Removed the old fuse and replaced with the new fuse. Of course, I had to remove the back of the dryer but very easy and the cost was less than $20.00. Definitely worth it because we did not have the money for a new dryer. PartSelect.com is awesome!

When the part came in my husband was not home and I figured I could put this part on myself. I took the part downstairs, used the nut driver to remove one screw, took the two wires off the old therma fuse, put the wires on the new therma fuse, and screwed the new therma fuse onto the back of the dryer. It really couldn't have been any easier.

Dryer not heating up

This has happened several times to my KitchenAid dryer. It cost more than $100 to bring someone in to repair. Fortunately, I saved my bills and saw the part "thermal fuse" listed. I researched that and found your website. I couldn't believe how easy it was to fix. The part cost less than $15 and the diagrams you provided were a big help. I was about to purchase a new dryer, easily $500. Your site saved me a bunch of money. How I fixed? Unscrewed the back panel of the dryer. Found a part that resembled the part you sent me. Slipped it out. Put the new one in...that is it. I also figured that one reason the part keeps burning out is because my duct has to bend to get to the outside vent. The obstruction probably causes the dryer to overheat more often than not. I pulled the dryer 6 inches more away from the wall to see if that helps. My fuse was going out about every 2 years.

Dryer would not turn on.

Was working fine one load and not the next. I remembered we had used this site for our dishwasher so gave it a try. Went with most common problem first. Ordered Sun rec'd Tues. Took longer to vacuum the back of dryer then it did to replace the fuse. Cost less than 30 bucks including shipping. Video was cool too.

Previous consumer help advised to check the Thermal Fuse. A quick check using an ohm meter or simply connecting the leads together, confirmed that the Fuse was open and bad. The other essential item is to clean & vacuum all lint from all other dryer parts on the top, drum & back of the dryer. Be sure to also perform a check of the Cycling Thermostat, located near the Thermo Fuse. This is not a difficult repair. Just be sure to disconnect the 220 V and the circuit breaker. A $9 fuse was better than the cost of a repairman or new dryer. Barry Burke, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Dryer would not heat up, but ran.

Could not be any easier. For less than $20 and 15 minutes time, I couldnt be happier.
All that was needed is a nutdriver to remove a 1/2 dozen screws to take the back panel off. Then a phillips screw driver to remove the thermal fuse. Unplug 2 wires and then attach them to the new fuse. Put it all back together and done!. Working dryer.
PS: I had enough gas line and ducting connected to the dryer ,so thatt I was able to get behind it with out removing them. This may have taken another 15 min. if I needed to do this and two adjustable wrenches.

I took one piece off at a Time. Made sure that each wire went to the correct place. I felt so good as a woman to be able to fix a necessity in our House without having to call a repairman to fix it for us. We are 3 women in our New Home. Im 46 My life partner is 48 and Our Daughter 17. I can't tell you how thankful i am for watching your video on how to do it. Thanks Part select. Dena , Ave & Fe .

I watched the videos associated with the parts. They were easy to understand and I could follow the steps without difficulty. I replaced both the cycling thermostat and thermal fuse. Separately, I also replaced the "push-to-start" switch. Dryer would still not start. I called the repairman. Problem turned out to be a loose wire that had shorted out in the electrical bar near the "push-to-start" switch. All parts I replaced are determined to be good and will be tried next time I experience the dryer "not starting".

Unpluged dryer first! Diconnected the vent hose.Took out 9 screws out of back panel.1 screw for the thermal fuse disconnected the two wires. Put new one in connected the wires. Then took out 1 screw that held the thermostat in place took 4 wires off. Put new one in reconnected the wires. Vacuumed out the back. Put back panel on. Connected the vent hose, plugged the dryer in. Pushed the start button & started drying clothes. Very easy!

To make sure the dryer didn't die catastrophically, I checked to make sure the timer, the light, and the push to start start switch and the door switch were still working. After they were diagnosed to be working properly, I unplugged the dryer and pulled it back from the wall so I would have enough room to work behind it. The first item you will need is the wiring diagram. If you do not have one, one can be obtained online by using your dryer brand and model number. The next thing you will need is a quality digital multimeter that measures resistance or continuity. The last thing you will need is a 1/4" nutdriver. The first thing you will need to do is remove the exhaust tube from the back of the dryer. The second step is to remove a small black plate located near a green ground screw. The 3rd step is to remove the large black cover on the back of the dryer. Once this is removed, you will need to locate the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is a small component that has 2 blue wires connected to it. It is located on the housing where the steam from your clothes leads to the exhaust port. The first thing you need to do is disconnect the 2 blue wires. Once the wires are disconnected, set the multimeter to resistance. The unit of resistance is ohms and the greek letter omega is used. The red lead of your multimeter goes one metal tabe of the fuse and the black lead goes on the other one. If the multimeter measures 0. L ohms, then the fuse is bad and needs to be replaced. If the multimeter reads 00.00 ohms then the fuse is good and you have another problem. I hope these instructions were useful.
