These parts didn't fix the problem. Went to you-tube watch a video on how to repair a gas dryer step by step and which parts to replace. Found out we had replace the wrong parts and ordered the coils and now it works!!! Next time I will watch a video, first then order, this will save us time and money!

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!

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!!

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 repair was easy--thanks to your excellent videos--also, delivery was prompt and correct--your service is excellent--but, looks like I'll need another part--maybe door latch??? I'll troubleshoot and definitely contact PartSelect--Thank you--will recommend you!

The control panel won't leave Casual load.

Well the video showed us taking off the back. Which wouldn't come off. Welded. Then we could not find the fuse in back of the unit or bottom. The second time we tried we found it in the front. We had to take off the front, bottom cover then we found the fuse. But, it didn't fix the problem. The unit is still on Casual load only. When we push the buttons the other lights light up but goes back to Casual. The unit is clear of lint and still drys but only at the Casual setting.

Dryer would not run or start at all. Seemed like it had no power but the light still worked and it wasn't the breaker.

Initial diagnoses suspected a faulty igniter. After deterininig that there was not power to the igniter I unplugged the dryer and systematically tested the continuity of each of the temperature limit swithches which all checked OK. The last item in the circuit is the thermal fuse which proved to be faulty. To confirm that this was the only problem I monentarily by passed the fuse to verify that the burner came on. To do all this I had to remove the fron panel and take out the drum. Actually the thermal fuse is located behind th back cover and is very easy to replace and probably should have been my fist go to suspect. Note the likely cause of the thermal fuse failure is a plugged up lint filter or exhaust duct which should be checked before installing a new fuse.

dryer runs, no heat.

Repairing my dryer was one of the easiest things I have ever done and saved me quite a lot of money. The hardest part was getting the bolts out, mainly because I used pliers instead of the tool needed for the bolts in hard to reach places. I watched a video online on how to replace the parts, ordered the parts needed for my model, and repaired it myself in minutes. I replaced the heating element, both thermostats and the Thermal Fuse. I have very little time and money invested and my dryer works perfectly.

Dryer would not start one day

went on-line to research the problem. found the site and listed the issue. agreed with the probability and ordered the part. it came in a few days. After I ordered the part I watched the short instructional video that was available from the site. the repair took about 10 minutes to pull out the dryer, remove the back, take off the old part and put on the new part - put the back on plugged it in and push it back then turned it on. DONE

the only thing i do around the house is changing the light bulb, so when our dryer was not working and was about 5 years old, i was told it cost too much to repair and i am better of to get a new one so watched few clips on you tube and ordered the parts from partselect which came with instruction, i could not believe it spend about $100.00 and my dryer is working better than before. bottom line if i can do this anyone can.
