Dryer had no heat, my husband used a meter to check the current and the part we needed had no current. So we ordered the correct part, it took a few days to come then when UPS brought it, he hooked it up and put dryer back on and the dryer heated right up. The service from your company was above and beyond, Thank you, emails, tracking and fast service. We really appreciate your company who came through for us. The parts are authentic parts too. Thank you for having Paypal as a way to pay for the parts. It is the only way I pay for items on line.

dryer stopped working

Got the info from PartSelect that the door switch might be the problem, which confirmed my suspicions (as the dryer had lately been failing to stop when the door was opened), ordered the door switch (which had arrived in good time, BTW), installed the part after figuring out that the top panel of the dryer is fixed in place with the two screws accessible in the filter door opening. Put it all back together (that is, re-fixed the top panel with the two screws I'd had to remove), plugged it in, fired it up, ascertained that the repair had been successful, expressed appropriate thankfulness to God for an easier-than-imagined repair, cracked a celebratory brewed product, and commenced working through a hefty few piles of neglected laundry.

After I watched the video I read other people's repairs and used both to get the belt changed.The dryer is old, I believe it is from the 70's. We took the front off and then laid the dryer on its back for easier access, looped the belt as described on the video, turned the drum counter clock-wise and then reattached the front. It was very simple thanks to the video and other people's suggestions. Dryer works great and very happy it turned out to be an easy fix.

Dryer stopper heating

I replaced the element using the video as a guide. Very easy install; however, it did not fix the problem. Turned out to be one of the cycling thermostats. I used the video for that also. A little more difficult because you have to strip and reattach a few wires. A good wire stripper/crimper tool will make this job easy. I would suggest buying the element, both thermostats and the fuse at once. This increases your chances of fixing the issue the first time. For around $100 you will have a worry free dryer for years to come. Beats a new dryer.

Thermostat had no continuity.

I was able to make the repair by following the online video that parts select had posted. Within no time I had my dryer up and running. So easy even an 8 year old could have done it. I do recommend that you test every part with a multimeter to find out which part may be malfunctioning. Remember when testing with a mutimeter at its lowest setting in ohms,if a part you test has continuity the numbers on the meter will fluctuate. If a certain part does not have continuity the multimeter will remain at 0 or 1. What this basically means is that the part(heating element,thermostat,etc)is your problem because it has no continuity.

Dryer stayed on when door opened/would not start

My dryer started staying on when I opened the door to check the clothes, which I adapted to. Over the next few weeks, the dryer would not start at all. The website was very helpful in determining the possible parts needed to make the repair. The video shown was spot on and very helpful with its instructions on access to the part and replacing the part. The most time it took for me was cleaning behind the dryer and trying to remove the existing switch. I kept trying to squeeze the tabs on each side to get it past the tab and that wasnt working for me. Finally I took a small flat screwdriver and gently lifted the plastic on the switch up over the tab and that allowed me to pull and remove the switch easily. The whole time from start to finish for me was 45 minutes. Not bad for a 50 year old lady :) I have to say that this whole process has giving me alot of confidence in making basic appiance repairs. I have my partsselect.com magnet proudly displayed on my dryer and will not hesitate to use them again in the future.

Dryer not producing any heat

I did some research and found your website. I thought the thermostat was the problem and I ordered the thermal cut-off kit. I should have tested the existing thermostat first using a continuity tester but I didn't have that device. I installed the kit but still no heat. I kept on watching other videos about the no heat problem, then I was convinced the problem could be the source of the heat, the heating element. I ordered not only the heating element but the thermal fuse as well in case I need it, it is cheap anyway. When I opened the back panel and removed the old heating element, I found the coil burned out, broken and a cracked metal panel. I replaced it and now it's working like a brand new dryer. I didn't have to change the thermal fuse. I saved at least less than $500 from not buying a brand new dryer. Thanks to your helpful website. Impressive delivery, so quick.

The dryer opens up pretty easily; there are two screws holding the lint filter housing to the top panel that must be removed before the top will come up. The top panel pops open by prying it up with a screw driver. Once it's off there are two screws inside near the top that hold the upper front panel to the sides. There are also two screws that need to be loosened, but not removed, at the very bottom of the upper front panel, accessed by removing the lower front panel which is also popped out by prying (the upper part of the lower panel is pulled straight out, and is held to the bottom of the unit by hinge-like clips). Once the upper front panel is wriggled back the drum will slump off but stay pretty much in place while you set the panel aside (it has an electrical lead that goes to the door-closed sensor, but if you pop its clips loose in a couple spots you'll have enough slack to set it to the side). The drum pulls off easily. You might want to take a photo of the belt/pulley arrangement underneath it before removing everything, as it is not intuitively obvious how the belt runs thru the pulleys. Once the drum is gone vacuum up all that accumulated lint, then pop off the metal clips that hold the motor on. I was surprised at how little holds that motor on; apparently it's enough. Here is where I ran into my one snag: I couldn't unscrew the blower wheel from the motor shaft, and you have to get that fan off to get the motor out. You're supposed to clamp a wrench on the plastic fan just inside the dryer housing, and unscrew it by turning the shaft from the other side. No go. I eventually drilled a sequence of holes into the plastic around the metal shaft (easy) and could pull the motor out, but of course now I needed a $20 fan replacement. The motor and fan showed up in 2-3 days. Unfortunately, the motor came with a pulley that needed a narrower drive belt than my original. I guess I could have cut the original down, but i just went ahead and ordered a new one ($12). Everything went back together surprisingly easily. Getting the new fan on was much easier than getting that old one off.

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 :)

Watched the repair of a similar repair on a video and took off the heating tube which was found to be defective because it burned out the heating coils. Replaced the heating tube and it's working fine.
