Your exhaust vent is blocked.
Timed dry is High heat.
Permanent press is a medium heat and intermittent.
The dryer does not get as hot as often in Permanent press mode. Therefore the fuse does not reach critacal and blow.
Remove the vent at the rear of the dryer and run a timed load.
If it dries correctly, repair your vent blockage.
If not, repost and I will lead you to the next step.

Lg dryer is overheating blowing the thermal fuse


you have an airflow problem. Check the vent hose all the way out and the outdoor vent hood.
a simple verification can be performed by disconnecting the vent hose from the dryer and see if this solves the problem.

The thermal fuse keeps blowing


If you pull it out of closet and replace fuse and it works even after turning off again etc for several times--something is happening when it gets put back---did you disconnect venting connection when you pulled it out?

Sears 417.80042990 keeps blowing thermal fuse


Did you clean out the lint filter at the front, heat is the enemy. Clean out all lint from front, if you are handy, get around back and remove all lint and dust by blowing compressed air.

My Kenmore HE5 dryer will not run without blowing an internal fuse. The repairman replaced the fuse, and it blew again. The dryer heats up but will not turn it's heating element off until the fuse blows....


Has any one checked the exhaust vent,other than a bad thermostat the number one cause for the thermal fuse to open is a clogged or restricted exhaust vent flow, the entire vent system needs to be checked ( not just the hose from the unit to the wall) for proper air flow. Turn the unit on TIMED ,AIR DRY (NO HEAT) and go outside to the exhaust vent and check the air flow,if there is any question as to weather the air flow is sufishent get someone out to clean the exhaust vent ,it always a good idea to clean out every few years regardless to help prevent build up of lint witch could cause a fire......Hope this Helps Good Luck

The dryer is blowing the one time fuse


I would also replace the cycle thermostat mounted by the thermal fuse, I believe the part number will be 3387134 but be sure to look it up by model number. If this is not cycling the dryer at the proper temps it will cause the fuse to blow. The other thing that would blow the fuse would be a venting restriction. Check your airflow outside and make sure its got good airflow. If not be sure to clean or replace your venting before running the dryer again. Hope this helps -MJ-

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

air flow could be the issue or if your heater itself is grounded against the cabinet i think your unit is getting to hot check all your vent lines if you have good air flow check the heater try taking the vent totally off for a few cycles and see if the fuse blows agian

Hotpoint NVL333EY Electric dryer blows thermal fuse


I had the same thing happen, I replaced the thermal cutoff and made sure no lint build up. It lasted a week then blew again. I then replaced it again and got to thinking why it would blow. I then took apart the exaust inside the dryer running fron the drum to the motor and right before the motor was a build up of lint ane particals that was almost like compressed sawdust which was blocking half of the line. I cleaned this out and it seemed to work much better.
