My 11 year old son and I ordered the parts we needed. Saw the GREAT easy installation video, It even was attached to my confirmation. After the parts got here him and I easily took off the old belt and clip, installed the new ones (after watching the viedo again) and we where done. You would have thought we fixed the space shuttle or something because we both smiled all day. My son also told every one that he and his mom fixed the dryer all by ourselves. Costed me only $40 dollars for the parts. I couldn't have even called a repair man out there for that. Thanks soo much.

Had a hard time at first trying to figure out how to place the pulley wheel that you place the belt around, it holds it in place so to speak, was getting very frustrated came upstairs went on line to your web site and lo & behold there was a video on how to do it, I watched that video (thanks Steve) and went back down cellar and had the belt on in less than 5 mins and everything is working fine. Thanks for all your help Dan

Belt on dryer drum broke

The repair on replacing the clothes dryer belt went great. Not only did Part Select send me the correct belt at a great price .. the helpful hints that other people gave was most helpful. The only glitch was when I was pushing the tensioner wheel to get the belt around the pulley it slipped and the spring came off. The instructions/tip of taking the drum out and how to replace it came in handy when I had to get the spring back into place. The belt finally went on but there was a slight twist in it by the tensioner wheel. Again the tip I got with my e-mail helped as I manually turned the drum and was able to right the belt. Kudos to the tips I received and the confidence I could do the job myself!!!!

Broken Door Catch

The Door Catch Kit had clear instructions for installation and included multiple replacement catches to fit several different sizes/varieties of dryers. I used a screwdriver to pry out the broken door catch, popped in the replacement, and was done! As usual, PartSelect had what I needed at a good price, with clear instructions for any needed installation. Fast shipping, too.
