I first examined the electrical diagram that came on the inside of the rear panel to determine where to check for loss voltage since this problem had all the tale,tale signs of a device not receiving power to turn on so I began at one end of the circuit and using my Fluke meter on the AC scale along with the electrical diagram found the thermal fuse opened.At that time I went to your site to see if I could buy this part and found you had it plus more so even though the thermo switch tested good I felt the need to replace it along with the thermo fuse as a set. I'm an electronic tech for a different type of machines but this was still just an electrical problem like the machines I work on daily.

Found Partselect, went to instant repairman read other peoples comments. I determined that I needed thermal fuse and thermal cut off kit. Ordered the parts early one morning, the parts came the next day. [Thank God!] I was expecting a long 3 to 5 business day wait. I watched the video to install. Took a few minutes to figure out about the jumper wire,[my dryer did not have the small wire] and low and behold, Grandma fixed the dryer saving herself a lot of money she needed to raise grandkids. Thank you so much!

Took the back off of the dryer, looked on "Parts Select" found what I thought might be the problem. Got the parts the next day. Put on new Thermal Fuse, Then put on Cycling Thermostat. Wasn't sure which it needed, so put both on. Put the back of the dryer on hooked the gas up, hooked up to Electric, & turned the dryer on. Back in business, everything works, dryer works as if nothing was wrong. Thanks to "Parts Select" Saved me a repair bill.

Learned that my Kenmore dryer was actually a Whirlpool model. Removed kick plate in front of dryer. Removed the cover to the blower wheel. Cleaned out Dryer with vacuum cleaner. Used a multimeter to check for continuity on all thermostats, fuse, and heating element. Decided it was the cycling thermostat. When ahead and replaced the fuse at the same time. Checked out the installation video on this site, wwwPartselect.com ( it was very helpful in understanding how to remove the cycling thermostat - needle nose pliers helps in pulling of the connect wire clips - knuckle buster). Ordered next day delivery. The parts were on my front door early next morning FEdEX ( i live in the very corner of the NW US). Nice!

Easy to follow videos on your site made this repair a breeze. I ended up having to replace the high temp cutoff as well but for 60 bux my dryer works like new. The repair man wanted $100 just to come look at it. Could not have done of without the easy to follow video.

First I unplugged the dryer. Took back off of dryer using nutdriver.Locating the thermal fuse, I replaced with the new one, then took cover off the heating element area and replaced it. This sounds like a pretty simple procedure to replace these parts, and with the help of the PartSelect diagrams, it became a simple task. I am not at all mechanically inclined, but I always look at instructions when assembling anything and this was easy!!
