Thermal Fuse

PartSelect Number PS11741460

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:

  • No heat or not enough heat.
  • Will Not Start.
  • Takes too long to dry.
  • Shuts off too soon.
  • Timer will not advance.
  • Will not tumble.
  • Too hot.
  • Will not shut off.
  • Touchpad does not respond.

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.

Dryer burner wouldn't light.

I took the back panel off. Then I located the thermal fuse, and removed the screw that holds it in place. I removed the two wires. I reversed the process.

No heat / pilot was not firing

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..

Machine would overheat and would shutdown - would not restart.

Watched the online instruction directions. Disconnected the machine from the power source, remove the back panel, located the thermal fuse, removed the two wires and the old fuse. Installed the new fuse and attached the wiring. Replaced the back. Plugged in the machine. This same repair was made by a service company two months earlier at a cost of $154.13 I made the repair for under $18 and 15 minutes of my time. Very simple project - I would highly recommend PartSelect

Dryer wouldn't turn on

Used your web site to diagnose the problem. Ordered part. Part arrived the next day and within 30 minutes had the dryer up and running. Took back off of dryer, simply unscrewed the old thermal fuse and replaced it with the new one.

Powering on but no heat

The dryer was very old and was tempted to tossed it after it no longer drying clothes, but I googled to see if there was something that I can do on my own to fix it. I founs partselect.com and gave me the diagnosis and the parts that needed replacing. I ordered the the parts and in two days the fedex guy was at my door. The repair was quite easy. We followed the video on how to do it. If my husband did not clean out the vents, it would only have taken him 5 minutes to unistall the old one and install the new. There is a part of the heating element that does not come with the part. Do not throw the old one until you have removed that piece with a pliers. After everything was put back together again, the dryer works much better than from the first time we bought it.

No heat. Spinning and blowing fine.

Extremely easy! I used this website's part diagrams and videos to find out where the parts were in the dryer. I only needed a 1/4" socket on a screwdriver handle to remove the back of the dryer and the same socket for the screws holding most of the parts on (one needed a phillips screwdriver). I didnt have a ohm tester, so I ordered the heating element, cycling thermostat, thermal fuse and 250f Thermostat, knowing I could return the one(s) I didnt need. Replaced them all and guess what...it still didnt work! So I read some other people's comments and found out there was one more part I hadnt ordered that might be the problem...the THERMAL CUT OFF KIT. It has the 250F thermostat PLUS another (different) Thermal cut off fuse, that attaches several inches above the heating element. I ordered that part, got it the next day, and the Thermal cut off fuse that was in the kit (not available separately) ended up being the solution to my problem! The wire to it was actually fried, so the extra connectors in the kit were perfect, and I just cut and stripped the wire a little and put on the new connector, and the dryer works great.

Dryer would not start or run

Using my old volt/ohm meter and following the wiring diagram pasted inside the control panel,I was able to find the open circuit reading across the thermal fuse [ no reset]located down below and before the wires disappeared below the drum towards the motor. Once I found that,I jumped the circuit and it ran fine. I removed the part and found this site,ordered the piece and had it in 3 days. Install was perfectly simple....vacuuming out the accumulated lint took the longest amount of time,and the dryer continues to work as always.... I hope I don't have any more issues with our appliances,but if I do and I can figure out the problem again,I would use this company again ! Fair price,shipping might've been less,but I fixed it for less than 18.00 total... not bad !
