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

We looked on line to see what possible cause of it not running. It said usually the first thing to go was the thermal fuse and it showed exactly where it was located on the dryer and when it arrived it took just a couple of minutes to install. It worked and was so easy.

Dryer has no heat

Check the easy stuff 1st. The popular replacement parts on Kenmore dryer are Thermal Fuse & Thermostat. Check these components with an ohm meter for continuity. If the meter doesn't move, it means it is bad. The Thermal Fuse (#39 on diagram) & Thermostat ( #34) have 2 terminals. The Thermostat Internal Bias (#41) has 4 terminals - check 2 opposite terminals at a time with the meter. 1 set has a reading & the other doesn't. If you don't get reading at all, then it is bad. These parts are at the back of the dryer. I have a bad Thermal Fuse.

1) Unplug dryer.
2) Move dryer away from the wall for access to the back.
3) Remove screws on Rear Panel & the little cover with 1/4" driver.
4) Remove panel & cover.
5) Item #39 & 41 are on the left next to the Lint Chute Assy. #34 is on the right next to Heater Box (Follow the electrical wires). Remove 1 of 2 terminal wires to test the component. You may need to use pliers to assist.
6) Remove screws to replace component.
7) Do the reverse to put things back.

Make sure to vacuum all lint or dust. While you are at it, remove the control panel back cover to vacuum inside, especially the little circuit board & all wire terminals to keep things from shorting out later.

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.
