I diagnosed the problem using the web page. It said that 60% of the people with my problem bought the Thermal Fuse. I unplugged the dryer AND cut the power at the fuse box. I used a screwdriver to remove the vent hose, a nutdriver to remove the back of the machine. The thermal fuse was right there. Removed the old one with a screwdriver, unplugged the wires from the old one and snapped on new one, and screwed it back in. Re-installed the back of the dryer and the vent hose and Whoila! It works like a champ.

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 repaired this dryer after I did a little research online to learn about the thermal fuse. I took the back off the dryer and used the Fluke meter to test the thermal fuse for continuity. There wasn't any. I left the dryer disassembled and ordered the part. It arrived two days later. I installed it and reassembled the dryer in just a few minutes. It was a pretty simple repair.

Dryer turned on and drum rolled. but no heat or igniter glow.

My wife hates me because I keep repairing our appliances. The dryer and washing machine are now 21 years old and look like new. To replace these two parts, first check if the igniter is glowing at all when you turn the dryer on. To do this remove the access panel in front on the bottom. To remove it, slide a flat screw driver across the slot onto of the panel to locate the release clips. Depress the release clamps by sliding the screw driver on top and pull the panel forward. Now start the machine and see if the igniter glows. If not proceed to replace the Thermal Fuse and both thermostats. To do so, open the back panel of the unit. First disconnect power and vent. Unscrew and replace components which will be easily seen on the bulk head. Use a pliers to remove the contacts. Your machine will now last another twenty years and your wife will hate you as does mine:)

I ordered the Thermal Fuse, as it appeared to be the problem. A friend suggested that as long as the price was fairly reasonable, I should go ahead and get two of them and keep one for later. I ordered/paid for two of them. I put the Thermal Fuse in, and when I attempted to turn the dryer on, it ran for about 5 minutes, at a very hot heat, dried the towels, and then would not come on again. I thought it had kicked the circuit breaker, but after checking, found it hadn't. I watched the youtubes.com again and found that there were three other parts that it could possibly be. I ordered them, and replaced all of them. One of them had 4 prongs but two on the new one. I left two wires off, and sure enough, it would not run. I borrowed an ohm meter, and found out my old part was still good, but that in the process it had blown the Thermal Fuse, of which I just happened to have an extra, and after installing it, it is now in perfect running order. The total repair was about $80-100, rather than a $75.00 bill for service and heaven only knows for the parts at the repairman's price! Thanks youtube, Parts Select and my friend for his advice!

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
