Answer: Our dryer did this...just wouldn't start. My dh had tried just about everything. I finally got online and looked around. I finally found the answer. There is a thermal fuse on the blowing unit that had gone bad. He had checked one fuse, but didn't know this one was even here. YAY! We don't have to spend $$ that on a dryer!!!

Answer: We are having the same exact problem with our Kenmore 90 series. I can't find my book for my dryer. Can you tell me where to locate the fuses?
