Parts Select suggested the fix with a 99% rating that it was the drain pump motor. When I got the old pump out it was clearly not working. It took 4 days to get the part, but after getting the part it was just plug and play.

After watching the video to repair the glides my son and I began the process. After making the repairs and putting the dryer back together the drum would not turn. I told my son it had to be a bad belt He claimed it was not. After taking the dryer drum off we found the belt to be very brittle and worn. After calling around a shop that sold the part was found. Replacement was made and the dryer now runs like brand new. Thanks.

Getting a slight "thunk" or "chirp" when the drum shifts direction

I bought the new Lip Seal Kit thinking that the sound I was hearing had to do with it sticking inside the drum at the end a rotation in either direction. We had replaced the outer drum a few years back when the bearings went. Believe me, you will know when your bearings are going. It sounds like you are in the same room with a jet engine. I knew this sound was not from the bearings. I had the washer apart in about fifteen minutes...and yes, I am a 125 lb. female...so ladies, it is not an impossible task. I have taken that washer apart enough times before that it is no big deal. Just make a mental note as to how it goes back together....if all else fails one can look at diagrams online. My husband just stood there and said "nice job honey". After I got the old seals out and the parts cleaned up, I turned the bearings to make sure they sounded smooth. A-okay. I installed the new seal and smoothed molycote on the spider shaft; replaced the drum, front panels, etc; tightened the pulley with a torque wrench, belt on, etc. and.....turned on the washer. The sound is still there. Sooooo, I am fairly confident that it comes down to the belt and the motor isolators...mostly the isolators...belt is pretty secure. I am changing those tomorrow. Found someone on youtube with the same problem...only far worse...and a response posted said it probably was due to the isolators and belt. Our seal wasn't too fried, but I guess that it isn't a bad thing that I changed it anyway since it has been a few years and they do fail resulting in bearing damage. Better to catch it now. As for whether my machine is worth fixing at its age, I went shopping while this was going on and I don't trust anything out there to not have a multitude of problems. At least with my current model...that still looks like new btw...I don't have a learning curve to deal with on how to take it apart. And a great big shout out to my father who taught me how to dig in my heels and get my hands greasy!! Update: Replacing the motor isolators did the trick. Put on a new belt too as long as I had the back panel off again. Running like a champ!!

rear roller drum and shaft broken

  • Customer: Bill from Midlothian VA

  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Followed instructions on the you tube video included in the part selection of the PartSelect part ordering webpage. The video described replacing the drum roller and shaft, as well the dryer cabinet / drum belt / etc. removal to access the broken parts on my exact dryer. Individual parts were less expensive on other websites, and I could find the you tube independently, however, the instructions included from PartSelect, quick delivery and professional service from Part Select were worth the difference ! My first experience with PartSelect, but not my last.

First I took the front of the dryer off and removed the drum (of course, after disconnecting the power supply) Removed the belt and then the roller itself. I had to open a removable port on the back side to reinstall the belt but that was also very easy. The videos made it all seem soooo simple. Thank you.

Horrific Clanging Noise from Bearings' Disintegration

  • Customer: Cary from Spokane WA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Thanks to Partselect's accurate parts' lists, and installation video, along with others' posted installation trials, gained confidence to attack problem on my own (coupled with repair (or should I say, "replace")men's advise to trash machine). Bearings had basically disintegrated, causing inner tube to be out-of-alignment, and rub against outer tube. Would just like to add to what others' contributed, that I found Plumber's Tub Drain tool to work very well at knocking-out larger front bearing (was perfect fit to ID of bearing). Had to Dremel cut out rear bearing, but quite accessible from rear of machine. Otherwise, alot of cleaning from 13yrs. of useage. Thanks for everyone's assistance!
