Clothes not drying

I cleaned out the vent inside and out. I removed the hose and checked the heat output, there was none. I ordered the Heating element, and the fuse as it was cheap enough not to have to go in a second time. I used a nut driver to remove screws, installed new part. The hardest was removing a small part from the old element that is needed to be added to the new Element. I switched on dryer to check for heat then replace back panel. I don think it has ever worked this well. I was bought 5 years ago from an unused model home.

I followed the repair instruction video from the web site and the repair went just like the video. Before I viewed the video, I didn't even imagine I could make this repair myself. The replacement switch was exactly the same as the original from the factory. Everything went well and it was a pleasant experience. Our dryer is working just fine now.

The door switch was not clicking on & off & I thought that was the problem. Went on line to find out how to get the switch out. I then removed the switch got the part # & ordered the new switch. The switch was sent by Fed Ex & delivered the day after I ordered it, I installed it the same day & the dryer is now operating.

Removed front and back covers on dryer, screws on top and down one side to spread cabinet to remove drum,removed blower cover to get access to shaft nut on that side. The other is accessible. I found that both shafts can bethe longer of the two that were sent. The shorter shaft is too short and needed to be modified to let the roller come outward to lay in the grove in the drum. I will get a longer shaft and replace it.

I first came to the internet to resolve what was wrong. After finding the video I thought was correct I started. I used my volt/ohm meter to check the thermal fuse as instructed on the video and that was the problem. I ordered the new thermal fuse from PartSelect late in the day and it was in my hands the next evening. With in 20 minutes the dryer was doing what it was suppose to do. The hardest part was getting the back cover of the crier off and that wasn't to bad.

belt replacement

first I took a flat head screw driver to pop the top of the dryer open, and then removed the screws from the lint tray. Next I lifted the lip back making sure it was supported by the wall behind. Third I removed the front of the unit by removing the bolts attached on both ends of the top of the unit. I then opened the door and removed the screws on the right top side of the lining of the door to the switch. Then I carefully held onto the tub while lifting the front face of the unit to remove the face of the dryer. After carefully removing the face I released the tub and set it aside. Then I picked up the tension pulley set it back in its slot followed by placing the belt rib side down around the tub. Next step was to place the tub back in the unit making sure the felt was in place and then I ran the belt back through the tension pulley applying tension in order to get the belt back onto the motor making sure the ribs of the belt aligned up with the ribs on the motors belt drive wheel. After completing that I then grabbed the front panel of the dryer unit and gently replaced the panel making sure that the slots and hooks lined up while placing the tub back in alignment of front panel. Once that was complete I replaced the screws in the door switch followed by replacing the bolts in the inside of the top comer of the front panel till hand tight. Last but not least I slid the lint tray back in place in order to make sure screws did not fall in to the hole the lint tray occupies. After replacing the screws I then plugged in the dryer gave the tub a few spins with my hand to make sure it was in place correctly I gave it a test drive by leaving the door open and pressing the door switch shutting off the light in the unit so it since the door was shut and turn the unit on for a cycle for at least one minute to see if the tub rolled freely on its own. All was good and only took 12 minutes to change and replace part. Easley can be done by any DIY first timers. Me I work with all kinds of units but the older units are easy and no need for a tech I promise.

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.

dryer belt broke

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.
