Hi Im John I will help you with the thermal fuse .

Do you have a volt meter to check the fuse ?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
yes
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.

Ok, to check the fuse use the resistance setting and unplug the dryer and remove both wires from the fuse and use the two leads on the fuse if you get a reading the fuse is ok .

You can also join and tape the two wires together if the dryer starts to heat replace the fuse.
