Easy on Kenmore Performa Dryer, order the High Limit Kit, it got here in 3 days. Unplug from wall, use flathead screwdriver to pop up the top; then look for the High Limit just behind the drum and the smaller fuse below that one on the right. Best to have smaller hexagon ratchet, and be careful not to drop them behind the drum. When you undo the high limit, use needle nose pliers to pull of the contacts from it. Then just attach as you disconnected, be sure you know which was which. Then remove the old smaller one, it can be tricky, and install new one. Then just close up the top, plug it in and it should start right up. Have replaced this every few years, easy and affordable.

The timer was an easy fix, the hardest part was changing over the wires. I did have to remove the heating element to complete repairs, my hands are just too big to get into that little area where the thermal fuse is located. It was all back together in about an hours time, an easy fix and saved a lot of money

I UNPLUGGED DRYER AND REMOVED FRONT OF LOWER DRYER UNIT. USED FLASHLIGHT AND INSPECTED. I FOUND BELT AND PULLEY WERE BROKEN. USING A PAIR OF CHANNEL LOCKS I REMOVED THE BROKEN PULLEY. (PULLEY HAS A LEFT HAND THREAD, SO I TURNED IT CLOCKWISE TO REMOVE IT. I CHECKED THIS WEBSITE AND FOUND THE PARTS. THE PULLEY HAS BEEN REDESIGNED AND LOOKED DIFFERENT. I ORDERED THE PARTS AND WAITED 2 DAYS FOR THE PARTS TO ARRIVE. I TURNED THE PULLEY ONTO THE THREADS COUNTER CLOCKWISE AS HARD AS I COULD BY HAND (DON'T OVER TIGHTEN THIS PULLEY, IT WILL BREAK EASILY) I SLID THE BELT OVER THE DRUM AND AROUND PULLEY (MAKING SURE THE BELT WAS LINED UP IN THE SAME LOCATION AROUND DRUM) AND LIFTED TENSIONER INTO PLACE. INSTRUCTIONS COME WITH BELT FOR BELT REPLACEMENT. I RE INSTALLED FRONT AND TESTED, OK.

Belt broken & toe panel was loose

I followed the instructions supplied with the belt. I've changed the belt before so was familiar with the repair. The toe panel clips for my model had changed so what was supplied was different than the originals. Although they, too, came with instructions, they did not fit my appliance. They were inexpensive so I scrapped them and used some self-adhesive Velcro fasteners I had in a junk box.

The dryer would not turn on so I checked the power. I then googled the problem and found that the high limit fuse was bad. I ordered the part and simply replaced the fuses after watching the video on the website. Simple and easy. Thanks!

The dryer belt was delivered promply, afterwards I lifted the top of the dryer and unscrewed the front panel, so it would lower. Then I watch a 5 minute video and it clearly demonstrated how to install the belt. This was my first time, so it took about 30 minutes.

Squeaky wheel

Basically I started off using youtube to see how to install. Two things to be sure you do – one the plastic washer only goes on one side (read the instructions)of the shaft and two the support brackets are not threaded so you need to use the original self-tapping screws. The screws that come with it will not work. Best to use a socket set to install the screws.

Dryer Stopped Mid Cycle and Would Not Start

Dryer stopped mid cycle with a load in it. First checked breaker, then door switch with an ohm meter and went to Partselect web site where they said it was most likely the high limit fuse. Checked the high limit fuse with an ohm meter and it was open so I ordered the kit. Installation was tight (I have big hands) and I found it necessary to remove the heating coil in order to line up the fuse mounting plate on the side heater box. Also had to remove the two wire clips above the heater to gain access. All in all, it was fairly easy and when done, the dryer started up.
