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
I pulled the back off, replaced the parts, put back together, plugged it in and WALLA! it worked and has for a week. Thank you partSelect.com.
First removed 8 screws in the back of the dryer to take off the lead 1/4head then removed two blue wires then one screw and you have the thermal fuse . Note: be sure that it is disconected. Before service
Put both parts in and it started (not sure if we needed both, but my husband put both in)
parts went in easy, direct bolt in. should run another 20 yrs. easily.thanks for the fast shipping on the parts.
I took the back off and found the fuse, It was very easy to do .Got on the internet and ordered a new one . It came in 5 days . Thank you. H wandersee
This was incredibly easy. After visiting this site and diagnosing the problem based on other's responses, I went ahead and ordered the recommended parts. When the parts arrived a few days later I went back on to the website to watch the repair videos. After viewing the videos one time, which took a total of about 10 minutes, I jumped up, grabbed my cordless driver, the appropriate socket and a pair of needle nosed pliers (as recommended in the video). With no exaggeration, whatsoever, I removed the back of the dryer, replaced the cycling thermostat and the thermal fuse and had the back in place and the dryer ready to run in under 5 minutes! My wife and I were both very surprised. The best news is that it fixed our problem. For weeks, the local repairman kept telling us that we just needed to clean out the dryer vent and make sure that there were no bends in the dryer flex hose. At first, we were very frustrated that he wouldn't check out the dryer in more detail, but now we are very grateful that he didn't because the cost of the parts was considerably less than the repair bill would have been. Thanks PartSelect! What a truly incredible parts AND service website! I know I shouldn't wish this, but I almost can't wait until the next time something breaks down! PartSelect will be my first stop! (I'm knocking on every piece of wood I can find!)Thanks Again!BrianIdaho
After searching google about my problem I was directed to Partselect.com, there I seen other people with the same problem I had and I read all there post's and I purchesed the parts they used. I believe it was just the one time thermal fuse but I ordered the other parts just to be safe. I placed my order in the afternoon and I received my parts the next afternoon! I was shocked. I installed the parts in less then 30min's using there diagram I printed. I tested the dryer and it worked again! I spent less then $50.00 for parts and shipping, I know I saved alot of money as having someone out to look at the dryer would've cost me at least $50.00
Unplug the dryer first. The igniter was located behind the front panel. On My gas dryer I had to remove 2 screws locacted by the lint screen to lift the top up then 2 screws were removed to lift and remove front panel. Note carefully disconect safety switch wire connecter first. After that there is 1 wire connecter and 2 screws to remove and replace ignitor. Note My ignitor was not bad just old. The thermal fuse on this model requires a little work to replace it. The back panel has to be removed. At least 9 screws hold it on and the vent hose is attached inside of the panel with a hose clamp. Once all that is clear all that remains is to unplug wires and remove 1 screw to replace thermal fuse. Note fuse failed because of lint droping from lint screen to the fan then geting stuck on the fuse screw to overheat and burn out fuse. I vacumed out all lint and dust front to back and also removed the fan cover to clean fan out There was alot of lint packed behind the cover. Then carefully assemble the fan cover - vent tube and back cover. Note this dryer has run for 16 years with no cleaning at all other than lint screen after drying clothes and no other problems so far.
