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.

Dryer would not turn on

I just wanted to send a big thank you to partselect.com without this site I would have spent at least $300 on a new dryer. The thermal fuse arrived very quickly and the diagnosis was very easy. I removed the back of the dryer after watching the video and unplugging the dryer. I was able to locate the fuse very easily thanks to the video, I unattached the fuse, attached the new fuse making sure I put the correct wires in the correct places. Then I put the back of the dryer back on after cleaning out all the lint everywhere. I plugged the dryer back in and to my delight...IT WORKED!! Thank you so much! I will definitely be back to this site and will recommend it to my friends.

My dryer just quit working

My husband looked up your website and figured out exactly what it was. . . the thermal fuse. So it took all of 5 minutes of him to repair it. Our little $10.79 part was such a lifesaver. We had people tell us to just throw the dryer out but no way! We will use this website more often, especially before we throw any appliances away! This is the greatest website. Now I have dry clothes again!! We were so happy!

Dryer would not start

I had worked as a stationary engineer/refrigeration mechanic for large commercial building/plant systems for several years at journey level. I also had worked as an instructor in this field. However I have not done much of this type work for several years. Using the wiring diagram contained within the control panel at the top of the dryer, was able to trace the sequence of operation to the component i suspected (thermal fuse). It was the thermal fuse per check with ohm meter. Instructions on the dryer internals indicated if thermal fuse blown to also replace cycling t stat. I also found that the blower unit was full of microdirt/lint, which was restricing airflow-vacuumed. ordered the parts overnight, and replaced. works fine now.The unit is my household electric dryer, made by whirlpool but sold under the kirkland costco brand. When i worked as a journey level technician, i always noticed that whirlpool product are generally a better quality than most, and have better parts availability, and ease of repair. this still holds true.
