Loud humming noise then motor would stop

  • Customer: Clarke from Lynnwood WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

The dryer would make a loud humming noise and the seize up. I would reset the breaker and the dryer would run briefly and then seize up. I opened the dryer and cleaned out all the lint on the motor but it did not help. I spun the motor shaft and felt like a bearing inside had failed. I watched Steve in the video-he was awesome and made it all simple- and ordered the correct parts. I decided to replace the rollers, belt, and pulley as well as the motor. The repair is very easy-and worth it- EXCEPT one piece of advice. BUY the blower fan that attaches to the motor. Mine did not come off easily like in the video. The plastic shaft deteriorated under pressure from the wrench. I was forced to use a heat gun to melt/then cut the blower fan from the motor. It was not easy but don't let it deter you from the repair. I used a table vice but never could remove the remanents of the blower fan shaft from the motor. The repair was a snap after that. Great site for parts and help.

loud squealing when running

  • Customer: Michael from Easton MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I followed the video provided by PartSelect. It pretty much went exactly like the video said it would. I was pretty sure the belt or idler pully must be the culprit, but I didn't even know how to open the thing up until I saw your video. I would likely still be putting up with the squealing without that video. Now the dryer is nice and quiet. -Mike

Watched a video on utube and realized how easy this looked, took my dryer apart to see the belt broken in half and the idler pulley in pieces. Found Partselect on the internet and ordered my parts. Partselect was awsome, website was easy to navigate, ordered my parts and they were at my house the very next day and were the correct parts. Cleaned all the lint and dust out of the inside of my machine, installed new parts and put it back together. Works great and is still running strong. A service call, plus parts (with thier mark up) could have easily been $150.00 - $200.00 dollars. this repair was complete in about an hour and only cost me $37.50

broken wheel

I had purchased a motor for the dryer first. The blower wheel broke while I was trying to take the motor off from the blower wheel. Installing the new wheel was fairly easy once I took the blower cover of at the back of the dryer and literally brake the wheel of the motor shaft.

i had difficult time getting wheel off.

found out that pushing in on wheel and turning counter clock wise, wheel screws off rather easy.

Dryer wouldn't start... Just a hum when you press the start button.

Well it took me longer to get the dryer apart and than it did to get it back together... Well I opened it up it was obvious I had burned up the motor you couldn't even see it for all the lint that was built up around it... And the hardest part was removing the fan from the motor shaft, I didn't realize it was plastic and sort of mangled it getting it off so I went ahead and replaced it as well. The hardest part of the whole repair was removing and replacing the clips that hold the motor in place and there didn't seem to be any trick to it, I used a pair of channel locks and a little muscle to get them off and back on everything else was a breeze! I recommend checking the exhaust pipe at least once a year to make sure air is flowing freely to prevent the lint build up inside and even more often if you have a long run. This should prevent having this problem again...

Broken Blower Wheel

  • Customer: James from Mosca CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

Remove the back panel, then remove the housing around the blower, just slide the housing of to the side, you don't have to take it completly of the machine. Remove the top, and remove the front until you can get to the blower motor. Cut the blower wheel plastic down to the metal nut with a fine blade in a recipricating saw, used a bi-directional broken stud remover socket on the nut that was at the center of the blower wheel and large slip joint plyer on the other end of the shaft. Replace the wheel and put back together. It took about as much time to gather up the tools as it did to fix it.,

I had to spin drum for dryer to start, bad start winding on motor, not sure if the problem could have been fixed by replacing the motor contactor. I could not find a part # for just the contactor.

You have to disassemble the dryer. I looked up how to on youtube.com. I am grateful that people take the time to record the steps in which to do just about anything. Disassembled and ordered motor and fan, damaged fan taking it off, got it in in just a couple of days, installed motor, fan and drum, tested before complete assembly. Works great. Thanks

Dryer would not run

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.

I unplugged dryer. Took the top back plate off. Removed the dial and the screw on the front. Removed the two screws from the back and pulled the timer out. Pulled wires off one at a time and put them on the new time in the exact place and screwed it in. Put the screw and front plate on and plugged dryer in and checked it. It worked. Unplugged dryer again and put back plate back on. Done

I reviewed the instruction video. Excellant video. exactly like my dryer. Just followed the instructions. I did put a shoe under the drum for easier installation of belt onto idler pulley. I vacuumed and cleaned inside. Really not that dirty.Excellant web site and video instructions. Wish I had done the repair sooner. Also God Bless the residents of OK city, Moore, and ElReno.
