I unplugged the dryer from the wall outlet and remove the two screws from the lint filter area, followed the instructions that were in the repair video and put the appliance back together and re=attached the power supply. It worked perfectly. Thanks so much for your service and instruction help.

Dryer wouldn't start.

I watched the video multiple times until I was comfortable. He made it look so easy. I'm convinced the dryer was using had been "prepped" to come apart and go back together easily. The reality for me: Great difficulty popping the cabinet top. It took every ounce of power to push in the hinges. Disconnecting the existing switch was difficult. I depressed in the catches on each side, but of course one at a time since I only have two hands. I tried various rigs to get both pushed in at once - nothing. Finally I watched a different vendor's video and the technique he used worked for me. Lastly, screwing in the new part is darn near impossible upside down to screw it in straight. The screws also wouldn't go in flush with the surface. I got them in well enough to hold, but that's it. The good news, the choice of part was correct and it fixed the problem. Had it now, I would have gone to Plan B and ordered a different part and paid another $9 shipping on top of the part. In my next life, I'm going to marry a appliance repairman.

Video showed 3 ways to remove the top section to access the switch. None of which worked on my unit. Instead there were 4 screws on the rear section of the control panel that had to be removed and then lift it past the top of unit to slide forward to remove top to access the switch after that all was the same as video.

I googled the main reasons why a dryer wont start. Ordered the suggested parts and went through them one by one. Replaced thermal fuse as it was said this was a main reason it wont turn on. Kept the new fuse in as I believe it was the original. Then I went to the door switch when I compared them I knew I had found the cause. I replace the door switch then plugged it back in and success. I took it a step a time. .

I followed the directions on your site. I pulled out the filter on the top of the machine. Then removed the two screws where the filter is located, I am not sure I would have found those screws had it not been for your directions. I then pulled up on the top of the machine by grabbing the sides near the front of the top, it came right up. I then raised it enough to place a broom handle to hold the top up so I could reach the switch. I removed the two screws holding the switch and then pulled the connector apart. I then replaced the switch with the two screws and plugged the connector back together. Removed the broom handle and closed the top and replaced the two screws I removed by the filter. Replaced the filter and started the machine running and opened the door and it turned off and the light came on. It took me about twenty minutes.

Lint Chute and Lint Trap Seals had Deteriorated

The on-line instructions were excellent; however, the man doing the demonstration used a brand new machine - not one where the old seals had melted and dried out and required serious cleaning before attaching the new seals. The new seals went on easily and I am very happy with everything about this task. I am also glad I now know what that lint chute looks like, so I'll do a better job of keeping it clean in the future.

Clothes getting hot, but not getting dry

  • Customer: barry from roswell, GA
  • Difficulty: Easy

Verified that the heater element was working; drum and contents were getting hot. Could hear the thermostat clicking on/off as the element started to glow. Drum stayed very steamy the entire time; consistent with no airflow. Fan motor was running, dryer vent/line were clear. Verified cold (not hot) air from the external vent. Seals had degraded to the point that the fan was not drawing air from the drum, but from inside the dryer cabinet at the lower seal (by the fan blades); hot air was escaping from the upper seal and was causing the dryer cabinet to get unusually hot. Installed these 2 seals, and the dryer is working perfectly now.

I Removed the rear panel. Then I used the instructions online to locate and test various parts and determined what was defective. I order the parts online and received them the next day. It took less than 30 minutes to do the repairs. The dryer works great.I will be using partselect.com in the future and would recommend them to anyone who is having problems with their appliance.

the lint chute assembly had corroded & would not accept the lint screen.

  • Customer: Richard from Paramount, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

I pulled thee dryer out from the wall, shut off the gas & disconnected the gas line & the air vent, I then removed the fasteners from the upper end of the lint chute assembly (accessible from the top of the machine). I then tipped the machine over on to its front side making the back fully accessible. After removing the back cover, I removed the remaining fasteners holding the lint chute assembly in place & removed the part. I then removed the assembly only to find that the seals were not included in the package even though I had specifically asked about the seal when I called in & place my order. The response to my question was " seals are included that is why it is called an assembly." The end result was that I had to use alternate material & fabricate my own seals in order to complete the installation. As a result a repair which should have taken no more that 30 minutes, took over two hours.
