clothes not drying very well to not at all

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.

Took the back off, separated the heat element from the machine, marked all wires so they would go back to the original spot. Was not necessary since the clips were different sizes. Put in new part and reassmbled.

We took towles from the washer that had still contained more water, the spin cycle must have had a problem.

I felt the belt had broken since the unit was still running. I went on-line looked at some you tube movies to get some idea what to do. Was very helpfull. Found on-line how to get the part forb this nearly 20 year old dryer. Had the part shipped overnight, was able to track it. Followed your innstallation instruction, With the heavy rubber bands hooks at both ends it was easy. Never done this before, sure saved a good amount of money.

First I removed the lint screen from the top of the machine and then the 2 Phillip head screws that where located under the lint screen door. Next I used a Flathead screwdriver to lift the top of the dryer from the bottom and propped it up against the wall in back of my dryer, next i removed the two screws from the inside front corners of the dryer with a ratchet and the appropriate size socket. I then removed the bottom front panel of the dryer with my Flathead by prying it off at the clips once removed I had access to two screws near the bottom, i loosened them with my ratchet and socket, I pulled out the top of the front panel with the dryer door open as I supported the drum with my free hand. once I removed the front panel I then removed the drum and set it aside. I took this opportunity to vacuum out all the dust from the bottom of the machine and the burner. I then removed the screw from the bottom of the first drum support wheel then i pried the clip off the drum support wheel axle Pulled off a second clip that held the wheel in place then i removed the broken wheel. I removed the back clip which was already cracking i put on the new clip, the new wheel and then the second clip, long story short I replaced the other drum support wheel which was still good but since i had everything apart i went on and replaced it too. I then put the drum belt on the drum, and I positioned the drum in place and put the front panel back on i put the top screws back in then i routed the belt around the tensioner and put it back in place. I rolled the drum all away around while pulling the drum gasket out and placing it in its proper position before i tightened the rest of the screws i plugged the machine in and checked to see if it was working as it should it was so i unplugged the machine and tigthend everything after i put the machine back together i dried a load and while running i went into our bedroom and asked my wife "do you hear that"? She said "no" and asked me what was she supposed to hear. We purchased the dryer used about seven years ago and it never ran as quiet as it does now. Its so quiet you can actually hear a click and then the sound of the burner kicking in.

The replacement that was ordered was a perfect fit for the worn part and merely required placement into the lint screen area. The entire procedure, from ordering the part, to installation was amazingly easy. I would not hesitate to order future parts from PartSelect.

Dryer buzzed when trying to start

First off, I ordered the part around 1 pm, paid regular shipping, and it was here the very next day! As for the repair, maybe the easiest fix I have done. Make sure the dryer is unplugged, pop the top up and remove the front of the dryer. Take out the pulley (careful it can snap ya) then remove the drum. The snap rings around the motor can be tricky, so be sure to watch the video sent to you from PartSelect. With a couple of wrenches, loosen the motor from the blower and remove. Put new one in and put back together. Piece of cake. Took me about 20-25 mins. This is the best place I've ordered from and will continue to get my supplies here. Good Luck!

This was an easy fix. No need to purchase a new dryer! I had replaced this part previously about 4-5 years ago. We wash a lot of clothes with our family of 5. Watched the video. Wires were easy to replace on the machine because it was logical (i.e. bottom wires attach at the bottom and front wires attach to front, etc.). Dryer was up and running fast! Part was shipped Monday afternoon and I received it by Wednesday afternoon with the regular shipping method. Altogether AWESOME! Dryer working like a charm.
