Previous consumer help advised to check the Thermal Fuse. A quick check using an ohm meter or simply connecting the leads together, confirmed that the Fuse was open and bad. The other essential item is to clean & vacuum all lint from all other dryer parts on the top, drum & back of the dryer. Be sure to also perform a check of the Cycling Thermostat, located near the Thermo Fuse. This is not a difficult repair. Just be sure to disconnect the 220 V and the circuit breaker. A $9 fuse was better than the cost of a repairman or new dryer. Barry Burke, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Removed the old fuse and replaced with the new fuse. Of course, I had to remove the back of the dryer but very easy and the cost was less than $20.00. Definitely worth it because we did not have the money for a new dryer. PartSelect.com is awesome!

When the part came in my husband was not home and I figured I could put this part on myself. I took the part downstairs, used the nut driver to remove one screw, took the two wires off the old therma fuse, put the wires on the new therma fuse, and screwed the new therma fuse onto the back of the dryer. It really couldn't have been any easier.

removed back cover and with unit unplugged, removed one wire from each device (thermal fuses and switches) and measured with multimeter. Found thermal fuse open. Removed and looked up and ordered part. Installed fuse and buttoned er up and all good. Hardest part was putting the exhaust hose back on the floor outlet!

I watched the How-To videos on your site before deciding whether to do the repair myself or not. I found the instructional video was so informative and easy to do, that I ordered the parts. When I received the parts, I, again, watched the videos to aid in the removal of the old and replace with the new. I followed the instructions as I repaired. It was an easy fix. The hardest part was moving the dryer away from the wall and reconnecting the exhaust hose. My wife is happy again and I have peace and quite. Thank you, PartSelect. You're now on my favorites list.

I entered in the problem , part select told me what it might be. I ordered a heater coil and fuse. I watched the installation video , it looked easy enough. The parts came in 2 days I installed them in less that 15 minutes like in the video, and my dryer works like new. I was impressed with myself and part select. Thank you.

Well the video showed us taking off the back. Which wouldn't come off. Welded. Then we could not find the fuse in back of the unit or bottom. The second time we tried we found it in the front. We had to take off the front, bottom cover then we found the fuse. But, it didn't fix the problem. The unit is still on Casual load only. When we push the buttons the other lights light up but goes back to Casual. The unit is clear of lint and still drys but only at the Casual setting.

Gas burner would not fire.

First removed and checked the ignighter. It was fine. Next I located the schematic drawing and discovered that the burner, ignighter, and flame detector were all operated by one simple 110 volt circuit. This circuit did not power up when the dryer was cycled on. I pulled the dryer from the wall, removed the back panel, the vent etc. I then located the operating thermostat and the thermal fuze. The thermal fuze was open. (GOOD NEWS AN EASY FIX!!!) Thanks Guys
