The Thermal Fuse blew. Ordered the part, came the next day, total repair done. Part & next day shipping, less than $23.00

Pull off the front panel of the dryer, and replaced the thermal fuse. Very easy. Plus, vacuumed out the whole inside of the dryer, the rear and the tube running from the dryer to the outside. Will be doing this at least every 3 months to be safe. You would be surprised at how much lint builds up inside the machine. Eve though we clean the filter trap after every use of a load of clothes.

Clothes Dryer taking multiple cycles to dry

  • Customer: Colleen from Athens, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
First I watched Partselect's wonderful videos on what could cause the dryer from having to use multiple cycles to dry and the parts involved. I then took the back of the dryer off and tested all three parts with a multi-meter to determine which part had no resistance. The thermal fuse did not register any thing, so I ordered the part and a few days later put it in. The dryer dries in just one cycle saving on the cost of repair and electric bill. Partselect.com is my first go to sight for any repair. They make it so simple and comprehensive that any one can do the repair. I then used duct tape to make a secure connection to the duct pipe in order for it to properly vent to the outside.

Previously I had repaired two washing machines and now a dryer, which is why my mom nick named me Josephine. So ladies you can make the repairs as well.

Preface this by saying I'm not a good handyman. I love working with my hands, but I cannot cut straight, make angles, plumb, or do anything electric. I knew I had a gas dryer but I had to learn that it uses a burner not a coil. That said, armed with my trusty iPad, I located Part Select, watched a video or two, entered my problems into the correct fields, and made an educated guess based off of the results. Since I already had the front cover and the motor cover off the dryer and the 2 sensors were right there, I ordered both-why take the chance. I ordered Sunday evening and the parts arrived Tuesday around noon. By 1pm I was drying clothes. Feeling pretty cocky now, I'm going to try to hang gutters this weekend.

Taking Longer For Clothes To Dry

  • Customer: Robert C from West Columbia, TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Watched steve on the video on changing the thermistor a couple times, it appeared to be straight forward replacement. Unplugged the dryer. . . Went through the front, my lent filter slides in and out from the lid so I had too remove two extra screws to detach it. After opening up the front it became very apparent my thermistor was not located in the same location as the one in the video. Dryer needed a cleaning (lint/dust) so I released the idler pully tension on the drum belt and went ahead and removed the drum/belt and shop vac/ blew with compressed air and shop vac once again. Gave my dryer a much needed cleaning since I had it apart. Put everything back together in about 20 mins. Pulled the dryer away from the wall and removed rear cover and presto there it was right next to the dryer air outlet. Replaced thermistor and replaced back cover, inspected out flex hose on dryer outlet, I clean it out (flex) yearly to prevent problems. Reattached flex on both ends, re-positioned dryer, plugged back in, and works great! Definitely fixed my problem. . . Replacing the drum by myself was a bit difficult. Still do able (there's a video on that also. . )

Control board defective

Very easy, viewed the you-tube video and followed the instructions. Simply, unplug dryer, remove back panel (4 nuts), open back, remove one screw that holds board in place and slide left to remove. Take a picture of wire configuration to ensure you reconnect the same way. For the most part it is self explanatory for the exception of the hot wire and two ground wires and proceed to disconnect wires, install new board by reconnecting wires and proceed to replace back cover. Reconnect power source and get to drying.

Door latch had failed; door would not close.

  • Difficulty: Really Easy

The door catch assembly is designed to slide into a hole stamped in the sheet metal. Normally, the repair only requires the use of pliers to grasp the top and bottom of the catch, compressing them enough to slide the catch out of the door. The new catch can be inserted through the hole and snapped into place the same way. In my case, the catch was a very tight fit, so I had to remove the door from the dryer, remove the screws that hold the outside and inside door sections together, replace the damaged door catch, reassemble and re-mount the door. Having to do that increased the completion time for a simple repair that would normally take less than five minutes.

Door catch does not come as easy as the video shows.

The catch did not just slip out. I had to take door apart and then still had a tough time getting the latch out. I had to pry it out with a screw driver. It did not just slip out the front like some people said.

As in the video: inserted putty knife behind catch lip above and below the catch. Video shows only doing on top or bottom, but need to do both and then pry out while pushing towards the center of the catch up and down. Not as easy coming out as in the video. Putting new catch in was easy...just slide into hole.

Door catch on dryer broke and would not capture the door.

I watched the video, took a knife and released the outer catches on the stainless steel spring clip, but part of the broken catch was inside the clip crossways and would not let the clip come out. I had a set of hook shaped picks (from Harbor Freight) and I tried to pull out the broken piece, but it fell inside the door. I was then able to pull out the spring steel clip, and push the new part in and it caught. I left the broken parts inside the door, thinking it would not hurt anything. Door latches OK now.
