CustomerAll About Eve from Hollywood FL

Dryer was blowing cold air

It's amazing... I fixed my dryer!! I am a 47 year old woman with no technical training, and I did it!

I live in a apartment and I bought the Whirlpool Dryer (Model #LER7646JQ0) USED for $150 about 6 months ago. The dryer started blowing cold air, so I called the place that I bought it from and they quoted me a price of at least $300 to fix the dryer.

After searching through google, I found the partselect.com website, and read the repair stories. I decided to take a chance. I ordered just 2 of the suggest 4 parts that could fix the issue, and the dryer did not work. The next day I order the other 2 parts, and that did it - my dryer was fixed.

The diagrams on the site were a little confusing to me (the dryers looks a little simpler inside) but it was easy to repair. I used a screw driver and plier to do the repair, however it would have been much easier if I had a socket set. I would suggest buying all parts suggested, and return the items you don't need. Here are the parts I used:

1. THRMST-FIX (Thermostat, High Limit 221 F
2. USE WPL 279838 (Heating Element (10" long x 6" wide)
3. Thermal Cut-Off Kit
4. Cycling Thermostat (Limit: 155-25) (Thermostat, Internal-Bias)

Good Luck!

Dryer would not heat.

Used the trouble shooting tips provided as a guide and a multimeter to test and find the defective part. Testing indicated no continuity thru the high limit thermostat. I ordered the part and received it in 3 days. Had the repair done a full week before the repairman could even come to the house and saved well over $100 in repair costs and 2 weeks or longer of down time. Great website and service.

Clothes coming out damp, after a 60 min cycle

1. Unplug unit, next disconnect vent then remove back cover. 2. replaced element (very easy) then 2 thermostats, then put cover back on. 3. Removed frt. cover by following directions that came with maint. kit this too was easy. The hardest part is getting belt on as your putting drum back in, and even that was only so hard. Just TAKE YOUR TIME, and you will get it.

No heat in dryer and lint filter torn

Dryer didn't heat. I got the heating element thru sears and when I ordered it I thought I should also order the thermostats but I didn't. Element arrived two days after ordered right on time. Slipped right in in a few minutes. Turned dryer on. No heat. Went back to drawing board. Watched videos on part select site and realized I needed thermostats. Ordered them and lint filter. Arrived right on schedule and also slipped in in no time flat. Turned dryer on and yes it heated perfectly. Wife was pretty impressed with new lint filter as other one was torn with jagged edges. MY SUGGESTION: if your dryer doesn't heat and you can't test each individual item thermostats and heating element order the three of them ( high limit and cycling thermostats and heating element) cause they'll probably will all go at the same time anyway. Then won't have to wait on the second shipment if things don't work with partial replacement. Parts select was great and videos are well understood and easy to follow. Would certainly use again.

CustomerFirmin from Lansing MI

No heat problem

First off I was really impressed about the videos provided. They helped make the repairs with more confidence. I changed just about every part related to an heating problem before I hit the defective part. Part I changed were Heating Element - 5600W 240V, Cycling Thermostat, Thermal Fuse, High Limit Thermostat. After replacing all these parts, still no heat. I then read that the Thermal cutoff kit has an additional sensor that you can't get separately but as a part of a kit which forces me to purchase an item twice. After another week spent waiting for the second order to arrive, the part came and I was able to replace and regained heat fairly quickly. Yeah! I do have an ohm meter but the dryer is at a location that is very difficult to reach when plugged in so changing the parts one by one was the safest way to go. It is fixed now and we are all happy. My only complaint is that the thermal kit was not mentioned as a possible issue or else I would have ordered it on the same order. In any case this earned me major brownie point to my significant other double Yeah!!!

Dryer runs not much heat..

I am almost 60yr. old, I have never come across a better do it yourself site ever. The repairs went well and the video instruction were even better, where have you been my whole life? Instead of picking & plucking parts I went for all 3. I have gone back and forth to stores way to many times in the past for repairs. This was quick and easy and I had no doubts about the job. Prices were right shipping was fast and my wife & I are now happy dry people. Thanks much PARTSELECT

CustomerAndrew from Alturas CA

No heat

I first repaired the most likely suspects. The heating element and fuse. That did not do the trick. So then I replaced everything else that could effect the heat, that was over 1% of the likely problem. Wala...fixed. Directions were easy, work was easy and the result was a working dryer, good as new. I probably replaced a few items that were not bad but the entire cost was just over $100. A far cry from replacing the dryer at $599
