CustomerChris from Inman, SC

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.

Dryer wouldn't heat

I shorted the thermal cutout after removing the back.
I then ordered the thermal Cut-Off Kit from PartSelect.
While this was not my first order from them, I was still impressed with the ease and by how soon I received the part without any hassles or glitches. PartSelect will be my primary parts supplier from now on.
