Replaced the heating element, simple enough. Hardest part was getting the solid metal exhaust pipe back on and through wall!

I'm a 68 year old single lady who watched the video and just followed the instructions. Took the back off, tested all the parts involved with heating and the only part that didn't have any continuity was the top part of the thermal cutoff fuse. After receiving the part I removed the old one, put the new one in, put the back on and turned the dryer on. It heated right up. I also had a part that I didn't need and your return dept. made it very easy to return. I love this site. Save me a ton of money.

Unscrewed the back panel. Unscrewed the heating element, disconnect the wires. Connect the wires to the new heating element and screw it back in place. Pull the thermal fuse off disconnect the wires from the old one and connect to the new one, then push back in place. Screw the back panel back in place. Put clothes in the dryer and start using. The dryer was back in use within 20 minutes after the parts arrived.

Very easy to repair the heating element. I took the back off and half of it was burnt out (twice as long to dry). Replaced it and works like new. The instructional videos are great. I've replaced my water pump on my dishwasher also. Once again, instructional videos are great. I put trust in this website and their parts. I wouldn't have any worries about this site. Overall satisfaction A+.

I watched your YouTube video about trouble shooting dryers, and found that the problem was my thermal fuse was out. My exact model of dryer was used in the video. I ordered the part and replaced it following the instructions on YouTube. Since the video was so helpful, I decided to order my part from your company

Dryer was running but not producing heat

  • Customer: Anthony from Elk Grove Village, IL
  • Difficulty: Easy

Most of the time was spent just getting behind the dryer and removing the back panel. It was also a great time to vacuum the area. If you're not working in tight quarters, this repair is really easy. The fuse is not hidden and requires no tools to install (only a wrench to remove the back panel). It started working right away & the part cost significantly less than a service call (about nine bucks + shipping).

Used video of PartSelect guy on YouTube to diagnose bad thermal fuse with multimeter. Removed back panel of dryer with nutdriver, removed thermal fuse, found no conductance across terminals. Ordered new part. (It arrived very quickly!) Put in new thermal fuse, replaced back panel. Shortened flexible vent tube so there would be fewer bends. Dryer works now.

Dryer would run, but there was no heat going to the unit

It could not have been easier, thanks to the video displayed when I ordered the part. It was as easy as removing the back of the dryer, taking out the old fuse and putting in a new old. I have NO repair experience, so little I had to borrow the nutdriver from the maintance man at work. I was more then a little leary to try this repair on my own, but decided it was worth all the money I would save not having to call a repair man for my dryer. Sure glad I did I will continue to attempt more repairs on my own.

Checked voltage coming into unit, good. Checked schematic and traced the voltage through the safeties and interlocks. Found the problem at the thermal link. Isolated unit from all voltage sources. Removed part and ohmed the resistance. Found it open. Ordered new link and it arrived before schedule. Replaced and connected wiring, returned power and tested. Worked great! Very easy to find and repair!

I removed the back of the dryer (after unplugging and shutting off the gas valve) I vacuumed any fuzz and debris. I also removed the dryer vent and cleaned that too. I unscrewed the thermal fuse and replaced it with the new one. I wiped everything down and replaced the back and ran the dryer and it worked! Thanks for your help and for saving me money! My husband was so glad we didn't have to call a service man we celebrated by going out to dinner!

Neither of these parts solved my problem. I ordered the cycling thermostat and the regular thermostat (2 pieces) and installed them quickly last night. Problem solved! The video was awesome and made the repair straight-forward and easy. Thanks for your wonderful, information packed site. Saved me from buying a new dryer and spending unnecessary repairman fees.
