My Cabrio electric dryer model WED6600VW0 is overheating so much that the outside cabinet gets warm and clothes are too hot to touch. Initially the dryer would not run and I found out that the thermal fuse was defective. While replacing this fuse I discovered that the drum would not run with fuse disconnected, but the heating element would come on. I do not believe this is a safe situation and I'm wondering if the problem with this dryer is caused by something else which caused this thermal fuse to fail in the first place. I ran the diagnostic and got an F-31 fault code. I believe this is the code for the thermal fuse, but I'm not sure since I can not find this code anywhere.
Do you think I have a bad electronic board? The diagnostic did not indicate any faults in this board. I'm afraid to run this dryer for fear to burn down the house if that fuse fails again. Your help will be appreciated.
