Following the on line video instructions I installed the new push to start switch. The switch did not function so following the video instructions further, I replaced the Thermal Fuse which was recommended if the switch didn't function. That did the trick, I put everything back together and the dryer has worked perfectly ever since. Te repair cost about $100.00, far cheaper than buying a new dryer.

well the problem wasn't the start switch, it was the thermal fuse and thermometer. they blew because I didn't screw them back onto the blower housing after the motor and fan repair. However, start switch repair was very easy. unplug dryer, pull off the plastic start button, unscrew the back top panel using a 1/4 inch socket wrench (I think this is what it is called). once inside, the start switch is located at top left. need to pull the top clip with your thumb or finger while twisting the connector to the left, it comes right out. change out the start switch and reassemble. Videos located on youtube. I have changed out 12 parts (2 rollers, 2 shafts, start switch, idler pulley, belt, rear felt seal, motor, blower fan, thermal fuse and the cycling or initial bias thermometer) on this dryer in past couple of months for a squeaky dryer, dryer still squeaking, dryer won't run at all, etc. all videos were located on youtube most by partselect. motor and blower fan were the initial problem and then Then the thermal fuse and thermometer.

I replace the terminal block, wires , and dryer plug I unscrewed the back of the dryer and basically replace was burnt out. I was about to pay 200.00 to have it done but I looked on youtube and seen how easy it was so I just chose the site to order what I needed to be replace and it arrived quickly and more affordable to do it myself. Thanks I hope the was useful.

Dryer stopped drying

We had initially ordered the wrong parts, but I called them to send one of the parts back. While I was on the phone with the rep, we ordered what I thought would be the right part. By this time I had been without a dryer for 5 days. It was about 4 in the afternoon. I asked the rep if we could possibly get the part the next day, and she politely stated that she didn't think so. But, the very next afternoon, the part was sitting at my door! I replaced the part easily while watching the you-tube on their website, and had the dryer running like new again in about 10 minutes! And I am a woman! I saved $300 instead of buying a new dryer. We have ordered from Partsselect before, and will continue in the future. I would recommend them to anyone who has any kind of appliance repair issue.

Used wire schematic and locate thermal fuse. Disconnect power and remove rear panel. About 8 screws. Remove the two wires from fuse and check fuse continunity. Fuse was open and prevented power from going to gas solenoids. Replace fuse and clean exhaust ducts. Dirty ducts might have caused fused to over heat.

Dryer would not heat up.

I went on the PartSelect site and watched some videos to determine what could be wrong. I almost guessed and bought the wrong part as there were a few. I ended up spending $17 for a multi tester. Once I determined that the thermal fuse was bad. I just followed the instructions from the video and replaced it. Took me more time figuring out what part was bad and buying the tester than actually replacing the part. Very glad I bought the multi tester watched the videos. After that it was easy.

From the list of parts that most commonly fail causing the no heat condition I selected the most common part, the heating element. I replaced it according to the instructions on the associated video. It was very simple. Reinstalling a good vent for the dryer took longer. But the new heating element didnt fix the problem. So I replaced the termal fuse which was also very easy but also didn't fix the problem. At that point I decided to replace the dryer. In the process of recovering parts from the old dryer I noted a thin film of lint stuck to the smaller of the two thermostats. So I'd recommend first inspecting and cleaning all of the parts in the parts list before ordering new parts. But then begin with the most common failing part and working down the list. If you have some test equipment like a voltmeter, ohmmeter, or multimeter that would be a plus in isolating faults. Still, I'm a fan of PartSelect and would come here for other parts.

pretty simple fix not much to it. If you are familiar with electrical work a dryer is just about as basic as it gets. Thermal fuse was bad, swapped it out and up and running again. It took me longer to get the dryer pulled out and cleaned up, than it did to replace the fuse. Wow was it diry back there!

The appliance can be turned on but motor won't start.

I opened up the instrument panel box using philips screw driver and found the repair instructions. Followed the symtom diagnostic page and found that if the machine can be turned on but motor not working then check thermal fuse or motor. Next, I unplugged the appliance and remove the back panel to locate where the thermal fuse and other parts per the diagram in the repair instructions. Using a volt meter, I removed the electrical plugs to the thermal fuse and check resistance (a 1 on the volt meter indicated that the fuse is open (or burned)). Removed the thermal and checked for part number and looked up the model and parts number on the internet. Took a chance and ordered the part. When the order arrived 3 days later, I just simply replaced it and put everything back to where they were. Hooked up the power supply and turned on the dryer. It works again!! One thing I found was that I needed to clean the air pipe since it was totally clogged and probably caused the machine to overheat and burn out the fuse.

Very simple. Removed rear panel, fuse and thermostat on exhaust vent was immediatly recognizable. Made sure entire vent was clean. However, the problem was NOT resolved. Now looking for an alternate answer...

These parts didn't fix the problem. Went to you-tube watch a video on how to repair a gas dryer step by step and which parts to replace. Found out we had replace the wrong parts and ordered the coils and now it works!!! Next time I will watch a video, first then order, this will save us time and money!

The dryer would heat up briefly and spin cold endlessly.

I removed the back cover on the dryer using a nutdriver, disconnected and removed the thermal (2 leads that are not-polarity sensitive), unmounted the cycling thermostat and transfered all 3 leads one by one as to not mix them up, installed, replaced cover and done. This did NOT solve the problem as no changes were noted. The only other possibility at this point is replacing the gas coils, or the entire gas assembly. The dryer still ignites but turns off about 20 minutes later and won't reignite unless the machine is left alone for about 30 minutes.
