First I watched a instruction video online.. It made the job easy. I have done it before but I did not remember exactly how to proceed, After watching the video i knew exactly what screws needed to be removed and what tool I needed for each step. Anybody sees the video before tackling this job, they can't go wrong.

Dryer was not heating up enough.

I followed the instructions almost exactly as the video and it was very simple. A few of the parts were a little difficult to get off but with a little tugging they popped off. After the initial installation I ran the dryer and the items didn't dry, so I ran it again and got the same result. Fortunately, not know I had already attempted to dry twice, my wife put a load in and it worked perfectly and has been since. Not sure the reason but it took 3 attempts before the heating element worked and I have a 12.5 year old drying that works good as new!

I followed the instructions according to your repair video and they worked perfectly. Thank you for the video, very clear and helpful giving me the self confidence to do the job myself! Part delivery was three days and the money I saved by not calling a repair man is greatly appreciated. I am already recommending part select to others at work!

Pulled the back panel. Removed the connectors from the thermal fuse and checked the to see if it was good with ohm meter. Then checked the thermostat next the fuse on the left side. Then did the same thing with the thermostats at the top and bottom of the heater box on the right side if you are looking from the back of the dryer. Then check the heater element for any opens, this is where the problem was. ordered the part from this site and it took to remove the one screw at the top of the heater box and the whole heater box comes out. then removed the 2 screws on the sides and pulled the old one out and put the new one in the same way. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to do and the dryer was back up and running. I also checked the you tube video series.

Dryer was getting too hot.

  • Customer: Kenneth from Shady Spring, WV
  • Difficulty: Easy

I reviewed the on-line video (which was very good by the way) and read the instructions that came with the thermal cut-off kit. Replacement of the upper thermostat was a piece of cake, very straight-forward; just remove the old & replace with the new. The instructions for replacing the lower thermostat were a little confusing because my dryer did not have the orange wire coming from the wiring harness, but after looking carefully at the old thermostat and how it was connected, I finally figured out how the jumper wire was to be connected and successfully installed the lower unit. Bottom line...the dryer works like new. Much cheaper than calling the repairman! Thanks PartSelect!

Unplug the dryer, take off the rear panel with a nut driver, remove the old heating element (3 screws). remove the thermostat attached to the element, put the thermostat on the new element and install the new element with old screws. re install the back panel with old screws and you are done. Plug it in and it's ready to go!

I watched the repair expert on you tube. Went to my dryer and took out the heating element, inspected it, and found a broken element wire. Ordered a new element and since I was in there I also replaced the high limit thermostat. Parts select made it easy and my dryer works great again. Thank you.

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.

Replace Drive Belt

What a pain in the butt to route the belt thru the tensioner! There's room for only one hand in there. The guys who do this for a living must have some secret. My solution was to drill a 3/16 hole thru the side, make a j-hook from 8-32 threaded rod, use that and a wing nut to pre-load the tensioner, route the belt, then slowly back off the wing nut until the belt was tight. It works. . . .
