Dryer stopper heating

  • Customer: Bill from Arlington, TX

I replaced the element using the video as a guide. Very easy install; however, it did not fix the problem. Turned out to be one of the cycling thermostats. I used the video for that also. A little more difficult because you have to strip and reattach a few wires. A good wire stripper/crimper tool will make this job easy. I would suggest buying the element, both thermostats and the fuse at once. This increases your chances of fixing the issue the first time. For around $100 you will have a worry free dryer for years to come. Beats a new dryer.

I did some research and found your website. I thought the thermostat was the problem and I ordered the thermal cut-off kit. I should have tested the existing thermostat first using a continuity tester but I didn't have that device. I installed the kit but still no heat. I kept on watching other videos about the no heat problem, then I was convinced the problem could be the source of the heat, the heating element. I ordered not only the heating element but the thermal fuse as well in case I need it, it is cheap anyway. When I opened the back panel and removed the old heating element, I found the coil burned out, broken and a cracked metal panel. I replaced it and now it's working like a brand new dryer. I didn't have to change the thermal fuse. I saved at least less than $500 from not buying a brand new dryer. Thanks to your helpful website. Impressive delivery, so quick.

Watched the repair of a similar repair on a video and took off the heating tube which was found to be defective because it burned out the heating coils. Replaced the heating tube and it's working fine.

Ordered 8am Monday, Part arrived Fed-Ex on Tuesday. Got home from work, opened the box. Remembered from the site helpful tips, saved screws (10) in a dish, marked electrical wires (L) (R) (B) pried the connection off old part, reinstalled and replaced the back cover. Hardest part was getting out from behind the dryer. Tight space. Amazingly easy I saved $200.00. I'll use this site & service again.

I watched the video on PartSelect for this model. It was very easy to follow. The thermostat was mounted on a terminal lug which needed a little prying but not bad. Saved a least $140.

Before calling a repairman, I researched the problem at partselect.com. I am so glad that I did. It saved be a lot of money. I was able to narrow down the cause of "No Heat", and ordered a new Heating Element for the dryer thru partselect.com. The part arrived very quickly, and I was able to install the new part by first watching the installation videos at partselect.com. This could not have gone smoother, and I could not be happier. And, "no", I do not work for partselect.com. :)

I followed the instructions almost exactly as the video and it was very simple. A few of the parts were a little difficult to get off but with a little tugging they popped off. After the initial installation I ran the dryer and the items didn't dry, so I ran it again and got the same result. Fortunately, not know I had already attempted to dry twice, my wife put a load in and it worked perfectly and has been since. Not sure the reason but it took 3 attempts before the heating element worked and I have a 12.5 year old drying that works good as new!

I followed the instructions according to your repair video and they worked perfectly. Thank you for the video, very clear and helpful giving me the self confidence to do the job myself! Part delivery was three days and the money I saved by not calling a repair man is greatly appreciated. I am already recommending part select to others at work!

Pulled the back panel. Removed the connectors from the thermal fuse and checked the to see if it was good with ohm meter. Then checked the thermostat next the fuse on the left side. Then did the same thing with the thermostats at the top and bottom of the heater box on the right side if you are looking from the back of the dryer. Then check the heater element for any opens, this is where the problem was. ordered the part from this site and it took to remove the one screw at the top of the heater box and the whole heater box comes out. then removed the 2 screws on the sides and pulled the old one out and put the new one in the same way. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to do and the dryer was back up and running. I also checked the you tube video series.
