Dryer would not start.

Unplug dryer from mains. Remove the back of the dryer. Thermal fuse is located on the left hand side near the bottom as you face the back of the dryer. Remove fuse and connect new fuse. Never repaired an appliance before and this was so easy!

Dryer wouldn't start

My 80 series Kenmore dryer wouldn't start so I looked online for a solution to the problem. One of the sites I found stated that the problem could be as simple as a thermal fuse if other potential issues could be ruled out. I ordered the part on a Monday from PartSelect with standard FedEx ground shipping - stated it could be 3-5 business days. To my amazement, the part arrived the next day! Awesome!!! I watched the video on the PartSelect site to make sure I knew how to fix it, then followed the easy instructions. All I needed to do was use the nutdriver to remove the back cover from the dryer, unplug the two wires going into the thermal fuse, remove the old fuse, and pop the new one in. Then I just plugged the wires into the new fuse, replaced the cover and voila, the dryer worked like a champ! Thank you PartSelect for saving me a needlessly high repair bill!!

Dryer stop working after I moved the timer setting while dryer was running. So I replaced the thermal fuse while I had the dryer away from the wall, plus the lint filter was torn.

The repair was easy, what took the longest was cleaning the lint from the inside of the dryer and the housing that holds the lint filter. The inside of our dryer is now as free of lint as the day we bought it.To make the repairs I pulled the dryer away from the wall and removed the vent hose and unplugged the dryer from the outlet.I then removed the screws from the back panel so I could replace the thermal fuse. I did this by removing one screw from the thermal fuse and pulled it free from the dryer.I then installed the new thermal fuse and screwed it to the dryer.Then I removed one wire at a time and installed them to the new thermal fuse.I then screwed the back panel to the dryer.Next I removed the screws and panel behind the control panel of the dryer so I could replace the timer.Once I could see the timer I compared my timer to the new one before doing anything else.Then I removed control knob from front of timer.Removed the screws holding old timer in place.Installed new timer to dryer with same screws and installed control knob to timer.Then I removed one wire at time from old timer and installed to new one, I did this until all wires had been connected.Then I installed the panel to the back of the control panel with the same screws.Installed new vent hose to back of dryer and plugged cord back into the outlet. Pushed dryer back into place.Remove old torn lint filter and replaced it with the new one.Wife then tried dryer out and it worked. Dryers been working just fine ever since.

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
