Once I watched a YouTube video showing me how to do the job I ordered the part from you. Am so impressed with your fast shipping and best prices via the Internet. Thank you SO much! The water level switch was easy to install, it ws getting the cover on the washer back on that was hard for me since I am 68 yrs old and have a bad knee. Its why it took me two hours to do what most people could do in 20 minutes.

When the part came in. I unplugged the dryer. Pulled it away from the wall and took the back off. I pulled the wires off the old fuse and plugged them in the new fuse, then unscrewed the on nut that held the old fuse. Then slid the new one in and put the nut back on. Plugged the dryer in and it worked. So I unplugged the dryer and put the back on.

Removed the back panel, found the fuse and replaced it. Easiest thing I've ever done! I was expecting it not to be the problem, but I started with the "most common" issue via the website. Voila...it was the problem!

Installed new heating element. Simply watched the provided youtube video and replaced the heating element. Job took approximately 30 minutes from start to finish, very simple fix. Saved a couple hundred bucks by doing it myself and I have limited knowledge on dryers!

Unlike your video, with this model, the thermal fuse is located near the front of the dryer, which I didn't find out until the back was already off.

I wasn't sure which part was the problem, but the PartSelect web site is very helpful suggesting likely parts for various problems. I ordered two parts from PartSelect - a Cycling Thermostat and a Thermal Cut-Off Kit. Each of the two parts had an installation video available on the PartSelect web site. I followed the video instructions for each part. Very easy to follow, no problems at all with installation, problem with dryer is now solved. I might add I was amazed how quickly the parts arrived after I ordered from PartSelect. Parts arrived 2nd day after placing order. I would not hesitate to use PartSelect for any future needs.

I watched the part select you tube video that links specific loud dryer noises to specific broken or loose parts. It allowed me to identify the part I needed, which I ordered through their website. Two days later, I had the part and installed it, with help from another online video that showed me how to take the dryer apart to install the drum support roller. Thank you, the information provided made the repair quite easy. It works perfectly now!

My Whirlpool Electric dryer was taking 3 or 4 times longer to dry clothes.

I removed about 10 screws to take the back cover plate off the dryer. It was very obvious where the heating element was; and, it only took the removal of two screws to remove the heating element for inspection. It was obvious that the coiled wires of the heating element were blackened and no longer able to do the job of providing enough heat to dry our clothes. I went on line and ordered the repair part from partselect.com about 3;30 P.M. on a Friday afternoon. I was really amazed to receive the needed repair part the very next day at about 1:45 P.M.---only about 22 hours after placing the order. I had the new part in and the dryer working less than 24 hours after ordering the repair part. This is the fastest service I have ever received from anything I have ever ordered. I used the cheapest delivery method---not the expensive overnight delivery service and still got my part in less than 24 hours. Three cheers for great service from partselect.com!
