Our old Admiral dryer quit the other day (1 week after replacing the washer!).  Per RepairClinics suggestions, I bought a new thermal fuse/hi limit thermostat and replaced.  It's still not running, I can hear a clicking sound coming from somewhere way down in the back of the dryer when the switch is turned on.

I've tested for current at the outlet and terminal block, so household power is there and the cord appears good.  What's next:  Terminal block?  Door switch?

Puhhhhhleeeeze, the budget can't take another new appliance!

What was the original problem, no heat or the dryer not running.  The high limit/fuse kit would only address a no heat issue would suppose.  But the dryer motor has to be running for the heat circuit to work.  Is this gas or electric??

Electric.  I spoke with the parts supplier this morning, apparently what I replaced was the thermal fuse, there is also a hi-temp-limit thermostat that needs to be replaced as well.  I can't find it, it appears to be in the back somewhere, but this thing doesn't have a removable back panel, so I don't know how I'm supposed to get to it.

What quit working originally, was the dryer dead or was it running with no heat........you keep mentioning parts that would address both problems

The dryer is dead.  I didn't notice at first, but I hear a clicking sound when the swtich is in a run position.

I replaced both the thermal fuse and the hi-limit thermostat (they come together in a kit), but it's sounding like the motor is toast.
