HI. The thermal fuse will be mounted to the electronic control board that is located on the rear section of the control panel. I have posted a picture below of the actual fuse assembly.

    The thermal fuse will kill the heating circuit in the event of an electrical short or fuse fault. The best actions are to replace the fuse and check the continuity of the actual heating element. it should read no less than 18 ohms. If it is lower that 18: the element itself will need to be replaced.

    Concerning the inlet issue:

    If you are not receiving water after the fuse replacement procedure, this will indicate that the actual inlet assembly may be damaged, mechanically. You can test that assembly as well for its integrity. The procedure is as follows:

    Water inlet assembly test:


    To access the inlet valve remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow. There are two wires (four, if it has two solenoids) connected to the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. If your valve has two solenoids, test the second one in the same way as the first.

    Additionally; The fuse will also kill the motor circuit if blown, as well. All these issues should be solved by replacing that fuse, if it is indeed blown. If you experience the same issues after the fuse has been replaced, let me know. I'll be standing by for further discussion.

No heat gas dryer


You will have to remove the back panel to access this part. Be sure that you unplug the machine before starting. Once the back panel has been taken off and placed aside the thermal switch will be located on the left lower side near the blower housing . It will be thin and long and located near the cycling thermostat that has for prongs on it. On certain machines, the thermal fuse is located in the front. To access this you must remove the kickplate, which can be done by pushing the clips, one on each side jsut above the top of the kickplate, in between the top and abottom portion. The part numbers are the same for either style dryer. To test this part you can either take the wires off it and tie them together then plug the machine back in and see if it heats, or you can use amultimeter and check to see if there is continuity, if there is its good, if not, bad. The thermal fuse will usually be white, and if located in the back, be thin and long with two wires on it, left and right. If in the bottom front, it will be front center on the exhaust duct. In some cases the ignitor or the gas coils will go bad. Here is a good process of elimination.
1)Verify that the thermal fuse is good. If you don't have a meter bypass it and turn the machine on. If heats, thermal fuse is bad, if not leave connected and continue
2)When the dryer starts and thermal fuse bypassed, the ignitor should start to get hot and glow, if your thermal fuse is in the back you are going to have to have to the top of the dryer up to see down inside near the front for the glow. You can do this by taking the lint trap out and removing the two screws and popping the top up. If the ignitor comes on more than likely the gas coils are bad and if it doesn't the ignitior is bad. (this is while the thermal fuse is bypassed so the ignitor has power to it regardless)

Where is the fuse on a alantis dryer


Instructions :
Unplug the dryer from its electrical outlet or flip the circuit breaker switch that corresponds to the appliance to the "Off" position.
Open the door of your Maytag Atlantis dryer and remove the four screws on the inside lip of the door opening. Set the removed screws aside.
Grasp the sides of the front panel and pull it toward you to separate it from the dryer cabinet. Lift the panel straight up to clear the two retaining clips on the bottom of the cabinet. Set the removed front panel to the side.
Locate the thermal fuse on the blower housing cover. Look for a thin, plastic strip approximately 1 inch long that has two wires attached to it.

Pull on the locking clips with needlenose pliers to disconnect them from the thermal fuse. Remove the screw that secures the thermal fuse to the blower housing cover. Discard the thermal fuse, but reserve the screw.

Line up the screw hole in the replacement thermal fuse with the screw hole on the blower housing cover. Reinsert and tighten the reserved screw to install the new thermal fuse. Clip one of the two wires to each end of the thermal fuse to complete the installation process.

Dryer died after 2 seconds of operation. Timer motor doesn't not make any working sound. Power is being supplied to the unit.


check for an open thermal fuse located on the blower housing located inside unit,first unplug dryer,then pop top cover up by prying upward on cover,and lay back against wall to keep from breaking wires,now remove 2 screws inside on front panel near the top left & right corners,remove door switch plug and pull outward and toward yourself and then upward now the blower housing will be there and the thermal fuse will be on the back side of this housing,you can bypass it for testing,if it then runs replace this fuse,before closing unit up make sure its clean and the vents are free of lint as if not it will open up the fuse again soon due to heat buildup

Was drying and just stopped. Panel is still working


One of the thermal fuses is blown. These thermal fuses are wired in series with the motor and will cause the motor to stop if one has failed. One thermal fuse is mounted on the blower housing near the air outlet duct while the other is mounted on the left side of the heater housing. The fuses fail when an overheating problem occurs. Clean the lint filter; check and clean the exhaust ducting for any lint build up. Lint build up prevents proper ventilation and cause overheating problem that leads to the failing of the thermal fuses. Once these fuses fail, the thermostat associated with it must also be replaced. But it is recommended to replace both thermal fuses and thermostats as a preventive measure. The parts will cost about $50. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Access to the thermal fuses and thermostats requires the removal of the front panel. Open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening and securing the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

The front panel is held to the cabinet by clips on each side secured to the cabinet front flange. Small slots in each side of the front panel engage the clips and hold the front panel in place. Grasp the front panel post near the top cover then pull the front panel away from the cabinet.

Tilt the top of the front panel away from the cabinet and lift it up to release it from the two clips retaining its bottom to the base of the dryer, and then move the panel away.

The thermal fuses and thermostats can now be accessed. Locate the blown thermal fuse with the aid of an ohmmeter. Set the ohmmeter to X1 and disconnect the wire from one of the thermal fuse terminals, and then touch the ohmmeter test leads to the thermal fuse terminals. The thermal fuse is blown when the ohmmeter reading is open (infinite); otherwise it is good.

The thermal fuse on the blower housing is located to the left of the cycling thermostat while the other one is on the left of the heater housing.

To replace the parts, disconnect the wires from the parts and remove each mounting screw then pull the part off the assembly. Install the new part and secure each with the mounting screw. Reconnect the wires and reinstall the front panel back into position. Secure the base of the front panel to the clips on the base of the washer then push the front panel posts to the cabinet engaging the slots with the clips. Secure the front panel to the front shroud assembly with the four securing screws.

Note: Blower housing thermal fuse: part number 33001762; heater housing thermal fuse: part number 307473; cycling thermostat: part number 33002567; high-limit thermostat: part number 303396

pry the top up at the corners and remove attaching screws for the front panel and remove carefully. Now you should be able to see the canister that contains the heat element and the thermal fuse. If your thermal fuse is bad you also need to replace the high limit thermostat switch which is located on the canister itself and check that the heating element is not broken anywhere throughout the coil.
