Dryer would not turn on

  • Difficulty: Easy

Dryer shut off during operation and had a burning smell. Dryer would not turn on after that. The PartSelect website helped me diagnose the problem as the thermal fuse blowing out. I bought a high limit kit from their website, and their step-by-step repair video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=tzEi3HpzLJA) made the repair simple. For about $25 I was able to repair a dryer that would have cost me hundreds of dollars to replace. Thank you, PartSelect!

First I check the conduction with a voltmeter of thermal fuse, high limit thermostate and the swith door. The thermal fuse was broked, I order the high limit kit for replace the fuse and the high limit thermostate too. I open the dryer using putty knift on the front. With screw driver uninstall the high limit thermostate and the heat wire to access at thermal fuse. Note that thermal fuse have white wires and the high limit thermostate have red wires. I install all back and my dryer work again. I recommend before close the dryer, vaquium all inside dryer. It was very easy. To me help very much the video that you show.

dryer would not start at all

I used a putty knife to push in clips to lift the top of the dryer off to gain access to the thermal fuse and the high limit device. The thermal fuse was close to the top and easy to do. The high limit part was a little further down the back side of the dryer and a little harder to get to, but watching the video online helped a lot. The most important part was fixing the root cause of the dryer. Lint. I empty the lint tray every single time I dry a load, however, after removing the front panel, I found 12 years of lint packed into the channel. (You may want to do this BEFORE your dryer goes out.) After removing the lint and replacing the parts the dryer works like new again, and it only took about 30 minutes! I am a 57 year old woman so if I can do this anyone can. The best part was that I ordered my part on a Tuesday morning and it was delivered the very next day! Great service!

Blower wheel broken

  • Customer: Wesley from Midland, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

UNPLUG DRYER!! Pry the top up with a screw driver. Removed 2 screws holding front panel on. After removing screws, I removed the two wires running to the door switch. The front panel then can be removed. There are many screws around the blower housing that have to be removed to bet to the blower wheel. Use pliers to remove blower wheel clamp. I used a flat screw driver to remove the retaining clip. Pull the old blower wheel off. I then had to use a piece of pipe with a rubber hammer to drive the new wheel on. I then used the pliers to put the clamp on the blower wheel. Then put the retaining clip back on the end of the shaft. I put the blower housing back together with all of the screws. The thermostat is located on the external of the blower housing plate. unplug two wires and unscrew two screws. The reason I had to replace was due to me not unplugging the unit before removing the thermostat. Put in new thermostat with two screws then reattach two wires to correct pins. I took a picture before removing to make sure I had the wires in the correct spots. Assemble the front panel and attached the wires to the door switch. Close lid, plug in dryer, and ready to use.

I came home from work to notice the dryer singing a different tune than usual. I opened the door and noticed that the tub wasnt turning. I popped the top of the dryer up to find a disentigrated belt. Fired up the computer and in a few minutes had ordered the $8 ($15 including shipping) replacement belt. 3 Days later took the shopvac and cleaned up the lint and broken belt pieces. Installed the new belt and was back in business with my 8 year old dryer. ** The only complaint comes from my wife who got her hopes up for a new front load washer and dryer** thanks partselect for saving my wallet in more than one way!

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.
