The thermal cut off turns off the heating component when the dryer overheats, ensuring there is a consistent level of heat at all times. This dryer thermal cut-off kit includes one high-limit thermostat with a limit of 250 degrees Fahrenheit, and one thermal cut-off fuse (309 degrees). This kit also includes flat heaters with jumper wires. If your dryer is not starting properly, shutting off too soon or is taking too long to dry your clothes it could be because it has blown and needs to be replaced. This is a genuine OEM part that comes directly from the manufacturer.
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:

First bought the High Limit thermal cut-off and replaced it as it was burnt/ corroded/ and disintegrated. Figured that could be the only problem. Replaced it and still no heat. Further study showed that when the High Limit thermal cut-off failed it caused the thermal fuse (one time, no reset) to fail also. Unfortunately had to buy whole "thermal cut-off kit" to get the thermal fuse (now have an extra high limit thermal cut-off). Would have been cheaper to buy whole kit first time around. Checked everywhere, best price and availability right here at PartSelect. Dryer works great now, probably a 10 minute fix.
I ordered 3 parts one at a time. The fuse was not the problem. The coil was not the problem. It turned out to be the Thermal cut-off. I wasted some time ordering each part seperately, however they came in the mail very quickly. The repairs were very easy thanks to the video instructions. I am able to return the coil since it is not necessary and is still in unused condition. Much easier and cheaper than buying a new dryer. And I love my Dryer!
Found the model number and searched on line for the replacement part. Finally found your site and the part kit which was perfect. 4 days later I am doing the repair and dryer back in service. Thanks!
Read the info' about the possible causes, checked out the Thermal fuse with a multimeter found it had blown. Cleared out debris from the blower wheel and ducting, replaced the themostats and fuse. Dryer started up....should be good for another 5 years!
Ordered all of the thermostats and fuses. Unplugged appliance. Removed back panel. Replaced all items, still did not heat. I removed the 2 screws from the filter housing, and lifted the top. I disconnected the door sensor. I removed the 2 5/16" retaining bolts and removed the front cover, supported the drum and discovered a loose connection on the harness that connects to the drum motor. (Engineered not to heat up unless everything else is functional, including drum rotation.) I reestablished a good connection and buttonned her back up. Now i have spare thermostats.
I replaced the thermistor and the thermostat and it fixed the problem. The recommended parts worked just as advertised. This website is great!!!!!
