If its heated electrically, not by gas,then it sounds like the heating element has shorted to the case and this would blow the breaker

HI. It is standard practice to replace the hi-limit thermostat when replacing the thermal fuse. Usually, The high limit thermostat will become stuck or malfunction(always reading high). This malfunction in this particular thermostat will continue to cause the thermal fuse to blow, repeatedly.

Replacing the Hi- limit thermostat will correct this issue. Replace it along with a new thermal fuse, asap.

  • NOTE_ Make sure the wiring is connected properly and not crossed when installing your new Hi-limit thermostat and new fuse.

    • NOTE_If you are referring to the home breaker switch; This will be quite different. My above solution is in reference to the thermal fuse blowing. If your home breaker switch Is blowing, repeatedly, this will be the result of a failed connection inside the unit, or the heater element has shorted.

Did you clean out the lint filter at the front, heat is the enemy. Clean out all lint from front, if you are handy, get around back and remove all lint and dust by blowing compressed air.

I replaced the thermal fuse because there was no heat. Now the dryer over heats and shuts off. Everything checks ok on ohm meter. The timer works in the "no heat" mode. Could it be the timer...


after you changed the thermal fuse did you clean out the dryer and the vent line?if not you blew the fuse again and it will keep doing this until you clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac and blow out the motor and the cabinet where the motor is and blow out the vent line,if it's a long run remove the vent line from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower.the dryer went over 300 degrees from lint buildup and popped the thermal fuse,it's a safety so the dryer doesn't run hot and start a fire.if the dryer is running and sfter like 20 minutes it shuts down and won't start for a while until it cools down then the motor is bad also probably from the dryer running to hot from the lint build up.

My Kenmore HE5 dryer will not run without blowing an internal fuse. The repairman replaced the fuse, and it blew again. The dryer heats up but will not turn it's heating element off until the fuse blows....


Has any one checked the exhaust vent,other than a bad thermostat the number one cause for the thermal fuse to open is a clogged or restricted exhaust vent flow, the entire vent system needs to be checked ( not just the hose from the unit to the wall) for proper air flow. Turn the unit on TIMED ,AIR DRY (NO HEAT) and go outside to the exhaust vent and check the air flow,if there is any question as to weather the air flow is sufishent get someone out to clean the exhaust vent ,it always a good idea to clean out every few years regardless to help prevent build up of lint witch could cause a fire......Hope this Helps Good Luck

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.

The first hose blew off the back of the dryer after replacing the hose it now sounds makes a loud racket and smells hot. What can this be


make sure that you don't use the plastic type of vent hose. This is meant for non heat, like a bathroom fan. If you have metallic venting, go outside and see if the dryer air is able to come outside with some force. If not there is a blockage in the venting somewhere. If you went for a while without realizing the first one blew off, you could have built up a lot of lint inside the dryer. You will have to take it apart and vacuum it out. If lint gets onto the element when it heats up you will smell it burn.

A load was running and then my dryer just turned


SOUNDS LIKE YOU BLEW A FUSE IN YOUR DRYER. THAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN YOU HAVE A VENTALATION PROBLEM. THE FUSE SHOULD BE BEHIND THE BACK COVER-AT THE BOTTOM--TWO WIRES PLUG INTO IT AND IT IS PROBABLY WHITE.

Dryer blows limit fuses, have replaced before.


The vast majority of dryers that blow high limit fuses have the same problem: Lack of airflow. If anywhere in the venting system for your dryer is restricted your dryer will heat up too hot. The excessive lint in the filter, a clogged dryer vent hose, the vent within the house, even within the dryer itself all are places where a restriction could occur. Check all of these for being restricted. Also make sure if you have a flexible hose between the dryer itself and your dryer vent on your home, make sure it is not crushed when the dryer is in place. This will cause your limiting fuse to blow very quickly.

When you remove the hose from the back of the dryer you can check that the dryer itself has decent airflow by starting the dryer on the fluff/no heat setting. This will give you an idea whether it is restricted inside the dryer or not. If you even have a hint that it is not putting out the air it should, have it cleaned (or if you are mechanically inclined do it yourself just make sure the dryer is unplugged).

Then have the dryer vent system cleaned. Replace your high limit fuse and you should be back in business.

I replaced the thermal fuse and it blew again shortly after.


The main cause for thermal fuses to blow is a restricted airway. You need to make sure that your path for airflow is clear:

Check your dryer hose: make sure it is clear of debris inside, make sure it is not kinked when the dryer is in place.

Check your dryer vent: some houses and apartments have a fairly long dryer venting system before it reaches outside.

Check your dryer: just after the lint trap and prior to the blower motor is a common place for a blockage. You may have to take the front of the dryer apart to get to it. I have seen all kinds of things get passed the lint filter.

Each of these things would cause even a new thermal fuse to blow quickly. A combination of them could easily do that. The thermal fuse is the dryer's safety cut off, preventing your dwelling from burning down from an out of control dryer. So it's all about airflow, airflow, airflow.

Keeps blowing thermal cutt-off fuse


You need to remove the front dryer panel clean dryer completely of lint . Even where the lint filter is . Also make sure the vent hose is not kinked or filled with water and lint .

Cleaned vent housing and inside of dryer and no more problems since .

Hotpoint NVL333EY Electric dryer blows thermal fuse


I had the same thing happen, I replaced the thermal cutoff and made sure no lint build up. It lasted a week then blew again. I then replaced it again and got to thinking why it would blow. I then took apart the exaust inside the dryer running fron the drum to the motor and right before the motor was a build up of lint ane particals that was almost like compressed sawdust which was blocking half of the line. I cleaned this out and it seemed to work much better.
