The thermal fuse is going to be located on the heating element housing. When you take off the front panel you will see your lint screen housing. You will need to remove that to get to the element housing. Once that's out of the way the thermal fuse should be right on top of the housing. It is small and has two small wires coming off of it. The wires should be different colors. Just don't get it mixed up with the thermostat. Just match it up with the new one that you have. It is held in place with two small screws. Let me know if you have any other questions or still can't find it, also let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad to help out.

One of two ways depending on oh made this unit GE or WPL FIRST look at the top of the door opening for two screws if there is no screws get a flat head screw drive and look with a flash light between the top and front pane you should see a clip about 2 inches from the sides going tworge the middle use a flat screwdriver place in the crack between the top and front panel and hit the back of the screwdriver with you hand should push the clip back an the top pop up do the same onthe other side (before you start if you lent filter goes in the top of the dryer remove the two screws holding that down to remove the front in the side panel going into the front is a screw on both side remove then lift the front up too unclip the bottom clips good luck.
