Hi, it’s Steve from PartSelect. Today I’m
going to show you how to change the thermal fuse on your dryer. It’s a pretty easy job.
All we’re going to need is a quarter inch nut driver and perhaps a pair of needle nose
pliers. The very first thing that we need to do is
disconnect the power to the dryer. If it has a plug merely remove that from the socket.
If it’s a hard-wired dryer we need to find the source and disconnect the power there.
The second thing that we need to do is remove the dryer vent. We need to pull the appliance
out because all of this repair is going to be done from the back. Now we need to remove all of the screws holding
the back panel on. On this model there are nine quarter inch screws. The
location of the thermal fuse is right on the
blower housing, right here. With the back removed we now have access to our thermal
fuse. Remove the two wire terminals and the quarter inch hex-head screw. The thermal fuse
has a little tab on one end and you have to pivot it out. To install the new fuse slide that open end
with the notch, put the screw back in place and reattach the wire terminals. The last thing we need to do is put our back
panel in place. That really was an easy repair, wasn’t it?
Good luck with your repair and thanks for watching.
