Dryer was not putting out any heat. Clothes were still wet after completing a full cycle

I checked all of the most commonly affected parts (as described on this site) with an ohmmeter (My first time but very easy to use). The only exception was the heating coil but this appeared to be working fine. The cycling thermostat showed resistance so I ordered a new one here. Replaced it and now the drying is working like new! The informational youtubes, diagnosis, purchase and repair only took me an hour. Never tried fixing an appliance myself before but so satisfying! $25 dollars and convenient timing is much better than the $350 I spent to have an appliance repairman fix my washer.

Replacing the cycling thermostat went really fast and easy. Unplug the dryer. Remove the 6-8 hex-head screws holding the back panel in place. The thermostat location is in the lower left. below the black discharge air duct. Note the location and/or tag the wires connected to it. Pull off the wires and remove the screw holding the thermostat in place and remove it. Reverse the procedure for installation of the new thermostat. Where this got tricky was it did not solve the problem. A strict diagnosis based on the electrical schematic alone would have, and did, indicate a faulty thermostat, i.e. on that was not opening. However, what I found was surprising. The heating element coil had broken and part of it had "welded" to the casing, grounding it and effectively turning the 240V heater into a 120V heater. This allowed the heater to provide heat (low heat). However, the timer motor needs 240V to operate and since one leg of the heater was grounded the timer could not get 240V when the thermostat cycled off. Replacing the heating element solved the problem.

first I unplugged the dryer. Then I removed the back of the dryer with a 1/4" nut driver. with the back off using the same 1/4" nut driver I removed the one screw that holds the cycling t-stat slowly remove the t-stat and take one wire off at a time and plug it onto the new t-stat once all wires are replaced. place the t-stat back in and secure with the screw. Then put the back of the dryer back on. put the dryer vent hose back on. plug in and away you go. repair done. If that doesn't fix it. Then the next step is probably to check the gas valve coils. That is a little more difficult repair but not to hard.

unplug,disconect vent, remove the back, use the ohm meter test the thermal cut-off , test the heating element, test heat limit switch. ( that now comes as part of the cut off kit ) I tested the cycling thermostat but did not know the values so i ordered it as well. Did not need it after compairing the old to the new. every thing should show compleat circut except the cycling thermo's two center contact that should be around 8000 ohm. very easy repair and recieved the parts in two days. Watch the video.

I followed the repair instruction video from the web site and the repair went just like the video. Before I viewed the video, I didn't even imagine I could make this repair myself. The replacement switch was exactly the same as the original from the factory. Everything went well and it was a pleasant experience. Our dryer is working just fine now.

The door switch was not clicking on & off & I thought that was the problem. Went on line to find out how to get the switch out. I then removed the switch got the part # & ordered the new switch. The switch was sent by Fed Ex & delivered the day after I ordered it, I installed it the same day & the dryer is now operating.

Dryer stayed on when door opened/would not start

My dryer started staying on when I opened the door to check the clothes, which I adapted to. Over the next few weeks, the dryer would not start at all. The website was very helpful in determining the possible parts needed to make the repair. The video shown was spot on and very helpful with its instructions on access to the part and replacing the part. The most time it took for me was cleaning behind the dryer and trying to remove the existing switch. I kept trying to squeeze the tabs on each side to get it past the tab and that wasnt working for me. Finally I took a small flat screwdriver and gently lifted the plastic on the switch up over the tab and that allowed me to pull and remove the switch easily. The whole time from start to finish for me was 45 minutes. Not bad for a 50 year old lady :) I have to say that this whole process has giving me alot of confidence in making basic appiance repairs. I have my partsselect.com magnet proudly displayed on my dryer and will not hesitate to use them again in the future.

dryer stopped working

Got the info from PartSelect that the door switch might be the problem, which confirmed my suspicions (as the dryer had lately been failing to stop when the door was opened), ordered the door switch (which had arrived in good time, BTW), installed the part after figuring out that the top panel of the dryer is fixed in place with the two screws accessible in the filter door opening. Put it all back together (that is, re-fixed the top panel with the two screws I'd had to remove), plugged it in, fired it up, ascertained that the repair had been successful, expressed appropriate thankfulness to God for an easier-than-imagined repair, cracked a celebratory brewed product, and commenced working through a hefty few piles of neglected laundry.

removed 2 screws by the lint collector, lifted top and disconnected the door switch, removed old switch and replaced it with the new one, screwed it back in and reconnected it, closed lid and reattached the screws by the lint collector-done!
