checking now, I dont think you have a thermal fuse in this model . there are a couple of things you can check though, 1 shut breaker off and remove bottom panel and you will see junction box for electrical conection to machine. remove screw from this box and take wirenuts off wires and strip wires back away from soldered conections and put it back copper to copper. you see what happens alot is the solder keeps the copper from making a good conection to copper wire and sometimes the dont have conection at all. I see this all the time put wire nuts back on and try machine .if that doesnt work you either have a bad switch in door latch asm. or a bad board, let me know. Bryan
