The model number of your machine doesn't seem to exist but the thermal fuse, whether dryer is electric or gas, is always located on the blower housing together with the thermistor or cycling thermostat depending on the model of the dryer. The blower housing is located at the rear of the dryer if the lint filter of you dryer is located on top of the cabinet and can be accessed by removing the rear panel.

The blower housing is located on the front right bottom of the dryer if the lint filter is located on the door. It can be accessed by removing the kick panel.

Kick Panel Removal

Once the kick panel is removed, remove the lint chute to expose the blower housing and the thermal fuse.

How do i replace the thermal fuse


Hello there
Unplug your dryer from its electrical outlet. make sure that all electricity has been disconnected from your dryer before moving on

turn off the gas valve that supplies gas to your dryer. Remove the gas flex line at the shut-off valve using an adjustable wrench.


Remove your dryer's back panel. take out the screws on the back of the dryer and the panel will come free. set the panel and screws aside until you are ready to replace them.


locate the thermal fuse between the dryer's blower housing and exhaust. the thermal fuse looks like a white plastic strip with two connected wires.


unplug the wires connected to the thermal fuse.


remove the screw that secures the thermal fuse to your dryer. set the screw aside and discard the broken thermal fuse.


replace the thermal fuse screw to attach the new replacement thermal fuse to your dryer.


reconnect the wires to the thermal fuse.

Dryer will not heat gas


Check the following areas to combat this issue. the most common problem spot will be a blown Thermal fuse.


1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.
