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.

For the door switch: I watched the supplied video first. Unplugged the dryer from the electrical outlet. Lifted lid to lint filter and removed 2 screws. Then wedged a putty scraper between the top lid and the front of the dryer, about an inch from each edge and pushed the scraper in and then up to loosen the catch. Did this on both ends. Lifted the lid and then opened the dryer door and removed 2 scews to the door switch. Then I pried off the plug from the door switch. There is a small tab in the center on each side you have to press down to get the plug apart. I installed the new door switch by pushing the two plug ends together and then put the door switch in the opening where the old one was and screwed it back on. I closed the lid and screwed the 2 screws back in by the lint filter opening. For the Push to Start Switch: I removed the top rear cover with the 1/4 nut driver. Pulled off the knob on the front side of the dryer. Pushed down on the tab that was at the top of the switch housing from the inside of the dryer and then had to turn it a little so it would fit thru the opening. Then I unplugged it and got the new switch and plugged it together and inserted it in the opening and turned it about a quarter turn and pressed it in a little until the tab was secured. Put the knob back on and then screwed the back cover back on. Good to go. Works like a charm. Was very easy to repair and I am a woman, so now anyone can do it. :)

I made it very difficult. I didn't research the repair. My back is old. It's easier if you just You Tube a video. The top roller you have to take drum completely out. The bottom one, The one that failed for me, you can actually do it without taking anything apart. Access it at bottom back, two holes. I do not have small hands, it would have been easier. Channel Locks inside, 9/16th socket outside. That will loosen main axle. Then use short screwdriver or socket driver on small bracket connected to bottom of unit. Mine had one screw holding it in. Easy bottom fix. I don't really recommend replacing top till it needs it. You can only buy them by the pair too. You will be ready when time comes. I found top roller didn't actually need replacing, did it cause I had it all apart. Don't fix if not broke, right? Trust, BUT, Verify. Smaller hands, would have helped me. All I got.

Replace Drive Belt

What a pain in the butt to route the belt thru the tensioner! There's room for only one hand in there. The guys who do this for a living must have some secret. My solution was to drill a 3/16 hole thru the side, make a j-hook from 8-32 threaded rod, use that and a wing nut to pre-load the tensioner, route the belt, then slowly back off the wing nut until the belt was tight. It works. . . .

first I unplugged the dryer. Then I removed the back of the dryer with a 1/4" nut driver. with the back off using the same 1/4" nut driver I removed the one screw that holds the cycling t-stat slowly remove the t-stat and take one wire off at a time and plug it onto the new t-stat once all wires are replaced. place the t-stat back in and secure with the screw. Then put the back of the dryer back on. put the dryer vent hose back on. plug in and away you go. repair done. If that doesn't fix it. Then the next step is probably to check the gas valve coils. That is a little more difficult repair but not to hard.

Dryer would start and run but no heat was produced.

Watched several videos online and was suggested that the thermal fuse was bad, so i replaced it but no fix. So i checked the previews Q&A from other costumers and watched the videos on how to replace different parts. I first looked thru the peep hole on the bottom left part of the dryer and saw the igniter glow for about 10 sec every minute but no flame would start. So i replaced the igniter, the flame sensor, and the coils all at once. I know thats not the proper way to troubleshoot something but i was gonna take the drum out and everything so mind as well replace them all. Dryer works like new and dont have to listen to the wife complaint anymore!!!

Super easy repair. Just removed the back panel, took out the old heating element, plugged in the new one and put it back together. I had also replaced the element in a similar Whirlpool dryer in one of my rental properties a few months ago and it was just as easy. Between the two repairs I saved between $200 and $300 in repair labor. PartsSelect always has the parts I need in stock, ships quickly and their installation videos rock. I have also used them for repair parts on microwaves & refrigerators in the past. Excellent vendor. Highly recommended.
