The parts arrived the next day after ordering. While I was at work my wife surprised me and made the repairs. She said she just followed the part select installation videos and an hour later it was all done. Runs like brand new! Saved a load of cash. Thanks, Jerry and Tammy

1) Disconnect power supply. 2) Open dryer door to find and remove two screws through dryer top. 3) Proceed to lift front dryer top panel and tap rear of dryer top with hand to left to disengage tabs and remove dryer top completely. 4) Remove two screws through front panel. 5) Gently lift dryer front panel from base tabs to partial remove panel (careful of wires which remain connected) - pivot front panel to left with wires connected. 6) lift dryer barrel with left hand / reach under barrel with right hand to release belt from tensioner pulley (very easy one-hand maneuver). pull dryer barrel belt off tensioner pulley towards you, remove belt from motor pulley below. 7) lift/pull and remove dryer barrel and belt (flex side panels). 8) take picture of wire connection locations on heating element and remove wires from tabs two locations / 3 wires. 9) remove sensors 3 locations. 10) remove heating element and housing. 11) install new heating element / housing and reverse process. .....tip; belt tensioner pulley was biggest challenge at first because it was hard to see how it all worked and reach. once i realized i could force / lift the barrel up to gain better access it was much easier than trying to fit my arm through the one large available hole at bottom right (when looking at the unit). the tensioner pulley is opposite side (left when facing) and you would have to reach over the exhaust, etc.

Screeching Sound From The Front Of The Dryer

What I really like about this was that PartSelect embedded videos to install the parts in the confirmation email. Following that, I simply removed the top fitting, then the control panel and laid it aside up to. Loosened bottom 2 screws, removed the top 2 screws and the door was off. 2 out of 4 slides were completely gone and one was shredded. I was able to quickly get wires out of the harness, take the light out, remove the old bearing. I installed all 4 slides on the new bearing and put it in place. One note: make sure all of the wires are secured and the black box fits over the wiring box. Just slide the new bearing in place, and start re-assembling.

Noisy and took to long to dry clothes

After watching all the videos for repair, I removed the front door panel. Than located the slides and felt drum seal. All parts were very worn. All parts removed and replaced very easily. No more noise. Sensor working so much better.

Plastic melted onto diffuser, requiring replacement

My son ordered the part, but gave up installing it. We called in a professional appliance repairman because the dryer had to be partially dismantled to remove the drum and a belt so three sets of holes could be aligned to secure the replacement diffuser. My daughter had to lend a hand to hold one piece in place while the repairman threaded the screws because the drum was too deep for him to be able to reach both front and back pieces. Definitely not a one-person job for this particular model.

The dryer wasnt drying as fast and was making a lot of noise.

Followed the directions from the video about that particular part. I am 57 and it was fairly simple to do.

Very loud squeaks, especially on left side at front. Painfully loud.

Looked it up on here. Watched a guy do it on the video. Then ordered the parts. 3 days later I was fixing it. Dryer was stacked on top of the washer in a small closet. I thought about taking it down for easy access, but decided to leave it stacked. Using a small ladder and a mirror I was able to blindly remove the rear control panel cover screws.The screws for the top were easy to get at, and the top slid out with ease. Then the control panel screws came out, and the panel folded up over just like the video showed. I disconnected the door switch wiring, loosened (not removed) the lower front panel screws, then removed the upper front panel screws. Took the front panel off, not heavy but bulky, and set it on a bench. I proceeded to shop-vac all of the lint I could readily see. Then I recognized the problem. The 4 bearing slides were completely gone, and the plastic top bearing was worn down to barely paper-thin. Setting the new one next to the old one made me wonder how it lasted as long as it did with the noise. While I had it apart, I decided to remove the lower portion and lint trap and clean it out good. It's amazing how much lint gets trapped in there. Cleaned it out good, reinstalled it and the new top bearing and slides, installed the new felt seal, all very easy to do. Put the front panel back on the dryer and reinstalled everything. Ran it and was amazed at how quiet it was. Good as new, and I didn't have to pay the repairman. Everyone told me I may as well get a new dryer. Now my wife thinks I am even more cool than I was before. If you read this and have the same noise issues, I recommend buying the top bearing. I considered only getting the bearing slides, but after getting it apart it was nice to have the new top bearing already sitting there. Would have only taken 30 minutes but I spent a lot of time cleaning the lint out.

Very easy. Follow the excellant how to video on partselect website. I waited too long after squeal started. Had i not, i probably only would have had to replace the slides and the felt and it would have saved me $40.

Dryer Making Aweful screeching noises

I opened up the dryer, saw that the top bearing was worn, then ordered the parts. Once I got them I just replaced the wore parts following the video on partselect. Just for some context im a 21 year old female college student and my only tools are screwdrivers, and the only problem I had was getting my dryer down from the washer and putting it back up (I recruited a neighbor for that). You can do it! Trust me!

Dryer was squeaking and was getting worse.

Just jumped in at first with no instructions to find the problem then did a search online and found PartSelect. I did some research and found the uTube videos and the rest was very easy.

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.

Excessive noise while dryer drum rotating

The Felt Drum Seal actually fell apart and got pulled into the area between the drum and the front drum bearing. I pulled out the seal, looked at ps.com's schematics, and ordered the drum seal and the 4 bearing slides. I figured I might as well replace the slides while the top and front of the dryer were off. Previous postings and the video were very helpful. I did take off the dryer door (remove 2 screws and loosen 2 screws to take it off) to make it easier to remove the dryer front. Do watch the wires to the door switch and the light: gently move the dryer front just far enough from the dryer to get behind it. Install felt seal and make sure it is completely in the guides with flat side against the dryer front. Install bearing slides exactly the same way as the old ones: they just clip into place. Have a brush or vacuum handy to clean the channel from the dryer lint trap. Mine was full of lint. You will have to reach in and raise the dryer drum slightly to put it back on top of the front bearing as you reinstall the dryer front. Very easy repair for anyone with a small amount of mechanical ability. I estimate I saved the cost of a $150 service call ($75 to show up and minimum 1-hour of labor at $75 in my area). Thanks parts.com!

The repair was extremely easy to do. The video was perfectly done and described everything one needed to do in very simplistic details.
