The thermal cut-out is located on the side of the heater housing assm. To gain access you need to use a putty knife to depress the two spring clips between the top and the front panel and raise the top. The heater is on the back wall. The part number for the t-stat and thermal cut-out kit is LA-1053 and is about $20.00. Don't forget to clean your vent, and check your blower assm. Either one could have caused the problem.

First off, be sure the pigtail is wired correctly to the back of the unit. Black and red to the outside terminals, white to the middle, green to the frame or cabinet (should be a green screw close-by). If that is ok, you probably have an issue with possibly a bad pigtail, bad outlet, wiring issue, or possibly a bad circuit breaker or breaker box. Probably going to be more of a electrical problem than a appliance problem. Good Luck!!!!

If your dryer is not getting hot, the thermal fuse may be blown. Instead of calling an expensive repairman, you can replace this simple part yourself in less than an hour. Make sure you purchase the correct replacement fuse for your make and model of dryer. Your owner's manual should have a list of compatible part numbers. You may also be able to order a replacement directly from your dryer manufacturer's website.

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.
