Initial diagnoses suspected a faulty igniter. After deterininig that there was not power to the igniter I unplugged the dryer and systematically tested the continuity of each of the temperature limit swithches which all checked OK. The last item in the circuit is the thermal fuse which proved to be faulty. To confirm that this was the only problem I monentarily by passed the fuse to verify that the burner came on. To do all this I had to remove the fron panel and take out the drum. Actually the thermal fuse is located behind th back cover and is very easy to replace and probably should have been my fist go to suspect. Note the likely cause of the thermal fuse failure is a plugged up lint filter or exhaust duct which should be checked before installing a new fuse.

I watched the How-To videos on your site before deciding whether to do the repair myself or not. I found the instructional video was so informative and easy to do, that I ordered the parts. When I received the parts, I, again, watched the videos to aid in the removal of the old and replace with the new. I followed the instructions as I repaired. It was an easy fix. The hardest part was moving the dryer away from the wall and reconnecting the exhaust hose. My wife is happy again and I have peace and quite. Thank you, PartSelect. You're now on my favorites list.

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.

No heat, took a while to diagnose

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

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.

Went to your web site and found 40% of the time the thermal fuse is the problem. By using your site found how to locate fuse & test it. It took me 10 min to take out the old part & tested it to find it bad. I ordered the part which cost $10 & got it in 3 days. It took me 10 min to install it and the dryer is fine. This save me a big repair bill.

First I read about repair problems on this unit. Went to parts select help and read about my problem. I decided it could be the thermal fuse. When I took the vent off pipe off it had the starting of a birds nest in it. This plugging up the vent pipe caused over heating blowing the fuse. Thanks part select
