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.

Dryer was taking too long to dry

I removed the 9 screws from the back plate of the dryer. I cleaned all the lint off the wires and the entire back of the unit with a paint brush and vacuum cleaner. Then I removed each part with a nut driver, also removing the wires and replaced each part in less that 1/2 hour! The videos were a huge help. Now my 16 year old dryer works like new. Saved lot of $$$. Thanks Partselct you're the Greatest!

Dryer stopped heating

I thought I would do it myself and figured that because it wasn't heating I would replace all the thermostats and thermal fuse. Because I wanted to get it going right away, I also ordered a timer just incase. Turns out it was the timer and not the thermostats or fuze. I have a virtually new dryer again. Replacing the parts was really easy and didn't take long. Word of advise is to use an electrical (ohm) tester to determine which part is faulty; this will also save money by not buying not-needed parts.

Changing the parts was very easy and took little time to replace all of the parts. I did watch the vidoes that where helpful. Troubleshooting the problem took more time than the repairs

Click on the problem and find the possible solutions. Click on the part and watch the installation instructions. Unfortunately, mine was a bad thermostat/fuse that can only be purchased with the High Limit Thermostat which I had already purchased. What you might find helpful is that all thermostats and fuses should show continuity at room temperature when using an Ohm meter. Both purchases arrived within 30 hrs. of shipping. I was impressed. I ended up changing all three thermostats but was still way ahead considering a service call is $140 plus parts. I almost scheduled this service until stumbling onto this site thinking the heater was bad but was much cheaper than the local appliance/repair store. Again, the continuity test showed that the heater was fine and everything already mentioned above could be inspected and changed in less than 10 minutes.

Clothes were coming out damp after the drying cycle.

i replaced both the high limit and cycling thermostats because cost was not that much and these thermostats change settings as they age. After replacing the thermostats the problem was solved.

Took back panel off. Did not have a clue! Went to Partselect Web site,entered my problem,BAM! instant solution.Watched repair video and was surprised how simple repair looked.Heck I can do this,no problem! I work from 7 A.M. to 5 P.M. so theres no chance to stop by local appliance part store before they close. Ordered my parts from Partsselect,arrived in just two days. Followed video instructions ,completed job in thirty minutes or less! I also got important information regarding maintenance and cleaning dryer to prevent fire hazard.Thanks,for help and saving me time and money.When I have a problem in the future I now know where to go.
