The thermal fuse went out in my clothes hamper

I do not like having to go to the laundromat, and back when I lived at my old apartment, my buddy and I were not allowed to have washers & dryers inside of our units.

And there was only one washer & dryer on each floor, & I could never get a load in even if I tried! So more often than not I didn’t have a choice & could only take my laundry to the laundromat.

And the laundromat was seriously costly, even back then. A giant load of clothes takes 5 to $7 to disinfect just in the washing equipment nowadays. And that’s not even considering the cost to dry it, however one of the most important things about the household I’m renting right now is the clothes washer & dryer. I do not have to take my laundry to the laundromat knowing that I have both of these appliances in my laundry room. However the dryer stopped working the other day & I couldn’t get a hold of my landlord. She eventually told me she would try to buy a new one, but it would take a week to get it updated. To avoid going to the laundromat, I decided to try to fix the clothes dryer myself. I figured out that it wasn’t heating the clothes correctly. There was an issue with the thermal fuse that determines how much heat the clothes dryer needs while it runs. The form of thermal fuse prevents the clothes dryer from overheating during normal use. It was a $30 part & I updated it myself. Now the clothes dryer is heating up again correctly like it’s supposed to.
