    It has to be overheating for some reason check the vent going outside if it is clean and clear all the way out then you may have a thermostat that is not working correctly.

If the thermal fuse is blowing, it's because the inner dryer is getting too hot. The control thermostat is the likely culprit. It's not cycling the heating element is staying on continuously. I would change the operating thermostat. If you go to, put in your make and model, it will pull up all the parts for your machine.

    I believe there is a reason when I purchased the high temp fuse that was blown in my dryer they also had a temp control switch in with it. DER I was supposed to change out both parts when i changed the high temp fuse. But i didn't see it anywhere online so here you go. Change both parts, t he high temp fuse that is blown as well as the temp copntrol switch as it is probably "closed" all the time. So when you "read" it closed with your meter it really means nothing. You would need to temp test it to tell if it were faulty and not opening up when the temp gets too high.

Replace the starter relay in the fuse box behind the glove box. The fuse ONLY powers the control coil portion of the starter relay. If it's blowing, there's a short in the winding or a short between the relay and the theft deterrent module. Bad relay is most likely culprit

The thermal fuse blows out midcycle. It used to occur about every 6 months but is getting more frequent

The first thing I would inspect is the heating element for damage that may beginning to short out.

If the element checks out good, a failing motor could blow the fuse.

If the motor checks out, look for shorts in the wiring both in the door and under the unit.

It is hard to be more specific without knowing the make & model and the dishwashers approximate age (years.)

Good Luck! Please report back what you found, OK?

Thermal fuse keeps blowing

Mr. Larry (guru?)
The thermal fuse is just that It doesn't protect the circuit from over current although it certainly can open in that case. It is there to protect the board from overheating , thus the term thermal. The dishwasher could be allowing the water to heat too hot or the water heater in the home is turned up too much. The heater could also be shorted to case thus allowing it to be on even though the control is not calling for it especially if the polarity is incorrect to the dishwasher or the relay on the board could be welded closed so that the heater can't turn off even though the thermostat is satisfied. The best thing is to get a person who can check these things. You don't necessarily need to change the board with a fuse. I have changed many fuses with no other problems and verified that the machine was still working years later. sometimes the fuse just blows!

Matag Dryer won't run

If the thermal fuse is blowing or the breakers when you bypass the fuse it means a part has a short circuit. There are more than one thermal fuses in there, so you will have to find where the one that blows is connected to.
My guess at this point would be that the motor or the start up capacitor are causing the fuse to blow but also check for a defective or shorted heater element.
