I took one piece off at a Time. Made sure that each wire went to the correct place. I felt so good as a woman to be able to fix a necessity in our House without having to call a repairman to fix it for us. We are 3 women in our New Home. Im 46 My life partner is 48 and Our Daughter 17. I can't tell you how thankful i am for watching your video on how to do it. Thanks Part select. Dena , Ave & Fe .

I watched the videos associated with the parts. They were easy to understand and I could follow the steps without difficulty. I replaced both the cycling thermostat and thermal fuse. Separately, I also replaced the "push-to-start" switch. Dryer would still not start. I called the repairman. Problem turned out to be a loose wire that had shorted out in the electrical bar near the "push-to-start" switch. All parts I replaced are determined to be good and will be tried next time I experience the dryer "not starting".

Unpluged dryer first! Diconnected the vent hose.Took out 9 screws out of back panel.1 screw for the thermal fuse disconnected the two wires. Put new one in connected the wires. Then took out 1 screw that held the thermostat in place took 4 wires off. Put new one in reconnected the wires. Vacuumed out the back. Put back panel on. Connected the vent hose, plugged the dryer in. Pushed the start button & started drying clothes. Very easy!

First I watched a instruction video online.. It made the job easy. I have done it before but I did not remember exactly how to proceed, After watching the video i knew exactly what screws needed to be removed and what tool I needed for each step. Anybody sees the video before tackling this job, they can't go wrong.

Broken belt

I did as your online movie said to do it. It is a big help and you can see that the belt, rollers and idler pulley is not a difficult job and you save yourself at least $100. Toughest part of job is putting back the nylon triangle things that hold the rollers on without breaking them.That is why I used the needlenose pliers. The triangle things that hold on the rollers have little tabs on them and I just gently pulled them outward and the triangles went right on.That repair kit from Whirlpool(builder of my Kenmore dryer)was a real bargain and everything fit perfectly. Bottom line is don't be afraid to try this repair. You will most likely succede. Go out to diner with the money you saved. Good luck, Mike

The dryer just stopped working one day

To make sure the dryer didn't die catastrophically, I checked to make sure the timer, the light, and the push to start start switch and the door switch were still working. After they were diagnosed to be working properly, I unplugged the dryer and pulled it back from the wall so I would have enough room to work behind it. The first item you will need is the wiring diagram. If you do not have one, one can be obtained online by using your dryer brand and model number. The next thing you will need is a quality digital multimeter that measures resistance or continuity. The last thing you will need is a 1/4" nutdriver. The first thing you will need to do is remove the exhaust tube from the back of the dryer. The second step is to remove a small black plate located near a green ground screw. The 3rd step is to remove the large black cover on the back of the dryer. Once this is removed, you will need to locate the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is a small component that has 2 blue wires connected to it. It is located on the housing where the steam from your clothes leads to the exhaust port. The first thing you need to do is disconnect the 2 blue wires. Once the wires are disconnected, set the multimeter to resistance. The unit of resistance is ohms and the greek letter omega is used. The red lead of your multimeter goes one metal tabe of the fuse and the black lead goes on the other one. If the multimeter measures 0. L ohms, then the fuse is bad and needs to be replaced. If the multimeter reads 00.00 ohms then the fuse is good and you have another problem. I hope these instructions were useful.

Would not turn on..even though timer and power on button were working

The video help to give confidence to change out the components since they were so inexpensive and the alternative was to go out and buy a new dryer.. It was easy to remove the back panel off dryer (after unplugging from the wall of course). The two components were unscrewed, cables unattached using pliers and replaced. The faulty element was definitely an open thermal fuse. For some reason there was a 5 Ohm resistance when the cables were connected.. Which confused me at first as I thought the fuse was not blown. I guess there was some conductance across the cabinet body. Anyway after replacing the fuse and thermostat the dryer was back to fully operational. I think it now actually drys better than before but that may just be wishful thinking.

dryer was working fine, just very noisy during operation. wump,wump,wump

Watch the video you sent me, and every thing fell into place

The clothes dryer was making squeaky, screechy noises.

  • Customer: Michael from Baltimore, MD

First off, I was somewhat misled by the website and ordered the wrong parts. I entered my model number and ordered the maintainance kit. The info said it was good for Whirlpool, Maytag and others. I also watched the video which is apparently the Whirlpool. So, the wrong parts arrived. The PartSelect peeple were very helpful in getting me the right parts and getting them delivered promptly. I then found the proper video, watched that and did the repair. Be aware that all models have subtle differences. Mine had two long screws in the bottom of the door frame not shown in the video. I also had a little trouble with the pulley spring. I removed the assembly and then got it all back together ok. Then I lost one of the door hinge screws. It evaporated. The replacement part was like $4 so I used one from the local HD and all is well.

Dryer was getting too hot.

I reviewed the on-line video (which was very good by the way) and read the instructions that came with the thermal cut-off kit. Replacement of the upper thermostat was a piece of cake, very straight-forward; just remove the old & replace with the new. The instructions for replacing the lower thermostat were a little confusing because my dryer did not have the orange wire coming from the wiring harness, but after looking carefully at the old thermostat and how it was connected, I finally figured out how the jumper wire was to be connected and successfully installed the lower unit. Bottom line...the dryer works like new. Much cheaper than calling the repairman! Thanks PartSelect!

After watching your instuctional video I removed the back plate removed old wired and unscrewed the part couldn't have been easier. I have never worked on a dryer in my life and am female :). The hardest part was turning off and unhooking the gas line and again after watching a video on how to do it all went well.
