Had to replace a thermal fuse in the dryer. They had ran the dryer with the lint tube blocked which in turn blew the fuse. I tested the fuse with a ohms meter which showed no resistance telling me that it had shut off the dryers heater to prevent a fire. Ordered the correct from parts select. It was sent quickly. You must pop the top on this Maytag using a putty knife than remove the belt and drum to access the fuse. Installed new fuse reassembled dryer plugged it in and everything worked fine. Another job well done!
