Question about Dryers
Your dryer doesnt have a manual rest. it will have a thermal fuse that will fail if the unit gets too hot.
if you have a top lint filter then the thermal is behind the rear panel.
if it is a front lint filter then it is behind the filter duct.
either way it is white plastic about 1 inch long and has 2 wires on it.
before you replace the thermal, make sure you dont have a plugged vent behind the unit or a clogged bent. either will cause low air flow and the thermal to fail.
