At first I thought it was the ignitor, so I replaced it. No luck there. Next I went to the Part Select web site...that showed that the Thermal Fuse was the cause of this symptom 45% of the time. I installed the fuse and now my dryer is working!

removed back cover and with unit unplugged, removed one wire from each device (thermal fuses and switches) and measured with multimeter. Found thermal fuse open. Removed and looked up and ordered part. Installed fuse and buttoned er up and all good. Hardest part was putting the exhaust hose back on the floor outlet!

Initial diagnoses suspected a faulty igniter. After deterininig that there was not power to the igniter I unplugged the dryer and systematically tested the continuity of each of the temperature limit swithches which all checked OK. The last item in the circuit is the thermal fuse which proved to be faulty. To confirm that this was the only problem I monentarily by passed the fuse to verify that the burner came on. To do all this I had to remove the fron panel and take out the drum. Actually the thermal fuse is located behind th back cover and is very easy to replace and probably should have been my fist go to suspect. Note the likely cause of the thermal fuse failure is a plugged up lint filter or exhaust duct which should be checked before installing a new fuse.

Dryer would not start one day

went on-line to research the problem. found the site and listed the issue. agreed with the probability and ordered the part. it came in a few days. After I ordered the part I watched the short instructional video that was available from the site. the repair took about 10 minutes to pull out the dryer, remove the back, take off the old part and put on the new part - put the back on plugged it in and push it back then turned it on. DONE

the only thing i do around the house is changing the light bulb, so when our dryer was not working and was about 5 years old, i was told it cost too much to repair and i am better of to get a new one so watched few clips on you tube and ordered the parts from partselect which came with instruction, i could not believe it spend about $100.00 and my dryer is working better than before. bottom line if i can do this anyone can.

I entered in the problem , part select told me what it might be. I ordered a heater coil and fuse. I watched the installation video , it looked easy enough. The parts came in 2 days I installed them in less that 15 minutes like in the video, and my dryer works like new. I was impressed with myself and part select. Thank you.

Clothes not drying.

I watched the How-To videos on your site before deciding whether to do the repair myself or not. I found the instructional video was so informative and easy to do, that I ordered the parts. When I received the parts, I, again, watched the videos to aid in the removal of the old and replace with the new. I followed the instructions as I repaired. It was an easy fix. The hardest part was moving the dryer away from the wall and reconnecting the exhaust hose. My wife is happy again and I have peace and quite. Thank you, PartSelect. You're now on my favorites list.

Well the video showed us taking off the back. Which wouldn't come off. Welded. Then we could not find the fuse in back of the unit or bottom. The second time we tried we found it in the front. We had to take off the front, bottom cover then we found the fuse. But, it didn't fix the problem. The unit is still on Casual load only. When we push the buttons the other lights light up but goes back to Casual. The unit is clear of lint and still drys but only at the Casual setting.
