To start off I am disabled so I had my 14 year old daughter to help me.I opened the top of the dryer,disconnected the door button and had my daughter help wire the top open and take off the front panel.We took this time to clean out the dryer for it was quite built up with lint.I then gave my daughter my cell phone and told her to stick it in the dryer to take pictures of the area we needed to work on.I then showed her the pictures and explained in detail how everything worked and what she needed to do.I then put the belt around the drum and she proceeded to put the belt on the pulley and tension rod.At this point we are both filty and both have gotten miner injuries.I spun the drum and it and the belt both spun,we thought GREAT we have fixed it,so we put it all back together,plugged it in and nothing.So we take it back apart,but this time I stick my hand in there and find out she didn't have the belt on the pulley,it was wrapped around the tension rod so I fixed that problem.Then I figured out that she hadn't pulled the tension rod over to its proper place so I do that as well.This time I spin the motor fan in front to make sure we have it right.We put it all back together, plug it in and it WORKS,so we throw the jeans in because we have to be at a B DAY party in a couple hours.The dryer buzzer goes off and we both go to check and the clothes are soaking wet.I open the top of the dryer and the brand new belt is broken.So many mixed emotions at this time I cant tell you how disappointed and upset we where.So she took her jeans out and used a hair blow dryer to dry them and I hung the rest all over the house.So I decide not mess with the dryer for a couple days because of my frustrations with it.We have to do laundry everyday,I have three teenagers,so I have clothes drying all over my house every day.Even went to the laundry mat once $40.00 it cost me.A couple days go by and I decide to see what happend. This time I have my 15 year old daughter help me.I completely disconnect the dryer from everything.We put it on top of A table and take it apart.What do I find?the motor pulley is broken and has jagged edges the shredded a piece of the new belt.As I mentioned earlier I am disabled and am on SS so I only get paid once a month and have no extra money so now I have to wait until the end of November to order another belt and the motor pulley.In the mean time there is wet laundry hanging all over my house with fans blowing on it to help dry it faster.So what was supposed to cost approximately $20.00 to fix is now going to total over $100.00.I do thank you for the speedy delivery of the dryer belt and we had A great time at the B DAY party.thanks

Dryer drum would not turn

  • Customer: Peter from Evanston IL

I researched the issue, found a video and ordered the belt, which came in 2 days. It was inexpensive, and I had my dryer back and running in less than 3 days. I did get my son to help me as it might not be that easy with just 1 person (to hold the drum in place while putting the front back on). Great service and great information on how to do the repair.

I removed the top of the dryer and removed the faulty switch form it's mating connector. The simply removed two Phillips Head round headed screws with a screw driver and replaced the part all within 15 minutes. However, I also heard that it wasn't drying properly so after making sure my dryer vent was free of any lint build up, I removed the back of the dryer. Once removed, I completely cleand any dust from inside the dryer, then checked all of the visable wire connections and then went to PartSelect's fantastic web-site. Her they catagorize the top 7 reasons that could cause the problem (in my case) not drying and thenproceed to give you an idea of the most likely cause by publishing the failure rat in per centage values in decending order, they also provide schematics and the on top of all of that...they provide mini-videos not only showing you wher the parts are located but the step by step instructions on how to remove them and replace them. After all of this, I took my ohm meter and actually removed all of the 7 parts suggested, cleaned them up, ran a continuity check on each part and found them all in working order. Replaced the parts and checked the heat and it was back to normal!! There must have be a lose connection causing the problem. But, I can guarantee that the next time I have an appliance problem...I'll again be calling on PartSelect.com. They are awesom and they will be highly recommended to anyone I know that is experiencing problems. I have not ever seen a web-site that was so complete in excellent service. And there prices and shipping time speaks for itself. They are great!!

Easy, screw driver (flathead) popped up two clamps on each side of top. maybe 3" from each side. Propped lid up with I think I used a full roll of paper towels, part was inside top left, unscrewed old,used small hook tool to unplug old, put new checked to see if it worked and bang lower top pop in place.NOTE : I am pretty good with fixing little things like this.. PLease UNPLUG for safety first then take time and be happy when you save $ on doing it yourself.

Dryer wouldn't start.

I watched the video multiple times until I was comfortable. He made it look so easy. I'm convinced the dryer was using had been "prepped" to come apart and go back together easily. The reality for me: Great difficulty popping the cabinet top. It took every ounce of power to push in the hinges. Disconnecting the existing switch was difficult. I depressed in the catches on each side, but of course one at a time since I only have two hands. I tried various rigs to get both pushed in at once - nothing. Finally I watched a different vendor's video and the technique he used worked for me. Lastly, screwing in the new part is darn near impossible upside down to screw it in straight. The screws also wouldn't go in flush with the surface. I got them in well enough to hold, but that's it. The good news, the choice of part was correct and it fixed the problem. Had it now, I would have gone to Plan B and ordered a different part and paid another $9 shipping on top of the part. In my next life, I'm going to marry a appliance repairman.

Disconnected power to the dryer, Opened the top of the dryer by sliding a thin scraper underneath the top on the front of the dryer and the pushed the top of the dryer up. I then disconnected the wire on the switch to isolate the switch from the wire in the dryer. I then removed the switch by unscrewing the two screws on the switch and then replaced it with the new switch. I then reconnected the wire to the wire in the dryer.

missing male door catch

  • Customer: Daniel from Lomita CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

After installing the new door catch, the door still wouldn't stay closed; the children had been using the door in the horizontal position as a stepladder, and consequently warped the door. I bent the door back to its original shape more or less and now it stays shut.
