Loud "squacking, squeeling noise" during operation

Found right parts for problem on this website. Handyman took down machine and installed the drum support wheels. Taking apart was not too difficult; getting drum and dryer face aligned properly was a bit difficult and took longer than expected (and 3 of us). However, it was much better than having to buy a new dryer, since there was very little really wrong with this one. BTW, it was "out of warranty" so it would have cost around $150-$250 to repair using the repair service from the retailer we bought it from. Saved lots of money. Thanks.

broken dryer belt

Everyone said changing a dryer belt was a piece of cake.They did not tell the truth it is a difficult job. I am a 52 year old female and I had a problem. You have to take the whole drum out. I finally completed the job but i had to prop the drum up with blocks so I could screw in the front panel. I think for those who want to change the belt I would go smoother with two people so the can hold things in place while the other one screws the panels back. I also think taking the dryer door off make the front panel a lot more easier to put in palce.

Following the step by step instructions it took longer to clean the old lint out of the bottom of the dryer than to perform the entire repair.The maintenance kit came complete with every moving part(except the motor and drum)and now it runs very quietly.I am all thumbs when it comes to tools but this was very simple.

Dryer became EXTREMELY noisy

  • Customer: Lawrence from Cape Coral FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

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!!!!!

rear seal hanging inside the dryer and lots of lint escaping

  • Customer: Jeanette from Celestine IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

It was fairly easy, the comments and pics on this site were quite heplful. I just took out the screws on the lint trap and popped the top by pushing in on the clips with a putty knife. zlift the top and swing it back. I cut the old belt with a utility knife since i was replacing it and lifted out the drum. the drum wheels just pop off and on so they are really easy to replace. next I took off the old rear seal with a putty knife and put the new one on. This is a messy affair if you are not careful, I ended up with adhesive all over my hands. Next loop the new belt over the drum and replace it aligning it. You kneed someone to help you hold the drum level while you replace the belt wheel and front. Run the drum around with a putty knife under the new seal to make sure it is not tucked under anywhere. Put it all back together and you are done.

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.

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.

Dryer was clunking very loudly

  • Customer: Jim from Huntington Beach CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

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.

I watched your repair video and followed what the repair man said and did, it was a snap! I needed my dryer fast so decided to do it myself. I am a 65 year old female and petite, so I say if I can do it anyone can. Your video was the key to my sucess.
