SOURCE: replacing thermal fuse on dryer
Would need to know what type of unit you have and a model number. On most Kenmore and Whirlpool models they are mounted on the heater box itself. Depending on the type it could be inside the rear panel, or mounted on the floor of the unit. On Frigidaire and other models it mounts to the element case in the rear. Maytags also mount to the element box on the top left inside. Most of the time they have a couple of different looks. On Whirlpool and Kenmore, they have 2 wires running to them, and usually sit away from the thermostat. If its inside the rear panel of these units, it will be towards the top by itself, and could be white or black depending on the age, round or sqaure. On GE, Frigidaire, and their look a likes, it will be small and round, with two wires going to them as well. Most of the time these are metallic in color. Maytags can be black or mettalic, and sit on the sides of the boxes. If this doest help you, please get me the model number and make of unit, and will tell you right where its at. Good Luck!!!!!

SOURCE: NEED TO REPLACE HEATER ELEMENT
You should be able to take off the back panel and see it. The heating element is USUALLY an easy fix. Let me know if you need any further help.

The air flow past the thermal fuse is too hot. The air flow cools the heater coil area. Check the air passages from the lint filter to the heator coil housing for lint balls blocking the flow and letting the area around the fuse get too hot.
