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.

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.

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.

Dryer was shutting down before clothes were dry

Removed the back panel. The fuse and the thermostat were right there. One screw on the fuse and 2 wires, 2 screws on the thermostat and four wires. Very simple and easy job. Dryer works perfectly now.

Gas dryer not heating.

I removed the back of the dryer. I used a multi meter to test the thermostat and the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse was bad. I had ordered the thermostat and new style coil. The thermal fuse was obsolete. Not available. I went to my local hardware store that still has appliance parts and purchased the thermal fuse. I replaced the fuse and the dryer started working. I did direct the dryer vent hose a different way to let it vent better and get the heat away from the dryer better. I still installed the thermostat because I had it and it was easy to do.

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!
