The removal of the front door assy was very easy after I popped up the top cover with a putty knife.Once removed it was easier to replace belt and idler assy with dryer on its backside.the only trick was to get looped thru idler roller and then fasten bracket in slot on bottom of dryer.also the instructions were well written which made re-assy much simplier.

Side wheel of drum support wore through bearing, sever noise at each rotation.

The only added thing to know is how to remove the lower kick plate. This is not on later models. Other wise all the directions are the same as for models with a full solid front panel. Immediately below the dryer door, at the right and left end, there is a plastic clip similar to the one holding the top panel to the vertical side panels. Insert a flat screw driver or putty knife releasing the plastic clip. This will allow the kick plate to fall forward on rings at the bottom of the plate. Release springs at either side of the dryer door (reattach later using pliers or a hook). Unscrew the nut screws at either side of the dryer door. Remove the door panel and the kick plate and put to one side. Reverse to reattach. I replaced the wheel tension part and the belt at the same time. I put the dryer on its back to install the wheel, belt and tension part. I used strips of scotch tape to hold the belt in place at the top and sides of the drum, while I looped the belt on the tension wheel and the driver wheel. I used the bungee cord to hold the top in place while I put the whole drier on it back. Good luck and have a vacuum handy to suck out years of dangerous lint....

Before placing your order remove the motor. At the rear of the motor is a plastic nut which is how the fan is attached. Mine was stuck and needed to be removed with a cutoff wheel from the back side of the dryer. This delayed the project several more days as I had already received the motor before figuring out the fan was stuck.

Drum belt broken.

Just like the video. Disconnect the lint shute. Pop the top lose. Disconnect the door switch. I actually took the hooks off an removed the entire lid. Took the two screws out and removed the front panel. (The OEM idler was a teflon half-moon so I think the abrasion was what caused the belt to fail.) Put the belt around the drum. Rolled the drum to check the seal overlap was proper. Installed the idler and wrapped the belt around the motor shaft. Put it back together. Would have been a little easier with a helper.

Went on YouTube ,saw a video on how to diagnose and disassemble the dryer. Surprised how easy it was. I figured an appliance repairman would charge 100-150 so I would be wasting anything if I tried it myself.

Dryer making squiling noise when on.

First I watched a instruction video online.. It made the job easy. I have done it before but I did not remember exactly how to proceed, After watching the video i knew exactly what screws needed to be removed and what tool I needed for each step. Anybody sees the video before tackling this job, they can't go wrong.

The dryer was very noisy when running.
