SOURCE: Location of Thermal Fuse

The thermal fuse is located near the heating element. The part number for the replacement kit is LA-1053. You can view an illustrated parts break down of your dryer at Just type in your model number and locate item 5 under the "Heater" section. Pay close attention to the instructions in the thermal fuse replacment kit. One thermostat is for a GAS dryer, one is for an ELECTRIC dryer. Read the instructions and make sure you use the correct one. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How to turn off lock light on panel for model MDB4949SDM

To toggle the Control Lock, press and hold the Sanitize button for 3+ seconds (until the LED goes off). When you toggle the lock on, the LED will flash three times. See page 5 of the Owner's Manual for information on the control lock. If you look below the Sanitize button, you will see in a small font "control lock hold 3 sec." to help you find the appropriate button on a different model.

The manual for the Maytag MDB4949SDM is available on the product page: . Scroll down to the Specifications section or use the Specs & Manuals link. The direct link to the manual is currently .

I hope this helps.

Where is the fusible link for my LG dishwasher?

If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work. The thermal fuse is usually located in the control panel on the control board or mounted to the bottom of the tank behind the lower panel. The thermal fuse can be checked for continuity.

My dishwasher just quit during the cycle but it still has power going to it none of the lights on the door will work now and it wont restart

There is a thermal fuse located in the control panel that is probably blown out.
Open the control panel by removing the 6 screws around the top inside of the door. The thermal fuse is located on the top right side. Remove the wires from the fuse. Use a volt neter set for continuity to test the fuse. No reading is a bad fuse.
This link will show the fuse.
