Would not run at all. Unit was overheating before it stopped completely.

Installed fuse and two thermostat parts. Your system of correlating problem to part needed to fix the problem is a really good system.

Machine was in need of new thermostats

I did my repair alone by myself after viewing a short video online at partselect.com The man in the video showed every step slowly and professionally. I took some extra time to clean the dust off behind the back of Dryer while I had it open for fixing.....thanks for your help and it saved me over $190 plus which I was quoted by technician for estimate and parts. I paid $43.00 for my parts...both High limit and Cycling thermostats were replaced. My wife told me good job honey ! You can do it too.

Dryer would leave clothes damp

First, I unplugged the dyer and then I removed all of the screws for the panel that covers the rear of the dryer. This exposed the cycling thermostat's location. I then removed the wires, one at a time so I would be able to put them back on in the same place. Then I removed the one screw using a nut driver and then put the new cycling thermostat in place. It was pretty easy.

Dryer wouldnt turn on.

Followed the instructions in the video provided on the partselect website. The video's instructions were excellent. Simple removed the back comver of the dryer, located the parts and replaced them. It would have cost me at least $500 for a new dryer. At least $150 to have a repair man come. I did this repair myself for $45!! I highly recommend partselect.com.

Working but no heat.

Just removed the back panel with nut driver . Located the parts and replaced one at a t-ime. I replaced all the parts that I order , so I really can't say which part fixed it. But working good now.
