The most difficult element of the repair was diagnosing the problem. I use a multi meter and started working through the wiring (referring to the wiring diagram) and found that I had no 'continuity' through the heat fuse and high limit thermostat. Once I had that figured out, everything else was easy. I found the parts, although I could not get a good part number match for the thermostat. The replacement numbers did not agree exactly with the numbers printed on the part. I went forwards anyhow and the actual installation was simple and well documented, Thank You PartSelect. While doing the repair, I took the time to clean the vents of the dryer. I removed the front panel and cleaned lots of lint. I also checked the ducting out the rear of the dryer, shorting the duct to hopefully improve air flow. Everything is working well.
