Kenmore HE5 Dryer blowing thermal fuses
« on: August 27, 2013, 08:43:28 AM »
I'm working on a Kenmore HE5 dryer that keeps blowing thermal fuses on the blower housing. I've had the customer get their venting redone as it was a mess and replaced the heating element as suggested by a Sears tech, in case it was shorting out. The customer says when I put a new thermal fuse in she can do a couple of loads of laundry and then it gets really hot and then blows the fuse. Any suggestions?

Model #11087727701. I had the customer get their venting setup changed and there is lots of air coming out of the vent outside. Can you test the cycling thermostat and how?
