I went out on a limb and checked the heating element. I removed the back panel removed the heating element and ordered a new part from your website. When I received your product I installed it the same way I had removed the old one. Piece of cake. Knock on Wood my dryer runs fine. Hopefully that was the problem. If not I will be revisiting your website to purchase whatever else I need. Thanks......

It was simple. Originally, (just like a man) I took the door apart and removed from behind. THEN I WATCHED THE REPAIR VIDEO!!! Boy did I feel like a dummy. The repair was simple and easy. Putty knife popped the latch out and popped a new one in. Got a couple of extras for future issues. Both latches had failed previously, oddly, only 1 is actually used. Oh well, repair done, bride happy, all is well. Thanks Parts Select. Moral of the story, WATCH THE REPAIR VIDEO FIRST!!!!!!!!

Watching videos on the internet, I learned how to test the parts of the dryer. I learned that the thermal fuse was the problem. I ordered the part and it arrived in a few days. I changed out the part, put the dryer back together, and it worked! Saved me a great deal of money!

Shipping from this site was quick. Use a 1/4" nutdriver to remove the sheet metal screws securing the back panel of the dryer. Removal of the element is easy once you look closely at the fastening system used. Have a vacuum hose handy to remove all lint while you have the back off.

Dryer would not start

My dryer is a KitchenAid KEYE660W (electric). I tried to start the dryer but it would not run. I did notice that if I held the start button down, I could feel light vibrations through the button. Searched through Yahoo and this site and determined that this is often a bad Thermal Fuse. Used the diagrams on this site to locate where it should be, removed the back of the dryer with a screwdriver, removed the two wires clipped to the Thermal Fuse and unscrewed the Thermal Fuse. I had a friend test the fuse with a Multimeter. It was bad so I ordered another one on this site and it arrived in two days. Screwed the Thermal Fuse back in and clipped the two wires back on. Started the dryer and it worked!!! Replaced the back of the dryer. This repair took 15 minutes MAX and taught me a little bit about Mulitmeters.

I'm a 68 year old single lady who watched the video and just followed the instructions. Took the back off, tested all the parts involved with heating and the only part that didn't have any continuity was the top part of the thermal cutoff fuse. After receiving the part I removed the old one, put the new one in, put the back on and turned the dryer on. It heated right up. I also had a part that I didn't need and your return dept. made it very easy to return. I love this site. Save me a ton of money.

The dryer sounded like a herd of buffalos running by.

  • Customer: Patrick from Bettendorf, IA
  • Difficulty: Easy

I needed to replace our drum support rollers - one was completely worn out and wobbling (the buffalo herd noise) the other wasn't too bad, but for an older dryer(15+ years) I figured it was time to replace both wheels. I ordered the maintenance kit that also included the Idler Pulley and drum belt. I spent most of my time with the vacuum since there was a lot of dust accumulated inside the dryer. (I recoverd $1.83 in coins!) The instructions that came with the kit were very helpful for this repair. Plus, there were some online videos that heled as well. Once I had everything apart I noticed the plastic bearing ring on the drum's front was nearly worn out so I quickly ordered this from PartSelect and it arrived quicly in two days - this took only 10 minutes to replace.

I watched a video on youtube about how to install a dryer heaing element, took pictures of the wires on my cell phone, then just installed the new part. Plugged it back in and works like a charm!

Took two cycles to dry

  • Customer: Jason from North Little Rock, AR

Very easy to repair the heating element. I took the back off and half of it was burnt out (twice as long to dry). Replaced it and works like new. The instructional videos are great. I've replaced my water pump on my dishwasher also. Once again, instructional videos are great. I put trust in this website and their parts. I wouldn't have any worries about this site. Overall satisfaction A+.
