Are you looking for your dryers thermal fuse? Have you researched your dryer related problem and found out the fuse is bad? If so great your on your way to saving the day and a few dollars along the way.

You can have an appliance repair technician to your home for just under $100 dollars, fixing for $10 makes more sense to me.

This fuse is located on the back of most Whirlpool and Maytag style dryers. In the picture above the fuse has two blue wires that attach to it. Removing the one screw and sliding the thermal fuse will release it from the dryer housing.

Testing with a volt meter will ensure proper diagnostics, several other factors will cause a dryer to not start, having basic electrical skills is a must when making live voltage tests.
