Dryer was clunking very loudly

Followed instructions that came with the dryer with the exception of the idler pulley which I didn't install because this maintenance kits idler pulley does not match my dryers. Not even close. I would have had to cut or drill holes to make it work. Since I knew it was the rollers that were the problem. Dryer worked great once I was done, but it probably would have been cheaper for me to order the parts individually without the Idler Pulley if I wasn't going to replace one.

Dryer became EXTREMELY noisy

Kit arrived with all the parts required and with detailed instructions. LOL... the very specialized tool you will need to dis-assemble the dryer? A PUTTY KNIFE. All in all, aside from the top of the dryer slamming shut without warning and scaring the pants off me, this was a relatively easy repair from a technical level. Only real difficult thing was removing and then restoring the drum and that was more due to clearance than actually being difficult. Make sure once you're finished to LEVEL THE DRYER. That makes a HUGE difference!!!!!

Loud grinding noise while drying

I ordered the maintenance kit because it was recomended for my application and the symptoms my dryer was exhibiting. However this kit did not apply to my model. My model contained 4 drum rollers, only 2 came with the kit, and the idler pulley setup was completely different. I should have pulled the dryer apart first to compare pictures to the actual parts. No big deal, prompt refund after a quick phone call to Parts select. I was able to fix my idler pulley with a couple of new nylon washers and a new snap ring to hold it in place.

Removed back cover,top,lower and upper front,and drum. Cleaned dust and dirt drom all of the removed parts and then removed the "lint tube". Took the tube apart to clean out dirt and lint, cleaned the lint off of the motor and blower wheel, and then removed the support wheels. Installed the "lint tube" and then the new support wheels with the new locks and then installed the new belt onto the drum. I had to support the drum in order to correctly line up the belt, and then installed the upper front panel. plugged in the power cord and started the motor to be sure everything was OK before closing up the rest of the cabinet. All was OK and the belt tracted perfectly. Installed the lower front panel, top, and the rear panel. Installed the gas connection, checked for gas leaks and installed the dryer back in place. checked operation with a batch of wet clothes and the dryer worked "better than new"!!! The instruction sheet was "spot on" for clarity and accuracy.

I reviewed the instruction video. Excellant video. exactly like my dryer. Just followed the instructions. I did put a shoe under the drum for easier installation of belt onto idler pulley. I vacuumed and cleaned inside. Really not that dirty.Excellant web site and video instructions. Wish I had done the repair sooner. Also God Bless the residents of OK city, Moore, and ElReno.

After watching your video, and reviewing the directions, I was able to change the rollers, the belt and tension bar with ease. The parts cost me slightly under 50.00 and now the noise is gone and my dryer works great. I am very pleased with PARTSELECT and would use them again. The parts were at my house within three days of placing the order !!!

Basically, I just did everything in the Parts Select video - it's what gave me the courage to attempt the repair myself and I am a 61 yr. old woman, who's not in great physical shape! The belt had broken. The two things that gave me the most trouble were disconnecting the tab on the door switch assembly and getting the screws to line up when replacing the front panel - one side lined up fine - the other needed a good push and an "alley-oop" to the side with my hip to fall into place. I did a few things that were not in the video which I think really helped me out. (1) I put an empty quart sized paint can under the dryer drum to hold it up - that really helped - I only had to support it slightly myself when threading the new belt. (2) I put a piece of duct tape across the bottom of the idler pulley to keep that from falling out of the holes when I was threading the new belt - that worked like a charm. Just be sure to remove the piece of duct tape and the paint can before you close up the dryer, if you decide to follow those two tips. (3) I also eventually put something under the front door panel to help raise it up and get it more in line with the two holes that it connects into, which made it easier for me to get it back into place. (4) Have some bandaids on hand - I sliced two fingers on different parts while installing the whole kit. (5) After you are done, either clean out the dryer vent hose or put a new one in - I was surprised by how much lint was clogged up in there. I never repaired any appliance before and if a 61 yr. old weakling like myself can do it, anyone can. Parts Select Rocks - the kit arrived a day and a half after it was shipped out and the video tells you everything you need to know to do this repair yourself and save big money. $49 versus probably $150 for a repairman and $500+ for a new dryer. Dryer is running like new! Would definitely do this again, if this or another dryer broke in the future. Thanks!

Belt was worn, rollers were sticking, idler worn out. Ordered a kit to care for these issues, as usual the reapirs took almost no time. Dryer became a bit quieter for a first load, second load the motor siezed. I priced rebuilding most of the machine and determined replacement was due.

The machine just stopped.

I had some trouble getting the top off. I don't think it has ever been done. It was so dirty inside that I took the shop-vac to it. The belt was not broken but had shifted in the track somehow. I was very lucky as I'm a female senior citizen. My husband, who used to do all these thing, is very ill and unable to help. Unfortunately, we live in a small town and there is no one within 50 miles of us to help us. The video was very helpful. I was so glad I watched it.

Broken dryer belt

I simply followed the instructions, replaced the belt, tub support wheels and tension pullie. Could not have been easier. I figured it was worth $47.00 to buy the kit and if it was another issue, at least I saved money vs. a service call. There are only so many things that can go wrong and the belt was the fix. 20 yr old dryer works just like new.

Squealing noise during drying cycle

Repair was as straightforward and simple as the videos implied. The most difficult part of the repair was disconnecting the door wiring. It could be more plainly shown in the videos. After that it was simple. The cleanup inside the dryer, lint, etc., took as long as the repairs. An extra set of hands to hold the drum in place while routing the new belt over the drive pulley would have made it even simpler. Runs like a new dryer now.

I had to spin drum for dryer to start, bad start winding on motor, not sure if the problem could have been fixed by replacing the motor contactor. I could not find a part # for just the contactor.

You have to disassemble the dryer. I looked up how to on youtube.com. I am grateful that people take the time to record the steps in which to do just about anything. Disassembled and ordered motor and fan, damaged fan taking it off, got it in in just a couple of days, installed motor, fan and drum, tested before complete assembly. Works great. Thanks
