Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
I have blown two 91°C thermal fuses in the exhauts channel. After the first I cleaned out the channel ahead of the blower. There was quite a bit of lint build-up. I don't believe the screen had been cleaned often enough. Still it blew the fuse again. This time I blew through the ductwork with my electric leaf blower, A significant amount of lint came out, but I'm not positive that the duct was completely blocked. Am I likely to have the problem solved?
Heating element coil my have shorted to the metal housing. There should not be any continuity between the heater lead and the housing. Remove and inspect heater for any signs of heater coil touching the housing. Also as the heater gets hot, the coil may expand and touch the housing. If not sure, replace the heater.

I would think not. The MAIN cause of that fuse blowing is lint build up. Turn the dryer on and put your hand on the outside of the vent duct. Is the air blowing hard? If so, you will probaly be ok, if not maybe your blower wheel needs to be replaced...
