Dryer does not get hot


Start with the thermal fuse, remove back check switches with a tester to see if power goes through them. I an guessing it is the one on the dryer duct behind back panel. It is small rectangular with two wires attached to it. If dryer overheats this fuse will pop needs to be replaced. Also vacuum out all of dryer and venting, clogged venting will cause dryer to over heat and cause problem you have. Part is around $6-8. Go to www.appliancepartspros.com they have all parts you need. also a schematic of your dryer showing where all parts are located.

Dryer works but the fuses keep blowing


If you are talking about the thermal fuse, then you have a blockage in your airflow path. Clean your dryer venting for the house, clean the dryer hose from dryer to house venting, and then make sure you clean just after the lint trap in the dryer all the way to the blower motor. Lastly make sure you do not kink the dryer hose in putting the dryer back in it's place.

If you are talking about the home's fusebox, check the amp draw on the dryer if it is less than the fuse rating by 80% call an electrician.

Air not heating up in whirlpool dryer


A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

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.

Whirlpool electric dryer that will not heat up, dryer comes on and turns, but no heat


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. 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.

I have a whirlpool dryer. Model LER8648LW. Where is located the thermal fuse?


Hi and welcome to FixYA!
That thermal fuse will be located in the blower duct in the back of the machine. Take the back off the machine, look for what will probably light-blue colored wires attached to a white plastic oblong thermal fuse. For your model that part is #
