tested continuity, determined thermal fuse was open. PartSelect sent a new fuse very quickly, and it was just a matter of reconnecting the wires and putting the back cover on the dryer. Started right up.

Replaced heating element, thermostats and fuse, cleaned dryer vent shafts and it is now working like when it was new.
Checked on your website for common problems w/this model dryer,highest probability was the thermal fuse being blown,so I ordered one & checked the vent for being plugged,no problem there,removed the back of the dryer replaced the fuse(very easy to do)put everything back together & started it up...all set now.Thanks for your help
Just removed the back panel with nut driver . Located the parts and replaced one at a t-ime. I replaced all the parts that I order , so I really can't say which part fixed it. But working good now.
this was a super easy job! i unplugged the dryer, removed the back panel, located the fuse on the bottom left side, replaced it, put the panel back on, plugged it back in and IT WORKED! this was the first appliance repair job for me and i am so glad i found this site. it probably saved me $100.00 or so doing it myself. thank you!!!
First I removed the back of the dryer. Then I used a multimeter to check the thermostsats and the one time use fuse. I found that the fuse had burnt out and one of the thermostats ha checked bad. I changed the fuse by removeing the one screw and lifting the fuse out. Replaced the fuse and reinstalled. I also made sure that the fan for the dyer and the lint trap area were clean. I also changed both of the thermostats while I had the dryer apart. Reassembled the dryer. Everything worked. NICE! No repair bills or buying a new unit.
removed cover then pulled wires with a plier, unscrewed the fuse and installed new fuse then put back cover plugged in power cord, fired dyer and run dryer for 2 minutes and felt warm air coming out of the exhaust.
So I opened the back up, and looked down the flame shoot and I could see that the igniter was never glowing red. (You can actually see the red glow of the igniter when its working right, then you here the solonoid click and flame. But again all this when its working correctly.) So anyway, no heat no glowing red. I took the voltmeter out, grounded 1 lead and just followed the voltage (using the schematic provided), through the switches, yada yada trying to trace how far it got. Voltage got to 1 side of thermal fuse, but not to other side. Bingo. Disconnected fuse and did continuity check - open. All of this took diagnosing took 1/2 hour to hour. Not really counting toward fix. Ordered the part at parts select. Put a jumper over the fuse so that clothes could still be dried (probably not recommended but it works). Part arrived in 2 days. Didn't even put the back panel on.The part is right on the back. 1 screw, 2 space terminals. Takes all of 3 minutes to replace. Then another 5 minutes to put the back panel on and vent hose back on. Most of that is because you are working in a cramped space. (I don't have the biggest laundry room.)Can't beat parts select! Parts select + a little know how, saved me about $400.
I guess you could say I went through the process of elemanation, first I replased the thermostat,removed 2 screws pulled off 3 wired with a pair of pliers put them on the new one, still no hot air so I replaced the fuse, took out 1 screw removed 2 wires and placed them on the new fuse, still no hot air, finally I replaced the thermal cut-off switch and WOW that was it hot air was blowing again, the process was very easy I ordered everything from parts slect and they were here the next day, only had to take the back off the dryer with a nut wrench, locate the thernastat, fuse and thermal cut-off which was just above the heating coil I removed 1 screw pulled off 2 wires and place them on the new one. very easy and the repair storys really helped locating the problem
I take me less then 15 min easy to change parts all you need is a screwdriver and replace the parts save me some good money thanks.??
it was very easy just had to take two nuts off and wires and reapply
I followed the video that you had for each part and they were both in the same area. Finished in 20 min. It did not fix the timer from moving again but I do have different heat levels.
My first deduction is of course the element since its past its engineered time failure . Check with a digital ohm instrument every thing beep, the element, the cut off thermostat, the fuse etc. The only thing I did not check is the electronic dials . Like I suspect that relying on the digital beeps for shorts sometimes when the metal plates of the thermostat stop expanding and contracting due to calcification or something..it will still give you a beep. But when I use an analog ohm meter the reading is very minimal....So what I did was to order the thermostats both the cutoff and the thermal I also the fuse. The element does not show any break cause you can physically see it. Then Eureka ..the parts replaced and my wife is all smiles......plus saved a lot of buko mony..Thanks for the help
There is a video that explains in full detail how to install. Unplug dryer. Remove screws to take back of dryer back off. Remove wires from part. Remove screw holding piece in place. Exchange old part for new part and screw back into place. Put wires back in part( they just snap into place) Put back to dryer back on with screws.
Watched video. Walked right through it.
