    I turn the power on the dryer and everything lights up and i press the start button and it doesn’t start. What can i do.
    For model number WED8300SB1
    Hello Mary Ann, thank you for inquiring. You will want to consider replacing either the Thermal Fuse, part number PS11741460, or the Door Catch, part number PS334230 for your model dryer to fix this. You can test the continuity of the Thermal Fuse with a multimeter. If you receive a reading other than zero or infinity, there is no continuity and the Thermal Fuse will need to be replaced. Good luck with your repair!

      Keep searches simple. Use keywords, e.g. "leaking", "pump", "broken" or "fit".
      Dryer was working, but no heat.
      First I unplugged the dryer, then removed the back panel, this exposed most all of the wiring and I could see the heater coils.
      Not knowing what the problem was I started looking at the coils and could not see any broken parts.
      So then checked the thermal fuse for continuity I removed the two wires from it with a small pair of needle nose pliers, it was held in place by two screws, once they were removed the fuse came out easily, I checked continuity with a volt meter placing the meter on X1 Ohms and could not get a reading.
      I replaced with a new one and put it all back together the way I took it apart.
      Then I plugged it in and it worked first time, I now have warm dry clothes.

      No heat but would run otherwise
      Cleaning the lint out of the whole machine took quite a bit of time--it was everywhere. Underneath the lint trap was a collection that ultimately ruined the thermal fuse where it restricted the air flow considerably.

      Ascertaining the problem was the most time consuming part.

      The actual repair was quite simple and didn't take but 15-20 minutes.

      Door Catch part had fallen out,/ was missing
      Received your parts, Popped them both right into place, Even though only one side needed to be replaced, I wanted them to match up. It was amazing how easy this was. My husband was quite impressed I had ordered these rather then look for either a new or used dryer from some other source.
