Turning the timer on the drier, it felt smooth - no clicking. Rotated to the setting and turned the Start knob - nothing. Pulled the Timer knob off by hand and noticed splits down both sides of the knob. ordered a new knob, pushed it - back in business. Partselect was quick about getting me the replacement part. Thanks

squeaked & I had already replaced the parts once

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Unscrew the top panel parts three screws. Then another three or six screws to get to the dryer front which needs only to lift straight up about two inches. Pull back slightly and replace the teflon slides. To replace the slides they lay on a tiny plastic pin and slightly bend into the slot to hold them in place. Reseat the dryer drum. Reverse the process to make it like new. From the time you start hearing the dryer squeak, BE CERTAIN to replace these within a week or two (depending on usage.)Otherwise, you may wear out the housing where the teflon would rest. If that happens, you will be out more money to replace the housing and a lot more time to install. Been there and done that. Trust me.

removed the top back panel ,(6 phillips head screws,)remove knob, (pulls off)the switch requires about a quarter turn to remove. Remove wires from old switch. They just unplug. Plug onto new switch, reinstall switch and good to go.Reinstall knob. Really easy. The hard part for me was leaning over the dryer from the front because I did not want to pull away from wall too far and have to worry about reinstalling dryer vent duct. I had to work in tight area.If I could have gotten behind the dryer, the whole operation would have taken about 10 minutes.Very easy to change.

The dryer door wouldn't stay closed.

There is a plastic female closure part in the dryer door that wouldn't close tightly around the metal male closure on the dryer. I popped out the plastic square with a screwdriver, popped the new plastic closure in with my thumb. Works great. I never even installed the new metal portion of the latch.

1st I suspected it's just the timer knob so I ordered the knob. Soon as I was installing the knob it was too loose, when I inspected the timer stem it was also broke. So I ordered a timer. Soon as the timer arrived, I installed the timer and tested the dryer then it came on.
