Broken dryer belt

This is a space saver one piece unit with dryer on top. I first removed ten screws that hold the top on, I then removed four more screws that hold the front service cover on and two last screws that hold the rear service cover on. Now I seperated the front cover of the dryer from the dryer tumbler tub and slipped the new belt around the tub, then at the rear service cover I feed the belt through the tensioner and back onto the motor pully. Now just put the covers back in reverse order of removal and all done! "Piece of cake"

Dryer was VERY noisy and ate clothes on a regular basis.

Your videos did the trick! I don't think I would have been able to even properly diagnose what the problems were without the videos. So thank you for those!!! Once diagnosed, it was easy to find the right parts. The only downfall was I had to have them shipped to a friend on the US mainland, because you don't ship to Hawaii - bummer. Once I had the part, I revisited the videos and the rest is history. The installation of the two part drum bearing was a little challenging, and a second set of hands comes in 'handy', particularly if you're a woman and your arms are not 5 feet long. The handy hands also make the belt installation SO much easier. Worked the first time!!! Thank you Partselect for empowering the consumer!! This repair would have probably cost me $500+ and my dryer would not be as clean and quiet as it is now. Thanks again -- Petra

It took me longer to find the parts I needed. You have diagrams all through out your website, but no part # assigned to them. I got really frustrated seeing the parts I needed on the diagram, but not being able to find them. I finally called customer service and they were very helpful in getting what I needed. I just watched the video that was sent with my receipt and it was the easiest thing in the world to fix.

Clothes were getting caught and it was tearing holes in the clothes. Dryer was also making a loud noise.

Very squeaky dryer

My Dryer was squeaking like no ones business and eating our clothes. I did a little research and found the problem. The drum glides had worn out. So I order the set of 2 white and two grey. I was a expecting a 4-5 day wait, but to my SURPRISE got here the NEXT DAY. I found A helpful video from parts select on youtube and I had the driver apart in 5 minutes and ready to replace the Glides only to find the dryer drum had worn away the plastic on the top drum bearing. So I would suggest checking to make sure the Top drum bearing is still in good shape before you order the Glides. Order top drum bearing (got here next day) and did the install. It took about 10 minutes. ***Word of caution**** be careful with the Main power board(the ones with all the resisters and micro chips) I ended frying mine. Some how when putting the dryer back together I pulled a resister loose and did not know it. when I plugged it in I smelled something funny, sure enough fried the circuit board. I had to order a new one @ $100.00 + Buda Texas customer EASY INSTALL ALL THE WAY very please with partselect

Googled possible problem where noise was coming from. Went to Parts Select web site. Ordered felt and drum bracket. Removed screws behind control knobs and removed top of dryer. Removed two screws on front inside dryer (left/right side) this allowed me to remove front panel of dryer. Unattached wires. Drum bracket is located above door opening...pretty much snaps out, felt piece is located on bottom bracket. Felt piece was replaced and new top bracket replaced. Reattach wires, lift drum slightly to fit doo iInto place. Dryer still made noise. Noticed I did not have any drum slides! Drum slides slide into top of front bracket at 10/2 o'clock position and 11/1o'clock. Easy and very inexpensive dryer repair!! My husband was very impressed that I could take dryer apart and fix!!!

The top bearing was completly wore through and shorted the light wiring,I took off the top and front of the drier. The bearing was attached to the front cover. Cleaned out all the lint and pit back together. Now no more squeaking.

squeaked & I had already replaced the parts once

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.

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.
