Lint Chute and Lint Trap Seals had Deteriorated

  • Difficulty: Easy

The on-line instructions were excellent; however, the man doing the demonstration used a brand new machine - not one where the old seals had melted and dried out and required serious cleaning before attaching the new seals. The new seals went on easily and I am very happy with everything about this task. I am also glad I now know what that lint chute looks like, so I'll do a better job of keeping it clean in the future.

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

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

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!!

Watched the video but realized my dryer was a little different removed bottom front panel to expose area to remove thermal fuse. Checked for continuity, found that there wasn't any. Ordered part and replaced it, fired right up!!

The appliance can be turned on but motor won't start.

I opened up the instrument panel box using philips screw driver and found the repair instructions. Followed the symtom diagnostic page and found that if the machine can be turned on but motor not working then check thermal fuse or motor. Next, I unplugged the appliance and remove the back panel to locate where the thermal fuse and other parts per the diagram in the repair instructions. Using a volt meter, I removed the electrical plugs to the thermal fuse and check resistance (a 1 on the volt meter indicated that the fuse is open (or burned)). Removed the thermal and checked for part number and looked up the model and parts number on the internet. Took a chance and ordered the part. When the order arrived 3 days later, I just simply replaced it and put everything back to where they were. Hooked up the power supply and turned on the dryer. It works again!! One thing I found was that I needed to clean the air pipe since it was totally clogged and probably caused the machine to overheat and burn out the fuse.

pretty simple fix not much to it. If you are familiar with electrical work a dryer is just about as basic as it gets. Thermal fuse was bad, swapped it out and up and running again. It took me longer to get the dryer pulled out and cleaned up, than it did to replace the fuse. Wow was it diry back there!

Heating element had 2 wire connections and 2 screws that held it in place and was easy to replace. Thermal fuse had 2 wire connections and 1 screw holding it in place. Over all, this repair took about 5 minutes to complete and the dryer works great again! Mike N.

Removed back of dryer and the fuse was right there in plain sight. Had to remove a screw and pull contact wires from fuse. Attached wires to new fuse, replaced screw that held fuse in place. Replaced dryer back. This web site is great! Diagnosed my problem, and then received the replacement part the next day! I will use the site again, if necessary, and recommend it to others.
