Its the thermal fuse. when you jump or, by-pass the cycle thermostat, you are basically by-passing the fuse as well. replacing the thermal fuse will fix thsi issue.

The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

My Maytag MDE4000AYW electric dryer is not heating and drying my clothers


Check for a blocked vent. If the vent is blocked or restricted it will cause the thermo fuse to blow. If the thermo fuse is not blown check for a broken heating element. I hope this may help.

Lg 8377 no heat,dryer runs cold.Ran diagnostics,start more dry less dry buttons same time.Saw plc ng.


You may have a high limit switch that has failed. You will need to tear down the dryer to get access to the heating element. Look for the heating element on the bottom right side. There are 2 thermo discs located on the left side of the heating element. Test both of them. If there is no continuity, change that part.
Hope this helps.

My dryer whirlpool still blow cool air but do not heat please tell me what the problem henry le


Bad heating element or bad thermo fuse.
You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the back to access the heating element. The thermo fuse is located on the side of the heating element.
If you don't have a meter to test the element and thermo fuse or just don't know how simply remove them from the dryer and take them to your local appliance repair shop and they can test them for you.

Error code "AD" means air/automatic dry. This type of dryer has no thermo fuse which is a fuse like part that tends to break disengaging the heating element, there for the dryer has a busted heating element.There is no other go you should go for a replacement of your heating element. This solution will solve your problem.

Dryer too hot...no cool down


no the thermal fuse has nothing to do with that,although it will open again if too hot and that may be why it opened in the first place.most high heat ,long dry times are the house ducting.try this experiment.remove your dryer from the house ducting and dry a load[it wont hurt a thing]if not as hot,then get that ducting cleaned.if still hot then make sure the inner dryer air ways are clean.your blower is spinning fine[not broken on the shaft]and also check with ohm meter,or visually that your heating element is not shorted to ground[then it by passes the cycling thermostat.if all those things good and still getting high heat i may replace the cycling thermo.but as a repairman i did not have to do that very often.most of the time it was the other possibles. i hope this helps abit God bless ,tom

Whirlpool electric dryer


either you are pushing the dryer back to far and crushing the exhaust vent hose .your exhaust vent going outside is stopped up , or your low temp thermo will not let the dryer cycle and it is over heating.
