When the part came in. I unplugged the dryer. Pulled it away from the wall and took the back off. I pulled the wires off the old fuse and plugged them in the new fuse, then unscrewed the on nut that held the old fuse. Then slid the new one in and put the nut back on. Plugged the dryer in and it worked. So I unplugged the dryer and put the back on.

Used wire schematic and locate thermal fuse. Disconnect power and remove rear panel. About 8 screws. Remove the two wires from fuse and check fuse continunity. Fuse was open and prevented power from going to gas solenoids. Replace fuse and clean exhaust ducts. Dirty ducts might have caused fused to over heat.

I went on the PartSelect site and watched some videos to determine what could be wrong. I almost guessed and bought the wrong part as there were a few. I ended up spending $17 for a multi tester. Once I determined that the thermal fuse was bad. I just followed the instructions from the video and replaced it. Took me more time figuring out what part was bad and buying the tester than actually replacing the part. Very glad I bought the multi tester watched the videos. After that it was easy.

This was so easy.On Parts Select I looked through the options of what might be wrong when my dryer stopped working. After ruling out any power problems and checking the door switch I moved onto the next possibility which was the thermal fuse. Although I did not have the equipment to check the old fuse to see if it was still functional, I took a chance and ordered the new thermal fuse for my model # dryer. At a total of around $20 (about 2/3 of that was expedited shipping at my choice) it was worth it to me to give this a try before calling a repairman for what might be a bigger and more expensive problem. The fuse came within 48 hours and I logged back onto Part Select to watch the very simple video of how to install. I removed the six screws from the back panel of my drier,located the old theremal fuse, removed the one screw securing it, disconnected the 2 wires from the old thermal fuse (which looked a little browned around the edges)and reattached the 2 wires to the new thermal fuse in the same manner. I then reattached the new fuse with the one screw and put the back panel back on my dryer. Set the time, and pressed the start button and it fired right up. So happy I didn't have to pay $200 plus for this simple repair. Trust me when I say you can do this yourself. Very straight forward and simple installation. Good Luck!

Dryer stopped drying

We had initially ordered the wrong parts, but I called them to send one of the parts back. While I was on the phone with the rep, we ordered what I thought would be the right part. By this time I had been without a dryer for 5 days. It was about 4 in the afternoon. I asked the rep if we could possibly get the part the next day, and she politely stated that she didn't think so. But, the very next afternoon, the part was sitting at my door! I replaced the part easily while watching the you-tube on their website, and had the dryer running like new again in about 10 minutes! And I am a woman! I saved $300 instead of buying a new dryer. We have ordered from Partsselect before, and will continue in the future. I would recommend them to anyone who has any kind of appliance repair issue.
