Question about Dryers
Hi there. You are indeed correct in your assessment of this unit having a thermal fuse. The terminology dealing with this particular unit it quite different than the others. The actual fuse is called a thermal light(thermal fuse/limiter). It is located inside the cabinet, mounted on the upper left or right side(depending on the orientation of the cabinet in your view sight) of the rear panel. I will post a link to an exploded diagram that will help you locate this particular limiter(thermal light). Once you have gained access to the limiter, simply, preform a continuity test to confirm the damage to the fuse. Replace the fuse if damage is indeed confirmed.
Click Here to access the exploded diagram of your unit. The thermal light(fuse) will be labeled number 36 on the provided diagram. The internal terminal box, which is in close proximity to the fuse, will be labeled number 52 on the diagram provided. additionally, there is a second running thermostat that will be mounted on the top right or left corner of the heater housing. It will be labeled number 33 on the diagram provided. The housing will be labeled number 15. i would advise to test this thermostat as well. it may have shorted out when the thermal light blew, possibly, adding to the ho heat state. Replace both thermostats if there are apparent damage.
Testing Procedures for most thermostats and fuses(limiters):

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
Based off what your describing it sounds like a possible issue within your control board or door latch assembly. Is your washer receiving power into it? If not it could be an issue within the power cord or house wiring. Since it could be any of these possible issues I would personally contact a profession to come and accurately diagnose your washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts. -Matt
