If your dryer is not heating when turned on, first check your circuit breakers. Dryers with 220 volt have 2 - 110 volt circuit breakers attached to each other. If you don't find any breakers tripped the next thing you should do is disconnect the dryer from all power sources. With a multi meter check the 220 volt wall outlet for 110 volts on each side. Then check for 220 volts when attached together. If that all checks good then it's time to move to the heating element. Simply remove the back cover from dryer (dryer must be unplugged from all power sources) at the bottom right you'll find the hearing element connection. Disconnect both connectors and check for continuity. If no continuity then chances are your hearing element has a break in one of the coils.

The dryer would not start when pushing the power button and the timer clicked rapidly. Another You Tube video lead us to the thermal fuse. First, we took the lower front panel off, it had two little groove places to pry open with a flat head screwdriver. Then we took off the venting piece. It was jammed full of lint which is why the thermal fuse blew. The thermal fuse itself was tricky to get at the nut in order to loosen it. We vacuumed out all the lint, cleaned the venting piece and lint filter. When the part came, again the nut was tricky, but just requires patience. Put everything back together and the dryer works great again! Really easy and I wonder how many dryers get replaced when this happens.

I woke up one morning to the dryer not working. Every company that I called wanted to charge a high price to come check the dryer. I decided to get on YouTube to troubleshoot the issue. There were a few videos that I saw, but the video for partselect was the best one I saw. I decided to explore the site to see if there was something I could do to fix it. I love the Instant appliance repair help, where you give the issue and it tells you what the problem most likely is. When I put in my model number, it said that it was most likely the thermal fuse or thermostat. I decided to get both since they were inexpensive. I received the part within a couple of days. I decided to come back to the site to make sure I was putting the part in correctly. If it wasn't for this site, I would have been paying hundreds of dollars instead of the $30 that I spent. Thanks so much PartSelect!!!!!!

I tore down the dryer, to find any and all issues. The belt was worn, the rear support wheels were worn, the Blower Wheel was cracked and busted, the left felt support was absent, the right felt support was shot, the water tube leading to the steaming chamber was split in two and disconnected. Ordered all parts from here, they shipped VERY fast, and the hardest part is getting the drum back in and set right. The belt was fairly 3easy to put back on if you removed the water tube support and get your right hand all the way back in there so you can pull the pulley wheel back while holding the belt. Completely cleaned the cabinet out, vacuum and scraper. Put a new exhaust hose on while I was at it, just in case. Once everything was put back together, carefully, the dryer works as good as new. I was told to never get rid of this dryer, they quit making them, and I see why. Easy to repair, does my dress clothes in the top cabinet, dries like a commercial machine in the lower. Oh some installation notes...The front panel comes completely off, if you disconnect the ground and the yellow wire on the lower right (your right) side. This makes everything else much easier. There are 4 front panel screws, 4 edge screws, and four counter screws inside the upper cabinet that must be removed. I had to pull the side holder screws to removed the top plat so I could remove the drum. Keep track of your screws!!! You will need a flathead, a Phillips, a small socket (I forget what size), and some needle nose pliers to remove clips (from the wheel).

Dryer rusn but no heat

Initial diagnoses suspected a faulty igniter. After deterininig that there was not power to the igniter I unplugged the dryer and systematically tested the continuity of each of the temperature limit swithches which all checked OK. The last item in the circuit is the thermal fuse which proved to be faulty. To confirm that this was the only problem I monentarily by passed the fuse to verify that the burner came on. To do all this I had to remove the fron panel and take out the drum. Actually the thermal fuse is located behind th back cover and is very easy to replace and probably should have been my fist go to suspect. Note the likely cause of the thermal fuse failure is a plugged up lint filter or exhaust duct which should be checked before installing a new fuse.

We have a 20 year old Whirlpool dryer and it stopped heating and drying. I searched online for causes and linked to this website. The problem list recommended the heating element replacement. I checked a local appliance store and they had the element for $91.00. I quickly ordered the element form the web site for half the price delivered. Not being too handy, I watched the installation video, grabbed my nut driver set and headed to the laundry room. The back came off in minutes and I was able to swap the element in about 5 minutes. I put the back on and tested...no heat. Back to the website and I ordered the next likely part, the thermal fuse. A day later the part arrived and another 15 minutes later I was again testing the dryer...no heat. Back to the website and ordered the Thermal cutoff kit and cycling thermostat. They arrived the next day..in fact I just got done fixing the dryer. First I replaced the cycling thermostat, no go. Then I replaced the high limit thermostat, nothing, then the thermal cut off fuse, and voila, heat in the dryer. Always start with the last part you would replace (always the way). I spent around $100 including shipping and although others may have been able to find it sooner, I now have a new heating element as well as all the other heat related parts. I probably saved a few hundred dollars bringing in a technician to fix this. I would recommend Parts Select to anyone with this or other appliance issues. Great website for the experienced DIYer or novices. Thanks Parts Select!

went on-line to research the problem. found the site and listed the issue. agreed with the probability and ordered the part. it came in a few days. After I ordered the part I watched the short instructional video that was available from the site. the repair took about 10 minutes to pull out the dryer, remove the back, take off the old part and put on the new part - put the back on plugged it in and push it back then turned it on. DONE

Pulled front of dryer off then pulled the tub out. I replaced the idler pulley arm and put a new belt on. I had to prop the tub up to put the belt on and put everything on in the reverse order from taking it off. This was not that difficult to do. I saved alot of money doing this myself.

the only thing i do around the house is changing the light bulb, so when our dryer was not working and was about 5 years old, i was told it cost too much to repair and i am better of to get a new one so watched few clips on you tube and ordered the parts from partselect which came with instruction, i could not believe it spend about $100.00 and my dryer is working better than before. bottom line if i can do this anyone can.
