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?

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:

My dryer will start drying the clothes, but then after a few minutes, the heating stops. All the controls work - but the dryer seems to be only blowing room temperature air. I have cleaned the duct inside the dryer, and through the duct from the dryer to outside. I read that if the fuse was blown that the dryer would not start. Except for lack of heat throughout the cycle, the dryer thinks it is working just fine. What is my next step?

Vickie for model number GGW9250PW1
October 4, 2017
Answer:

Hi Vickie, Thank you for the question. Normally with the Thermal Fuse the dryer would still run as normally but there will be no heat. So you would still have the appliance start and tumble but blow cold or room temperature air. If the fuse blows it just stops electricity going to the element its self not the appliance. Hope this helps!

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
July 20, 2017
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!

Dave for model number LEQ9858PW1
August 15, 2017
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 is the thermal fuse located

Pete for model number WED9750WW0
August 29, 2017
Answer:

Hi Pete, That's a great question. The thermal fuse is located on the blower fan housing. To get to that part you will need a few tools: a hex socket, a putty knife, a flat head screwdriver, and also a phillips screwdriver. Please make sure to disconnect power to your appliance before ever attempting any repair. First you will want to remove the top panel screws. Place your top panel safely out of the way. Then take a look at your control panel. Press in the tabs on either side to pop it out of place. Disconnect the wire harness and then remove the screws to be able to move your circuit board bracket out of the way. Then remove the screws on the control bracket up front. Now you will want to remove the screws from the lower panel at the bottom of your machine. You can just lift that part right out. After that you will want to disconnect the moisture sensor and door switch wire harnesses. One set of wires should be yellow while the other set are brown, white, and blue. Then you will want to remove the screws at the bottom and top of your front panel. There are two mounting screws on the inside of your door panel. There are on either side of the filter. Remove those as well to be able to pull off the front panel. You will then remove the lower bulkhead screws and only loose the top screws. Don't take those ones off fully. Also remove the screw holding the blower housing in place as well. Then lift the bulkhead off the top screws and set it aside. After that you will remove the dryer belt from the motor pulley and pulley. I would suggest taking a picture of how the belt is installed on your appliance. So that you can reinstall it the same way. Use the belt to help you lift out the drum. Now you will have access to the thermal fuse inside of your machine. You can remove that part by unplugging it and removing the screw. To get your drum back into place, align its rim with the two rear rollers. Then follows these steps backwards and you will be able to put your machine b

My dryer is not heating but still runs. Checked the thermal fuse and its not that.What else could it be?

MARGARET for model number MEDX700XW0
October 16, 2017
Answer:

Hi Margaret, Thank you for the question. If the Thermal Fuse has tested to be good, I suggest checking the High Limit Thermostat,PartSelect Number PS11741456.This hi-limit thermostat acts as as 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. When defective it will not send power to the element in order for it to heat up to dry the clothes. Hope this helps!

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?

Where to find and how to replace thermal cutoff

Krtystyna for model number LGR8648PQ0
August 14, 2017
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!

Hello James, thank you for contacting us. It is possible that one of the thermostats is faulty giving bad readings to the control board. These can cause the dryer to not produce any heat or very little. Also it could be the heating element, these can be tested with a multi-meter to determine which is at fault. Hope this helps!

If my dryer is running as it should but not heating is it my heating element?

Larry for model number GEW9250PW1
November 28, 2017
Answer:

Hi Larry, Thank you for the question. In most cases you will be able to see burn marks or damage tot he coil on the element if it has burnt out. I suggest testing the High Limit Thermostat and Thermal Fuse Kit,PartSelect Number PS334387.The thermostat acts as a safety mechanism that keeps the dryer from overheating and the fuse is like a backup system - it's set to trip at a higher temperature than the thermostat. Once it trips, it has to be replaced. If these parts are bad you will also want to check the Vent tube leading outside to make sure there is no blockage. It is warm in there and critters will make their homes inside the vent and cause the dryer to over heat. Hope this helps!

