Followed general instructions from your you-tube video. It was much easier than expected. We didn't know if it was belt or rollers, turned out to be roller, but since we bought both we replaced both.

We found great video instructions via youtube.com to give us an idea to what might be the problem even before we opened the dryer. Then we opened the dryer top and front door and then removed the belt and drum. We then saw that one of the drum wheels was worn and the rubber part of the wheel was warped off. Once we saw what part we needed we ordered them through PartSelect.com since their wonderful instructions helped us out. Once we received the part we easily removed the old drum wheels and installed the new ones...super easy! Then we had to put the drum back in with the belt. The only "difficult" part was looping the belt around the motor because there was a lot of tension. Once that was set we just put the door back on and then the top! I guess the only snags we had during the process was where exactly to remove screws or pry open certain places b/c every dryer is a little different. I just advice people to really look at their dryer and think about how it is held together instead of just unscrewing everything. We are so glad we found the partselect.com instructions via YouTube.com. We were ready to buy a new dryer but fixing the dryer ended up only costing us $30! Our dryer is so quiet now, just like it is brand new.

By following the repair video available, I took off the top and front panel of my dryer, removed the drum, removed the old drum support rollers, vacuumed out the inside of the dryer (so much lint!), replaced the drum support rollers, and put the dryer back together. Dryer runs like brand new and is very quiet. Repair was extremely easy to do. Got the replacement parts in about 2 business days. PartSelect repair videos make the repair easy too! Lots of satisfaction for a girl to repair her own dryer!

Took back panel off raised and removed the top lid w/o taking any wires off. One electrical plug on top had to be unplug, two screws holding the front cover removed. Front cover came off. Removed the belt then removed the drum. Once the drum was out it was RR the rollers. I put A dab of grease on the little shafts. I should have replaced the idler pulley. But oh well. It was still ok. Put on the new belt and reversed the procedure.And now no more thump, thump. It took alittle long because I vacuumed everything in the back and underneath. no spare parts left

layed the dryer door side down, took 6 nuts off back metal panel, then took the bolt off at bottom and reached in and pulled drum support rod loose, removed old roller, installed new roller, reached in set drum support rod back into hole where the threads were showing on the outside where the nut was then put back on and tightened back up, put a pair of vicegrips underneath on rod to hold in place while tightening up nut,placed cover panel back on with screws and now it works like a new one, runs very quiet. Cost was 25 dollars for part nothing to do it ourselves. We priced new dryers that size they're well over 400 dollars. Easy REpair!!

Used repair video as guideline, I did not have their lab conditions to work in and by no means a clean machine. Also I had a two part front panel vs. single as in video, so disassembly and reassembly were OJT."on job training". Video was however very usefull in locating problem, getting correct part and accomplishing the repair. Saved $$ and machine is now working properly again. Am saving this web-site to my favorites list.

Ordered new rollers from PartSelect. I followed the video to replace the rollers. Everything went well. The video did not show how to put the belt back on. I then went to replace broken belt and there was the way to go through the pulley. Works great with no noise. Just like new. Thank you
