I removed about 10 screws to take the back cover plate off the dryer. It was very obvious where the heating element was; and, it only took the removal of two screws to remove the heating element for inspection. It was obvious that the coiled wires of the heating element were blackened and no longer able to do the job of providing enough heat to dry our clothes. I went on line and ordered the repair part from partselect.com about 3;30 P.M. on a Friday afternoon. I was really amazed to receive the needed repair part the very next day at about 1:45 P.M.---only about 22 hours after placing the order. I had the new part in and the dryer working less than 24 hours after ordering the repair part. This is the fastest service I have ever received from anything I have ever ordered. I used the cheapest delivery method---not the expensive overnight delivery service and still got my part in less than 24 hours. Three cheers for great service from partselect.com!

Clothes Dryer taking multiple cycles to dry

First I watched Partselect's wonderful videos on what could cause the dryer from having to use multiple cycles to dry and the parts involved. I then took the back of the dryer off and tested all three parts with a multi-meter to determine which part had no resistance. The thermal fuse did not register any thing, so I ordered the part and a few days later put it in. The dryer dries in just one cycle saving on the cost of repair and electric bill. Partselect.com is my first go to sight for any repair. They make it so simple and comprehensive that any one can do the repair. I then used duct tape to make a secure connection to the duct pipe in order for it to properly vent to the outside.

Previously I had repaired two washing machines and now a dryer, which is why my mom nick named me Josephine. So ladies you can make the repairs as well.

Followed the directions on the web site. made a hook out of a wire hanger to hold the drum in place (hook from the back frame to the front of the drum) while I set the belt tensioner in place. removed the hook and the rest was easy.Works Great!!! like a new machine.

Removed rear access panel screws, disconnected the 2 wires on the upper thermostat, removed 2 screws holding upper thermostat in place and installed the new one. Heating element was held in by 4 screws. I removed these and while the element was out, I replaced the lower thermostat. Installing the new jumper was tricky. This was simply due to the small area of the laundry room. The jumper wire itself was simple.

the drier belt broke and the tensioner was worn

I took off top of drier completely making sure to photograph wiring diagram for timer, then removed front. Laying drier on it's back, I could then install new belt and tensioner without needing a second pair of hands. I tried using bungee cord but found it easier for me to lay drier on its back. I completely vacuumed all areas including back of drier. I found the retainer clips for front of drier to be bent, so I straightened them. I also installed two sheet metal screws in case one of the retainers failed.

Remove the exhaust tubing connection and the back panel (five nut screws). Locate the fuse; it is just to the right of the lint trap shoot, midway between the top and bottom of the back panel area. Replacement is visually intuitive.

The repair is quite easy. However for me, the Cycling Thermostat did not fix the problem.

The Thermal Fuse blew. Ordered the part, came the next day, total repair done. Part & next day shipping, less than $23.00

Pull off the front panel of the dryer, and replaced the thermal fuse. Very easy. Plus, vacuumed out the whole inside of the dryer, the rear and the tube running from the dryer to the outside. Will be doing this at least every 3 months to be safe. You would be surprised at how much lint builds up inside the machine. Eve though we clean the filter trap after every use of a load of clothes.

Repair went fine. Really easy for the most part. Unfortunately it didn't solve my problem. Great place to get parts though. I'm going to continue my search for the source of the noise
