Had previously replaced the heater coil (purchased from PartSelect) and fixed the no heat problem. Should have taken advice given on this site and replace the thermostat and thermal fuse kit at that time. Since I knew how to remove the assembly it was easier this time. Just remove, unscrew the two parts and replace with the new ones. Reattach the wires and reinstall the assembly and it is now working again. Also vacumed the inside and trimed and replaced the exhast vent hookup for less restriction.

After trying to follow a very detailed description by another consumer, we googled our washer and found a site that showed step by step direction that took us through removing all panels and getting to the bellow easily. Not removing the proper panels, we found was making the job hard!I believe the site was applicance services...very helpful! Step by step literally!!Cost of parts through parts select reasonable.

Dryer would not start

I did continuity tests on the on/off push switch and the thermostats - all were good. After some research I discovered the thermal switch which is somewhat hidden on top of the blower. Sure enough, it failed the continuity test. The two sheet metal screws are difficult to loosen from the access door at the bottom of the dryer. You can test the fuse from that location but it's more difficult to replace it without taking the entire dryer apart, which is what I ultimately did. Once the drum is out the fuse is very accessible. However, if you need to make this repair, try replacing the fuse from the lower panel (and avoid the time/effort in removing the drum). You might be able to use a 1/4" open-end wrench (or pliers) to loosen the sheet metal screws. I only had a standard ratchet set which is too big to fit into that tight space. Either way, it's not a complicated repair...watch the installation video - it's not exact but it's close enough to guide you through this.

No Heat

The dryer was spinning, but the display said "sensing" for the whole cycle, and there was no heat. We took off the front of the dryer and the fuse was below the drum. This was an easy swap out, but it didn't fix the dryer. Then we ordered a thermistor, which also was an easy swap out but didn't fix the dryer. Last, we bought an ohm meter and tested the heating element, and discovered it did not have continuity. I had already ordered the heating element, as that was the next item to check on the list. The element was much harder to replace, because you have to take off the drum.

Dryer not heating

1) Unplug dryer from wall. 2) Remove bottom panel on front of dryer below door. There are 2 screws. You will need a 1/4" nut driver. 3) Remove 2 screws (same size) holding the clip in place at the front of the element housing. Then remove clip. 4) Pull housing and element forward. Will take some twisting and angling to get it out. 5) Make a diagram showing which wires go to what terminals. Then pull wires from terminals. (Now would be a good time to remove lint and trash or in my case that bank card I lost last year from bottom of dryer.) 6) Remove screw holding coil inside housing and pull coil from housing. Use pliers and some muscle. 7) Install new coil and replace wires, housing, and panel doing this process in reverse. For internal bias thermistor, while front panel is off, find the part inside. It is toward the center near the front of the dryer. There are 2 wires and 2 screws 1/4" hex heads. Remove wires, remove screws, and replace.

Broken door handle

  • Customer: Charles from Escondidio, CA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Although there were several diagrams available online discussing how to reverse the door direction nothing was available telling you that the door needed to be completely taken apart to replace the door handle. The screws holding the door handle are inside the door. Easy once you know that. I took the door off (following the door reversal directions) then took the screws holding the door together apart. It took a bit to take the broken pieces inside the door out because they have been exposed to such high heat for so long. Take your time and have patience so you don't break something else:)

Grinding and squeaky noise coming from dryer

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Found a YouTube video with step by step instructions for disassembling a Whirlpool Duet dryer. Though not the same model as mine it was close enough. The hardest part of this repair was figuring out how to pry apart the elctrical connectors but it's pretty simple once you get the hang of it. You also might want a little help taking off the door. It's not mandatory ( I'm a big guy and I managed it by myself) but having an extra pair of hands makes things easier. If you can take out screws and remember the order you took them out you should not have any problems. The actual pully assembly was held in my one bolt, easily replaced once you get access to it. If you don't want to change out the belt, removing the door is not necessary as you can get to the pully from the back side of the machine. But since you have it halfway disassembled already, you might as well go for it and not have to make a return visit. Total time including vacumning out all the lint from inside the dryer was three hours. Took my time and saved myself a few hundred dollars for sure.

Unscrew the philip screws only, note as you unscrew each one get some painters tape and tape the screw above each hole so as to remember which screws go back. They are not all the same, panel falls right off take of handle screws and replace.
