Q:

BLOWING THERMAL FUSE GEW9200LW0 Whirlpool Dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer keeps blowing the fuse. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information to assist you. 

There are a couple of things to consider. It shouldn't make any difference if you are running an automatic cycle or timed cycle to the thermal fuse.

Unplug the dryer and remove the rear panel. With the rear panel removed you can turn the timer on to a heat cycle but don't start the dryer. See if the element gets hot with the timer turned on but the motor not running. A grounded element can come on with the timer turned on even though the motor is not running. It will heat with 120 volts so it may not be as hot or bright as normal but it can still get hot enough with no air flow to open the thermal fuse.

If the vent is okay and the temperatures are correct then the other thing that might cause this problem is how the clothes are checked to see if they are dry.

One potential problem is how the clothes are being checked to see if they are dry.


Towards the end of a cycle sometimes a customer will simply open the dryer door and put their hand in to see if the clothes are dry. If they're not dry you close the door and hit start again.

The proper way to check the load is to turn the dryer off before opening the door. When you open the door with the dryer still running and heating then as soon as you open the door you lose the airflow. The element will continue to heat until the motor stops turning. This extra time with the element on but the door open and no airflow is enough to blow the thermal fuse.
