Watched the video on this website, did same. I would have broken more parts than I repaired, were it not for the easy to follow step-by-step instructions on the video.

This was real easy just slid the latch in front panel and attached to latch assembly to the door. The repair was about 45 seconds.

Squeaking Tumbler

My first thought was to replace the drive belt. I followed the excellent how-to video and, once inside, discovered that the belt was fine and that the right-hand drum roller was worn out and squeaking when I rotated it by hand. I should have listened to the other customers who said I should replace the drum support rollers at the same time as the belt. I did a thorough lint cleaning, put the dryer back together and ordered one roller replacement kit. It arrived in a just few days. I was able to lift the drum off the rollers and replace the bad roller without having to remove the drive belt. It took under 1/2 hour. There was only one omission in the video: I had to remove two metal tabs that hold down the dryer lid. Just one screw on each side. Recommendation: Purchase a pair of snap ring pliers. They make removing and reinstalling the the snap retainer ring a breeze in a tight working space.

First: Which of two thermostats is it? The high-temp thermostat serves an emergency purpose: if all else fails. The cycling thermostat takes care of the clothes. So I selected the cycling thermostat. Second: Remove two screws and lift the front panel forward, up to 45 degrees and off. Third: this thermostat is in the center, near the bottom, in the blower casing. Remove the shield in front of the blower. The thermostat is right there, with easy access. Fourth: Leaving wires on old thermostat, two screws remove the thermostat. Screw on new one. Shift wires one at a time from old to new, to keep them untangled.

After fearing that I would have to call a repairman or buy a new dryer, I took the model number off my dryer and went on line for replacement parts. I found your site and worked my way through the parts that I would need. The video showing how things are done was very helpful, eventhough this was a simple repair it was nice to see how to make the repair and helped confirm that I understood what I was doing. Thank you.

It was the wrong size part but we needed to dry a lot of wet clothes expecting it to work, it was too big to fit. Eventually cut off the sides and allowed it to drop in the lint filter slot but with no support on the sides, allowed me to dry the clothes but still must search for the correct part.
