No repair. Just replaced the screens in the dryer and they slide in and out to clean. The felt gets worn fast.

dryer would not turn on

found door switch was ng, replaced however the new part would not fit like the original. I had to use part of the old switch to make it work. It seems as if there was a piece missing from the new replacement part. There was no way it could have worked they way it was recieved. The door switch needs some sort of stand off spacer in order to match the original part. Lucky for me I saved the old part.

Followed the instructions and really quite easy to fix. I didn't know why dryer wouldn't turn on but went with the odds that the thermal fuse was the problem-- and it was. Once I got the part it was back together and running in less than 30 minutes!

Dryer stopped heating

Using information found on this site, I was able to quickly locate the two bolts on the lower front panel of the dryer to get at the heating element. Once I removed the panel, I was able to use a multi-meter to determine that the heating element was the issue as the resistance reading was infinite opposed to the expected 10 ohms. When the replacement part arrived, I then re-accessed the heating element to remove it. I removed two bolts from the front deflector to gain access to the heating element (after opening the lower panel) and also removed a third bolt that held the heating element in. Once those were removed, I was able to remove the old heating element which was indeed bad as the wire was broken. I did find that it took a little effort to remove the old heating element. It was quite firmly placed in its location however once I put enough effort into it, it came out quite nicely and the replacement element went in quickly.

Removed two small screws on door edge, pop out broken part, insert new part, replace screws. Took 2 minutes 18 seconds. Nice to have various door catches in the Kit. This was a repair on a 1979 Whirlpool Dryer. Great price & service!!

The videos really make it easy. I put my laptop on the washer next to my dryer and proceeded step by step. I also found the video that mentioned about the screws that may come loose on the baffles. I found several loose screws on the baffles which I tightened and I also found the Drum hole plug loose, so I also tightened the plug. Reassembled the unit and has been working like new since.

Simply slid new idler wheel on then popped thr tri ring on. The belt replacment was the hardest thing which was also easy. I think pulling the dryer away from the wall was the most difficult thing.

Upon receipt of the new vent kit, I removed the dryer from its location and took it in to the garage. This facilitated a roomier work space. The directions were easy to follow and the work to be performed was very easy in this setting.
