Broken belt on dryer

This is a straightforward repair that you can do in an hour or less. Open the lint trap and remove the two screws. Use a screwdriver to pop up the top of the dryer. Remove two screws that attach the front panel. Now you can lift out the drum and then lift off the front panel. Clean out all the lint. Make sure the motor pulley turns smoothly. Tilt back the dryer diagonally to make the rest go easier. Loop the new belt around the drum (rubber side down) and reinstall the drum against the back wall of the dryer. Make sure the cloth liner fits perfectly around the ridge, with no folds so the drum rotates easily. Make sure the drum fits smoothly against the two rubber positioning wheels on the back wall. Position the new belt around the center of the drum. On the dryer floor, stand up the tensioner bracket. Tricky part -- thread the belt so it runs through the bracket and loops around the drive pulley on the motor, rubber side against the pulley. The belt should be tight, held by the tensioner. Reinstall the front panel so the opening aligns with the drum opening. Drop the top down, snap into place.and reattach the screws in the lint trap. Done!

I opened the top with a putty knife and removed the two connectors to the front cover. I didn't have any tester to check sensors so I replaced them all. That didn't work. So I changed the coils on the gas valve and that fixed it. It was a lot better then the price of a new DRYER. Thank you for your help

heat on then off then on

Initially diagnosed the failure mode as a faulty thermal fuse and when the fuse was replaced was encouraged to find the heat working...then it shut off again. After a period of time that the dryer was off the heat would come back on. After reviewing the site extensively I found a description of the failure mode similar to mine and determined to replace the 2-terminal & 3-terminal coils (kit is less expensive than either by itself). My older Whirlpool dryer needeed to have the top panel removed in order to get to the front panel screws and once the front panel was removed the coil assembly was pretty easy to identify. The retention "plate" was attached via screws that were a little tough to get to but an offset phillips screw driver did the trick. The coils were "keyed" in such a way that they would only insert one way to be properly oriented. So I've earned my appliance repair merit badge.

I was very pleased with the shipping speed, the belt arrived in less than 24 hours! The installation was very easy and if you need help the video on the belt info page should be helpful.

Easy repair; great video from your site. I was able to do the complete repair by myself and I am a 40 year old female that is not mechanical in any way. Dyer works like the day I bought it. Thanks

Google is your friend! I have gotten in the habit of searching the Internet for repair advice. From car to mower to fridge and now dryer. What I've learned is dryers are very simple machines and with some mechanical aptitude most folks can repair there own.

Dryer would not run

The most difficult element of the repair was diagnosing the problem. I use a multi meter and started working through the wiring (referring to the wiring diagram) and found that I had no 'continuity' through the heat fuse and high limit thermostat. Once I had that figured out, everything else was easy. I found the parts, although I could not get a good part number match for the thermostat. The replacement numbers did not agree exactly with the numbers printed on the part. I went forwards anyhow and the actual installation was simple and well documented, Thank You PartSelect. While doing the repair, I took the time to clean the vents of the dryer. I removed the front panel and cleaned lots of lint. I also checked the ducting out the rear of the dryer, shorting the duct to hopefully improve air flow. Everything is working well.

Drum stopped spinning

You pop the top of the dryer. Remove to hex screws which allow you to remove the front panel. Next you pull the drum off, snack the belt around the drum, motor and tension pulley and reverse the steps. The hardest part is getting the drum back in place without knocking the belt off the motor.

The dryer started smelling really hot and then it went dead

First of all i googled it on line to see what the problem could be and it took me to this website and there i was able to read what the problem was most likely and (that was a real help) so i ordered the part which was the high limit kit for about $33 including shipping and handling opened up the top of dryer and its right on top didnt take but about 5 minutes to change the part

The dryer would not turn on and power was available.

I had to lift up the top of the dryer. Remove the front panel and drum to get the the heating assembly. The instructions that came with the parts were helpful in knowing why and which parts to use (thermal fuse and high temp cut off switch). I replaced the belt as well because I had everything apart. The hardest part was the belt because there is only enough room for one arm and no ability to see only feel.

not enough heat

I removed the front lower panel and could access the parts easily. This model of dryer was a little tricky as to what needed to be removed to access the parts. It was easy to take off the flame sensor and the therminal gas valve and replace. I watched your video on changing these parts but it didn't help much as the model in your video was newer and the parts were not in the same location on my dryer. the top on my dryer could not be popped up it was held by screws accessed by working from the bottom panels up. It turned out I only needed to take off the bottom kick panel to replace the parts it needed. The dryer works fine and the information,you provided on your website about what parts cause this problem most of the time on this dryer helped me to order the correct parts.

Gas Dryer stopped drying clothes

The gas would light briefly then go out so the clothes were never heated. I googled the problem and found your website and read a few blogs describing the problem, ordered the coils, popped them in and presto it worked.

I replaced gas coils which in my case came as a set and that did the trick.
