I put my mind into the repair based on what I saw for a problem and what was given for advise. I was steered toward the thermal fuse, ordered and installed it. Not repaired, in checking the power backward to the panel I found that the dedicated panel had one side blown still allowing for the motor to run but not the element. hmmm

With a few hours of research online I found a site to help me diagnose what was going wrong with the dryer. After another hour of tracking down my multimeter (not thinking to just bypass the fuse) it tested bad. So after all the additional time to diagnose the problem, coupled with the two-days to get the part from Partselect, the repair took less than 15 minutes! Now I actually have a use for the multimeter I got from a computer class all those years ago...

the dryer would go through the cycle, the clothes were still damp

First I unpluged the dryer.I disconnected the vent remove 9 screws to take the back off. Remove the screws that held the thermostat & fuse, carefully remove the wires from the old ones and put them on the new ones. Places them back in places and put the screw back in. Replaced the back,put the vent back on, pluged it in and turn it on. Every thing worked properly. I watched the video before, I was well pleased with everything. Leo

I watched the step by step video to begin. the video is very helpful...it will tell you exactly what to do and how to do it step by step...i pulled off back panel...found thermal fuse, and replaced..reassembled and started it up...full heat...working like brand new. i probably saved at least 100.00 by not having a service man come to fix it. i also replaced parts on my whirlpool dishwasher last fall...100 % satisfied with the parts and the helpful hint,tips, and how to videos to fix appliances...i ll never call a service man again for appliance repair...very easy to replace parts..

Just turned it on one day and nothing happened. Checked the outlet to see if it was hot to rule out a tripped fuse.

Luckily I have a very mechanically minded son who immediately went to the your website, entered problem, found diagnosis. He removed the back of the dryer, found that th thermal fuse did indeed look bad. We sent for the new part, had it with in a few days, and it took him 5 minutes to have my dryer back in business!

Well first let me tell you I am 64 yrs old and female. Thank you so much for the video. That was the life saver. I followed instructions from the video and yes it was as easy as the gentleman said. The hardest part was moving the dryer out. I also ordered a thermostat and cut off thermostat. The dryer works just perfectly now. Thanks again for making it so simple for a lady like me.

This is my second repair using your parts. There was a problem with the electrical of the house that was also causing the dryer to fail. Other than that, I learned a great deal the first time around about my dryer the first time I order parts from you. It was easy to fix the dryer back then. Now that I have the electrical and the dryer fix so easy I have a wife that is drying clothes like a maniac. Thank you; Juan from Ocala, Florida.

After doing on line research at other sites, I bought an inexpensive multimeter, took off the back of the dryer, and started trying to figure out what part wasn't working. I might as well have tried to diagnose a jet engine problem, I didn't have a clue. Then I went to the Part Select site, and their stats showed that in 50% or so of the cases where a Roper doesn't start, you need a thermal fuse, and should also replace the cycling thermostat while you're at it. The "how-to" video showed me exactly what the parts look like, and where they are in the machine, and the cost of the parts plus delivery was less than $50!! It was worth taking the chance for $50. The parts came in two days, were installed in five minutes, the dryer works and I'm thrilled! Part Select is the absolute best. This is the first appliance repair I've ever done. I would never have done it without you. Thank you.

Clothes dryer would not turn on/would not run

Queried the Internet for my model number of dryer. Found Part Select web site. Went to the site and entered my model number again. Found a list of common problems and my particular dryer problem was listed. Only two possibilities - thermal fuse or timer. Studied the diagnostic criteria for thermal fuse and that seemed to fit my situation. Watched the video of how to replace the thermal fuse. After watching the video, I was convinced I could fix the dryer. Ordered the thermal fuse and it arrived in about 2 days. Followed the instructions previously viewed on the video and replaced the thermal fuse. Success!! Mission accomplished!! I felt great that I had done this by myself with help from Part Select. A service call from a repair establishment would have cost about $130.00. I fixed my dryer for about $9.00 plus shipping cost of about $7.00. And I didn't have to wait for two weeks for a repairman to show up and occupy my whole day. I forwarded the Part Select link to all of my friends and relatives and told them to use Part Select for their repair needs. Awesome web page and service! Use them!

Drum turning, but no heat

I first pulled the drum and turned on the dryer. The igniter never turned on. So I unplugged the dryer from the outlet and measured the resistance of the igniter, which was ok. I pulled the back panel and checked the thermal fuse, which was open. I also pulled the lint system plenum off of the unit, which was clogged with lint. This probably caused the thermal fuse to overheat. I cleaned out the lint collection system, replaced the thermal fuse and re-installed the drum. dryer is now working fine.
