Dryer drum didn't turn

Found a DIY video clip on YouTube...Ordered the parts...I only needed a replacement belt but PartSelect had an upgrade kit that included not only the belt and rear drum support wheels, but also the tensioner arm with a WHEEL instead of just the flat metal belt guide ( which I believe lead to the belt wearing out in the first place) All the parts fit perfectly and now it's better than new.

Broken belt.

Took the back off of the dryer and diagnosed the problem. When I saw that the belt was broken I got online and looked for a place to find a replacement. Found Partselect.com and checked out their site and not only did I find the right parts but I also found a video detailing the repair. I purchased a maintenance kit (the belt, the wheels, and the hardware) and the next day my parts arrived and I was able to get the dryer back together in no time at all.

Noisey operation, then NO operation.

I tore down the dryer, to find any and all issues. The belt was worn, the rear support wheels were worn, the Blower Wheel was cracked and busted, the left felt support was absent, the right felt support was shot, the water tube leading to the steaming chamber was split in two and disconnected. Ordered all parts from here, they shipped VERY fast, and the hardest part is getting the drum back in and set right. The belt was fairly 3easy to put back on if you removed the water tube support and get your right hand all the way back in there so you can pull the pulley wheel back while holding the belt. Completely cleaned the cabinet out, vacuum and scraper. Put a new exhaust hose on while I was at it, just in case. Once everything was put back together, carefully, the dryer works as good as new. I was told to never get rid of this dryer, they quit making them, and I see why. Easy to repair, does my dress clothes in the top cabinet, dries like a commercial machine in the lower. Oh some installation notes...The front panel comes completely off, if you disconnect the ground and the yellow wire on the lower right (your right) side. This makes everything else much easier. There are 4 front panel screws, 4 edge screws, and four counter screws inside the upper cabinet that must be removed. I had to pull the side holder screws to removed the top plat so I could remove the drum. Keep track of your screws!!! You will need a flathead, a Phillips, a small socket (I forget what size), and some needle nose pliers to remove clips (from the wheel).

Loud squeaky that turned into a rattling noise

I watched your video that showed me how to remove the top then the face of the dryer. I then removed the drum and belt,after which I could then remove the support wheels and the belt tension wheel.I replaced the support wheels and tension wheel,the hardest part was removing the little plastic locking keepers that hold the support wheels in place. After that I was able to reinstall the drum with the new belt and reinstall the face and top of the dryer. My 15 year old dryer works great just like new. Thanks

The instructions were easy to follow and the pulley on the replacement part was evenbetter quality than the original. I also followed the recommendation to clean the lint trap. Now the dryer works quieter and better than it ever did. Thanks for your product!

Loud "squacking, squeeling noise" during operation

Found right parts for problem on this website. Handyman took down machine and installed the drum support wheels. Taking apart was not too difficult; getting drum and dryer face aligned properly was a bit difficult and took longer than expected (and 3 of us). However, it was much better than having to buy a new dryer, since there was very little really wrong with this one. BTW, it was "out of warranty" so it would have cost around $150-$250 to repair using the repair service from the retailer we bought it from. Saved lots of money. Thanks.

rear seal hanging inside the dryer and lots of lint escaping

  • Customer: Jeanette from Celestine, IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

It was fairly easy, the comments and pics on this site were quite heplful. I just took out the screws on the lint trap and popped the top by pushing in on the clips with a putty knife. zlift the top and swing it back. I cut the old belt with a utility knife since i was replacing it and lifted out the drum. the drum wheels just pop off and on so they are really easy to replace. next I took off the old rear seal with a putty knife and put the new one on. This is a messy affair if you are not careful, I ended up with adhesive all over my hands. Next loop the new belt over the drum and replace it aligning it. You kneed someone to help you hold the drum level while you replace the belt wheel and front. Run the drum around with a putty knife under the new seal to make sure it is not tucked under anywhere. Put it all back together and you are done.

You know -- you take it out and clean it every time you do a load of laundry. The old one had holes in it, so we bought a new one. It fit. End of "repair."

I don't have specifics although they were emailed with my order confirmation and were perfect. I have dealt with PartsDirect multiple times over the years and have always been more than satisfied with their speed of shipment, quality of parts, and stellar instructions(even video most times). With PartsDirect, you never have to buy another appliance.
