After carefule research, realized that I did not need to replace the part. It was my heating element that was burnt out.
Followed the video instructions. The part that fit the bottom did not match exactly, however.
I replaced the heating element and thermo-couplings. The repair itself went quickly. I had to order parts twice because I could not find accurate instructions on how to troubleshoot. I needed clear instructions on how to test the various parts, like how to properly use the continuity tester meter. I probably replaced more parts and did more work than needed.
I and my husband after noticing the dryer would not heat, waited awhile to move to make sure it wasn't faulty wiring in our old rental. When we moved and it didn't work still we examined the heating element and noticed it was burned out. We did not have a tester we just went by visual inspection. We ordered the heating element and attached it and it still did not work. After reading several repair stories on PartsSelect we realized that the Thermal cut off may have been tripped and therefore needed to be replaced. We purchased the thermal cut off kit which included two types of fuses for our dryer and a replacement connector in case we needed to splice the wiring. We also purchased a cycling thermostat just in case. When we got the parts the instructions were fairly easy to understand but it took us a while because the part required us to splice the wire and connect a new end onto the existing wire. (The new thermal cut off did not have the old welded metal connection and instead had a wire that connected the existing wiring to the new cut off) We cut the old wire to remove the head, cut a small portion of the protective rubber around and slid it off the end. We then attached the new head and manually crimped the metal closed. We had to do this to our existing wire and the wire sent with the kit making sure we added the female and male ends to the right wire (per instructions). The new cut off connected to the heating element with screws instead of sliding in and around the bent openings. We then simply reconnected all the wiring as illustrated. The other thermostat and fuse connected the same as the ones we removed.All I can say is it worked, and it heats and drys well. Thank you parts select for sending the item so quickly. Two days after ordering! Will definitely order from you guys again!
pulled of back and exposed heat element. Made up jumper for themostat and cutout from little sliver of beer can to bypass thermal switches.unit worked so ordered kit to replace non functioning thermostat. Quick delivery and quick instal. I had left back panel off after test . All is well
Checked continuity of Heating element. It was OK.Checked Thermal Cut off and thermostat adjacent to element. Thermal cutoff failed continuity test.Ordered kit. Received in two days. Replaced Thermal cut off and thermostat.Dryer worked properly.
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....
First I removed the nuts from to get the back of the dryer off (I think there were 8 or so). Then I removed the cycling thermostat (careful to watch were the wires were), I ten installed the new one. I then did the same with the thermal cut-off and the heating element. The door catch kit wasn't what I needed so I didn't install it. If I would have known it was going to be so easy I would have done this repair months ago!!!
first I tested the thermal cut-off and found it to be bad. ordered the new one and had it in three day's. I took the two screws out and pulled the thermal cut-off out, installed the new one with new screws. That simple.
Followed your instructions.Super easy but a bit messy ,Works great thanks. Thank you! Brian Wellmon
I switched out the thermostat
