Where is the thermal fuse located on this dryer? please


Hello Leslie

I don't know what is the brand of you dryer. I will make you a preference this brand.

In GE dryers, the thermal fuse--sometimes called a safety thermostat--is located behind the drum on the inside of the dryer. To access the thermal fuse you will need to open the dryer from the top. Though it may sound a bit daunting, opening the top of the dryer to reveal its inner workings is surprisingly simple. To open the dryer top you will need a flat-head screwdriver, putty knife or similar tool. Insert the screwdriver or putty knife underneath the dryer's top panel. Slide the putty knife along the bottom of the panel until you locate the two clips that hold it in place. These clips are usually located about four inches in from either side of the top dryer panel. Apply pressure to the clips to release them. Once the clips have been released, lift up the top panel and use the supports to keep it upright. Look inside the dryer, behind the drum, to find what looks like a round metal pan. This metal pan is actually the dryer's heating element housing. The thermal fuse will be located next to the heating element housing. Look for a white strip with two wires connected to it and you've located the thermal fuse in your GE dryer.

Where are fuses located on Whirlpool electric dryer?


Check the internal thermal fuse, which is located within the back panel. The fuse is about an inch long and oval-shaped.

If your dryer is not getting hot, the thermal fuse may be blown. Instead of calling an expensive repairman, you can replace this simple part yourself in less than an hour. Make sure you purchase the correct replacement fuse for your make and model of dryer. Your owner's manual should have a list of compatible part numbers. You may also be able to order a replacement directly from your dryer manufacturer's website.

Things You'll Need

  • Hex nut screwdriver
  • Replacement thermal fuse
    • 1 Disconnect the dryer from the electrical outlet. Remove the dryer vent from the back of the dryer by loosening the retaining screw on the clamp attaching the vent to the dryer's exhaust port and sliding the vent off of the port.
    • 2 Remove the hex nuts holding the dryer's rear panel in place. Slide the panel off to the side of the dryer. Locate the thermal fuse on the heating element housing on the right side of the dryer. The fuse is an oval-shaped part located near the top of the housing.
    • 3 Slide the thermal fuse wires off of the contact terminals on the fuse. Remove the hex nut holding the fuse in place and remove the old fuse.
    • 4 Place a new fuse on the housing and replace the hex nut. Reconnect the thermal fuse wires. Replace the dryer's rear panel and plug the dryer back into the electrical outlet.

Blowing cold air


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You either need a thermal fuse and or gas valve coils, both are 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 two wires and replace the thermal fuse. Now, if this don't solve the problem you will need a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

Not getting hot


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs a thermal fuse and or gas valve coils, and maybe an igniter all three are 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. Now, if this don't solve the problem you will need a gas valve coil kit.

It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new, if it doesn't then you will need to check the igniter. The igniter is attached to the end of the burner assymbly by one screw and a simple two wire plug. Inspect for breakage, and replace if needed. Happy to help, Tim.

It is a gas dryer and I have had a tech out twice to replace a part to make it heat up and now it is doing the same thime again (not heating up).


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 solution is simple. It sounds like your dryer is working properly, and your actual problem is a blockage somewhere in your 4 inch exhaust tubing. Check it and make sure it is not clogged up with excessive lint. Also if your tubing is clear you need to check your connection where it travels thru the wall etc. It would be a good idea to find the actual location where it exits to the ouside and check for good airflow. If you have poor or no airflow this is why your thermal fuse has blown out. Poor venting of dryer causes overheating and therefore blowes the thermal fuse. I Hope I have helped you, Tim.
