This repair is super easy. Take out the 6 phillips screws on the back of the control panel. Disconnect the timer wires and plug into the new timer--One wire at a time to make sure they fit into the same slots. Reinstall the timer and knob and back of the dryer and you are done. No need for a technican here. Save some $.

I arrive home to the dreaded news, "The dryer is broken, I simply turned it on and smelled smoke!"
I replied "What unbreakable item did you break today?"
She showed me the dryer, we did a sniff test, removed the front control panel and determined it was probably the start switch. We took a shot, went online and ordered the part required from the best source of information that we could find, partselect.com.
The part arrived within two days and we installed it within minutes of its' arrival and it only took about 10 minutes. Plugged it in and we are back in business. This beats even the Maytag repair man!

Dryer was making a super loud horrible sound.

I didn't do it, my husband did all the work. He showed me which parts he thought was making the noise, which was kind of obvious. The small drum slide was melted, or something, it was gone. So we first ordered 1 slide and drum bearing, which fixed the noise, but he noticed the other drum slides were "gone" so I ordered another 2 of those. The dryer is back to its old self, not making any noise. We really didn't know what the problem was until looking on the site and seeing the most common problem, and luckily we got it fixed. I was ready to buy another new dryer.....good thing hubby wanted to work on it before buying....saved tons of cash.

I had disassembled the door/drum assembly and found the problem - the drum slides were worn out. Tried lubricating- the noise came back. Checked the internet and parts select had the information and the parts. Ordered and the parts arrived 2 days later. Installation was easy - no more noise!

GE Gas Dryer. Read your problem solutions very carefully. My machine was squeaking in the front area. It was the front bearing. Make sure you order the large front bearing and the 2 sets of small plastic bearings. Dryer now works great. Problem solved in about 1 hour. It would have taken less time but the dryer is ina really cramped place. Thanks you saved me $700. That is great for $47.00 worth of parts.

Took dryer completley apart and cleaned all the lint out. Then reassemble up to the part that had to be replaced. The video instuction on how to replace some of the parts was excellent.

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.

Dryer making grinding noise

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!!!

After reading the tips on this website I ordered the timer and a new knob as the timer did seem to be frozen and the knob had broken. It was as simple as everybody described, only taking about 5 screws out and giving the old timer a twist to get it out. Rehooked up wires from old unit to new, set into place and closed up the hood/back of the dryer. Very simple repair, saved tons of $$, and I'm a chic. I love this site!

Unplugged dryer then unscrewed back of dryer. Removed knob on front. Twisted out timer motor. Carefully wrote down where each wire went. Individually reattached each wire to the appropriate post on new motor. Twisted motor back into place. Pushed knob on front. Closed dryer and tested. It worked like a champ! James
