Pulled the back off, removed heating element and thermostat, installed new heating element and thermostat. This didn't fix my problem. Now I'm not sure what to do. I watched a video on diagnosing the problem on youtube. It helped me install the parts I bought. Now I'm not sure what the problem is as the ones I bought and installed didn't fix the problem. I guess diagnosing is my problem now.

Took back panel off. Did not have a clue! Went to Partselect Web site,entered my problem,BAM! instant solution.Watched repair video and was surprised how simple repair looked.Heck I can do this,no problem! I work from 7 A.M. to 5 P.M. so theres no chance to stop by local appliance part store before they close. Ordered my parts from Partsselect,arrived in just two days. Followed video instructions ,completed job in thirty minutes or less! I also got important information regarding maintenance and cleaning dryer to prevent fire hazard.Thanks,for help and saving me time and money.When I have a problem in the future I now know where to go.

Followed video, very easy installation. Unfortunately, the new starter switch does not stay on either so we still have not resolved the problem.

Unplugged dryer. Removed control panel end caps, removed anchor screw at each end of control panel that had been covered by end cap. Tilted control panel up to access components on back side. Using tech sheet found inside contol panel, swapped motor relay with heater relay (they're identical). Plugged dryer back in, pushed start switch; dryer continued to run (problem identified). Unplugged dryer; replaced relays to original positions. Ordered new power relay (p/n 3405281). Installed new relay when it arrived, plugged dryer in, tested it. Dryer worked normally (problem fixed). Unplugged dryer, reinstalled control panel anchor screws and end caps. Plugged dryer back in. Dryer continues to work normally.

since dryers are hard for me to determine. I used my OHMs meter to see that the Thermal Fuse was good. The door switch was good . The off on switch was bad.

Your website described the probability of the problem as being one or both of the replacement parts I bought. You were right. I replaced the two parts and the dryer started and has been operating flawlessly ever since. I would also like to commend you on your very rapid shipping of the parts. I recieved them in less than 24 hours, via Fed-Ex Ground.

Installed both parts but still doesn't heat. Probably have to buy a dryer because a new element will be about $80. Your response and delivery time were great as were the instructions.

Clothes were coming out damp after the drying cycle.

i replaced both the high limit and cycling thermostats because cost was not that much and these thermostats change settings as they age. After replacing the thermostats the problem was solved.

Timer not moving and no heat.

First bought the Cycling Thermostat and Thermal Fuse. Installed. Still did not work.Next bought the Thermal Cut-Off Switch and the High Limit Thermostat. Installed. Still did not work. Then purchased the timer and installed. Still did not work. Finally tested the heat element with an on/off switch and wire. The heater worked. Changed the 2-pole 30 amp switch in panel box and the problem was solved. The parts were reasonable and easy to install. I left the new parts in and saved the old oned for the future, Parts delivery was quick. Will use parts Select in the future.

Click on the problem and find the possible solutions. Click on the part and watch the installation instructions. Unfortunately, mine was a bad thermostat/fuse that can only be purchased with the High Limit Thermostat which I had already purchased. What you might find helpful is that all thermostats and fuses should show continuity at room temperature when using an Ohm meter. Both purchases arrived within 30 hrs. of shipping. I was impressed. I ended up changing all three thermostats but was still way ahead considering a service call is $140 plus parts. I almost scheduled this service until stumbling onto this site thinking the heater was bad but was much cheaper than the local appliance/repair store. Again, the continuity test showed that the heater was fine and everything already mentioned above could be inspected and changed in less than 10 minutes.

I watched the repair expert on you tube. Went to my dryer and took out the heating element, inspected it, and found a broken element wire. Ordered a new element and since I was in there I also replaced the high limit thermostat. Parts select made it easy and my dryer works great again. Thank you.

No Heat. Timer Wasn't Moving.

First I watched the videos to be sure these parts were easily accessible. After determining the heating element was the problem, I decided to change the other parts only because they were so simple to change. I paid just shy of $100 for parts and fixed the dryer myself, saving who knows how much from a service call. This was by far the easiest appliance repair I've ever done. Thank you PartSelect.

My grandson and I wiggled the dryer out of it's tight hole, turned it around and squeezed it back in to make room for the repair job. I followed the easy repair video on your site and removed the housing etc, vacuumed the lint collected over the past 6 years, replaced the heater coil and sensor, and had it back within an hour, with most of the time spent on cleaning lint. Thanks for the video!! This kind of DIY can be fun with the right info. Great bonding-time for generation gap, too. Dryer works like new.
