The thermal fuse is going to be located on the heating element housing. When you take off the front panel you will see your lint screen housing. You will need to remove that to get to the element housing. Once that's out of the way the thermal fuse should be right on top of the housing. It is small and has two small wires coming off of it. The wires should be different colors. Just don't get it mixed up with the thermostat. Just match it up with the new one that you have. It is held in place with two small screws. Let me know if you have any other questions or still can't find it, also let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad to help out.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dryer front panel
I located a video on youtube.com free of charge. I removed the lint screen, and removed the two screws located in the lint screen housing. Then I pryed the top off near the front of the dryer, which has two clips. Then I remove the two screws locate on the top of the front panel, but they are located on the inside. I removed the door lid swich by removing the two screws. Lastly, I pulled the front panel outward and pulled up lightly. The front panel was off. The issue I had was the dryer would heat up and then got cool after five minutes. The solution was to replace the coils. Important point is that the coils ohm readings were within specifications, but I did located information on the web that indicated this was a potential solution to the issue, and I replaced the coils even though the resistances were within specification. Total cost $22.95 plus tax.

there are screws either on top of or in the grille that allow you to remove it. after screws are removed, open the door, pull lightly toward you starting at the control side if it does not pull, then it may have to be pushed toward the hinge side, then pulled out. behind the grille, is the screw attaching the control panel. lift the panel up before pulling out. Just to add a thought,if the display lights up it is probably not the fuse, although, in some models there is a high voltage fuse, it is pretty rare.
