I got on line and searched for parts. I called Parts Select and a gentleman discussed the problem with me. He suggested what part(s) I possibly needed. He sent me the parts we discussed, (he said I would receive them withing 5 business days) I received them in 2. I watched the video which explained procedures for repair, I disassembled the dryer installed the thermostat, reassembled and with in 1/2 hour we were drying clothes. If I ever have any other problems I would call again for info. A great experience keep the good work

Unplug the dryer, remove hot air duct. Remove metal dryer back to access thermostat using a nut driver. Unscrew one screw holding on thermostat, detach 4 wires, and replace with new unit, attaching 4 wires to new unit. Then reverse process to button up the dryer. Great how-to video on your site helped a lot!

I ordered the thermostat switch thinking I'd isolated the problem. Discovering that wasn't the problem, I disconnected and inspected the heater coils and found the break in the coil. I then ordered the heater element (also from Partselect.com). It was simple, fast and works like a champ. I did discover my outside vent had a bird's nest in it. You really need to occasionally check your dryer vent (inside and out), for lint and apparently bird's nests.

Dryer just wasn't hot enough

Maytag makes it really easy to replace this part. Unlike the video which has the access panel in the rear of the dryer, Maytag accesses all the thermostats and wiring front the front so you don't even have to pull the unit away from the wall. Smart!! The video was great to show you what the part looks like and how its installed. Installed the part in less than 10 minutes. Now our clothes are drying as they should in half the time...best $20 I spent in a while.

Dryer stopped heating up.

I followed exactly the video. It really was that simple. My 5 year old even helped me unscrew the nuts. The Thermostat was on the lint shaft and unscrewed easily. Once out I removed the wires. The hardest part was removing the wires, They were really tight. I replaced the wires and screwed in the part. Before I replaced the back I cleaned out the lint tube and turned on the dryer. I saw the flame and the heater kicked right on. I replaced the back and was done. *****However the next time the dryer went the heat didn't remain on and turned off too soon. I did some more research and found you usually need to replace the thermal fuse at the same time on Whirlpool units. So I have ordered the part and will let you know if kept the heater from turning off too soon.

I replaced the Cycling thermostat. At first I thought I may have blamed the wrong part because the ohm meter read almost the same for the old and the new part. It took less than a day for the part to come probably because it came from Jacksonville. I haven't guessed how much I saved by not calling a appliance repair.

unplug,disconect vent, remove the back, use the ohm meter test the thermal cut-off , test the heating element, test heat limit switch. ( that now comes as part of the cut off kit ) I tested the cycling thermostat but did not know the values so i ordered it as well. Did not need it after compairing the old to the new. every thing should show compleat circut except the cycling thermo's two center contact that should be around 8000 ohm. very easy repair and recieved the parts in two days. Watch the video.

I watched the video. Thermostat wasn't the problem tho. It was the timer.

Dryer would heat up initially, but heat would cut off and clothes wouldn't dry.

I wasn't sure which part was the problem, but the PartSelect web site is very helpful suggesting likely parts for various problems. I ordered two parts from PartSelect - a Cycling Thermostat and a Thermal Cut-Off Kit. Each of the two parts had an installation video available on the PartSelect web site. I followed the video instructions for each part. Very easy to follow, no problems at all with installation, problem with dryer is now solved. I might add I was amazed how quickly the parts arrived after I ordered from PartSelect. Parts arrived 2nd day after placing order. I would not hesitate to use PartSelect for any future needs.

The repair is quite easy. However for me, the Cycling Thermostat did not fix the problem.
