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

Thanks to Parts select it saved me hundreds of dollars. I dont know the exact age of my dryer as it was here when I bought the house. It stopped working and I thought, well here goes a few hundred dollars. I looked on line for possible fixes and found Parts select "thank goodness". There was discriptions and a video on how to fix a hight limit switch. I bought the parts was about 36 dollars with shipping, watched the video and fixed it in 15-30 minutes. simple, thanks again for having an awsome site. Dennis Pudoka, FL.

Opened the lid from the front. Took the high limit switch and bracket off. Removed the screw holding the element connection to the dryer out. This let the bracket holding the thermal switch come up. Being careful not to let the thermal switch fall out, removed it and replace it with the new thermal switch. hooked the two wires back on to it. Put the bracked on and pushed down, replaced the screw. I also replaced the high limit switch, put it back on and connected the two wires to it. Closed lid and tested.

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.

The project was rather simple and saved the price of a new dryer! After lifting the dryer top the most difficult job was replacing the lower thermostat. It was in a relatively tight area that my hand did not fit into easily. The actual time spent on the repair was 35 to 40 minutes.

From the description of the symptoms on the site and what part fixes those symptoms I was able to determine what part I needed. The video was very easy to follow and understand it was very helpful. Hands down the best parts website I’ve ever come across.

Used the putty knife to pry open the front of the top cover. Removed the retaining screws securing front cover to each side. Lifted front panel off bottom hooks and holding drum, removed front cover. used wood block to hold drum in place. removed broken belt and belt tension spring. Keeping the rubber side of the belt against the drum, threaded belt through the tension spring onto the drive motor flywheel. Tilted dryer backwards to hold drum in place while removing wood block. Assembled front and top in reverse order. Used pressure to secure top to spring clips.

Watched video and removed old fuse. Tested with ohm meter which showed it was bad. Very very easy to replace. Video shows everything you need to know. Remember to open front panel of dryer and clean lint system! Extreme build up of lint causes dryer to over heat! Fantastic web site with all info needed to complete repairs! Thank you for all the help.

Belt Broke

  • Customer: Jeffrey from Grantsville MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Had an idea how the repair would go. The video is a great tool for someone not mechanically inclined. Easy fix and will save from paying a repair person. Suggestion .... put a small block of wood (or something simular) under the drum when you pull the front cover forward to save from having the drum drop down making sure the back seal is still seated and in place. No big deal and easily fixed if it pulls away.

I felt the belt had broken since the unit was still running. I went on-line looked at some you tube movies to get some idea what to do. Was very helpfull. Found on-line how to get the part forb this nearly 20 year old dryer. Had the part shipped overnight, was able to track it. Followed your innstallation instruction, With the heavy rubber bands hooks at both ends it was easy. Never done this before, sure saved a good amount of money.

Followed the parts select You tube video. Was helpful. Note the Ignitor kit is very sensitive. We didn't need an ignitor right now but purchased one in case the other 2 parts didn't help the problem. We took the ignitor ( wrapped in a bag) out of the packaging and it snapped in half without even touching the sensitive end. Note handle with extreme care.

Dryer stopped in the middle of a cycle

Went online to see if this was a common problem... found the Part Select site... watched the short repair video... thought I could give it that a try, if it worked I just saved $150.00 bucks! Sent for parts, got them in two days! The repair was quick. I bought a nutdriver for the task but it wasn't a magnetic bit...get a magnetic nutdriver! Those small screws can get away from you. I had to slowly unscrew the screws and catch them with a telescopic magnet. I was washing a load during the dryer repair in hopes the repair worked..it did and I(Mr.Mom)completed 4 loads that morning.
