I didn't have a part number and went online and matched the part to the picture. It came the next day by FedEx and it took less than 5 minutes to replace the old part with the new part. Really simple and easy!

Before removing the old part,took photo with my phone camera to document the color wires hook up. Screwed in the new part and hooked up the color coded wires using the photo as reference. I was surprised how easy it was. Thanks. Partselect gave me fast shipping, cheap price and great customer service.

Dry will not dry. Strange noise

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Open door of the dryer. Remove two screws pointing upward near top of the front panel then remove the lik. Next remove two screws one on each side of the front panel from the inside. Lift out the entire front panel assembly. Remove wiring using plyers. Write wire color to location using a sharpie on the panel near where the connections are. The blower housing was loose and was simply tightened by replacing the blower clip on the motor shaft and tightening the screw. This can be accessed from the blower opening in the front. To replace the rear bearing, the belt, and the idler pulley the drum will need to be removed. Reach above the blower motor and relieve the belt tension by pushing the tension pully rod toward the drum. You may need to loosen the side panel to help access the belt. Remove screws in front, back, and one on top. Once the belt is loosened, lift drum up and put straight out. The idler pulley can be replaced using plyers. The drum bearing will need a nut driver and someone to help. The extra person will be behind the drum to remove and realign the screws, while the other person is inside the drum. The rear bearing is easier and only requires removing the 4 screws on the mounting panel. Reverse all steps from reassembly.

This was the first time I have used your company to purchase appliance parts.I was very impressed with your companies parts and the way you followed up to insure I knew how to replace the parts. The video and the instructions were very helpful for a first timer and I'm sure for someone who has done this before. I will use you in the future for all of my parts. Thanks again for your help

squeeky & grinding sound while turning

  • Customer: mark from Kingdom City MO
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I tried replacing just bearing slides previously, but because I ignored the squeel too long, the drum wore through the bearing and new slides wouldn't stay in place, so I did this job twice. Open door, two Philips screws hold front edge of top to front panel (not clips to pry like somemodels). Lift top panel up to maneuver the tabs from control panel slots. Set top panel aside. Two more screws accessed from inside hold front panel top to side panels. Once they're out, lean front panel against something to keep wires from pulling. Pop bearing collar out with your fingers or a flat screw driver, top edge out first. Put new one in, replace tabs (4 of them) while your at it. Assemble in reverse order. Lesson learns...check those sacrificial slides after 8 years, spend te bucks to replace, and don't ignore the squeek sound or you'll have to replace the bearing as well.
