Clothes getting hot, but not getting dry

Verified that the heater element was working; drum and contents were getting hot. Could hear the thermostat clicking on/off as the element started to glow. Drum stayed very steamy the entire time; consistent with no airflow. Fan motor was running, dryer vent/line were clear. Verified cold (not hot) air from the external vent. Seals had degraded to the point that the fan was not drawing air from the drum, but from inside the dryer cabinet at the lower seal (by the fan blades); hot air was escaping from the upper seal and was causing the dryer cabinet to get unusually hot. Installed these 2 seals, and the dryer is working perfectly now.

TURN OFF POWER TO DRYER............................. Pay attention to where everything is as you take it apart, so it can be put back the same way. Take out the two screws by the lint screen. Use flat tip screwdriver between space in front of top to help lift top. Use rag on tip of screwdriver so as not to scratch it. Take out two screws inside the front panel at the top. One on each side. Unhook the switch wiring. Lift up the front panel to take off. The tub will be loose, so it can be taken out to inspect other components. Some call the tub a drum. Be sure to see how the belt tensioner is attached, so it can be put back on the same way, if it comes loose. It is under the tub. Take out old belt. Put new belt around tub. Make sure the tub sets on the two rollers in the back of dryer. While holding tub, put the belt around the grooved pulley on the motor. Grooves are face down against the tub. Feed belt through the tensioner. Put the bottom of front in on the tabs. Be sure belt is still in place around pulley and tensioner etc. Hold tub through front door and close front. Put the two screws back in on each side. Close top and put the two screws in at the lint screen. Done. Turn power back on. Turn on dryer to see if it operates properly. If not, check out your repair to see if everything is connected properly.

Used wire schematic and locate thermal fuse. Disconnect power and remove rear panel. About 8 screws. Remove the two wires from fuse and check fuse continunity. Fuse was open and prevented power from going to gas solenoids. Replace fuse and clean exhaust ducts. Dirty ducts might have caused fused to over heat.

Dryer would not heat up.

I went on the PartSelect site and watched some videos to determine what could be wrong. I almost guessed and bought the wrong part as there were a few. I ended up spending $17 for a multi tester. Once I determined that the thermal fuse was bad. I just followed the instructions from the video and replaced it. Took me more time figuring out what part was bad and buying the tester than actually replacing the part. Very glad I bought the multi tester watched the videos. After that it was easy.

From the list of parts that most commonly fail causing the no heat condition I selected the most common part, the heating element. I replaced it according to the instructions on the associated video. It was very simple. Reinstalling a good vent for the dryer took longer. But the new heating element didnt fix the problem. So I replaced the termal fuse which was also very easy but also didn't fix the problem. At that point I decided to replace the dryer. In the process of recovering parts from the old dryer I noted a thin film of lint stuck to the smaller of the two thermostats. So I'd recommend first inspecting and cleaning all of the parts in the parts list before ordering new parts. But then begin with the most common failing part and working down the list. If you have some test equipment like a voltmeter, ohmmeter, or multimeter that would be a plus in isolating faults. Still, I'm a fan of PartSelect and would come here for other parts.

I opened up the instrument panel box using philips screw driver and found the repair instructions. Followed the symtom diagnostic page and found that if the machine can be turned on but motor not working then check thermal fuse or motor. Next, I unplugged the appliance and remove the back panel to locate where the thermal fuse and other parts per the diagram in the repair instructions. Using a volt meter, I removed the electrical plugs to the thermal fuse and check resistance (a 1 on the volt meter indicated that the fuse is open (or burned)). Removed the thermal and checked for part number and looked up the model and parts number on the internet. Took a chance and ordered the part. When the order arrived 3 days later, I just simply replaced it and put everything back to where they were. Hooked up the power supply and turned on the dryer. It works again!! One thing I found was that I needed to clean the air pipe since it was totally clogged and probably caused the machine to overheat and burn out the fuse.

The dryer would heat up briefly and spin cold endlessly.

I removed the back cover on the dryer using a nutdriver, disconnected and removed the thermal (2 leads that are not-polarity sensitive), unmounted the cycling thermostat and transfered all 3 leads one by one as to not mix them up, installed, replaced cover and done. This did NOT solve the problem as no changes were noted. The only other possibility at this point is replacing the gas coils, or the entire gas assembly. The dryer still ignites but turns off about 20 minutes later and won't reignite unless the machine is left alone for about 30 minutes.
