Seriously, there's no need to explain how to do it because the video shown on how to change the thermal fuse is as precise and accurate as it can get. You should have no problem switching out the thermal fuse as long as you have watched the video!

Checked circuit breaker, cord, outlet. Went through troubleshooting guide on website and isolated the problem and ordered the thermal fuse and cycling thermostat after watching the video. Parts arrived the next day, much quicker than promised. Unscrewed the back cover and removed the thermal fuse which was exactly as depicted in the video. The dryer worked! I replaced the cycling thermostat next and checked that the dryer still worked. Reattached the back cover and now no more hanging the wash on the clothesline. I was really impressed with the accuracy of the video. The troubleshooting guide and testimonies of others with the same problem gave me the confidence that my diagnosis was correct. Easiest and most efficient repair process ever. Thank you so much PartSelect for an outstanding service! AAAAAA+++++ company!

Used wire schematic and locate thermal fuse. Disconnect power and remove rear panel. About 8 screws. Remove the two wires from fuse and check fuse continunity. Fuse was open and prevented power from going to gas solenoids. Replace fuse and clean exhaust ducts. Dirty ducts might have caused fused to over heat.

I went on the PartSelect site and watched some videos to determine what could be wrong. I almost guessed and bought the wrong part as there were a few. I ended up spending $17 for a multi tester. Once I determined that the thermal fuse was bad. I just followed the instructions from the video and replaced it. Took me more time figuring out what part was bad and buying the tester than actually replacing the part. Very glad I bought the multi tester watched the videos. After that it was easy.

It is a washer/dryer combo. First I unplugged the unit. I had to remove the top and front of the dryer, remove the belt and remove the drum. I then removed the side panel that the motor was on. That was a little tricky getting at a couple of the screws. I then took the flywheel off which was somewhat difficult. It screws off in the opposite direction and was hard to get loose. I unplugged the motor, no wires to connect. There is a clip on the front and back of the motor holding it in place. Take them off and the motor comes right out. Replace the new motor and screw the flywheel back on. Install the clips, plug the motor in and put everything back as you took it apart.

Read the Use & Care Guide! I spent several hours trying to repair a dryer that was not broken because I was unaware of the "lint signal". While replacing a burnt out heater element I apparently disturbed the flapper on the lint signal box and it stuck in the open position. My wife who does the laundry has always kept the lint filter clean so we had never heard the lint signal and I assumed that the high pitched sound I was hearing must have been from a faulty gasket, belt, roller, pully, or motor. Boy is my face red!

The dryer stopped rotating and moter smelled funny

Watched the how to video on the parts select site. The job to replace the motor was easy although I had some issues with the blower fan wheel as it is made of plastic and was frozen to the motor, yes I turned it the correct way for the left hand threads. I ended up distroying the blower fan wheel and had to buy a new one. I had to remove the rear plate to get at the fan component, but thta was easy to do also. This site should add a "Sometimes bought together" comment for the motor replacement. After all was done I read some of the other comments and found some others had the same problem with the fan wheel. Once I had all the parts the dryer went back together fairly quickly. The job was easy to do and I would believe almost anyone could do it.

Unplugged the dryer and removed the exhaust duct. Pulled dryer away from back wall and removed the rear cover. Pulled wires off heating element & ohmed element with a multimeter. Element failed to show any ohms so I removed the element from the dryer and visually saw the element was broken. Ordered the part. It arrived within 5 days and installed it. attached the wires and put the rear cover back on. Hooked up the exhaust duct and plugged unit back in. Tested the dryer and it has been working fine ever since.

I don't know the proper names for everything and I'm not a handy man by any means! That's why when my husband and I were trying to figure out what was wrong, I was so proud of myself when I discovered the issue. I order the part around 4pm the next day and it was delivered at 3pm the next day even though I only paid for FedEx Ground (3-5 day) shipping. I was very very pleased with that! I was going to wait till my husband got home from work, but I decided to just try replacing it myself. I took the back of the dryer apart and unscrewed the heating element case. I used the pliers to unplug the wires. I plugged the wires into the new heating element, put everything back together, checked to make sure the dryer was heating up again and wa-la... I was done! It was sooooooo easy!! And finding the correct part on partselect.com was very simple as well.

At first dryer would not turn off so you had to turn it off manually. Then dryer lost heat, so I took it apart and the heating element wires had been melted. I decided to get the sensors and the heating element because I had the problem of it not shutting off before the heating element went out. Took me about 30 mins, works like a charm. Only have to do one cycle again. My advice replace the sensors if you are having to do multiple cycles and save yourself the price of a new heating element
