Dryer blew cold air.
PartSelect is great for providing parts as requested. Unfortunately, neither of the 2 parts I ordered were on my machine. My bad for not looking at the actual part instead of the description. A word to the wise!

It was taking alomost twice as long for a load of clothes to dry.
First I had to take the back cover off. I removed the heating element and the thermostat and replaced them with the new repairs. It was relatively simple---any handiman could do it and would not require a repairman. We talked to a salesman at Sears to see what they thought the problem could be and then got on the internet. The best part was that the repairs came within a few days of placing my order. That was super!!!
Thank you for your fast response.

no heat
Frist I looked on Parts Select site at there diagrams to figure out where the heating element was . After that it was easy to remove the back panel and expose the heating element box.The screw holding the element is a little hard to get too , but still easy to remove.You have to pull the box out a little to slide the element out. the only thing I did wrong was not buy both thermostates at the same time,and I had to spend a little more because the one part is not sold by itself. Over all a breeze

Dryer would not heat during cycle.
I followed the video offered by your website and it was very informative and right to the point. Was very brief and easy to follow. I ordered the parts before 10:00am and received the parts the next day with the regular shipping.Very good website others need to benchmark you. I will use your service for future repairs and refer you to others.

Taking 90 minutes + to dry one load
Removed the back of the dryer about 8 screws. Removed the Thermostat 250 F and replaced with new. Dries a load of clothes in one cycle on medium. Not bad for a 16 dollar part. I am a computer tech and I am used to taking computers a part but I think most people that are in anyway mechanically inclined and can look at a diagram could do this and save yourself a lot of money.

Dryer not producing any heat
Removed rear panel after disconnecting the Power.Disconnected the fuse ,thermostat 250f, and replaced them. Then removed the old heater and installaled the new one. Then plugged in the heater and still no heat..So I have decided to replace cycling thermostat and temperature switch,which I ordered yesterday. These are the last two items that you suggest as being a cause.

Element not heating up.
Opened access door, noticed main power wire to heating element was partially melted. This was caused by a bad connection to the drying element, loose. Removed heating element assembly. Cut bad section of wire and added new connection. While doing this the thermostats plastic casing cap came off ! Probably due to exessive heat / resistance from the bad connection. This confirmed why there was no heat. Intalled new thermostat and and am now good to go !

Dryer would not turn on
I am really not sure because my husband did the repair and it took him no time at all. I know he removed the back panel on the dryer, and the 2 parts were in plain site. He took the old off put on the new part. We turned the dryer on and it worked better than ever! This site is the best for home repairs. My husband was a little leary but we didn't want to buy a new dryer and we live in a remote area with no repair people, so for the low cost of these parts it was well worth it! Will diffently use this site again!!!!!!!!!!
