TUAN From BELLINGHAM, WA

First I take off the top panel , then take out four screw of console panel and disconnected wire from machine electric panel . Now I take four screw of door panel , disconnected door switch and take door panel out . Next step is to take 2 screw at blow housing and take this part out . Now I have enough room to take off two wire of the old thermal fuse and thermistor without removing the drum . Pull out old thermal fuse and thermisor , install the new one, reconnect two wire for each of them and reinstall all of part I take out before .The dyer work good after that but in the next day the dyer won't start again .I some time hear the sound bip bip together with the light from console panel even though I don't press any buttom at all .I thought either machine control electric or user interface die . As a new customer of partselect , I would like to hear any idea from you . Thanks for reading .
