Question and Answers

Q:

What would cause the "Thermal fuse" to fail?

A:

You are hearing the timer motor running which is normal if the timer is set to time dry with the door shut.

The thermal fuse normally fails when ever there is a restriction in air flow. A restricted venting system is normally the cause of a thermal fuse to open. Check the venting system and the outside vent cap; make sure the flapper door is opening fully. I recommend taking the lint filter screen out and take it under the sink and wash the screen with warm water and a soft bristle brush. If you use a lot of fabric softeners it can cause a clear film over the screen and restrict airflow.
