Turn off power. Remove two wires, remove two 1/4 screws and old part. Replace part and two screws, then place wires back and replace door. Be sure vent is clean of lint before operating dryer.

Not packaged properly for damage-free shipping
September 28, 2021

Part arrived in a plastic envelope which had obviously been smashed, bending the prongs on the switch & warping the base. Sears shipped a second one after I called to explain the damage. Second one arrived same as the first, in a plastic envelope with prong bent. In both instances plastic envelope was torn/ripped, as was the part's plastic bag, by the prongs tearing through during shipment. Contacted Sears to ship the part a third time & stressed for customer service to include a note to ship third part in a box, not an envelope. Waiting on 3rd part at this time. Sears, please provide better quality control to reduce appliance down-time.

Super Easy To Install
April 28, 2021

Most folks think it's usually the "guys" who repair appliances... but my dad was a mechanic for 50 yrs. and taught us girls as well as our brother to "fix" things. I just discovered Sears Parts Direct & LOVE them. This is the 2nd dryer I've restored back to working condition for less than $200. This thermostat is so simple & easy to replace, even a gal 62 yrs old can handle it with ease. Thanks Sears Parts Direct. :-)

I was happy to order the quality parts and repair the dryer. All turned out well, but I still miss our local Sears store.

Troubleshooting document made available by Sears was invaluable in identifying the failed part. The new part worked perfectly and this dryer is 30 years old!
