Located on the blower housing of Whirlpool built dryers, this thermal fuse will fail when exposed to excessive heat, usually due to a restricted dryer vent. When the fuse fails, the motor circuit will open preventing the motor from starting and the dryer from operating. This is the round version of the thermal fuse, look below for the long version.
