Watched how-to video provided on PartSelect website. Most time was spent cleaning out the cabinet of lint and other debris. I found over 5 bucks in loose change! I Found pulling the belt over the motor pulley to be the trickiest. Note: my dryer will be 30 years old come this September. I wonder how many more years I'll get out of it!

i checked the power cord to be sure it was plugged in properly. i checked the thermal fuse in the front. i checked the thermostat fuse. i checked the heater element circuit and found infinite ohms. i checked kept the front cover up and watched that the heating element never came on. that confirmed my decision to buy the heating element. i installed a new one along with the thermostat that came in the kit. problem solved! my dryer is working again and everyone is happy again.

It wasnt to bad,its way easy for people with small hands its a tight fit for larger hands that was my only problem.After putting the dryer back in service it still did not heat correctly so I pulled the lint catcher out and the vent hose off the back and blew it out with an air compressor my God what a mess it was plugged bad should have had a fire so please look at doing the same with yours if its an older dryer.

Can't stop laughing about the mistake I almost made, before I even looked on internet I called Sears and scheduled a repair appointment, $80.00 just to have someone come out and tell me what my problem was not to repair it but to tell me whats wrong. And I told them the belt had broken I heard it when it snapped. Long story short version I found your website and entered appliance information, found part for $15.00 but also found on-site video clearly making the needed repair. Clear step by step instructions taking only 8 minutes looked very easy so I took a chance ordered the part two days later part arrived so I went into basement armed with laptop and tools. MAN it was easy.... too easy ....worked out fine video was spot on. Thanks you guys are a great company

Thanks to Parts select it saved me hundreds of dollars. I dont know the exact age of my dryer as it was here when I bought the house. It stopped working and I thought, well here goes a few hundred dollars. I looked on line for possible fixes and found Parts select "thank goodness". There was discriptions and a video on how to fix a hight limit switch. I bought the parts was about 36 dollars with shipping, watched the video and fixed it in 15-30 minutes. simple, thanks again for having an awsome site. Dennis Pudoka, FL.

Opened the lid from the front. Took the high limit switch and bracket off. Removed the screw holding the element connection to the dryer out. This let the bracket holding the thermal switch come up. Being careful not to let the thermal switch fall out, removed it and replace it with the new thermal switch. hooked the two wires back on to it. Put the bracked on and pushed down, replaced the screw. I also replaced the high limit switch, put it back on and connected the two wires to it. Closed lid and tested.

Dryer was making a noise upon starting and periodically in each cycle. My husband took off the front panel and discovered the blower wheel was breaking apart. I went online and found this site, ordered, and it arrived a couple of days later. Very easily installed with the aid of a rubber mallet to push it firmly against the connecter point in the dryer.

The project was rather simple and saved the price of a new dryer! After lifting the dryer top the most difficult job was replacing the lower thermostat. It was in a relatively tight area that my hand did not fit into easily. The actual time spent on the repair was 35 to 40 minutes.

From the description of the symptoms on the site and what part fixes those symptoms I was able to determine what part I needed. The video was very easy to follow and understand it was very helpful. Hands down the best parts website I’ve ever come across.

Watched video and removed old fuse. Tested with ohm meter which showed it was bad. Very very easy to replace. Video shows everything you need to know. Remember to open front panel of dryer and clean lint system! Extreme build up of lint causes dryer to over heat! Fantastic web site with all info needed to complete repairs! Thank you for all the help.
