That fuse you pictured is the one that AJ told me to check in that other forum. I know where it is. But ... do I have to remove that filter housing to get to it? I can reach around behind the housing ... sort of. Would that work?
I looked at the coils as best I could. They seem to be okay ... but I couldn't get the heating element out of that box/case thing so my view was somewhat limited. The wires to the box have a blob of black stuff securing them to the dryer base. I was afraid to yank on them too hard.
I think I'm gonna pick-up a ratcheting nut driver. I'm using a teeny tiny wrench to get these screw nuts off. My hands are all scraped up ... I'm covered with God knows what all ... AND I found what appears to be a mouse nest IN THE VENT HOSE to the outside! I'm actually seeing double right now!
BUT, I am tenacious!! I WILL fix this ... what'd you call it? a princess? I'll tell you one thing JW ... she AIN'T NO PRINCESS ... she'd a big white slut!! LOL!
JW ... do you think I can find these parts (the thermal fuse and the other two "things" attached to that box)... or equivalent parts ... locally? I live in Pennsylvania ... outside of Philly. It's too cold to hang clothes outside ... they'd freeze! So the sooner I can get this mother fixed, the better!
Thank you SO MUCH for being kind enough to help a stranger!
