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 !

clothes were getting caught on the inside top of the drum

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.
