Dryer would heat up at startup but not stay hot for long. Took forever to dry clothes. Started smelling a very slight gas leak about a week before the problem started. I suspect the coils have been going lame for quite some time. The dryer heats up like it was new.

Downloaded a schematic of the dryer controls. Watched a UTUBE video of how to remove the front panel of a Maytag Performa dryer. It was pretty easy. Consulted your website and found out that bad coils are typical of the symptoms 46% of the time. I have bought parts from you before and happy with results.

Followed troubleshooting steps. Checked thermal fuse (shorted)- OK. Checked igniter (about 70 ohms) - OK. checked flame sensor - (open) BAD (should read shorted). This part is normally shorted then opens when the igniter gets hot causing it to open and thus turns on the gas flow. An open flame sensor does not permit the igniter to turn on.

Disconnected dryer main power supply from wall socket. Opened dryer top,Thermal Fuse is mounted on the Heating Element support bracket on the upper left hand side of the back wall of the dryer. Disconnected wires from damaged Thermal Fuse. Removed hex bolt securing Thermal Fuse Bracket with a nut driver for easier access. Pull up on Thermal Fuse support bracket and remove. When reinstalling Thermal Fuse bracket be sure and line up securing clips with the slots on the Heating Element bracket. Once these are alinged push down until Thermal Fuse Bracket is secure and proceed installing the hex bolt to finish installation. Reconnect both wires and dryer should be ready for operation.

Watched how-to video provided on PartSelect website. Most time was spent cleaning out the cabinet of lint and other debris. I found over 5 bucks in loose change! I Found pulling the belt over the motor pulley to be the trickiest. Note: my dryer will be 30 years old come this September. I wonder how many more years I'll get out of it!

i checked the power cord to be sure it was plugged in properly. i checked the thermal fuse in the front. i checked the thermostat fuse. i checked the heater element circuit and found infinite ohms. i checked kept the front cover up and watched that the heating element never came on. that confirmed my decision to buy the heating element. i installed a new one along with the thermostat that came in the kit. problem solved! my dryer is working again and everyone is happy again.

It wasnt to bad,its way easy for people with small hands its a tight fit for larger hands that was my only problem.After putting the dryer back in service it still did not heat correctly so I pulled the lint catcher out and the vent hose off the back and blew it out with an air compressor my God what a mess it was plugged bad should have had a fire so please look at doing the same with yours if its an older dryer.

Can't stop laughing about the mistake I almost made, before I even looked on internet I called Sears and scheduled a repair appointment, $80.00 just to have someone come out and tell me what my problem was not to repair it but to tell me whats wrong. And I told them the belt had broken I heard it when it snapped. Long story short version I found your website and entered appliance information, found part for $15.00 but also found on-site video clearly making the needed repair. Clear step by step instructions taking only 8 minutes looked very easy so I took a chance ordered the part two days later part arrived so I went into basement armed with laptop and tools. MAN it was easy.... too easy ....worked out fine video was spot on. Thanks you guys are a great company

Dryer was making a noise upon starting and periodically in each cycle. My husband took off the front panel and discovered the blower wheel was breaking apart. I went online and found this site, ordered, and it arrived a couple of days later. Very easily installed with the aid of a rubber mallet to push it firmly against the connecter point in the dryer.
