Ordered the fuse first hoping it was just that simple, watched the video for how to replace, first step was to take the back of the dryer off, well I order to take the back off I had to take off the Electrical Cord, as well as he top of the dryer. Only to find out he part I was replacing was not back there. Found the tech sheet attached within he dryer though, and as it turns out only needed to take he front bottom panel off. Without testing he continuity I was just giving this a shot, the Thermal fuse did no fix it, so I tried the high Limit Thermostat and Fuse kit still no luck. Took out the Element to find I was physically cracked in 2 pieces, replaced that and I was back up and running. And all parts were found in the bottom front panel of the dryer, so beware before you watch the video and take our whole dryer apart like I did.

First tried repairing the old idler by cleaning and lubricating the shaft. That lasted for about a week but the squealing returned. Ordered the part and had it in a few days. Replaced the idler wheel and it's been quietly running like new for several weeks now. Now wife thinks I'm Superman.

Dryer stopped heating

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I needed a schematic to know exactly where the heating element was located and to be sure of what the part looked like. I found the part and after watching the video on removing and installing the heating element decided to replace the High Limit Thermostat and fuse as well. I also read some of the other reviews. The part arrived in 2 days and I did have a little help removing the old one before the parts arrived. Since the dryer was ready for the new parts when they arrived, the install was easier. I had a little trouble balancing the flashlight to see well enough and realized it was easier to put the element in then reinstall the unit, it was a little tricky getting the element sleeve back into the slot, THEN screw the thermostat and Thermal fuse onto the element housing. Since everything was open, I vacuumed all the lint out that I could, hooked up the vent hose, plugged the unit in and pressed the button. I then basked in the glow of a working heating element and I was back in business!. Thanks for the video and help. I LOVE PartSelect.

Quit running after one to five minutes - consistently

Followed the repair tests followed in repairman's sheet found taped behind front lower panel. When into diagnostic mode (found on paper) and tested the top front control panel buttons. All checked out fine except when I opened the door it beeped and showed a 4E code. So per the paper Tested the Moisture sensors (two metal strips inside of dryer where lint screen is) test passed, only three things left for this issue per the manual. Wire harness from two metal strips, longer wires going up from that harness to electronic control board , and the ECB itself(found under top lid of dryer). Since did not have a meter, Replaced the lower wire harness first - no improvement. replaced ECB - works perfectly now. Saved $$$ vs a new dryer.

Had previously replaced the heater coil (purchased from PartSelect) and fixed the no heat problem. Should have taken advice given on this site and replace the thermostat and thermal fuse kit at that time. Since I knew how to remove the assembly it was easier this time. Just remove, unscrew the two parts and replace with the new ones. Reattach the wires and reinstall the assembly and it is now working again. Also vacumed the inside and trimed and replaced the exhast vent hookup for less restriction.

After trying to follow a very detailed description by another consumer, we googled our washer and found a site that showed step by step direction that took us through removing all panels and getting to the bellow easily. Not removing the proper panels, we found was making the job hard!I believe the site was applicance services...very helpful! Step by step literally!!Cost of parts through parts select reasonable.

I diagnosed the problem using the web page. It said that 60% of the people with my problem bought the Thermal Fuse. I unplugged the dryer AND cut the power at the fuse box. I used a screwdriver to remove the vent hose, a nutdriver to remove the back of the machine. The thermal fuse was right there. Removed the old one with a screwdriver, unplugged the wires from the old one and snapped on new one, and screwed it back in. Re-installed the back of the dryer and the vent hose and Whoila! It works like a champ.
