Dryer was totally dead, had power to the outlet.

I studied the wiring diagram on the back of the dryer. I diagnosed a bad thermal fuse (no continuity). Found the part online at Part Select. The part came a few days later and I was back in business. Great Service.

CustomerFrank from Sicklerville NJ

Thermal fuse was blown

First I tested the fuse using my Volt-ohm meter, which showed a zero reading. So I knew what I needed and ordered it from you guys. To be safe I took the dryer apart and cleaned it good, when and while I reassembled it I replaced the old fuse with the new and now she's like brand new> I spent about $12.00 but I saved $600.00..Thank You "PartSelect"..

CustomerTimothy from Anderson IN

Dryer would not start / failed to run.

My dryer would not start or turn. I first moved the timer to midway between start and end of a cycle and could hear the timer ticking, likely eliminating the timer as the culprit. I next opened the door, manually pressed the door-closure switch and pressed START to see if the heating coil was heating without the drum turning to see if it might be a motor issue. After no heat, I unplugged the dryer and removed the vent hose by loosening the clamp and then removed the lower back cover using a socket and ratchet. Using a multimeter, I quickly found an open thermal fuse. I tested the remaining components to see if they also required replacement (coil, thermostat, high temp sensor) - all tested good. Took a chance and ordered the fuse alone instead of also purchasing replacement thermostat as many advise - if you have not replaced in a while, probably worth doing now. I have replaced mine within a year or two and chalked up the issue to my kids not clearing the vent, so I went without the new thermostat. Model number was found by opening the lid - parts arrived incredibly fast especially for being around the holidays. Replaced the fuse with ease - there is a notch in one end that holds the non-screw end in place so it's flush. Plugged the dryer back in, selected a cycle and confirmed the dryer started and heated as normal. I then had my son open the dryer door to confirm the drum stopped turning. HERE'S WHERE IT TAKES A TWIST: When the door was open, the heating coil continued to glow red hot (faulty timer??) I moved selector to end of cycle and the glow stopped. (timer's good) I then moved the selector mid-way between cycles with the dryer door open and WITHOUT PRESSING START and the coil again glowed red. Disconnected power, disconnected coil and using multimeter, checked from coil input to case ground (any bare metal) and found one side of the coil to be grounded. I was able to removed the heating coil and locate where the coil was touching the case. I shifted the coil back into place, checked with meter (no ground this time), reinstalled and tested with no problems. Reinstalled the back plate and vent hose. Finally, had conversation with the kiddos about being gentle when moving the dryer and all was well. The thermal fuse portion took 15 minutes from diagnosis to replacement. The overall process (due to the additional grounded heating coil) took 30-60. With any repair like this, I usually recommend visually verifying the heat cycles on and off by carefully running with the door open and holding the switch. This will help you determine if you may have an additional faulty part that made the first one fail. (Most likely, thermostat).

CustomerMark from Mountain View CA

Takes too long to dry

I was directed to the cycling thermostat for my problem. The thermal fuse was another possibility. I was too lazy to check them with a VOM before ordering so I ordered both. The repair video was helpful and the assembly diagram was useful for locating the parts. I removed the 9 back panel screws with a 1/4" socket wrench and removed the panel. Each part is held with a sheet metal screw which are removed with a screw driver. The connectors were very tight and I used pliers to pull them off the parts. The parts pop out of the mounting slots and are easily replaced and secured with the screws. I labelled all the wires (2 for the thermal fuse and 4 for the thermistor) but the polarity probably does not matter. I replaced the wires, replaced the back panel and replaced the 1/4" screws. The dryer works again. I checked the old parts with a VOM and found that only the cycling thermistor was bad, so now I have a spare thermal fuse.

CustomerLawrence from Houston TX

Dryer was working but no hot air

Actually two sets of parts were purchased. First I replaced the Igniter, thermostat and cysling thermostat. I would suggest starting out replaceing the thermal fuse and then go down the list. The last part I replaced seemed to be the problem. Replacement of the thermal fuse and thermostats was very simple, remove the back and replace the parts. The coil and igniter were more difficult. I had to remove the screws form the lid, pry open the top, remove inside screws and then access the igniter and coil. Instructions provided for igniter were useful, but there was one screw hidden from view that was not included in the instructions. Dryer is now working

The dryer would not heat up.

it would spin and blow, but it would not get hot. i changed the heating element, but that was not the problem. i changed the fuse, but that was not the problem. Apparently there is another fuse in line, and that was the problem.

After cleaning exhaust vent completely the dryer will only ignite once then only air will circulate

Changed the cycling thermostat and fuses but with no success. I am not sure how to access the ignitor and burner or heating coils as the cover does not have screws. Can anyone offer suggestions

CustomerPhillip from Bowling Green KY

On a gas whirlpool dryer, no heat.

After opening the rear cover to the control panel, I located a schematic diagram of the dryer which greatly aided in the repair. I began troubleshooting using the half-split method this required removal of the back and front covers). I found voltage at the input of the thermal fuse but none at the output. I then removed the thermal fuse to do a continuity check on the fuse and it revealed a defective thermal fuse. The fuse was held in place by 1, 1/4" head machine screw. I placed the part on order through PartSelect.com. The part was shipped the next day and received the day after that. I installed the new thermal fuse and all is well in my household (now that the dryer works again).

CustomerRobert from Plainfield IL

No heat

I needed to diagnose what the issue was. Several different parts can cause the heat in the dryer not to work. I tested each fuse with an Ohm meter and determined the Thermal fuse was displaying incorrectly on the Ohm Meter. So I disconnected the Thermal fuse's two plugs and taped them together (thus bypassing the fuse...just to validate). I turned the dryer on and bingo...heat. After that it just took 5 minutes to replace the Thermal Fuse.

CustomerChristopher from Downey CA

Dryer would not heat clothes

Unplugged the dryer from the electrical outlet.
Pulled out the dryer from against the wall, allowing room for me to work.
Turned off the gas to the dryer.
Removed all the screws from the black panel covering the cabinet, not from the console control.
Pulled off the black panel.
Located Thermal Fuse (two wires coming from it) at the bottom, just above Thermostat (several wires coming from it). Removed single screw attaching the Fuse.
Tested Thermal Fuse with MultiMeter set to Ohm for continuity. No continuity means the fuse was blown so I needed to replace it.

Since the back panel was already removed, I replaced the Thermostat for good measure. Just remembered to mark which wires went where and replaced Thermostat.
You can test before replacing everything.
