bought thermal fuse and thermostat as most likely. Took apart and checked with voltmeter and found the fuse open. Replaced it. Video instructions are helpful as is the part location in the drawings. Real problem was lint had built up in back vent area, blocking cooling/ burner intake air. Went through entire dryer and vacuumed it out

Used video of PartSelect guy on YouTube to diagnose bad thermal fuse with multimeter. Removed back panel of dryer with nutdriver, removed thermal fuse, found no conductance across terminals. Ordered new part. (It arrived very quickly!) Put in new thermal fuse, replaced back panel. Shortened flexible vent tube so there would be fewer bends. Dryer works now.

I unhooked the gas line, removed the vent hose and then removed the back of the dryer.I replaced the thermal fuse and the cycling thermostat in about 5 minutes. Most of my time was spent vacuuming dust in and around the dryer. The job was easy and my 14 year old dryer works like new.

Dryer would run, but there was no heat going to the unit

It could not have been easier, thanks to the video displayed when I ordered the part. It was as easy as removing the back of the dryer, taking out the old fuse and putting in a new old. I have NO repair experience, so little I had to borrow the nutdriver from the maintance man at work. I was more then a little leary to try this repair on my own, but decided it was worth all the money I would save not having to call a repair man for my dryer. Sure glad I did I will continue to attempt more repairs on my own.

Checked voltage coming into unit, good. Checked schematic and traced the voltage through the safeties and interlocks. Found the problem at the thermal link. Isolated unit from all voltage sources. Removed part and ohmed the resistance. Found it open. Ordered new link and it arrived before schedule. Replaced and connected wiring, returned power and tested. Worked great!

I removed the back of the dryer (after unplugging and shutting off the gas valve) I vacuumed any fuzz and debris. I also removed the dryer vent and cleaned that too. I unscrewed the thermal fuse and replaced it with the new one. I wiped everything down and replaced the back and ran the dryer and it worked! Thanks for your help and for saving me money! My husband was so glad we didn't have to call a service man we celebrated by going out to dinner!

I assumed a fuse was bad, although there were 3 possible fuses that might have caused the problem. I tested the Thermal Fuse #PS345113 and it was shot...the others were ok. I ordered a new fuse and everything works fine. The timer was not working on only the heated cycles but the new fuse fixed that as well. This took a bit longer than it should have because it included a lot of cleanup and moving an adjacent washing machine as well.

Process of elimination of parts ranked most likely to fix the heating issue. Found the problem to be the last item purchased the timer switch. I`m pleased to almost have a new dryer now. Repairs were simple to do, I recomemend gloves for the sharp edges. Saved a litte money in the process..

I thought that I was going to have to buy a new dryer or rather a used one to replace my dryer when it stopped heating. I knew I could not afford an appliance repair person to come out to the house, so I searched for my appliance on the internet for repair parts. Your website helped me to figure out the part that I needed to replace; i.e. the thermal fuse for $9. Since you advertised that you took return parts, I placed my order. Without any hassle short of the obvious moving the dryer away from the wall and removing the back panel I was able to do this in a short time. I was so excited to realize that my dryer was heating up. Thank you.

Dryer stopped working while drying a load of clothes.
