Complete disassembly and diagnosis

  • Customer: jeff from bridgewater, NJ
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

I am more fortunate than most because I have extensive mechanical repair experience and my father has extensive electrical repair experience...he read the schematic while I placed the probes in the appropriate locations...I completely disassembled, cleaned, replaced all maintenance parts (felt gaskets [front & back of drum], drive belt, foam gaskets on heat exhaust duct)...the culprit was found to be the Thermal Fuse but I also replaced the Cycling Thermstat just because I serviced the entire heat exhaust duct (it had a fair amount of lint in it after 14 years...all other sensors on the heater unit and switches (door switch & centrifical switch (you will never find this unless you take out the drive motor [it is inside the drive motor] were tested and found to be good...all dash controls / switches were found to be in good order also...Part Select is wonderful to work with...they said allow 5 days but the parts were here in 2...! Just a little help for all of you out there...putting the felt gasket on the back of the drum will test your patience...it is a little smaller than the drum and as you get near the end with the glue it is extremely difficult to get on...I would recommend having a lot of clamps handy to hold the portion that is already glued to drum in place and another set of hands to rotate drum while you are stretching on the remaining foot...! One other thing...if you don't want to go thru everything I did chances are quite strong that if the dryer does not restart (after first failing) I would say to just order the Thermal Fuse for the 9-10.00...it is a pretty safe bet this will be your problem...I believe the dryer will start / restart even if the heater unit is no good and or the Cycling Thermostat goes bad since that just senses humidity...? The switch and fuse on the motor are not replaceable here...my father had contacts to get those parts from the motor company but...one is designed to stop the motor if it becomes hot which in all honesty I think would be pretty rare...it is in an open area...the other switch inside the motor prevents the heater from heating up until the motor is spinning which inturn spins the exhaust fan which is a safety feature but again I think motor failure is pretty rare.

Lint Chute and Lint Trap Seals had Deteriorated

  • Customer: Robert from Melbourne, FL

The on-line instructions were excellent; however, the man doing the demonstration used a brand new machine - not one where the old seals had melted and dried out and required serious cleaning before attaching the new seals. The new seals went on easily and I am very happy with everything about this task. I am also glad I now know what that lint chute looks like, so I'll do a better job of keeping it clean in the future.

Clothes getting hot, but not getting dry

Verified that the heater element was working; drum and contents were getting hot. Could hear the thermostat clicking on/off as the element started to glow. Drum stayed very steamy the entire time; consistent with no airflow. Fan motor was running, dryer vent/line were clear. Verified cold (not hot) air from the external vent. Seals had degraded to the point that the fan was not drawing air from the drum, but from inside the dryer cabinet at the lower seal (by the fan blades); hot air was escaping from the upper seal and was causing the dryer cabinet to get unusually hot. Installed these 2 seals, and the dryer is working perfectly now.

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

  • Customer: Richard from Paramount, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench (Adjustable)

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.

You know -- you take it out and clean it every time you do a load of laundry. The old one had holes in it, so we bought a new one. It fit. End of "repair."

Remove switch by disassembling the wire connector. (pull apart) Then, connect the new switch assembly and align over the two screw holes on the dryer door frame with the switch trip arm in proper position. Insert the screws and tighten carefully.
