Click on the problem and find the possible solutions. Click on the part and watch the installation instructions. Unfortunately, mine was a bad thermostat/fuse that can only be purchased with the High Limit Thermostat which I had already purchased. What you might find helpful is that all thermostats and fuses should show continuity at room temperature when using an Ohm meter. Both purchases arrived within 30 hrs. of shipping. I was impressed. I ended up changing all three thermostats but was still way ahead considering a service call is $140 plus parts. I almost scheduled this service until stumbling onto this site thinking the heater was bad but was much cheaper than the local appliance/repair store. Again, the continuity test showed that the heater was fine and everything already mentioned above could be inspected and changed in less than 10 minutes.

I removed the 9 screws from the back plate of the dryer. I cleaned all the lint off the wires and the entire back of the unit with a paint brush and vacuum cleaner. Then I removed each part with a nut driver, also removing the wires and replaced each part in less that 1/2 hour! The videos were a huge help. Now my 16 year old dryer works like new. Saved lot of $$$. Thanks Partselct you're the Greatest!

We started with replacing a thermal fuse, went onto heating element & then to replacing the high limit thermostat. The replacements went very easily with your videos, but unfortunately it did not do the job & there is still no heat.

Changing the parts was very easy and took little time to replace all of the parts. I did watch the vidoes that where helpful. Troubleshooting the problem took more time than the repairs

My grandson and I wiggled the dryer out of it's tight hole, turned it around and squeezed it back in to make room for the repair job. I followed the easy repair video on your site and removed the housing etc, vacuumed the lint collected over the past 6 years, replaced the heater coil and sensor, and had it back within an hour, with most of the time spent on cleaning lint. Thanks for the video!! This kind of DIY can be fun with the right info. Great bonding-time for generation gap, too. Dryer works like new.

Installed both parts but still doesn't heat. Probably have to buy a dryer because a new element will be about $80. Your response and delivery time were great as were the instructions.

Clothes were coming out damp after the drying cycle.

i replaced both the high limit and cycling thermostats because cost was not that much and these thermostats change settings as they age. After replacing the thermostats the problem was solved.

I watched the repair expert on you tube. Went to my dryer and took out the heating element, inspected it, and found a broken element wire. Ordered a new element and since I was in there I also replaced the high limit thermostat. Parts select made it easy and my dryer works great again. Thank you.

The clothes dryer was making squeaky, screechy noises.

First off, I was somewhat misled by the website and ordered the wrong parts. I entered my model number and ordered the maintainance kit. The info said it was good for Whirlpool, Maytag and others. I also watched the video which is apparently the Whirlpool. So, the wrong parts arrived. The PartSelect peeple were very helpful in getting me the right parts and getting them delivered promptly. I then found the proper video, watched that and did the repair. Be aware that all models have subtle differences. Mine had two long screws in the bottom of the door frame not shown in the video. I also had a little trouble with the pulley spring. I removed the assembly and then got it all back together ok. Then I lost one of the door hinge screws. It evaporated. The replacement part was like $4 so I used one from the local HD and all is well.

Had to order idler lever and wheel as the one in the kit would not work. Best to buy part specific for your dryer. Repair was easy, just watch repair video. Sounds like new dryer again

Removed top of dryer and front panel per instructions and removed belt and drum. After removing what was left of the old rear drum seal I scraped off and sanded the old adhesive off. Reapplied new adhesive and installed new seal after about 3 to 5 minutes (let adhesive get tacky) I then used about a dozen spring clothes pins to hold seal in place while adhesive set up. Reinstalled drum,belt,front panel and top and job was complete. Time included letting adhesive set up. Easy and inexpensive, thank you parts select.

dryer turned on but would not spin

Watched video on You Tube, ordered parts online and used excellent instructions sent with belt and other parts in kit. Turn power off by unplugging cord, lift out lint screen, remove screws in lint screen slot, pry up top of dryer with wood chisel or heavy screwdriver, unplug wires top front of dryer, remove self-tapping screws holding front panel in place, lift out drum, remove and replace all parts included in kit, lifted drum back into place, placed detergent bottle under drum to hold it in place while attaching new belt, asked wife to hold lightweight drum in place while I reattached electrical wires and front of dryer. Lowered top of dryer into place and reinstalled lint screen, Be careful! Panels are thin and cut like a knife. Also the dryer lid can fall if you slide the dryer into the wall while working below.

Broken belt

I did as your online movie said to do it. It is a big help and you can see that the belt, rollers and idler pulley is not a difficult job and you save yourself at least $100. Toughest part of job is putting back the nylon triangle things that hold the rollers on without breaking them.That is why I used the needlenose pliers. The triangle things that hold on the rollers have little tabs on them and I just gently pulled them outward and the triangles went right on.That repair kit from Whirlpool(builder of my Kenmore dryer)was a real bargain and everything fit perfectly. Bottom line is don't be afraid to try this repair. You will most likely succede. Go out to diner with the money you saved. Good luck, Mike
