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, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
removed the rear panel to gain access to the internals of the dryer, removed the one screw that retains the fuse, out with the old and in with the new.delivery of the part was 2 days sooner than expected.could not have been a simpler process!

Went on line and determined the problem was the thermal fuse. Removed the rear panel of the dryer, removed the leads from the thermal fuse, hooked them together and started the dryer. That confirmed the problemwas the existing fuse.Ordered the new thermal fuse, installed the fuse, hooked up the wires and it works finel Very simple fix. About a 10 year old dryer.
tested continuity, determined thermal fuse was open. PartSelect sent a new fuse very quickly, and it was just a matter of reconnecting the wires and putting the back cover on the dryer. Started right up.
Checked on your website for common problems w/this model dryer,highest probability was the thermal fuse being blown,so I ordered one & checked the vent for being plugged,no problem there,removed the back of the dryer replaced the fuse(very easy to do)put everything back together & started it up...all set now.Thanks for your help
Just removed the back panel with nut driver . Located the parts and replaced one at a t-ime. I replaced all the parts that I order , so I really can't say which part fixed it. But working good now.
this was a super easy job! i unplugged the dryer, removed the back panel, located the fuse on the bottom left side, replaced it, put the panel back on, plugged it back in and IT WORKED! this was the first appliance repair job for me and i am so glad i found this site. it probably saved me $100.00 or so doing it myself. thank you!!!
First I removed the back of the dryer. Then I used a multimeter to check the thermostsats and the one time use fuse. I found that the fuse had burnt out and one of the thermostats ha checked bad. I changed the fuse by removeing the one screw and lifting the fuse out. Replaced the fuse and reinstalled. I also made sure that the fan for the dyer and the lint trap area were clean. I also changed both of the thermostats while I had the dryer apart. Reassembled the dryer. Everything worked. NICE! No repair bills or buying a new unit.
removed cover then pulled wires with a plier, unscrewed the fuse and installed new fuse then put back cover plugged in power cord, fired dyer and run dryer for 2 minutes and felt warm air coming out of the exhaust.
So I opened the back up, and looked down the flame shoot and I could see that the igniter was never glowing red. (You can actually see the red glow of the igniter when its working right, then you here the solonoid click and flame. But again all this when its working correctly.) So anyway, no heat no glowing red. I took the voltmeter out, grounded 1 lead and just followed the voltage (using the schematic provided), through the switches, yada yada trying to trace how far it got. Voltage got to 1 side of thermal fuse, but not to other side. Bingo. Disconnected fuse and did continuity check - open. All of this took diagnosing took 1/2 hour to hour. Not really counting toward fix. Ordered the part at parts select. Put a jumper over the fuse so that clothes could still be dried (probably not recommended but it works). Part arrived in 2 days. Didn't even put the back panel on.The part is right on the back. 1 screw, 2 space terminals. Takes all of 3 minutes to replace. Then another 5 minutes to put the back panel on and vent hose back on. Most of that is because you are working in a cramped space. (I don't have the biggest laundry room.)Can't beat parts select! Parts select + a little know how, saved me about $400.
I guess you could say I went through the process of elemanation, first I replased the thermostat,removed 2 screws pulled off 3 wired with a pair of pliers put them on the new one, still no hot air so I replaced the fuse, took out 1 screw removed 2 wires and placed them on the new fuse, still no hot air, finally I replaced the thermal cut-off switch and WOW that was it hot air was blowing again, the process was very easy I ordered everything from parts slect and they were here the next day, only had to take the back off the dryer with a nut wrench, locate the thernastat, fuse and thermal cut-off which was just above the heating coil I removed 1 screw pulled off 2 wires and place them on the new one. very easy and the repair storys really helped locating the problem
Pulled the dryer out unplugged it took the back off the dryer located both parts followed the videos and it was very easy to take the parts off and replace them. Once I got them hooked back up I tried the dryer and it was heating and working like new again.
Firstly, i checked the website for Problems and solutions. i was able to diagnose 2 possible sources of the problem. The Thermostat or the coils. i bought the both.I removed the front.I checked the right bottom where the burner was located. i traced the location of the coils. i removed just 2 screws to free them from the bracket. then replaced the new ones. it works just as before. i did not replace the thermostat. Please disconnect the power supply and the gas supply before doing any repair.
The whirlpool Duet has just enough access that the thermal fuse can be changed by just removing the lower panel below the door. I removed the two 1/4 inch lower panel fasteners. The fuse is visible just behind the vent elbow in the front of the machine. I removed the single fastener, removed the two wires and swapped in the new fuse. Simple project, the video really helped. Did not take 15 minutes, start to finish.
I take me less then 15 min easy to change parts all you need is a screwdriver and replace the parts save me some good money thanks.??
it was very easy just had to take two nuts off and wires and reapply
