I don't have specifics although they were emailed with my order confirmation and were perfect. I have dealt with PartsDirect multiple times over the years and have always been more than satisfied with their speed of shipment, quality of parts, and stellar instructions(even video most times). With PartsDirect, you never have to buy another appliance.

Clothes getting hot, but not getting dry

Verified that the heater element was working; drum and contents were getting hot. Could hear the thermostat clicking on/off as the element started to glow. Drum stayed very steamy the entire time; consistent with no airflow. Fan motor was running, dryer vent/line were clear. Verified cold (not hot) air from the external vent. Seals had degraded to the point that the fan was not drawing air from the drum, but from inside the dryer cabinet at the lower seal (by the fan blades); hot air was escaping from the upper seal and was causing the dryer cabinet to get unusually hot. Installed these 2 seals, and the dryer is working perfectly now.

Broken Belt Tub wouldn't turn

TURN OFF POWER TO DRYER............................. Pay attention to where everything is as you take it apart, so it can be put back the same way. Take out the two screws by the lint screen. Use flat tip screwdriver between space in front of top to help lift top. Use rag on tip of screwdriver so as not to scratch it. Take out two screws inside the front panel at the top. One on each side. Unhook the switch wiring. Lift up the front panel to take off. The tub will be loose, so it can be taken out to inspect other components. Some call the tub a drum. Be sure to see how the belt tensioner is attached, so it can be put back on the same way, if it comes loose. It is under the tub. Take out old belt. Put new belt around tub. Make sure the tub sets on the two rollers in the back of dryer. While holding tub, put the belt around the grooved pulley on the motor. Grooves are face down against the tub. Feed belt through the tensioner. Put the bottom of front in on the tabs. Be sure belt is still in place around pulley and tensioner etc. Hold tub through front door and close front. Put the two screws back in on each side. Close top and put the two screws in at the lint screen. Done. Turn power back on. Turn on dryer to see if it operates properly. If not, check out your repair to see if everything is connected properly.

Door switch broken, light out

Very easy replacing these 2 parts. Simply unscrew the 2 screws under the lint trap on top and pry open the front top of the dryer (it'll open like a hood on a car). Then just unscrew the 2 screw holding the switch on by opening the dryer door and unscrewing on the switch- unplug the old switch. Installation reverse of removal! For the light, just 1 screw takes the pate off and screw the light in like a night light bulb-- EASY!

Drive belt very warn, not broken

I removed screws for the lint screen - TOP. Pry up top with screw driver. Disconnected inside top front 2 screws, removed door control wires, white and blue. Lift off front of dryer. Tip dryer back about 40 degrees against wall. Remove warn belt (not broken). Relocate idler bracket on the cabinet base, follow diagram which comes with the belt package. Be very careful that the belt is NOT on the side of the idler roller. I had to do this install a second time, because I had it wrong the first time. Even though I've done this repair 5 or 6 times, there's always a first time GOOF. Not really a hard job.
