Dryer took multiple cycles to get clothes dry

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Repair was easy once I figured out how to open the panels (that took some doing since some online videos had me looking for screws rather than just using a puddy knife or flat head screwdriver to release the top cover... no screws). Once opened up, it was easy to find the thermastat and hi-limit parts, as well as the coils. Replacement is simple using phillips head screwdriver.

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...
