Pulled front off dryer, popped the top up, took belt off pulley, pulled drum up and out just far enough to pull element out and put new one in. Very easy and quick. PartSelect always sends good quality parts and very quickly. I will use them for all my repairs.

Dryer was making a squealing noise

  • Customer: Trever from Vancouver WA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The repair video from PartSelect.com was excellent in describing how to fix the dryer. All of the parts were included in the replacement kit, including the screws and ball bearing. I was very impressed with the quality of the kit and the video. A $25 kit probably saved me hundreds in repair cost and saved me from having to buy another dryer. Here's to another 14 years of use!

Loud Racket couming from the bearing casing

  • Customer: Jason from Champaign IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Ordered the part from PartSelect.com. It came in a couple of days, which was nice. My wife was all over me to fix the dryer, or buy a new one. Needless to say, I didn't think the old one was done. The bearing assembly had an instructional video. This provided easy to follow instructions, and simple advice even I could follow. Everything went well, and the dryer is now quietly running as good as new. Awesome website, and the customer service is excellant too. WE use PartSelect.com at work all the time. Im a property manager, and the parts and advice save us thousands every year. Thanks guys!

The dryer made a clunking noise as it was turning

  • Customer: John from Largo FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I used the PartSelect website to diagnose and repair the dryer. The video shown was a different model. Mine is a front loader. I just had to figure out how to get the top and front panels off myself. I just took my time as to not break anything. Once I did that the video showed me how to remove the belt tension and remove the drum and belt together. The hitch pin was a little different so I called to make sure the parts were OK. I then vacuumed out the cabinet installed the parts, the drum, reset the belt tension and then the covers. It sounded sweet when I started it up. Mission accomplished! $41 vs. a couple of hundred I suppose.

Drum noise

  • Customer: Les from Anderson SC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Disconnected and moved the unit outside, just to clean the lint out of it. Removed the top, then two screws holding the front panel on. Disconnected the two door switch wires. Peeled off the old upper seal and cleaned surface with wire brush. Applied the supplied glue and clamped the new drum guide in place. While it was setting up, I cleaned out the entire inside of the dryer to eliminate the old trapped lint. Replaced the front panel and mounting screws. Reattached the wires and closed the top. Relocated back inside and plugged it in and reconnected the vent tube. Turned it on and it worked perfectly.

squealing, very noisy dryer!

  • Customer: Vern from Sedalia MO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I used the video, and it helped me a lot! I got the drum out, installed the new bearing, greased the new shaft and the receptacle, then I reassembled. When I tested it, mine was still very noisy, so I removed the drum once more and cleaned/added some grease on the tensioner bearing. This was the cause of the noise in my case, but the bearing & housing were nearly shot, so something would have given out very soon. I would suggest to grease the tensioner the first time to save time and effort. (And save some of the grease for the tensioner pulley). SAFETY TIP: there was also a ton of lint that got trapped inside the unit!!! Clean your dryer once per year to prevent it becoming a fire trap!

Loud squealing while drying

  • Customer: Brian from Brier WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

The consensus seemed to be that the loud squealing was most likely the rear drum bearing needing to be replaced. Although the repair went very well (great video!), it did not fix the problem. BEFORE you go the route of replacing the rear bearing, first pop up the top and see if a little piece of plastic that is attached to the top middle of the front panel by a screw is rubbing against the drum (you have to have a load going). I removed this part (I could not find it listed on any parts list) and the squealing stopped. I have no idea what the purpose of this part is, except for maybe keeping the drum from dropping too far down if the load is really unbalanced. This plastic part is on the dryer that has the controls on the front (it has the ability to be stackable) and might not be on the other unit that has the controls on the top back. If anyone has posted this as a possible cause of the squealing, I haven't seen it.

impossible to get to the screws without dropping them.the only way to replace the part was to over drill the holes and install from the rear of the dryer using small bolts and nuts.got bad cuts and scrapes from the sharp edges on the cabinet. after all this , it is still over heating. ordered the other part to fix and it looks like the front of the dryer has be taken off and the drum removed to fix it
