Our dryer has 3 settings and each was slowly burning out. Although I really want a new, fancy dryer, I just can't afford it right now. A friend mentioned that her spouse repaired their dryer by watching a youtube video, so I was intrigued. I typed in "how to fix a dryer" in youtube and the PartSelect video's came up. I watched the "How to change your heating element" one and figured if a professional could do it in a 4 min video, surely I could accomplish it as well. I ordered the part from this site (not only convenient, it was the best online price). It came the next day and I was able to install it in less than 15 minutes. I'm a 33 yr old woman with little "tool" knowledge. Seriously- an EASY repair. It makes me mad that I was about to pay over $200 for a "professional" to do it... OR spend over $700 to buy a new dryer. I was glad youtube directed me to PartSelect! Thank you for making those videos! (oh, and your site is sooooo user friendly. One of the best sites I've seen. I love how it directed me to the exact part I needed. Seriously great site.)
