First watched the video you sent me then changed out the parts in question. Slicker than pig snot on a door handle! Once back together we did a load of laundry. The unit worked like the day it was new.

I decided to repair it myself, and after ordering the part from partselect.com, and getting it very quickly I installed the heating element and, viola, the dryer works great again. All the info necessary for simple repairs is available online for most major applainces, and if you a little basic mechanical know-how, it isn't that hard. I just wish I would have just ordered the part from partselect.com right away!

I followed the excellent video instructions for dryer drive belt replacement. The tensioner proved to be a little tricky. I also had to fiddle the drum back into position. Now that I've actually done the repair, it would take half as long if doing it over.

I watched your video that was on the page with the part and followed exactly what he did. Removed the back; removed the element after unplugging the cap. Determined that there was a break in the coil by inspecting it. Bought the new part and replaced it exaclty as shown in the video. SUPER EASY!Thanks for the video instructions! It saved me tons of time. I cleaned the vents while I was at it. They needed it. Just pushed the lint out with a swiffer duster.

Every thing worked just no heat. Ordered the heating element without taking it apart. It arrived in 2 days. It wasn't the heater. Ordered the Thermal Cut-Off kit. It also arrived within 2 days. Due to my recovery from back surgery my niegbor put the parts in both times. So two disassembly and two assemblys. Total time was about 30 min. for both. Used only a 1/4 in nutdriver both times. Works like a dream.

No Heat

From the list of parts that most commonly fail causing the no heat condition I selected the most common part, the heating element. I replaced it according to the instructions on the associated video. It was very simple. Reinstalling a good vent for the dryer took longer. But the new heating element didnt fix the problem. So I replaced the termal fuse which was also very easy but also didn't fix the problem. At that point I decided to replace the dryer. In the process of recovering parts from the old dryer I noted a thin film of lint stuck to the smaller of the two thermostats. So I'd recommend first inspecting and cleaning all of the parts in the parts list before ordering new parts. But then begin with the most common failing part and working down the list. If you have some test equipment like a voltmeter, ohmmeter, or multimeter that would be a plus in isolating faults. Still, I'm a fan of PartSelect and would come here for other parts.

Pulled the back off, removed heating element and thermostat, installed new heating element and thermostat. This didn't fix my problem. Now I'm not sure what to do. I watched a video on diagnosing the problem on youtube. It helped me install the parts I bought. Now I'm not sure what the problem is as the ones I bought and installed didn't fix the problem. I guess diagnosing is my problem now.

Easy fix with thermal cut-off kit and cycling thermostat. I am not mechanical but the video was a great help. Even a meatball like me could do it!! But be very careful as the sides of of the back plate are very sharp and I cut my hand when putting it back on.

removed the screws from the back panel, located the heating element, disconnected the wires (make sure you look which ones are connected to which-I think there are 3), pulled out the old element, put in the new element, reconnected the wires, closed back cover and screwed shut. Worked great. Very easy to repair.
