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.

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.

This is an authentic drum support roller kit for 29-inch-wide dryers. It includes 1 belt, 2 roller wheels and an idler pulley. The parts in this kit allow the dryer to tumble properly by supporting the drum cylinder. The idler pulley provides the tension needed for a multi-ribbed belt. The belt attaches to the drum, idler pulley, and motor pulley. If these parts are damaged, it could cause loud noises such as squeaking and squealing while the drum is turning. These are normal wear parts and are best replaced as a kit to ensure optimal performance.

Sourced directly from the manufacturer, this heating element is an OEM approved replacement part for a variety of dryers and is sold individually. It measures approximately 10.5 inches long, 7.5 inches wide and 2 inches deep. The heating element is the primary source of heat used to dry the clothes in your dryer. This heating element is strung with a coiled wire made of a nickel and chrome alloy. It may need to be replaced if your dryer does not produce heat, if it produces too much heat, or if it will not turn on. If your dryer does not heat, first check for a blown thermal fuse on the blower housing before replacing the heating element. In most cases, the heating element will have a break in the element, making it defective. For this repair you will need a quarter inch nut driver and a pair of needle nose pliers. Start this repair by disconnecting the power and then remove the dryer vent. This repair is done from the back of the appliance with the back panel removed. With the panel removed, this will give you access to the heater element. Your next step is to remove the high-limit thermostat from the housing and remove the two wires from the heater terminals. Now remove the screws securing the element to the housing and slide the element out. Installation of the new part is done in the reverse order.

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.

This is a rear drum support roller kit for your dryer. The 2 rollers come with 4 tri-rings, and 1 palnut. We recommend that you replace both rollers at once. This kit stabilizes the drum cylinder, while letting the drum rotate on the support rollers. If you are having problems with your appliance during tumble mode, or if it is too noisy, you will need this kit. To complete this repair you will need a putty knife, Philips screwdriver and a 5/16 nut driver.

This OEM dryer door switch is an on/off mechanism that detects when the door is open to prevent the dryer from operating. If your dryer will turn on but will not start or continues working while the door is open, you may have a faulty door switch. This part features the switch and three wires, is white in color, and measures 6.5 inches long. This switch replaces the two-wire switch that is on many models. You will find this part attached to the inside of the top end of the front panel. One end attaches to the wiring harness and the other goes through the panel to make contact with the door when the door is closed. This is a regular wear part due to such frequent use or continuous harsh handling. Depending on how the switch broke, it might make it impossible to start or stop your drying cycle. You can test the function of this part by pushing on the black tab that sticks out of the front panel to make contact with the dryer door. If there is no resistance in the tab and it does not make a clicking sound, it likely needs to be replaced.

This thermal cut-off kit is for a dryer and is sourced directly from the manufacturer. The thermal cut-off is a safety mechanism that is designed to trip if your dryer is at risk of overheating, to prevent further damage. It may need to be replaced if your washer is no longer heating properly. This is a one-time fuse, meaning if it trips, it needs to be replaced immediately. A common reason for this part to fail is if the heater housing is not receiving proper airflow, normally caused by an obstruction in the exhaust vent, a clogged lint screen, or a broken blower wheel. This kit includes 1 high-limit thermostat with a limit of 250 degrees Fahrenheit, 1 thermal cut-off fuse with a limit of 309 degrees Fahrenheit, jumper wires and new female spade terminals. These components are attached to the heater housing.

Not getting hot enough, eventually no heat
I ordered the parts I thought may be the problem. If you watch any of the videos to help with a repair most of the video time is spent taking off and putting on the back panel. That being said once the panel was off it took me maybe 20 minutes to install the 4 parts I had ordered. Could have gone faster but also had 3 kids ages 2 and up to work around. This web site not only helps you trouble shoot but then gives discounts for the parts needed and helps with the repair through videos. Obviously the objective was to help customers from start to finish and I believe they achieved just that. Will use this site in the future and tell others about it as well. My instructions are to watch their video to do the repair. Don't rush or get anxious just focus on your task. My wife said the dryer works like new now. Read more...

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.

Dryer would run, but not heat
Needed it running quick, so no diagnostics. Ordered one of everything that could fix problem (plus a new door catch). Tipped it onto it's back & popped the bottom cover off. Element, thermal cutoff, thermistor, and fuse. were right in front and held by 2 screws each (don't drop them, don't ask). A little bit tight inside, but no big issue. vacuumed the inside, replaced everything (it was the Heating Element, by the way), slapped the cover on, and put it back in its spot. works like it was new. Yes, I unplugged it first. Remember! Safety Third! Read more...

This is a manufacturer-approved high-limit thermostat for your dryer. This part includes one high limit thermostat with a terminal extension arm. It is a safety mechanism that prevents your dryer from overheating. Once the temperature reaches 221 degrees Fahrenheit, this element will shut down power to the heating element until it decreases to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. If this part is faulty, your dryer may not heat. You will find this part located underneath the dryer vent behind the appliance. The terminal extension arm connects to the heater element terminal. The high limit thermostat can be tested with a multimeter. It should be tested while it is at room temperature, and will need to be replaced if the reading determines it is faulty.
