Using a stiff putty knife I depressed the clips that hold the top down. I loosened the screws at the lower edge of the front panel and removed the two 5/16 head screws that hold the front on. I unplugged the door switch and lifted the front off the lower screws. I removed the drum and the broken belt. I replaced the rear rollers after applying some dry lube to the shafts and replaced the tension spring and rolled. I replaced the drum and belt and attached the belt to the small pulley on the motor. Then checked the rear gasket felt and reinstalled the front cover and the top.

Shut off the hot water supply (pretty sharp eh?). Disconnected the hose from the hw supply and the at the connection to the washing machine. These had not been touched in at least 15 years and were somewhat tough to loosen but finally came ..... accessibility was a problem for the connection to the water supply as it was in a recessed wall box. Fortunately, we had some washers for the hose connections so the install was a snap. Hardest part of the whole job was moving the washing machine out from between the drier and the wash tub .... tight fit. Thanks for the quick service and to FED EX for their delivery. The delivery fellow was a real gentleman.

no heat from

You guess that it is the heating element. They are like a light bulb, they do fail. I took the back off the dryer and removed the heater element. There is a temperature switch that needs to be removed. Examining the element, you could see a break in the element wire. That part was broken. The repair went smooth and the replacement heater assembly looked the same as the old one in design. I had to reset the dryer control and the dryer is good again.

After testing all the thermostats, I realized it was the heating element. I ordered the part right away, it came in 2 days later. It took me 15 minutes to open the dryer, put the new part in and then close the dryer. I must have saved $200. Thanks partselect for the videos and the fast shipping.

Removed back cover,top,lower and upper front,and drum. Cleaned dust and dirt drom all of the removed parts and then removed the "lint tube". Took the tube apart to clean out dirt and lint, cleaned the lint off of the motor and blower wheel, and then removed the support wheels. Installed the "lint tube" and then the new support wheels with the new locks and then installed the new belt onto the drum. I had to support the drum in order to correctly line up the belt, and then installed the upper front panel. plugged in the power cord and started the motor to be sure everything was OK before closing up the rest of the cabinet. All was OK and the belt tracted perfectly. Installed the lower front panel, top, and the rear panel. Installed the gas connection, checked for gas leaks and installed the dryer back in place. checked operation with a batch of wet clothes and the dryer worked "better than new"!!! The instruction sheet was "spot on" for clarity and accuracy.

When the part came in it was really simply. All I had to do was push the new catch into the hole and make sure it was in all the way and secure. A repair man would have charged at least $65 and it took me all of 1 minute to do.

I watched your YouTube video about trouble shooting dryers, and found that the problem was my thermal fuse was out. My exact model of dryer was used in the video. I ordered the part and replaced it following the instructions on YouTube. Since the video was so helpful, I decided to order my part from your company

Dryer was running but not producing heat

Most of the time was spent just getting behind the dryer and removing the back panel. It was also a great time to vacuum the area. If you're not working in tight quarters, this repair is really easy. The fuse is not hidden and requires no tools to install (only a wrench to remove the back panel). It started working right away & the part cost significantly less than a service call (about nine bucks + shipping).
