  • Customer: Calvin from Newport NC
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Tools and materials:

#2 Philips head screw driver
Standard flat-tip screw driver
1/4" nut driver or ratchet
1/4" drive sockets: 1/4, 5/16
Something 3-4 inches thick to wedge under drum for support (i.e. scrap 4x4, soap bottle, books)

Replacement Procedures:

1. Unplug dryer from wall outlet
2. Pull out lint screen
3. Remove 2 Philips screws attaching lint trap to dryer top
4. Lift hinged dryer top panel near front and lean it back on wall. You may need to pry between side panels and top with flat-tip screw driver to get it started.
5. Disconnect plug from dryer door switch near front
6. Remove two 1/4" and two 5/16" hex screws inside front panel near top.
7. Open dryer door and lift front panel straight up to disengage tabs from slots near bottom of front panel.
8. While supporting drum with one hand, lift front panel and set aside with other hand.
9. Slip replacement belt around drum with ribs facing drum and position it where old belt left its mark.
10. Wedge something under drum to support it while installing the belt.
11. Re-position tensioner in two slots in bottom panel just in front of motor. On my model the bend in the spring will be on the right side with the idler pulley to the left, when viewed from the front.
12. Ensuring the belt isn't twisted, thread a small loop of it through the opening in the tensioner just below the pulley.
13. With the left hand, push against the tensioner spring while working the loop over the drive pulley.
14. While supporting drum with one hand, remove whatever you put under the drum to support it.
15. Replace front panel by aligning the slots with the tabs near the bottom and lowering it into place.
16. Carefully slip the drum opening over the flange on the front panel and replace hex screws.
17. Slowly roll the drum in one direction or the other until the belt aligns and centers itself.
18. Re-connect the plug for the dryer door switch.
19. Lower the dryer top and press until it snaps back into place.
20. Replace philips screws to secure lint trap and replace lint screen.
21. Plug dryer back into wall outlet, close door, set to dry, and press start.

Dryer would not turn off when door was opened. Also the light was not working. The cause, per your website said over 70% of the time, this was due to a broken door switch.

Removed rear panel and replaced sensor. Sad thing is this was not the problem.It was the coil valves! They are a $20 part together, and I wish I would have replaced them first! There is two of them that are on the main valve for the gas! Remove the front cover of machine. Make sure the gas is off , remove the bracket holding the valves in and this it! Quick simply repair that is where I should have started!

Thermal Cut-Off Kit (279816) was the wrong part for our Whirlpool Dryer Model. The thermal cut-off replacement part did not match the incumbent part. Before ordering this kit, I would recommend homeowners remove the back of the dryer and verifying this kit would work on their dryer. In our situation, it was a fuse that had to be replaced. Although your kit did not help or address my problem, I found the buying experience and the DIY reassurance to be positive. Hopefully the refund process will be equally positive. Thank you.

Thermostat had no continuity.

I was able to make the repair by following the online video that parts select had posted. Within no time I had my dryer up and running. So easy even an 8 year old could have done it. I do recommend that you test every part with a multimeter to find out which part may be malfunctioning. Remember when testing with a mutimeter at its lowest setting in ohms,if a part you test has continuity the numbers on the meter will fluctuate. If a certain part does not have continuity the multimeter will remain at 0 or 1. What this basically means is that the part(heating element,thermostat,etc)is your problem because it has no continuity.

Dryer would not heat

Dryer had no heat, my husband used a meter to check the current and the part we needed had no current. So we ordered the correct part, it took a few days to come then when UPS brought it, he hooked it up and put dryer back on and the dryer heated right up. The service from your company was above and beyond, Thank you, emails, tracking and fast service. We really appreciate your company who came through for us. The parts are authentic parts too. Thank you for having Paypal as a way to pay for the parts. It is the only way I pay for items on line.

Dryer was getting too hot.

I reviewed the on-line video (which was very good by the way) and read the instructions that came with the thermal cut-off kit. Replacement of the upper thermostat was a piece of cake, very straight-forward; just remove the old & replace with the new. The instructions for replacing the lower thermostat were a little confusing because my dryer did not have the orange wire coming from the wiring harness, but after looking carefully at the old thermostat and how it was connected, I finally figured out how the jumper wire was to be connected and successfully installed the lower unit. Bottom line...the dryer works like new. Much cheaper than calling the repairman! Thanks PartSelect!

Dryer would run but very little heat

Watched the repair video once, it was real informative and easy to follow. The repair took about 30 minutes to complete. The video went step by step. Had no problems what so ever. Made the reapir and turned the dryer on and let it run for a few minutes and once again had all the heat I needed to make it operate correctley. I recomend that once you see your dryer is not dring your clothes like it once did, replace these parts. I let this go on for a year thinking my wife was putting way to many clothes in the dryer. It was not that at all. No telling how much money we could have saved on our electric bill by replacing these parts sooner. $30 dollars for the parts, I bet we spent that much a week on extra drying cycles. What used to take 2-3 cycles to dry now only takes one cycle. Runs just like it did when we purchased it.I will buy from this site again, easy to use all the information you need to make the repair and prompt shipping. Awesome site.

turned off circuit breaker to dryer. pulled out from wall and turned.had to remove vent tube to facilitate moving the unit.took off back panel with socket.popped connecting wires off old hi-limit thermostat. took off old hi-limit thermostat, put on new one.reattached connecting wires.(they clip in and out.) screwed back panel on.turned unit back into position, popping vent tube back into unit.flipped circuit breaker back on.IT WORKED! didn't need to replace thermal cut-off, that was still working, but came in a kit with the thermostat.the worst part was diagnosing the problem and figuring out how to use the multi-function meter i had on hand.such a good feeling to fix it yourself and pretty inexpensively!part arrived 2 days after ordered!helpful to have 2 people to move dryer,hold pieces,hold back panel in place when reattaching.but could be done by one person.
