My wife hates me because I keep repairing our appliances. The dryer and washing machine are now 21 years old and look like new. To replace these two parts, first check if the igniter is glowing at all when you turn the dryer on. To do this remove the access panel in front on the bottom. To remove it, slide a flat screw driver across the slot onto of the panel to locate the release clips. Depress the release clamps by sliding the screw driver on top and pull the panel forward. Now start the machine and see if the igniter glows. If not proceed to replace the Thermal Fuse and both thermostats. To do so, open the back panel of the unit. First disconnect power and vent. Unscrew and replace components which will be easily seen on the bulk head. Use a pliers to remove the contacts. Your machine will now last another twenty years and your wife will hate you as does mine:)

Watched several videos online and was suggested that the thermal fuse was bad, so i replaced it but no fix. So i checked the previews Q&A from other costumers and watched the videos on how to replace different parts. I first looked thru the peep hole on the bottom left part of the dryer and saw the igniter glow for about 10 sec every minute but no flame would start. So i replaced the igniter, the flame sensor, and the coils all at once. I know thats not the proper way to troubleshoot something but i was gonna take the drum out and everything so mind as well replace them all. Dryer works like new and dont have to listen to the wife complaint anymore!!!

After watching your instuctional video I removed the back plate removed old wired and unscrewed the part couldn't have been easier. I have never worked on a dryer in my life and am female :). The hardest part was turning off and unhooking the gas line and again after watching a video on how to do it all went well.

missing male door catch

After installing the new door catch, the door still wouldn't stay closed; the children had been using the door in the horizontal position as a stepladder, and consequently warped the door. I bent the door back to its original shape more or less and now it stays shut.

Dryer would either not turn on or not turn off. Door switch would not click.

I followed the video instruction found on www.partselect.com. I removed 2 screws from the exhaust filter area. Then used a putty knife and a screwdriver to pop the top off its 2 front (hidden) plastic snaps (see video). Then disconnected the switch and unscrewed it. I replaced it with the new one and closed the unit. This was the easiest repair ever. The video instructions were perfect and showed all the needed tricks. It took 5 minutes (exactly). The only tricky part was unsnapping the electrical connection to the broken switch (take an extra 10 seconds to avoid breaking the connector). Probably saved me between $150 (repair man in our area) and $550 (replacement unit). I love this site. It help me diagnose the problem, identify the defective part, provided a diagram & installation video, and sold the part. Shipping was lightning fast, the part arrived in 36 hours. Thank you Part Select.

I'm a great grandmother. When I realized that the dryer had a problem I went online to find the part. I found it on your site - so easy to find there. I told my husband that I could pay a repairman $75 for a house call and, probably, $25-$40 for the part and labor or I could order from you and have it working in 30 minutes. He took the latter choice. It was a good one! It cost me less than $25 for the part and labor and 13 minutes to have it working like new. We are both pleased with the result. The repair was so easy. I just watched the video on the site and followed it step-by-step. I will recommend your site to all my friends and my 2 sons who are just as handy! Thanks so much.

Dryer would not shut off

I removed the top of the dryer and removed the faulty switch form it's mating connector. The simply removed two Phillips Head round headed screws with a screw driver and replaced the part all within 15 minutes. However, I also heard that it wasn't drying properly so after making sure my dryer vent was free of any lint build up, I removed the back of the dryer. Once removed, I completely cleand any dust from inside the dryer, then checked all of the visable wire connections and then went to PartSelect's fantastic web-site. Her they catagorize the top 7 reasons that could cause the problem (in my case) not drying and thenproceed to give you an idea of the most likely cause by publishing the failure rat in per centage values in decending order, they also provide schematics and the on top of all of that...they provide mini-videos not only showing you wher the parts are located but the step by step instructions on how to remove them and replace them. After all of this, I took my ohm meter and actually removed all of the 7 parts suggested, cleaned them up, ran a continuity check on each part and found them all in working order. Replaced the parts and checked the heat and it was back to normal!! There must have be a lose connection causing the problem. But, I can guarantee that the next time I have an appliance problem...I'll again be calling on PartSelect.com. They are awesom and they will be highly recommended to anyone I know that is experiencing problems. I have not ever seen a web-site that was so complete in excellent service. And there prices and shipping time speaks for itself. They are great!!
