Neither of these parts solved my problem. I ordered the cycling thermostat and the regular thermostat (2 pieces) and installed them quickly last night. Problem solved! The video was awesome and made the repair straight-forward and easy. Thanks for your wonderful, information packed site. Saved me from buying a new dryer and spending unnecessary repairman fees.

dryer not heating

My dryer stopped heating up and therefore not drying clothes. I looked on you tube and watched different videos by Part Select and decided I would try replacing the heating element. I ordered the heating element online with Part Select after searching online for the best price. Part select website was easy to use. Received the part in a few days and was able to replace it with a few tools that I had in my home. I watched the you tube video again and referred to it while I worked. I completed the job in about 30 minutes. I am a 58 year old woman, and part select saved me a lot of worry, money and trouble. I'm thrilled and will turn to Part Select for any and all appliance repairs before I call a repairman into my home. Thank you Part Select!!!!!

Heat stopped completely & timer wouldn't work

I assumed a fuse was bad, although there were 3 possible fuses that might have caused the problem. I tested the Thermal Fuse #PS345113 and it was shot...the others were ok. I ordered a new fuse and everything works fine. The timer was not working on only the heated cycles but the new fuse fixed that as well. This took a bit longer than it should have because it included a lot of cleanup and moving an adjacent washing machine as well.

I went out on a limb and checked the heating element. I removed the back panel removed the heating element and ordered a new part from your website. When I received your product I installed it the same way I had removed the old one. Piece of cake. Knock on Wood my dryer runs fine. Hopefully that was the problem. If not I will be revisiting your website to purchase whatever else I need. Thanks......

It was simple. Originally, (just like a man) I took the door apart and removed from behind. THEN I WATCHED THE REPAIR VIDEO!!! Boy did I feel like a dummy. The repair was simple and easy. Putty knife popped the latch out and popped a new one in. Got a couple of extras for future issues. Both latches had failed previously, oddly, only 1 is actually used. Oh well, repair done, bride happy, all is well. Thanks Parts Select. Moral of the story, WATCH THE REPAIR VIDEO FIRST!!!!!!!!

Watching videos on the internet, I learned how to test the parts of the dryer. I learned that the thermal fuse was the problem. I ordered the part and it arrived in a few days. I changed out the part, put the dryer back together, and it worked! Saved me a great deal of money!

Shipping from this site was quick. Use a 1/4" nutdriver to remove the sheet metal screws securing the back panel of the dryer. Removal of the element is easy once you look closely at the fastening system used. Have a vacuum hose handy to remove all lint while you have the back off.

Dryer would not start

My dryer is a KitchenAid KEYE660W (electric). I tried to start the dryer but it would not run. I did notice that if I held the start button down, I could feel light vibrations through the button. Searched through Yahoo and this site and determined that this is often a bad Thermal Fuse. Used the diagrams on this site to locate where it should be, removed the back of the dryer with a screwdriver, removed the two wires clipped to the Thermal Fuse and unscrewed the Thermal Fuse. I had a friend test the fuse with a Multimeter. It was bad so I ordered another one on this site and it arrived in two days. Screwed the Thermal Fuse back in and clipped the two wires back on. Started the dryer and it worked!!! Replaced the back of the dryer. This repair took 15 minutes MAX and taught me a little bit about Mulitmeters.

I'm a 68 year old single lady who watched the video and just followed the instructions. Took the back off, tested all the parts involved with heating and the only part that didn't have any continuity was the top part of the thermal cutoff fuse. After receiving the part I removed the old one, put the new one in, put the back on and turned the dryer on. It heated right up. I also had a part that I didn't need and your return dept. made it very easy to return. I love this site. Save me a ton of money.
