I came home from work to notice the dryer singing a different tune than usual. I opened the door and noticed that the tub wasnt turning. I popped the top of the dryer up to find a disentigrated belt. Fired up the computer and in a few minutes had ordered the $8 ($15 including shipping) replacement belt. 3 Days later took the shopvac and cleaned up the lint and broken belt pieces. Installed the new belt and was back in business with my 8 year old dryer. ** The only complaint comes from my wife who got her hopes up for a new front load washer and dryer** thanks partselect for saving my wallet in more than one way!

Remove two screws on top holding the filter frame.Use flat screwdriver to snap top at front off front panel.Swing top up and secure it against wall or tie in place. Remove screws holding front panel and kick panel to side panels.Did'nt remove back panel.Remove drive belt from pully wheel and then use belt to lift out drum.Use open end wrench on motor pully at rear and I used a socket set on the front of motor,Push down on wrench,counter clockwise,and hold the front pully from moving mine came right off. My dryer is over 10 yrs so the electric conection was changed but the instruction sheet explained how to change the wires,just follow the wire color,easy.

Everyone said changing a dryer belt was a piece of cake.They did not tell the truth it is a difficult job. I am a 52 year old female and I had a problem. You have to take the whole drum out. I finally completed the job but i had to prop the drum up with blocks so I could screw in the front panel. I think for those who want to change the belt I would go smoother with two people so the can hold things in place while the other one screws the panels back. I also think taking the dryer door off make the front panel a lot more easier to put in palce.

I found some help on-line that suggested some of the most likely causes. The on-line videos showed how to remove clips/panels to access the parts. Once I found the possibly failed parts, door switch and thermal fuse, I did a quick continuity check and found that the thermal fuse had an open circuit.

timer runs but dryer wont start (fuse was not closed)

My black very cool 15 year old Kithenaid electric dryer stopped working. No power. I tried the timer and it was still clicking like it was working. I opened the door then pushed the on button and heard a click which made me feel the door switch and on button were working. I replaced the cycling thermostat and thermal fuse and everything is fine. I wish i would have bought the other thermostat as I was right there and it was not that much. Dyer is working fine. This site is great. My repair guy moved out of state...I also disassembled the vent tube and vacuumed out all sorts of stuff and vacuumed the motor and all the area I could get to with the back, top and lower cover removed and waxed the dryer.

no heat in dryer.

Very simple. Removed rear panel, fuse and thermostat on exhaust vent was immediatly recognizable. Made sure entire vent was clean. However, the problem was NOT resolved. Now looking for an alternate answer...

These parts didn't fix the problem. Went to you-tube watch a video on how to repair a gas dryer step by step and which parts to replace. Found out we had replace the wrong parts and ordered the coils and now it works!!! Next time I will watch a video, first then order, this will save us time and money!

Using a stiff putty knife I depressed the clips that hold the top down. I loosened the screws at the lower edge of the front panel and removed the two 5/16 head screws that hold the front on. I unplugged the door switch and lifted the front off the lower screws. I removed the drum and the broken belt. I replaced the rear rollers after applying some dry lube to the shafts and replaced the tension spring and rolled. I replaced the drum and belt and attached the belt to the small pulley on the motor. Then checked the rear gasket felt and reinstalled the front cover and the top.

You guess that it is the heating element. They are like a light bulb, they do fail. I took the back off the dryer and removed the heater element. There is a temperature switch that needs to be removed. Examining the element, you could see a break in the element wire. That part was broken. The repair went smooth and the replacement heater assembly looked the same as the old one in design. I had to reset the dryer control and the dryer is good again.

Unscrewed the back panel. Unscrewed the heating element, disconnect the wires. Connect the wires to the new heating element and screw it back in place. Pull the thermal fuse off disconnect the wires from the old one and connect to the new one, then push back in place. Screw the back panel back in place. Put clothes in the dryer and start using. The dryer was back in use within 20 minutes after the parts arrived.

By following the repair video available, I took off the top and front panel of my dryer, removed the drum, removed the old drum support rollers, vacuumed out the inside of the dryer (so much lint!), replaced the drum support rollers, and put the dryer back together. Dryer runs like brand new and is very quiet. Repair was extremely easy to do. Got the replacement parts in about 2 business days. PartSelect repair videos make the repair easy too! Lots of satisfaction for a girl to repair her own dryer!

Can't stop laughing about the mistake I almost made, before I even looked on internet I called Sears and scheduled a repair appointment, $80.00 just to have someone come out and tell me what my problem was not to repair it but to tell me whats wrong. And I told them the belt had broken I heard it when it snapped. Long story short version I found your website and entered appliance information, found part for $15.00 but also found on-site video clearly making the needed repair. Clear step by step instructions taking only 8 minutes looked very easy so I took a chance ordered the part two days later part arrived so I went into basement armed with laptop and tools. MAN it was easy.... too easy ....worked out fine video was spot on. Thanks you guys are a great company
