Had previously replaced the heater coil (purchased from PartSelect) and fixed the no heat problem. Should have taken advice given on this site and replace the thermostat and thermal fuse kit at that time. Since I knew how to remove the assembly it was easier this time. Just remove, unscrew the two parts and replace with the new ones. Reattach the wires and reinstall the assembly and it is now working again. Also vacumed the inside and trimed and replaced the exhast vent hookup for less restriction.

After trying to follow a very detailed description by another consumer, we googled our washer and found a site that showed step by step direction that took us through removing all panels and getting to the bellow easily. Not removing the proper panels, we found was making the job hard!I believe the site was applicance services...very helpful! Step by step literally!!Cost of parts through parts select reasonable.

I diagnosed the problem using the web page. It said that 60% of the people with my problem bought the Thermal Fuse. I unplugged the dryer AND cut the power at the fuse box. I used a screwdriver to remove the vent hose, a nutdriver to remove the back of the machine. The thermal fuse was right there. Removed the old one with a screwdriver, unplugged the wires from the old one and snapped on new one, and screwed it back in. Re-installed the back of the dryer and the vent hose and Whoila! It works like a champ.

Preface this by saying I'm not a good handyman. I love working with my hands, but I cannot cut straight, make angles, plumb, or do anything electric. I knew I had a gas dryer but I had to learn that it uses a burner not a coil. That said, armed with my trusty iPad, I located Part Select, watched a video or two, entered my problems into the correct fields, and made an educated guess based off of the results. Since I already had the front cover and the motor cover off the dryer and the 2 sensors were right there, I ordered both-why take the chance. I ordered Sunday evening and the parts arrived Tuesday around noon. By 1pm I was drying clothes. Feeling pretty cocky now, I'm going to try to hang gutters this weekend.

Dryer not heating

1) Unplug dryer from wall. 2) Remove bottom panel on front of dryer below door. There are 2 screws. You will need a 1/4" nut driver. 3) Remove 2 screws (same size) holding the clip in place at the front of the element housing. Then remove clip. 4) Pull housing and element forward. Will take some twisting and angling to get it out. 5) Make a diagram showing which wires go to what terminals. Then pull wires from terminals. (Now would be a good time to remove lint and trash or in my case that bank card I lost last year from bottom of dryer.) 6) Remove screw holding coil inside housing and pull coil from housing. Use pliers and some muscle. 7) Install new coil and replace wires, housing, and panel doing this process in reverse. For internal bias thermistor, while front panel is off, find the part inside. It is toward the center near the front of the dryer. There are 2 wires and 2 screws 1/4" hex heads. Remove wires, remove screws, and replace.

Broken door handle

  • Customer: Charles from Escondidio, CA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Although there were several diagrams available online discussing how to reverse the door direction nothing was available telling you that the door needed to be completely taken apart to replace the door handle. The screws holding the door handle are inside the door. Easy once you know that. I took the door off (following the door reversal directions) then took the screws holding the door together apart. It took a bit to take the broken pieces inside the door out because they have been exposed to such high heat for so long. Take your time and have patience so you don't break something else:)

Grinding and squeaky noise coming from dryer

Found a YouTube video with step by step instructions for disassembling a Whirlpool Duet dryer. Though not the same model as mine it was close enough. The hardest part of this repair was figuring out how to pry apart the elctrical connectors but it's pretty simple once you get the hang of it. You also might want a little help taking off the door. It's not mandatory ( I'm a big guy and I managed it by myself) but having an extra pair of hands makes things easier. If you can take out screws and remember the order you took them out you should not have any problems. The actual pully assembly was held in my one bolt, easily replaced once you get access to it. If you don't want to change out the belt, removing the door is not necessary as you can get to the pully from the back side of the machine. But since you have it halfway disassembled already, you might as well go for it and not have to make a return visit. Total time including vacumning out all the lint from inside the dryer was three hours. Took my time and saved myself a few hundred dollars for sure.

Ddryer was runing however not putting out any heat

I first came to the internet to resolve what was wrong. After finding the video I thought was correct I started. I used my volt/ohm meter to check the thermal fuse as instructed on the video and that was the problem. I ordered the new thermal fuse from PartSelect late in the day and it was in my hands the next evening. With in 20 minutes the dryer was doing what it was suppose to do. The hardest part was getting the back cover of the crier off and that wasn't to bad.
