After removing the front of the dryer it was evident that the blower boss had broken where the motor shaft comes through and is attached. I removed a few more parts to make the blower more accessible and removed it. I then machined a new boss and attached it to the blower and reinstalled it.I then did a quick continuity check on the three thermostats since the dryer was already apart.I discovered one was faulty and ordered a new one from you.That repair took all of five minutes.The irony of the whole thing is that while I was ordering the thermostat from you,I asked out of curiosity,if the blower was still available. As it turns out it still is but the new machined part worked out great and the dryer was back up and running in no time.

Thanks again,
Dave

Removed back cover of entire dryer.The thermostat was accessible from that point(Just as diagram showed), removed two wires from thermostat, removed thermostat & replaced with new thermostat & plugged 2 wires back in just as instructions indicated. Very simple,15 minute job. I will certainly use again for any appliance repairs.

After replacing the heating element and the thermal fuse, with no success, these parts completed the full electronic components for the heat system. I'm not sure which part was the culprit, these three additional parts fixed the dryer. The repair was fairly simple and the videos for the repair were extremely helpful. The only suggestion that I have is to be sure which connection blade you cut off on the provided wire to replace as shown in the Thermal Cut-off Video. On my model, one connection blade is slightly larger than the other. If you cut-off the wrong end, you will create a little more work for yourself.

Stopped drying....little heat in drum but clothes not dried after 45 min.

Not knowing exactly what needed to be replaced I used the in-site questionnaire and followed through to problem and then ordered the first two items suggestions. Turned out the Heating Element Connection Wire Kit was redundant and not needed as the Cycling Thermostat included two such wire kits. I watched the video on the site and that gave me a fairly good idea how to proceed. I removed the back panel, lot of small screws, and then the Thermostat was easy to see. There are two similar looking parts but after closer look only one matched the new thermostat. Super easy, just remove wires and old thermostat and replace with new item and then before actually reinstalling back panel I put a load of damp clothes to dry. Half hour later...Wallaaa...problem resolved. Good luck with your fix. Oh, there is a sheet referencing to set the new thermostat if needed to a certain limit, however using old thermostat with its embedded model # found that factory setting for new one was fine. So, no need to reset.

Sqealing noise and extended drying time

Followed online youtube directiond to dissassemble dryer cabinet. Everything is readily accessible and belt and idler are easily installed. Comments from others express frustration at the instability of the idler pulley bracket. The key is to keep seating pressure on bracket until the belt is installed at which time the belt supplies continuous pressure to seat the bracket. The bracket is very stable so long as moderate force is applied to hold the brackett in the seat. The belt install is counter intuitive in that the ribbed side of the belt is installed in contact with the drum instead of the flat side. The readon for this is so the belt ribs seat in the grooves of the motor pully and provide greater friction. Flat side of the belt on the drum places the flat belt on the grooved pulley with much reduced contact area.

Went on YouTube ,saw a video on how to diagnose and disassemble the dryer. Surprised how easy it was. I figured an appliance repairman would charge 100-150 so I would be wasting anything if I tried it myself.
