Just turned it on one day and nothing happened. Checked the outlet to see if it was hot to rule out a tripped fuse.

Luckily I have a very mechanically minded son who immediately went to the your website, entered problem, found diagnosis. He removed the back of the dryer, found that th thermal fuse did indeed look bad. We sent for the new part, had it with in a few days, and it took him 5 minutes to have my dryer back in business!

The repair was made very simple with the help of Steve and his YouTube video instruction. I really can't take credit for the repair, my teenage son did it while I held the laptop and fed him the instructions. Clothes are dry, my wife is happy, so we're all happy and it cost less then $35.00.

I watched the associated videos and followed the steps. The one thing missing from the video is installing the tension wheel for the drive belt, but that is simple, just remember how the old one is installed when you remove it. I recoomend watching the video once or twice before you do anything so you are familiar with the steps then if you have a laptop run the video as you are doing the work. My dry is now like new for a small investment in parts and my time, well worth it and easy to do!

Well first let me tell you I am 64 yrs old and female. Thank you so much for the video. That was the life saver. I followed instructions from the video and yes it was as easy as the gentleman said. The hardest part was moving the dryer out. I also ordered a thermostat and cut off thermostat. The dryer works just perfectly now. Thanks again for making it so simple for a lady like me.

I suspected the heating element on the dryer, so I started shopping around for a replacement. This is before I started taking the dryer apart. I happened to run across PartSelect and they had videos to show me exactly what to repair for my exact model and particular problem. It was an easy task. Unplug the dryer, take the back panel off (a few 1/4" metal screws), take a few wires off the terminals, unscrew 2 more 1/4" screws, pull the heating element out, take off a terminal and place it on the new heating element, and do the reverse for installation. It can be done in the same amount of time it took to read this passage. Also, if you are curious, you can test the resistance on the coil of the old heating element to see if you have continuity. I found the burnt broken part pretty quick. This part can wear over time, and a brand new heating element makes the dryer work like brand new. Great for a $50 fix. Also, I ordered the part Wednesday night and when I got home from work on Friday, the part was waiting for me. Very quick processing and shipping.

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.
