It was very easy. I figured out that I needed a new heating panel, entered my model number and voila, 1 1/2 days later it was on my porch. I used the video on the Parts Select website and was able to install it myself, very easy. Saved myself time & money, a lot of money.

Removed the eight 1/4" screws securing the back panel of the dryer, removed the electrical connections, and the two screws holding the heating element. Swapped the plastic switch to the new element, and reassembled. The repair took less than ten minutes and the dryer works perfectly.

Queried the Internet for my model number of dryer. Found Part Select web site. Went to the site and entered my model number again. Found a list of common problems and my particular dryer problem was listed. Only two possibilities - thermal fuse or timer. Studied the diagnostic criteria for thermal fuse and that seemed to fit my situation. Watched the video of how to replace the thermal fuse. After watching the video, I was convinced I could fix the dryer. Ordered the thermal fuse and it arrived in about 2 days. Followed the instructions previously viewed on the video and replaced the thermal fuse. Success!! Mission accomplished!! I felt great that I had done this by myself with help from Part Select. A service call from a repair establishment would have cost about $130.00. I fixed my dryer for about $9.00 plus shipping cost of about $7.00. And I didn't have to wait for two weeks for a repairman to show up and occupy my whole day. I forwarded the Part Select link to all of my friends and relatives and told them to use Part Select for their repair needs. Awesome web page and service! Use them!

Drum turning, but no heat

I first pulled the drum and turned on the dryer. The igniter never turned on. So I unplugged the dryer from the outlet and measured the resistance of the igniter, which was ok. I pulled the back panel and checked the thermal fuse, which was open. I also pulled the lint system plenum off of the unit, which was clogged with lint. This probably caused the thermal fuse to overheat. I cleaned out the lint collection system, replaced the thermal fuse and re-installed the drum. dryer is now working fine.

I viewed a number of vidieos on the Webb to determine the possible problems. The vidieos explained and demonstrated how to test the parts that could have been causing the problems. I tested the parts described in the vidieos and the ones I was able to test showed that they were not defective. I was unable to test the Cycling Thermostat and the High Limit Thermostat to my satisfaction so I ordered the two parts and installed them as demonstrated on the vidieos. The dryer works as if it was a new one. I am a very satisfied customer and will definitely purchase my parts from partselect.com in the future.

Took off the back panel removed old wires. Piggybacked new wire and put back together. The video was very helpful as far as where exactly to insert the new wire. Overall a very good experience. When it first happened my husband and I thought we would need a new dryer. We found your website and figured out what the problem most likely was. Ordeed the part it came within a few days. The money we saved not having to get a new dryer is great.

When started, the motor would run but the drum would not turn.

After removing the bottom front panel using a putty knife to pry the upper left and right edges of the panel, I noticed that the long thin drum belt had broken. I went online to PartSelect, and using the Whirlpool model number, found the parts diagrams. Since the dryer is 20 years old, I decided to order the maintenance kit part# PS373087 which includes new idler wheels, retainer clips, and a tension pulley as well as the belt . I found a number of webpages that offer guidance in replacing the belt. Along with the instructions that came with the maintenance kit, I was able to do the repairs and have the dryer up and running in 30 minutes. Remember to remove the door springs before taking off the upper front panel. You only need to loosen the bottom screws on this panel. Leaving them in place helps to align and hold the panel when re-installing it.

Dryer started to turn but stopped putting out heat. I used a multimeter, and found both high limit switches to be good, and all other electrical components good. I removed the heating element and examined it to notice that the first coil was broken. I ordered the new part and replaced it, and all is well, better than before.
