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.

I looked at a couple of videos on U tube. Then ordered the parts ($43 total). First put in the High Limit thermostat (really a bimetal circuit brkr). Dryer tested good (that part was only about $7). But since I also ordered the Limit Thermostat (I think this just sets the temperature by regulating burner on time) I put that part in also and retested. All tests good. A repair house call costs $75 around here and that doesn't even include parts and maybe a revisit to install them. Simpler and cheaper for me to replace $43 total in parts. Dryers are simple devices. It ain't rocket science.

bushing inside drum support roller disintegrated

The repair video was very helpful. Until I started, when I discovered that the instructions did not match the design of my dryer. On my dryer, the top panel is secured by two bolts on tabs to the side panels. This puts them behind the front panel, so springing the clips does not help. They are there to hold the front panel to the top panel. Further, the front panel screws lie behind the bottom panel, so that has to come off first. Then the front panel. Then the top panel. All held on by 2 5/16 self-tapping bolts. A useful design feature. Beyond that, everything went according to the video. One other plus, the video plays without requiring the 3rd party software FlashPlayer from Adobe which is not allowed on my computer. So good choice for the video. One further note, at several points it was useful to have a 2nd person to hold parts while I loosened or fastened them, especially to hold the drum while I slipped the belt on the pulley.

I knew that it have to be worn out roller drums or the idler pulley with bearing. So, I ordered both items. I watched the repair video to know how to do it. I installed the items and the sound disappeared

The temperature was cold

I opened the base door and took out the heater panel and checked with an electrical meter. The high thermal fuse was blown out. I replaced the fuse and run it for five minutes, it was blown out again. I checked wires and nothing was wrong. I replaced another fuse and ran only three loads, it was blown out again. I though that it was a sixteen years old machine, I replaced the whole new heater panel with a new High Limit Thermal Fuse and a new Limit Thermostat. It ran good for 5 minutes test. I will know when I run a few loads in this Friday 4/25/14.

Used the Parts Select video. I also replaced the drum belt which I had ordered earlier. Repair went exactly as described in video. Belt looked fine but replaced anyway. Rollers and glides needed replaced. (Hint: felt pads for glides had come unglued and fallen to bottom of dryer-this was probably the main problem as glides no longer had support). I reused the same felt pads and glued them to bottom of new glides with Goop. You need O ring compressor and expander for rollers. Drum belt was a little hard to thread at the belt tensioner and video was not real clear. If you use left hand around left side of motor to guide the belt and right hand around right side of motor to compress tensioner, it worked great.

This part fit perfectly. I pulled the old lint filter out and put the new one in with no problems. The part no longer contains a felt seal so if that's your problem just pull the old felt seal off as it doesn't seem to need one.

When the dryer stopped working, I checked the two switches to see if they were good. The start button checked out OK but the switch on the door read bad. Ordered the part with the part number and put on when it arrived. Just a matter of disconnecting and reconnecting three wires. Very simple

squealing noise that would come and go

the idler lever is what finally fixed the problem but i ending up changing out the belt drum rollers and the felt glide pads before i fixed what it was. truthfully though its not a bad thing replacing all the moving parts. the hardest part about the rollers was the removal of the snap rings i had a pair of snap ring pliers that just didnt seem to work all that great and i ended up taking a screwdriver to pry them open which i dont suggest but its what i had available. other than that the videos are spot on. not hard at all.

I only had to watch your video! The absolute BEST instructions ever. Your videos have saved me already $480 in repair bills in just one month. First my washer needed a snubber ring, and you had that video and then the dryer parts. Thanks again for being there!
