I replaced the timer asembly, still did not start.I REPLACED THE HEATER SENSORS, TWO OF THEM,THAT DIDTHE JOB.I suggest to check both heater sensors first, one I missed at the beginning is on the right side of the heating coil, kind of hidden.I believe that one was the problem.I could have saved myself some money if I had found and checked that sensor first.

Not being able to afford a new dryer we bought this dryer second hand, picked it up from the seller, moved it up a flight of stairs, plugged it in to find that it worked but didn't heat. We were so devastated and we just left it sit for a week or two because there was no time to deal with fixing it. During that time I continued to use the laundromat down the street to dry our clothes. Finally I got online to google the part number to see what I could find out and that's when I ran across this site. It gave me HOPE and all that I needed to know to fix it instead of hauling it back down those stairs and out of my life!!! First I bought an OHM meter, completely stripped down my dryer checking every part until I found one that was questionable (timer resistor assembly) and one that was definitely dead (a thermostat)...no reading! It's no wonder it was burnt out, the front cover of the dryer was impacted with lint that had no where else to go! Now I understand exactly why my mother & dad always reminded us to "clean out the lint filter". They must have gone through this once before themselves. I ordered the replacement parts late one evening and they showed up at my door by 2:00 pm the next day...it was awesome!!!!!! A big learning experience for me and it saved me a fortune. THANK YOU PartSelect, I couldn't have done it without you!!!!
I checked this site and determined all of the possible causes. I watched the video when available. I checked prices on a replacement set ($2300.00) if I got what I really wanted but decided to tackle the repairs myself and save $2100.00. My only mistake was becoming distracted when testing the timer resistor before placing my order and not knowing where to connect the replacement. I ended up paying for assistance online ($24.00). It was much cheaper then replacing my washer and dryer or even calling a service person out for help. I applaud the services offered at this site and would recommend it to friends and family.
removed screws (3) holding console face...then lowered console. removed timer dial knob accessing machine nuts (2) holding timer in place. removed timer and transferred all spade connections, wire-for-wire. removed old timer resistor assembly and replaced with new. reassembled everything and tested with one very wet old sock. success.!!!!smiled and finished martini on the patio.
Very simple-remove 3 screws that hold the Control Panel on, remove the two connectors and replace with new part in reverse order. Unfortunately, this did not fix the problem. Will be ordering complete timer assembly.
1- cleared all the ducts. (They were clogged and this is what caused the fuse to open)2- Replaced the fuse from the kit3- The dryer stopped working again after 1/2 hour -the fuse blew-up again4- Altough the stat (the other part included in the kit) checked OK with the multimeter, it was actually defective and did not regulate the temp.5- changed both parts included in the kit, the dryer worked normally again.
After replacing these parts (VERY EASY!) my dryer is back online. As a mechanic/oilfield/trucker, I don't have time to mess around with this kind of stuff. My husband wanted to take the credit here.....lol. THANK YOU!
