After removing the bottom front panel using a putty knife to pry the upper left and right edges of the panel, I noticed that the long thin drum belt had broken. I went online to PartSelect, and using the Whirlpool model number, found the parts diagrams. Since the dryer is 20 years old, I decided to order the maintenance kit part# PS373087 which includes new idler wheels, retainer clips, and a tension pulley as well as the belt . I found a number of webpages that offer guidance in replacing the belt. Along with the instructions that came with the maintenance kit, I was able to do the repairs and have the dryer up and running in 30 minutes. Remember to remove the door springs before taking off the upper front panel. You only need to loosen the bottom screws on this panel. Leaving them in place helps to align and hold the panel when re-installing it.

After running the unit for a minute or so I removed the back of the dryer. Unable to locate the problem from this vantage point, I then removed the bottom kick plate. Using a small flash light, and turning the drum by hand I discovered that one of the support rollers had burned out the bearings. I went to this web site to see if I could still get parts for the unit. I found not only the part, but a full repair kit. Knowing all the parts would need to be replaced at some point, and that Mom could not afford a new unit I replaced everything. The parts did truly arrive in one day when they arrived I went back to your web site. I had seen instructional videos while looking for the repair parts. After watching the video I removed the dryer drum, removed the parts to be replaced (2 drum support rollers the belt tension roller, and belt) I replaced old with new cleaned entire unit reassembled and it is working like a champ thank you very much for all the parts, and info

Opened up the dryer and found that the belt broke. Came to this web-sight and was quickly directed to the correct part once viewing the schematics, and then watched the video. The day the parts arrived in the mail, I went to work and managed to get the drying working that night! Thank you for the parts, the video...made it very easy to complete. Sheral

Would not start and made a funny noise

I watched the associated videos and followed the steps. The one thing missing from the video is installing the tension wheel for the drive belt, but that is simple, just remember how the old one is installed when you remove it. I recoomend watching the video once or twice before you do anything so you are familiar with the steps then if you have a laptop run the video as you are doing the work. My dry is now like new for a small investment in parts and my time, well worth it and easy to do!

Dryer would start then shut off after 5-10 seconds

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.

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.

I followed the video provided by PartSelect. It pretty much went exactly like the video said it would. I was pretty sure the belt or idler pully must be the culprit, but I didn't even know how to open the thing up until I saw your video. I would likely still be putting up with the squealing without that video. Now the dryer is nice and quiet. -Mike

Broken belt and bent idler pulley

First unplug the unit. Take the lint filter out and remove the two Phillips-head screws at the edge of the opening. Then using the putty knife to unlatch the top panel of the dryer, insert it into the seam on the front about 3" from each side. When you feel the knife up-against the latch, apply a little inward pressure with the knife and pull up on the top panel. When you release both sides the panel, it will lift up and back against the wall(secure it so it doesn't fall forward while you are doing this repair). Looking down on the right-front corner you will find a connection for the door switch, Dis-connect it. Just below that connection, on the inside, is a 5/16" screw that holds the front panel on, take that one and another one just like it on the left side, out and the front will fall forward about an inch and then you will lift up on the panel while holding drum in place. Inspect the clips that hold the bottom of the panel on and be aware how the panel attaches to them. Try to keep the drum in place and set the front panel off to the side so you can easily grab it to put it back on. Looking under the drum remove the belt and idler pulley. The pulley is usually not in the position it should be in, it likes to fall over when it has no belt pressure on it. Hopefully you had already unpackaged the new belt and straightened it out. Loop the belt over the drum, rib side to the drum, and move it to where the old belt had been riding on the drum. Back under the drum, you should hold it in place with your shoulder, with idler pulley in hand-- install the idler pulley. There's probable a clean spot where the old one was and the humpback should point to the right side of the dryer. With right hand steadying the idler pulley, the left hand should pinch the belt together and feed it under the wheel and pull it out and hook it on the motor pulley. It may seem to be a tight fit but once its on you should be able grab the outside edge of the drum and slowly turn it without hearing any scraping noises. Double check that the belt isn't twisted. Before putting the front panel back on or if you had to take the drum out, make sure the felt seal on the back edge of the drum is not folded inward. the wheels that the drum roll on must be in the groove. Carefully reach to the back to check that they are in the groove of the drum. If everything seems to be in place, hold the drum with one hand and grab the front panel with other. Place the bottom of the panel against the unit and lift up about an inch and place the square holes at the bottom of the panel on the clips on the unit, it may take a couple of tries, then lean the panel forward making sure the drum goes around the felt seal on the panel. Once the panel is against the unit , install the two 5/16 screws securing the front panel to the unit. Turn the drum by hand to make sure drum was installed properly. Reconnect door switch. Lower top panel and push down to secure it. Install the two Phillips head screws at the edge of where the lint screen goes, install lent screen and plug the unit back into the wall socket.

Watched a video on utube and realized how easy this looked, took my dryer apart to see the belt broken in half and the idler pulley in pieces. Found Partselect on the internet and ordered my parts. Partselect was awsome, website was easy to navigate, ordered my parts and they were at my house the very next day and were the correct parts. Cleaned all the lint and dust out of the inside of my machine, installed new parts and put it back together. Works great and is still running strong. A service call, plus parts (with thier mark up) could have easily been $150.00 - $200.00 dollars. this repair was complete in about an hour and only cost me $37.50

Door switch hadn't been working for a while and when the belt broke decided to make it right.
