Thermal Kit - Had to remove the heat coil

The video for the Heat Kit replacement is excellent. However, i could not replace the fuse without removing the heating coil. It was the only way my hands could get the fuse bracket out/then in. I accidently inverted the heating coil when trying to replace it, and struggled for a minute or so. Be sure your HC coil is in the same position as when you removed it. You might want to include the heating coil removal as a standard part of the replacement video. He specifically mentioned NOT having to remove the coil. Otherwise the video and and the instructions are perfect. You need to make sure you clean out the tubing/vent prior to replacing the thermostat and fuse. Otherwise you are wasting you time. Perfect repair, easily done..luv it.

Unfortunately this was not the problem, it turned out to be a bad igniter, but, the parts would need replaced soon and now I have a almost new dryer. It was pretty easy and there was help online from utube. The parts were very easy to find and swap out.

Diagnosed the problem as a blown thermal fuse. Ordered High Limit Kit. Watched a YouTube video on how to replace the fuse. A little trouble with dropping a metal bracket -3- times to the bottom of the dryer. A little inginuity solved that problem. Replaced the high limit fuse, and thermal fuse. Cleaned duckwork thouroughly. Was very clogged with lint, which probably caused the overheat problem in the first place.Put everything back together, dryer fired right up!

I first had gone to the repair which told me there were only f few parts that could cause the loss of power including to the dryer light. They also showed how to test the units with an ohm meter. I then visited this site which also had how to videos for the actual removal and installation of the parts. I would like to have seen a step by step procedure for determining and testing to identify the defective part along with the video for replacement on this site. However, I did find this site most helpful and placed on order the part I needed. It arrived the very next day. And it took very little time to install. I had already removed the defective units. The dryer is again functioning . The actual cause of the failure od the defective unit was due to overheating because of a large amount of lent blocking the air glow at the blower unit. We clean the lent trap with every use. However this is not good enough. I think that the front panel needs to be opened at least yearly to properly clean the area in front of the blower unit. Hope this helps any of you other DYI people out there.

I opened the top with a putty knife and removed the two connectors to the front cover. I didn't have any tester to check sensors so I replaced them all. That didn't work. So I changed the coils on the gas valve and that fixed it. It was a lot better then the price of a new DRYER. Thank you for your help

Dryer not working at all

  • Difficulty: Really easy

usually run through these tests first before I have to open until the unit.. establish that your 240 volt breaker didn't trip... If the breaker is okay... Unplug the dryer and use a multimeter to ensure you have 240 volts at the receptacle... If you are okay there... next check the door switch... You can press the button and you should hear a click... If you hear it click you should be okay there... Okay let's open the top... There are 2 black latches on the unit towards each side... You can use a flathead screwdriver or a putty knife to depress the clips while pulling gently upwards on the lid and it will open...from past experience fixing dryers I knew that more than likely it was the thermal fuse.... With the unit still unplugged... Look towards the back of the unit you will see the heating element...There is a thermostat and the thermal fuse on the bracket with the element... The thermal fuse is the small black and silver thing about the diameter of a dime. What the thermal fuse does is protects the unit if it should get too hot... pretty much a safety mechanism... What you want to do is remove the screw holding the little bracket that houses the fuse and remove it... It is a little tight back there this is why I remove it...Next remove the 2 wires and test the fuse using a continuity test making sure that you have a closed circuit... If it's an open circuit that would be your problem... Order the high limit thermostat kit... You should replace the thermostat also which comes in the kit...remove the 2 screws holding the thermostat down and once you get your replacement parts just replace the thermostat and fuse and you'll be good to go...

I have to admit I did not fix this. This dryer is at our beach house and my daughter and her family went down with part in tow. My son in law is an engineer and very smart and handy. He had the dryer purring like a kitten in no te with the part ordered. Thank you Lord and Will!!

looked up model on partselect and used the part by symptom section, chose the"will not start" symptom, based on that, the high limit kit seemed obvious, ordered part,received part in two days. watched repair video on this web site, followed the instructions, which were very clear, after unplugging the dryer, replaced both limit switches using nut driver, couldn't have been easier! I echo what other reviewers have said, you have customer for life! well thought out website providing excellent service to a person who wants to understand how things work and then fix it.

Dryer quit

I went with the majority and started with replacing the thermostat and thermal fuse. It fixed the problem, and all for about $30. The repair was easy, although you do have to do some finger gymnastics to get at the thermal fuse. Of course, I wanted to know why the fuse blew in the first place. I had cleaned the interior of the dryer out last year and I wasn't seeing much of a build up. I then removed all 20 feet of the dryer vent hose and cleaned it out with a kit (LintEatr, about $30)that attaches to your cordless drill. I pulled out a shopping bag full of lint. My clothes used to take up to 3 cycles to dry and now it is back to 1. Clean out your vent hose, people! P.S. There must be a reason for it, but it would be much easier if the fuse had a reset like other heating units do, instead of having to open the dryer up and replace parts.
