I checked the site, diagnosis - need thermal fuse and it suggested replacing thermostat as well. Viewed the video. Removed dryer hose. Used a 1/4 hex socket to remove screws from back of dryer, removed the screw from thermal fuse pulled out the fuse; inserted the new ones wires to prongs and screwed it back in. I did the same thing with the cycling thermostat. Terrific while I was in there; vacuumed all the dust out. Screwed the back on, put the vent hose on. $36...Very Happy!!! Also, viewed their video to access drum. Fixed the floppy fin inside dryer and vacuumed arount drum as well! BTW....I am a 65 year old woman!!! A very happy one! The initial job was about 20 min...doing vacuuming and drum repair was a lot longer as I had to hunt down washers to put on one of the fins so it wouldn't keep moving. Cleaning the fin of debri and lining it up etc Total time: maybe an hour and a half. TIP: People should wash their lint filters at LEAST once a year! Helps prevent overheating and fires! Thank you Part Select! Linda :)

I tried all standard tricks: checking circuitry, switches, etc. Then I read other submissions on your site, which suggested this thermal fuse was the culprit on almost 50% of cases. I got yours in 2 days, installed in no time, easy as pie. One caution: it will take an entire day if you forget to close the dryer door completely.

Viewed the videos on PartsSelect site and determined the most likely (common) problem. Ordered the Thermal fuse and recommended Thermostat. Received in only two days with standard ground delivery. Took the back off the dryer, and it took all of 10 minutes to install the new components and vacuum out the lint that has accumulated and caused the overheating. Now this 10 plus year old dryer works perfectly for a total of only 36 dollars and some change. Can't beat that!!! Will definitely use PartSelect for other repairs.

went thru all the electrical connections, finally checked the thermal fuse..it was the culprit. next time I start there. unlike older dryers, where one component gos such as the drum belt or the heating element and its only 2 years old. This thermal fuse shuts down the entire unit when it malfunctions

After checking the PartsSelect website, I found that the most likely cause for my no heat problem was the Thermal Fuse and the Cycling Thermostat. I ordered both since they are located next to each other on the dryer. I followed the instructions in the video, first removing the dryer back. Next I located and removed both parts. I also did a cleaning of the dryer compartment since the back was already removed. Installed the 2 parts according the the video and re-installed the dryer back. It is now running like new. Great website, excellent video instructions saving me $600 to replace a perfectly good working appliance.

I diagnosed the problem using the web page. It said that 60% of the people with my problem bought the Thermal Fuse. I unplugged the dryer AND cut the power at the fuse box. I used a screwdriver to remove the vent hose, a nutdriver to remove the back of the machine. The thermal fuse was right there. Removed the old one with a screwdriver, unplugged the wires from the old one and snapped on new one, and screwed it back in. Re-installed the back of the dryer and the vent hose and Whoila! It works like a champ.

I first came to the internet to resolve what was wrong. After finding the video I thought was correct I started. I used my volt/ohm meter to check the thermal fuse as instructed on the video and that was the problem. I ordered the new thermal fuse from PartSelect late in the day and it was in my hands the next evening. With in 20 minutes the dryer was doing what it was suppose to do. The hardest part was getting the back cover of the crier off and that wasn't to bad.

Learned that my Kenmore dryer was actually a Whirlpool model. Removed kick plate in front of dryer. Removed the cover to the blower wheel. Cleaned out Dryer with vacuum cleaner. Used a multimeter to check for continuity on all thermostats, fuse, and heating element. Decided it was the cycling thermostat. When ahead and replaced the fuse at the same time. Checked out the installation video on this site, wwwPartselect.com ( it was very helpful in understanding how to remove the cycling thermostat - needle nose pliers helps in pulling of the connect wire clips - knuckle buster). Ordered next day delivery. The parts were on my front door early next morning FEdEX ( i live in the very corner of the NW US). Nice!
