Absolutely no help

"I'm a parts expert. I'm sure these are the parts you need." Your expert was dead wrong. The part was not defective in my appliance and the appliance still doesn't work. He said he was sending the kit but only the thermal cutout was shipped. Now I have to haggle to get credit for the wrong part.

It came on time but it was not what I wanted. And now I'm having a heck of a hard time sending it back.

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 seal is so simple & easy to replace, even a gal 62 yrs old can handle it with ease. Thanks Sears Parts Direct. :-)
