I watch the videos, your company told me to go to on the internet when I received the parts. I could not believe how easy it was to change the parts' The videos make the job as easy as the video showed it to be. Your videos and parts are the best. Thank You Greg

This is the 2nd time I replaced the drum bearing in the past 2 years on my 16 year old GE dryer. I found the parts needed by the diagram and followed the how to video which was very helpful and easy to follow. My parts came in 3 days and I hope to get another few years out of my dryer.

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.

Hight pitch squeal in forward middle top section of dryer

Determined problem by reading other reviews. Parts came quick. Shipping confirmation contained installation video. Excellent idea. Followed installation instructions. I used care manipulating the plastic shield that protects the wiring during disconnect for front section removal. (old plastic is brittle) With front removed it's good opportunity to vacuum out everything that can't normally be reached. Installed Drum bearing and slides and reassembled front and top. Test run is quiet. Old parts were badly worn.

Dryer not getting hot

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.

Timer would not advance

Followed instructions shown in online video. Took back off and located timer. Transferred wires from old timer to new timer to not misconnect them. Only problem was twisting and removing old timer. On video tech twisted it off by hand. With factory installed timer that was impossible. Required the use of pliers. Twisting the new timer on was easy by hand. All in all the most time expended was in getting the tools necessary.

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!

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.
