I followed the handy video repair guide and had the new part in in less than 10 miuntes. I ordered the parts for my dryer at 3 pm on one day and i received the new parts by 10 am the next day, even though they said with standard shipping, it would be 3 to 5 days. Overall, it was very quick and easy.

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.

Belt Broke

I watched the video to know how to change the belt. I removed the front panel and slid the belt over the tub (you will have to pick the tub up a little). Then I reached around with one hand and slid the belt over the pulley. Then I used the same one hand to push the tensioner back and slip the belt behind it. You will be doing most of the work by feeling not by vision but that's where their video is helpful. I paused the screen on my laptop where it shows how the tensioner goes around the belt. Also when you slide the belt over the tub look for the grove the previous belt left for alignment. It took me 10 minutes.

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.

Took back panel off. Did not have a clue! Went to Partselect Web site,entered my problem,BAM! instant solution.Watched repair video and was surprised how simple repair looked.Heck I can do this,no problem! I work from 7 A.M. to 5 P.M. so theres no chance to stop by local appliance part store before they close. Ordered my parts from Partsselect,arrived in just two days. Followed video instructions ,completed job in thirty minutes or less! I also got important information regarding maintenance and cleaning dryer to prevent fire hazard.Thanks,for help and saving me time and money.When I have a problem in the future I now know where to go.

Installed both parts but still doesn't heat. Probably have to buy a dryer because a new element will be about $80. Your response and delivery time were great as were the instructions.

i replaced both the high limit and cycling thermostats because cost was not that much and these thermostats change settings as they age. After replacing the thermostats the problem was solved.

I watched the repair expert on you tube. Went to my dryer and took out the heating element, inspected it, and found a broken element wire. Ordered a new element and since I was in there I also replaced the high limit thermostat. Parts select made it easy and my dryer works great again. Thank you.

No Heat. Timer Wasn't Moving.

First I watched the videos to be sure these parts were easily accessible. After determining the heating element was the problem, I decided to change the other parts only because they were so simple to change. I paid just shy of $100 for parts and fixed the dryer myself, saving who knows how much from a service call. This was by far the easiest appliance repair I've ever done. Thank you PartSelect.

Click on the problem and find the possible solutions. Click on the part and watch the installation instructions. Unfortunately, mine was a bad thermostat/fuse that can only be purchased with the High Limit Thermostat which I had already purchased. What you might find helpful is that all thermostats and fuses should show continuity at room temperature when using an Ohm meter. Both purchases arrived within 30 hrs. of shipping. I was impressed. I ended up changing all three thermostats but was still way ahead considering a service call is $140 plus parts. I almost scheduled this service until stumbling onto this site thinking the heater was bad but was much cheaper than the local appliance/repair store. Again, the continuity test showed that the heater was fine and everything already mentioned above could be inspected and changed in less than 10 minutes.

Dryer stopped heating

I thought I would do it myself and figured that because it wasn't heating I would replace all the thermostats and thermal fuse. Because I wanted to get it going right away, I also ordered a timer just incase. Turns out it was the timer and not the thermostats or fuze. I have a virtually new dryer again. Replacing the parts was really easy and didn't take long. Word of advise is to use an electrical (ohm) tester to determine which part is faulty; this will also save money by not buying not-needed parts.

no heat during cycle

My grandson and I wiggled the dryer out of it's tight hole, turned it around and squeezed it back in to make room for the repair job. I followed the easy repair video on your site and removed the housing etc, vacuumed the lint collected over the past 6 years, replaced the heater coil and sensor, and had it back within an hour, with most of the time spent on cleaning lint. Thanks for the video!! This kind of DIY can be fun with the right info. Great bonding-time for generation gap, too. Dryer works like new.
