I searched the symptoms on the PartSelect Website, decided to go with the recommended solution. Watched the video for replacing the suggested parts. Since I had already replaced the Blower Wheel and Motor on the dryer in the past I was familiar with removing what was required. The actual parts replacement was simple, and the result was a dryer that was operating properly once again. Thanks.

Dryer would not heat

I followed the video link on the website step by step - that was much more helpful than reading the included instructions which seemed a little obscure for this layman. I thought for sure i would have to drop another $500 on a new dryer after buying my last one less than FOUR years ago! Ended up spending $40 including shipping which was super fast.I am now a dedicated fan of partselect and I know exactly where to go when my next appliance breaks..which they seem to do way too quickly now days.

pretty simple fix not much to it. If you are familiar with electrical work a dryer is just about as basic as it gets. Thermal fuse was bad, swapped it out and up and running again. It took me longer to get the dryer pulled out and cleaned up, than it did to replace the fuse. Wow was it diry back there!

The appliance can be turned on but motor won't start.

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.

Dryer timer was counting down but dryer itself would not start!

Heating element had 2 wire connections and 2 screws that held it in place and was easy to replace. Thermal fuse had 2 wire connections and 1 screw holding it in place. Over all, this repair took about 5 minutes to complete and the dryer works great again! Mike N.

Removed back of dryer and the fuse was right there in plain sight. Had to remove a screw and pull contact wires from fuse. Attached wires to new fuse, replaced screw that held fuse in place. Replaced dryer back. This web site is great! Diagnosed my problem, and then received the replacement part the next day! I will use the site again, if necessary, and recommend it to others.

Disconnect the power cord. Unhook the dryer vent hose. Remove the back. Find the Thermal Fuse. Use a ratchet and socket to remove socket head screw that holds the Thermal Fuse in place. Disconnect one of the two wires from the old Thermal Fuse and attach the wire to the new Thermal Fuse ensuring the wire is placed on the same end of the new Thermal Fuse as the old Thermal Fuse. Repeat procedure for the remaining wire and screw Thermal Fuse back in place. Replace the back, reattach the dryer vent hose and connect the power cord.

Saw no heat, web said probably the fuse. Replaced the fuse. Nope. Second guess was the thermostat at the exhaust. Replaced that. Nope. Finally got to actively troubleshooting and isolated one of the thermostats near the heating element. Replaced that and everything is fine. So now I have a good spare fuse and thermostat for the next repair. There was one tool I wished I had, a socket small enough to open the back. I had to use pliers and that was a pain. Other than that the repair was almost trivial, just unplug the bad one and plug in the good one.
