Question about Whirlpool Dryers
may i ask why you replaced the thermal fuse?
i would check my venting first. that is one of the most common cause of dryers stopping during operation.
do you get any error messages? if you do, it's most likely during overheating.
the reason the start button is buzzing and sparking is the fact that you are shorting the circuit.
can you supply me with the brand and model # please and i will find more information for you.

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.
