Using the video on the site I was able to open the back on the dryer, replaced the thermal fuse and close it up in less than 15 minutes. Works great and saved me a ton of money.

I simply unplugged the dryer and removed the backing. Once off I located the part which was in plain sight, unhooked the wires and attached them to the new part. Put backing back on plugged it in and turned it on and it worked.

The dryer would not start when pushing the power button and the timer clicked rapidly. Another You Tube video lead us to the thermal fuse. First, we took the lower front panel off, it had two little groove places to pry open with a flat head screwdriver. Then we took off the venting piece. It was jammed full of lint which is why the thermal fuse blew. The thermal fuse itself was tricky to get at the nut in order to loosen it. We vacuumed out all the lint, cleaned the venting piece and lint filter. When the part came, again the nut was tricky, but just requires patience. Put everything back together and the dryer works great again! Really easy and I wonder how many dryers get replaced when this happens.

I removed the Back cover shield about 8 screws, found the thermal fuse, removed and replaced. (2 screws) Then I tested and had heat! I didn't need the cycling thermosat but all and all saved money by doing it myself.

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.

Repairing my dryer was one of the easiest things I have ever done and saved me quite a lot of money. The hardest part was getting the bolts out, mainly because I used pliers instead of the tool needed for the bolts in hard to reach places. I watched a video online on how to replace the parts, ordered the parts needed for my model, and repaired it myself in minutes. I replaced the heating element, both thermostats and the Thermal Fuse. I have very little time and money invested and my dryer works perfectly.

I woke up one morning to the dryer not working. Every company that I called wanted to charge a high price to come check the dryer. I decided to get on YouTube to troubleshoot the issue. There were a few videos that I saw, but the video for partselect was the best one I saw. I decided to explore the site to see if there was something I could do to fix it. I love the Instant appliance repair help, where you give the issue and it tells you what the problem most likely is. When I put in my model number, it said that it was most likely the thermal fuse or thermostat. I decided to get both since they were inexpensive. I received the part within a couple of days. I decided to come back to the site to make sure I was putting the part in correctly. If it wasn't for this site, I would have been paying hundreds of dollars instead of the $30 that I spent. Thanks so much PartSelect!!!!!!
