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.

First unplug the unit. Take the lint filter out and remove the two Phillips-head screws at the edge of the opening. Then using the putty knife to unlatch the top panel of the dryer, insert it into the seam on the front about 3" from each side. When you feel the knife up-against the latch, apply a little inward pressure with the knife and pull up on the top panel. When you release both sides the panel, it will lift up and back against the wall(secure it so it doesn't fall forward while you are doing this repair). Looking down on the right-front corner you will find a connection for the door switch, Dis-connect it. Just below that connection, on the inside, is a 5/16" screw that holds the front panel on, take that one and another one just like it on the left side, out and the front will fall forward about an inch and then you will lift up on the panel while holding drum in place. Inspect the clips that hold the bottom of the panel on and be aware how the panel attaches to them. Try to keep the drum in place and set the front panel off to the side so you can easily grab it to put it back on. Looking under the drum remove the belt and idler pulley. The pulley is usually not in the position it should be in, it likes to fall over when it has no belt pressure on it. Hopefully you had already unpackaged the new belt and straightened it out. Loop the belt over the drum, rib side to the drum, and move it to where the old belt had been riding on the drum. Back under the drum, you should hold it in place with your shoulder, with idler pulley in hand-- install the idler pulley. There's probable a clean spot where the old one was and the humpback should point to the right side of the dryer. With right hand steadying the idler pulley, the left hand should pinch the belt together and feed it under the wheel and pull it out and hook it on the motor pulley. It may seem to be a tight fit but once its on you should be able grab the outside edge of the drum and slowly turn it without hearing any scraping noises. Double check that the belt isn't twisted. Before putting the front panel back on or if you had to take the drum out, make sure the felt seal on the back edge of the drum is not folded inward. the wheels that the drum roll on must be in the groove. Carefully reach to the back to check that they are in the groove of the drum. If everything seems to be in place, hold the drum with one hand and grab the front panel with other. Place the bottom of the panel against the unit and lift up about an inch and place the square holes at the bottom of the panel on the clips on the unit, it may take a couple of tries, then lean the panel forward making sure the drum goes around the felt seal on the panel. Once the panel is against the unit , install the two 5/16 screws securing the front panel to the unit. Turn the drum by hand to make sure drum was installed properly. Reconnect door switch. Lower top panel and push down to secure it. Install the two Phillips head screws at the edge of where the lint screen goes, install lent screen and plug the unit back into the wall socket.

I watch and followed the three viedos that PartSelect emailed me and had a very easy repair job.

loud squealing when running

  • Customer: Michael from Easton, MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I followed the video provided by PartSelect. It pretty much went exactly like the video said it would. I was pretty sure the belt or idler pully must be the culprit, but I didn't even know how to open the thing up until I saw your video. I would likely still be putting up with the squealing without that video. Now the dryer is nice and quiet. -Mike

the lint chute assembly had corroded & would not accept the lint screen.

  • Customer: Richard from Paramount, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench (Adjustable)

I pulled thee dryer out from the wall, shut off the gas & disconnected the gas line & the air vent, I then removed the fasteners from the upper end of the lint chute assembly (accessible from the top of the machine). I then tipped the machine over on to its front side making the back fully accessible. After removing the back cover, I removed the remaining fasteners holding the lint chute assembly in place & removed the part. I then removed the assembly only to find that the seals were not included in the package even though I had specifically asked about the seal when I called in & place my order. The response to my question was " seals are included that is why it is called an assembly." The end result was that I had to use alternate material & fabricate my own seals in order to complete the installation. As a result a repair which should have taken no more that 30 minutes, took over two hours.

Dryer wouldn't start... Just a hum when you press the start button.

Well it took me longer to get the dryer apart and than it did to get it back together... Well I opened it up it was obvious I had burned up the motor you couldn't even see it for all the lint that was built up around it... And the hardest part was removing the fan from the motor shaft, I didn't realize it was plastic and sort of mangled it getting it off so I went ahead and replaced it as well. The hardest part of the whole repair was removing and replacing the clips that hold the motor in place and there didn't seem to be any trick to it, I used a pair of channel locks and a little muscle to get them off and back on everything else was a breeze! I recommend checking the exhaust pipe at least once a year to make sure air is flowing freely to prevent the lint build up inside and even more often if you have a long run. This should prevent having this problem again...

I had purchased a motor for the dryer first. The blower wheel broke while I was trying to take the motor off from the blower wheel. Installing the new wheel was fairly easy once I took the blower cover of at the back of the dryer and literally brake the wheel of the motor shaft.

i had difficult time getting wheel off.
