I would check your venting and also replace your cycle thermostat (4 wire therm) mounted right next to the thermal fuse. If you have a clear vent and new cycle therm this will take care of the problem. part number on the cycle therm is 3387134

Good luck _MJ_

I am trying to figure out why this Kenmore model 6 5821 dryer is short cycling flame will come on for about 3 minutes or less and continue to turn on and off


Sounds like a thermal fuse is blown. Remove back plate of dryer and locate the thermal fuse (small white plastic strip with two wires coming out). $12 thermal fuse can cause this problem. Have a manual? If not buy one!

I have a Kenmore Series 70 Dryer and I changed the thermal fuse got hot for a few minutes the model #110.74722400


The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.

Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.

Maytag dryer is less than 3 years old. Blew thermal fuse. Cleaned all of the venting inside and out. dryer still overheating and blowing the thermal fuse. Replaced the thermal fuse and the high temp sensor...


Have you tried replacing the operating thermastat it's what shuts it off at the right temp and would cause the thermal fuse to go if it is not shuting.off at the right temp. It happens.
Hope this helps.

Entire vent system cleaned (was really bad). Purchased thermal fuse and thermostat kit la-1053 . Motor spinning fine as well as the air wheel is tight. Removed tumbler unit, checked tension pulley, motor,...


Did you clean the exhaust from the wall behind your dryer to the outside. This is more important than the dryer exhaust system itself. If not get behind dryer and remove exhaust to the wall and using a leaf blower,(electric) put it inside house vent then push dryer back to hold in place go outside and watch to see what all blows out. Good luck.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off


I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.

Kenmore dryer shuts off after five minutes


The vent box inside the dryer still has lint in it. You need to reach way inside to get at it. Turn power off.

Flame only stays on for five minuts. After start


the flame doesn't stay on the whole drying time, it cycles.The thermal fuse allows machine to work and heat up but the cycling thermostat directs the flame to come on and shut off. Do your clothes dry fine?
