Checked circuit breaker, cord, outlet. Went through troubleshooting guide on website and isolated the problem and ordered the thermal fuse and cycling thermostat after watching the video. Parts arrived the next day, much quicker than promised. Unscrewed the back cover and removed the thermal fuse which was exactly as depicted in the video. The dryer worked! I replaced the cycling thermostat next and checked that the dryer still worked. Reattached the back cover and now no more hanging the wash on the clothesline. I was really impressed with the accuracy of the video. The troubleshooting guide and testimonies of others with the same problem gave me the confidence that my diagnosis was correct. Easiest and most efficient repair process ever. Thank you so much PartSelect for an outstanding service! AAAAAA+++++ company!

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.

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.

Watched the video but realized my dryer was a little different removed bottom front panel to expose area to remove thermal fuse. Checked for continuity, found that there wasn't any. Ordered part and replaced it, fired right up!!

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.

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.

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!

Very simple. Removed rear panel, fuse and thermostat on exhaust vent was immediatly recognizable. Made sure entire vent was clean. However, the problem was NOT resolved. Now looking for an alternate answer...
