Lint Chute and Lint Trap Seals had Deteriorated

  • Customer: Robert from Melbourne FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

The on-line instructions were excellent; however, the man doing the demonstration used a brand new machine - not one where the old seals had melted and dried out and required serious cleaning before attaching the new seals. The new seals went on easily and I am very happy with everything about this task. I am also glad I now know what that lint chute looks like, so I'll do a better job of keeping it clean in the future.

Complete disassembly and diagnosis

I am more fortunate than most because I have extensive mechanical repair experience and my father has extensive electrical repair experience...he read the schematic while I placed the probes in the appropriate locations...I completely disassembled, cleaned, replaced all maintenance parts (felt gaskets [front & back of drum], drive belt, foam gaskets on heat exhaust duct)...the culprit was found to be the Thermal Fuse but I also replaced the Cycling Thermstat just because I serviced the entire heat exhaust duct (it had a fair amount of lint in it after 14 years...all other sensors on the heater unit and switches (door switch & centrifical switch (you will never find this unless you take out the drive motor [it is inside the drive motor] were tested and found to be good...all dash controls / switches were found to be in good order also...Part Select is wonderful to work with...they said allow 5 days but the parts were here in 2...! Just a little help for all of you out there...putting the felt gasket on the back of the drum will test your patience...it is a little smaller than the drum and as you get near the end with the glue it is extremely difficult to get on...I would recommend having a lot of clamps handy to hold the portion that is already glued to drum in place and another set of hands to rotate drum while you are stretching on the remaining foot...! One other thing...if you don't want to go thru everything I did chances are quite strong that if the dryer does not restart (after first failing) I would say to just order the Thermal Fuse for the 9-10.00...it is a pretty safe bet this will be your problem...I believe the dryer will start / restart even if the heater unit is no good and or the Cycling Thermostat goes bad since that just senses humidity...? The switch and fuse on the motor are not replaceable here...my father had contacts to get those parts from the motor company but...one is designed to stop the motor if it becomes hot which in all honesty I think would be pretty rare...it is in an open area...the other switch inside the motor prevents the heater from heating up until the motor is spinning which inturn spins the exhaust fan which is a safety feature but again I think motor failure is pretty rare.

The dryer had no heat but would tumble

I Removed the rear panel. Then I used the instructions online to locate and test various parts and determined what was defective. I order the parts online and received them the next day. It took less than 30 minutes to do the repairs. The dryer works great.I will be using partselect.com in the future and would recommend them to anyone who is having problems with their appliance.

Banging and screeching noise when dryer was turned on.

We found great video instructions via youtube.com to give us an idea to what might be the problem even before we opened the dryer. Then we opened the dryer top and front door and then removed the belt and drum. We then saw that one of the drum wheels was worn and the rubber part of the wheel was warped off. Once we saw what part we needed we ordered them through PartSelect.com since their wonderful instructions helped us out. Once we received the part we easily removed the old drum wheels and installed the new ones...super easy! Then we had to put the drum back in with the belt. The only "difficult" part was looping the belt around the motor because there was a lot of tension. Once that was set we just put the door back on and then the top! I guess the only snags we had during the process was where exactly to remove screws or pry open certain places b/c every dryer is a little different. I just advice people to really look at their dryer and think about how it is held together instead of just unscrewing everything. We are so glad we found the partselect.com instructions via YouTube.com. We were ready to buy a new dryer but fixing the dryer ended up only costing us $30! Our dryer is so quiet now, just like it is brand new.

First I removed the lint screen from the top of the machine and then the 2 Phillip head screws that where located under the lint screen door. Next I used a Flathead screwdriver to lift the top of the dryer from the bottom and propped it up against the wall in back of my dryer, next i removed the two screws from the inside front corners of the dryer with a ratchet and the appropriate size socket. I then removed the bottom front panel of the dryer with my Flathead by prying it off at the clips once removed I had access to two screws near the bottom, i loosened them with my ratchet and socket, I pulled out the top of the front panel with the dryer door open as I supported the drum with my free hand. once I removed the front panel I then removed the drum and set it aside. I took this opportunity to vacuum out all the dust from the bottom of the machine and the burner. I then removed the screw from the bottom of the first drum support wheel then i pried the clip off the drum support wheel axle Pulled off a second clip that held the wheel in place then i removed the broken wheel. I removed the back clip which was already cracking i put on the new clip, the new wheel and then the second clip, long story short I replaced the other drum support wheel which was still good but since i had everything apart i went on and replaced it too. I then put the drum belt on the drum, and I positioned the drum in place and put the front panel back on i put the top screws back in then i routed the belt around the tensioner and put it back in place. I rolled the drum all away around while pulling the drum gasket out and placing it in its proper position before i tightened the rest of the screws i plugged the machine in and checked to see if it was working as it should it was so i unplugged the machine and tigthend everything after i put the machine back together i dried a load and while running i went into our bedroom and asked my wife "do you hear that"? She said "no" and asked me what was she supposed to hear. We purchased the dryer used about seven years ago and it never ran as quiet as it does now. Its so quiet you can actually hear a click and then the sound of the burner kicking in.

I made it very difficult. I didn't research the repair. My back is old. It's easier if you just You Tube a video. The top roller you have to take drum completely out. The bottom one, The one that failed for me, you can actually do it without taking anything apart. Access it at bottom back, two holes. I do not have small hands, it would have been easier. Channel Locks inside, 9/16th socket outside. That will loosen main axle. Then use short screwdriver or socket driver on small bracket connected to bottom of unit. Mine had one screw holding it in. Easy bottom fix. I don't really recommend replacing top till it needs it. You can only buy them by the pair too. You will be ready when time comes. I found top roller didn't actually need replacing, did it cause I had it all apart. Don't fix if not broke, right? Trust, BUT, Verify. Smaller hands, would have helped me. All I got.
