Whirlpool produces Admiral dryers which sell exclusively at The Home Depot. Admiral, like all dryer manufacturers, places a thermal fuse in each dryer it produces. The thermal fuse is designed to detect heat which, if the dryer is too hot, will cut the power to prevent a fire. Unfortunately, thermal fuses can not be reset. You must replace them. Before replacing the fuse, you should test the dryer to determine and fix the source of the blown fuse Otherwise the fuse will more than likely blow again.
