Learned that my Kenmore dryer was actually a Whirlpool model. Removed kick plate in front of dryer. Removed the cover to the blower wheel. Cleaned out Dryer with vacuum cleaner. Used a multimeter to check for continuity on all thermostats, fuse, and heating element. Decided it was the cycling thermostat. When ahead and replaced the fuse at the same time. Checked out the installation video on this site, wwwPartselect.com ( it was very helpful in understanding how to remove the cycling thermostat - needle nose pliers helps in pulling of the connect wire clips - knuckle buster). Ordered next day delivery. The parts were on my front door early next morning FEdEX ( i live in the very corner of the NW US). Nice!

Easy to follow videos on your site made this repair a breeze. I ended up having to replace the high temp cutoff as well but for 60 bux my dryer works like new. The repair man wanted $100 just to come look at it. Could not have done of without the easy to follow video.

Extremely easy! you can do this too. Just watch the video and have the few basic tools the video suggests. I am not skilled in repair at all. This part was shipped very fast and everything I needed was on the site. The hardest part was cleaning up the lint, seriously. Don't spend $100+ for a repair person to come to your home. This task is simple for anyone, any skill level.

We followed the instructions on the video step by step. The repairs was very easy. I'm glad I did not pay the repair person 4x the amount I spent on just parts and delivery. DIY was the best option especially compared to how much money we saved.

I replaced the thermal fuse and the cycling thermostat, it was quite easy you need a 1/4 nut driver and remove the back of the machine and the two items are there in plain view simply remove and replace and voila,I am a woman with more knowledge of how things don't work when broken but laundry was going to pile up and I was desperate and couldn't afford to call a repair man and the husband doesn't fix things he doesn't use and he was planning on stringing clothes line throughout the house to remedy the problem :( it took me about 45 minutes but that included finding anything I might need and vacuuming and cleaningthe dryer and vents had I called a repairman I may have ran off with him ;) felt amazing when I turned it on and it worked perfectly!

After checking the PartsSelect website, I found that the most likely cause for my no heat problem was the Thermal Fuse and the Cycling Thermostat. I ordered both since they are located next to each other on the dryer. I followed the instructions in the video, first removing the dryer back. Next I located and removed both parts. I also did a cleaning of the dryer compartment since the back was already removed. Installed the 2 parts according the the video and re-installed the dryer back. It is now running like new. Great website, excellent video instructions saving me $600 to replace a perfectly good working appliance.

I diagnosed the problem using the web page. It said that 60% of the people with my problem bought the Thermal Fuse. I unplugged the dryer AND cut the power at the fuse box. I used a screwdriver to remove the vent hose, a nutdriver to remove the back of the machine. The thermal fuse was right there. Removed the old one with a screwdriver, unplugged the wires from the old one and snapped on new one, and screwed it back in. Re-installed the back of the dryer and the vent hose and Whoila! It works like a champ.
