I read some of the repairs of other people and this best described my situation. I ordered the Radiant Flame Sensor and followed the step by step instructions in the video for the repair, which by the way was excellent. It couldn't have been easier. My most difficult part of the repair was moving my dryer out of the laundry closet.

Initially diagnosed the failure mode as a faulty thermal fuse and when the fuse was replaced was encouraged to find the heat working...then it shut off again. After a period of time that the dryer was off the heat would come back on. After reviewing the site extensively I found a description of the failure mode similar to mine and determined to replace the 2-terminal & 3-terminal coils (kit is less expensive than either by itself). My older Whirlpool dryer needeed to have the top panel removed in order to get to the front panel screws and once the front panel was removed the coil assembly was pretty easy to identify. The retention "plate" was attached via screws that were a little tough to get to but an offset phillips screw driver did the trick. The coils were "keyed" in such a way that they would only insert one way to be properly oriented. So I've earned my appliance repair merit badge.

Easy repair; great video from your site. I was able to do the complete repair by myself and I am a 40 year old female that is not mechanical in any way. Dyer works like the day I bought it. Thanks

Google is your friend! I have gotten in the habit of searching the Internet for repair advice. From car to mower to fridge and now dryer. What I've learned is dryers are very simple machines and with some mechanical aptitude most folks can repair there own.

The most difficult element of the repair was diagnosing the problem. I use a multi meter and started working through the wiring (referring to the wiring diagram) and found that I had no 'continuity' through the heat fuse and high limit thermostat. Once I had that figured out, everything else was easy. I found the parts, although I could not get a good part number match for the thermostat. The replacement numbers did not agree exactly with the numbers printed on the part. I went forwards anyhow and the actual installation was simple and well documented, Thank You PartSelect. While doing the repair, I took the time to clean the vents of the dryer. I removed the front panel and cleaned lots of lint. I also checked the ducting out the rear of the dryer, shorting the duct to hopefully improve air flow. Everything is working well.

Remove lower bottom cover (two screws on bottom) with screw driver. Remove old radiant flame sensor from left side of tube with ignior by using socket wretch. Remove wires with needle nose pliers. Put new part in: put wires back on, insert part's lower tab into the tube ( there is a small slot) use socket wrench to tighten screw at top. Put bottom front panel back on and screw back in.

You pop the top of the dryer. Remove to hex screws which allow you to remove the front panel. Next you pull the drum off, snack the belt around the drum, motor and tension pulley and reverse the steps. The hardest part is getting the drum back in place without knocking the belt off the motor.
