I viewed a number of vidieos on the Webb to determine the possible problems. The vidieos explained and demonstrated how to test the parts that could have been causing the problems. I tested the parts described in the vidieos and the ones I was able to test showed that they were not defective. I was unable to test the Cycling Thermostat and the High Limit Thermostat to my satisfaction so I ordered the two parts and installed them as demonstrated on the vidieos. The dryer works as if it was a new one. I am a very satisfied customer and will definitely purchase my parts from partselect.com in the future.

The thermostate and one of the wires were burnt. Ordered a thermostate and re wired the connector to the wire. All I had to do was replace the thermostate and connect the wires to it. Took me probably 15 to do it all :)

I took the back panel off, after moving the unit away from the wall, and disconnecting the vent hose. I replaced the cycling thermostat, and high limit switch, and for good measure, I replaced the heating element as well. The diagnostic tips on the PartSelect website were very helpful. I cleaned all the accumulated lint out of the unit while it was apart, then reassembled it. The dryer is working just fine now!

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.)

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..

I had to spin drum for dryer to start, bad start winding on motor, not sure if the problem could have been fixed by replacing the motor contactor. I could not find a part # for just the contactor.

You have to disassemble the dryer. I looked up how to on youtube.com. I am grateful that people take the time to record the steps in which to do just about anything. Disassembled and ordered motor and fan, damaged fan taking it off, got it in in just a couple of days, installed motor, fan and drum, tested before complete assembly. Works great. Thanks

Broken Blower Wheel

  • Customer: James from Mosca, CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

Remove the back panel, then remove the housing around the blower, just slide the housing of to the side, you don't have to take it completly of the machine. Remove the top, and remove the front until you can get to the blower motor. Cut the blower wheel plastic down to the metal nut with a fine blade in a recipricating saw, used a bi-directional broken stud remover socket on the nut that was at the center of the blower wheel and large slip joint plyer on the other end of the shaft. Replace the wheel and put back together. It took about as much time to gather up the tools as it did to fix it.,

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

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...

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.

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