I watched the part select you tube video that links specific loud dryer noises to specific broken or loose parts. It allowed me to identify the part I needed, which I ordered through their website. Two days later, I had the part and installed it, with help from another online video that showed me how to take the dryer apart to install the drum support roller. Thank you, the information provided made the repair quite easy. It works perfectly now!

My Whirlpool Electric dryer was taking 3 or 4 times longer to dry clothes.

I removed about 10 screws to take the back cover plate off the dryer. It was very obvious where the heating element was; and, it only took the removal of two screws to remove the heating element for inspection. It was obvious that the coiled wires of the heating element were blackened and no longer able to do the job of providing enough heat to dry our clothes. I went on line and ordered the repair part from partselect.com about 3;30 P.M. on a Friday afternoon. I was really amazed to receive the needed repair part the very next day at about 1:45 P.M.---only about 22 hours after placing the order. I had the new part in and the dryer working less than 24 hours after ordering the repair part. This is the fastest service I have ever received from anything I have ever ordered. I used the cheapest delivery method---not the expensive overnight delivery service and still got my part in less than 24 hours. Three cheers for great service from partselect.com!

Clothes Dryer taking multiple cycles to dry

  • Customer: Colleen from Athens, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

First I watched Partselect's wonderful videos on what could cause the dryer from having to use multiple cycles to dry and the parts involved. I then took the back of the dryer off and tested all three parts with a multi-meter to determine which part had no resistance. The thermal fuse did not register any thing, so I ordered the part and a few days later put it in. The dryer dries in just one cycle saving on the cost of repair and electric bill. Partselect.com is my first go to sight for any repair. They make it so simple and comprehensive that any one can do the repair. I then used duct tape to make a secure connection to the duct pipe in order for it to properly vent to the outside.

Previously I had repaired two washing machines and now a dryer, which is why my mom nick named me Josephine. So ladies you can make the repairs as well.

My dryer stopped working, no heat and no tumbling.

The repair was easy enough with videos from PartSelect and the internet. The fusible link was the culprit and Whirlpool recommended replacing the thermostats at the same time. It took me less than 15 minutes to replace everything. Turn off the circuit breakers, unplug the dryer and you should be able to make the repair without worry. I used a nutdriver, needlenose pliers and screwdrivers and replaced everything one at a time, one wire at a time. It was easy. I actually spent more time vacuuming out the lint deposits and cleaning out the ducts than I did doing the repair. Thanks PartSelect for saving me hundreds of dollars!

Dyer had intermitent heat and took forever to dry clothes.

  • Customer: Jason from Wapakoneta, OH
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Removed rear access panel screws, disconnected the 2 wires on the upper thermostat, removed 2 screws holding upper thermostat in place and installed the new one. Heating element was held in by 4 screws. I removed these and while the element was out, I replaced the lower thermostat. Installing the new jumper was tricky. This was simply due to the small area of the laundry room. The jumper wire itself was simple.

After testing all the thermostats, I realized it was the heating element. I ordered the part right away, it came in 2 days later. It took me 15 minutes to open the dryer, put the new part in and then close the dryer. I must have saved $200. Thanks partselect for the videos and the fast shipping.
