Thermal Fuse Specifications

The thermal fuse measures the air temperature inside your dryer drum, and turns the heat on and off to maintain the optimal temperature during the drying cycle. If your dryer will not start, dry clothes properly, or produce any heat during the drying cycle, it could be due to a faulty thermal fuse. The original fuse is riveted to the mounting bracket. You will need to take out the rivets to replace it. This replacement fuse comes attached to the bracket. This part is also known as a thermal limiter, or a safety thermostat. Other symptoms linked with a faulty thermal fuse include: the drum is too hot, or the drying cycle ends too quickly. Remember to disconnect the power from your dryer before beginning this installation.

I need to see how to wire a thermal fuse and thermostat and it has blue mark on thermostat part from you all.
For model number 402.89032010
Hi Edward, Thank you for your question. There should be a blue and a black wire attached to the thermal fuse. Before removing the old thermal fuse, make note of how the wires are arranged. The blue wire will be attached to the inside prong and the black wire will be attached to the outside prong. We hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day.

I recently replaced the heating element on my dryer because it was spinning but it wouldn't heat, now it heats but want spin. I think I might have something going on with my belt, I don't know if I installed it back incorrectly. I notice when I reached in to put it back together it seem like its to loose. I'm thinking I'm doing something wrong is my belt suppose to be loose?
For model number DV331AEW/XAA-0000
Hi Vicki, Thank you for the question. No the belt should not be loose.The drum belt attaches to the motor pulley.I suggest opening up the back of the appliance to check the belt did not slip off the pulley during the repair. Hope this helps!

Dryer no longer heating
I pretty much followed the provided videos, but didn't remove the drum. That seemed a bit much. I was able to get the heating element out, and replace the Thermal Fuse and Thermostat. Dryer runs and heats like a top now!
