Whirlpool Dryer keeps Blowing Fuse

5 posts in this topic

I am working on a whirlpool dryer with the lint trap at the top. It presented with a blown thermal fuse (the little white one) so I replaced it, cleaned out the vent, checked the airflow outside which was pretty strong and left. They called back and said it worked for 20 minutes and died. I went back and the same fuse is dead again. I checked the operating thermostat with a match and it worked but I replaced it anyway. They called back again - same deal! Has anyone had a failing motor or timer cause this before?

Is the element shorted to its casing? I have had a few short out and it causes the heater to be on all the time and never cycle.

Never seen motor or timer cause it, what temps does it cycle at, or does it cycle at all?
