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.

Dryer runs not much heat..

I am almost 60yr. old, I have never come across a better do it yourself site ever. The repairs went well and the video instruction were even better, where have you been my whole life? Instead of picking & plucking parts I went for all 3. I have gone back and forth to stores way to many times in the past for repairs. This was quick and easy and I had no doubts about the job. Prices were right shipping was fast and my wife & I are now happy dry people. Thanks much PARTSELECT

No heat

I first repaired the most likely suspects. The heating element and fuse. That did not do the trick. So then I replaced everything else that could effect the heat, that was over 1% of the likely problem. Wala...fixed. Directions were easy, work was easy and the result was a working dryer, good as new. I probably replaced a few items that were not bad but the entire cost was just over $100. A far cry from replacing the dryer at $599

The burner would fire off when you first started drying cycle but would not fire anymore after that

I replaced the cycling thermostat but this did not remedy the problem and after further evaluation I determined that the secondary solenoid coil (hold/assist)had an open coil wire on the gas valve. This is best purchased as a set, primary coil and secondary coil, as it is less expensive this way.

Dryer wouldn't heat up

The Dryer needed part #3387134 as it wasn't heating up. After installing the part, it worked for 1 load then the timer wouldn't work. The dryer isn't that old, I was hoping to save it.

Timer would not advance and dryer would tumble with no heat

i followed the video exactly. It was very clear and showed step by step instructions. After removing the back with 1/4 inch nutdriver, I removed the cycling thermostat by disconnecting the wires. Some were hard to get off so I had to use the needle nose pliers to pull from just below the clamp. Installing the new one was a snap. I undid the screw for the thermal fuse and repalced with the new one. However, once I installed the new parts my dryer still did not work. Found out that it was a bad breaker. Only one half of the breaker worked. Only 110 instead of 220 was working. Once the breaker was replaced, my dryer worked great. I am still proud that I could replace those parts by myself.

Takes extra long to dry. On auto setting continues to run.

Had already replaced the heating element, Hi/Lo thermostats, and now the Thermal Fuse and Cycling Thermostat, and still have the same symptons.

Clothes wouldn't dry completely

Used a 1/4 inch nut driver to remove back and remove element and cycling Thermo. Prior to ordering parts, I looked at the instruction videos provided with each part. ding the backand 3 holding the heat control and element. The belt is a little different, you have to open the machine from the front. There are 4 screws that need to be removed. The videos show exactly what to remove and how to check belt alignment. ---- With the videos, and list of parts that could fail, you can't miss. I have ordered all of the parts to fix the cold air cycling system in our Ref/Freezer. The cost of all the parts is so minimal compared to a service call, it doesn't make sense to eliminate a few parts that they list as possible problem parts when you are not 100% positive what is causing the failure.----- The dryer works exactly like it did when it was new.

Not drying clothes fast enough

First I removed the back medel cover from dryer by removing 9 screws-holding back cover on-easy. Then took multimeter put on ohms to test cycling thermostat which showed to be no good replaced it- and then sense I had ordered the thermal cut off kit which was not bad I replaced it anyway because I had the back off the dryer ,anyway removed wires being sure to remember where the wires went back- hardest thing to keep stright. But not to difficult. Put back cover back on done with that. Also put new multi rib belt on- easy- take off top and front of dryer. Runs&heats-like new!!

Dryer would not heat up.

First I unplugged my dryer. (220v) I then layed the dryer on its front. I then proceeded to remove the back cover after removing the duct clamp. The two screws holding the Cycling thermostat was removed after the two wire connections were slipped off. I placed the new cycling thermostat in place and put everything back in place and behold...Heat! This was a simple job for even the somewhat clumsy repair person. Good luck and Thank you Partselect! P.S. my order was placed on Friday and it was on my doorstep Saturday morning.

No heat

The repair itself was no problem - in changing out the parts but when we were done the dryer still didn't heat. Ended up calling in a repairman and he said we probably would never have found the problem as it was the flame sensor. He also replaced the coils. So now I have those new parts plus the thermal fuse and cycling thermostat that I ordered from your site. Should be good for another 18 years!! Thanks for making your sight so easy to maneuver in and to order the parts.
