The repair went just as the self help video showed on your web site. Since I was replacing front air duct assembly, and had unit disassembled I figured on replacing upper portion, bearing slides (as recommended) and lint basket. Now it as good as new. Thanks for the help!

Timer knob would not stop or start the dryer in the correct place. Looking at the back of the knob, the D ring was cracked.

Bought both the knob and metal insert clip. Turns out that the clip was unnecessary as the knob came with the clip. The repair was quite simple. Simply pull out the old knob and insert the new, taking care to align the D.

I grabbed the broken knob firmly and pulled it straight off. I took the new knob and pressed it firmly into place.

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.

Reviewed problems with the dryer on line and ordered the parts. The only problem is that it takes two types of slide bearings which I did not order correctly. The video was great and had no problem installing the parts.

Hardest part was rustling up the proper screw driver. 1) Unplug dryer from outlet. 2) Pull plastic knobs off all switches. 3) Remove screws and remove control panel. 4) Remove rotary switch by gently prying up on hold-down arm and twisting entire switch mechanism. 5) Remove wires one at a time and attach to corresponding spade lugs on new switch. 6) Install switch and twist into place. 7) Replace panel. 8) Replace control knobs. Under 20 minutes.

Loud stretching

My dryer was making a loud stretching sound which I thought, because of previous experience, could be fixed by replacing the bearing slides. The problem turned out to be that the blower wheel that is attached to the motor was loose. I pushed the blower wheel all the way in so that about 1/4" of the motor shaft sticks out. I then tightened the bolt with a socket wrench. Problem solved.

The noise is gone

Very easy to remove the front and top with a total of 4 screws as per the video. Removing the old piece was easy. The only hang up was putting the new piece on and it wasn't fitting snug. I then realized there was a lip that should sit around the dryer door open. Once I did that it fit perfect and was a matter of putting the screws back.

Dry squealed so loud you needed ear plugs!

first, I watched the helpful videos. I then removed the screws that are located inside the door and screws from for top panel to remove front and top panel. When I opened the front panel I saw that the front drum bearing was half destroyed from the years of drum rubbing. I Replace front drum bearing and slides and now dryer sounds like a brand new quiet dryer.
