Well it took me longer to get the dryer apart and than it did to get it back together... Well I opened it up it was obvious I had burned up the motor you couldn't even see it for all the lint that was built up around it... And the hardest part was removing the fan from the motor shaft, I didn't realize it was plastic and sort of mangled it getting it off so I went ahead and replaced it as well. The hardest part of the whole repair was removing and replacing the clips that hold the motor in place and there didn't seem to be any trick to it, I used a pair of channel locks and a little muscle to get them off and back on everything else was a breeze! I recommend checking the exhaust pipe at least once a year to make sure air is flowing freely to prevent the lint build up inside and even more often if you have a long run. This should prevent having this problem again...

Motor was tight, very hard to turn by hand. take the back motor mount strap off and you will be able to put an adjustable wrench on the shaft of the blower. you should be able to put vice grips on the pulley end and turn motor counter clock wise (CCW) to let handle of vice grips rest against the bottom of the machine and turn adjustable wrench CCW to turn off blower wheel. However, the one I did, the wheel was so tight I ended up having to break the blower wheel down small enough so I could pull the motor out. remove the front motor mount strap and pull the motor out. Install the new motor wheel and motor in the revers order. Set motor in place, install front motor mount strap, put blower wheel in from the back of the machine and start treading on the motor shaft. Then,from the front, tighten the blower with wrenches turning clock wise and put machine back together. Always unplug machine whenever working on it. If you go to Whirlpool web site there is a step by step video that will walk you through this entire process.

I'd replaced the heating element on this dryer before, and I figured that was the same issue this time; however, once I opened the element container, I found no broken wire in the element. I verified this by a continuity test. So, it had to be either the fuse or the thermostat. I ordered the thermal cut-off kit, which had both the fuse and high limit thermostat and I replaced them by removing the wiring, then removed the devices (a couple of screws on each). Since I had the kit already, I just replaced them both. I'd replaced the heating element when I was inside the first time. After replacing the back of the drier, I reinstalled the vent pipe (which was the most difficult part) and returned the dryer to its closet. The dryer immediately started up and heated. I've replaced the element twice before (easy job) but this time I also had to replace a bad fuse/thermostat. After 20 years of service, I figure somethings just wear out, and it's usually the element. Now it had a new fuse and thermostat, too.

We only had to tilt the dryer enough to be able to screw the leveling leg in place.The only hard part was holding the dryer steady to screw in the leveling foot.

Dryer would not start

My dryer is a KitchenAid KEYE660W (electric). I tried to start the dryer but it would not run. I did notice that if I held the start button down, I could feel light vibrations through the button. Searched through Yahoo and this site and determined that this is often a bad Thermal Fuse. Used the diagrams on this site to locate where it should be, removed the back of the dryer with a screwdriver, removed the two wires clipped to the Thermal Fuse and unscrewed the Thermal Fuse. I had a friend test the fuse with a Multimeter. It was bad so I ordered another one on this site and it arrived in two days. Screwed the Thermal Fuse back in and clipped the two wires back on. Started the dryer and it worked!!! Replaced the back of the dryer. This repair took 15 minutes MAX and taught me a little bit about Mulitmeters.

the lint chute assembly had corroded & would not accept the lint screen.

I pulled thee dryer out from the wall, shut off the gas & disconnected the gas line & the air vent, I then removed the fasteners from the upper end of the lint chute assembly (accessible from the top of the machine). I then tipped the machine over on to its front side making the back fully accessible. After removing the back cover, I removed the remaining fasteners holding the lint chute assembly in place & removed the part. I then removed the assembly only to find that the seals were not included in the package even though I had specifically asked about the seal when I called in & place my order. The response to my question was " seals are included that is why it is called an assembly." The end result was that I had to use alternate material & fabricate my own seals in order to complete the installation. As a result a repair which should have taken no more that 30 minutes, took over two hours.

We obtained the parts diagram in PDF format, which made disassembly very easy. We then ordered the parts and thanks to the promptness in delivery and knowing how to diassemble the dryer, we replaced the broken parts quickly and without having to call the repairman.
