Used repair video as guideline, I did not have their lab conditions to work in and by no means a clean machine. Also I had a two part front panel vs. single as in video, so disassembly and reassembly were OJT."on job training". Video was however very usefull in locating problem, getting correct part and accomplishing the repair. Saved $$ and machine is now working properly again. Am saving this web-site to my favorites list.

Repair went fine. Really easy for the most part. Unfortunately it didn't solve my problem. Great place to get parts though. I'm going to continue my search for the source of the noise

I simply followed the instructions, replaced the belt, tub support wheels and tension pullie. Could not have been easier. I figured it was worth $47.00 to buy the kit and if it was another issue, at least I saved money vs. a service call. There are only so many things that can go wrong and the belt was the fix. 20 yr old dryer works just like new.

The machine just stopped.

I had some trouble getting the top off. I don't think it has ever been done. It was so dirty inside that I took the shop-vac to it. The belt was not broken but had shifted in the track somehow. I was very lucky as I'm a female senior citizen. My husband, who used to do all these thing, is very ill and unable to help. Unfortunately, we live in a small town and there is no one within 50 miles of us to help us. The video was very helpful. I was so glad I watched it.

The dryer would come on but not tumble and then shut itself off. I called a repair man, who came out after a $45 visit and said the motor needs to be replaced. He said it would be $200 plus the service call of $45. I told him no thanks but still had to pay him the $45 service call fee. The name of the company I called was Cook Appliance Repair out of Louisville Kentucky. I then did a Google search on locating a company that I could order the motor from and found Part Select to be very reasonable. The new motor was $79. I went ahead and ordered the maintainience kit that included the belt, the two rollers with clips and the spring loaded roller. The clips were a little difficult to remove and put back on the motor. The videos on Part Select did help and I would recommend watching them prior to replacing parts on any appliance. I am glad Part Select had the repair videos and think that is going above and beyond by offering these videos. The delivery time was quick. I ordered on a Saturday and received the parts on Wednesday with the standard cheapest shipping. I am very pleased with the parts and Part Select and would definitely recommend Part Select and will use again on my next repair. Total spent including shipping was about $114.60. My dryer is now fixed and working great. Thanks Part Select.

Watching the video from Parts Select for replacing the rollers showed us all we needed to easily replace the wheels as well as the Pulley and belt. It made a gigantic different in the noise and efficiency of the dryer. One of the Wheels was actually 3/4 gone, worn away. Hopefully, this repair will extend the life of an already old dryer. Thanks for the videos that made the repair a 'piece of cake'.

Poped the top; removed the front of dryer; removed the drum; replaced the rollers and clips, new belt, and new idler pulley. Cleaned out all the lint. Reinstalled all. It works perfect. Ordering the parts was easy and the assistance you give in diagnosing the problem was excellent.

Ordered a parts kit with belt, tensioner, rollers, & clips, but did not use. Unfortunately, the kit was not correct for this model, regardless of the sales reps assurances. The kit had two rollers, our unit has four. The belt tensioner was not even close to being the same. However, a thorough cleaning of the interior with vacuum and rag was done. Removed, cleaned, and lubed each of the four rollers and the tensioner wheel as well. Lubed with small amounts of sewing machine oil on the axles and light spray of silicone on plastic to plastic contact points. Voila! It's as quiet as new.

Dryer would heat, initially, but would not come back on

As it turned out, the Cycling Tstat was NOT the problem, it was the gas valves, but replacing it was not a bad thing and took about 2 minutes. The Maintenance kit took a little longer, as you have to take the dryer apart. Watch the video, great tips there, the only difference is the gas dryer has two tabs clips at the bottom of the door section, so just loosen the two bottom screws, above the lower access panel, and it will slid up and off, when re-installing, reverse the process. Dryer runs great, not only did I totally clean up the entire machine, with a decade of lint, replaced the operating tstat, gas valves and maintenance kit, I replaced the flexible dryer vent with a more substantial stiffer vent hose. The dryer runs great and drys in record time on a lower setting. Well worth the time and parts, for a 10 year plus dryer it runs great.

Drum stopped turning

Using a stiff putty knife I depressed the clips that hold the top down. I loosened the screws at the lower edge of the front panel and removed the two 5/16 head screws that hold the front on. I unplugged the door switch and lifted the front off the lower screws. I removed the drum and the broken belt. I replaced the rear rollers after applying some dry lube to the shafts and replaced the tension spring and rolled. I replaced the drum and belt and attached the belt to the small pulley on the motor. Then checked the rear gasket felt and reinstalled the front cover and the top.
