I have read about thermal fuse online? Don't know how to test?

Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

good evening .your correct, the thermal fuse is the most likely cause.this is located on the blower assembly in the back of the dryer.pull the dryer out and remove the back panel (unplug first) the thermal fuse is # XXXXX on this diagram. heres a link to order it and theres also a video there on how to test it. hope this helps, thanks, Bryan

I don't have a continuity tester, any other way to test?



Is there anything else I should look at?



The unit does not turn, start anything. Or is that the reason

you can disconnect the two wires and tape them together just to see if it starts. make sure its unplugged before taping the wires then plug it back in. remember to replace the thermal fuse don't leave it bypassed and use the dryer. its a safety.
