When I went home at Christmas, I saw that my Mom had been using a small bench to keep her dryer door shut. I wrote the make / model of the dryer down and found your website. I ordered the part, and my sister snapped it into place. My mom was so happy to have her dryer door stay shut again!

My husband replaced the rotary start switch that we bought. However, the dryer still would not start. He then tested each remaining switch/dial (before we spent more money on parts) to see if the dryer would start if the electrical connection by-passed that part. None of the top panel switches was the culprit. Then he pulled the door switch. The dryer worked with the switch out, but still connected. He reset each wire, put the door switch back in place, and it failed again. He pulled the switch, added electrical tape to all the connections, and put it back. The dryer works fine now.

After reading comments made by other customers, I ordered the timer and it arrived 3 days later. I used a star bit with the electric screw driver to open the top of the dryer. I removed all the dials and pulled open the top cover of the dryer. I carefully lifted the "tang" that kept the timer in place and turned the timer clockwise. I then used my cell phone camera and took picutres of all the connections so that it would be easier to reconnect the wireing to the new timer. I disconnected the wiring from the old timer and reconnected them to the new timer. I inserted the tang place in place and rotated the time timer counter clockwise. I then placed the cover back on, inserted the star screws and tighten them down. I put back all the dails and the dryer is working perfectly since. Took about 30 mins. I'm very pleased with the delivery of the timer and the ease of the installation. I will use Part Select as my sole supplier for all future repairs on my appliances. Part Select is Number 1 in my book!!!!

Dryer squeaking

Removed top - 2 screws. 2 more and the front comes off. I left the wires connected, and leaned the front against the wall. I then popped the drum bearing, with the slides off of the front, and pulled the felt from the lower half. I took some extra time cleaning lint with a shop vac. I then assembled the new parts back onto the front, and pulled the felt into position - it was a little fussy getting it right. The front panel and the top go back, and it`s done. I am glad I ordered the drum bearing, as the felt was worn much more than I would have guessed. This job could probably be done in 15 minutes next time, not including lint clean-up.

Pulled out the remnants of the old latch out with the pliers and then popped the new one in...less than 2 minutes. Oh, and the part was delivered in less than 2 days. Great job, Partselect !

Noisy running, slow turning dryer

  • Customer: Laura from Sonora CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 3 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
I took off the top panel and ran the dryer. I watched as the drum turned more and more slowly until it stopped. I turned it off, and unplugged it.
I took off the front panel, simply swinging it to the left like a gate so I didn't have to disconnect any wires, then pulled out the drum. I should have taken the belt off the pulley idler first!
Got the drum out and could see the broken idler wheel and the groove on the drum's back post for the O-ring. There is a silicon sheath that goes on this back post - don't lose it if it is still good or you'll have to buy another.
Getting the idler wheel off the stem was as simple as using the pliers to turn the nut until it came off. I put the new one on, then put the nut back on. I adjusted the position of the idler pulley so that the belt would not be out of line with the pulley on the motor - I just eye-balled it.
I slipped the belt around the drum, put the silicon sheath back on the drum post, then put the o-ring in the groove on the post.
Put the drum back in the dryer, lining up the post to go back in the hole was a challenge.
Then, getting the belt back on the pulley needed a little muscle to apply the tension needed to allow the belt to get into place. I had one hand in each opening on each side of the drum and did it by feel.
I put the front panel back on and did a test run. The drum was turning with force now, not slowing down nor easy to stop by applying resistance with my hand. It was also much quieter.
Put on the top panel and done!

Dryer made a squeaking noise while running

  • Customer: Kevin from East Peoria IL

I removed several torx srews across the back control panel. Removed two philips screws under top of front dryer door. Pulled up on top surface of dryer case. Removed two more screws on backside of front door panel. Pulled front door panel forward and inserted drum slides into slots that they just popped into with a small button rod to keep them in place. The old drum slides were completely worn down or fell off. It runs like a new one again. It is over 10 years old.
The new door handle just snapped into place.
Original door handle had been broken off for several years.

Dryer squeaked like crazy for at least half a year!

I read the other repair instructions on this site and looked at the parts diagrams. It wasn't entirely clear how everything came apart but once I started by unscrewing the top of the dryer and removing it (screws were just inside the dryer door) it was easy. Unscrewed the front panel next , swung it out, and it was quick work to install the new bearing with the slides. It wasn't too clear in the parts diagrams but I did need two each of the dryer drum slides and front dryer drum slides, four total, two on each side of the drum bearing. The dryer had been running on the old drum bearing itself, the old slides had worn completely down and the bearing itself was starting to disintegrate too. If I'd caught it sooner I could have reused the bearing and just replaced the slides. Saved a lot of $ and the dryer is nice and quiet again!

timer doesn't move

It was amazingly simple and I am not even a handy man by any means. The only difficult part was pulling the cable connections as they are a bit tight. I was glad that I could accomplish this task for which the repair person was demanding $120.
Most of these things are doable it's just that common folk are just too scared to even try them out. I figured rather than going out to buy a new dryer for $500 ( and if my wife had her way, $1000) I could give it a shot for $80.

First remove top cabinet panel by removing two small screws under door recess; then swing up lid and remove from hinged area at the rear. Once top panel is removed, remove the front panel and door assembly by removing two attach screws securing front panel to dryer cabinet. Swing the front panel down and remove from two base hinge points. Slightly lift the front of the dryer drum and wedge some rolled up newspaper between drum and frame to provide access to get your hands through to the idler pulley and motor area. Remove the belt form the motor & idler pulley; then slide the drum out of the cabinet to gain access to the idler pulley. Remove nut securing idler pulley from bracket and remove and replace with new part. Reverse the process to complete the installation.
