Dryer wouldn't turn on

When I initially inspected the dryer when it stopped working, I noticed a ball of lint had collected on the backside of the thermal fuse. I figured that had allowed the temperature to exceed the fuse's max temp. To relace, I simply removed the dryer's rear panel, disconnected the thermal fuse and replaced it. Once all back together, the dryer powered on with no problem.

I first examined the electrical diagram that came on the inside of the rear panel to determine where to check for loss voltage since this problem had all the tale,tale signs of a device not receiving power to turn on so I began at one end of the circuit and using my Fluke meter on the AC scale along with the electrical diagram found the thermal fuse opened.At that time I went to your site to see if I could buy this part and found you had it plus more so even though the thermo switch tested good I felt the need to replace it along with the thermo fuse as a set. I'm an electronic tech for a different type of machines but this was still just an electrical problem like the machines I work on daily.

I replaced the thermal fuse and the cycling thermostat, it was quite easy you need a 1/4 nut driver and remove the back of the machine and the two items are there in plain view simply remove and replace and voila,I am a woman with more knowledge of how things don't work when broken but laundry was going to pile up and I was desperate and couldn't afford to call a repair man and the husband doesn't fix things he doesn't use and he was planning on stringing clothes line throughout the house to remedy the problem :( it took me about 45 minutes but that included finding anything I might need and vacuuming and cleaningthe dryer and vents had I called a repairman I may have ran off with him ;) felt amazing when I turned it on and it worked perfectly!

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..

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.
