For Whirlpool Dryer Thermal Fuse (Part Number: AP3132867)

Dryer does not have any power. Previously, when the timer was turned to add time, you could hear the clock clicking and counting down even prior to engaging the start button. I do not believe there is a fuse and wondering if there is a replacement part or a test to determine perhaps which part is faulty. The outlet has power. I even double checked by plugging into a different outlet. thanks.

ANSWER Todd, If the unit is not running at all then you will want to check the thermal fuse that is located on the blower housing. If this thermal blows it will cut power to entire unit. You will want to do a continuity test to see if it is good. If it does not have continuity then it is bad. If this is the case you will also want to make sure that your venting from the blower wheel to the outside of the home is clear. A restricted dryer vent can cause the thermal fuse to blow.
