    Unit works on timed dry. Does not heat on sensor dry. Do i need a moisture sensor.
    For model number 110.86582110
    Hello Art, thank you for your question. The moisture sensor would be the first part I would suggest replacing. A functioning moisture sensor is imperative for the sensor dry setting to work properly. I hope this helps!

    I put a new belt on my drum but was unsure of the wiring pattern to reattach the wires. Dryer ran great for a few minutes then stopped. Would not restart.

        Motor tried, but could not turn drum
        First, I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall. Then I pryed the front of the top up. It is scary to apply that much force, but the clips did not break. It opens like a car hood. Then I removed the two sheet metal screws that hold the front to the sides. Don't forget to unplug and unclip the door switch wires. Then I lifted the front off the bottom clips. Be sure to hold the drum up when you do this. Three hands will make it easier. Then remove the drum and belt. The belt tensioner will fall off, but that is ok.

        I thought the problem would turn out to be the motor, but instead it was the front seal for the drum. It is felt and had broken. It folded under itself and was jamming the drum to the point that the motor couldn't turn it.

        I replaced the felt seal, which attaches to the front cover with three clips and also replaced the plastic guides, which clip to the drum. Both were easy to do. I had replaced the rear drum seal a few years ago and so it was ok, otherwise I would recommend doing that too.

        While I had it apart, I opened up the back and cleaned out all the lint in the fan housing. I had replaced the heater element, thermal switch and fuse a few years ago, so they were fine.

        I also replaced the mosture sensor, just because it only cost $11. I bought a new lint filter, because it had holes in it after 20 years. I replaced the belt, because it was only $10. I replaced the lint filter cover and front door handle, because they had yellowed. I will warn you about the front door handle. It was a bear. I finally had to take the door apart to get the little plastic clip to seat correctly.

        Then I put it all back together, which again is easier with 3 hands. Holding up the drum and putting the front cover on the lower clips can be a bit tricky alone. Also, be sure to rotate the drum to make sure the rear seal is not folded under and the front seal is seated correclty.

        I fired it up and it ran great, except for the constant whistling. I had wondered what the little clear plastic box in the back did. Turns out it is the lint filter is full whistle warning thing. I took the back off again and found a wire was resting on the flapper door of the box and holding it in the wrong postion. By the way, it is a really irritating sound after the first few minutes. I moved the wire and it works great.

        I worked slowly and it went well and was not hard.

        Auto Dry Sensor Failed
        Really simple, the dryer repair guy I had out did not have the part and wanted $100 to fix. Did it myself quickly and easily and the dryer is working like a charm.

        Moisture sensor dislodged
        From the front, taped part in place and then assembled springs and insulator from the rear. Difficulty occurred with access to the back of the sensor due to the air duct interference. The sharp edges of the sheet metal parts increases the risk of cuts. First shipment was missing the second electrode but Part Select immediately replaced the shipment. My experience has to be considered Excellent and I would go to Part Select first for my next order.

        Dryer was working erratically.
        I followed the YouTube video. Took the back panel off, took the lint thing off and proceeded as indicated in the video excerpt I didn't take the top off.
