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.

Dryer not heating!!!!

I had no heat so I began to check all thermostats and wiring all checked ok except for cycling thermostat or atleast I thought but when checking across the smaller pins it is normal to have high resistance around 6900 ohms so I then installed new parts with no change. Intially I found that the breaker was blowing the top section of the breaker so i first replaced breaker and checked all power with new breaker and was getting normal power but then the next I was not only getting 42V for one pole of the 220V so just remember KISS - keep it simple stupid don't forget to check the common things first and several times I replaced the defevtive breaker that I purchased with new and all is well.

Clothes not getting dried

This was incredibly easy. After visiting this site and diagnosing the problem based on other's responses, I went ahead and ordered the recommended parts. When the parts arrived a few days later I went back on to the website to watch the repair videos. After viewing the videos one time, which took a total of about 10 minutes, I jumped up, grabbed my cordless driver, the appropriate socket and a pair of needle nosed pliers (as recommended in the video). With no exaggeration, whatsoever, I removed the back of the dryer, replaced the cycling thermostat and the thermal fuse and had the back in place and the dryer ready to run in under 5 minutes! My wife and I were both very surprised. The best news is that it fixed our problem. For weeks, the local repairman kept telling us that we just needed to clean out the dryer vent and make sure that there were no bends in the dryer flex hose. At first, we were very frustrated that he wouldn't check out the dryer in more detail, but now we are very grateful that he didn't because the cost of the parts was considerably less than the repair bill would have been. Thanks PartSelect! What a truly incredible parts AND service website!
I know I shouldn't wish this, but I almost can't wait until the next time something breaks down! PartSelect will be my first stop! (I'm knocking on every piece of wood I can find!)

Thanks Again!

Gas dryer working but not heating up

After searching google about my problem I was directed to Partselect.com, there I seen other people with the same problem I had and I read all there post's and I purchesed the parts they used. I believe it was just the one time thermal fuse but I ordered the other parts just to be safe. I placed my order in the afternoon and I received my parts the next afternoon! I was shocked. I installed the parts in less then 30min's using there diagram I printed. I tested the dryer and it worked again! I spent less then $50.00 for parts and shipping, I know I saved alot of money as having someone out to look at the dryer would've cost me at least $50.00

No heat, drum would turn, fan would run.

Ordered all of the thermostats and fuses. Unplugged appliance. Removed back panel. Replaced all items, still did not heat. I removed the 2 screws from the filter housing, and lifted the top. I disconnected the door sensor. I removed the 2 5/16" retaining bolts and removed the front cover, supported the drum and discovered a loose connection on the harness that connects to the drum motor. (Engineered not to heat up unless everything else is functional, including drum rotation.) I reestablished a good connection and buttonned her back up. Now i have spare thermostats.

No heat

It was very simple, I followed the instructions from your video. It also gave me the opportunity to vac out the unit which had not been done for some time. I plan on changing the igniter at a future date, making things new in that area. To be able to do it myself saved me a lot of money.
