CustomerStan from Riverside CA

No heat

LIFT THE TOP. REMOVE (2) SCREWS HOLDING THE FRONT OF THE DRYER IN PLACE. LIFT THE FRONT OFF THE 2 RETAINING CLIPS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE DRYER. THE HARDEST PART OF THE INSTALL WAS REMOVING AND REPLACING THE IGNITER. A COUPLE OF HELPING HANDS FROM THE GIRLFRIEND TO Hold the PARTS IN PLACE WHILE I replaced the two screws was very helpfull. installing the multi rib belt was also very easy with the help of a second pair of arms to reach under the drum to thread the belt onto the tensioner. the lint filter, of coarse was just a matter of throwing the old cracked one away and replacing w/ the new.

Door seal partially torn off. Lint filter worn with holes.

Parts Select made it extremely easy to order parts from their site. Parts came in a timely manner and very reasonable priced. Thanks to Parts Select! Door Seal just needed to be removed and replaced by pushing into little slot openings.

Brooken lint filter and door seal

It was easy - I had my 12yr old daughter do it. The old door seal was completely removed, then you placed the new seal in the apropriate knoches that are on the door of the dryer. The lint filter just had to be placed in the vent. - Done.

It wouldn't start

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element completely out and disconnected the two wires.

From there it was just a matter of installing the new part.

Anybody could do it

CustomerCharles from Gettysburg PA

Noise, shaking, from foreign object in the blower, from operating without the lint filter

Lint filter replacement is routine maintenance. operating without a filter causes problems, a dryer sheet was sucked thru the opening and into the blower wheel, causing a lot of noise, and shaking because of the unbalance. I popped the top of the machine up, removed two screw holding the front in place, removed the front, gaining access to blower.
Removed the offending sheet, straighted the bent fin, and put everything back together again. Installeed the new filter, now it runs smooth, and quiet. mission accomplished.

CustomerJill from Hadley PA

Dryer stopped running, hot smell, would not restart

I first made sure there was power to dryer. It was ok so I unpluged the dryer from the socket and afer researching on line I was sure it was the thermal fuse. I check continuity on the fuse and it did not have continuity. So I installed a new fuse and high temp thermostat (they come together)
Just lift top of dryer up and back. In the left rear corner is the heating element. On top of the element is the thermostat. On the right side is the fuse it is a round disc with two white wires attached. The thermostat and heating element need to be removed to install fuse (one screw each and lift out of the way ) . Need to check for blocked lint or like I had the white plastic hose had a kink and need replaced with metal lint hose.
