Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.


Is this blowing house fuses for the thermal fuse inside the dryer?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
House fuses they are 30Amp TC type time delay.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
Well it's definitely drawing too many amps, 99% of the time it's the motor, the motor draws a lot of amperage when it's failing, and then when the heater kicks on it draws even more amps and blows the house fuses, the motor runs about $80.00 for this plus the service labor you're probably looking at about $200.00, as the motor runs it gets hotter and draws more amps like I said when the heater You a Drawing More Than 30 Amps and therefore the fuse blows, you either need to replace the motor or replace the machine, if you know an electrician he can test the amps being drawn by the machine to be sure that it's not electrical issue in the house itself, hope this information is useful, thanks, Bryan
