I watched the step by step video to begin. the video is very helpful...it will tell you exactly what to do and how to do it step by step...i pulled off back panel...found thermal fuse, and replaced..reassembled and started it up...full heat...working like brand new. i probably saved at least 100.00 by not having a service man come to fix it. i also replaced parts on my whirlpool dishwasher last fall...100 % satisfied with the parts and the helpful hint,tips, and how to videos to fix appliances...i ll never call a service man again for appliance repair...very easy to replace parts..

Just turned it on one day and nothing happened. Checked the outlet to see if it was hot to rule out a tripped fuse.

Luckily I have a very mechanically minded son who immediately went to the your website, entered problem, found diagnosis. He removed the back of the dryer, found that th thermal fuse did indeed look bad. We sent for the new part, had it with in a few days, and it took him 5 minutes to have my dryer back in business!

With a few hours of research online I found a site to help me diagnose what was going wrong with the dryer. After another hour of tracking down my multimeter (not thinking to just bypass the fuse) it tested bad. So after all the additional time to diagnose the problem, coupled with the two-days to get the part from Partselect, the repair took less than 15 minutes! Now I actually have a use for the multimeter I got from a computer class all those years ago...

First I unpluged the dryer.I disconnected the vent remove 9 screws to take the back off. Remove the screws that held the thermostat & fuse, carefully remove the wires from the old ones and put them on the new ones. Places them back in places and put the screw back in. Replaced the back,put the vent back on, pluged it in and turn it on. Every thing worked properly. I watched the video before, I was well pleased with everything. Leo

This is my second repair using your parts. There was a problem with the electrical of the house that was also causing the dryer to fail. Other than that, I learned a great deal the first time around about my dryer the first time I order parts from you. It was easy to fix the dryer back then. Now that I have the electrical and the dryer fix so easy I have a wife that is drying clothes like a maniac. Thank you; Juan from Ocala, Florida.

Well first let me tell you I am 64 yrs old and female. Thank you so much for the video. That was the life saver. I followed instructions from the video and yes it was as easy as the gentleman said. The hardest part was moving the dryer out. I also ordered a thermostat and cut off thermostat. The dryer works just perfectly now. Thanks again for making it so simple for a lady like me.

Saw no heat, web said probably the fuse. Replaced the fuse. Nope. Second guess was the thermostat at the exhaust. Replaced that. Nope. Finally got to actively troubleshooting and isolated one of the thermostats near the heating element. Replaced that and everything is fine. So now I have a good spare fuse and thermostat for the next repair. There was one tool I wished I had, a socket small enough to open the back. I had to use pliers and that was a pain. Other than that the repair was almost trivial, just unplug the bad one and plug in the good one.

Dryer would not start after it had been opened to remove an item.

Disconnect the power cord. Unhook the dryer vent hose. Remove the back. Find the Thermal Fuse. Use a ratchet and socket to remove socket head screw that holds the Thermal Fuse in place. Disconnect one of the two wires from the old Thermal Fuse and attach the wire to the new Thermal Fuse ensuring the wire is placed on the same end of the new Thermal Fuse as the old Thermal Fuse. Repeat procedure for the remaining wire and screw Thermal Fuse back in place. Replace the back, reattach the dryer vent hose and connect the power cord.

Removed the back panel, found the fuse and replaced it. Easiest thing I've ever done! I was expecting it not to be the problem, but I started with the "most common" issue via the website. Voila...it was the problem!

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.
