This was an easy fix. No need to purchase a new dryer! I had replaced this part previously about 4-5 years ago. We wash a lot of clothes with our family of 5. Watched the video. Wires were easy to replace on the machine because it was logical (i.e. bottom wires attach at the bottom and front wires attach to front, etc.). Dryer was up and running fast! Part was shipped Monday afternoon and I received it by Wednesday afternoon with the regular shipping method. Altogether AWESOME! Dryer working like a charm.

My husband took the back off the dryer as instructed in the video and replace the heating element. To our dismay something else is wrong with the dryer. The start button still doesn't work. I know the heating element was needed because it stop drying at the normal temperature.

I reviewed the instruction video. Excellant video. exactly like my dryer. Just followed the instructions. I did put a shoe under the drum for easier installation of belt onto idler pulley. I vacuumed and cleaned inside. Really not that dirty.Excellant web site and video instructions. Wish I had done the repair sooner. Also God Bless the residents of OK city, Moore, and ElReno.

Followed the instructions and really quite easy to fix. I didn't know why dryer wouldn't turn on but went with the odds that the thermal fuse was the problem-- and it was. Once I got the part it was back together and running in less than 30 minutes!

I removed the dryer to the outside to have more room to work. The dryer is easy to move about. I first watched the video and then I removed the part, recorded the serial number and ordered the part online. I received the part within two days. The work to replace the part, replace the back panel and place the dryer back inside and plug it in took about twenty minute.

Basically, I just did everything in the Parts Select video - it's what gave me the courage to attempt the repair myself and I am a 61 yr. old woman, who's not in great physical shape! The belt had broken. The two things that gave me the most trouble were disconnecting the tab on the door switch assembly and getting the screws to line up when replacing the front panel - one side lined up fine - the other needed a good push and an "alley-oop" to the side with my hip to fall into place. I did a few things that were not in the video which I think really helped me out. (1) I put an empty quart sized paint can under the dryer drum to hold it up - that really helped - I only had to support it slightly myself when threading the new belt. (2) I put a piece of duct tape across the bottom of the idler pulley to keep that from falling out of the holes when I was threading the new belt - that worked like a charm. Just be sure to remove the piece of duct tape and the paint can before you close up the dryer, if you decide to follow those two tips. (3) I also eventually put something under the front door panel to help raise it up and get it more in line with the two holes that it connects into, which made it easier for me to get it back into place. (4) Have some bandaids on hand - I sliced two fingers on different parts while installing the whole kit. (5) After you are done, either clean out the dryer vent hose or put a new one in - I was surprised by how much lint was clogged up in there. I never repaired any appliance before and if a 61 yr. old weakling like myself can do it, anyone can. Parts Select Rocks - the kit arrived a day and a half after it was shipped out and the video tells you everything you need to know to do this repair yourself and save big money. $49 versus probably $150 for a repairman and $500+ for a new dryer. Dryer is running like new! Would definitely do this again, if this or another dryer broke in the future. Thanks!

Ordered the parts, figuring it was either the heating element or fuse. Removed back of dryer, replace both parts, and now working great! Thank goodness I didn't have to purchase a brand new dryer! We almost did!!! We spent less than $90.00 and our dryer works like new! Thanks Parts Select!!

After watching your video, and reviewing the directions, I was able to change the rollers, the belt and tension bar with ease. The parts cost me slightly under 50.00 and now the noise is gone and my dryer works great. I am very pleased with PARTSELECT and would use them again. The parts were at my house within three days of placing the order !!!
