My dryer was made so the fan was not removable and I had to reach through a narrow opening in behind the fan housing to put the belt on the motor pulley. The problem I encountered was that I could only use one hand to push against the idler pulley spring while at the same time try to catch the belt and slip it under the idler pulley. It repeatedly slipped off and every time it did the spring and idler pulley would come loose, and I would have to realign the the idler pulley shaft and attach the spring. After the fifth time I left the spring off, pushed the idler pulley shaft all the way in and put scratch a mark on the shaft on the inside of the first hole it enters. Next I drilled 1/16" hole in the shaft where I marked it, installed the spring and idler pulley then slipped a small cotter pin in the hole I drilled. Now if it slips off I only need to reach back and push the idler pulley up and catch the belt.

Dryer would not start.

I tried all standard tricks: checking circuitry, switches, etc. Then I read other submissions on your site, which suggested this thermal fuse was the culprit on almost 50% of cases. I got yours in 2 days, installed in no time, easy as pie. One caution: it will take an entire day if you forget to close the dryer door completely.

Dryer woudn't start.

Viewed the videos on PartsSelect site and determined the most likely (common) problem. Ordered the Thermal fuse and recommended Thermostat. Received in only two days with standard ground delivery. Took the back off the dryer, and it took all of 10 minutes to install the new components and vacuum out the lint that has accumulated and caused the overheating. Now this 10 plus year old dryer works perfectly for a total of only 36 dollars and some change. Can't beat that!!! Will definitely use PartSelect for other repairs.

The dryer was very noisy when running.

Disassembled front & top of dryer, removed drum & replaced belt, idler pulley & one support wheel (which was the problem). Reassembled drum, top, & front of dryer. Tested good, much quieter.

Door switch failure prevented drier operation. This could be confirmed by the fact that the interior light was also not working.

Pulled drier away from wall six inches. Pulled the plug for the drier power cord out of the wall socket and hooked it up so it would not fall down behind the drier, thereby knocking loose the vent hose. Removed two screws from front of filter housing opening (right of drier top). Lifted up drier top (lid) from the front and secured it in the up position using a stout strap with hooks on both ends. A prop is not a safe way to hold up the lid. Lid is held down only with mildly stubborn friction catches. Door switch was seen looking down along the inside of the drier front on the right side. There was nothing else in that area to cause confusion. Opened drier door and removed two vertical screws that secure the door switch to the front panel of the drier. Lifted the now-free switch and unplugged it from the wire socket. Plugged in replacement switch securely. Replaced the screws securing the new switch to the front panel. Checked that all wiring was back in place and clear of the drier drum. Lowered the drier top. Replaced the screws into the filter housing. Plugged the drier in. Tested the operation of the drier. Checked out spouse's smile. IMPORTANT - Checked that drier vent hose was still firmly in place. Pushed it back in place.

I followed instructions from video -- although the model used in the video was different, the approach was similar. Really the only difficulty was laying on my back (72 years old) and, with one hand and through feel alone (work area was not visible), getting the belt on the drive sprocket and the spring loaded wheel.

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.

Broken Dryer Belt

Must remove 2 screws in the lint screen port anchoring the top of the dryer. Next the front panel of the dryer is removed from the machine by pulling up with a putty knife disassembling the clip holding the front in place. 2 more screws are then removed holding front panel of the dryer. The doors sensor switch is then removed freeing the front panel to be removed. At this point after the front panel is off and the top of the dryer lifts in an upwards position and you can now see the tub and the broken belt. The belt has to be reinserted around the tub into the pulley assembly before being pulled onto the motor. The pulley lifts upward towards the tub if it was put on correctly. It has to be placed underneath the pulley in order to have tension put on the belt firming the connection between the tub and motor. To reassemble just reverse what you have taken off in that order. Their is a DYI video which shows the process perfectly. Have a good one !

Went thru all the electrical connections, finally checked the thermal fuse. . It was the culprit. Next time I start there. Unlike older dryers, where one component gos such as the drum belt or the heating element and its only 2 years old. This thermal fuse shuts down the entire unit when it malfunctions
