Shut off the gas supply and unplug the electrical socket. Unscrew the front of the dryer, and remove also the front face with all the controls, Easy to disconnect, just to plastic sockets. Remove the drum and find the location in the bottom right of the dryer. Remove to secure screws and the electrical connectors (two more sockets) each one has one.

I didn't know what was wrong at first, only that the dryer would not start. I bought it used so had no fear of taking it apart to diagnose. Found the broken belt inside, ordered a replacement, installed the new belt, then crossed my fingers. Was pleasantly surprised that was all that was wrong and that for less than $20, including shipping, a few hours of my time, and a little help from YouTube videos the dryer is working again!

Simply popped the old broken part out and popped the new part into place. I wasn't sure if it was the Latch Door or the Door Strike. Once the parts arrived, it was clear the Door Strike was not the issue.

Rear Drum Bearing and Drum Slide Bearing .......

  • Customer: Charles from Rock Island IL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Well, I purchased this dryer new in 1993, and the rear bearing went bad the winter of 1997. It was late at night, the parts warehouse was closed, and a new rear bearing back then was $25 which I didn't have, but I had skills and a brass garden hose quick disconnect fitting I modified. Well, 17 years later (Jan 2014) the brass bearing wore out along with the Drum Slide Bearing and its TEFLON slides. I've had this dryer apart every two years for a thorough cleaning up until 3 years ago.We moved to a newer home and this unit was the last thing on my list. So taking it apart and putting it back together again was a snap. The total repair would have taken only an hour, maybe an hour and a half, but due to parts on order, it took 3 days. Anyway, it got its cleaning, the new parts installed and fired back up in under 75 minutes. I figure I've got another ten years of use coming from it. If this is your first time repairing this or any other appliance, all I can say is take your time, and if your memory is short, use that cell phone camera or any other digital camera you might own and photograph, photograph, photograph. Record everything. And keep it on file. I've posted photos on my FB page for the women I know that are single or whose husband needs help with these fixes. Keep your dryer clean. Set up a schedule for every other year to dismantle and thoroughly clean the unit. The worse thing to happen is a dryer/lint fire. And believe me, there are areas where lint accumulates that don't go into the lint screen and you can't reach with a brush.

Squeaking from drum rubbing on the plastic top support

  • Customer: Michael from Peachtree Corners GA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
First ordered the "bearing" strips (before I opened the front of the dryer and saw that the plastic housing the strips mount on, was already being reduced to the thickness of paper, as the drum was rubbing on it - bearing strips were long gone, (I should have addressed problem as first sound of squeaking). Went back on line, and ordered the upper support housing (approx $40). It arrived next day - although I didn't request that delivery charge / method. Put the previously ordered bearing strips on it, and Installed it relatively easily (after vacuuming the entire interior of the dryer). Nice and quiet now. Found receipt and owner's manual. It's 20 years old. Would rather fix it, than replace and have in landfill. It seems like it has a few more years in it. P. S. helped to watch a YouTube video on taking off the front piece of the dryer.

Make sure your power is off, When loosened the top and tilted back, the first thing I saw was the door switch, I guess I was just lucky I disconnected the two wires and checked it and it was bad. Got my new one from you and installed it. It has a ground terminal, which my model switch only had the two terminals. It working fine.I took the bad switch apart and the one leg on the copper U shaped contact had broken off. The Belt I have as a spare.
