I don't know if I was the one to answer your question before but I will be happy to help you. I am not too sure of where your thermal fuse is as I don't know what type of dryer you have. If it's like the one in the picture that I see I would say that your thermal fuse is in the front. There should be a front panel that you can remove and the thermal fuse is located on the heating element housing. You can purchase one at your local appliance repair shop and if you don't have one of those you can get one on line. You might even be able to get on from Sears Home Repair Service if you call them. They may be able to sell you one from their trucks. If it is on the back though you will need to remove the back panel. I can't suggest how to do it as I don't know what your set up looks like. You would have to do whatever you needed though to get to the back if that is where the thermal fuse is located. Check the front first though to see if it is there, chances are that it is. It will be a small little fuse with two wires coming off of it. It is held down with two screws. It is rectangle in shape too. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. If you do have any other questions just respond from this message here, that way I will get the message. Good luck.

Stackable kenmore dryer wont heat


If the dryer runs, then the 240 volt supply should be okay. If the dryer doesn't run, then the L2 leg of voltage could be missing. You would need to check the voltage at the outlet using the third image below if this is the case. You should only make this live voltage check at the outlet if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. If the outlet is bad, it will need to be repaired by an electrician.

You could have a blown thermal fuse in the dryer that will prevent it from heating. . Unplug the dryer and access this fuse by following the procedure in the first image. The thermal fuse should be on the back of the blower housing. I will likely have black and red wires attached to it. To check this fuse, pull the wires off (with the dryer still unplugged) and measure the resistance across the leads of the fuse. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (continuity). If you measure infinite resistance (open) then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced.

I have a Kenmore Dryer, Model 96292110. It runs, but it does not heat the air. I have checked the circuit breakers. They are fine.


Hello,

If your Maytag dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers,thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F.

Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Maytag dryer is easier than it sounds.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed.
  • Screwdriver,Towel,Electrical tape,Replacement thermal fuse, if necessary.
1 Clean out thelint screen in your Maytag clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryerto overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer'sheating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and washit in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.

2 Look behindthe dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions.Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lintthat has built up.

3 Go outside andcheck your Maytag dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, birdnests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger yourdryer's thermal fuse.

4 Disconnectyour dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.

5 Access the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer byremoving the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in placeand it should easily come free.

6 Look betweenthe dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermalfuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wiresconnected to it.

7 Bypass the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer whileyou perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together thetwo wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it backin. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start."If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermalfuse needs to be replaced.

8 Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer.Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape thatyou used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from thethermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer anddiscard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing andtightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

Thanks for using fixya.

Where are fuses located on Whirlpool electric dryer?


Check the internal thermal fuse, which is located within the back panel. The fuse is about an inch long and oval-shaped.

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.

Things You'll Need

  • Hex nut screwdriver
  • Replacement thermal fuse
    • 1 Disconnect the dryer from the electrical outlet. Remove the dryer vent from the back of the dryer by loosening the retaining screw on the clamp attaching the vent to the dryer's exhaust port and sliding the vent off of the port.
    • 2 Remove the hex nuts holding the dryer's rear panel in place. Slide the panel off to the side of the dryer. Locate the thermal fuse on the heating element housing on the right side of the dryer. The fuse is an oval-shaped part located near the top of the housing.
    • 3 Slide the thermal fuse wires off of the contact terminals on the fuse. Remove the hex nut holding the fuse in place and remove the old fuse.
    • 4 Place a new fuse on the housing and replace the hex nut. Reconnect the thermal fuse wires. Replace the dryer's rear panel and plug the dryer back into the electrical outlet.

Thermal fuse on a pye2300 electric dryer


The thermal fuse and thermostat are under the top cover, in the rear, on top and right side of the heating element box.
To get to it, If I remember correctly, you need to:
  1. remove the front panel (the panel with door attached to it) If there are no screws on it 3-4" from the bottom It should be on clips underneath. If you see 2 screws - remove them., otherwise it pops off with screwdriver inserted between the cover and the dryer body.
  2. you'll see 2 screws, holding the top cover. Remove. Lift cover. Your parts are under that cover in the back. Make sure to install the correct thermal fuse from the kit (read enclosed manual). Enjoy ;)
PS If you still need the thermal fuse for your dryer - I'd be thankful if you buy it here . Use coupon "New10" for 10% off

How do I know which thermal unit is the one that shuts the dryer off when the clothes are dry? one's called a cycling thermostat, another is called a fixed thermostat and the third is called thermal...


Usually the Fixed Thermostat (also known as the High Limit Thermostat) and Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) are used in conjunction to regulate and protect the heating circuits.

The Cycling Thermostat (also know as the Internal Bias) controls the amount of heat required/desired to dry your clothes.

You need to remove the rear panel of the dryer to access the heating circuits on this model dryer. With the back panel removed, the heating circuits will be on the right hand side and the blower fan assembly is located on the left. The Hi-Limit Thermostat and TCO are located on the outside of the heater box with the Hi-Limit Thermostat mounted next to the heating element terminals and the TCO located at the opposite end of the heater box. The Cycling Thermostat is located on the blower fan housing next the Thermal Fuse. It will be the metallic round component, while the Termal Fuse will be a white plastic component.

For better clarification, you can view an exploded view diagram of your appliance at pcappliancerepair.com. If you type in your model number, all the parts I've mentioned are listed under Section 3 (Bulkhead Parts). The components are listed as follows:

Item 6 - TCO/Hi-Limit Thermostat Kit (both parts should be replaced at the same time).
Item 15 - Hi-Limit Thermostat (sold separately)
Item 23 - Thermal Fuse
Item 24 - Cycling (Internal Bias) Thermostat

If you are experiencing heating problems or longer dry times, please review the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Pay particular attention to the section that discusses dryer ventilation. The majority of dryer heat related problems and failures are attributed to poorly installed, clogged, or kinked dryer ventilation. If you haven't had the ducting checked in a while, now may be a good time to do so.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer wont start


Okay...your dryer is one of the more easier dryers to access the heating circuits. All you have to do is unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. The heating circuits will be on the right hand side (as viewed from the rear). The heating element is inserted inside the heater box with the thermal cut-out (TCO) mounted on the top portion of the heat box. The hi-limit thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element ceramic terminals. You mentioned a thermal fuse also. It is a small white plastic (sometimes gray) looking component mounted on the blower fan housing on the lower left hand side of the dryer (as viewed from the rear).

If the dryer does not run at all, the THERMAL FUSE is a good diagnosis on your part.

If the dryer runs, but does not heat, the THERMAL CUT-OUT, heating element or hi-limit thermostat are your likely problems.

The following link provides you with some necessary guidelines on how to troubleshoot if needed:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385301-thorough_dryer_advice

Most dryer problems are related to overheating caused by poor ventilation, or overloading. If you need a drawing of your dryer heat components you can reference searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the model number you provided (include the prefix "110", this identifies the manufacturer as Whirlpool). The number should be written as follows: 110.66801691. Look under the "Bulkhead" heading for an exploded view diagram of your dryer. The Thermal Fuse is listed as item 59 (part #3392519). I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

DRYER TUMBLES BUT WILL NOT HEAT


If this is a gas dryer the MOST COMMON problem would be a thermal fuse usually located in the back of the dryer. you would have to remove the back panel their is only 9 screws securing it. The thermal fuse is going to be white with 2 wires and 1 screw . Unplug the dryer remove the wires from thermal fuse and put them together temporary using tape make sure metal ends make contact and they do not touch any thing else. plug dryer back in and turn on. if every thing works than replace the thermal fuse and clean out your duct
