I first came to the internet to resolve what was wrong. After finding the video I thought was correct I started. I used my volt/ohm meter to check the thermal fuse as instructed on the video and that was the problem. I ordered the new thermal fuse from PartSelect late in the day and it was in my hands the next evening. With in 20 minutes the dryer was doing what it was suppose to do. The hardest part was getting the back cover of the crier off and that wasn't to bad.

I cleaned out the vent inside and out. I removed the hose and checked the heat output, there was none. I ordered the Heating element, and the fuse as it was cheap enough not to have to go in a second time. I used a nut driver to remove screws, installed new part. The hardest was removing a small part from the old element that is needed to be added to the new Element. I switched on dryer to check for heat then replace back panel. I don think it has ever worked this well. I was bought 5 years ago from an unused model home.

dryer ran but did not heat.

I checked the site, diagnosis - need thermal fuse and it suggested replacing thermostat as well. Viewed the video. Removed dryer hose. Used a 1/4 hex socket to remove screws from back of dryer, removed the screw from thermal fuse pulled out the fuse; inserted the new ones wires to prongs and screwed it back in. I did the same thing with the cycling thermostat. Terrific while I was in there; vacuumed all the dust out. Screwed the back on, put the vent hose on. $36...Very Happy!!! Also, viewed their video to access drum. Fixed the floppy fin inside dryer and vacuumed arount drum as well! BTW....I am a 65 year old woman!!! A very happy one! The initial job was about 20 min...doing vacuuming and drum repair was a lot longer as I had to hunt down washers to put on one of the fins so it wouldn't keep moving. Cleaning the fin of debri and lining it up etc Total time: maybe an hour and a half. TIP: People should wash their lint filters at LEAST once a year! Helps prevent overheating and fires! Thank you Part Select! Linda :)

I tried all standard tricks: checking circuitry, switches, etc. Then I read other submissions on your site, which suggested this thermal fuse was the culprit on almost 50% of cases. I got yours in 2 days, installed in no time, easy as pie. One caution: it will take an entire day if you forget to close the dryer door completely.

Viewed the videos on PartsSelect site and determined the most likely (common) problem. Ordered the Thermal fuse and recommended Thermostat. Received in only two days with standard ground delivery. Took the back off the dryer, and it took all of 10 minutes to install the new components and vacuum out the lint that has accumulated and caused the overheating. Now this 10 plus year old dryer works perfectly for a total of only 36 dollars and some change. Can't beat that!!! Will definitely use PartSelect for other repairs.

went thru all the electrical connections, finally checked the thermal fuse..it was the culprit. next time I start there. unlike older dryers, where one component gos such as the drum belt or the heating element and its only 2 years old. This thermal fuse shuts down the entire unit when it malfunctions

Could not be any easier. For less than $20 and 15 minutes time, I couldnt be happier.
All that was needed is a nutdriver to remove a 1/2 dozen screws to take the back panel off. Then a phillips screw driver to remove the thermal fuse. Unplug 2 wires and then attach them to the new fuse. Put it all back together and done!. Working dryer.
PS: I had enough gas line and ducting connected to the dryer ,so thatt I was able to get behind it with out removing them. This may have taken another 15 min. if I needed to do this and two adjustable wrenches.

I took one piece off at a Time. Made sure that each wire went to the correct place. I felt so good as a woman to be able to fix a necessity in our House without having to call a repairman to fix it for us. We are 3 women in our New Home. Im 46 My life partner is 48 and Our Daughter 17. I can't tell you how thankful i am for watching your video on how to do it. Thanks Part select. Dena , Ave & Fe .
