No heat

It was a really easy repair. Simply removed the back cover and swapped out the parts. The only tricky part was getting the wires reconnected.

Dryer would not start

After diagnosing the fuse associated with this part as being the problem and ordering it from Sears I came across this web site and compared prices. I found the repair stories and discovered that Whirlpool which is the manufacturer for Kenmore, recommends replacing the thermostat along with the fuse as the thermostat is the likely cause for blowing the fuse. I ordered the thermostat from PartSelect and had it the next day while Sears was like 5 days. If I need repair parts in the future I'll order from PartSelect.

Dryer would run but wasn't getting any heat

After checking some of the tips on the part select sight I removed the back panel of the dryer and located the thermal fuse. I checked the fuse with a meter I borrowed from a friend and it was bad so I ordered the fuse and followed the advise from some of the other tips I read and also replaced the thermostat. Much easier than anticipated. Dryer is working just fine now. Parts were at my house in 2-3 days. Total cost about 31 dollars.

Dryer runs but will not heat up

This all happened Sunday afternoon. I looked online for "my dryer wont get hot".
They suggested the thermal fuse. I unplugged the dryer, pulled it away from the wall and looked on the back. There was a metal cover so I removed it. 1/4 nut driver. There was the fuse and the thermostat. I disconnected the 2 wires off the fuse and the 1 1/4 nut and we typed the number off the fuse in the search line and it took us to replacement dryer parts at parts select.com and it had a picture and I said order it. Your site suggested we replace the thermostat also so for a few extra dollars I got both parts - put them in and dryer is working fine now. I was pleased with the whole process.

Thermostat went bad and wiped out thermal fuse.

Tested thermal fuse with ohm meter and found no continuity, figured thermostat did not open and burnt fuse once it hit 195 degrees. Replaced the two of them and all is good know.

No heat / pilot was not firing

Termal Fuse and Cycling thermostat were on the outer shell of the dryer under the rear sheld. It was tougher removing the rear sheld than changing the parts..

Auto dry doesn't dry in one cycle

Turned off power to dryer. removed vent pipe, removed back cover(8 screws 1/4" hex). Took off wires from cycling thermostat( lower right side of dryer) removed one hex screw,pull out old thermostat and insert new thermostat, one hex screw,put wires back on thermostat. thought I may as well do a good cleaning at this time. put the back on with 8 hex screws, attached vent pipe, tightened clamp on pipe,pushed dryer back in place and turned on power.Now dries in less than a whole auto dry cycle.

No heat. Spinning and blowing fine.

Extremely easy! I used this website's part diagrams and videos to find out where the parts were in the dryer. I only needed a 1/4" socket on a screwdriver handle to remove the back of the dryer and the same socket for the screws holding most of the parts on (one needed a phillips screwdriver). I didnt have a ohm tester, so I ordered the heating element, cycling thermostat, thermal fuse and 250f Thermostat, knowing I could return the one(s) I didnt need. Replaced them all and guess what...it still didnt work! So I read some other people's comments and found out there was one more part I hadnt ordered that might be the problem...the THERMAL CUT OFF KIT. It has the 250F thermostat PLUS another (different) Thermal cut off fuse, that attaches several inches above the heating element. I ordered that part, got it the next day, and the Thermal cut off fuse that was in the kit (not available separately) ended up being the solution to my problem! The wire to it was actually fried, so the extra connectors in the kit were perfect, and I just cut and stripped the wire a little and put on the new connector, and the dryer works great.

Dryer would not start

Looked on web site and saw that problem was probably thermal fuse. Used volt meter and found fuse was bad. Ordered new fuse and thermal thermostat as recommended by whirlpool. Arrived in 2 days, took about 30 minutes to take off back of dryer and replace both parts. Dryer works fine now.

No heat,dryer would not cycle

It took longer to move the dryer & clean the lint from the dryer than to do the actual parts replacment.. Both parts were right there after removing back panel. Removed wires from parts after noting orientation,installed new parts. Cycled dryer and now it works just like brand new. I know I saved a bunch of cash either by having a repairman come in or having to replace the dryer. Great site for home owner.
