Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Thermal fuse is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover. If this fuse goes bad the dryer will not heat and you'll have to replace it as it cannot be repaired. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Dryer runs but does not got hot, therefore does not properly dry clothes. I checked the heater element and it is good. Any suggestions?


The Most common problem is a bad thermal fuse.

1 the thermal fuses are located in the cabinet of the dryer under the drum
they can also be located on the front of the blower wheel housing. on the back wall of the dryer or along the heating element can.
2. some kenmore, whirlpool machines have these fuses located in the rear of the machine.especially when the lint filter is located in the top of the dryer.
3. the heating element can also be bad.
4. if you have an ohm meter you can check the continuity of the thermal fuses,as well as the heating element.if there is no continuity on any of the above mentioned parts. Replace the faulty parts.

No heat


The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing while the thermal cut-off is located on the heater housing. If the dryer is electric, runs but doesn't heat, the thermal fuse is not the problem; otherwise the dryer will not run because the thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and cuts power to the motor when it fails. The problem could the heating element, high-limit thermostat, thermal cut-off, or cycling thermostat. These components can be found in the blower housing and the heater housing depending on the model of the dryer. Specify the model number of the dryer for a more specific advice.

On the Kenmore series 90 electric dryer, where is the thermal fuse located.


The Thermal Fuse is located on the air blower housing. Its a small white plastic component with two wire leads.

The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) is located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals.

The reason I mention both these components is because some people confuse the two and use the words interchangeably. There is a difference between the two components and what they do.

DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SYMPTOMS:

If your dryer does not run at all, check your Thermal Fuse.

If your dryer runs, but does not heat you need to check the Thermal Cut-Out.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know what symptoms you are having. Please include your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) so that I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope this is helpful to you.

Kenmore 80 dryer runs and blows air but no heat


If it's an electric dryer, then unplug the machine and check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is located inside the rear of the dryer, usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity will indicate a bad component. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

No heat


if it's a gas dryer, it's the thermal fuse. if it's an electric dryer, it's the thermal cut-off located on the heating element housing. good luck bud :)

Kenmore dryer no heat


check the thermal fuse to see if it's open which means blown(no continuity through it). check to see if heat element is broken somewhere. And if thermal fuse is blown then you'll also have to replace the thermostat switch and the high limit thermostat switch(located close to heat element).
