I unplugged the dryer then removed 2 Phillips screws from lint trap. Then I popped the top up on each top corner with a screwdriver. I removed the 2 screws holding the front cover. I unclipped the wiring connection and moved the panel. I took out the old belt, put the tensioned back on then put the new belt around the drum and held the drum up with my shoulder then put the belt through the tensioner and put it on the motor spindle by pushing the tensioner back. I put it back together and it worked perfectly. Your video was very helpful. Job was very easy.

Unplugged the power cord. Removed two screws on lint vent , used putty knife to release clips to raise top at front of unit. Disconnected the plug from front door switch. Laid dryer on its back. Removed two screws to remove front including the door. Vacuumed lint from inside unit. Installed belt temporarily using two pieces of masking tape to hold it in place while properly routing the belt. Gave the tub a full turn to insure alignment.. Reinstalled the front of unit with the two screws. Righted the unit and snapped down the top. Replaced the two lint vent screws. Plugged it back in and done! Piece of cake!

I watched the part select you tube video that links specific loud dryer noises to specific broken or loose parts. It allowed me to identify the part I needed, which I ordered through their website. Two days later, I had the part and installed it, with help from another online video that showed me how to take the dryer apart to install the drum support roller. Thank you, the information provided made the repair quite easy. It works perfectly now!

I made it very difficult. I didn't research the repair. My back is old. It's easier if you just You Tube a video. The top roller you have to take drum completely out. The bottom one, The one that failed for me, you can actually do it without taking anything apart. Access it at bottom back, two holes. I do not have small hands, it would have been easier. Channel Locks inside, 9/16th socket outside. That will loosen main axle. Then use short screwdriver or socket driver on small bracket connected to bottom of unit. Mine had one screw holding it in. Easy bottom fix. I don't really recommend replacing top till it needs it. You can only buy them by the pair too. You will be ready when time comes. I found top roller didn't actually need replacing, did it cause I had it all apart. Don't fix if not broke, right? Trust, BUT, Verify. Smaller hands, would have helped me. All I got.

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.
