For Whirlpool Dryer Thermal Fuse (Part Number: AP3132867)

Hello. I had been getting an AF error (air flow). I had the vent professionally cleaned and still got AF. My dryer then stopped working. There is full power but once I hit start it the unit does nothing. I fixed replaced the thermal fuse and was able to do two loads of laundry and it stopped working again. I tested the thermal fuse with a multimeter and it needs to be replaced again. What could be the bigger issue that I need to fix. I'm assuming the motor is fine since the drum was tumbling fine and the blower wheel doesn't seem to have any resistance when I turn it by hand. Could it be the thermostat, thermal cut-off, or thermister? Or something else? Thanks!

ANSWER Hello Chav. You need to test the thermistor 8577274 and see if it is causing the issues with the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
