I removed the 9 screws from the back plate of the dryer. I cleaned all the lint off the wires and the entire back of the unit with a paint brush and vacuum cleaner. Then I removed each part with a nut driver, also removing the wires and replaced each part in less that 1/2 hour! The videos were a huge help. Now my 16 year old dryer works like new. Saved lot of $$$. Thanks Partselct you're the Greatest!

very simple. actually did a little more then was necessary. once we removed the back of the dryer, used our vacuum to vacuum up all the lint that was back there. Watched the video on how to repair the part when we ordered it and it was easy as can be.. we have used this web site to repair our oven, fridge and now the dryer. Everything went according to plan. I reccomend this site as much as i can and it has saved us a lot of money. Thank you!

Dryer wouldn't turn on

  • Customer: Scott from Cypress, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

When I initially inspected the dryer when it stopped working, I noticed a ball of lint had collected on the backside of the thermal fuse. I figured that had allowed the temperature to exceed the fuse's max temp. To relace, I simply removed the dryer's rear panel, disconnected the thermal fuse and replaced it. Once all back together, the dryer powered on with no problem.

Belt Broke

Had an idea how the repair would go. The video is a great tool for someone not mechanically inclined. Easy fix and will save from paying a repair person. Suggestion .... put a small block of wood (or something simular) under the drum when you pull the front cover forward to save from having the drum drop down making sure the back seal is still seated and in place. No big deal and easily fixed if it pulls away.

Squealing noise during drying cycle

  • Customer: Anthony from Carolina Shores, NC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

Repair was as straightforward and simple as the videos implied. The most difficult part of the repair was disconnecting the door wiring. It could be more plainly shown in the videos. After that it was simple. The cleanup inside the dryer, lint, etc., took as long as the repairs. An extra set of hands to hold the drum in place while routing the new belt over the drive pulley would have made it even simpler. Runs like a new dryer now.

clothes not drying very well to not at all

  • Customer: Robert from San Pablo, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I first examined the electrical diagram that came on the inside of the rear panel to determine where to check for loss voltage since this problem had all the tale,tale signs of a device not receiving power to turn on so I began at one end of the circuit and using my Fluke meter on the AC scale along with the electrical diagram found the thermal fuse opened.At that time I went to your site to see if I could buy this part and found you had it plus more so even though the thermo switch tested good I felt the need to replace it along with the thermo fuse as a set. I'm an electronic tech for a different type of machines but this was still just an electrical problem like the machines I work on daily.

Took the back off, separated the heat element from the machine, marked all wires so they would go back to the original spot. Was not necessary since the clips were different sizes. Put in new part and reassmbled.

We took towles from the washer that had still contained more water, the spin cycle must have had a problem.

I felt the belt had broken since the unit was still running. I went on-line looked at some you tube movies to get some idea what to do. Was very helpfull. Found on-line how to get the part forb this nearly 20 year old dryer. Had the part shipped overnight, was able to track it. Followed your innstallation instruction, With the heavy rubber bands hooks at both ends it was easy. Never done this before, sure saved a good amount of money.
