The repair was made very simple with the help of Steve and his YouTube video instruction. I really can't take credit for the repair, my teenage son did it while I held the laptop and fed him the instructions. Clothes are dry, my wife is happy, so we're all happy and it cost less then $35.00.

Thermal cut-off sensors were bad

This is easy... unbolt the back panel on the dryer. there are just a few components there... watch the video this website has .. replace the 2 thermostat sensors ... easy.. i also cleaned in there... removing the air tube and vacuumed inside and around the fan unit... found 46 cents in change and some other crap. If your mechanical y inclined you should have no trouble doing any of this. When i put back the air tube i used new foam weather strip to seal it up.. need this to make it tight.

The parts were easy to put in, but one of the parts was defective. I called and told them of the problem they were very helpful and replaced the defective one in a very timely manne. I haven't had time to check the replacment part as of yet, I feel sure it will be OKAY, keeping fingers crossed though. The credit for the part has not come through my bank as yet, but the second charge has however. Respectfully E.A.S Hammondsville Oh.

Dryer would not heat.

I thought first it was the heating element. Because I am 50 yrs. old and have fixed dryers before. And that was always the culprit. But, now there are safety features that will prevent heating. With PS videos I was able to diagnose my problem with a continuity test. After checking all. I found it was one part to the thermal cut-off kit (which contains 2 parts/switches). Very easy repair. I ordered my parts on a Thursday just before midnight. My parts were at my door By Saturday afternoon. Awesome website. Awesome service. The help videos PS offers will walk you through any problem. I will use them for every repair in the future. Thank You

Dryer wouldn't start... Just a hum when you press the start button.

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

Well it took me longer to get the dryer apart and than it did to get it back together... Well I opened it up it was obvious I had burned up the motor you couldn't even see it for all the lint that was built up around it... And the hardest part was removing the fan from the motor shaft, I didn't realize it was plastic and sort of mangled it getting it off so I went ahead and replaced it as well. The hardest part of the whole repair was removing and replacing the clips that hold the motor in place and there didn't seem to be any trick to it, I used a pair of channel locks and a little muscle to get them off and back on everything else was a breeze! I recommend checking the exhaust pipe at least once a year to make sure air is flowing freely to prevent the lint build up inside and even more often if you have a long run. This should prevent having this problem again...

broken wheel

I had purchased a motor for the dryer first. The blower wheel broke while I was trying to take the motor off from the blower wheel. Installing the new wheel was fairly easy once I took the blower cover of at the back of the dryer and literally brake the wheel of the motor shaft.

i had difficult time getting wheel off.

  • Customer: dwight from monticello AR
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

found out that pushing in on wheel and turning counter clock wise, wheel screws off rather easy.

Dryer stopped heating.

  • Customer: Rebecca from Eagleville CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

I watched a you tube video. Simple steps, paid attention the old part removal. A nut driver is often easier to use then a screw driver. Very often the answer is right there..No heat check the heating element. Had I not had a tester I would have removed the heat part and carefully checked the curly wire for breakage. Ladies do be afraid to try stuff i am 65 and it was not had to do...Becky

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

  • Customer: Richard from Paramount CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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.

Drum seal came apart

  • Customer: Glen from El Paso TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

Raised top of dryer and removed screws holing front on. slid front panel up and off to remove drum. Seal was easy to install but you do have to be careful with the adhesive. After adhesive was dry laid dryer on it's back and installed drum. Reinstalled drum belt. Placed front panel back on and installed the two screws holding it in place. Set dryer upright and closed top.

My 11 year old son and I ordered the parts we needed. Saw the GREAT easy installation video, It even was attached to my confirmation. After the parts got here him and I easily took off the old belt and clip, installed the new ones (after watching the viedo again) and we where done. You would have thought we fixed the space shuttle or something because we both smiled all day. My son also told every one that he and his mom fixed the dryer all by ourselves. Costed me only $40 dollars for the parts. I couldn't have even called a repair man out there for that. Thanks soo much.
