This was my first dryer repair. The only difficulty I had was figuring out how the belt tensioner was set up with the belt. The old belt broke so I didn't know how it was suppose to work. Anyway, it took a few minute to figure out that one end of the bracket was a "spring" that allowed it to flex a long ways! Pretty easy job.

I followed video instructions. Raised the top, slipped off the front, installed the belt, aligned, installed tension part, reinstalled front, lowered the top and inserted lint trap. Job done. Quick and easy. The video was the key to the whole project.

The video you had of my dryer was different then my dryer and the pulley was in the middle of the bottom and the motor and fan were in front of it. I had to replace the belt without being able to see what I was doing. I couldn't get it at first then realized there was tension on the pulley wheel and had to pull it towards the other wheel in order to get the belt on there. Once I pulled the wheel it went on really easy. My first time working on a dryer but I knew I could do it myself.

I Removed the rear panel. Then I used the instructions online to locate and test various parts and determined what was defective. I order the parts online and received them the next day. It took less than 30 minutes to do the repairs. The dryer works great.I will be using partselect.com in the future and would recommend them to anyone who is having problems with their appliance.

Clothes getting hot, but not getting dry

Verified that the heater element was working; drum and contents were getting hot. Could hear the thermostat clicking on/off as the element started to glow. Drum stayed very steamy the entire time; consistent with no airflow. Fan motor was running, dryer vent/line were clear. Verified cold (not hot) air from the external vent. Seals had degraded to the point that the fan was not drawing air from the drum, but from inside the dryer cabinet at the lower seal (by the fan blades); hot air was escaping from the upper seal and was causing the dryer cabinet to get unusually hot. Installed these 2 seals, and the dryer is working perfectly now.

Lint Chute and Lint Trap Seals had Deteriorated

  • Customer: Robert from Melbourne, FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

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!!

I followed the excellent video instructions for dryer drive belt replacement. The tensioner proved to be a little tricky. I also had to fiddle the drum back into position. Now that I've actually done the repair, it would take half as long if doing it over.
