I removed the Back cover shield about 8 screws, found the thermal fuse, removed and replaced. (2 screws) Then I tested and had heat! I didn't need the cycling thermosat but all and all saved money by doing it myself.

The dryer would not start when pushing the power button and the timer clicked rapidly. Another You Tube video lead us to the thermal fuse. First, we took the lower front panel off, it had two little groove places to pry open with a flat head screwdriver. Then we took off the venting piece. It was jammed full of lint which is why the thermal fuse blew. The thermal fuse itself was tricky to get at the nut in order to loosen it. We vacuumed out all the lint, cleaned the venting piece and lint filter. When the part came, again the nut was tricky, but just requires patience. Put everything back together and the dryer works great again! Really easy and I wonder how many dryers get replaced when this happens.

I woke up one morning to the dryer not working. Every company that I called wanted to charge a high price to come check the dryer. I decided to get on YouTube to troubleshoot the issue. There were a few videos that I saw, but the video for partselect was the best one I saw. I decided to explore the site to see if there was something I could do to fix it. I love the Instant appliance repair help, where you give the issue and it tells you what the problem most likely is. When I put in my model number, it said that it was most likely the thermal fuse or thermostat. I decided to get both since they were inexpensive. I received the part within a couple of days. I decided to come back to the site to make sure I was putting the part in correctly. If it wasn't for this site, I would have been paying hundreds of dollars instead of the $30 that I spent. Thanks so much PartSelect!!!!!!

Unpluged the dryer. Removed the vent hose with a reg. screwdriver. used a 1/4" nut driver removed the back of the dryer. Located the The Thermal fuse and replaced it. Found the Cycling Thermostat removed the 1/4" screw and changed the wires one at a time to get them in the right spot. Reinstalled the Cycling Thermostat. Pluged the dryer in and turned it on. It fired up in about 10 seconds. Turned it off and unpluged it. Reinstalled the back and Hose and away we went.

After doing on line research at other sites, I bought an inexpensive multimeter, took off the back of the dryer, and started trying to figure out what part wasn't working. I might as well have tried to diagnose a jet engine problem, I didn't have a clue. Then I went to the Part Select site, and their stats showed that in 50% or so of the cases where a Roper doesn't start, you need a thermal fuse, and should also replace the cycling thermostat while you're at it. The "how-to" video showed me exactly what the parts look like, and where they are in the machine, and the cost of the parts plus delivery was less than $50!! It was worth taking the chance for $50. The parts came in two days, were installed in five minutes, the dryer works and I'm thrilled! Part Select is the absolute best. This is the first appliance repair I've ever done. I would never have done it without you. Thank you.

The thermal cutoff kit was bad. I followed the instructions in the video on the website to repair the dryer. According to some extra research that I did, the heating element is protected by the thermal cut off kit so there is a greater chance that the thermal kit will need to be replaced before the element will. There is a chance that the element could go bad, but more than likely it ise thermal cutoff kit.

I searched the symptoms on the PartSelect Website, decided to go with the recommended solution. Watched the video for replacing the suggested parts. Since I had already replaced the Blower Wheel and Motor on the dryer in the past I was familiar with removing what was required. The actual parts replacement was simple, and the result was a dryer that was operating properly once again. Thanks.

I followed the video link on the website step by step - that was much more helpful than reading the included instructions which seemed a little obscure for this layman. I thought for sure i would have to drop another $500 on a new dryer after buying my last one less than FOUR years ago! Ended up spending $40 including shipping which was super fast.I am now a dedicated fan of partselect and I know exactly where to go when my next appliance breaks..which they seem to do way too quickly now days.

At first I thought it was the ignitor, so I replaced it. No luck there. Next I went to the Part Select web site...that showed that the Thermal Fuse was the cause of this symptom 45% of the time. I installed the fuse and now my dryer is working!
