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.

Hotpoint Aquarius TCM570 - This unit is just over 12mths old!!! The heat function has ceased to work, it still spins etc but there is no heat. I've read on a previous posting relating to the same tumble...


Always disconnect power while working on unit....to easy, disconnect the two wires from the fuse, take black electrical tape and tape them together, test dryer if it works then disconnect taped wires and buy fuse install new fuse. Here is a website that should help, Tim:

Kenmore elite , no heat


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
