I followed the instructions provided by Partselect. The video and information were very clear and accurate. I have never taken a dryer apart, but have some tools and the cost savings plus the reward of fixing it myself were enough to inspire me to try. I was so happy with this experience I recently diagnosed and fixed a friends dryer with the helpful information from Partselect.

Sounded like a pair of gym shoes rolling in the dryer

I recently found your site and was pleasantly pleased with your troubleshooting suggestions and repair videos. My dryer was sounding like there was a pair of gym shoes inside bouncing around and your suggestion of the drum support rollers was right on the money. My dryer cabinet came apart a little differently then what the video showed but was workable.
I would like to suggest sending the washers that go in front of and behind the drum support roller with the drum rollers. The washers on my dryer were completely ground down to powder so I drilled out some stainless steel washers I had in my supply of extra parts. These washers are hard to find in a hardware store due to being so thin.
I would suggest to anyone changing these drum rollers to go ahead and order/replace the drum belt and front guides as long as you have the machine apart and had to take these off to get to drum rollers. I have had my dryer maintenance free for 17 years and figured they were probably close to being worn out as well. My front guides were paper thin and the drum belt had lots of cracks.
Total cost of bringing dryer back up to par was only $45.00. Saved at least $180.00 doing myself.

LOOKED ON YOUR WONDERFUL SITE AND FOUND TWO PARTS THAT WERE LISTED AS 80% THE PROBLEM. TOOK A CHANCE AND ORDERED BOTH PARTS. HUSBAND REPLACED BOTH PARTS. AND, YEAH.........WE HAD HEAT. SO NOT SURE WHICH ONE IT NEEDED....BUT, THE PRICE OF YOUR PARTS BEAT THE COSTS OF ANY REPAIR MAN. THANK YOU SO MUCH. WE'RE DRYING CLOTHES AGAIN!!! LK

Loud squeal and squeek

took dryer apart and replaced the drum support rollers. This did not work and problem is still there. The videos at the part select did not help since they seemed to be for a different dryer and nothing in them helped in any way to work on my unit. I did get a repair man out and was told that he had not seen one built like this one before.

No problems encountered.

The only difference is that I took apart the front frame, that is the white plastic plenum. The videos were of a clean machine, mine was not. I decided to wash the plenum so I took it off the frame. Had it not been the middle of winter in St. Louis, I could have hosed it clean outside, but not this winter. Disassembly allowed me to clean the plenum in the sink.I was extremely impressed with the service and videos. I will be doing business with you in the future and am telling all my DIY family and friends.

replaced roller wheels/ pulley wheel

I had two repairs, a few days apart while waiting for diagnosis and parts. I watched the videos and followed the steps, simple as that. I was able to replace the rear roller wheels without taking the drum all the way out. I tried the dryer with this 1st fix, some sounds went away but the worst one remained. Took the drum all the way out and replaced the idler pulley wheel just as the video shows. Everything went back together just fine- no extra parts and the dryer is soooooo quiet. My wife thinks I'm a stud for doing this, thank you partselect.com. A caveat, the e rings that hold the wheels on are a big pain to remove and reapply. The snap ring pliers needed to get these off don't always fit in the little openings to remove the ring.Get the smallest size tips if you buy the pliers. My pliers got an "A" for effort, a "D" for results. I used a pair of slotted screwdrivers to manipulate the rings off. Your mileage may vary.

Dryer making noise

The problem was easy to troubleshoot using the PartsSelect diagnostics on the website. After viewing the instructional videos for the parts I suspected I placed the order. When the parts arrived I reviewed the videos prior to attempting the repair. The problem was a drum support roller. I began by removing the top and front panels. The model I have was older than the video and the only trouble I had was that the top panel was screwed in place instead of clips. Once that was figured out the repair was pretty easy. I removed the drum, belt and replaced the Drum Support Rollers and Drum Glides, installed a new belt and reassembled. The parts for this type of repair are so reasonable that some of the parts I replaced were to insure longer life but actually were not in bad shape. Overall this was a very cost effective and relatively easy repair.
