Used repair video as guideline, I did not have their lab conditions to work in and by no means a clean machine. Also I had a two part front panel vs. single as in video, so disassembly and reassembly were OJT."on job training". Video was however very usefull in locating problem, getting correct part and accomplishing the repair. Saved $$ and machine is now working properly again. Am saving this web-site to my favorites list.

I watched your repair video and followed what the repair man said and did, it was a snap! I needed my dryer fast so decided to do it myself. I am a 65 year old female and petite, so I say if I can do it anyone can. Your video was the key to my sucess.

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.

You know -- you take it out and clean it every time you do a load of laundry. The old one had holes in it, so we bought a new one. It fit. End of "repair."
