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.

Would not turn on.

According to multiple sources on the internet, there are two fuses that commonly cause this problem. I checked the continuity of both and found my thermal fuse had gone out. Replacing was as simple as opening the back of the dryer and unplugging the old fuse and plugging the new one in (this was disconnected from wall power obviously).

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 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.
