Thermal fuse part number - 25851826-kucbmckx3u3x3wmaw0z02dzb-3-0.jpg 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!

b) Then remove front door panel by removing the two secrews
c) Remember to disengage the door switch wiring
d) you will see the thermal fuse near the blower compartment.
e) If thermal fuse is burned out then it should not have continuity on OHMS scale on a multimeter.

Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)
$10.70

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.

DRYER STOPPED RUNNING. ALL CONTROLS WORK, BUT WON'T START. HIGH LIMIT SWITCH GONE?


It's either of the thermal fuse on the blower housing or the thermal fuse on the heater enclosure is blown. These thermal fuses are wired in series with the motor and therefore, if any of them is blown will cause the motor not to run and hence the dryer not to work except the controls.

Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

Bypass the thermal fuse on the blower housing by disconnecting the wires and taping them together or connecting a jumper wire between them. Close the door then plug and start the dryer.

The dryer should start and heat up if the blower housing thermal fuse is the culprit. Otherwise, the other thermal fuse on the heater enclosure is blown. Unplug the dryer then bypass the thermal fuse on the heater enclosure in the same way the first is bypassed to confirm it.

Plug the dryer back then restart it. The dryer should start to confirm that the heater enclosure thermal fuse is blown. Replace the thermal fuse (part number 307473) together with the high-limit thermostat (part number 303396).

Unplug the dryer and unbypass the blower housing thermal fuse then plug it back and restart it. If the dryer fails to restart, replace also the blower housing thermal fuse (part number 33001762) together with the cycling thermostat.

Reinstall the front panel in reverse steps of the removal steps to complete the repair.

How to change the belt in the kenmore dryer model number 110.62822101. Dryer is not spinning so I would assume its the belt correct?


It is indeed a belt issue if the dryer blows hot air, which means the motor is running, but the drum does not turn. Otherwise, the thermal fuse (part number 3392519) mounted on the blower has failed. This thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor circuit and its failure results in the motor not running and the dryer not working at all.

Remove the dryer real panel to access the blower housing and check the continuity of the thermal fuse. Grab a volt-ohmmeter and set it to the R X 1 scale then disconnect one wire from the thermal fuse terminals then check the continuity of the thermal fuse. Replace the thermal fuse should it read open.

Dryer will not start


The temperature of the air being exhausted is monitored by the cycling thermostat and the thermal fuse mounted on the blower housing. The thermal fuse, which is wired in series with the motor circuit, fails when the cycling thermostat fails to regulate the exhaust air temperature. Failure of the thermal fuse results in the motor not running and the dryer not working at all.

Remove the dryer real panel to access the blower housing and check the continuity of the thermal fuse. Grab a volt-ohmmeter and set it to the R X 1 scale then disconnect one wire from the thermal fuse terminals then check the continuity of the thermal fuse. Replace the thermal fuse should it read open.

Indicate the exact model number of the dryer for specific troubleshooting and repair advice if you need further assistance and for the exact part numbers.

Model RED4440sqO; will not run. Repaced both 30


Remove the rear panel on the blower housing there is a cycling thermostat (part number 3387134) with internal bias heater and a thermal fuse (part number 3392519). The latter is wired in series with the motor which will cause the motor or the dryer as a whole not to start or run when it has failed. Grab a volt-ohmmeter and set the scale to R X 1 then disconnect a wire from the thermal fuse and check its continuity. Replace the thermal fuse should it read open including the cycling thermostat.

Most likely the motor thermal overload has failed if there's power to the dryer and the thermal fuse replaced but the dryer still doesn't run.

Kenmore elite, model 110 60952990,stopped working after I tried to dry a pair of sneekers. It doesn't do anything when the power butten is pushed. Thank you.


The thermal fuse (part number 3390719) is blown causing the motor not to run. This thermal fuse is located on the blower housing beside the thermistor (part number 8577274) and it is wired in series with the motor thereby cutting power to the motor when it fails. The failure of the thermal fuse is due the failed thermistor; these requires both the thermal fuse and the thermistor to be replace.

Access to the thermal fuse and the thermistor for replacement or testing requires the removal of the lower front access panel which is secured to the front panel by two retaining clips positioned about three inches away from the sides. Pry the clips to release it and remove the lower front access panel. The thermal fuse and the thermistor can now be accessed.

Using a volt-ohmmeter, check the continuity of the thermal fuse which is to the left of the thermistor. Replace the thermal fuse if it reads open together with the thermistor.

Remove the mounting screws and mount the new parts in place. Disconnect the wires from the old failed parts and connect it to the corresponding component. Reinstall the lower front access panel back into position.

Was drying and just stopped. Panel is still working


One of the thermal fuses is blown. These thermal fuses are wired in series with the motor and will cause the motor to stop if one has failed. One thermal fuse is mounted on the blower housing near the air outlet duct while the other is mounted on the left side of the heater housing. The fuses fail when an overheating problem occurs. Clean the lint filter; check and clean the exhaust ducting for any lint build up. Lint build up prevents proper ventilation and cause overheating problem that leads to the failing of the thermal fuses. Once these fuses fail, the thermostat associated with it must also be replaced. But it is recommended to replace both thermal fuses and thermostats as a preventive measure. The parts will cost about $50. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Access to the thermal fuses and thermostats requires the removal of the front panel. Open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening and securing the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

The front panel is held to the cabinet by clips on each side secured to the cabinet front flange. Small slots in each side of the front panel engage the clips and hold the front panel in place. Grasp the front panel post near the top cover then pull the front panel away from the cabinet.

Tilt the top of the front panel away from the cabinet and lift it up to release it from the two clips retaining its bottom to the base of the dryer, and then move the panel away.

The thermal fuses and thermostats can now be accessed. Locate the blown thermal fuse with the aid of an ohmmeter. Set the ohmmeter to X1 and disconnect the wire from one of the thermal fuse terminals, and then touch the ohmmeter test leads to the thermal fuse terminals. The thermal fuse is blown when the ohmmeter reading is open (infinite); otherwise it is good.

The thermal fuse on the blower housing is located to the left of the cycling thermostat while the other one is on the left of the heater housing.

To replace the parts, disconnect the wires from the parts and remove each mounting screw then pull the part off the assembly. Install the new part and secure each with the mounting screw. Reconnect the wires and reinstall the front panel back into position. Secure the base of the front panel to the clips on the base of the washer then push the front panel posts to the cabinet engaging the slots with the clips. Secure the front panel to the front shroud assembly with the four securing screws.

Note: Blower housing thermal fuse: part number 33001762; heater housing thermal fuse: part number 307473; cycling thermostat: part number 33002567; high-limit thermostat: part number 303396

Whirlpool dryer LER5636JQ0 won't turn on


The thermal fuse for your dryer is located behind the rear panel. With the rear panel removed, you can locate the thermal fuse as a small white plastic device located on the blower fan housing on the lower left-hand side (facing from the rear). A resistance reading should indicate close to a short (0 ohms). If the thermal fuse IS defective, the replacement part number is 3392519. You can find all this information at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Bulkhead" heading on the next page. The thermal fuse is listed as item number 7. There's also helpful part locator diagrams to assist in troubleshooting. I hope you find this information helpful. If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know.
