I wook with tools on my job so I thought I might be able to complete this repair. I viewed the repair video on Partselect's web site and dicided to "GO FOR IT" (after all the dryer was already broke). The dryer noise had to be a moving part so I ordered two drum support rollers, one idler pulley wheel and one belt. If I was going to open the unit up I decided I would not leave an old moving part only to have trouble later. The total parts were less then fifty dollars, so if this did not fix it I would not be out a bundle that could have been applied on a new unit. I was not willing to invest more in the aging unit (ex: motor). The parts arrived in less then three working days. The dryer in the video was a differnt model then mine so I had difficulty removing the front. After the actual repairs got started I had it back together in about two hours. I believe one of the Drum support rollers was the problem I could not reproduce the noise by hand during repairs so I was not sure that was the problem. But one of the drum rollors was not turning as free as the other and niether of them turned as well as the new ones. I marked the wires as instructed in the video for easy replacement. My repair time maybe longer then most as I did this repair on my own. After restoring the power and pushing the start button the noise was gone :) making the dryer a much quieter unit.
