Have you checked the gas valve to make sure that it is functioning correctly?

It may be the element has gone bad. You can visibly check it to see if it is bad. Quite simply the wire will be burned in two. I assume your drum is turning o.k.

Replaced thermal fuse 2 weeks ago, went out again, what could cause this?


Look at a couple of things. First and easiest is the air flow through the system. If you do not have any air flow from the dryer vent outlet that is your problem. If you have flow but it is restricted the thermal unit will heat up and "blow out" also. The other item is the thermostat or temperature setting controller. If It is not releasing when it reaches its set temperature the dryer gets too hot and the thermal fuse will blow.

Amana dryer model YNED7200TW will not start. there is power, but start button does nothing. Resetting breaker did not work. Any ideas?


Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)
$10.70

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.

I replaced the igniter and thermal fuse and dryer


The thermal fuse should only be replaced if the dryer will not start
If it starts the thermal fuse is good.
If you touched the ignitor with your fingers it may have blown out.
Open the dryer and check for voltage to the ignitor through the ignitor wires while the dryer is on.
If you have no voltage check the hi-limit thermostat for continuity as well as the operating thermostat.
Check the flame sensor for continuity while it is cold.
If you have power to the ignitor place a clamp on amp meter on one ignitor wire and turn the dryer on.
If you read 3 amps or less the ignitor is bad.
If it reads the amps or more the gas valve coils are bad.

REMOVE THE FILTER AND THE 2 SCREWS UNDER THE FILTER LID THEN PRY THE TOP OPENED AT THE FRONT EDGES BETWEEN THE TOP AND FRONT PANEL THEN OPEN AND LOOK AT THE TOP OF YOUR HEAT ELEMENT HOUSING REMOVE THE 5/16 HEX HEAD AND PUSH IT TOWARDS THE REAR TO DISENGAGE IT FROM THE BACK OF THE REAR BULKHEAD THEN LIFT UP AND OUT IT COMES. cHECK YOUR THERMAL FUSE FOR CONTINUITY. GO TO www.repairclinic.com SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN AND CLICK THE RED 100 AND CHECK THESE PARTS AS WELL. 2986, 2821, AND 2893. THE ELEMENT IS 3367. 2986 NEEDS TO BE CHECKED FOR CONTINUITY.

Whirlpool Dryer Model#GEQ9800LW0 will not get hot


Sounds like a heating element. Those can run pretty cheap and are not hard to replace.

Dryer works but no hot air


Hello, if it's an electric dryer and you have absolutely no hot air, then it's either the heating element or the thermal cut-off, most likely.

The thermal cut-off is the fuse on the element's housing.

Check both for continuity. Good luck :)
Please feel free to keep emailing me if you'd like.
