I installed the thermal fuse LA-1053 for my admiral dryer which is located at the top rear of my machine, but my dryer still will not heat what else should I look for and where does the fuse with the pink dot go?

ANSWER Hello Eileen. The small fuse in the kit LA-1053 goes on the side of the heater housing. You need to test the heater, and make sure there is 240 volts at the dryer terminal block and none of the wires are melted on the terminal block. 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
