For Whirlpool Thermal Cut-Off Kit (Part Number: AP3094224)

My dryer stopped heating and after diagnosing the heating system using a multimeter tester, determined that the thermal fuse had failed. I ordered a replacement part and upon its arrival, checked it for continuity before installing it in the dryer. After completing the repair the dryer worked normally for one load of clothes but the same problem has reappeared (no heat). I took apart the dryer and again tested the heating components and concluded that the thermal fuse that I had just replaced had failed (no continuity). Could this just be the misfortune of a bad part or could something else have triggered the part's failure?

ANSWER Hello Ken. You need to check for a stopped up venting system. If the vent is good, check for a grounded heater or a bad cycling thermostat on the unit.
