Hi...At first when my dryer stopped working I looked on your page and learned about the Thermal Fuse. I replaced that and cleaned all the dust and lint out from the back of the dryer, plugged it back in and it seemed to work fine. Except for it being louder, and squeal at the beginning of turning it on. I dried 3 loads of clothes with it..still loud and initial squeal, and now it is dead again. I checked the fan and nothing seems to be blocking it. Any suggestions? :(

Loud..squeal....not good. Possibly motor binding and overheating. Some info on disassembly - CLICK HERE

Follow the instructions for a Kenmore with the lint filter on top. Check to see if the motor spins freely. May also be a worn front drum bearing, or one of the rear rollers.

Assuming there is a 110. in front of the model number meaning this was made by Whirlpool, could be drum rollers, idley pulley, something between the drum and the back or front panel, motor bearings, if nothing is stuck in the blower vent assy...about down to taking it apart to see what is making the noise...howevver these noises usually will not make the fuse open unless it is causing an air-flow problem...like the blower wheel is broken on the motor shaft and not allowing for proper air flow thru the dryer....is the blower wheel in the front or back???

This one's a blower in back model (lint screen on top). Possible something is caught up in there.

I will check it out, confusing me though is, the dryer made no noises before it quit the first time. Only after I changed the thermal fuse and cleaned the lint out is when it started getting noisy.

Would that cause it to stop working entirely?

Look closer to see what the three numbers are before the model number....there ARE three numbers.....something might have gotten jammed up when you cleaned the lint out, what areas were you messing with??
