    its a gas dryer that won't get hot. i think it's the thermal fuse. Where is it located?

    Are you sure it is the fuse and not the heating element.  I guess I don't know if it is electric or gas?

My Cabrio dryer is getting super hot in all dry modes. I have had to replace the thermal fuse. Obviously there is another issue causing this problem. Any ideas?


Melissa,
You probably have a thermostat that has locked in the closed position that is allowing it to continue to heat. I would suggest replacing the high limit and the cycling thermostat. Might not be a bad idea since you would be in there to just replace all of the thermostats, most dryers have three or four.

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.

The dryer runs, but is not getting hot. Is there


Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Maytag electric dryer keeps shutting off.Dryer gets hot. Repairman replaced the motor but still having the same problem.Could it be a sensor?


Generally if the motor shuts off it is because of the overprotector on the motor opening up to save the motor.When the motor cools down the overload will close and the motor will work again.

If the unit is getting so warm the motor is shutting off check to make sure the rollers are working properly and moving freely.

Dryer is running fine just not getting hot


It sounds like the thermal fuse or heating element are defective. Both components are easily checked with an ohm meter or multimeter. The fuse is usually inside the back of the dryer by the exhaust duct. Both components should have continuity, if not they need to be replaced. Sure hope this helped.

Whirlpool dryer


it could be a bad limit switch (metal thermostat) that turns the heat off when getting too hot. if the heat continues too much it will burn out a "fuse" in the back of the machine and it will not turn back on. so if you replace the "fuse" then make sure you replace the limit switches too or the "fuse" will burn out again.
