Motor was tight, very hard to turn by hand. take the back motor mount strap off and you will be able to put an adjustable wrench on the shaft of the blower. you should be able to put vice grips on the pulley end and turn motor counter clock wise (CCW) to let handle of vice grips rest against the bottom of the machine and turn adjustable wrench CCW to turn off blower wheel. However, the one I did, the wheel was so tight I ended up having to break the blower wheel down small enough so I could pull the motor out. remove the front motor mount strap and pull the motor out. Install the new motor wheel and motor in the revers order. Set motor in place, install front motor mount strap, put blower wheel in from the back of the machine and start treading on the motor shaft. Then,from the front, tighten the blower with wrenches turning clock wise and put machine back together. Always unplug machine whenever working on it. If you go to Whirlpool web site there is a step by step video that will walk you through this entire process.

The replacement that was ordered was a perfect fit for the worn part and merely required placement into the lint screen area. The entire procedure, from ordering the part, to installation was amazingly easy. I would not hesitate to order future parts from PartSelect.

Dryer made kind of a grinding noise when it started. A repair technician looked at it and said it needed new drum support rollers and shafts.

  • Customer: Janis from Lakewood CO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

I followed the instructions on the Part Select website for drum support rollers and shaft. The videos were great! (There wasn't one for the right side shaft but I could extrapolate from the other instructions.) The hardest part for me was releasing the dryer top - the video made it look so easy but it took me a long time to get the little clips to release with the putty knife. Also, tightening the new right side shaft required the help of another person as my arms are not long enough to hold the shaft with pliers while I tightened the nut in the back of the dryer (and I did have to remove the back cover for this shaft). I would recommend to anyone even a little bit handy to attempt a repair following part select's videos.

Noise due to rollers and shafts worn

  • Customer: Frank from Leechburg PA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

Removed front and back covers on dryer, screws on top and down one side to spread cabinet to remove drum,removed blower cover to get access to shaft nut on that side. The other is accessible. I found that both shafts can bethe longer of the two that were sent. The shorter shaft is too short and needed to be modified to let the roller come outward to lay in the grove in the drum. I will get a longer shaft and replace it.

The dryer sounded like a thrashing machine.

I consulted the internet and found Part Select and use online repairman to diagnose the problem and found the roller solution with the parts, video and parts illustration. Sure enough, the left roller hole was worn and egg shaped. I ordered the parts on a Wednesday afternoon. While I waited, I got all the lint from the bottom pan, motor, and around the burner cleaned out and ready for the new parts. The parts arrived Friday morning and I installed them and put the dryer back together before noon. The dryer works and sounds like a new machine. Now I am ready to attack the squeaky fan motor in the freezer compartment of our refrig.
