This thermal fuse is designed for use in dryers. It is a safety mechanism that stops the flow of electricity to the heating element when a dryer overheats. When this fuse is faulty, your dryer will not start or it will not heat properly. This is a one-time fuse, meaning it cannot be re-set. It must be replaced when there is no longer continuity between the terminals. This replacement part features two 3/16 inch terminals, and is sold individually. It attaches to the blower wheel housing. Blown fuses can be caused by clogged dryer vents. We recommend checking to make sure all of the vents are clear when you perform this repair.

This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Estate, Crosley, Inglis, Maytag, Amana, Admiral, Magic Chef.

Question:

This is the third time in the past seven months that my dryer has blown a thermal fuse. The first time I didn’t think anything of it but after the third time I think there has to be something wrong. I clean out the lint trap every time… what should I check next?

Alison
Answer:

Hi Alison, although there are a few causes to this issue, the most common one is the exhaust ducting. If there is too much heat trapped inside the ducting it will cause the thermal fuse to open. What you need to find is any air flow problems. Is there breakage or clogging in your duct? Is it too long? The next thing to check would be if the ducting has condensation or water in it, or if there are dryer sheets in the blower wheel. Lastly you can check the drum seal to see if it is malfunctioning. Best of luck!

Question:

The dryer died mid cycle and I haven’t been able to turn it on since. I just can’t figure out what is happening. I already changed the thermal fuse, and it still isn’t starting. What should I look for next? And yes it does have power.

Bradley
Answer:

Hi Bradley, thanks for getting in touch. If you already replaced your thermal fuse and that has not fixed the problem, check your door switch to see if it is faulty. I hope this helps!

Question:

I tried to turn my dryer on today and it wouldn’t budge. When I opened the door the lights wouldn’t turn on and there aren’t any lights on the control panel. It’s plugged in and I didn’t trip any breakers. Do you think it’s the thermal fuse or thermostat?

Justin
Answer:

Hello Justin, thanks for getting in touch. This sounds like it is the thermal fuse WP3392519, but before replacing it you should inspect and test it for visible damage or indication of faultiness. If the thermal fuse is open and not working, your next check should be the exhaust ducting, since it is the most common reason for a thermal fuse to malfunction. Please let us know if you have further questions.

I could tell him what Had already happened and he
investigated further. (heat even on just air setting)

fuse. Have not tried the drier yet. Hope all works
better this time. Thank you for your part of solving
the mystery.

Gas dryer would not heat

The igniter or gas burner would not light. At first I thought it was the igniter since this is usually what goes out first. I removed the igniter and it checked it with an ohm meter. I got 60 ohms which is in range. I ran the dryer and back-tracked the wiring with a volt meter. There was no voltage at the igniter or gas solinoids. The voltage stopped at the thermal fuse located in the exhaust port. I jumpered across the fuse with #12 wire and everything worked. Replaced the fuse and cleaned all the exhaust ports, ducts and piping. Working good since.

The dryer wouldn't turn on

Searched for the model number diagram online and ordered the part. Took off the back of the dryer and found the fuse and replaced it. Cleaned out the lint/vent hose with a vacuum, put the back of dryer on and reattached the hose. And the dryer worked! Beat spending $100+ for a serviceman to show up.

Dryer would run but wasn't getting any heat

After checking some of the tips on the part select sight I removed the back panel of the dryer and located the thermal fuse. I checked the fuse with a meter I borrowed from a friend and it was bad so I ordered the fuse and followed the advise from some of the other tips I read and also replaced the thermostat. Much easier than anticipated. Dryer is working just fine now. Parts were at my house in 2-3 days. Total cost about 31 dollars.

My dryer wouldn't start. My son and I looked at the electrical drawing and deciced it was the fuse. He took it a part and the fuse was bad. We saw that the belt was worn so we decided to order one also.

My son did it for me. It saved me from buying a new dryer. We received the parts in one day!

Dryer would spin but no heat.

Removed rear cover, removed thermal fuse, put a continuity checker across the contacts, no current--burnt out fuse, replace with new...works 4.0 again. Used vacuum cleaner to remove all the dust/lint around all the duct work/wires---prevents fires and clothes from smelling like smoke from the gas heater burning off the clinging dust/lint.

Dryer runs but will not heat up

This all happened Sunday afternoon. I looked online for "my dryer wont get hot".
They suggested the thermal fuse. I unplugged the dryer, pulled it away from the wall and looked on the back. There was a metal cover so I removed it. 1/4 nut driver. There was the fuse and the thermostat. I disconnected the 2 wires off the fuse and the 1 1/4 nut and we typed the number off the fuse in the search line and it took us to replacement dryer parts at parts select.com and it had a picture and I said order it. Your site suggested we replace the thermostat also so for a few extra dollars I got both parts - put them in and dryer is working fine now. I was pleased with the whole process.

Thermostat went bad and wiped out thermal fuse.

Tested thermal fuse with ohm meter and found no continuity, figured thermostat did not open and burnt fuse once it hit 195 degrees. Replaced the two of them and all is good know.

Termal Fuse and Cycling thermostat were on the outer shell of the dryer under the rear sheld. It was tougher removing the rear sheld than changing the parts..
