We started with replacing a thermal fuse, went onto heating element & then to replacing the high limit thermostat. The replacements went very easily with your videos, but unfortunately it did not do the job & there is still no heat.

Unplugged the cable and removed the air-vent hose. Removed the rear panel. Marked and removed the wires from both thermostats. Prior to replacing the new parts I used the vacuum and cleaned all of the excess lint and dust from the dryer. I then installed the new thermostat and fuse. Simple..

After getting the parts I remove the flex pipe then remove the back cover of the Dryer, then I discover a bird in the exhaust flex pipe and another one stock in the blower fan. The Birds was preventing the air from escaping from within the dryer and as a result we were getting a lot of steam build up inside the dryer. Once I removed the birds I went ahead and replace the parts anyway and the dryer has been working fine ever since. Replace the flex line. (The old parts are still good.)

Dryer was taking too long to dry

I removed the 9 screws from the back plate of the dryer. I cleaned all the lint off the wires and the entire back of the unit with a paint brush and vacuum cleaner. Then I removed each part with a nut driver, also removing the wires and replaced each part in less that 1/2 hour! The videos were a huge help. Now my 16 year old dryer works like new. Saved lot of $$$. Thanks Partselct you're the Greatest!

Dryer stopped heating

I thought I would do it myself and figured that because it wasn't heating I would replace all the thermostats and thermal fuse. Because I wanted to get it going right away, I also ordered a timer just incase. Turns out it was the timer and not the thermostats or fuze. I have a virtually new dryer again. Replacing the parts was really easy and didn't take long. Word of advise is to use an electrical (ohm) tester to determine which part is faulty; this will also save money by not buying not-needed parts.

Changing the parts was very easy and took little time to replace all of the parts. I did watch the vidoes that where helpful. Troubleshooting the problem took more time than the repairs

Installed both parts but still doesn't heat. Probably have to buy a dryer because a new element will be about $80. Your response and delivery time were great as were the instructions.

Click on the problem and find the possible solutions. Click on the part and watch the installation instructions. Unfortunately, mine was a bad thermostat/fuse that can only be purchased with the High Limit Thermostat which I had already purchased. What you might find helpful is that all thermostats and fuses should show continuity at room temperature when using an Ohm meter. Both purchases arrived within 30 hrs. of shipping. I was impressed. I ended up changing all three thermostats but was still way ahead considering a service call is $140 plus parts. I almost scheduled this service until stumbling onto this site thinking the heater was bad but was much cheaper than the local appliance/repair store. Again, the continuity test showed that the heater was fine and everything already mentioned above could be inspected and changed in less than 10 minutes.

I don't have specifics although they were emailed with my order confirmation and were perfect. I have dealt with PartsDirect multiple times over the years and have always been more than satisfied with their speed of shipment, quality of parts, and stellar instructions(even video most times). With PartsDirect, you never have to buy another appliance.

I made it very difficult. I didn't research the repair. My back is old. It's easier if you just You Tube a video. The top roller you have to take drum completely out. The bottom one, The one that failed for me, you can actually do it without taking anything apart. Access it at bottom back, two holes. I do not have small hands, it would have been easier. Channel Locks inside, 9/16th socket outside. That will loosen main axle. Then use short screwdriver or socket driver on small bracket connected to bottom of unit. Mine had one screw holding it in. Easy bottom fix. I don't really recommend replacing top till it needs it. You can only buy them by the pair too. You will be ready when time comes. I found top roller didn't actually need replacing, did it cause I had it all apart. Don't fix if not broke, right? Trust, BUT, Verify. Smaller hands, would have helped me. All I got.
