Question about Amana ALE230RAW Electric Dryer
I have a Amanna electric dryer lea30aw model number, I have had to replace the high limit fuse 3 times. not sure why it keeps blowing
My dryer stopped working, using a multimeter I determined that the thermal fuse was open. I unclogged all the ducts then ordered a high limit thermal kit. After changing the fuse, it blew-up on the first cycle. It turns out that even though the high limit checked ok, it was defective. After changing both the fuse and the thermostat(included in the kit $25), the dryer worked correctly.

The high limit fuse is designed to open if the heater runs too hot, preventing the dryer from catching fire. This is usually caused by poor exhaust airflow.
Look in the rear of the dryer and ensure the exhaust hose is not crushed or kinked in any way. If not then there may be a blockage in the exhaust line from the wall to the outside.
