This was so easy.On Parts Select I looked through the options of what might be wrong when my dryer stopped working. After ruling out any power problems and checking the door switch I moved onto the next possibility which was the thermal fuse. Although I did not have the equipment to check the old fuse to see if it was still functional, I took a chance and ordered the new thermal fuse for my model # dryer. At a total of around $20 (about 2/3 of that was expedited shipping at my choice) it was worth it to me to give this a try before calling a repairman for what might be a bigger and more expensive problem. The fuse came within 48 hours and I logged back onto Part Select to watch the very simple video of how to install. I removed the six screws from the back panel of my drier,located the old theremal fuse, removed the one screw securing it, disconnected the 2 wires from the old thermal fuse (which looked a little browned around the edges)and reattached the 2 wires to the new thermal fuse in the same manner. I then reattached the new fuse with the one screw and put the back panel back on my dryer. Set the time, and pressed the start button and it fired right up. So happy I didn't have to pay $200 plus for this simple repair. Trust me when I say you can do this yourself. Very straight forward and simple installation. Good Luck!

Dryer stopped drying

We had initially ordered the wrong parts, but I called them to send one of the parts back. While I was on the phone with the rep, we ordered what I thought would be the right part. By this time I had been without a dryer for 5 days. It was about 4 in the afternoon. I asked the rep if we could possibly get the part the next day, and she politely stated that she didn't think so. But, the very next afternoon, the part was sitting at my door! I replaced the part easily while watching the you-tube on their website, and had the dryer running like new again in about 10 minutes! And I am a woman! I saved $300 instead of buying a new dryer. We have ordered from Partsselect before, and will continue in the future. I would recommend them to anyone who has any kind of appliance repair issue.

Used wire schematic and locate thermal fuse. Disconnect power and remove rear panel. About 8 screws. Remove the two wires from fuse and check fuse continunity. Fuse was open and prevented power from going to gas solenoids. Replace fuse and clean exhaust ducts. Dirty ducts might have caused fused to over heat.

Dryer would not heat up.

I went on the PartSelect site and watched some videos to determine what could be wrong. I almost guessed and bought the wrong part as there were a few. I ended up spending $17 for a multi tester. Once I determined that the thermal fuse was bad. I just followed the instructions from the video and replaced it. Took me more time figuring out what part was bad and buying the tester than actually replacing the part. Very glad I bought the multi tester watched the videos. After that it was easy.

No Heat

From the list of parts that most commonly fail causing the no heat condition I selected the most common part, the heating element. I replaced it according to the instructions on the associated video. It was very simple. Reinstalling a good vent for the dryer took longer. But the new heating element didnt fix the problem. So I replaced the termal fuse which was also very easy but also didn't fix the problem. At that point I decided to replace the dryer. In the process of recovering parts from the old dryer I noted a thin film of lint stuck to the smaller of the two thermostats. So I'd recommend first inspecting and cleaning all of the parts in the parts list before ordering new parts. But then begin with the most common failing part and working down the list. If you have some test equipment like a voltmeter, ohmmeter, or multimeter that would be a plus in isolating faults. Still, I'm a fan of PartSelect and would come here for other parts.

Heating element had 2 wire connections and 2 screws that held it in place and was easy to replace. Thermal fuse had 2 wire connections and 1 screw holding it in place. Over all, this repair took about 5 minutes to complete and the dryer works great again! Mike N.

The dryer would heat up briefly and spin cold endlessly.

I removed the back cover on the dryer using a nutdriver, disconnected and removed the thermal (2 leads that are not-polarity sensitive), unmounted the cycling thermostat and transfered all 3 leads one by one as to not mix them up, installed, replaced cover and done. This did NOT solve the problem as no changes were noted. The only other possibility at this point is replacing the gas coils, or the entire gas assembly. The dryer still ignites but turns off about 20 minutes later and won't reignite unless the machine is left alone for about 30 minutes.

Would not run

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.

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!