Hi Greg, Thank you for the question, I suggest you replace the Thermostat, Internal-Bias, This part controls the temperature of the inside of the dryer drum and prevents the dryer from overheating. We also suggest you replace the Thermal Fuse, 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(too hot) and if the thermostat is defective it can trip the fuse. Good luck with the repair!

Question:

Hello, my husband removed the heating element of our Whirlpool 24 inch front loading dryer, once it stopped heating. It looked a bit scorched. The dryer still works, (obviously, without heat). Should we change the thermostat and cycling thermostat, along with the heating element? Also, i am unable to find a thermal fuse listed anywhere on any of the parts diagrams for this model. Does it not need one? What about a high limit thermostat? Thanks for your assist. Michelle

Michelle for model number LEW0050PQ2
February 5, 2018
Answer:

Hello Michelle, thank you for your question. You can check the thermostats before ordering, by using a multi-meter to see if the thermostats have continuity. Set your multi meter to the R X 1 setting. Take each of your meter's probes and touch one to each terminal. You are testing for continuity, and you should receive a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, testing the thermostat should produce a reading of zero. But if a thermostat is tested when it is heated to its limit, a reading of infinity should be produced. We strongly recommend that you test your thermostat at room temperature. If the test you conduct with your thermostat does not produce these results, then you should replace the component. According to your model information, there is no thermal fuse on your appliance. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Donna for model number 110.66002010
August 24, 2017
Answer:

Hi Donna, Thank you for your question. Sometimes unplugging the appliance for about five minutes and then plugging it back in will reset your appliance and the buzzer will continue to work. However a technician is normally required to verify which part is actually causing your issue, as there are multiple tests that they would have to perform on your appliance. I hope this helps. Good luck with your repair.

Hi Scott, Thank you for your question. If your dryer is leaking then either the exhaust system is clogged or it is not venting correctly. Both of these issues can cause condensation to form and cause it to leak from the drum. You will need to check your venting system to make sure it is venting properly and that it is not clogged.

Donna for model number LER4634EZ2
August 1, 2018
Answer:

Hi Donna, Thank you for the email. When the dryer is over heating, it is best to replace both parts in the Thermal Cut-Off Kit, PartSelect #: PS334299. 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). One one of the parts blow it will blow the other in the process, so both need to be replaced together. Hope this helps!

patrick for model number gew9200ll1
August 2, 2018
Answer:

Hello Patrick, thank you for your question. The e2 code is in reference to an thermistor or thermostat failure. Check the thermistor with an Ohm meter, if it reads >50k Ohms or less than 500 Ohms it is defective. Also check the heating element to be sure it has continuity. And check the airflow through the dryer and out through the exhaust to be sure there isn't an obstruction. I hope this helps!

If the unit is not starting at all, I would recommend replacing the Thermostat, Internal-Bias Part Number: WP3387134 first, and anytime this part is replaced, the Thermal Fuse Part Number: WP3392519 should be replaced as well. I hope this helps!

Question:

The dryer will run for for a short time and cut off. It will run longer on the low heat cycle or air fluff. I have to wait several minutes for it to cool down before it will restart. I pulled the vent hose off the back and it ran for even shorter time. Is it the thermal fuse?

Heather for model number RED4640YQ1

Answer:

Hi Heather, Thank you for your question. If the dryer is shutting off too soon, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which ones are causing the issue. You will need to check the thermal fuse, the internal bias thermostat, the thermal cut-off, the drive motor with pulley, the high limit thermostat, the door switch and the belt. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Gas shuts down after 7 minutes. The thermostat is good, the igniter is new, the thermos fuse it good. Would it still ignite if the gas coils were bad?

