The repair was simple, and easy. And would be for any of the parts related to the issue of "no heat" or "not enough heat", however I had never used a multimeter before, and the learning curve was not simple. I ended up ordering a total of four parts, three of which weren't needed in order to perform this repair. Replacing the defective part was very easy. I wish I had been able to find better instructions on the internet or the Partselect website on how to use a mulitmeter to diagnose which part was broken. This would have saved me a couple of days waiting for the correct parts and hours of internet searching for clear instructions. It turned out that the main issue was that some of the parts needed to be checked for continuity and some for resistance. Not knowing which meant a lot of trial and error before I was able to figure out which part was broken. In fact, I really was only able to figure it out AFTER i had the new parts and was able to test the new ones next to the ones in the dryer and see which didn't read the same on the multimeter.

Dryer ran but no heat

Upon receiving the parts from Parts Select I reviewed the contents of the package and then compared with what i had ordered. I then reviewed the video to locate the part and to ensure correct dis-assembly and installation. I had no problem with the new installation once I sorted out the wiring. Th PS video for this model describes and shows three red or orange wires coming for the harness two standard and on e thin wire which goes to the thermal cut-off. In my dryer this orange or red wire was actually bland white striped. I called PS who suggested I call Whirlpool who also could not help and insisted that this model had an orange wire where I was describing it as black, the concern was was that with this new thermal cut-off wires had to be cut and fitted with new ends to accommodate a change in design. I therefore did a little temporary wiring t before I cut any wires to ensure my assessment was correct. I was then able to cut the black and white wire fit it with a new end and plug it into the double connector that was now fitted to the jumper cable. I the connected the double connector to the thermal cut-off and tested the dryer for heat. I re-fitted the back panel and re-positioned the dryer to present everything is working satisfactorily. I would comment that someone needs to check why my dryer had a black and whit cable coming from the harness when both Whirlpool and the PS video show it as orange/red.

Dryer would no longer put out heat.

We got this dryer from my F-I-L after they had to enter an elderly home. My F-I-L was a modern Tim-Tool-Man-Tyler. He had removed most of the protections and installed a 392 Thermal cut off, I guess he wanted to dry his cloths in 30 seconds or less. I was not aware of this, and used the dryer. Yes you guessed it, we sat it for a 30 minute cycle and it blew the cut-off and melted the wiring. I am a degree/certified computer tech so I fixed it myself, but I hate 220 electricity. Need less to say I checked with this site for the OEM parts and they pointed me in the correct direction. I did have to remake some of the wires since they were crisp, but it all went well and it was easy enough. The lesson, companies install OEM parts for a GOOD reason, best always to follow the makers directions.

Read comments from PartSelect help, ordered the Thermal Cut - Off Kit. The parts were delivered the next day, the complete repair took about 15 minutes, did I mention the parts were about 25 dollars cheaper than local.Recommend this site to anyone with a minor knowledge of any appliance repair.

As soon as the back was off the safety switches were right there making the repair quick and easy. I was happy that your kit included both safety devices. This made for a confident repair for the three ladies that use the dryer daily. Wiring the parts was especially easy because you-all included a new jumper,new bolts and slip fit ends, there was no doubt that a good installation was the ultimate result. Thanks for your easy ordering format and really quick delivery. I am very satisfied and have bookmarked your site for future parts needs.

Every thing worked just no heat. Ordered the heating element without taking it apart. It arrived in 2 days. It wasn't the heater. Ordered the Thermal Cut-Off kit. It also arrived within 2 days. Due to my recovery from back surgery my niegbor put the parts in both times. So two disassembly and two assemblys. Total time was about 30 min. for both. Used only a 1/4 in nutdriver both times. Works like a dream.

No heat in dryer rotating just fine.
