I ordered a thermal fuse which goes on the side of the heating element. I want to make sure I get it all wired back the way it should be. Will instructions come with the Thermal Fuse as to how to wire everything back up under their. Someone tried working on it before I got it and the wrong part was were the Thermal Fuse was supposed to be and a couple of wires were burnt up and I'm sure it wasn't wired properly. Just want to get it wired back right. Help!!

ANSWER Hi Boom. Can you access the inside of the control panel back. Inside you will find your electrical wiring diagram which will show the correct colered wires and the manner that the "series" thermostats are wired. The heater assembly needs replaced so the new wires will not burn. This part # is 61927. Also It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly. There is a gray wire that goes to the bottom of the thermal fuse (mounted to the rt.). The top of the thermal fuse is then jumpered to the rt side of the Limit thermostat (mounted on the Lt.). Then there is a black jumper wire from the top left of the heater to the left side terminal of the limit thermostat. They have to be the exact "gauge" wire size to safely carry the amperage needed for your system. Thank You.
