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!!!!!

either you are pushing the dryer back to far and crushing the exhaust vent hose .your exhaust vent going outside is stopped up , or your low temp thermo will not let the dryer cycle and it is over heating.

Unplug it, remove the back, 1. Hi Limit (small limit upper right hand side of this pic)
the most frequent problem if dryer RUNS but no heat AND you have
checked the element and found it to be good. 2. heater assembly.
3. 250f limit (if bad no heat, timer won't advance)
4. heater element
5. Fuse(350F), if blown(open) the dryer will NOT run.
(if you do not have a meter remove and inspect this heater coil for breaks).
6. control thermostat
7. heater (warms thermostat to shut it down faster for delicates)

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.

Have you tried replacing the operating thermastat it's what shuts it off at the right temp and would cause the thermal fuse to go if it is not shuting.off at the right temp. It happens.
Hope this helps.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If you have already cleaned the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair. It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