Craig for model number 11072802100

Answer:

Hello Craig, thank you for your question. Yes, the unit could still light if the coils were bad. If the igniter is new, and the thermo fuse and thermostat are good you should test the coils and radiant flame sensor. the coils can be tested using a multi-meter tool. The 2-prong coil read 1,000-1,300 ohms. The 3-prong coil will read 1,300-1,400 ohms across prongs 1 and 2, and 500-600 ohms across prongs 1 and 3. You can test your sensor with a multi-meter to see if it is still working. First you will have to disconnect the power to your appliance and then remove the sensor. Second you will set your multi-meter to the lowest setting and then calibrate it to show zero. Take each probe of your meter and touch one to each of the prongs on your sensor. If the meter continues to show zero or infinite ohms, your sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. I hope this helps!

Sheila for model number Wed8300sw2

Answer:

Hello Sheila, thank you for your question. The F1 code on a Whirlpool dryer is usually in reference to the Electronic Control Board Part Number: PS11748354. Try unplugging the unit and leaving it for 5 minutes. If the code comes on again after the unit is plugged back in, I would recommend replacing the main electronic control board. I hope this helps!

GLENN for model number GEW9260PL0
April 30, 2018
Answer:

Hello Glenn, thank you for your question. If the unit is not starting when the start button is pushed, the first parts I would recommend testing, or replacing are the Thermal Fuse Part Number: WP3392519 and Thermostat, Internal-Bias Part Number: WP8577274. It sounds like the unit overheated, and blew the fuse. It is usually a good idea to test all thermostats in the appliance with a multimeter (you're testing for continuity) to see if there are any other issues. Sometimes more than one thermostat will blow when an appliance overheats. I hope this helps!

Answer:

Hi Maria, Thank you for your question. You can test the part to be sure. You would need a multi meter for that. I would actually suggest testing all of your thermostats and thermal fuses. Either one of those parts could stop your appliance from starting. They should read 0 ohms to be working correctly. That would be the first place to start. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

DAVID for model number NED4600YQ1

Answer:

Hello David, thank you for your inquiry. The first parts you will want to check are Thermal Cut-Off Kit Part Number: 279816 and Thermostat, Internal-Bias Part Number: WP3387134 and fuse part number WP3392519. These parts are easily checked with a multimeter. To test these parts, set your multimeter to the R X 1 setting. Take each of your meter's probes and touch one to each terminal. You are testing for continuity, and you should receive a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, testing the thermostat should produce a reading of zero. But if a thermostat is tested when it is heated to its limit, a reading of infinity should be produced. We strongly recommend that you test your thermostat at room temperature.

Hello Kristi, Thanks for your question. The thermal fuse could be a cause for your issue, along with the cycling thermostat, high limit thermostat, and/or the thermistor. All of these parts can be tested with a multimeter to see if they have continuity - replace any that do not have continuity. Check the exhaust venting as well to see if the vent is clogged. I hope this helps.

Question:

My dryer is running fine but there is no heat and the cycle timer counts down but it does not turn off. Can it be caused by the thermal fuse or are more parts involved?

Kerry Ann for model number REX3615EW1
March 3, 2018
Answer:

Hello Kerry Ann, Thanks for your question. Yes, the thermal fuse could be causing both of those issues. Test it with a multimeter to see if it has electrical continuity and replace it if it shows no continuity. You may also want to test the heating element, and the thermal cut-off kit. I hope this helps.

Answer:

Hi Danny, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the Door Switch Assembly, PartSelect Number PS11741700. When the switch is pressed in, like the door is closed, it should read closed for continuity. When open, it should read open. The light part of the switch will be the opposite. Hope this helps!

Question:

I stopped the dryer mid cycle to change out the load to dry another load. Probably 10mins left on the cycle, put the new load in and it wouldn't turn on. The dryer heats up just fine and dries in 1 cycle prior to this. I am thinking push to start button switch might be bad? Thanks

Rich for model number EED4400SQ0
February 21, 2018
Answer:

Hello Rich, thank you for your question. It sounds like the fuse may have blown. Alot of times, dryer issues are "air flow" problems. First, open up the dryer and clean and dust or debris from around the heater, tumber, motor, ducting, ect. While you're in there, you can check the fuse Thermal Fuse Part Number: WP3392519 and Thermostat, Internal-Bias Part Number: WP3387134. These parts should be changed out at the same time. If the fuse is blown, it is a good indicator that the bias thermostat was tripped and both would have to be replaced. You may also want to check the Switch, Push-To-Start Part Number: WP3977456 as well as the Door Switch - 3 Wire Part Number: WP3406107. All of these parts can be tested with a multimeter. I hope this helps!

