Part select made the repair soooo easy. The videos are VERY well done and "Steve" is a great teacher. I loved the fact that on the email confirmation, Part Select had attached the link to a video for each repair. My dryer works perfect now! Not to mention, the parts were much more affordable than buying from other parts providers on line and shipping was very fast.

The only tool used was a phillips head screwdriver. I removed two screws to lift the lid and two more screws to free the front panel, slid off the front panel, and had direct access to all 4 slides, replaced, reassembled, and good as new.

My dryer would run but not heat and the timer would not advance. PartSelect helped me determine that the heating element needed to be replaced. I have very little experience with appliance repair. I found this to be challenging but well worth it.

Low heat

  • Customer: Larry from Naples FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I bought the Heating Element and Housing together so that I would not have to stretch and run the coils and to save time!
1. I removed the two screws that hold the top down by opening the dryer door and removing the two screws at the top of the door opening. Then I pulled the top off.
2. Then I removed the two screws on the top inside of the dryer on the left right and took the front off.
3. Next I spread the dryer open a little and pulled the drum out while pushing the belt off the back of the drum.
4. Then I removed the screws to the sensors and removed them from the housing.
5. Then I removed the four screws holding the heating element housing to the back of the dryer and took it out and put in the new peace.
6. Do everything in reverse when putting the dryer back together.

The repair was performed in the laundry room which was large enough the handle all the parts when disassembled. I followed the video and it was perfect without any errors. The job was simple and even putting on the new belt without having the ability to see what I was doing. You'll understand when you view the video and perform the job. Just follow the instructions including using the newly supplied screw to tap the new holes.

Simply popped the old broken part out and popped the new part into place. I wasn't sure if it was the Latch Door or the Door Strike. Once the parts arrived, it was clear the Door Strike was not the issue.

Load noise,more with heavy loads

Your videos are very thorough. The only problem with your video is the failure to address drum felt retention. The new drum replacement felt is shorter than the original felt. If you install the felt as shown in video it will most definitely come loose and you will be doing your repair again. The original was long enough to double back and hook on the back side of the top bearing support. The newer version needs to be put through the last slot on the are both ends of ends of the top bearing support. You will have to compress the felt somewhat in order to work through the slots. this should give you enough retention to grip the drum felt and hold it firmly in place. Other than that the video is quite good. Thanks to Partselect for doing a great job. Most appliance repairs are not too bad to do.

Followed the video on this site but did not have to remove wires. Just stand in front and let the front panel rest on your leg while you replace the slides. Quick and Easy!!!!
