Removed rear panel and replaced sensor. Sad thing is this was not the problem.It was the coil valves! They are a $20 part together, and I wish I would have replaced them first! There is two of them that are on the main valve for the gas! Remove the front cover of machine. Make sure the gas is off , remove the bracket holding the valves in and this it! Quick simply repair that is where I should have started!

I got on line and searched for parts. I called Parts Select and a gentleman discussed the problem with me. He suggested what part(s) I possibly needed. He sent me the parts we discussed, (he said I would receive them withing 5 business days) I received them in 2. I watched the video which explained procedures for repair, I disassembled the dryer installed the thermostat, reassembled and with in 1/2 hour we were drying clothes. If I ever have any other problems I would call again for info. A great experience keep the good work

Unplug the dryer, remove hot air duct. Remove metal dryer back to access thermostat using a nut driver. Unscrew one screw holding on thermostat, detach 4 wires, and replace with new unit, attaching 4 wires to new unit. Then reverse process to button up the dryer. Great how-to video on your site helped a lot!

I followed exactly the video. It really was that simple. My 5 year old even helped me unscrew the nuts. The Thermostat was on the lint shaft and unscrewed easily. Once out I removed the wires. The hardest part was removing the wires, They were really tight. I replaced the wires and screwed in the part. Before I replaced the back I cleaned out the lint tube and turned on the dryer. I saw the flame and the heater kicked right on. I replaced the back and was done. *****However the next time the dryer went the heat didn't remain on and turned off too soon. I did some more research and found you usually need to replace the thermal fuse at the same time on Whirlpool units. So I have ordered the part and will let you know if kept the heater from turning off too soon.

I ordered the thermostat switch thinking I'd isolated the problem. Discovering that wasn't the problem, I disconnected and inspected the heater coils and found the break in the coil. I then ordered the heater element (also from Partselect.com). It was simple, fast and works like a champ. I did discover my outside vent had a bird's nest in it. You really need to occasionally check your dryer vent (inside and out), for lint and apparently bird's nests.

Dryer just wasn't hot enough

Maytag makes it really easy to replace this part. Unlike the video which has the access panel in the rear of the dryer, Maytag accesses all the thermostats and wiring front the front so you don't even have to pull the unit away from the wall. Smart!! The video was great to show you what the part looks like and how its installed. Installed the part in less than 10 minutes. Now our clothes are drying as they should in half the time...best $20 I spent in a while.

Went on the website to diagnose the problem and ordered the two most likely components for the recommended "fix". Watched the video that was associated with the tracking information that was emailed to me when the parts shipped. Walks you right through the entire process. My daughters could do this. I call myself the "Maytag Repairman" these days and the wife was quite impressed!!! Of course I didn't clue her in to all the help I received from you guys...made her think I was a GENIUS!!! ;)

I replaced the Cycling thermostat. At first I thought I may have blamed the wrong part because the ohm meter read almost the same for the old and the new part. It took less than a day for the part to come probably because it came from Jacksonville. I haven't guessed how much I saved by not calling a appliance repair.

Replacing the cycling thermostat did not fix the problem on my whirlpool gas dryer. I then did more research on the internet and found that a likely cause was the 2 solenoids coils that control the gas valves. I replaced these and this and now the dryer works great. I had no idea how to open up the dryer to get at these, so it took a little while to figure out. 1) Lift up on front of dryer top to pop top off of 2 spring clips. 2) Reach down through top opening and find 2 bolts that attach dryer front to dryer body and remove with a nut driver. 3) Lift up on dryer front to release it from 2 hooks that it hangs on. 4) Remove 2 screws for bracket that holds coils in place. 5) Unplug coils and put in new ones. 6) Reinstall in reverse order. Problem solved. Great service from your site. Received parts 1 day after order using regular ground shipping.

FOLLOWED INSTRUCTIONS PUT FORWARD BY "PARTS SELECT" TO DIAGNOSE MY WHIRLPOOL GAS DRYER. THE INSTRUCTIONS WERE SIMPLE AND SELF-EXPLANITORY. THE CULPRIT TURNED OUT TO BE A SET OF COILS THAT NEEDED REPLACEMENT. AFTER REPLACING THEM MY DRYER NOW HEATS AS GOOD AS NEW AND SAVED ME A LOT OF MONEY PAYING A REPAIRMAN. I SPENT LESS THAT $80 TO FIX THE ENTIRE PROBLEM. LISTED ARE THE PARTS I REPLACED: 1. THERMAL FUSE; 2. CYCLING THERMOSTAT, 3. AND A SET OF GAS COILS. THANK YOU PARTS SELECT ... YOU ARE AT THE TOP OF MY LIST FOR APPLIANCE REPAIR HELP. Sonny from Oxnard, CA
