REPLACE DRIVE BELT

What a pain in the butt to route the belt thru the tensioner! There's room for only one hand in there. The guys who do this for a living must have some secret. My solution was to drill a 3/16 hole thru the side, make a J-hook from 8-32 threaded rod, use that and a wing nut to pre-load the tensioner, route the belt, then slowly back off the wing nut until the belt was tight. It works....

Dryer was making a noise upon starting and periodically in each cycle. My husband took off the front panel and discovered the blower wheel was breaking apart. I went online and found this site, ordered, and it arrived a couple of days later. Very easily installed with the aid of a rubber mallet to push it firmly against the connecter point in the dryer.

At first I thought I had the wrong part. But a quick call to the service number solved the problem. Seems the only part now available is a double wide strip with two sets of molded clips. Simple solution was to pull the strip apart into two. Worked like a charm.

After ordering the part, I read the information left by other users. I used a screw driver to pop out the piece, and then put the new latch in the opening. A gentle pop with the side of my hand, and the door latch went right into place. Who knew there was a second door latch on the other side that could've been used?

Push new catch in the opening, close the door and VOILA! the door stays closed. Please note that the cost of this part is exorbitant- it's worth about 50 cents but with shipping it cost about $11.00. Check your local hardware store first.

Identified the rollers as the root cause of the drum not freely rotating. They also squeaked a little at the beginning of any cycle. I replaced the rear rollers and shafts using the parts from the roller replacement kit. Easy to do. The hardest parts was re-installing the belt.
