Multi Rib Belt - 92-1/4" – Part Number: 341241
$16.60
Multi Rib Belt - 92-1/4"
(13)
Fix Number FIX346995
Manufacturer Part Number 341241
This multi rib belt is an OEM replacement part for a dryer. It attaches to the drum, idler pulley, and motor pulley, and is responsible for spinning the drum. Over time, the belt can become frayed, brittle, and inflexible. If you can hear the motor running, but the drum does not turn, it is likely that the belt is broken. Other symptoms of a broken multi rib belt include unusual noises, failing to start, no heat, a burning smell, and an unresponsive touchpad. Depending on the model, you will find the belt by looking behind the front panel or under the main top of the dryer. This belt is 1/4-inches wide, has a length of 92-1/4-inches, and has four ridges and three groves on the belt. Each belt is sold separately.

Dryer Thermal Fuse – Part Number: WP3392519
$20.14
Dryer Thermal Fuse
(13)
Fix Number FIX11741460
Manufacturer Part Number WP3392519
The dryer thermal fuse, also sometimes referred to as the thermal cut off or temperature fuse, is a 2 by 1/2-inch, white, plastic safety mechanism that halts the flow of electricity to the motor circuit when a dryer overheats. If the fuse is missing or broken, your dryer will not start. A thermal fuse fails when the exhaust temperature exceeds the fuse rating, that is when the temperature rises above the temperature that the fuse is intended to manage. This can be caused by the heating element shorting, a regulating thermostat or thermistor failure, or with a partially restricted exhaust vent. The fuse attaches to the blower wheel housing. It must be replaced when there is no longer continuity between the terminals. This is a one-time fuse, meaning it cannot be re-set. The replacement part features two 3/16-inch terminals. While performing this repair, we recommend checking to make sure all vents are cleared and vacuumed. This OEM part is sold individually.

Door Catch Kit – Part Number: 279570
$6.32
Door Catch Kit
(8)
Fix Number FIX334230
Manufacturer Part Number 279570
This kit includes two door strikes, and three door catches, to service doors that have one or two catches. The strike is mounted on the body of the dryer, while the catch is mounted on the dryer door. These two parts work together to keep the dryer door shut while in operation. If your appliances lid will not close, or it will not start, it may be time to replace the door catch. If this part is malfunctioning, it should be replaced immediately, as it is not safe to run a dryer with the door not properly closed. This kit also comes with a set of instructions to help with the repair.

M Series New Style Coil Kit – Part Number: 279834
$28.24
M Series New Style Coil Kit
(1)
Fix Number FIX334310
Manufacturer Part Number 279834
This OEM kit comes with two ignition coils (one three-terminal boost/hold coil, and one two-terminal secondary coil). Usually only one of them burns out, but you should replace them as a set as both have to be operational for the gas valve to open. The primary purpose of the part is to open the gas valve and allow the gas to enter the burner. This is a safety mechanism to make sure that there is never an unsafe buildup of gas inside the appliance. You will find the coils attached to the dryer gas valve. This is not an uncommon repair; it can fail due to normal material fatigue over time. To test your current parts, watch the burner, and if the igniter glows for a while and then shuts off without the gas is igniting, it usually means one of these coils is bad.

Dryer Cycling Thermostat – Part Number: WP3387134
$27.19
Dryer Cycling Thermostat
(6)
Fix Number FIX11741405
Manufacturer Part Number WP3387134
This thermostat is an OEM replacement part for a dryer. It is sold individually. It measures approximately 2-inches by 1.5-inches, is black and silver, and constructed of plastic and metal material. You will find this part attached to the blower wheel housing. Cycling thermostats continually cycle the heating element off and on to maintain a constant inner temperature inside the dryer. This particular cycling thermostat will turn the heating element off once the temperature reaches 155F and cycles back on once the internal temperature drops by 25F. Do not forget to unplug the power to the dryer before you begin this repair. Keep in mind that you will need to pull the dryer out from the wall because this repair will need to be done from the back of the appliance with the back panel removed.

Dryer Drum Support Roller – Part Number: WPW10314173
$22.56
Dryer Drum Support Roller
Fix Number FIX11752609
Manufacturer Part Number WPW10314173
This drum support roller kit contains the parts needed to replace one roller on your dryer and is an OEM approved replacement part. This kit includes one drum roller and two bearings. Tri-rings are sold separately. The drum support roller holds the drum in position while it spins on the support wheels. Most dryers use two drum rollers, and it is recommended to change both at once to ensure proper drum rotation and even wear. A common symptom of a worn drum support roller is an unusually noisy dryer. This repair has been rated by customers as medium difficulty, and generally takes 30-60 minutes to complete. For your safety, you must disconnect the power, gas, and vent lines before you begin. For this repair you may need a nut driver, pliers, a screwdriver, and a wrench.

Idler Pulley Assembly – Part Number: WP691366
$18.32
Idler Pulley Assembly
(1)
Fix Number FIX11743765
Manufacturer Part Number WP691366
The idler pulley is found in your dryer and provides tension to the belt in order to rotate the drum. If your clothes are taking a long time to dry, the machine is noisy while operating, or the dryer will not start or tumble, there may be an issue with the idler pulley assembly. To replace this part, you will need to lift the top and remove the front panel of the dryer. You will want to take note of how the drum belt is positioned so it can be put back in place once the new idler pulley is in place. While you have the appliance opened up and accessible, you may want to consider replacing the drum belt at this time.

Roller Support Tri-Ring – Part Number: WPW10512946
$8.60
Roller Support Tri-Ring
Fix Number FIX11755850
Manufacturer Part Number WPW10512946
This small but mighty OEM piece is called a tri-ring and is used to support the drum roller shaft and the idler pulley shaft in your dryer. It helps to provide a tight seal between components by evenly distributing pressure. The part is triangular in shape, and less than an inch in size. Overtime it can become brittle or compressed, which can lead to a noisy tumbling cycle, or your dryer not tumbling at all. The tri-ring itself is simple to replace, simply slip off the damaged one and slip on the new. However, to access the drum roller or idler pulley, you will need to remove the front panel and drum of your dryer. This may require tools like a Phillips screwdriver, a quarter inch nut driver, putty knife, a small flat blade screwdriver, and a pair of needle nose pliers depending on your model. Ensure that the power is disconnected before beginning your repair.
