Hi, it’s Steve from Partselect. Today we’re
going to show you how to change the cycling thermostat on you dryer. It’s a pretty easy
job, all you need is a quarter inch nut driver and a pair of needle nose pliers. The very first thing that we need to do is
disconnect the power to the dryer. If it has a plug merely remove that from the socket.
If it’s a hard-wired dryer we need to find the source and disconnect the power there. The second thing that we need to do is remove
the dryer vent. We need to pull the appliance out because all of this repair is going to
be done from the back. Now we need to remove all of the screws holding
the back panel on. On this model there are nine quarter inch screws. With the back panel removed we now have access
to our cycling thermostat. The first step would be to remove the wires
and the one quarter inch hex-head screw that
holds the thermostat in place. The thermostat will pivot out of the hole. Take our new thermostat and press one tab
into the opening. Line up the other opening with the screw. Attach that and reconnect
our wires. The last thing we need to do is put our back
panel in place. That really was an easy repair, wasn’t it?
Good luck with your repair and thanks for watching.
