Question about KitchenAid KEYS700LQ Electric Dryer
The little white part with one hole is the thermal fuse, similar to the cutoff but service a different purpose.
The cut off will blow if there is lack of air flow, typically a plugged vent or lint screen.
The thermal fuse will blow if the exhaust temperature is too high. The reason the temperature is too hot can be one of two things.
#1 and most likely is the component right next to the thermal fuse, it is the operating thermostat.
#2 A shorted heat element that is on all the time, this can be checked by turning the timer knob to 30 minutes on the timed dry cycle, close the door but do not start the dryer. Open the door after about 2 minutes and see if the drum is hot. If it is not the element is okay.
I hope this helps
