Flame Sensor didn't fix it but, it was easy to replace. Unplug electric. Lift up the top and remove wires from switch and light switch. Remove screws that hold on the front and remove front panel by lifting up and out. Sensor is on the left side of the burner, held on with just one screw. EASY!

I replaced the Control Thermistor (part # PS1149368) by removing the two screws on the bottom of the lower panel below the door. You will see the Control Thermistor just below and to the left of the discharge chute. Remove the two screws holding the Control Thermistor in place. Disconnect the two wire and reconnect to new Control Thermistor. Replace screws in reverse order of above.

Very easy fix. Removed remaining bottom mounting screw and removed old door handle. Positioned new handle on dryer making sure it fit properly in it's slots and installed screws into mounting brackets. Worked perfectly.

I shut the door too hard, and the old latch fell down into the inside of the dryer.

Everything I needed to know was already on your website. Prying off the top of the dryer (with a big screwdriver under the front of the top) was the hardest thing, since I was afraid I would break something. Only then can the front be removed (taking out just 2 phillips screws). The rest is easy.

no problem

Dryer Won't Heat Up

  • Customer: Michael from Los Angeles CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Never knew I was handy, but I did it! I was reluctant to spend a couple $100 on a repair visit, so found this site and bought the coils I needed for only $26+tax. It's pretty easy. I just lifted up the top of the dryer with a screw driver, should snap open. Then unscrewed the front panel with two screws from the inside. Then located the old coils on the bottom left. The bracket that holds them is a little difficult to remove as you need to have a small philips screw driver to get the back one. But once I got that off, just unplugged the old ones and put the bracket back, then the panels and it WORKED. The only problem I have is that I didn't take the door switch off properly and now the dryer doesn't stop spinning if I open the door and want to check the clothes. So I may have to get someone in eventually.

WHEN I DIRECT THE DRYER EXHAUST INTO THE ROOM DURING THE WINTER THERE IS AN EXTERNAL LINT FILTER IN THE DUCTING.fOR SOME REASON,ENOUGH LINT GOT BY THE DRYERS FILTER AND OVER A FEW CYCLES CLOGGED THE EXHAUST. I CORRECTLY ASSUMED THAT THE DRYER OVERHEATED AND SOME THERMAL LIMITER HAD OPENED UP. THE MANUAL HAD EXPLODED VIEWS AND I LOCATED THE LIMITER. GETTING TO IT WAS ANOTHER ISSUE. THE MANUAL GAVE NBO INSTRUCTIONS ON GETTING TO THE LIMITER, BUT I HAD INSTALLED A PROPANE CONVERSION KIT WHEN I FIRST GOT THE DRYER. iT WAS NECESSARY TO REMOVE THE TOP, CONTROL PANEL, AND FRONT PANEL/DOOR ASSEMBLY. DISCONNECTING THE GAS LINE,SOME CABLE CONNECTORS, AND A FEW SCREWS ALLOWED THE REMOVALE OF THE BURNER ASSEMBLY, THEN REMOVAL OF THE METAL TUBE THAT SURROUNDED THE BURNER ASSEMBLY AND HELD A NUMBER OF SENSORS, INCLUDING THE THERMAL LIMIT, WHICH, AS EXPECTED, SHOWED AN OPEN CIRCUIT. THE REPLACEMENT PART WAS ORDERED AND CHECKED OUT AS A CLOSED CIRCUIT, WHICH IT SHOULD. REASSEMBLY WAS THE REVERSE. A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO WORK IN THE CRAMPED LOWER CORNER OF THE DRYER. I'M 82 YEARS OLD NOW BUT MACHINES CANNOT BEAT ME!!
