First I watched a instruction video online.. It made the job easy. I have done it before but I did not remember exactly how to proceed, After watching the video i knew exactly what screws needed to be removed and what tool I needed for each step. Anybody sees the video before tackling this job, they can't go wrong.

Went on YouTube ,saw a video on how to diagnose and disassemble the dryer. Surprised how easy it was. I figured an appliance repairman would charge 100-150 so I would be wasting anything if I tried it myself.

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.

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.

I took the back panel off, after moving the unit away from the wall, and disconnecting the vent hose. I replaced the cycling thermostat, and high limit switch, and for good measure, I replaced the heating element as well. The diagnostic tips on the PartSelect website were very helpful. I cleaned all the accumulated lint out of the unit while it was apart, then reassembled it. The dryer is working just fine now!

Unplugged the cable and removed the air-vent hose. Removed the rear panel. Marked and removed the wires from both thermostats. Prior to replacing the new parts I used the vacuum and cleaned all of the excess lint and dust from the dryer. I then installed the new thermostat and fuse. Simple..

After getting the parts I remove the flex pipe then remove the back cover of the Dryer, then I discover a bird in the exhaust flex pipe and another one stock in the blower fan. The Birds was preventing the air from escaping from within the dryer and as a result we were getting a lot of steam build up inside the dryer. Once I removed the birds I went ahead and replace the parts anyway and the dryer has been working fine ever since. Replace the flex line. (The old parts are still good.)

We started with replacing a thermal fuse, went onto heating element & then to replacing the high limit thermostat. The replacements went very easily with your videos, but unfortunately it did not do the job & there is still no heat.
