Dryer Thermal Fuse
PartSelect Number PS11741460
Manufacturer Part Number WP3392519
This thermal fuse is used in dryers as a safety mechanism that stops the flow of electricity to the motor circuit when a dryer overheats. This replacement part features two 3/16 inch terminals, and is sold individually. 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. 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.

The high limit kit comes with three separate thermal fuses for dryers. One electric thermal fuse with a limit of 258, one gas high limit at 240, and one gas and electric high limit thermostat with a limit at 300. The thermal fuse kit shuts off the motor in the dryer when it begins to overheat.

Thermal Cut-Off with High Limit Thermostat
PartSelect Number PS991443
Manufacturer Part Number 280148
The thermal cut-off (fuse) is meant to trip at a higher temperature than that of a high limit thermostat. This is a one time use fuse, so when it does trip, you must replace it. The hi-limit thermostat acts as a safety mechanism that keeps the dryer from overheating. Once the dryer temperature reaches a certain point, this piece will shut down power to the heating element.

Thermal Fuse with Bracket
PartSelect Number PS11741829
Manufacturer Part Number WP35001193
This part is the replacement thermal fuse for your dryer. When you order this part, you will receive the fuse itself, as well as the bracket that mounts it to the dryer. The thermal fuse is approximately 2 inches wide from end to end. It is a safety device inside the dryer that shorts out if the dryer overheats. When the fuse shorts out, the dryer will function properly. You can test your thermal fuse for continuity using a multimeter. Be sure to disconnect your dryer from the power source before you begin this repair. This part is sold individually and is an OEM part sourced directly from the manufacturer.
