Whirlpool Dryer Thermal Fuse (3390719)

This is a very common Whirlpool thermal fuse replacement used on most Whirlpool and Kenmore dryers. It is a disposable, one time use thermal fuse with 2 terminals and is located on the exhaust duct. To see if the thermal fuse went bad, you would need to check for continuity with an ohmmeter. Always make sure to unplug any appliance when checking for continuity. If there is no resistance, the thermal fuse is bad and needs to be replaced.

This thermal fuse will fit most Whirlpool and Kenmore made dryers. Made by Whirlpool. Part Number: 3390719.

    We have had to replace our thermal fuse for our 2004 whirlpool gas dryer twice. What is causing this to blow? Could there be a problem with the gas dryer? Possible fire? Do we just continue replacing the fuse or should we report this problem to Whirlpool? Please repsond ASAP

    Having too much lint will overheat your dryer and trip the fuse.

    First thing I would do is make sure the dryer vent is clean and clear of lint. Check the whole vent – from the blower wheel to where the pipe comes out of the back of the dryer, including the lint screen and lint screen chute. Check the hose outside of the dryer as well.

  5. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
