First I watched the videos to be sure these parts were easily accessible. After determining the heating element was the problem, I decided to change the other parts only because they were so simple to change. I paid just shy of $100 for parts and fixed the dryer myself, saving who knows how much from a service call. This was by far the easiest appliance repair I've ever done. Thank you PartSelect.

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.

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!

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.

Dryer stopped heating

I thought I would do it myself and figured that because it wasn't heating I would replace all the thermostats and thermal fuse. Because I wanted to get it going right away, I also ordered a timer just incase. Turns out it was the timer and not the thermostats or fuze. I have a virtually new dryer again. Replacing the parts was really easy and didn't take long. Word of advise is to use an electrical (ohm) tester to determine which part is faulty; this will also save money by not buying not-needed parts.

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.

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.

First bought the Cycling Thermostat and Thermal Fuse. Installed. Still did not work.Next bought the Thermal Cut-Off Switch and the High Limit Thermostat. Installed. Still did not work. Then purchased the timer and installed. Still did not work. Finally tested the heat element with an on/off switch and wire. The heater worked. Changed the 2-pole 30 amp switch in panel box and the problem was solved. The parts were reasonable and easy to install. I left the new parts in and saved the old oned for the future, Parts delivery was quick. Will use parts Select in the future.

the drier belt broke and the tensioner was worn

I took off top of drier completely making sure to photograph wiring diagram for timer, then removed front. Laying drier on it's back, I could then install new belt and tensioner without needing a second pair of hands. I tried using bungee cord but found it easier for me to lay drier on its back. I completely vacuumed all areas including back of drier. I found the retainer clips for front of drier to be bent, so I straightened them. I also installed two sheet metal screws in case one of the retainers failed.

Dryer making squealing noise

Followed the directions on the web site. made a hook out of a wire hanger to hold the drum in place (hook from the back frame to the front of the drum) while I set the belt tensioner in place. removed the hook and the rest was easy.Works Great!!! like a new machine.

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

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.
