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

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!

Since I was going to take the back off, I went ahead and replaced the thermal fuse, both thermostats, and the heater coil. I followed Steve's instructions and had all 4 parts installed in 30 minutes! It was so simple, I really have nothing helpful to add except to watch the VIDEOS. I would like to thank PartSelect for making this repair so easy for me. The Instant Repairman feature helped me find parts quickly! The videos, well, a big THANK YOU to Steve for the terrific repair demonstrations!!! Also, reading others reviews was very helpful. I am already telling others about this site, and I will be back (hopefully not too soon).

Using the video that is on your website on what and how to replace broken parts, we followed the same procedure. 1. Found the heating element in the back of the dryer after removing the cover panels. 2. Used a volt-ammeter to determine which part(s) was/were not functioning. 3. Used screwdrivers to disconnect/reconnect wires. 4. Closed panels.

The thermostate and one of the wires were burnt. Ordered a thermostate and re wired the connector to the wire. All I had to do was replace the thermostate and connect the wires to it. Took me probably 15 to do it all :)

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.

Installed both parts but still doesn't heat. Probably have to buy a dryer because a new element will be about $80. Your response and delivery time were great as were the instructions.

No Heat. Timer Wasn't Moving.

First I watched the videos to be sure these parts were easily accessible. After determining the heating element was the problem, I decided to change the other parts only because they were so simple to change. I paid just shy of $100 for parts and fixed the dryer myself, saving who knows how much from a service call. This was by far the easiest appliance repair I've ever done. Thank you PartSelect.

I watched the repair expert on you tube. Went to my dryer and took out the heating element, inspected it, and found a broken element wire. Ordered a new element and since I was in there I also replaced the high limit thermostat. Parts select made it easy and my dryer works great again. Thank you.

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.

Unplugged Dryer. Removed back panel of the dryer. Disconnected and removed the Thermal Cut Off switch and replaced. Disconnected and removed the High Limit Thermostat and replaced. Reinstalled rear panel of the dryer. Plugged in dryer. Operated dryer and checked for heat. Operation was proper and dryer works great.

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.

I didn't. I was out of town when the part arrived. I talked my 13 year old son through the process over the phone. No difficulties. Wife/mom very happy to have her dryer back.
