Kenmore dryer 110.87581100


is there any fuse or switch that could blow under load?
I have a bad motor that was only turning when tub was empty. It would strain but not turn when loaded tub
while testing under load it was staining then just stopped - power to unit is ok
could it be the motor finally burned out?
does the start switch #279173 have a relay ?

Hi,

The house fuse only.
Your dryer has a thermal fuse in it, but for the heat only and nothing to do with the motor. The motor itself has a built in thermal/safety switch that can shut down the motor, it will usually reset once the motor has cooled down.

Nope.

Yes it could have.
Door switch, timer, motor safety could make the dryer dead.
