The dryer would come on but not tumble and then shut itself off. I called a repair man, who came out after a $45 visit and said the motor needs to be replaced. He said it would be $200 plus the service call of $45. I told him no thanks but still had to pay him the $45 service call fee. The name of the company I called was Cook Appliance Repair out of Louisville Kentucky. I then did a Google search on locating a company that I could order the motor from and found Part Select to be very reasonable. The new motor was $79. I went ahead and ordered the maintainience kit that included the belt, the two rollers with clips and the spring loaded roller. The clips were a little difficult to remove and put back on the motor. The videos on Part Select did help and I would recommend watching them prior to replacing parts on any appliance. I am glad Part Select had the repair videos and think that is going above and beyond by offering these videos. The delivery time was quick. I ordered on a Saturday and received the parts on Wednesday with the standard cheapest shipping. I am very pleased with the parts and Part Select and would definitely recommend Part Select and will use again on my next repair. Total spent including shipping was about $114.60. My dryer is now fixed and working great. Thanks Part Select.
