It was as easy as the repair film said it was . But after spending the money for the upper and lower baring seals I put it all back together and the motor started making a loud noise ? I took the drum and everything out and started the motor without the drum just the motor was running and the danged motor is going out now !I checked the price of a new motor its not to bad but with all of the parts I have put in this thing I could have paid part of what it would have cost for a new dryer ! I put it all back together and hope it last long enough to at least recoup some of what I have spent ,But the new parts work good !

clothes were getting caught on the inside top of the drum

The video was a great help, but when working on my general electric I removed the control panel screws and lifted the panel and the top and made it very easy then trying to get the top off without moving the control panel. Also, on general electric dryers covering the wires was a lint guard but using needle nose pilers going through the guard holes you can pull off and reattach the wires then using fingers. My repair time took longer then what was posted by others, I took time to clean all the lint ducts on the machine before putting it back together. Runs smoother, drys in less time, and the noise is down to a steady quiet hum.

No problem at all.

I did as the video instruction showed me. I used the pliers and with one pull the metal piece came off and I just put the new knob on it did not take a minute.It was so easy. I am so happy to know that I can get my parts at a great price and do it myself. I have a service plan through my electric company that I pay a fee monthly and if I need services for any appliances there is an additional $25.00 for services and that does not include the part needed to fix my dryer. I ordered my own part with shipping and handling and it still came out less than $25 with no additional fee. I am very satisfied that I now can order parts and do it myself. Thank you PartSelet.

watched the Video on PartSelect.com Before I did the repair. . ordered the parts that where suggested.. Once the parts arrived to my home I again watched the repair video and proceeded to do the dryer repair with ease! I replaced the Drum Bearing slide, Front Drum Bearing and the Drum Bearing Slide.. It was a very easy repair to do and saved me a lot of money by doing it myself! The Video that showed how to do the repair was very helpful as well. .

The clothes would get caught where the drum slide should be (it was almost totally worn down) and would leave black marks. I watched Parts Select youtube video. Bought the parts needed from Parts Select. They arrived within a couple of days. I replaced the 2 drum slides and no more getting caught. Took about 20 minutes.

The replacement handle, though it didn't look like the handle it was replacing, fit perfectly. Simply put the 'hinge' parts in place and then snapped the handle right onto the dryer; a perfect fit. Same for the filter - removed the old one, took out the remaining lint/dust and replaced the filter with the new one. Took no time at all, and works beautifully.
