Unusual noise

Watched the videos for unusual noise... they are great and saved me time with advice how to open the machine from top and front and install belt on tension wheel. Lower roller bad, replaced both. Opted to also order and replace the belt and rear seal upon inspection. Time spent would have been 30 minutes or less but rear seal replacement requires time to clean off old seal adhesive and glue on new one. Take your time with rear seal replacement it takes longer than I thought but worth it. The labor involved to replace the seal alone would have been more than the dryer cost new. Also- I ordered parts at 2pm std shipping option and got them THE NEXT DAY less than 24 hrs later. May not be typical depending on your location but I was amazed. I have been fixing all my own appliances for years first time customer with Parts Select. Oh and EACH of the 3 parts ordered were 10$ less EACH than my local parts guys. WOW

No Heat

After checking the PartsSelect website, I found that the most likely cause for my no heat problem was the Thermal Fuse and the Cycling Thermostat. I ordered both since they are located next to each other on the dryer. I followed the instructions in the video, first removing the dryer back. Next I located and removed both parts. I also did a cleaning of the dryer compartment since the back was already removed. Installed the 2 parts according the the video and re-installed the dryer back. It is now running like new. Great website, excellent video instructions saving me $600 to replace a perfectly good working appliance.

I diagnosed the problem using the web page. It said that 60% of the people with my problem bought the Thermal Fuse. I unplugged the dryer AND cut the power at the fuse box. I used a screwdriver to remove the vent hose, a nutdriver to remove the back of the machine. The thermal fuse was right there. Removed the old one with a screwdriver, unplugged the wires from the old one and snapped on new one, and screwed it back in. Re-installed the back of the dryer and the vent hose and Whoila! It works like a champ.

Thermal Cut-Off Kit (279816) was the wrong part for our Whirlpool Dryer Model. The thermal cut-off replacement part did not match the incumbent part. Before ordering this kit, I would recommend homeowners remove the back of the dryer and verifying this kit would work on their dryer. In our situation, it was a fuse that had to be replaced. Although your kit did not help or address my problem, I found the buying experience and the DIY reassurance to be positive. Hopefully the refund process will be equally positive. Thank you.

Clothes not drying

I cleaned out the vent inside and out. I removed the hose and checked the heat output, there was none. I ordered the Heating element, and the fuse as it was cheap enough not to have to go in a second time. I used a nut driver to remove screws, installed new part. The hardest was removing a small part from the old element that is needed to be added to the new Element. I switched on dryer to check for heat then replace back panel. I don think it has ever worked this well. I was bought 5 years ago from an unused model home.

I followed the repair instruction video from the web site and the repair went just like the video. Before I viewed the video, I didn't even imagine I could make this repair myself. The replacement switch was exactly the same as the original from the factory. Everything went well and it was a pleasant experience. Our dryer is working just fine now.

The door switch was not clicking on & off & I thought that was the problem. Went on line to find out how to get the switch out. I then removed the switch got the part # & ordered the new switch. The switch was sent by Fed Ex & delivered the day after I ordered it, I installed it the same day & the dryer is now operating.

Removed front and back covers on dryer, screws on top and down one side to spread cabinet to remove drum,removed blower cover to get access to shaft nut on that side. The other is accessible. I found that both shafts can bethe longer of the two that were sent. The shorter shaft is too short and needed to be modified to let the roller come outward to lay in the grove in the drum. I will get a longer shaft and replace it.
