Dryer quit working during a cycle and would not turn on.

Through reading I thought it was the thermostat or thermal fuse. I bought both and received the parts very quickly. Unfortunately that was not the issue. Dryer still doesn't work and I got a new one. It was worth it and I would use part select again hopefully next time I know what I am doing.

Switch broke and would not light the refrig compart

The repair descripition was accurate. The difficult part was getting the old switch out. It has a release clip that is hard to reach. It took several tries and a bit of force to get the old part to release from the cabinet.

In stalling the new part was easer that the instructions explaned. There was no need to split the original plug. I unplugged the old switch, plugged in the new and snapped it into place. 30 seconds after I started the reinstall it was in the cabinet and working

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.

Dryer wouldn't turn on.

First I pulled the dryer away from the wall, after which I disconnected the power and dryer vent. I then removed the eight screws holding on the back of the dryer. Next, I disconnected the two wires to the part and unscrewed the mounting screw. I then removed the bad part, replaced it with the new part, and reversed the above steps.

The problem was the dryer wouldn't heat up (gas). Would run but just not heat up.

So I opened the back up, and looked down the flame shoot and I could see that the igniter was never glowing red. (You can actually see the red glow of the igniter when its working right, then you here the solonoid click and flame. But again all this when its working correctly.) So anyway, no heat no glowing red.

I took the voltmeter out, grounded 1 lead and just followed the voltage (using the schematic provided), through the switches, yada yada trying to trace how far it got.

Voltage got to 1 side of thermal fuse, but not to other side. Bingo. Disconnected fuse and did continuity check - open. All of this took diagnosing took 1/2 hour to hour. Not really counting toward fix. Ordered the part at parts select. Put a jumper over the fuse so that clothes could still be dried (probably not recommended but it works). Part arrived in 2 days. Didn't even put the back panel on.

The part is right on the back. 1 screw, 2 space terminals. Takes all of 3 minutes to replace. Then another 5 minutes to put the back panel on and vent hose back on. Most of that is because you are working in a cramped space. (I don't have the biggest laundry room.)

Can't beat parts select!

Parts select + a little know how, saved me about $400.

Dryer would not blow hot air

I guess you could say I went through the process of elemanation, first I replased the thermostat,removed 2 screws pulled off 3 wired with a pair of pliers put them on the new one, still no hot air so I replaced the fuse, took out 1 screw removed 2 wires and placed them on the new fuse, still no hot air, finally I replaced the thermal cut-off switch and WOW that was it hot air was blowing again, the process was very easy I ordered everything from parts slect and they were here the next day, only had to take the back off the dryer with a nut wrench, locate the thernastat, fuse and thermal cut-off which was just above the heating coil I removed 1 screw pulled off 2 wires and place them on the new one. very easy and the repair storys really helped locating the problem

No heat in the dryer

after removing the back panel (5 screws) i replaced the heating element, (about 15 minutes, after vacuuming all of the lint and dog hair), replaced the panel, but still no heat. removed the back panel again, and replaced the thermal fuse. (2 screws, 5 min.) still no heat, so on to the thermostats. (there are 2, both in easy reach). i replaced the one in the heating element housing first, as this made sense. (it has a red stripe across it, so they can't be confused), replaced one connector, which the new part requires, buttoned it up, and presto!! the dryer works just as new! all told, i have less than 100.00 with all of the new parts. the longest part of the whole thing was cleaning all the lint and debris out first, which you absolutely must do

I had no heat to dry clothes

After receiving the part I pulled the dryer out for easy access. Used only a nut driver to remove back cover and the part to replace was easily identified. Then it took a little while to remove all the dust and other particles that had built up over the years. The actual replacement of the part only took a couple of minutes. Reattached the back cover and put back in place. Turned on dryer and I now had heat. Easy fix.
