Ordered the part, called a friend that is a LP worker. He came over and in less than 15 mins had the new orface and regulator plunger installed and another 10 mins to install new flex pipe and shut off valve and it works great. It was really easy I watched him do it and could of done it myself if I did not have a friend that could do it.

Had no definative directions so kind of had to play it by ear. once I got the top and front off the directions that came with the part were spot on. My biggest problem was I guess I was a little over agressive with the drum and I pulled the tension pulley off the bottom. I had to drill a hole and bolt it back down because I couldnt get the little flanges to bend over enough to hold it. It works now but I havent done a load of clothes yet to make sure it will stay together

Man o man...please listen up. Would not start..replaced the thermal fuse was the first step I took according to web sight...started right up... Then it took 2 cycles to dry clothes..I went down the recommendations from the highest. % to the lowest %..replaced. over 80$ in parts..cleaned out all vents..from lint ext...still would not work..then come to find out my kids jammed a small toy in the exhaust flap on the outside of the house..the flap stayed closed when the dryer was running..there was no place for hot air to go but back in the dryer..and it seemed to run fine..but the sensors were cutting off the heat early...lesson learned..do not buy any parts until u clean all lint parts..vents..and make sure there are no obstructions with air flow..other wise this is the best place to buy parts..period..

Initially bought a few parts based on past experience without testing first....my mistake. After testing and purchasing the correct parts the dryer works fine. This is by far the best DIY web site I've ever used and recommend it highly. If you can follow online instructions, this is the way to go....it saves $$$ on service calls.

First unplug the unit and move to an area where you will have enough room to pull the drum out. I opened the top by sliding a screwdriver in the top left and right edge and popping the clips to allow the top to lean up and back against the wall. I tried to unclip the harness for the door switch but couldn't get the harness to release and instead took out the two screws holding the door switch in place. This is located on the top right inside the dryer door. Once the switch was off I was able to use the socketdriver to undo the two screws on the inside top left and right to release the front of the dryer by pulling up easily and unhooking the bottom front. I was then able to set the front of the dryer aside and begin removing the belt from the tension wheel and motor. Pay close attention to how the two are connected because it will confuse you putting it back together.The belt feeds through the tension wheel and when you release it the tension wheel is just sitting in place and may pop out of place. Remember which slots it sets back into for when you put the dryer back together. We removed the drum, checked the two rollers to make sure they were in good working order. I removed quite a bit of debris from them. Once the drum was out I pulled off the old seal. Took a piece of sandpaper to rub away any excess old adhesive and began installing the new felt seal. Follow the directions carefully to ensure that the seal is sitting on the edge properly before you begin applying adhesive under the edge. I had someone helping me to install the seal but probably would have needed clamps to hold the seal while working it on. It's not a super tight fit but is fitted and once you start putting it on it easily slips off the other side. A couple clamps would hold it in place if you don't have someone to help. Once the seal is on and you apply the adhesive you begin putting the drum back into place first by slipping the belt back over the drum where it can hang until you are ready to put it back on the motor. You have to make sure the seal isn't folded under the back of the dryer. Again a little tricky but if you gently spin the drum slowly counter clockwise a few times you can work it so it's not folded under. Once you see everything is in place you can reconnect the belt through the tension wheel onto the motor. Check drum again by spinning counter clockwise. Install the front of the dryer back on by setting it into the bottom clips. Put the top screws back in. Re-install the door switch making sure it's back in place with the tab sticking through the hole at the top of the dryer door. Bring the top back down. Close the dryer door and plug it back in and everything should be good to go. It wasn't a difficult job at all and I would probably attempt other repairs now that I've done this one. Beware the adhesive is kind of watery when it comes out but you don't need to use a lot under the edge of the seal. Good luck with your repair. I am thankful that PartSelect was so easy to order my parts from and I got the part within a few days. Thanks!

All I had to do was take out the broken filter and replace it with the new one. It fit perfectly. The replacement took less than 5 minutes. I should have done it a year ago!!
