Using a wide flat screw driver pry the top up at the edges betwenn the main top and the front panel. Lay it down on it's back for this. Now look for your door switch wires and undo them. Now look inside the front panel toward the top and remove 2 attaching screws or hex screws. Lift panel at top and remove. Now undo 3 screws in middle of inside drum and pull drum out after un-doing belt. There you should find your heat element and all the thermostats and the thermal fuse should be labeled. If heat element is not broken then chances are your thermal fuse is bad replace it

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.

No heat


Hi


The first thing to check is the fuses or breakers in your homes fuse box. If this fuse is blown, it is possible for your dryer to spin but not produce heat. If you've checked the fuses and they are not blown, the next possible cause is the heating element.
To check the heating element, move the back panel of the dryer. You'll need a volt/ohmmeter to check the element terminal. Locate the element and set the volt/ohmmeter on the RX-1 scale. Remove one lead from the element and then place one probe of the volt/ohmmeter on the terminal of the element. Place the other probe of the volt/ohmmeter on the remaining terminal of the element. Look for a continuity reading of the volt/ohmmeter of approximately 2-5 ohms. If there is no continuity reading, the heating element is defective and should be replaced.
Also clean the lint filter every time you use the dryer. Even if the lint filter is cleaned after every load, lint will still accumulate around the dryer's moving parts, the exhaust duct and vent. Each year inspect the vent pipe and vent cover operation. Disconnect the exhaust duct and remove lint from the internal exhaust pipe, the duct and the vent. Make sure the duct has no kinks, where lint and moisture can build-up.
Turn off the power; remove the front and rear panels and vacuum out the lint from around the motor and idler. Poor air flow uses more energy and can cause lint build-up in the internal ducting, leading to a fire hazard.

Maytag performa Keeps blowing Thermal Fuse. Vents are clean. Cleaned entire system. Seems to heat up as soon as dryer cuts off.Changed control thermostat as well. Can get one load and replace fuse.


something is still plugged with lint,if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower to clean it out,you have to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the filter is on top remove the vent line,remove the back panel,remove the lint filter and the two screws in front of it and remove the four screws and clean out the duct,if the filter is in front take off the bottom panel,remove the filter and clean the duct,also vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,when the dryer gets to hot the thermal fuse pops as a safety so you still have a block somewhere

My dryer is not as hot and taking much longer to dry the clothes. How do I fix this. I clean the lint trap after every load. I have a ge profile dryer about 5-6 years old.


Three main possibilities:

Either lint is clogging the airflow or a fuse is popped from overheating, or the heating element is broken..

You have to open up and clean out no matter what.

Unplug the unit.
Remove the lint screen and the two screws at the lint slide.
Use a putty knife to release and pry up the clips which hold down the top cover, tilt up the top cover.
Remove the two screws near the top which secure the front cover, tilt out and lift off of the two clips at bottom.
Release the belt tensioner and remove the drum.
Now you can completely vacuum out the entire cabinet. I know some persons who take a pressure washer to it (the motor seems to tolerate the wet treatment).
Remove the rear cover by removing the screws.
On the left (as you look at the rear) you will see a duct leading to the lint screen. Remove the screws and wiring harness (mark the wires). Lift it away and you will see the blower fan. It is invariably loaded with crud, coins, paperclips etc. Clean it out. If you must remove it turn it clockwise as a wrench holds the motor shaft stationary (there is a flat spot near the belt pulley).
Check the heating element. It should not be broken and read "closed" on an ohmmeter.
Clean all and reassemble after you have replaced any fuses.

Fuses should read "closed" or zero ohms. Some person test for bad fuses by temporarily connecting the two wires and then running the unit. If it only gets hot when you do this you should DEFINITELY replace the fuse.

Gas Dryer will not heat


I replaced the thermal fuse and it fixed the problem. I had to remove the blower housing cover on the front of the machine to get to the thermal fuse. There was was an incredable amount of lint in there that I cleaned out. I used one of those lint brushes on a regular basis to make sure the machine is clean. That brush doesn't do a very good job. My wife said that the clothes dry about 10-12 minutes faster.

Dryer takes more than one cycle to dry clothes


Did you clean the entire length of the vent ducting? Or, did you only clean the lint trap on the dryer and the exhaust vent outside? If you didn't clean the ducting as well, you may still have a clog somewhere causing your dryer to be "starved" for air. A dryer needs proper air flow to dry properly. One way to check is to turn the dryer on and go outside to the exhaust vent opening. Feel to see if you have sufficient air flow. If the air flow is weak, you have a clog. If not, you may have a high limit thermostat cutting off prematurely, not allowing the heating element to heat long enough. Check your ducting first and let me know if this helps.
