Broken Dryer Handle

  • Customer: Mark from Ponchatoula LA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I'm one of those just start kind of guys, so I did. It was too simple. There are about 8 screws on the inside of the door (I'm not currently there so verify). I unscrewed them and found that there were screws (a more pointed tip) and bolts (a flat tip). I took all of the screws out, took off the black outter "ring" the handle is on that. Simply remove the handle and screw it all back together. 10 - 15 min. tops.

Bent slide on pedestal

  • Customer: Donald from Greenfield WI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 3 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
Note that the problem was with the pedestal, not the washing machine. In the process of attaching the two units together, the drawer in the pedestal is removed. When I tipped the assembly up, the slide slid out and locked horns with an object, bending the slide. The slide is an easy replacement. Just one screw holds it in place. A slot in the slide mates with a tab to hold the back side of the slide in place.

Dryer handle broke off

Well, my husband removed the screw from the inside of the door, removed the broken part of the old handle, then replaced and attached the new handle. That part was actually easy, but he had a tough time reaching the screws!

Lens melted because paper got behind the lens and was heated by the lamp.

My Kenmore dryer door catch was worn out, so the dryer door wouldn't stay closed, and I was unable to dry my laundry.

  • Customer: Carol from Golden Valley MN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
I identified the correct catch of the three that were included in the package by matching its number to that on the old catch that I had pried out of the door using a flat screwdriver. I centered the new catch over the square hole in the door and pressed it into place. Then I used some needle-nose pliers to twist and remove the metal pin that fits into the catch from the main dryer housing. I replaced that with the new piece included in the kit, gently tapping it into place with a hammer. The repair complete, the door worked perfectly. Thanks for your help and for the speedy delivery of the kit.

just a matter of removing 6 screws from the inside of the door, this allowing the front plastic part to which goes around the door to seperate from the metal door itsself. Then you have to remove the two screws that holds the handle on. very simple repair.

  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I used your great video for pointers as to what to do. I took off the front, raised the top, vacuumed the whole thing up, that took quite a while. Took out the drum. Did more cleaning. Then took off the old retaining rings with retaining ring pliers, took off the old drum rollers and support. Replaced with new roller supports, washer, roller, washer and retaining rings. Then I replaced the belt. Tested it and turned the wrong way and it came off. Replaced and tested it again and I don't know why but it came off. Replaced the belt again, tested fine. Then I replaced the felt pads and glides, they were worn. I ended up asking my husband to help hold the drum so I could get the front back on. Replaced front and door. Tried the dryer. Works great AND very, very little noise. Note: when taking the wiring off the light and the door switch, I took photo's of those places with my cell phone and had them to look at to make sure the wiring was correct.
