Just follow the excellent video at Partselect. Be careful placing the new blower wheel if the fit is tight. I chipped a piece off mine while tapping it on, but it still works fine. Excellent help with diagnosis, installation, and prompt service at Partselect. I put their magnetic business card on my refrigerator.

Broken belt on dryer

This is a straightforward repair that you can do in an hour or less. Open the lint trap and remove the two screws. Use a screwdriver to pop up the top of the dryer. Remove two screws that attach the front panel. Now you can lift out the drum and then lift off the front panel. Clean out all the lint. Make sure the motor pulley turns smoothly. Tilt back the dryer diagonally to make the rest go easier. Loop the new belt around the drum (rubber side down) and reinstall the drum against the back wall of the dryer. Make sure the cloth liner fits perfectly around the ridge, with no folds so the drum rotates easily. Make sure the drum fits smoothly against the two rubber positioning wheels on the back wall. Position the new belt around the center of the drum. On the dryer floor, stand up the tensioner bracket. Tricky part -- thread the belt so it runs through the bracket and loops around the drive pulley on the motor, rubber side against the pulley. The belt should be tight, held by the tensioner. Reinstall the front panel so the opening aligns with the drum opening. Drop the top down, snap into place.and reattach the screws in the lint trap. Done!

I opened the top with a putty knife and removed the two connectors to the front cover. I didn't have any tester to check sensors so I replaced them all. That didn't work. So I changed the coils on the gas valve and that fixed it. It was a lot better then the price of a new DRYER. Thank you for your help

Unplugged the power cord. Removed two screws on lint vent , used putty knife to release clips to raise top at front of unit. Disconnected the plug from front door switch. Laid dryer on its back. Removed two screws to remove front including the door. Vacuumed lint from inside unit. Installed belt temporarily using two pieces of masking tape to hold it in place while properly routing the belt.

To start off I am disabled so I had my 14 year old daughter to help me.I opened the top of the dryer,disconnected the door button and had my daughter help wire the top open and take off the front panel.We took this time to clean out the dryer for it was quite built up with lint.I then gave my daughter my cell phone and told her to stick it in the dryer to take pictures of the area we needed to work on.I then showed her the pictures and explained in detail how everything worked and what she needed to do.I then put the belt around the drum and she proceeded to put the belt on the pulley and tension rod.At this point we are both filty and both have gotten miner injuries.I spun the drum and it and the belt both spun,we thought GREAT we have fixed it,so we put it all back together,plugged it in and nothing.So we take it back apart,but this time I stick my hand in there and find out she didn't have the belt on the pulley,it was wrapped around the tension rod so I fixed that problem.Then I figured out that she hadn't pulled the tension rod over to its proper place so I do that as well.This time I spin the motor fan in front to make sure we have it right.We put it all back together, plug it in and it WORKS,so we throw the jeans in because we have to be at a B DAY party in a couple hours.The dryer buzzer goes off and we both go to check and the clothes are soaking wet.I open the top of the dryer and the brand new belt is broken.So many mixed emotions at this time I cant tell you how disappointed and upset we where.So she took her jeans out and used a hair blow dryer to dry them and I hung the rest all over the house.So I decide not mess with the dryer for a couple days because of my frustrations with it.We have to do laundry everyday,I have three teenagers,so I have clothes drying all over my house every day.Even went to the laundry mat once $40.00 it cost me.A couple days go by and I decide to see what happend. This time I have my 15 year old daughter help me.I completely disconnect the dryer from everything.We put it on top of A table and take it apart.What do I find?the motor pulley is broken and has jagged edges the shredded a piece of the new belt.As I mentioned earlier I am disabled and am on SS so I only get paid once a month and have no extra money so now I have to wait until the end of November to order another belt and the motor pulley.In the mean time there is wet laundry hanging all over my house with fans blowing on it to help dry it faster.So what was supposed to cost approximately $20.00 to fix is now going to total over $100.00.I do thank you for the speedy delivery of the dryer belt and we had A great time at the B DAY party.thanks

WORN OUT BROKEN DOOR LATCH

  • Customer: chuck from odessa TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I would like to say first of all that i was amaized and pleased at how simple the ordering of this part was and while looking at the parts diagram on you website i noticed the door swing was optional and could be easily changed and the dryer came from the factory with a latch installed on both sides of the door. In our laundry room the dryer sits to the left of the washer and the door to the dryer opened to the right which has always been a slight inconvenience... so instead of changing out the broken part, i took the door and hinge off with my cordless screwdriver (6-8 screws) and turned it around and remounted it on the opposite side... SIMPLE! I never took the new part out of the UPS envelope. Now i have a spare so i taped the new part in the envelope to the back of the dryer in case i ever need it and now we have more convenience with the door swinging the correct way. Sweet deal! took less than an hour. Thank you for making this task simple. Chuck G.

Dryer drum would not turn

I researched the issue, found a video and ordered the belt, which came in 2 days. It was inexpensive, and I had my dryer back and running in less than 3 days. I did get my son to help me as it might not be that easy with just 1 person (to hold the drum in place while putting the front back on). Great service and great information on how to do the repair.

When we ordered the part we watched the video, to see what needed to be done and both my husband and I got the dryer all ready for install before part came so when the Ups delivery came it took all of 10 min to get it back up and running! Thank you so much for having the details and a video made thing go so well! Sincerely Dawn

broken belt

I loved the demo video on how to do the repair-it was very helpful. My dryer was different than the one on the video, and I had to make adjustments ( I had self tightening screws on the top and bottom of the front panel and then I stripped the screws)I did this by myself and I had to prop up the drum AND the front panel with items in laundry room.) That's why it took me longer than demo (also had to run to hardware store to get screws). Felt great to accomplish this by myself. Thanks!

I know now that I did not have to get in the back of the machine. Only lift top remove two screws for the front and lift off.The most diffcult was determing how the idler and belt went in but if you hold it in position it becomes to you. Thanks for all your help you run a good ship.
