No heat in dryer

There was no heat but the dryer would operate properly in all other functions. I checked the ignitor (gas dryer) with a meter and it was okay. I traced the circut back and ended up at the thermal fuse and it was "open" I jumped it out and the dryer started to work. I knew the problem was the thermal fuse but more importantly why did it blow. Further investigation showed excessive lint in the duct. Needed to take the exhaust system apart and clean out the lint. also replaced the flexible dryer (too difficult to clean) and to make sure that I didn't over work the high/low thermostat and would be doing this repair again in the near future I replaced that also. Be careful and do not jump out the fuse and use the dryer as this will cause a fire. I did it to prove the problem only... Dryer works well again and we will probably get another 5 years out of it!

CustomerThomas from Oceanside CA

Dryer would run but not heat up

The repair, replacing the thernal fuse was easy, just one screw and then remove and replace by disconnecting and reconnecting two wires. It did take a bit of time to find which part was defective. I first removed the back panel and front panel and the drum to get at the igniter and flame window. I checked continuity of these parts as well as the gas solenoids and they all checked out ok. The thermal fuse was last on my list. It read as an open circuit. I temporarily jumpered the two wires at the fuse and checked that the igniter would now heat up. I spent over one hour removing the ductwork and giving the unit a thorough cleaning with a shop vac.

CustomerRudy from Forest Hills NY

Dryer stopped

Dryer stopped in the middle of a cycle. I opened the back and traced the feed wires from the power cord. With a volt meter I checked the thermal fuse which is were the power cord goes to first. It had power on the line side and none on the load side. this is the easy fix. Ps unplug unit while tracing the wires. Most of this is done without seeing them very clearly. I should also say I am a licensed Master electrician with over 30 years of trouble shooting.

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.

CustomerShawn from Fairmount IN

Dryer wouldn't start.

Let me start by saying that this was my first appliance repair EVER, & it was super easy. After watching the partselect.com video showing me how to replace the thermal fuse and starter switch, I finished the repairs within 20 minutes. I simply removed the back and top of the dryer, located the appropriate part, & replaced them according to the video. Even though it was a small accomplishment, I still felt very proud of myself.

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"..

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
