I removed the back of the dryer (after unplugging and shutting off the gas valve) I vacuumed any fuzz and debris. I also removed the dryer vent and cleaned that too. I unscrewed the thermal fuse and replaced it with the new one. I wiped everything down and replaced the back and ran the dryer and it worked! Thanks for your help and for saving me money! My husband was so glad we didn't have to call a service man we celebrated by going out to dinner!

Used video of PartSelect guy on YouTube to diagnose bad thermal fuse with multimeter. Removed back panel of dryer with nutdriver, removed thermal fuse, found no conductance across terminals. Ordered new part. (It arrived very quickly!) Put in new thermal fuse, replaced back panel. Shortened flexible vent tube so there would be fewer bends. Dryer works now.

I unhooked the gas line, removed the vent hose and then removed the back of the dryer.I replaced the thermal fuse and the cycling thermostat in about 5 minutes. Most of my time was spent vacuuming dust in and around the dryer. The job was easy and my 14 year old dryer works like new.

Dryer would run, but there was no heat going to the unit

It could not have been easier, thanks to the video displayed when I ordered the part. It was as easy as removing the back of the dryer, taking out the old fuse and putting in a new old. I have NO repair experience, so little I had to borrow the nutdriver from the maintance man at work. I was more then a little leary to try this repair on my own, but decided it was worth all the money I would save not having to call a repair man for my dryer. Sure glad I did I will continue to attempt more repairs on my own.

Checked voltage coming into unit, good. Checked schematic and traced the voltage through the safeties and interlocks. Found the problem at the thermal link. Isolated unit from all voltage sources. Removed part and ohmed the resistance. Found it open. Ordered new link and it arrived before schedule. Replaced and connected wiring, returned power and tested. Worked great! Very easy to find and repair!

Element was intact but no heat was present.

At first I thought it was the ignitor, so I replaced it. No luck there. Next I went to the Part Select web site...that showed that the Thermal Fuse was the cause of this symptom 45% of the time. I installed the fuse and now my dryer is working!

After researching and reading other reviews on Partselect.com, I watched the videos on doing the repairs. I purchased the parts from partselect. I happy to receive them before the expected delivery date. Before the part arrived, I followed the recommendation on the videos and vacuumed out all the accumulation of lint. When the parts arrived, I followed the instructions on the videos. I replaced the parts. I put the cover back on and plugged in my dryer. It works great! I estimate a savings of approximately $3-400.00. I also felt good that I was able to do it on my own. I am definitely impressed with Partselect! Thank you so much!

Removed the old fuse and replaced with the new fuse. Of course, I had to remove the back of the dryer but very easy and the cost was less than $20.00. Definitely worth it because we did not have the money for a new dryer. PartSelect.com is awesome!

Dryer not heating up

This has happened several times to my KitchenAid dryer. It cost more than $100 to bring someone in to repair. Fortunately, I saved my bills and saw the part "thermal fuse" listed. I researched that and found your website. I couldn't believe how easy it was to fix. The part cost less than $15 and the diagrams you provided were a big help. I was about to purchase a new dryer, easily $500. Your site saved me a bunch of money. How I fixed? Unscrewed the back panel of the dryer. Found a part that resembled the part you sent me. Slipped it out. Put the new one in...that is it. I also figured that one reason the part keeps burning out is because my duct has to bend to get to the outside vent. The obstruction probably causes the dryer to overheat more often than not. I pulled the dryer 6 inches more away from the wall to see if that helps. My fuse was going out about every 2 years.

Dryer would not turn on.

Was working fine one load and not the next. I remembered we had used this site for our dishwasher so gave it a try. Went with most common problem first. Ordered Sun rec'd Tues. Took longer to vacuum the back of dryer then it did to replace the fuse. Cost less than 30 bucks including shipping. Video was cool too.
