I watched the part select you tube video that links specific loud dryer noises to specific broken or loose parts. It allowed me to identify the part I needed, which I ordered through their website. Two days later, I had the part and installed it, with help from another online video that showed me how to take the dryer apart to install the drum support roller. Thank you, the information provided made the repair quite easy. It works perfectly now!

I unplugged the dryer then removed 2 Phillips screws from lint trap. Then I popped the top up on each top corner with a screwdriver. I removed the 2 screws holding the front cover. I unclipped the wiring connection and moved the panel. I took out the old belt, put the tensioned back on then put the new belt around the drum and held the drum up with my shoulder then put the belt through the tensioner and put it on the motor spindle by pushing the tensioner back. I put it back together and it worked perfectly. Your video was very helpful. Job was very easy.

Had my wife call the repair man. Since it was Saturday afternoon, no luck. YouTube help me diagnose the problem. I found that the drum belt slipped off the idler pulley assembly and the assembly was laying on the floor. I noticed that the belt was frayed and was probably stretched out which may be why the belt slipped off in the first place. I glued the frayed pieces of the belt back with gorilla glue and clamps. You Tube helped me mount the idler pulley assembly and string the belt correctly. I then ordered the replacement parts through your website. The parts came to my home in a few days and I will fix the dryer properly when I get a chance.

I didn't have to remove the entire door...I just removed the screws with the door open, used a needle nose plier to remove the plastic insert..stuck the new one in. Then I replaced the metal portion by popping it out and inserting the new one. Easy

The door would pop open and the catch was broken

  • Customer: Janice from Syracuse, IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

When I got the door catch, I held it in a pair of pliers and pushed it right into place. The door would still pop open. After awhile, I realized that the door was bent, probably by a small child climbing up on it. I had to loosen some of the screws that held the door on in order to relieve the tension in the door so that it would stay closed. As long as it continues to work, I won't worry about replacing the door. It's in a rental house anyway.

I got my kit and when I opened it the exact parts were there!! I am a older woman and was a little worried that I could do it. I took the pliers and pulled the old latch catch out and 1-2-3 walah!! It was so unbelievably easy. If I can do it anyone can. Thank you for saving me hundreds of $s on a new dryer.
