Very Easy 1/5
Time of repair:
15 - 30 minutes
socket & or nut drivers
Russ , NY
After replacing all sensors & heating coil on the lower rear of the dryer (behind the rear panel)I still had heat once in a while but never enough. I decided to replace the selector dial that triggers all other parts that I had already replaced.
My Repair & Advice:
First thing disconnect power to the dryer. Remove the top rear panel of the dryer using a nut driver or socket (6 screws in all). Once the panel is removed there are 2 more screws like the other 6 removed on the timer/regulator located to the right if your facing the rear of the dryer. After removing the timer from the front panel unplug all 3 electrical connections to completely remove the timer. No need to take pictures or note which plug goes where, they have there own unique plug so you can't possibly reconnect them wrong. Install the new piece in the reverse order that I listed in this install breakdown. This was my problem solver, the dryer now produces heat as if it were new again.
