Dryer would stat but no heat

The part came in very quickly. If you know how to remove the front panel, it is very easy to repair. The hard part is to diagnose the problem. The first thing to check is the igniter. If it comes on then you look for faulty limit switches. If you have lots of training in electronics and appliance repair this is very easy, if you do not I would not try this. I have 40 years in the repair business, It still took me 1hr. to find the problem. the switch was intermitted, one time the dryer would work the next time it would not. Good luck and happy repairs.

Followed the video for the idler lever, replacing that was easy but replacing the motor assembly proved to be more difficult (there was no video). Re-installing the clips that hold the motor in place was a pain (special tool required?)but other than that, everything went together nicely. The how - to videos were very helpful. E

First read How to Repair and watched the videos. Followed their step by step explanations. Everything went accordingly. The offending part was the idler pulley. Parts fit like the originals. Dryer sounds almost like a new one. My wife took me to lunch. Life is good!

Installing the new switch was a snap. With the dryer unplugged, open the top using a putty knife to release the 2 clips - one on each side. Lift the top and support it to stay open. Next, note the wire color and location for each of the 3 wires. Remove each wire from its prong on the bad switch by gripping the connector with pliers and pulling off. Next remove the bad switch by squeezing the tabs on the sides of the switch to release it. The switch removes to the front of the dryer. Install the new switch in the same method and reconnect the wires as before making sure the colors go back on the same prongs. I had to replace one of the connectors with a larger one (that came with the switch) since one of the prongs on the new switch was larger than the orginal (bad) switch. To do this, I cut the old connector off, stripped the end of the wire, and crimpted on the new connector. I had to be careful not to waste too much wire since there was very little slack to work with.

loud squeaking

I unplugged the dryer, pushed the clips loose and tipped the lid up and tied it open to a cabinet above. Disconnected the electrical connections to the front panel and removed front panel. Then I disconnected the electrical connections to the drum support. Removed four sheet metal screws holding the support and lifted out the support. Removed the drum glides at the bottom, installed the new drum glides with felt pads. I replaced the drum rollers just so I didn't have to do it later. Put everything back in reverse order and running quiet! Well worth the $42.57 spent for parts and postage.

Besides successfully ordering the correct part I also noticed there were instructions on the website as to it's removal process. MOST helpful, I had not predicted the difficulty in doing it until I read the instructions. Very helpful.

First time through it was an interesting adventure... Had to take the front completely apart... When I took the drum out that is when a roller earning had melted off... And the limit timer was broken... The second time through it went faster... And I had my son help... He is not mechanically inclined but he did well...

Heat would not work in the dryer

My wife told me the dryer was not drying. It tumbled but had no heat. I went online and discovered that the possible problems were a bad heating element, or a bad thermal switch. I borrowed a multimeter at work and determined that the heating element had continuity but the thermal switch did not. That made me happy since the thermal switch is a cheap part. Unfortunately you have to take the whole dryer apart to get to it but I took pictures of any wire connections and it was not that bad. While doing it I decided to also replace the belt since it was fraying in some places. I ordered the parts from Parts select on a wednesday and had them friday morning. I used the attached video's to correctly connect the belt and replace the switch and then cleaned out all the lint from the inside cabinet and hoses and now it works perfectly. Once I took the whole thing apart I also found a long lost 10 dollar bill behind the panels. This repair was well worth the effort and cost only 26 dollars, if I deduct the 10 I found net cost was 16 dollars. Could not be happier, Very happy that a place like Parts Select exists, without it I would have been replacing a perfectly good dryer.

Not quite as show on your repair intructions. But, all in all not that difficult. Things went very well. However, in the midst of the repair I found I had to replace other worn out parts.
