I ordered the Thermal Fuse, as it appeared to be the problem. A friend suggested that as long as the price was fairly reasonable, I should go ahead and get two of them and keep one for later. I ordered/paid for two of them. I put the Thermal Fuse in, and when I attempted to turn the dryer on, it ran for about 5 minutes, at a very hot heat, dried the towels, and then would not come on again. I thought it had kicked the circuit breaker, but after checking, found it hadn't. I watched the youtubes.com again and found that there were three other parts that it could possibly be. I ordered them, and replaced all of them. One of them had 4 prongs but two on the new one. I left two wires off, and sure enough, it would not run. I borrowed an ohm meter, and found out my old part was still good, but that in the process it had blown the Thermal Fuse, of which I just happened to have an extra, and after installing it, it is now in perfect running order. The total repair was about $80-100, rather than a $75.00 bill for service and heaven only knows for the parts at the repairman's price! Thanks youtube, Parts Select and my friend for his advice!

Watched several videos online and was suggested that the thermal fuse was bad, so i replaced it but no fix. So i checked the previews Q&A from other costumers and watched the videos on how to replace different parts. I first looked thru the peep hole on the bottom left part of the dryer and saw the igniter glow for about 10 sec every minute but no flame would start. So i replaced the igniter, the flame sensor, and the coils all at once. I know thats not the proper way to troubleshoot something but i was gonna take the drum out and everything so mind as well replace them all. Dryer works like new and dont have to listen to the wife complaint anymore!!!

First I unplugged the dryer. Took back off of dryer using nutdriver.Locating the thermal fuse, I replaced with the new one, then took cover off the heating element area and replaced it. This sounds like a pretty simple procedure to replace these parts, and with the help of the PartSelect diagrams, it became a simple task. I am not at all mechanically inclined, but I always look at instructions when assembling anything and this was easy!!

Extremely easy! you can do this too. Just watch the video and have the few basic tools the video suggests. I am not skilled in repair at all. This part was shipped very fast and everything I needed was on the site. The hardest part was cleaning up the lint, seriously. Don't spend $100+ for a repair person to come to your home. This task is simple for anyone, any skill level.

We followed the instructions on the video step by step. The repairs was very easy. I'm glad I did not pay the repair person 4x the amount I spent on just parts and delivery. DIY was the best option especially compared to how much money we saved.

Learned that my Kenmore dryer was actually a Whirlpool model. Removed kick plate in front of dryer. Removed the cover to the blower wheel. Cleaned out Dryer with vacuum cleaner. Used a multimeter to check for continuity on all thermostats, fuse, and heating element. Decided it was the cycling thermostat. When ahead and replaced the fuse at the same time. Checked out the installation video on this site, wwwPartselect.com ( it was very helpful in understanding how to remove the cycling thermostat - needle nose pliers helps in pulling of the connect wire clips - knuckle buster). Ordered next day delivery. The parts were on my front door early next morning FEdEX ( i live in the very corner of the NW US). Nice!

Easy to follow videos on your site made this repair a breeze. I ended up having to replace the high temp cutoff as well but for 60 bux my dryer works like new. The repair man wanted $100 just to come look at it. Could not have done of without the easy to follow video.

Ordered the parts, figuring it was either the heating element or fuse. Removed back of dryer, replace both parts, and now working great! Thank goodness I didn't have to purchase a brand new dryer! We almost did!!! We spent less than $90.00 and our dryer works like new! Thanks Parts Select!!

Followed the instructions and really quite easy to fix. I didn't know why dryer wouldn't turn on but went with the odds that the thermal fuse was the problem-- and it was. Once I got the part it was back together and running in less than 30 minutes!
