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.

The dryer sounded like a herd of buffalos running by.

I needed to replace our drum support rollers - one was completely worn out and wobbling (the buffalo herd noise) the other wasn't too bad, but for an older dryer(15+ years) I figured it was time to replace both wheels. I ordered the maintenance kit that also included the Idler Pulley and drum belt. I spent most of my time with the vacuum since there was a lot of dust accumulated inside the dryer. (I recoverd $1.83 in coins!) The instructions that came with the kit were very helpful for this repair. Plus, there were some online videos that heled as well. Once I had everything apart I noticed the plastic bearing ring on the drum's front was nearly worn out so I quickly ordered this from PartSelect and it arrived quicly in two days - this took only 10 minutes to replace.

I watched a video on youtube about how to install a dryer heaing element, took pictures of the wires on my cell phone, then just installed the new part. Plugged it back in and works like a charm!

Took two cycles to dry

Very easy to repair the heating element. I took the back off and half of it was burnt out (twice as long to dry). Replaced it and works like new. The instructional videos are great. I've replaced my water pump on my dishwasher also. Once again, instructional videos are great. I put trust in this website and their parts. I wouldn't have any worries about this site. Overall satisfaction A+.

Unscrewed the back panel. Unscrewed the heating element, disconnect the wires. Connect the wires to the new heating element and screw it back in place. Pull the thermal fuse off disconnect the wires from the old one and connect to the new one, then push back in place. Screw the back panel back in place. Put clothes in the dryer and start using. The dryer was back in use within 20 minutes after the parts arrived.

Belt was worn, rollers were sticking, idler worn out. Ordered a kit to care for these issues, as usual the reapirs took almost no time. Dryer became a bit quieter for a first load, second load the motor siezed. I priced rebuilding most of the machine and determined replacement was due.

Turned dryer around and removed electrical leads to heat element and tested element for continuity. No ohms resistance registered - removed cover and heat element and found broken element winding. Replaced with new winding from PartSelect. Savings of at least $150 - $200 vs professional repairman.

Broken dryer belt

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

I simply followed the instructions, replaced the belt, tub support wheels and tension pullie. Could not have been easier. I figured it was worth $47.00 to buy the kit and if it was another issue, at least I saved money vs. a service call. There are only so many things that can go wrong and the belt was the fix. 20 yr old dryer works just like new.

Using a Nutdriver, took all screws off from back panel. Located heat element, took 2 more screws off. Taking 1 wire off at a time, just to make sure they went back on right. Finished with the wires. Replaced element, then put back on. Plug dryer back in. That easy!!! Now I'm back in business. Very easy. Thank You.
