Please help my Dryer work only it cool went it hot it don't turn the drung and make noise, but I wait for it cool down and it work again.
do I need to change Fuse, Thermal Part Number: AP4037790 Made by Whirlpool
Answer Then, I'm having difficulties, If I understand you, Your dryer runs and heats, but makes noise the shuts off, you have to wait for the dryer to cool down , then it will operate again. If thats the case, you most likely need a new dryer motor W10410999 it's overheating and shuts down on the overload. Good Luck and Thanks
Our dryer will not turn on. When I press the start button, it starts to kick for a second and then stops, not even a partial revolution of the drum. The display works correctly as far as I can tell. When the door is open, I get the door open reading. All settings seem to work properly, and displays come up normally. It is just when I hit the start button that it shuts down. I suspect it is the thermal fuse, which I believe is part number AP4043259. It looks like it on the base next to the drum. Would there be another part that could also be causing this?
Answer Steve, I would not expect you to have a bad thermal fuse. Were that the case, the motor would not attempt to start, I would have to suspect a voltage drop below 105 VAC when the dryer is started, check the connections at the terminal block on the back of the dryer. A small article stuck inside the blower wheel, causing a jam and not allowing the motor to rotate. or a bad motor 33002795. Thanks and Good Luck
We have replaced the door switch, timer and tested the thermal fuse. Dryer still doesn't work. It does not have a push to start switch. Should I replace the thermal fuse just in case????? Could it be the motor? It made no sound no squeak just would not turn on one day.
Answer Hi Lorraine. Did you get the response we sent you yesterday? However, Take out the drum and see if the motor will run with the door switchjumped between Yellow and purple. I have (very rarely) seen a thermal fuse ohm closed but not be able to carry the amount of amperage needed for the motor. The thermal fuse is part # 307473. The motor has to have 120vac on the blue and white to run, but 240vac between blue and black. The motor is part # W10410997. Thank you.
The thermal fuse tests good.
Answer Hello Lorraine. Make sure there is power coming to the dryer. If so, make sure the new timer, door switch, and the thermal fuse is hooked up correctly. If so, you will need to test the push to start switch 33002750 and make sure it is working properly. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.

Are there two thermal fuses?
Answer Hello Lorraine. No, there is only one thermal fuse 307473 on the model number you provided. Hope this helps.
Dryer will not turn on, have replaced door switch and timer (AP4042974) . Help!
Answer Hello Lorraine. You will need to test the thermal fuse 33001762 on the side of the heater housing. It should read closed for continuity. If it is bad, the unit will not run.

Our dryer went out, and popped the circuit breaker. When we reset, everything worked except there was no heat. I have replaced the heating coil, but it's still not heating. What else might have been damaged.
Answer Honoree, Yes, If the heater element shorted, and the thermal fuse on the heater housing assembly 307473 has an open circuit, the dryer will still not heat, you need to check or replace the thermal fuse as the next logical step. Good Luck.
