Tip & How-To about Dryers
I often get the question about an electric clothes dryer that is dead, no operation and no lights like the dryer is unplugged from the wall socket If this is a problem you are having no matter the model the issue is with a component called a "Thermal Limiter Fuse". The Fuse is located inside the dryer cabinet and can blow from a shorted electric motor or defective heating element, anything that draws excessive current will blow the fuse for safety reasons to prevent a fire. So if you have the above symptoms check the fuse first. The fuse is located inside the dryer cabinet and varies with each make and model. Below is a picture of the most common Thermal Limiter fuses used in all makes and models of Electric dryers.
