Question about Dryers
I have replaced the fuse and thermostat, approximately 1 month later the fuse blows again. I have noticed the est. drying time display change, if set at 41 minutes, a few minutes later the display changes to 15 minutes remaining. I have replaced and cleaned the vent, cleaned the filter, what else could be the issue? It also appears that the drum is louder. Continuity good on element and thermostat.
The first thing that tends to go are the bearings on the drum. When they are worn that will be harder work for the motor and that could be the reason for the fuse going. I would get it checked by a tech. NB A lot of house fires are started by dryers!

You might need to check the exhaust on the rear of the Dryer, or the blower motor iether one has lint inside, restricting the air flow

Clean the vent all the way to the outside.
The dryer will take 4-5 loads to reset the filter sensor.
Mahe sure the vent is not smashed behind the dryer.

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
