Parts arrived in 2 days. I followed the "Simple as Pie" on-line instructional video, and my dryer was repaired in under 30 minutes. Couldn't have been easier. I've already recommended your site to a couple of friends. Needless to say "I'll never call an appliance repairman again."
Replaced heating element and thermal fuse also replace one overheat senser and dryer operated normally
Took the back panel off the dryer by removing eight (8) screws. Had parts I order (heating element and thermal fuse) replaced old with the new, still no heat. I ordered a thermal cut off kit. From the kit I replaced the high limited thermostat and tested. Heat begin too blow. I dryed cloth and everything work great.
My husband died in 2002 and I have tried to fix the things I could since then since a service call is so expensive. I entered the model # on KitchenAid web site and said it would not start. One of the suggestions was this Thermal Fuse. Site said that 52% of the time this fuse was the reason it would not start. Since the part was less than $20.00 i decided to try fixing it myself. The most time involved was getting the dryer away from the wall and the getting the back panel off. Following instructions on the site I was able to disconnect the bad fuse and connect the new one. I did say a little prayer that it would work and it did. Thank you for all your instructions and help along the way. Jeannie
Remove back panel locate fuse remove and replace
Very easy. Watched the video. Was a snap. Ordered two different parts just in case. First part I changed was the problem. Returned the extra part. Just got an email that my return was processed. I'll use them again! Repair cost me 1/2 of my time and a $ 12.00 part! Saved alot of money!
And prior to installing all the parts, Thermal Fuse, Cycling Thermostat, High Limit Thermostat, leveling feet, and I even replace the heating element prior to these parts.
removed back of dryer. unscrewed old fuse and removed spade terminals. checked it with ohm meter to verify it was open. shorted spade terminals with alligator clip and started dryer to check if burner flame ignited. ordered fuse and reversed the removal procedure. turned on dryer to confirm burner ignited. you can see the bruner if you remove the decorative name plate in the lower right front of the dryer.
We replaced the Fuse-Thrml (3392519) & The Cutoff-TML (279816). Still no heat. (The parts came in 2 days.)If we had been smart we would have checked the Heating Element first. It was fried.We ordered the Heating Element and received it the next day! It took about 5 min. to replace.I was very impressed with the website and delivery service of PartSelect.com. I called two different local stores in our area and they wanted twice the amount for the part and twice the amount for shipping it.The repair videos we watched were very helpful.Thank you PartSelect.com you saved us $100's.
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.
I searched the internet and found a paper on troubleshooting for my specific dryer. It suggested the problem maybe the fuse and how to test if the fuse was functioning or not by connecting the wires directly (bypassing the fuse). Sure enough it worked. Then I found this great site and bought the fuse. I received it in only a few days. Made the repair and everything is back to normal.
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.
Did a voltage test found the problem and orderedthe part
problem was the THERMAL fuse repair was very easy with repair helper on your web page. Thank You
