I thought that I was going to have to buy a new dryer or rather a used one to replace my dryer when it stopped heating. I knew I could not afford an appliance repair person to come out to the house, so I searched for my appliance on the internet for repair parts. Your website helped me to figure out the part that I needed to replace; i.e. the thermal fuse for $9. Since you advertised that you took return parts, I placed my order. Without any hassle short of the obvious moving the dryer away from the wall and removing the back panel I was able to do this in a short time. I was so excited to realize that my dryer was heating up. Thank you.

Heat stopped completely & timer wouldn't work

I assumed a fuse was bad, although there were 3 possible fuses that might have caused the problem. I tested the Thermal Fuse #PS345113 and it was shot...the others were ok. I ordered a new fuse and everything works fine. The timer was not working on only the heated cycles but the new fuse fixed that as well. This took a bit longer than it should have because it included a lot of cleanup and moving an adjacent washing machine as well.

Watching videos on the internet, I learned how to test the parts of the dryer. I learned that the thermal fuse was the problem. I ordered the part and it arrived in a few days. I changed out the part, put the dryer back together, and it worked! Saved me a great deal of money!

Dryer not heating.

My dryer element was not heating and there did not appear to be any damage to the element itself. There were several thermal fuses attached to the heating element enclosure. Test them with a voltmeter and see if there is conductivity. If there isn't, then the fuse is faulty/broken. Replaced my broken fuse with 3390915 and the element heats once again. The original part was not the 3390915, but Kenmore recommends replacing the stock thermal fuses with 3390915. Thank you!

Dryer would not start

My dryer is a KitchenAid KEYE660W (electric). I tried to start the dryer but it would not run. I did notice that if I held the start button down, I could feel light vibrations through the button. Searched through Yahoo and this site and determined that this is often a bad Thermal Fuse. Used the diagrams on this site to locate where it should be, removed the back of the dryer with a screwdriver, removed the two wires clipped to the Thermal Fuse and unscrewed the Thermal Fuse. I had a friend test the fuse with a Multimeter. It was bad so I ordered another one on this site and it arrived in two days. Screwed the Thermal Fuse back in and clipped the two wires back on. Started the dryer and it worked!!! Replaced the back of the dryer. This repair took 15 minutes MAX and taught me a little bit about Mulitmeters.

Watched how-to video provided on PartSelect website. Most time was spent cleaning out the cabinet of lint and other debris. I found over 5 bucks in loose change! I Found pulling the belt over the motor pulley to be the trickiest. Note: my dryer will be 30 years old come this September. I wonder how many more years I'll get out of it!

I consulted the internet and found Part Select and use online repairman to diagnose the problem and found the roller solution with the parts, video and parts illustration. Sure enough, the left roller hole was worn and egg shaped. I ordered the parts on a Wednesday afternoon. While I waited, I got all the lint from the bottom pan, motor, and around the burner cleaned out and ready for the new parts. The parts arrived Friday morning and I installed them and put the dryer back together before noon. The dryer works and sounds like a new machine. Now I am ready to attack the squeaky fan motor in the freezer compartment of our refrig.
