Dryer tumbles but no heat

After reading most of the repair stories i decided that these two pieces were the main culprits of not having heat so i just decided to jump in and do it myself. This repair was fairly simple. I unplugged the dryer first. The dryer was a gas dryer but i did not turn off the gas. I then took the off the large metal cover on the back of the dryer as well as the air vent coming in. This required removing eight screws from the panel. Once i took off the plate, the fuse and thermostat were in plain view. I then removed the screws which secured these pieces in place and unattached the wires connected to them. There were about four wires for each piece and i just reattached the wires to the exact same spot on the new pieces. Just remember which wire goes with the right connection. They just slid onto the connector. The only difficulty was that a couple of the wires were a little snug on the connection so i had to use small pliers to pry them free. Once they were in place and i put the panel back on and plugged the dryer back on. I started it and within a few seconds the dryer kicked on and we had heat. These two procedures were quick and very easy for even the simplest handy person.

Watched the vidio. Removed back, swap out part shown and replaced. 10 minutes.......Ran test load, and then with wet clothes.......Worked like it should and a $20 part was way better than replacing a dryer..........

Timer will not advance - heat on about 10 minute then off - take a long time to dry load

Replaced thermal fuse, cyling thermal, then replaced thermostat 205F, ptoblems still remained.
Using ohmmeter measured and inspected all components . Found that the valve coils a little bit stick to the shaft. Orderd the two terminal gas valve coil and secondary coil valve - three terminal and replaced. Problem solved. :-)

Dryer would not start

removed back panel, removed thermal fuse and tested it to find it was not working, ordered replacement fuse and operating thermostat (which was a recommended replacement if replacing the fuse), replaced both parts and dryer worked again

The dryer wouldn't turn on.

It was fairly easy. I took the back cover off, located the parts, took them out and replaced them with new ones.

Dryer would not heat....at all.

Not noticing the break in the heat coil, I ordered two other minor parts, before ordering the heat coil. Less than 10 minutes to replace the old one, and now it works great! Thank you for your installation instructions and parts diagrams!

The drum would turn but no heat o rtimer

I followed the diagnosis sequence found on your website. The detailed diagrams of the unit helped. I tried to use the factory website but it assumed the reader had a certain amount of practical repair experience. The parts were delivered very quickly. I would have liked to have known if there was some way to test with a meter some of the original components I eventually had to purchase so I could narrow the problem down more closely.

Dryer was only intermittently heating, very poor circulation so clothes weren't drying

I tested the continuity of all of the fuses with an ohm meter. It was very easy to replace the thermal fuse and cycling thermostat (less than 15 minutes). A possible cause of the problem and symptoms was also a large buildup of lint in the lint chute/blower housing area which impeded airflow severely. It was easy to unscrew it and pull the lint out. It works like new now.

Dryer not drying/no heat

The diagnostic tool on the web site was great, offering the top reasons for my problem. The web site schematic diagram of my dryer was extremely helpful for the repair. Taking the back panel off and having the schematic for guidance made it possible to replace the parts in about 20 minutes. ALSO, I ordered the parts on-line on a Thursday, and the parts were on my doorstep the next day!! Awesome service which I have passed along the info to several friends.

No heat problem

First off I was really impressed about the videos provided. They helped make the repairs with more confidence. I changed just about every part related to an heating problem before I hit the defective part. Part I changed were Heating Element - 5600W 240V, Cycling Thermostat, Thermal Fuse, High Limit Thermostat. After replacing all these parts, still no heat. I then read that the Thermal cutoff kit has an additional sensor that you can't get separately but as a part of a kit which forces me to purchase an item twice. After another week spent waiting for the second order to arrive, the part came and I was able to replace and regained heat fairly quickly. Yeah! I do have an ohm meter but the dryer is at a location that is very difficult to reach when plugged in so changing the parts one by one was the safest way to go. It is fixed now and we are all happy. My only complaint is that the thermal kit was not mentioned as a possible issue or else I would have ordered it on the same order. In any case this earned me major brownie point to my significant other double Yeah!!!
