First bought the Cycling Thermostat and Thermal Fuse. Installed. Still did not work.Next bought the Thermal Cut-Off Switch and the High Limit Thermostat. Installed. Still did not work. Then purchased the timer and installed. Still did not work. Finally tested the heat element with an on/off switch and wire. The heater worked. Changed the 2-pole 30 amp switch in panel box and the problem was solved. The parts were reasonable and easy to install. I left the new parts in and saved the old oned for the future, Parts delivery was quick. Will use parts Select in the future.

Had my wife call the repair man. Since it was Saturday afternoon, no luck. YouTube help me diagnose the problem. I found that the drum belt slipped off the idler pulley assembly and the assembly was laying on the floor. I noticed that the belt was frayed and was probably stretched out which may be why the belt slipped off in the first place. I glued the frayed pieces of the belt back with gorilla glue and clamps. You Tube helped me mount the idler pulley assembly and string the belt correctly. I then ordered the replacement parts through your website. The parts came to my home in a few days and I will fix the dryer properly when I get a chance.

I read your instructions and followed them exactly and I replaced the door switch. I was so proud of myself for being able to fix the dryer and save a lot of money by not having to buy a new one. I ordered the part and it was here in 24 hrs. I am so impressed with this site. I have told others about it and plan to repair my sister-in-law's dryer for her. Thank-you for honest and reliable service.Doris Brazelton

I followed the directions on your site. I pulled out the filter on the top of the machine. Then removed the two screws where the filter is located, I am not sure I would have found those screws had it not been for your directions. I then pulled up on the top of the machine by grabbing the sides near the front of the top, it came right up. I then raised it enough to place a broom handle to hold the top up so I could reach the switch. I removed the two screws holding the switch and then pulled the connector apart. I then replaced the switch with the two screws and plugged the connector back together. Removed the broom handle and closed the top and replaced the two screws I removed by the filter. Replaced the filter and started the machine running and opened the door and it turned off and the light came on. It took me about twenty minutes.

Complete disassembly and diagnosis

I am more fortunate than most because I have extensive mechanical repair experience and my father has extensive electrical repair experience...he read the schematic while I placed the probes in the appropriate locations...I completely disassembled, cleaned, replaced all maintenance parts (felt gaskets [front & back of drum], drive belt, foam gaskets on heat exhaust duct)...the culprit was found to be the Thermal Fuse but I also replaced the Cycling Thermstat just because I serviced the entire heat exhaust duct (it had a fair amount of lint in it after 14 years...all other sensors on the heater unit and switches (door switch & centrifical switch (you will never find this unless you take out the drive motor [it is inside the drive motor] were tested and found to be good...all dash controls / switches were found to be in good order also...Part Select is wonderful to work with...they said allow 5 days but the parts were here in 2...! Just a little help for all of you out there...putting the felt gasket on the back of the drum will test your patience...it is a little smaller than the drum and as you get near the end with the glue it is extremely difficult to get on...I would recommend having a lot of clamps handy to hold the portion that is already glued to drum in place and another set of hands to rotate drum while you are stretching on the remaining foot...! One other thing...if you don't want to go thru everything I did chances are quite strong that if the dryer does not restart (after first failing) I would say to just order the Thermal Fuse for the 9-10.00...it is a pretty safe bet this will be your problem...I believe the dryer will start / restart even if the heater unit is no good and or the Cycling Thermostat goes bad since that just senses humidity...? The switch and fuse on the motor are not replaceable here...my father had contacts to get those parts from the motor company but...one is designed to stop the motor if it becomes hot which in all honesty I think would be pretty rare...it is in an open area...the other switch inside the motor prevents the heater from heating up until the motor is spinning which inturn spins the exhaust fan which is a safety feature but again I think motor failure is pretty rare.

Lint Chute and Lint Trap Seals had Deteriorated

The on-line instructions were excellent; however, the man doing the demonstration used a brand new machine - not one where the old seals had melted and dried out and required serious cleaning before attaching the new seals. The new seals went on easily and I am very happy with everything about this task. I am also glad I now know what that lint chute looks like, so I'll do a better job of keeping it clean in the future.

Clothes getting hot, but not getting dry

Verified that the heater element was working; drum and contents were getting hot. Could hear the thermostat clicking on/off as the element started to glow. Drum stayed very steamy the entire time; consistent with no airflow. Fan motor was running, dryer vent/line were clear. Verified cold (not hot) air from the external vent. Seals had degraded to the point that the fan was not drawing air from the drum, but from inside the dryer cabinet at the lower seal (by the fan blades); hot air was escaping from the upper seal and was causing the dryer cabinet to get unusually hot. Installed these 2 seals, and the dryer is working perfectly now.

The dryer had no heat but would tumble

I Removed the rear panel. Then I used the instructions online to locate and test various parts and determined what was defective. I order the parts online and received them the next day. It took less than 30 minutes to do the repairs. The dryer works great.I will be using partselect.com in the future and would recommend them to anyone who is having problems with their appliance.

the lint chute assembly had corroded & would not accept the lint screen.

I pulled thee dryer out from the wall, shut off the gas & disconnected the gas line & the air vent, I then removed the fasteners from the upper end of the lint chute assembly (accessible from the top of the machine). I then tipped the machine over on to its front side making the back fully accessible. After removing the back cover, I removed the remaining fasteners holding the lint chute assembly in place & removed the part. I then removed the assembly only to find that the seals were not included in the package even though I had specifically asked about the seal when I called in & place my order. The response to my question was " seals are included that is why it is called an assembly." The end result was that I had to use alternate material & fabricate my own seals in order to complete the installation. As a result a repair which should have taken no more that 30 minutes, took over two hours.

The thermostate and one of the wires were burnt. Ordered a thermostate and re wired the connector to the wire. All I had to do was replace the thermostate and connect the wires to it. Took me probably 15 to do it all :)

Using the video that is on your website on what and how to replace broken parts, we followed the same procedure. 1. Found the heating element in the back of the dryer after removing the cover panels. 2. Used a volt-ammeter to determine which part(s) was/were not functioning. 3. Used screwdrivers to disconnect/reconnect wires. 4. Closed panels.
