I watched the video several times to make sure I got it right. The first thing that was very helpful was how to disassemble the top cover and front panel using a putty knife to disengage the detents. With the cover off I could acccess the belt and idler pulley. Replacing the belt was fairly easy as long as you note the way it threads through the idler pulley and drive pulley. I thought the video was excellent. It took me right to the problem and the fix. As a bonus the price for the belt was much lower from Parts Supply then from Sears. I've recommended this site to several others.

Took the back off of the dryer, looked on "parts select" found what I thought might be the problem. Got the parts the next day. Put on new thermal fuse, then put on cycling thermostat. Wasn't sure which it needed, so put both on. Put the back of the dryer on hooked the gas up, hooked up to electric, & turned the dryer on. Back in business, everything works, dryer works as if nothing was wrong. Thanks to "parts select" saved me a repair bill.

It took longest to take apart and test to see which part was bad. I had never done it before. Got it apart and used the drawings on Parts Select to find location of parts. Testing only few minutes found bad thermostat.Ordered parts, and they came in 1 1/2 days. I replaced both thermostats being they were in the kit. Actual repair took maybe 15 minutes. Vacuumed out everything I could. Took lint trap out a vacuumed. Put it back together, plugged it in, heated like new. All time told I would say little over hour.

two screws on filter housing and then lift dryer to up like the hood of a car the two screws on actuator, be careful not to drop actuator, if you do use a magnet to retrieve, two screws back in then wire clip top of dryer down and two screws back into filter housing and your ready to dry clothes, not recommended but if you have to dry clothes while waiting for part a clamp on the switch will allow you to use dryer, but be extremely careful because dryer will not turn off when door is opened

I replaced the on/off switch hoping that it was the problem. No such luck. It still would not start. I now have a sparkling new dryer in its place. My husband did not want to fool with it and by the time I replaced everything that it could have been with it, we would have been taken over by dirty clothes. The site was fantastic at showing me what to check and how to change the part. It was simple! Shipping time was great!

I went to partselect.com, input my model number and problem, I clicked on the right solution and watched a short video on how to repair the problem. Ordered the parts which arrived the next day. It took me ten minutes to replace the two parts I had ordered and the problem was solved. I probably saved a couple hundred dollars doing this repair myself..

I am a 53 yr old women who repaired the dryer. The instructions from another user were easy to follow. When I contacted the manufacturer and explained the problem, they suggested a repair man come at a cost of $365. I found the right part on the website and saved $$$$. You can do it too!
