I cleaned out the vent inside and out. I removed the hose and checked the heat output, there was none. I ordered the Heating element, and the fuse as it was cheap enough not to have to go in a second time. I used a nut driver to remove screws, installed new part. The hardest was removing a small part from the old element that is needed to be added to the new Element. I switched on dryer to check for heat then replace back panel. I don think it has ever worked this well. I was bought 5 years ago from an unused model home.

I first came to the internet to resolve what was wrong. After finding the video I thought was correct I started. I used my volt/ohm meter to check the thermal fuse as instructed on the video and that was the problem. I ordered the new thermal fuse from PartSelect late in the day and it was in my hands the next evening. With in 20 minutes the dryer was doing what it was suppose to do. The hardest part was getting the back cover of the crier off and that wasn't to bad.

Went thru all the electrical connections, finally checked the thermal fuse. . It was the culprit. Next time I start there. Unlike older dryers, where one component gos such as the drum belt or the heating element and its only 2 years old. This thermal fuse shuts down the entire unit when it malfunctions

I checked the site, diagnosis - need thermal fuse and it suggested replacing thermostat as well. Viewed the video. Removed dryer hose. Used a 1/4 hex socket to remove screws from back of dryer, removed the screw from thermal fuse pulled out the fuse; inserted the new ones wires to prongs and screwed it back in. I did the same thing with the cycling thermostat. Terrific while I was in there; vacuumed all the dust out. Screwed the back on, put the vent hose on. $36...Very Happy!!! Also, viewed their video to access drum. Fixed the floppy fin inside dryer and vacuumed arount drum as well! BTW....I am a 65 year old woman!!! A very happy one! The initial job was about 20 min...doing vacuuming and drum repair was a lot longer as I had to hunt down washers to put on one of the fins so it wouldn't keep moving. Cleaning the fin of debri and lining it up etc Total time: maybe an hour and a half. TIP: People should wash their lint filters at LEAST once a year! Helps prevent overheating and fires! Thank you Part Select! Linda :)

I tried all standard tricks: checking circuitry, switches, etc. Then I read other submissions on your site, which suggested this thermal fuse was the culprit on almost 50% of cases. I got yours in 2 days, installed in no time, easy as pie. One caution: it will take an entire day if you forget to close the dryer door completely.

Dryer woudn't start.

Viewed the videos on PartsSelect site and determined the most likely (common) problem. Ordered the Thermal fuse and recommended Thermostat. Received in only two days with standard ground delivery. Took the back off the dryer, and it took all of 10 minutes to install the new components and vacuum out the lint that has accumulated and caused the overheating. Now this 10 plus year old dryer works perfectly for a total of only 36 dollars and some change. Can't beat that!!! Will definitely use PartSelect for other repairs.

The video for installing the cut-off kit was wrong for this model! The lower part of the cut-off kit that I removed looked exactly like the one in the video. However for my dryer, there was no orange wire. There was no need to splice the original wiring. The jumper was all that was needed. I did not realize this until I cut off the original female connectors. Once I cut them off and realized my mistake, I had to go hunting for new female ends to connect. Lowes and Home Depot don't carry ones big enough. In short, the video turned an easy repair into a big pain in the butt. The heating element and thermal fuse installed easily.
