It was a closet type washer/dryer combo. With little space to work I needed to know how to get at the heating element to test it. Was told the tumbler had to come out the front to expose the element. Made the job easy without having to figure that out.

Dryer stopped putting out heat.

Just want to say what a great company to order parts from, I ordered the wrong parts by mistake, broke the part trying to install the incorrect part, emailed customer service and they not only gave me credit for the wrong part I ordered but, also for the shipping...I will definitely be ordering again from this company

disconnected the dryer; cleaned the duct. I reconnected everything and started it up again and within seconds tripped the breaker.Decided probably the thermal limiter was faulty, so ordered new one from you. After it arrived I watched video, then removed the top and front, pulled drum to give me some workroom, replaced the limiter, reassembled in reverse order.I then reset the breaker, plugged the dryer in. Runs perfect.The drum was a challenge - so I used a wooden wedge to support from the front and opened the 12 by 12 rear port to access and reset the pulley cable assembly.

Follow instructions all most to the letter. In video it was stated to get an assistant to hold static / housing retainer in place to start screws. I put it in place and, used Duck Tape to hold it there while i started screws. Thanks for the deal on parts and, video. I would also suggest advising to check the nylon strips on felt at the front top. Mine were worn. But there was enough at the back of nylon to remove and, glue remainder in place almost as good as new. Again! ''THANKS!''

The only probelem was to take out the drum, because it was a washer and dryer combo. the dryer was on top, i did not have any room to pull out the drum

After removing the old drum glide there was tufts of felt and glue left behind. The DIY video (which inspired me to try this repair myself) says to use a scraper and wire brush to clean the drum edge. I decided to try a drill with a wire wheel. Worked great. The surface was shining clean in minutes.

Dryer Would Not Heat

I researched possible causes on line and watched a PartsSelect video on YouTube on how to test. I ended up misreading test results and ordered the High Limit Thermostat but subsequently realized problem was the Terminal Block. No problem, PartsSelect took back the Thermostat (I hadn't installed it) and shipped me the Terminal Block. My dryer was back up and running in less than 7 days from initial analysis to installation of Terminal Block. Instructions that came in confirmation email for installation were perfect and easy to follow. Total cost with new power cord from Home Depot was less than $50 vs a quoted service call of $175+ parts from local electrician.
