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. Gave the tub a full turn to insure alignment.. Reinstalled the front of unit with the two screws. Righted the unit and snapped down the top. Replaced the two lint vent screws. Plugged it back in and done! Piece of cake!

Noise in dryer when first starting up

Turn off power. Move dryer away from wall and release the top by lifting up to release the two clips. Lay top against the wall. Remove the two screws, one in each corner, left and right inside the cabinet. Lift front panel up and out away from dryer. Place along right side of dryer. You may need to unlatch the wiring for the door switch. Reach inside the bottom of dryer and release the belt. Lift the dryer drum out along with the belt. Observe the two guide rollers that the drum rides on. Using a blade screw driver release the clips that hold the rollers onto the spindles. Clean up around each spindle. Install new rollers in reverse order and put all back together. The hardest part is reinstalling the belt. Put belt around the drum, around the motor pulley and then onto the tension roller. Good luck..

I unplugged the dryer then removed 2 Phillips screws from lint trap. Then I popped the top up on each top corner with a screwdriver. I removed the 2 screws holding the front cover. I unclipped the wiring connection and moved the panel. I took out the old belt, put the tensioned back on then put the new belt around the drum and held the drum up with my shoulder then put the belt through the tensioner and put it on the motor spindle by pushing the tensioner back. I put it back together and it worked perfectly. Your video was very helpful. Job was very easy.

The instruction sheet that comes with the parts is excellent. Follow it and all goes well. Be patient and stay away from the sharp sheet metal edges present in all such appliances !!

Belt on dryer drum broke

The repair on replacing the clothes dryer belt went great. Not only did Part Select send me the correct belt at a great price .. the helpful hints that other people gave was most helpful. The only glitch was when I was pushing the tensioner wheel to get the belt around the pulley it slipped and the spring came off. The instructions/tip of taking the drum out and how to replace it came in handy when I had to get the spring back into place. The belt finally went on but there was a slight twist in it by the tensioner wheel. Again the tip I got with my e-mail helped as I manually turned the drum and was able to right the belt. Kudos to the tips I received and the confidence I could do the job myself!!!!

It was the most easiest thing I had to fix in my house. I'm a single mother of three and constantly repairing things around my house on my own. When the timer knob broke I called a nearby appliance store and I couldn't believe how much they wanted to charge me. So, i went on line, found this fantastic website, ordered by timer knob and received it in two days. Took it out of the package and bam! Installed it within 10 seconds. I love those kind of repairs. Thanks PartSelect.
