I ordered the rear drum assembly on Monday evening and the part came on Wed at 11 am. I started the repair at 1 and finished at 3. It would have been faster, but my computer kept freezing during the repair video. The video was so easy to follow. I could have used longer arms or a helper, but I managed to get the job done by myself. Needless to say, my husband was thrilled. Great service. Thanks

Heating but drum not turning

With drum not turning, I removed rear access panel and confirmed that the belt was missing from the motor pulley. The instructional video provided by PS was extremely helpful. It made the job simple. Removal of drum thru front frame was the most difficult part which was relatively easy. Once the front panel and drum were removed, I could then see that the front drum top glide nylon/felt strip needed replacing which I then obtained.

Rear bearing was squeaking

Repair went just according to the video except to pull the drum out there was a plastic lock at the front of the dryer. It was held in by one screw and easy to take off. When I pulled the drum out the armature and spring that hold the belt tight fell off. I panicked a little, but easily put the pieces back in place. When I started the dryer for the first time it sounded odd but realized it was the sound of all the grease spreading itself around the bearing.

Used wiring diagram in back of machine control head. UNPLUG DRYER! Removed panel off control head and motor access cover at bottom of dryer. Tested door switch continuity first, then continuity from control timer to motor. Found open circuit on white wire. Opened top of machine (pops up at front) and found thermal limiter on back of machine was burned and caused open circuit. It's a little awkward to get to the screws with the drum in place. Use a 30º angle ratching 1/4" ratchet wrench with a magnetic #2 phillips bit.

I followed the video on your site which was very helpful and informative. The one thing that proved to be more difficult than it appeared in the video was reengaging the belt. Every time we tried to do it in the way the video showed, the tensioner arm would come off. The belt was very tight, even with that arm pulled back. We ended up just putting the drum part way in and then putting the belt on the arm and motor, and then stretching it over the drum. Perhaps because it was new, it was so tight. The rest was a breeze. Just followed the video. Was quoted $310 for this repair and I did it for $40! Thanks for your help and website! What a break in a terrible economy. You helped us out!

Raised the lid, removed 2 little screws,slipped the front panel off, disconnected the safety switch, vacuumed everything, slipped on the drive belt and reversed my way out. It was way more easy than filling a grease gun!

No real repair. The part of the knob that connected to the dryer was cracked. Therefore, the knob would not turn. The key was we found the exact part easily on this site, it was in stcok and we got it within 4 days. The transaction was great. Only bummer was the shipping cost was as much as the knob.

Two knobs were cracked and I had already replaced one or two of them before. They seem to crack very easily.
