Would not turn on..even though timer and power on button were working

The video help to give confidence to change out the components since they were so inexpensive and the alternative was to go out and buy a new dryer.. It was easy to remove the back panel off dryer (after unplugging from the wall of course). The two components were unscrewed, cables unattached using pliers and replaced. The faulty element was definitely an open thermal fuse. For some reason there was a 5 Ohm resistance when the cables were connected.. Which confused me at first as I thought the fuse was not blown. I guess there was some conductance across the cabinet body. Anyway after replacing the fuse and thermostat the dryer was back to fully operational. I think it now actually drys better than before but that may just be wishful thinking.

The video for installing the cut-off kit was wrong for this model! The lower part of the cut-off kit that I removed looked exactly like the one in the video. However for my dryer, there was no orange wire. There was no need to splice the original wiring. The jumper was all that was needed. I did not realize this until I cut off the original female connectors. Once I cut them off and realized my mistake, I had to go hunting for new female ends to connect. Lowes and Home Depot don't carry ones big enough. In short, the video turned an easy repair into a big pain in the butt. The heating element and thermal fuse installed easily.

I simply pulled the dryer away from wall. Cleaned vents. Pulled plug out from outlet. Unscrewed the back panel and removed the cycling thermostat and fuse as per your instructions. Since I had the back panel removed I cleaned the inside of lint as well. Put the back panel back started the dryer and everything was perfect. Saved myself at least 150.00.

I ordered the part I suspected....which was indicated by approximately 44% of the users having success replacing the thermal fuse. After watching the video on how to perform the repair, it was a snap! Removed the 9 screws, removed the vent hose, popped out the fuse, and replaced it. After checking to see if that was the problem....which it was, I reassembled the dryer. It only took more time because I chose to vacuum any exposed areas. THANK YOU!

I actually found the repair to be quite easy. This dryer along with the washer are basic models and over 15 years old. I have replaced just about every part on these machines. The more "basic" the model; without all the bells and whistles and electronics, the easier they are to repair yourself. I used a YouTube video for this particular model for the repair. All the items you sent arrived in superb condition and delivered in just a couple of days! Absolutely fantastic and professional service bar-none! I would highly recommend your site to anyone looking for 1st rate products and unbelievable speedy service. I will be using you again for any and all repairs for my appliances. Thank you very much for the outstanding customer service. Kindest Regards, Bruce

1. Shut off power to dryer 2. Remove back panel covers with 1/4" nut driver 3. Use ohm meter to determine continuity at various thermal couples (3) and the one thermal fuse on the blower panel. . (This was the "bad "one in my case) 4. Remove two wires and remove the one screw that holds fuse. Did not have the model# for dryer, so I took the part# from the blown fuse and found it at partselect. Com. . They even showed an exact picture of the part I needed. . Ordered on tuesday/arrived by fed x on saturday. . . Reverse procedure to install. .

Pull off the front panel of the dryer, and replaced the thermal fuse. Very easy. Plus, vacuumed out the whole inside of the dryer, the rear and the tube running from the dryer to the outside. Will be doing this at least every 3 months to be safe. You would be surprised at how much lint builds up inside the machine. Eve though we clean the filter trap after every use of a load of clothes.

Clothes Dryer taking multiple cycles to dry

First I watched Partselect's wonderful videos on what could cause the dryer from having to use multiple cycles to dry and the parts involved. I then took the back of the dryer off and tested all three parts with a multi-meter to determine which part had no resistance. The thermal fuse did not register any thing, so I ordered the part and a few days later put it in. The dryer dries in just one cycle saving on the cost of repair and electric bill. Partselect.com is my first go to sight for any repair. They make it so simple and comprehensive that any one can do the repair. I then used duct tape to make a secure connection to the duct pipe in order for it to properly vent to the outside.

Previously I had repaired two washing machines and now a dryer, which is why my mom nick named me Josephine. So ladies you can make the repairs as well.
