My dryer did not heat my clothes. I replaced the heating element, three thermostats, and a fuse. The whole installation took less than 15 minutes and was very easy!
First off I was really impressed about the videos provided. They helped make the repairs with more confidence. I changed just about every part related to an heating problem before I hit the defective part. Part I changed were Heating Element - 5600W 240V, Cycling Thermostat, Thermal Fuse, High Limit Thermostat. After replacing all these parts, still no heat. I then read that the Thermal cutoff kit has an additional sensor that you can't get separately but as a part of a kit which forces me to purchase an item twice. After another week spent waiting for the second order to arrive, the part came and I was able to replace and regained heat fairly quickly. Yeah! I do have an ohm meter but the dryer is at a location that is very difficult to reach when plugged in so changing the parts one by one was the safest way to go. It is fixed now and we are all happy. My only complaint is that the thermal kit was not mentioned as a possible issue or else I would have ordered it on the same order. In any case this earned me major brownie point to my significant other double Yeah!!!
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
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
Excellent video! Very clear. Thanks.
Remoave back of dryer, remove the old parts, install the new. But the dryer still is not heating
Replaced High limit thermostat and heating element. Worked like a charm.
Everything has been super easy so far. Replaced the heating element (super easy), the thermostat (super easy), and just replaced a fuse (super easy). Still no heat though. There are 2 more thermostats to replace, but getting kind of expensive. Not sure how far I should take it before just giving up. Not sure if I want to tear the dryer apart further. Any suggestions? The videos have been VERY helpful.
Using a adjustable speed drill, removed all the screws off the back panel of the dryer. Then took some pictures of wiring with my cell phone, (for reference on how everything was connected together). Removed the cycling thermostat and replaced it. Then removed the Heating element, put the new High limit thermostat on the new Heating Element and installed it on the dryer. Replaced the back panel and all the screws.
the repair was easy. I followed the instructions removed the back replace the part, put the back back on and was done
After checking the heating element and all thermostats and fuses, found that the high limit thermostat was bad by using a multimeter. Noticed the heating element had only been heating on on end because the metal was not showing any signs of heat even though the unit tested good. I ordered the parts from PartSelect.com and had them in two days. Watch the video on how to install. Posted site to my Facebook. This is a great website.
All I did was watch the how-to video on the website and follow the directions, fast, easy, and saved over $150 by doing it myself!!
After reading through a few of the repair stories online, I figured out the parts I needed. I placed the order for the parts, and they arrived promptly the next day. I replaced the heating elements all of the thermostats using the instruction vidoes from the site. The entire job took less than an hour and the dryer is running and heating better than ever. Thanks for all of your help and support....
It was a really easy repair. Simply removed the back cover and swapped out the parts. The only tricky part was getting the wires reconnected.
