This is a thermal fuse for your dryer. The thermal fuse is a safety tool that stops the flow of electricity if your dryer is overheating. If your fuse is faulty your dryer will not start or heat properly. This part is a one-time use fuse, which attaches to the blower wheel housing of your dryer. It cannot be re-set, and must be replaced when continuity between the pins is no longer present. Terminal size is 3/16 inches. When making this repair we recommend checking all vents for buildup. Clogged dryer vents can cause the fuse to blow.

Checked the heating element and found a break in the heating coil. Decided to change the thermal fuse and the the cycling thermostat because of the age of the dryer.
Were these instructions helpful?
According to multiple sources on the internet, there are two fuses that commonly cause this problem. I checked the continuity of both and found my thermal fuse had gone out. Replacing was as simple as opening the back of the dryer and unplugging the old fuse and plugging the new one in (this was disconnected from wall power obviously).
well i replaced a lot of parts..but i think it was the the lid switch. but now its brand new..Thanks
Best site I have ever used for repairs. First a list of what parts were needed was provided right from the start, no guessing. I followed all of the video's provided for installation instructions and and that was it. Very easy to make repairs and almost rebuilt my dated dryer to like new condition. Appliance was in very good physical condition just needed new components to bring it back. Highly recommend this site to anyone who can turn a wrench.

Replaced thermal fuse
Remove back cover. Switch out parts (both plug in and affixed by screws) and test. Put back cover on.
Took off back panel of dryer and be removed old thermostat and thermal fuse. Replaced with the new one and wired up by transferring one wire at a time. Took apart top and front of dryer to get to coil valve. Replaced with new ones. Repair person would have posted 150 to diagnose and additional 50 per part got all three parts shipped for 50 so did it myself and saved at least 250.
Removed the back panel. The fuse and the thermostat were right there. One screw on the fuse and 2 wires, 2 screws on the thermostat and four wires. Very simple and easy job. Dryer works perfectly now.
Removed from electric source, removed back panel and replaced all parts as instructed.
