The dryer would not turn on and the autodry feature quit working.

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.

The problem was the dryer wouldn't heat up (gas). Would run but just not heat up.

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.

Dryer would not blow hot air

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

Dryer cut off and won't turn back on

I Followed the instruction video from this site. Very clear and detailed.l used the opportunity to clean out the back of the dryer with a dry paint brush and a vacume cleaner. I am a 60 year old woman with little experience and this was very easy to do. Thank you!

No heat in the dryer

after removing the back panel (5 screws) i replaced the heating element, (about 15 minutes, after vacuuming all of the lint and dog hair), replaced the panel, but still no heat. removed the back panel again, and replaced the thermal fuse. (2 screws, 5 min.) still no heat, so on to the thermostats. (there are 2, both in easy reach). i replaced the one in the heating element housing first, as this made sense. (it has a red stripe across it, so they can't be confused), replaced one connector, which the new part requires, buttoned it up, and presto!! the dryer works just as new! all told, i have less than 100.00 with all of the new parts. the longest part of the whole thing was cleaning all the lint and debris out first, which you absolutely must do

Dryer wouldnt turn on.

Followed the instructions in the video provided on the partselect website. The video's instructions were excellent. Simple removed the back comver of the dryer, located the parts and replaced them. It would have cost me at least $500 for a new dryer. At least $150 to have a repair man come. I did this repair myself for $45!! I highly recommend partselect.com.

I had no heat to dry clothes

After receiving the part I pulled the dryer out for easy access. Used only a nut driver to remove back cover and the part to replace was easily identified. Then it took a little while to remove all the dust and other particles that had built up over the years. The actual replacement of the part only took a couple of minutes. Reattached the back cover and put back in place. Turned on dryer and I now had heat. Easy fix.

Clothes were not drying, no heat in dryer

My wife and I thought our dryer was done and we were looking at a large replacement costs. We started googling and found this site and watched the video. We are were 99% sure it was the thermal fuse. We received within 2 days and thought we would be in there for over an hour. Turned it was less than 10 minutes, we watched the video clip on how to install on our laptop as we did it.

We will always be buying parts from this site and have told a ton of friends/family to check this site out.

It saved us so much money!!!!

No heat

An online help site lead me to believe the problem was the gas igniter. After ordering that and installing it I discovered that wasn't the problem. I took a look at the schematic which is in the electrical compartment and found that there is more than one thermal breaker. I found the other one, ordered and installed the part and had it running within 30 minutes. I had to access the back of the unit, remove the back cover with a socket wrench, unscrew the thermal breaker and re-install the new one with no special tools.
