You are trying to go clockwise? Those are left handed threads. Usually what Iíve found since itís corse threads a lot of build up from scum and soap harden basically making a loctite. I try taking the nut off then on and repeat different directions to break up that crud. Usually 15 F words and the fore mentioned works.

I like to use magnetron magnets and hook up a pulley to the lid and a rope and when you hear a click, count to 5 the lower the magnet down onto the valve and set a 5 minute timer as to know when to come back to do it again.

Usually what I do is take a propane torch and I melt the wheel so that it shrinks onto the shaft then mix up a batch of JB weld and stuff it in the square hole. If it vibrates just hit it with the torch and tweak it a bit.

You can get a nice motor from a Kirby vacuum and zip tie it to the mounts then wire it through a standard 15A/120vac luminary toggle switch and duct tape the switch to the side somewhere.

Just use a safety pin and clamp it around the spade connectors, wrap it with high temp foil tape and apply a jumper to L1 on the power block to reset it. Zip it up and make a sandwhich.

Iím sure you figured it out but in case you havenít you need security torx (harbor freight cheap sets) and take the front console off to get to lid screws.
It's dead. The light will come on inside but the control panel is unresponsive. If you push the power button it does nothing. I pulled the panel and looked for burnt traces like the older models would do but everything looks fine. Is there a thermal fuse that can kill the control panel (similar to the Whirlpool Duet)?

Dryer Repair / Re: Thermal fuse reset

The plastic covered thermal fuses and the metal tubular thermal fuses that have one wire coming out of each end contain a small blob of metal that melts at the temperature stamped on the fuse. These are not resettable no matter what you do, since the actual metal has melted, leaving a gap.

The high limit thermostats contain a bimetal disc. but I've never tried a reset because I'm not sure if it would trip correctly a second time and I don't want to test my liability insurance. 8-) It's not meant to be reset, so I don't.
