Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
My thermal fuse #3392519 is blown (open-no continuity). The dryer seemed to be functioning fine when it completed the last load. Then nothing. Do you recommend replacing any other part (like the high limit thermastat and thermal cut off fuse) when I replace the non resetable open thermal fuse? Or do you think it will probably be OK to just replace the thermal fuse. The machine is probably 18 years old now.
Model LE5720XSWO. Thanks, Robert P
Just replace the thermal fuse for now. You have gotten good use from this machine. But, this is also may be the beginning of the end. Thermal fuses are not expensive either. These things just go out at no uncertain times.

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.
