How do I know when the thermal fuse for my whirlpool deut electric dryer is bad?


Take it out. check it with a multimeter set on ohms. Get a hair dryer turn it on hotest setting. with meter leads on each end of the thermal fuse have someone hold the hair dryer blowing hot air on fuse. It should show continuity through it when cold. After heat is applied it should show 0 or infinity. If its working properly move on to over temp switch.

Inglis Dryer by Whirlpool blows only cold air


check your thermal fuse and your heating element. You'll have to open the back of the dryer, but it's pretty easy to fix.

Kenmore dryer blows cold air. I replaced heat element still no luck? model 96263800


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when an electric dryer stops heating. The heating circuit is not just composed solely by the heating element, it is composed by the thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, motor centrifugal switch, and the timer. The first thing to look at when an electric dryer stops heating is the thermal cut-off. It cuts power to the heating element when it blows most likely due to the failure of the high-limit thermostat. The thermal cut-off must be replaced, together with the high-limit thermostat, if found open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

My kenmore dryer is blowing out cold air


Make sure that both poles of your circuit are live - An electric dryer uses 220 volts to the heating element, but taps into only one pole (110 volt) for the motor that spins the drum. Check your circuit breaker to make sure that neither pole has tripped.

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

Dryer not heating


Answer Did you select an Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature option?
The Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature does not add heat to the dryer. Expect loads dried with the Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature to take longer to dry. Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature can be found on the control knob or button with the other temperature selections.
Has a household fuse blown or has a circuit breaker tripped?
The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric dryers use 2 household fuses or circuit breakers. Replace the fuses or reset the circuit breakers. If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Did you recently install a power supply cord on the dryer?
The power supply cord may be incorrectly installed. Review the Installation Instructions to make sure that the power supply cord is properly installed.

Dryer reset?


NO RESET BUTTON, BUT THERE IS A THERMAL FUSE LOCATED ON THE BACK NEAR THE EXHAUST DUCT. IT IS A SMALL WHITE ITEM WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. CHECK FOR 120 VOLTS AT THE TWO TERMINALS. IF YOU HAVE 120 VOLTS THERE, THE THERMAL FUSE IS BAD. REPLACE FUSE AND CHECK FOR RESTRICTION IN THE AIR FLOW. ALSO, IF YOU HAVE A THERMOMETER THAT CAN MEASURE TEMPS BETWEEN 100 AND 200 DEGREES, CHECK THE TEMP AT THE EXHAUST ONCE THE DRYER IS OPERATING AGAIN. IT SHOULD CYCLE OFF SOMEWHERE AROUND 170 DEGREES. IF IT GOES OVER 200 DEGREES, REPLACE THE CYCLING THERMOSTAT.