Question:

Hello my dryer is spinning but i get little to no heat. I have a peep hole on the front bottom left side that allows me to see the heat element. While the dryer is running i notice that i hear a quit humming sound and my igniter glows but the gas does not ignite then the glow goes out and the hum stops. This process repeats every 30 seconds to a minute. So it seems like it wants to light but does not. Can you please tell me which part i need to correct this problem. Thank you.

MICHAEL for model number LGQ9558KQ1
February 20, 2018
Answer:

Hello Michael, thank you for your question. There are a few parts that can cause this issue. I would recommend testing the Igniter, that is the most likely problem. I would also suggest checking your thermostats, your thermal fuse, and your radiant flame sensor. You will need a Multi Meter to test the parts to determine what the defective part is. I hope this helps!

I’m how can i check that the thermal fuse is bad

Jeff for model number 11086870100
January 17, 2018
Answer:

Hi Jeff, Thank you for your question. To verify if a thermal fuse is bad, you will need to use a multimeter. Turn the control dial to set the multimeter to read Rx1 resistance. Touch the left multimeter lead to the left side of the thermal fuse and touch the right multimeter lead to the right side of the fuse. Keep an eye on the multimeter needle. If the needle fails to move the fuse has blown and you will need to replace it. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Our dryer stopped heating yesterday and we aren’t sure exactly which part would need to be replaced. We took the front panel under the door off and the blower works, but there’s no Flame. Usually when the dryer powers on there’s a click sound when the Flame comes on to begin the heating process, but there isn’t a click sound at all which means no Flame, no heat. Any ideas to which part could be faulty?

I have replaced the thermal fuse multiple times. I have replace the entire dryer exhaust and lint trap all the way through the machine. I have tested the fuse each time to ensure that it was actually the fuse that blew. I have checked each wire that connects the fuse and they are good. I have inspected the cord and the plug to the dryer. I have inspected this circuit at the breaker box. What is it that keeps blowing this fuse? Its very frustrating.

Jerry for model number KEYS750GQ0
December 26, 2017
Answer:

Hi Jerry, Thank you for your question. You would have to test this part with a multi meter to be able to eliminate it as your issue. We have answered a similar questions before: "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.". If that part is fine you will want to check your other thermostats and the thermal fuse directly on your heating element. Then you should check your heating element itself. You should also check your door switch as well if all of those other parts are fine. Good luck with your repair.

Answer:

Hi CC, Thank you for your question. There are many parts that could cause an issue like this, however all you will need is a multi meter to test them all to see which one is causing the issue for you. You should check your thermostats and your thermal fuses. Then check your igniter, radiant flame sensor, and your m series coils. Those would be the most likely parts that would cause this issue. Another part you could check is your door lock as well. Sometimes if that part is malfunctioning it will not allow your appliance to heat because it thinks the door is open. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Dryer was working, but no heat.
First I unplugged the dryer, then removed the back panel, this exposed most all of the wiring and I could see the heater coils.
Not knowing what the problem was I started looking at the coils and could not see any broken parts.
So then checked the thermal fuse for continuity I removed the two wires from it with a small pair of needle nose pliers, it was held in place by two screws, once they were removed the fuse came out easily, I checked continuity with a volt meter placing the meter on X1 Ohms and could not get a reading.
I replaced with a new one and put it all back together the way I took it apart.
Then I plugged it in and it worked first time, I now have warm dry clothes.

