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.

Preface this by saying I'm not a good handyman. I love working with my hands, but I cannot cut straight, make angles, plumb, or do anything electric. I knew I had a gas dryer but I had to learn that it uses a burner not a coil. That said, armed with my trusty iPad, I located Part Select, watched a video or two, entered my problems into the correct fields, and made an educated guess based off of the results. Since I already had the front cover and the motor cover off the dryer and the 2 sensors were right there, I ordered both-why take the chance. I ordered Sunday evening and the parts arrived Tuesday around noon. By 1pm I was drying clothes. Feeling pretty cocky now, I'm going to try to hang gutters this weekend.

1) Unplug dryer from wall. 2) Remove bottom panel on front of dryer below door. There are 2 screws. You will need a 1/4" nut driver. 3) Remove 2 screws (same size) holding the clip in place at the front of the element housing. Then remove clip. 4) Pull housing and element forward. Will take some twisting and angling to get it out. 5) Make a diagram showing which wires go to what terminals. Then pull wires from terminals. (Now would be a good time to remove lint and trash or in my case that bank card I lost last year from bottom of dryer.) 6) Remove screw holding coil inside housing and pull coil from housing. Use pliers and some muscle. 7) Install new coil and replace wires, housing, and panel doing this process in reverse. For internal bias thermistor, while front panel is off, find the part inside. It is toward the center near the front of the dryer. There are 2 wires and 2 screws 1/4" hex heads. Remove wires, remove screws, and replace.

Found a YouTube video with step by step instructions for disassembling a Whirlpool Duet dryer. Though not the same model as mine it was close enough. The hardest part of this repair was figuring out how to pry apart the elctrical connectors but it's pretty simple once you get the hang of it. You also might want a little help taking off the door. It's not mandatory ( I'm a big guy and I managed it by myself) but having an extra pair of hands makes things easier. If you can take out screws and remember the order you took them out you should not have any problems. The actual pully assembly was held in my one bolt, easily replaced once you get access to it. If you don't want to change out the belt, removing the door is not necessary as you can get to the pully from the back side of the machine. But since you have it halfway disassembled already, you might as well go for it and not have to make a return visit. Total time including vacumning out all the lint from inside the dryer was three hours. Took my time and saved myself a few hundred dollars for sure.

I first came to the internet to resolve what was wrong. After finding the video I thought was correct I started. I used my volt/ohm meter to check the thermal fuse as instructed on the video and that was the problem. I ordered the new thermal fuse from PartSelect late in the day and it was in my hands the next evening. With in 20 minutes the dryer was doing what it was suppose to do. The hardest part was getting the back cover of the crier off and that wasn't to bad.

The repair was easy and very simple. With nut driver removed front cover. Noted the wiring set up and removed. Lifted heat tunnel up and pulled it from the case. Removed the old heating element and install new one. Reinstalled the heat tunnel reconnected the wires. Slide tunnel back into position. Replaced screw and you are done. I always pray and ask Jesus for his help and things always go well.

I was afraid I had to go in from the back panel, undo a million little bolts, after pulling the whole thing out far enough to get behind the dryer. Not so! I watched the installation video. I cannot get to the 220 plug easily so I turned of the switch at the breaker box. I opened the small panel on the front of the dryer under the dryer door. Loosened one bolt on a cover guard to expose the element. Unplugged the connection to the element and easily pulled out old part. Slipped in the new part, reconnected the little plug connections, closed cover panel.! Voila! Done! My Husband was amazed that I was done & we were ready to go again & my grand kids cheered for me!! 15 minutes or less instead of hours.

I tried all standard tricks: checking circuitry, switches, etc. Then I read other submissions on your site, which suggested this thermal fuse was the culprit on almost 50% of cases. I got yours in 2 days, installed in no time, easy as pie. One caution: it will take an entire day if you forget to close the dryer door completely.

Searched Internet for Dryer Model and problem, purchased the three items listed used in the heater element - long as I was replacing parts I was going to do them all...Unplug Dryer, Removed Back and Front Access panels using power driver with nut socket adapter... Lots of Dust Build Up in lower section of dryer, cleaned by hand, then vacuumed and the blew out with air from small compressor. Removed heater assembly and replaced All Three Electrical components, (Heater coil, High Limit, Thermal Fuse) Reinstalled heater unit and then closed up unit back panel and front panel. Plugged in, ran dryer front panel diagnostics - no errors reported, test dryer - dryer vent tube is now warm to the touch - the dryer working again.... (Suspected Bad Item: Thermal Fuse) Total repair time once parts in hand was about two hours, most time was spent cleaning out lint and dust to insure no fire hazard present

went thru all the electrical connections, finally checked the thermal fuse..it was the culprit. next time I start there. unlike older dryers, where one component gos such as the drum belt or the heating element and its only 2 years old. This thermal fuse shuts down the entire unit when it malfunctions
