I put in the symptoms and was told that 66% of the time it was the high limit thermostat and fuse. I ordered the part and watched the instruction video. The configuration of the dryer was exactly as shown in the video so the installation went very smooth. The dryer has been working perfectly ever since.

I went on this site and started to search for possible parts that I thought I could change out that would make my dryer run after having changed out my time that wasn't broken (lol). I stubbled across the section that had troubleshooting tips on it . Wow I couldn't believe my dryer was on there!!! So I looked at the number 1 problem most people had with this model dryer and it was the high limit kit. So I figured for $22.00 what would it hurt so I ordered it and it got to me in 2-3 days and it was soooooooooo easy to change . I couldn't believe I was thinking of buying a new dryer . My old dryer has been drying clothes ever since and no problems . I owe it all to this site . Thanks guys at partselect and everyone else out there that took the time and left comments . It saved me $500.00 that I didn't have to spend after the holidays . You guys are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

I drilled two holers in the side of the cabinet 1 inch apart. I put them at the same height as the tensioner spring. I put the string through 1 hole and around the tensioner. I pulled the string through the other hole and had my son hold the tensioner back while I reached in and lined up the belt on the tensioner while my son let out the string slowly.

Open lid as seen on the video instructions..flat screwdriver is fine ..just make sure u pull up the lid hard since it might be a little tough to lift....follow same instructions as the video, however only part I have to tweak is...it's hard to unplug the socket to the fuse so just use flat screwdriver to losses the connectors so that u can pull it out easily...

After getting on-line to your site we looked up what the problem could be after receiving the dryer from a friend to transfer from electric to gas to save money. First we thought it to be the ignitor and after receiving it so quickly it still didn't work so went to your site again and found the Flame sensor. They were both defective and now it works wonderful!!! Your site also explains what and how to repair the appliance, which my husband appreciated! We are glad you contacted us because your site did not show that we could send you and e-mail Thanking your company for the excellant service we received. Your prices can't compare to other companies either, we were amazed on the differences. When you say the next day delivery, you mean the next day!!! Thankyou and you are now in my Favorites if ever needing parts for other appliances we own.
