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.

Replacing the cycling thermostat did not fix the problem on my whirlpool gas dryer. I then did more research on the internet and found that a likely cause was the 2 solenoids coils that control the gas valves. I replaced these and this and now the dryer works great. I had no idea how to open up the dryer to get at these, so it took a little while to figure out. 1) Lift up on front of dryer top to pop top off of 2 spring clips. 2) Reach down through top opening and find 2 bolts that attach dryer front to dryer body and remove with a nut driver. 3) Lift up on dryer front to release it from 2 hooks that it hangs on. 4) Remove 2 screws for bracket that holds coils in place. 5) Unplug coils and put in new ones. 6) Reinstall in reverse order. Problem solved. Great service from your site. Received parts 1 day after order using regular ground shipping.

Went on the website to diagnose the problem and ordered the two most likely components for the recommended "fix". Watched the video that was associated with the tracking information that was emailed to me when the parts shipped. Walks you right through the entire process. My daughters could do this. I call myself the "Maytag Repairman" these days and the wife was quite impressed!!! Of course I didn't clue her in to all the help I received from you guys...made her think I was a GENIUS!!! ;)

I SPENT LESS THAT $80 TO FIX THE ENTIRE PROBLEM. LISTED ARE THE PARTS I REPLACED: 1. THERMAL FUSE; 2. CYCLING THERMOSTAT, 3. AND A SET OF GAS COILS. THANK YOU PARTS SELECT ...

I woke up one morning to the dryer not working. Every company that I called wanted to charge a high price to come check the dryer. I decided to get on YouTube to troubleshoot the issue. There were a few videos that I saw, but the video for partselect was the best one I saw. I decided to explore the site to see if there was something I could do to fix it. I love the Instant appliance repair help, where you give the issue and it tells you what the problem most likely is. When I put in my model number, it said that it was most likely the thermal fuse or thermostat. I decided to get both since they were inexpensive. I received the part within a couple of days. I decided to come back to the site to make sure I was putting the part in correctly. If it wasn't for this site, I would have been paying hundreds of dollars instead of the $30 that I spent. Thanks so much PartSelect!!!!!!

Unpluged the dryer. Removed the vent hose with a reg. screwdriver. used a 1/4" nut driver removed the back of the dryer. Located the The Thermal fuse and replaced it. Found the Cycling Thermostat removed the 1/4" screw and changed the wires one at a time to get them in the right spot. Reinstalled the Cycling Thermostat. Pluged the dryer in and turned it on. It fired up in about 10 seconds. Turned it off and unpluged it. Reinstalled the back and Hose and away we went.
