Take top off and thermal fuse is clipped onto the dryer manifold.
how do you know you need one if you can't find the original and test it?

Maytag Neptune stackable washer/dryer dryer not heating up?

check house braker, element, thermal fuse, thermostats, wires and connections including to the motor as the motor switch acts on the element. if all is good your electronic board should be the problem.. a local part dealer will usually help you in testing your parts if you dont have a multimeter..

Amana dryer model YNED7200TW will not start. there is power, but start button does nothing. Resetting breaker did not work. Any ideas?

Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)

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.

Glow bar not turning on- replaced and same problem.

Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim. And please don't forget to give me your rating for my help. Thanks

Dryer follow up

I don't know if I was the one to answer your question before but I will be happy to help you. I am not too sure of where your thermal fuse is as I don't know what type of dryer you have. If it's like the one in the picture that I see I would say that your thermal fuse is in the front. There should be a front panel that you can remove and the thermal fuse is located on the heating element housing. You can purchase one at your local appliance repair shop and if you don't have one of those you can get one on line. You might even be able to get on from Sears Home Repair Service if you call them. They may be able to sell you one from their trucks. If it is on the back though you will need to remove the back panel. I can't suggest how to do it as I don't know what your set up looks like. You would have to do whatever you needed though to get to the back if that is where the thermal fuse is located. Check the front first though to see if it is there, chances are that it is. It will be a small little fuse with two wires coming off of it. It is held down with two screws. It is rectangle in shape too. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. If you do have any other questions just respond from this message here, that way I will get the message. Good luck.

Whirlpool dryer

First make sure you have power to the unit through the plug. If power is present, then you most likely have an open Thermal Safety Fuse. The Thermal is a Safety feature that shuts off the power to the Heat Element in the event the Blower is not blowing or the Lint Vent becomes clogged not allowing air to flow over the Heat Element. NO air flow, Heat Element over heats, Thermal Safety Fuse opens, power shuts off. If the Thermal Safety Fuse is open find out why. Was the blower not working? Was the Lint Filter clogged? ( Lint Filter should be cleaned after each use to assure continued air flow.) Was Lint Vent Clogged? This is the Vent Hose that goes from the Dryer to the outside of your house. It should be checked for free air movement. The next thing-- Could be a defective Timer or Control Module.
Find where you lost power and WHY!!
