Removed two small screws on door edge, pop out broken part, insert new part, replace screws. Took 2 minutes 18 seconds. Nice to have various door catches in the Kit. This was a repair on a 1979 Whirlpool Dryer. Great price & service!!

The videos really make it easy. I put my laptop on the washer next to my dryer and proceeded step by step. I also found the video that mentioned about the screws that may come loose on the baffles. I found several loose screws on the baffles which I tightened and I also found the Drum hole plug loose, so I also tightened the plug. Reassembled the unit and has been working like new since.

Simply slid new idler wheel on then popped thr tri ring on. The belt replacment was the hardest thing which was also easy. I think pulling the dryer away from the wall was the most difficult thing.

Upon receipt of the new vent kit, I removed the dryer from its location and took it in to the garage. This facilitated a roomier work space. The directions were easy to follow and the work to be performed was very easy in this setting.

Extremely easy! you can do this too. Just watch the video and have the few basic tools the video suggests. I am not skilled in repair at all. This part was shipped very fast and everything I needed was on the site. The hardest part was cleaning up the lint, seriously. Don't spend $100+ for a repair person to come to your home. This task is simple for anyone, any skill level.

This appliance is 14 years old. I debated whether or not if worth to be repaired. I decided to repair it since a new one of comparable model is about $600. Firts, Disconnect the appliance. Remove the control panel side covers and unscrew the screws in the bottom, (one on each side) Flip the control panel up. Now you have access to the 3 screws that hold the drier top on place. Remove the 3 screws and slide the panel towards you and lift standing on the front of the appliance. Set the top aside. The fron bottom panel is attached with two clips on top and hinges on two bottom clips. With a potty knife or flat screw press in each top clips and pulls the cover towards you and lift that will removed the cover. Next, un screw the two screws in the bottom of the top front panel. Disconect the wires of the close door switch. I usially take a picture of the connections before discconnecting anything so I can use as reference when putting it all together again. Remove the two top screws. Remove the spring of the door (two, one on each side), remove the lint trap. Be careful if you open the door after you remove the springs and make sure whne you close the door is snaped in the close position. Remove the front top panel. Next, remove the blower cover (two screws on the front of it, Remove the blower ring ( two screws) Remove the belt by pushing down the spring loaded pulley and sliding the belp to the side. Grabing the tub by the belt carfully lift it and slide it out from the drier enclosure. Using a 1/2 in socket wrench place it in the center of the blower and hold the motor shaft at the other end by the pulley using adjustable wrench. Unscrew and remove the blower. Remove the back cover of the blower (4 screws) Discconnect the motor harness and unclip the two clips holding the motor to the mount bracket. Remove the motor and replace with the new one. Follow these instructions in revers order. It was very easy and my drier is working great now. I inspected the belt and pulleys and lubricared all moving components and of course cleaned and vacum all debry and lint. I hope these instructions help you and good luck :)

Dryer door would not close and latch on both catches w/o pushing them shut individually.

Our make/model was not on the online instruction, but it was similar. Ours had a glass (plastic)front window in the door. To remove the top catch you had to take out the top four screws that hold the door together (philips head screws) allowing you to pull back the gray plastic strip to access the top latch, then replace it like in the online directions using a needle nose pliers. The bottom catch, once the two remaining the screws were out gives you access to the bottom catch. Remove it with the pliers and snap the new ones into place. You can completely take out the window when you replace the bottom latch if you want.

Easy to follow videos on your site made this repair a breeze. I ended up having to replace the high temp cutoff as well but for 60 bux my dryer works like new. The repair man wanted $100 just to come look at it. Could not have done of without the easy to follow video.

(Always unplug dryer before making any repairs) I opened the dryer and checked the heating element. Making sure that the connection was good and nothing was damaged, I determined the problem was overheated wires. They melted and lots connection. I replaced them with the heating element wire connection kit. Easy to install and simple to get right. I cleaned the dryer again with a vaccum cleaner, removing all the lint, and checked the vents, making sure they were clear...I turned the breaker on (it was tripped when the dryer overheated)and everything worked great.
