Only tool need was a nutdriver. Removed back cover on control panel, pulled off indicator knob and 2 screws that held the timer in place. Removed color coded wires one at a time and hooked them up to the new timer one at a time to make sure they were on the correct connector. This took approximately one half hour tops.

Loud humming noise then motor would stop

  • Customer: Clarke from Lynnwood, WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

The dryer would make a loud humming noise and the seize up. I would reset the breaker and the dryer would run briefly and then seize up. I opened the dryer and cleaned out all the lint on the motor but it did not help. I spun the motor shaft and felt like a bearing inside had failed. I watched Steve in the video-he was awesome and made it all simple- and ordered the correct parts. I decided to replace the rollers, belt, and pulley as well as the motor. The repair is very easy-and worth it- EXCEPT one piece of advice. BUY the blower fan that attaches to the motor. Mine did not come off easily like in the video. The plastic shaft deteriorated under pressure from the wrench. I was forced to use a heat gun to melt/then cut the blower fan from the motor. It was not easy but don't let it deter you from the repair. I used a table vice but never could remove the remanents of the blower fan shaft from the motor. The repair was a snap after that. Great site for parts and help.

Remove the Lint filter screen from the dryer Remove 2 screws from lint filter housing, and top of dryer. Lift the entire top.(clips hold dryer top in place-dyou may have to carefully pry the top loose from the clips) Open dryer door and remove 2 screws from switch assembly on right side top of door opening. Remove switch by disassembling the wire connector. (pull apart) Then, connect the new switch assembly and align over the two screw holes on the dryer door frame with the switch trip arm in proper position. Insert the screws and tighten carefully.

Removed the old thermal cut-off and installed the new thermal cut-off. The thermastat was just a tad bit more difficult because I had an extra wire that i need to strip off and then crimp with a new connector. Once that was done I installed the new thermastat in the same spot as the old one.
