Bent slide on pedestal

  • Customer: Donald from Greenfield, WI
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 3 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
Note that the problem was with the pedestal, not the washing machine. In the process of attaching the two units together, the drawer in the pedestal is removed. When I tipped the assembly up, the slide slid out and locked horns with an object, bending the slide. The slide is an easy replacement. Just one screw holds it in place. A slot in the slide mates with a tab to hold the back side of the slide in place.

After receiving the part I pulled the dryer out for easy access. Used only a nut driver to remove back cover and the part to replace was easily identified. Then it took a little while to remove all the dust and other particles that had built up over the years. The actual replacement of the part only took a couple of minutes. Reattached the back cover and put back in place. Turned on dryer and I now had heat. Easy fix.

My wife and I thought our dryer was done and we were looking at a large replacement costs. We started googling and found this site and watched the video. We are were 99% sure it was the thermal fuse. We received within 2 days and thought we would be in there for over an hour. Turned it was less than 10 minutes, we watched the video clip on how to install on our laptop as we did it.

We will always be buying parts from this site and have told a ton of friends/family to check this site out.

It saved us so much money!!!!

no heat in the dryer

after removing the back panel (5 screws) i replaced the heating element, (about 15 minutes, after vacuuming all of the lint and dog hair), replaced the panel, but still no heat. removed the back panel again, and replaced the thermal fuse. (2 screws, 5 min.) still no heat, so on to the thermostats. (there are 2, both in easy reach). i replaced the one in the heating element housing first, as this made sense. (it has a red stripe across it, so they can't be confused), replaced one connector, which the new part requires, buttoned it up, and presto!! the dryer works just as new! all told, i have less than 100.00 with all of the new parts. the longest part of the whole thing was cleaning all the lint and debris out first, which you absolutely must do

No heat

An online help site lead me to believe the problem was the gas igniter. After ordering that and installing it I discovered that wasn't the problem. I took a look at the schematic which is in the electrical compartment and found that there is more than one thermal breaker. I found the other one, ordered and installed the part and had it running within 30 minutes. I had to access the back of the unit, remove the back cover with a socket wrench, unscrew the thermal breaker and re-install the new one with no special tools.

dryer door won't stay shut

I replaced the male end first hoping that a change in the female part would not be needed. Unfortunately no. I used needle nosed pliers to pry the male part out and pushed the new part in. The female part of the door catch was more difficult. I didn't do it in "textbook" form, but got the job done with pliers and a screwdriver. Worth every penny to fix correctly instead of rigging it. Do it!

Dryer wouldn't turn on.

First I pulled the dryer away from the wall, after which I disconnected the power and dryer vent. I then removed the eight screws holding on the back of the dryer. Next, I disconnected the two wires to the part and unscrewed the mounting screw. I then removed the bad part, replaced it with the new part, and reversed the above steps.

The door whould not close enough for the dryer to work.

Got my parts very quickly.
Popped out the old door latch with a screw driver and pressed in the new one.
Very simple.
Thanks Parts Select.

The dryer blew only cold air

I opened the front lower cover to get the schematics. Looked for the most probable part that was bad. Then traced wiring from the gas solenoid to find the thermal fuse.
I opened the back. Took the two wires off the thermal fuse and put my Ohm meter from terminal to terminal. As I got no reading, I ordered a new fuse. It took about 5 minutes to replace and button the dryer back up. This is the second time I have had to replace this fuse.

broken door handle

just a matter of removing 6 screws from the inside of the door, this allowing the front plastic part to which goes around the door to seperate from the metal door itsself. Then you have to remove the two screws that holds the handle on. very simple repair.

No heat in dryer

There was no heat but the dryer would operate properly in all other functions. I checked the ignitor (gas dryer) with a meter and it was okay. I traced the circut back and ended up at the thermal fuse and it was "open" I jumped it out and the dryer started to work. I knew the problem was the thermal fuse but more importantly why did it blow. Further investigation showed excessive lint in the duct. Needed to take the exhaust system apart and clean out the lint. also replaced the flexible dryer (too difficult to clean) and to make sure that I didn't over work the high/low thermostat and would be doing this repair again in the near future I replaced that also. Be careful and do not jump out the fuse and use the dryer as this will cause a fire. I did it to prove the problem only... Dryer works well again and we will probably get another 5 years out of it!

Dryer wouldn't heat

  • Customer: PAUL from ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

It took me 5 minutes to find PartSelect's site, read the comments about the most common problems and identify the solution. The exploded views were a great assist, as it wasn't obvious where the thermal fuse is located or which access panel to remove.

It took less than 5 minutes to remove the rear panel and install a temporary jumper to verify the blown fuse was the only issue. With the new fuse in hand, replair took another 5 minutes.

A word of caution to anyone replacing is fuse - I found that the exhaust vent pipe to the wall was full of lint and nearly blocked. This is a potential fire hazard. While enough air was passing through the flapper vent to make it look like it was OK, the exhaust resistance is what caused the overheating and made the fuse blow.

I spent more time cleaning out the vent pipe than replacing the fuse, for a total of 25 minutes. I strongly urge all dryer owners to physically inspect the exhaust duct annually.

PS Drying time has decreased by 30-40% since the repair.
