Part description

The cycling thermostat with internal bias heater will continually cycle the heating element off and on to maintain a constant inner temperature in the dryer. This cycling thermostat has a limit of 155 degrees Fahrenheit and a differential of 25 degrees. Meaning that the heating element will cut out at 155 degrees and cycle back on once the internal temperature drops by 25 degrees. This is a genuine OEM part. Please remember to disconnect the power to the dryer before starting the repair.

Dryer not heating
Checked the heating element and found a break in the heating coil. Decided to change the thermal fuse and the the cycling thermostat because of the age of the dryer.

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.

Dryer ran but did not dry clothing.
Best site I have ever used for repairs. First a list of what parts were needed was provided right from the start, no guessing. I followed all of the video's provided for installation instructions and and that was it. Very easy to make repairs and almost rebuilt my dated dryer to like new condition. Appliance was in very good physical condition just needed new components to bring it back. Highly recommend this site to anyone who can turn a wrench.

Dryer would not turn off at the end of the timer cycle
Unlike the video related to the Cycle Thermostat, I had to remove the control panel, top, front and drum to access the part. I might have been able to access it from the lower front panel but given the age I was really happy I took it apart and cleaned all the link out. I found other videos on YouTube to help me take it apart. It works perfect now and it is much much quieter. Not sure what I did to quiet it down, but everyone including the cat is happy!

Our Whirlpool dryer had stopped beating.
I initially thought to replace the heater element, however the website gave me a list of the possible issues, with the probability ratings conveniently listed next to the part numbers. Not knowing exactly which part was needed I decided to replace all three just to be on the safe side. The parts arrived quickly (about five days) and the installation was easy and straightforward. Total cost for this project was about $50 bucks, which sure beats buying a brand new dryer.

The dryer gradually lost heat over e period of a few months until it was not heating at all.
Having no clue or diagnostic tools I used the symptoms to diagnose the problem. Since the parts were relatively inexpensive I ordered those parts I thought would be most likely at fault. I opened up the back of the dryer and discovered a wire had worked itself loose from a sensor. I plugged the wire back in and now the dryer works fine. I'm keeping the parts for the time I will need them.

Dryer ran, heated got to temp but would not heat again
Took off back panel of dryer and be removed old thermostat and thermal fuse. Replaced with the new one and wired up by transferring one wire at a time. Took apart top and front of dryer to get to coil valve. Replaced with new ones. Repair person would have posted 150 to diagnose and additional 50 per part got all three parts shipped for 50 so did it myself and saved at least 250.

Timer would not advance. Would run only in timed dry cycle. But even then would not heat air. Timer would advance in the timed dry cycle.
I ran a complete electrical system check of every component accessible from the rear or top of the dryer. (this dryer has no front access panel). Every component checked ok. I dreaded the thought of having to remove the drum. I went on your web site and watched your tech remove a drum. Nothing to it !. I had the drum out in 5 minutes. I read one of the customer reports about an "open' coil on the gas valve. I checked the coils. The three wire coil had an open circuit. I ordered new coils from PartSelect. as long as it was apart I replaced the Igniter and the drive belt even though both were still working. The dryer works just like it did 25 years ago.

No heat
Cost was $114.00 to replace all parts , It took longer to take apart & test everything than it did to do the repair ! I tested all parts twice , everything would test fine , I put it all back together and the dryer worked for 5 minutes , did that twice and decided to order all the parts an be done with it . Ordered the parts , that showed up at my door in 2 days !!! Turned OFF gas , took off vent hose , took back off with 8 screws , popped up top in the front , took 2 screws off the top in the back removing the brackets , Inside the front under the top removed 2 screws holding on the front , lifted the front and removed . All parts only have 1 or 2 screws holding them in place , removed 1 part at a time , removing and replacing 1 wire from old part to the new part so I did not mix up the wires , replace the part and go to the next part . It was pretty self explanatory replacing the parts , It took 20 minutes to take apart , replace the parts and put back together so my loving wife could do laundry again. You don't realize what a inconvenience it is to go without a dryer for 3 days when you have had one for 37 yrs ..... THANK YOU , 3 days can seem like forever when someone is not happy , but it was much much better than waiting 7 to 10 days for the wrong parts from somewhere else . You have the BEST parts website that I have EVER used !!! THANK YOU AGAIN , Donald

Dryer would heat briefly (about 5minutes) then no heat and timer would not advance. Repairman checked it out and couldn't find the problem
(1) Unplugged power and turned gas valve off. (2) Scooted the dryer out from the wall as far as I could without disconnecting the gas line (the connections were too tight to break loose, anyway.). (3) At the back, disconnected exhaust hose at the dryer (spring clamp). (4) Using a 1/4" nut driver (1/4 " socket, 1/4" open or box end wrench, or adjustable wrench will do the job, too) removed ten screws holding the back panel in place and set the panel aside. (5) The Thermal fuse is just above the internal bias thermostat to the left of the dryer exhaust. The high limit thermostat is just to the right of them (all where the diagram show them to be). Starting with the thermal fuse, remove the wires and plug them onto the new thermal fuse in the same order. Unscrew the 1/4" screw, remove the thermal fuse an replace it with the new unit. (6) Repeat the process with the internal bias thermostat and the high limit thermostat. Replace the back panel, secure the exhaust hose and plug in power. I believe that PartSelect has a video of the process, Repair Clinic also has a You Tube video of the process. Watch the video it is easy and makes sense. Unfortunately, replacing the thermal fuse, internal bias thermostat, and high limit thermostat did not fix the problem -- still no heat and timer didn't advance. Went on-line looking for more information and determined that the likely cause was faulty coil on the burner assembly. Ordered the coil kit ( two coils). -- Another week at the laundromat, PartSelect does not have a video for replacing the coils and I found the user instructions hard to visualize. Repair Clinic has an easy to follow You Tube video of the process. (1) Unplug power -- everything else is done from the front. (2) Remove lint trap and remove the two Phillips screws securing the lint trap assembly to the top of the dryer. (3) Insert a stiff putty knife or screw driver under the front lip of the dryer top near the corners and lift the top up and back. (3) disconnect the door switch, near the top on the right hand side. I was unable to separate the connector and instead, removed the door switch (inside the door on the frame, two small Phillips screws secure it). (4) Using nut driver, remove two 3/8" screws holding the front panel in place (top front corners) and lift the front panel up and off. (5) Two coils are located bottom left hand side below the drum. Two Phillips screws hold the coils in place. To remove the holder, you'll need a stubby Phillips screw driver because there isn't much clearance below the drum. (6) Unplug the coils, lift them off replace new coils, plug them in. Secure the holder with two Phillips.screws. (7) Install the front panel. Two clips, one on either side near the bottom. Make sure the drum securely fits around the felt around the door on the front panel. (8) Re-fit the two 3/8" holding the front panel in place. (8) Hook up door switch. (9) drop top panel securely into place. (9) Plug in power. Replacing the coils fixed the problem. I tested the old coils with an ohm meter after removing them. Both tested good. Apparently one or both of them were breaking down under load, which is why the repairman couldn't isolate the problem. .

Clothes were not dry after cycle finished
Viewed the installation videos/instructions already available for each part ahead of time. Pretty simple remove/replace process for each item. Clothes are completely dry in one cycle, even on the "Energy Preferred" setting. Also ordered the maintenance kit to replace the belt and drum rollers. My 12 year old dryer is like new again!
