You need to remove the front dryer panel clean dryer completely of lint . Even where the lint filter is . Also make sure the vent hose is not kinked or filled with water and lint . I changed a thermal cutt-off 3 times in a dryer within about 2 weeks time . On the last time , removed the front panel and filter housing , and a big ball of lint fell out . Cleaned vent housing and inside of dryer and no more problems since .

Lg dryer keeps blowing thermal fuses we have checked the thermostat and the element all have continuity


The thermostats (outlet and on element case) can still allow the heat to go to high, restricted airflow will also cause them to go.

My dryer keeps blowing the thermal limiter fuse or switch,what ever it is called.why?


Hi candwloc..
If the thermal fuse /thermostat overheats the dryer will not operate.
It's located on the blower housing and it cannot be reset.
A vent clogged with lint can cause the dryer to overheat and keep blowing the thermal fuse/thermostat.
You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it.because it is faulty.
Please take time to rate me

Thermal fuse keeps blowing. Dryer heats up too


The problem will be either your vent is stopped up or the cycling thermostat and the high limit thermostat are bad. If the vent is clean, both the cycling thermostat and the high limit thermostat are welded closed. Both are supost to open to avoid over heating. Go to www.partselect.com and enter your complete model number. It will bring up diagrams of you machine. From there you can find the parts ans also order them if you want to. Good luck.

Thermal Fuse


First of all stop replacing the fuses and using the dryer it could burn down your house. The problem is the vent is clogged (not necessarily in the dryer) make sure also that the vent flex is not excessively long behind the dryer and is not kinked when the dryer is pushed back.
