The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.
Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and
fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal
cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.
Well it runs so that is not the thermal fuse. I would check the limits on the heater or maybe the heater itself If these components check ok and yall still have no heat then the timer may be bad. or the dedicated house dryer circuit breaker is gone on the heat load side.
The motor works on 120 volts or L-1 and neutral. The 5000 watt 240 heating element needs both sides of the breaker to operate correctly. Heat can be iffy or none at all if this is the case.
you have to clean out the dryer.if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower,remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean that out and vac out the cabinet where the motor is.if you don't do this the fuse will keep popping,the dryer can't move the air because lint is blocking the air flow,if the dryer starts to run to hot the fuse pops as a safety so you don't have a fire from not cleaning out the dryer
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.
I am sorry to hear this, my name is Marc White, i am self employed and it seems as though you have a bad timer, bad timer will cause the timer not to go to the off position and blow your fuse......change your timer..
your blowing that many thermal fuses, id replace all the thermostats. (2) come in one kit both on heater box 1 top and one bottom. id also look into your venting, a clogged fo kinked vent is going to overheat the unit and blow all sorts of stuff(not to mantion the potential fire hazard of a bad vent
