Dryer would run, but there was no heat going to the unit

It could not have been easier, thanks to the video displayed when I ordered the part. It was as easy as removing the back of the dryer, taking out the old fuse and putting in a new old. I have NO repair experience, so little I had to borrow the nutdriver from the maintance man at work. I was more then a little leary to try this repair on my own, but decided it was worth all the money I would save not having to call a repair man for my dryer. Sure glad I did I will continue to attempt more repairs on my own.

Checked voltage coming into unit, good. Checked schematic and traced the voltage through the safeties and interlocks. Found the problem at the thermal link. Isolated unit from all voltage sources.

I removed the back of the dryer (after unplugging and shutting off the gas valve) I vacuumed any fuzz and debris. I also removed the dryer vent and cleaned that too. I unscrewed the thermal fuse and replaced it with the new one. I wiped everything down and replaced the back and ran the dryer and it worked! Thanks for your help and for saving me money! My husband was so glad we didn't have to call a service man we celebrated by going out to dinner!

I watched your YouTube video about trouble shooting dryers, and found that the problem was my thermal fuse was out. My exact model of dryer was used in the video. I ordered the part and replaced it following the instructions on YouTube. Since the video was so helpful, I decided to order my part from your company

Dryer was running but not producing heat

  • Customer: Anthony from Elk Grove Village IL

Most of the time was spent just getting behind the dryer and removing the back panel. It was also a great time to vacuum the area. If you're not working in tight quarters, this repair is really easy. The fuse is not hidden and requires no tools to install (only a wrench to remove the back panel). It started working right away & the part cost significantly less than a service call (about nine bucks + shipping).

bought thermal fuse and thermostat as most likely. Took apart and checked with voltmeter and found the fuse open. Replaced it. Video instructions are helpful as is the part location in the drawings. Real problem was lint had built up in back vent area, blocking cooling/ burner intake air. Went through entire dryer and vacuumed it out

The control panel won't leave Casual load.

Well the video showed us taking off the back. Which wouldn't come off. Welded. Then we could not find the fuse in back of the unit or bottom. The second time we tried we found it in the front. We had to take off the front, bottom cover then we found the fuse. But, it didn't fix the problem. The unit is still on Casual load only. When we push the buttons the other lights light up but goes back to Casual. The unit is clear of lint and still drys but only at the Casual setting.

Gas burner would not fire.

First removed and checked the ignighter. It was fine. Next I located the schematic drawing and discovered that the burner, ignighter, and flame detector were all operated by one simple 110 volt circuit. This circuit did not power up when the dryer was cycled on. I pulled the dryer from the wall, removed the back panel, the vent etc. I then located the operating thermostat and the thermal fuze. The thermal fuze was open. (GOOD NEWS AN EASY FIX!!!) Thanks Guys

Well it took me longer to get the dryer apart and than it did to get it back together... Well I opened it up it was obvious I had burned up the motor you couldn't even see it for all the lint that was built up around it... And the hardest part was removing the fan from the motor shaft, I didn't realize it was plastic and sort of mangled it getting it off so I went ahead and replaced it as well. The hardest part of the whole repair was removing and replacing the clips that hold the motor in place and there didn't seem to be any trick to it, I used a pair of channel locks and a little muscle to get them off and back on everything else was a breeze! I recommend checking the exhaust pipe at least once a year to make sure air is flowing freely to prevent the lint build up inside and even more often if you have a long run. This should prevent having this problem again...