No heat but would run otherwise
Cleaning the lint out of the whole machine took quite a bit of time--it was everywhere. Underneath the lint trap was a collection that ultimately ruined the thermal fuse where it restricted the air flow considerably.

Ascertaining the problem was the most time consuming part.

The actual repair was quite simple and didn't take but 15-20 minutes.

Gas dryer not heating up.
First removed front and drum to check gas valve and igniter. No gas, no ignition. Checked power to devices; none (check hot line to ground, not to neutral.). Removed back of control panel looking for a relay or something. Found none, but did find a wiring diagram. That is where the site really came in handy. Studied wiring diagram together with the exploded view and pictures of each part to come up with a troubleshooting plan. Took the back off as well as a cover inside. Tested each part with meter, again going to ground and not across the device. Of course, the final device before the gas valve, a one time thermal fuse, was the bad part. At first assumed just a bad part. Later wondered if fuse did it's job and another part was bad. Ordered and installed new thermostat just in case. Put everything together after a complete cleaning and everything is fine so far. Not a particularly hard job because I had the wiring diagram and access to parts select site. Would have been much harder without them. Took a long time because almost the entire dryer had to come apart. But it got a good cleaning because of it and found a couple of bucks in change to help offset the cost. Can't imagine what a service call would have cost.

No heat. Dryer keeps running but no heat to dry clothes.
Repair was very easy. We are in the internet age so I use it all the time to get info on how to repair any thing in the house including cars. This time it was my dryer. I typed up 'Kitchen Aid dryer has not heat'and pressed searched and PartSelect came up. Typed in the model number and looked up the comments on No Heat. They had pretty cool site that shows videos on how to repair this things too. Came to conlclusion that the THERMAL FUSE was the main problem. Ordered it and as well as the Igniter assy just to make sure and as well as save on the shipping just in case. Ordered on Sunday night and the shipped the next day. It arrived on Tuesday. Unfortunately had a little problem on the shipment. Called PartSelect and they are so awesome they shipped me new parts asap at no extra charge. Awesome Awesome! Parts came in Thursday and first installed the Thermal Fuse and BAAAM! problem solved. Did not need the igniter assembly. Now I have an extra part in storage.
To replace the Thermal fuse.
1. Disconnect Dryer from power outlet. Remove the bolts on the back panel with a 1/4" socket. I used power drill because it is much faster.
2. Locate the Thermal Fuse. Disconnect wires and remove the bolt. Slide it up and pull. Install the new one and reconnect the wires. Replace the panel and plug the dryer.

That solved my problem. It should solve yours too. The whole process was less than five minutes.

Dryer overheated, blew out thermal fuse
I started to repair this and got busy and ended up calling a repair service -- that was the first time. They repaired it for over $200 and said the cause was bad venting. I fixed the vent before using the fixed dryer but it blew again. So I ordered these parts and replaced them myself for a lot of savings. However, the dryer still overheated. Through lots of testing I found the root cause the repairman missed: The heating element had gotten so hot that the assembly holding it warped, hitting the element and shorting it. So a new element is on order. I still needed the parts I ordered here but the overall repair ended up more complicated and expensive. I was disappointed a paid repair person left without further diagnosis. If he had unplugged the vent and checked the heat on the exhaust vent (as I ended up doing) it would have been obvious more than a new thermal fuse/thermistor was necessary. Instead I wasted over $200 on his visit. So my advice is if you're at all handy, repair this yourself. The dryer has a service manual inside the front toe board that walks you through most diagnostics and tests. However, it took a little more than that for me to discover the heating element problem. This was a very dangerous situation that could have easily led to a fire, yet not found by a trained technician!

Dryer wouldn't heat
I first unplugged the electrical plug, then opened up the dryer, front and back. Once I had diagnosed the problem I unscrewed the thermal fuses and thermostat. Marked which color wire went to which connector and continued to replace one wire at a time. Re-attached the mounting screws, verified all wires were connected, plugged in dryer to test heat cycle. Once the dryer worked correctly I vacuumed all lint and covered it up.

