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!!!!!

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 at the right temp. It happens.
Hope this helps.

Samsung Dryer dv203aes/xac will not heat. Drum is rotating and lint was cleared from exhaust.

Check the following:
1. Does it have 220 volts (yes it runs, but dryers run on 110 volts)?
2. Check the heating element and the safety thermostats located on the heat element canister. Low air flow from any restriction like lint build up or mashed ducting or blocked air exhaust vent cap can either trip the safety stats or burn out the element. Clean dryer and exhaust ducting thoroughly and replace bad parts before placing back in service. Poor air flow is the number one problem with "No Heat" dryer issues.

My Samsung electric dryer runs but doesn't get hot

Clothes dryers usually have one of three issues when they fail to heat.
Taking a good electrical meter ( with ohms readings), check first the heating element.
If it checks good, then try all of the thermostats and the fuse. (There may be as many as 5 thermostats.)
You will need to unplug the wires off of each of these items that you are testing before you test them.
Whilst you are looking, be sure to test the two hot leads from the circuit breaker box, because one of the two hot lugs is for the machine operation, one is for the heating element.
God bless your efforts.

No heat model dv665jw/xac

Element or thermal trip on element, you will need to test them with a meter, as to which one, But if thermal trip gone, why, could be element on way out.

My dryer stucks at 1 minute and runs forever

I have the same problem with my Samsung electric dryer DV339AEG/XAC. It stuck at 1min cooling forever even though the clothes were completely dried.

I solved the problem after researching online. The heating coil inside the heating element was touching the metal casing. The ceramic insulation was not holding the coil in place in one of the sections, and the coil touched the casing at that point.

I repositioned the coil to allow better separation which essentially moved the coil further away from the casing. Once that's done, the dryer can count down passed the 1 min mark and automatically end the drying cycle, as expected.

No need to change PCB, or humidity sensor, etc.

I tested it before and after the repair using an ohm meter. The resistance across the terminals of the heating element should be approx 10 ohms but no connectivity to the casing. Before the repair, it was reading 5 ohms between 1 of the terminals and the casing. Same reading for the other terminal. Once fixed, neither terminal registered any reading on the ohm meter with the casing, the way it should be.

Make sure you unplugged the dryer from wall outlet before servicing it. A certified repairman should know what I was talking about.

Good luck.

Samsung dryer not heating

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. To determine if the heating element is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) To determine if the thermal fuse has blown out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page.

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.

Samsung dryer blowing thermostats, constantly

you may need to replace both thermal fuses and or the heating element itself but check to make sure you have the proper temp rating for the thermal fuses
