The back panel comes off with a nut driver bit, not a regular Philips head. I replaced the fuse and the heating coil. Carefully note how you take the thermostat off the old heating coil. You will have to put it back on the new heat coil just the same way. It differed from the video with the KEYS750lq2. Got it all on my first try. The dryer is capable of becoming very hot niw.

The thermal cutoff kit was bad. I followed the instructions in the video on the website to repair the dryer. According to some extra research that I did, the heating element is protected by the thermal cut off kit so there is a greater chance that the thermal kit will need to be replaced before the element will. There is a chance that the element could go bad, but more than likely it ise thermal cutoff kit.

I searched the symptoms on the PartSelect Website, decided to go with the recommended solution. Watched the video for replacing the suggested parts. Since I had already replaced the Blower Wheel and Motor on the dryer in the past I was familiar with removing what was required. The actual parts replacement was simple, and the result was a dryer that was operating properly once again. Thanks.

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...

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..

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

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!

Dryer was not drying the clothes. Had to cycle twice.

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.

After doing on line research at other sites, I bought an inexpensive multimeter, took off the back of the dryer, and started trying to figure out what part wasn't working. I might as well have tried to diagnose a jet engine problem, I didn't have a clue. Then I went to the Part Select site, and their stats showed that in 50% or so of the cases where a Roper doesn't start, you need a thermal fuse, and should also replace the cycling thermostat while you're at it. The "how-to" video showed me exactly what the parts look like, and where they are in the machine, and the cost of the parts plus delivery was less than $50!! It was worth taking the chance for $50. The parts came in two days, were installed in five minutes, the dryer works and I'm thrilled! Part Select is the absolute best. This is the first appliance repair I've ever done. I would never have done it without you. Thank you.

I followed the video link on the website step by step - that was much more helpful than reading the included instructions which seemed a little obscure for this layman. I thought for sure i would have to drop another $500 on a new dryer after buying my last one less than FOUR years ago! Ended up spending $40 including shipping which was super fast.I am now a dedicated fan of partselect and I know exactly where to go when my next appliance breaks..which they seem to do way too quickly now days.
