Dryer would not turn on

With a few hours of research online I found a site to help me diagnose what was going wrong with the dryer. After another hour of tracking down my multimeter (not thinking to just bypass the fuse) it tested bad. So after all the additional time to diagnose the problem, coupled with the two-days to get the part from Partselect, the repair took less than 15 minutes! Now I actually have a use for the multimeter I got from a computer class all those years ago...

the dryer would go through the cycle, the clothes were still damp

First I unpluged the dryer.I disconnected the vent remove 9 screws to take the back off. Remove the screws that held the thermostat & fuse, carefully remove the wires from the old ones and put them on the new ones. Places them back in places and put the screw back in. Replaced the back,put the vent back on, pluged it in and turn it on. Every thing worked properly. I watched the video before, I was well pleased with everything. Leo

Disconnect the power cord. Unhook the dryer vent hose. Remove the back. Find the Thermal Fuse. Use a ratchet and socket to remove socket head screw that holds the Thermal Fuse in place. Disconnect one of the two wires from the old Thermal Fuse and attach the wire to the new Thermal Fuse ensuring the wire is placed on the same end of the new Thermal Fuse as the old Thermal Fuse. Repeat procedure for the remaining wire and screw Thermal Fuse back in place. Replace the back, reattach the dryer vent hose and connect the power cord.

No heat, took a while to diagnose

Saw no heat, web said probably the fuse. Replaced the fuse. Nope. Second guess was the thermostat at the exhaust. Replaced that. Nope. Finally got to actively troubleshooting and isolated one of the thermostats near the heating element. Replaced that and everything is fine. So now I have a good spare fuse and thermostat for the next repair. There was one tool I wished I had, a socket small enough to open the back. I had to use pliers and that was a pain. Other than that the repair was almost trivial, just unplug the bad one and plug in the good one.

Went to your web site and found 40% of the time the thermal fuse is the problem. By using your site found how to locate fuse & test it. It took me 10 min to take out the old part & tested it to find it bad. I ordered the part which cost $10 & got it in 3 days. It took me 10 min to install it and the dryer is fine. This save me a big repair bill.

Removed back of dryer and the fuse was right there in plain sight. Had to remove a screw and pull contact wires from fuse. Attached wires to new fuse, replaced screw that held fuse in place. Replaced dryer back. This web site is great! Diagnosed my problem, and then received the replacement part the next day! I will use the site again, if necessary, and recommend it to others.

First I read about repair problems on this unit. Went to parts select help and read about my problem. I decided it could be the thermal fuse. When I took the vent off pipe off it had the starting of a birds nest in it. This plugging up the vent pipe caused over heating blowing the fuse. Thanks part select

Checked circuit breaker, cord, outlet. Went through troubleshooting guide on website and isolated the problem and ordered the thermal fuse and cycling thermostat after watching the video. Parts arrived the next day, much quicker than promised. Unscrewed the back cover and removed the thermal fuse which was exactly as depicted in the video. The dryer worked! I replaced the cycling thermostat next and checked that the dryer still worked. Reattached the back cover and now no more hanging the wash on the clothesline. I was really impressed with the accuracy of the video. The troubleshooting guide and testimonies of others with the same problem gave me the confidence that my diagnosis was correct. Easiest and most efficient repair process ever. Thank you so much PartSelect for an outstanding service! AAAAAA+++++ company!

Seriously, there's no need to explain how to do it because the video shown on how to change the thermal fuse is as precise and accurate as it can get. You should have no problem switching out the thermal fuse as long as you have watched the video!
