bought thermal fuse and thermostat as most likely. Took apart and checked with voltmeter and found the fuse open. Replaced it. Video instructions are helpful as is the part location in the drawings. Real problem was lint had built up in back vent area, blocking cooling/ burner intake air. Went through entire dryer and vacuumed it out

I removed the back panel of the dryer and the thermal fuse was about three quarters down the dryer. The exploded parts schematic was very helpful. I simply removed two screws to replace the thermal fuse and reinstalled the back panel. The dryer works great now.

Dryer would run but no heat to dry the clothes inside. The heating element had burned out.

I ordered a cycling thermostat and a thermal fuse to start with and put in the dryer. This didnt fix it so I then ordered a heating element. I took out the old one from the dryer and put in the new one that I ordered and received in a couple of days. It heats and runs like a new one now.Thanks for the quick service!

I simply unplugged the dryer and removed the backing. Once off I located the part which was in plain sight, unhooked the wires and attached them to the new part. Put backing back on plugged it in and turned it on and it worked.

The control panel won't leave Casual load.

Well the video showed us taking off the back. Which wouldn't come off. Welded. Then we could not find the fuse in back of the unit or bottom. The second time we tried we found it in the front. We had to take off the front, bottom cover then we found the fuse. But, it didn't fix the problem. The unit is still on Casual load only. When we push the buttons the other lights light up but goes back to Casual. The unit is clear of lint and still drys but only at the Casual setting.

Gas burner would not fire.

First removed and checked the ignighter. It was fine. Next I located the schematic drawing and discovered that the burner, ignighter, and flame detector were all operated by one simple 110 volt circuit. This circuit did not power up when the dryer was cycled on. I pulled the dryer from the wall, removed the back panel, the vent etc. I then located the operating thermostat and the thermal fuze. The thermal fuze was open. (GOOD NEWS AN EASY FIX!!!) Thanks Guys

Very easy to repair the heating element. I took the back off and half of it was burnt out (twice as long to dry). Replaced it and works like new. The instructional videos are great. I've replaced my water pump on my dishwasher also. Once again, instructional videos are great. I put trust in this website and their parts. I wouldn't have any worries about this site. Overall satisfaction A+.

Unscrewed the back panel. Unscrewed the heating element, disconnect the wires. Connect the wires to the new heating element and screw it back in place. Pull the thermal fuse off disconnect the wires from the old one and connect to the new one, then push back in place. Screw the back panel back in place. Put clothes in the dryer and start using. The dryer was back in use within 20 minutes after the parts arrived.
