It was as easy as the repair film said it was . But after spending the money for the upper and lower baring seals I put it all back together and the motor started making a loud noise ? I took the drum and everything out and started the motor without the drum just the motor was running and the danged motor is going out now !I checked the price of a new motor its not to bad but with all of the parts I have put in this thing I could have paid part of what it would have cost for a new dryer ! I put it all back together and hope it last long enough to at least recoup some of what I have spent ,But the new parts work good !

Followed instructions shown in online video. Took back off and located timer. Transferred wires from old timer to new timer to not misconnect them. Only problem was twisting and removing old timer. On video tech twisted it off by hand. With factory installed timer that was impossible. Required the use of pliers. Twisting the new timer on was easy by hand. All in all the most time expended was in getting the tools necessary.

The replacement handle, though it didn't look like the handle it was replacing, fit perfectly. Simply put the 'hinge' parts in place and then snapped the handle right onto the dryer; a perfect fit. Same for the filter - removed the old one, took out the remaining lint/dust and replaced the filter with the new one. Took no time at all, and works beautifully.

The repair went just as the self help video showed on your web site. Since I was replacing front air duct assembly, and had unit disassembled I figured on replacing upper portion, bearing slides (as recommended) and lint basket. Now it as good as new. Thanks for the help!

The plastic grid behind the lint filter started cracking with pieces breaking off. This caused delicate clothes to get tangled and twirled on the broken pieces.

I watched the installation video a of couple of times and followed the instructions. Two screws under the dryer door then the top comes off. Then two screws hold the front on come out. Unplugged the two wires to the switch. Removed the duct assembly. Cleaned up the door and snapped in the new duct assembly. Re-installed the door and then the top. Everything was easy - just like in the video.

Reviewed problems with the dryer on line and ordered the parts. The only problem is that it takes two types of slide bearings which I did not order correctly. The video was great and had no problem installing the parts.

We watched the video of how to take the dryer apart and how to install the thermostat...after watching the video it was pretty easy

melted plastic on diffuser

  • Customer: Carol from Arco, ID
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Removed the 3 star screws, putting in a piece if wire as I removed them. Wire was not stiff enough and let the drum slip thus binding making it hard to remove. Started over. Finally called a friend for help. I bought 3 tension pins the same size as the screws. When removing the diffuser screws, insert a tension pin in the hole as you remove each of the screws. The tension pins are hard metal and do not have a head. The diffuser will slip over them. After the diffuser was in place, we turned on the dryer to make sure it was running ok. I noticed what looked like lint toward the front. It was part of the felt gasket on the front of the drum and front of the dryer. We removed the screws on the dryer front and pulled it forward. The felt was rethreaded into its slot, put the front back in place,and replaced the screws that hold everything in place. If you turn the part of the dryer that spins by hand, make sure you are turning it in the correct direction. Turning it the wrong way is probably what caused the felt gasket to come loose causing more work.

Hardest part was rustling up the proper screw driver. 1) Unplug dryer from outlet. 2) Pull plastic knobs off all switches. 3) Remove screws and remove control panel. 4) Remove rotary switch by gently prying up on hold-down arm and twisting entire switch mechanism. 5) Remove wires one at a time and attach to corresponding spade lugs on new switch. 6) Install switch and twist into place. 7) Replace panel. 8) Replace control knobs. Under 20 minutes.
