Cabrio Dryer keeps blowing Air Flow fuse?

My Cabrio Dryer is 4 months old. Last week I turned it on, the lights came on, but when I pushed the start button nothing happened. Called for repairman, he came out and replaced some sort of fuse in the back that he says will short out if there is a problem with the Air Flow. So, he replaced the fuse, and I had a company come out and clean my dryer vent. 5 loads of laundry later, the fuse has blown again. Could there be something wrong with the thermostat or something else internal, or did the vent cleaner do a crappy job? Does anyone know where this fuse is, and can my husband replace it?

Hello, yes it is possible that the thermal fuse has gone again. Before attempting any repair yourself please unplug the dryer. The thermal fuse is located in the rear of the dryer the service panel would have to be removed. it is on the hot air duct has 2 wires going to it white in colour about 1 1\2 ' s long and 1\4 " wide. Also locate wear the vent is outside and make sure you have good air flow. good luck

Why would check vent light go on after replacing sensor and computer

Is the dryer vent blocked with lint? If there is a restriction in air flow in the vent system, the dryer will stop. Make sure the vent path is completely clean even in the wall where the vent hose connects.

The thermal fuse on my Whirlpool Cabrio keeps blowing. The exhaust vent is clean and clear, what should i check next after replacing the fuse again?

If you keep blowing the thermal fuse there is a air flow restriction some where disconnect the exhaust at dryer turn on you should have a good air flow exiting machine if not check the blower wheel for lint build up if good the it is in the exhaust exiting the house this is a rarity but the thermistor which cycles heat on/off could be bad hope this helps

How do i Measure the resistance of each thermistor

Dryer getting over heated. Check your exhaust vent for good air flow. Also your operating thermostat could be defective overheating the dryer and blowing your thermal fuse. To check resistance set your multimeter to ohms and connect your leads to thermistor make sure to disconnect the wires from the thermistor.

Dryer turns on and runs but does not heat up or dry clothes. Dryer is Whirlpool Cabrio and only about 6 months old and still under warranty

Check your breaker, by turning FULLY off and back on. Check for good air flow at the rear of the machine, and the same at the exit of the building.....

The dryer won't turn on. The timer still runs. Don't know the name of the part to tryt to get it fixed. It's whatever the button turns on.

Naw it ain't the start switch. that never is the problem unless you have a hothead that punches the thang because it ain't startin. What yall need to do first is remove the dryer venting and look for signs of lint buildup that might cause the air to get too hot in that dryer and make them safety features do they job so that the house don't burn down. Let me elaborate one moment . The dryer has multiple safety features built in just in case yall forget to clean the filter OR over the years lint builds and blocks the airflow to the point that dryer ges overheated due to a restriction in the air flow. The fuse is a skinny white thang mounted on the blower housin. Designed to melt at 350f it is more tolerant than even the limits mounted aboard the heater housing itself! If it blows that means their was a rapid buildup of heat and these dudes was not able to react in time. Yall need to do a thorough cleanup. My dryer was making a racket last week and I took some photos. themobilian_1235.jpgthemobilian_1236.jpgthemobilian_1237.jpgthemobilian_1238.jpgthemobilian_1239.jpgShe was % (a whole hand ) this last weekend. LOL
Where was I? Oh yeah . Unplug the dryer before commencin any repairs and take it outside.
I used zoomspout oil to lube the rollers and idler because it is safe for dryers and heaters.

To recap: Yall gotta clean up that dryer and replace the thermal fuse. Failure to open that filter chute and clean it means keeping on replacing expensive duct fuses.

I have a service manual and some more photos videos HERE