Dryer wouldn't turn on.
When my dryer suddenly stopped functioning, without any prior signs of pending failure, I guessed that it had to be something simple, like a fuse. I did a google search and stumbled across a forum post that described the symptoms (wouldn't turn on), and the poster said that Whirlpool recommends replacing the thermostat whenever the fuse is replaced. The reason for this is that the likely cause of the fuse burning is that the thermostat is no longer properly regulating the temperature range of the heating element.

I disconnected the power source, and then I removed the back cover, and both parts were in plain view, so I simply replaced the wires one by one.

Thermal fuse blown
I spent nearly an hour trying to self-diagnose the problem before I wised up and found PartSelect.com. After reading just a couple of postings I went back and tested the thermal fuse. It was bad. Other posts suggested I replace the thermostat at the same time, so I ordered both. The parts arrived within three days and the actual repair took less than 10 minutes.

No heat
First, I replaced the heating element which was super easy but I still didn't have heat - frustrating! I then ordered the thermal cut-off kit and thermal fuse. I replaced the thermal fuse and still no heat. Then, I took one of the fuses from the kit and replaced that and finally got heat. There was another fuse in this kit that I still don't know where it goes but right now I don't need it. Had I known (by a volt tester) this would have been super easy to fix, but I didn't have one so it was trial and error. I did find out, however, that if the heating element goes it usually takes the fuse with it. The fuse I replaced (that finally gave me heat) was located in the casing just above the element. I hope this helps!

Dryer running but not heating
Popped open rear access panel and logged on to website. Performed search for "dryer not heating" and came across helpful tips and ordered all components pertaining to heating system and removed and replaced them. Working better than better and saved myself hundreds of dollars. Highly recommend for those "do it yourselfers"!

No heat - everything else was functional
After 30 miutes of research on this website I felt confident to investigate the problem. Removal of the back cover is straightforward. Initially I did not appreciate and obstruction of the ductwork exitting the dryer. I bypassed the thermal fuse by removing the wires and temporarily taping them together and heat was restored. Knowing flow was OK exitting the dryer I investigated flow from the lint trap to the blower motor which is where the problem was located. In our case the lint filter was torn allowing many small objects and lint to near completely clog the pathway between the lint trap and the blower motor. It was difficult to appreaciate how obstructed that pathway was without removing the entire channel from the machine which was simple and required removing two screws at the lint trap opening followed by 3-4 screws on the back of the channel. Once removed, it was easy to appreaciate the debris clogging the channel and was easy to clean with a hose and running water. Replacement was a snap. The parts were oredered and sent in a day. I prophylactically replaced thermastats based upon a recommendation from another website. Replacing previous parts with new parts was a snap. Out the door we were up and running for around $100 (including new thermostats). The dryer repair man may go the way of the dinosaur.

Dryer motor would not turn on
After looking at the schematic to see what was in line with the motor, I found the fuse as the first item. I pulled the fuse out and used a multimeter to ohm out the fuse. Upon using the meter I found that the fuse was bad. I typed into Google my part number that was on the fuse and the PartSelect Website came up as one of the choices to pick from. When the part arrived approx. two days later I installed the fuse by first unplugging the dryer and then removing the bottom panel and removing the fuse from the exhaust by using a small 1/4 inch wrench and pulling out the old fuse. I installed the wires on the new fuse and re-installed and put the 1/4 inch screw back in. I started the dryer after plugging it back in and it worked like it should have. Thank you for the part and I have recommended your website to other people already.

No power
My 14 year old son did it as I supervised! Pulled the dryer out on a dolly, unpluged the dyer, removed 9 hex head screws to remove the back cover, removed and replaced the thermal fuse, located next to the exhust outlet, set the cover back on, moved the dryer back in with the dolly. I had the thermal fuse over nighted to me for a total price of $35, figured I saved at least $150 on a service call by Whirpool.
