a good idea to check the vent and blower wheel for lint build up.
What did you end finding wrong with your dryer?
