After removing the bottom front panel using a putty knife to pry the upper left and right edges of the panel, I noticed that the long thin drum belt had broken. I went online to PartSelect, and using the Whirlpool model number, found the parts diagrams. Since the dryer is 20 years old, I decided to order the maintenance kit part# PS373087 which includes new idler wheels, retainer clips, and a tension pulley as well as the belt . I found a number of webpages that offer guidance in replacing the belt. Along with the instructions that came with the maintenance kit, I was able to do the repairs and have the dryer up and running in 30 minutes. Remember to remove the door springs before taking off the upper front panel. You only need to loosen the bottom screws on this panel. Leaving them in place helps to align and hold the panel when re-installing it.

Opened up the dryer and found that the belt broke. Came to this web-sight and was quickly directed to the correct part once viewing the schematics, and then watched the video. The day the parts arrived in the mail, I went to work and managed to get the drying working that night! Thank you for the parts, the video...made it very easy to complete. Sheral

Went to Partselect Web site,entered my problem,BAM! instant solution.Watched repair video and was surprised how simple repair looked.Heck I can do this,no problem! I work from 7 A.M. to 5 P.M. so theres no chance to stop by local appliance part store before they close. Ordered my parts from Partsselect,arrived in just two days. Followed video instructions ,completed job in thirty minutes or less! I also got important information regarding maintenance and cleaning dryer to prevent fire hazard.Thanks,for help and saving me time and money.When I have a problem in the future I now know where to go.

Pulled the back off, removed heating element and thermostat, installed new heating element and thermostat. This didn't fix my problem. Now I'm not sure what to do. I watched a video on diagnosing the problem on youtube. It helped me install the parts I bought. Now I'm not sure what the problem is as the ones I bought and installed didn't fix the problem. I guess diagnosing is my problem now.

Can't stop laughing about the mistake I almost made, before I even looked on internet I called Sears and scheduled a repair appointment, $80.00 just to have someone come out and tell me what my problem was not to repair it but to tell me whats wrong. And I told them the belt had broken I heard it when it snapped. Long story short version I found your website and entered appliance information, found part for $15.00 but also found on-site video clearly making the needed repair. Clear step by step instructions taking only 8 minutes looked very easy so I took a chance ordered the part two days later part arrived so I went into basement armed with laptop and tools. MAN it was easy.... too easy ....worked out fine video was spot on. Thanks you guys are a great company

Watched how-to video provided on PartSelect website. Most time was spent cleaning out the cabinet of lint and other debris. I found over 5 bucks in loose change! I Found pulling the belt over the motor pulley to be the trickiest. Note: my dryer will be 30 years old come this September. I wonder how many more years I'll get out of it!

PartSelect sent the exact right part, and very quickly! YouTube showed me how to install it. The only hard part was the bulkiness of the drum, which is why I marked "a bit difficult" for the repair.

The dryer belt was delivered promply, afterwards I lifted the top of the dryer and unscrewed the front panel, so it would lower. Then I watch a 5 minute video and it clearly demonstrated how to install the belt. This was my first time, so it took about 30 minutes.

Motor hum on start-up

Trouble shot to failed motor. Ordered motor and new drive belt. The hardest part is figuring out how the dryer dis-assembles. Follow Parts Select on-line instructions. Also, several good instructional videos on You Tube! My recommendation is to order a new "blower wheel" when changing motor on a gas fired dryer. The heat combined with age bonds the blower fan to motor shaft. It had to be broken off in pieces to remove motor.

The dryer belt broke.

I watched the attached video that was with the belt I ordered and it took less time to do the repair, then it did to watch the video. The video was very helpful.
