Question about Dryers
I have a crosley dryer model number cde6500w. I replaced the thermal fuse. The dryer worked for three cycles. The thermal fuse came in a high limit thermal kit, that consisted of two fuses and the high limit thermostat.The fuse that i replaced had a red dot on it. The other fuse has a yellow dot. When the dryer stopped i heard click sound. Where is the fuse with the yellow dot located? Can the fuse with the red dot be purchased separate?
I believe that you probably purchased a kit of fuses which provides fuses for several different types of dryers. That way the parts store can sell you the kit without knowing exactly what type of dryer you have. If I am right about this, there is no yellow fuse in your dryer, you will need to buy a new one to replace the red dot fuse. Also, you will want to find out what is causing it to blow again so quickly, probably your exhaust duct is a little plugged, causing the inside chamber to get too hot.

The thermal fuse for this dryer is located on the right side of the heating element behind and near the top/left of the drum. You will see two white wires leading to it. The Thermostat is right above the heating element - two red wires lead to it.

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.
