This turned out to be easier than I thought. I opened the access door on the front of the dryer after unplugging the dryer and turning off the gas. I reached in just inside the door with a short-handled phillips head screwdriver and removed the two screws holding the two coils in place. The screws were pretty tight and a bit difficult to get loose but after serveral attempts they finally broke loose. Once I removed the plate that covered the two coils they just slipped right off, much easier than I thought. I removed the electrical connections then attached the wires to the new coils and slipped them back on their respective pins. I reattached the "cover", then plugged the dryer back in and turned the gas on and started it up. The flame fired right up, much stronger than before I replaced the coils and of course the flame stayed on. Problem solved. Repair was really pretty simple with the diagnosis being the biggest problem.

I unplugged the dryer then loosened the screws on the top and inside front, took the front off, I didn't need to unplugged the socket wiring attached to the door. Removed the drum (it came right off) wrapped the new belt around the drum, fed the belt through the tension flange and looped it over the pulley. Then rotated the drum a few times by hand to line everything up then put everything back together. It works fine now.

Dryer would not turn on

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!

Checked heating element and it glowed so I replaced the ceramic gas valve regulators. 4 screws to take front off the dryer and 2 screws to replace part. Couldn't have been easier but I wouldn't have been able to do it without watching the video first.

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.

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
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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!
