Question about Whirlpool Cabrio 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus Electric Dryer
TURN OFF THE POWER NOW!!
Hello. The part numbers are as follows:
42 THERMISTOR 8577274
47 & 48 THERMAL CUT-OFF W/ THERMISTOR-HC STAT 280148(one part number for both thermals in a kit)
51 THERMAL FUSE 3390719
TIP--use a magnetic screwdriver that will take nut-driver bits
You will have to raise the top cover, then, on the right side corner, disconnect the door switch connector. Next, using a headlamp, look inside the unit, back towards the front near the upper left and right corners about 4 inches down on either side. Notice there is a screw on each side. Remove these 2 screws and that will release the front cover. Arc the top of it towards you and lift it off the metal positioning tabs at the bottom and set it aside. Remove the lint screen now. Remove the 3-4 screws that hold the lint duct assembly(metal blower cover) in place. CAREFULLY pull the cover away from the lint screen holder(be *darn* careful that you don't damage the wires connected to the moisture sensor bars on the upper right side of the lint screen holder). Now, carefully look for the thermal fuse attached to the blower housing. It will be the one towards the front, slightly to the left of the exhaust thermistor. It will have a pair of light blue wires attached to it. Note P9-1 BU(blue), thermal fuse, BU(blue). Replace the fuse and reassembly is the reverse--caution--don't forget to re-connect the door switch connector at the right corner--cause "It ain't gonna do a thing" (even if you pray for it to work! LOL)
I hope this helps you!

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.
