Default Dryer is blowing thermal fuses
Model Number: LE6150XSW0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The dryer is blowing the thermal cut out fuse on the heating element cage.

The first replacement lasted 20 loads the second only 1.

After the last one blew I have removed the lint chute and pulled a couple of handfuls of lint from the blower wheel area with no noticeable increase in air flow. I have also bypassed the thermal fuse and get a reading of ~155 degrees from the exhaust of the dryer. The thermal fuse is open, and so is the heater thermostat (ring around operating thermostat?) but the high limit and operating thermostat have continuity. The heater element has resistance within spec and is not short to the case.

Is there a anyway to test the heater thermostat or operating thermostat.

Any ideas and thank you.

Rich
