I'm a woman over 50 with little experience in appliance repair, but I didn't want to buy a new dryer. Landlord's Electrician ruled out house circuit. Viewed the expert videos. Opened top with putty knife, front with screw driver,cleaned out front lint areas then removed, tested and ruled out door switch and heater. Then removed the thermal switch, which tested to be dead. All parts were tough to remove, but saw fellow on video having trouble pulling off wires so it gave me confidence to use a little force and plyers. Since I knew if I didn't damage parts I could return them I gambled and spent under $30 to save my old dryer. It runs better than it has in years, so now I can save money on the electric bills and know how to maintain more than just the vent out. Thank you part select, because without the videos I would not have tried this by myself.

Dryer shuts off after 10 minutes

The dryer seemed to be shutting off due to overheating after 10 minutes. It would have to cool before turning on again, but it wouldn't stay running for very long before overheating. I cleaned the unit thoroughly and attempted to run another load with the same results. Other websites suggested replacing the motor, but in reference to this site, I tried the high limit fuse first, and I'm very glad I did. When I took the dryer apart to clean the blower, I found the old fuse which seemed quite used. It must have fallen down in the bottom when the repair man last replaced it. Anyhow, the color dot on the fuse is very important, but easy to miss. Even the repair man missed it as he had replaced the old pink dot electric fuse with the yellow dot gas fuse. The gas fuse will allow the electric dryer to overheat, tripping the thermal fuse and shutting down the dryer. This is a good design, as it prevents the dryer from burning down your house. The pink dot fuse MUST BE USED if you are using an electric model. I even missed this detail on my first attempt and almost lost hope after replacing the fuse with no change in performance. I double-checked my work though and caught my mistake. Now I enjoy a functional dryer again for fractions of the cost of a new unit. Thanks, Partselect!

My electric dryer suddenly stopped working in the middle of a load of clothes I was drying. When I tried to restart the dryer, nothing would happen. After finding no problem with the breaker switch at the fuse box, I knew the problem was with the dryer itself.

As I had never faced this type of equipment problem before, I went to YouTube and searched on 'how to repair electric dryer'. Fortunately, a video came up that was provided by PartSelect.com that addressed the very problem I was having with my dryer. After watching the video, I proceeded to order the parts that were recommended by this site. The parts arrived promptly in 3 days and I watched the video one more time before starting on the repair. My repair job went almost exactly as expected, although the toughest part was removing and installing the new thermal fuse. Nonetheless, my dryer now works like new, and I am forever grateful for PartSelect.com and their excellent videos!

I took the front panel off and cleaned out all the lint. I tested the high limit fuse and determined that was the problem. I ordered the parts. When the parts came in it just took about 30 mins to replace the fuse and the thermostat.

The installation instructions only told me which of the relays shouuld be used on an electric dryer and which were for a gas dryer. However, I looked on Partselect website and could see an exploded view of the dryer and was able to figure how to install. It was as simple as lifting the top of the dryer that was held only woth spring clips, removing 4 screws plugging in 2 relays and re installing the screws. Please note, unplug the dryer first! The wesite said that these hihg and low limit relays were the problem 36% of the time. They were right, total cost under $30.

Unplugged the dryer from the wall. Removed the front lower cover. Removed the two screws for the bracket that holds down the coils. Unplugged the coils and swapped them out. Reassembled everything in reverse order. Plugged the dryer back in and started it. It's as good as new.

First of all I went to your website and used the instant repairman. I typed in my dryers symptoms and it told me that 63% of the time the high limit kit would fix the problem. I watched the video on how to replace the parts - unfortunately my dryer was diff. than the one in the film. I unscrewed the panel on the back of the controls for my dryer. The rest of the back and sides on my model are one solid piece. Taped inside the panel was the schematic for my dryer. On the schematic it told me that with the top of my dryer opened I should be able to access the high limit thermostat. Using a nut driver I removed the nuts to allow the top of the dryer to open. The thermostat was clearly visible. I had to bend the metal piece it was attached to up, unscrew the thermostat and unclip the wires, screw in the new thermostat, reattach the wires, and bend the metal piece back into place. Unfortunately my schematic did not tell me where to find the thermal fuse which came in the kit and was also supposed to be changed. So I opened the front of the dryer and still could not locate the fuse. But I was able to do A LOT of vacuuming!. Anyway I looked up my dryer online and it said the fuse should be close to the high limit thermostat. So I went back into the top of the dryer and finally located the fuse on the frame that held the heating element. I unsnapped the metal piece that held the fuse in place, unclipped the wires, replaced the fuse, clipped the metal piece back on that held it in place and clipped the wires back on. I screwed the front and top of the dryer back into place and replaced the panel from behind the controls. And YEahhhh. It worked! I ordered my parts one morning and received them the next day. Awesome experience!!!! A GIRL fixed the dryer!

First and foremost, PartSelect is awesome! I placed the order on a Monday afternoon with regular shipping, and I had the belt Tuesday evening. Total repair involved removing several screws to open the top and front of the dryer, then installing the new belt. Pay close attention to the the dryer seal - make sure this is completely set. This was a very, very easy repair, and it cost me less than $20 for part and shipping! Also, the video on the PartSelect site shows exactly how to make this repair, and was very helpful.

Drier would not start.

  • Customer: Michael from Monte Sereno CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

First of all I learned how to open the top and front panel of the drier from the instructional video. I saw the inlet to the blower was completely blocked with a thick bunch of lint. This blockage seemed to have caused damage to the components of the high limit kit. I cleaned inside the drier of the lint and ordered the high limit kit. It arrived within two days. Replacing the thermal limiter mounted horizontally on top of the heater was easy. Figuring out how to disassemble the fuse mounted vertically on the side of the heater was difficult. Here the video was the great help. Replacing the fuse was easy also. After putting the front and top panels back together, I turned on the switch and the drier started and is still working fine.
