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.

This part works with the following products: Dryer, Washer Dryer Combo.

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.

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:

How do i check the thermal fuse

Sandi
Answer:

Hi Sandi, That's a great question, you can use an multi meter and test the continuity of the fuse.If no current is detected, it means there's no continuity and the fuse is defective. Good luck with this repair.

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:

My dryer works just does heat up thinking thermal fuse thanks

Dave for model number LEQ9858PW1
Answer:

Hi Dave, Thank you for your inquiry. If your dryer is not heating the most common parts to fix the issue are the heating element, the thermal fuse, the thermal cut-off kit, the high limit thermostat, the heating element connection wire kit and the internal bias thermostat to name a few. To verify which part is causing the issue, you will need a multimeter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Where to find and how to replace thermal cutoff

Krtystyna for model number LGR8648PQ0
Answer:

Hi Krystyna, Thank you for your inquiry. The thermal cut off is found near the duct assembly. Before attempting the repair, unplug your appliance and then remove the back panel. Next disconnect the old jumper wire and remove the mounting screw and slide the old cut-off fuse out of the slot. Disconnect the wire, and install the new cut-off fuse by securing it with the mounting screws and reconnect the wire. Now remove the mounting screws to detach the old high limit thermostat. Remove the wire and install the new thermostat by aligning it in place and reattach it with the mounting screws. Reconnect the wire and then connect the fuse and the thermostat with the new jumper wire and put the back panel back on the appliance. Plug the appliance back in to see if it is working correctly. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Richard for model number 11074832400
Answer:

Hello Richard, thank you for contacting us. If you are getting no heat but everything comes on, it could be one of the thermostats or the heating element. Usually the thermostats will go bad first, you can test these with a multimeter. Hope this helps!

Question:

This dryer has an end of cycle signal that buzzes when the dryer time has ended. It stopped functioning a couple of weeks ago and i could not find a part online that fixes that function. The closest one i can find is the thermal fuse. Is that the likely culprit or is there another one i should suspect?

Janice for model number cabrio dryer WED62005w1
Answer:

Hello Janice, thank you for getting in touch. The buzzer is located in the main control board for the dryer. You would need to replace the whole control board in order to replace the buzzer. Control board, part number: PS11746535 $211.87 Hope this helps!

Dryer would not come on, light still worked, timer still ran

I removed the back of the dryer, removed the single screw holding the fuse in place and checked it for continuity. It didn't work, so I placed an order and 3 days later I was back in business. the replacement took about five minutes.

Replaced thermal fuse

There were two tricky parts - one, was locating the part to repair on the dryer. One set of instructions said it was on the back of the dryer behind the panel. Once I removed that panel I realized that the thermal fuse was on the front. After I identified where the part was (bottom front), the second tricky part was getting to the screw. You just need a mini-socket set and relatively small hands. A magnetic light that can attach to the dryer while you are working is also useful. This would have been a 30-45 minute job had I known precisely where the part was that needed replacing. Otherwise, this was relatively easy.

Dryer would not start

I simply removed the back panel and and took 2 photos showing the wiring I planed on disconnecting. I discovered the door switch was faulty. Ordered that part and the thermal fuse just in case. Both arrived in 2 days as promised. I discovered in my email confirming order the two short videos plainly showing the step by step procedure to replace these 2 items. It took less than 30 minutes to replace, put the panel back, plug in and it started with no problems. I was ready to scrap this machine and buy a new one - spent 30 bucks and saved over 400. Because of the fast delivery and the great online videos, this DIY project was unbelievably east. Thank you All smiles here.

The dryer timer would not work and the dryer heat would only work in the medium or low heat position.

I followed the video instruction provided by this site exactly. Replaced the timer first by removing back plate after unplugging electricity from wall. Then removed the timer by unscrewing 3 screws. With needle nose pliers removed all connector wires. Placed all connector wires on new timer (all were well marked). Positioned new timer and screwed timer into place with three screws (2 in back; 1 in front). Replaced back of timer. Removed back of dryer next by using nut driver, removed vent, removed 2 screws and unplugged 2 connectors, removed heat sensor. Replaced connectors on new sensor and screwed sensor into place. Reattached back panel and heat vent. Total time 40 minutes.

The dryer just stopped heating up but would run with no heat.

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.
