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.

Squealing noise during drying cycle

Repair was as straightforward and simple as the videos implied. The most difficult part of the repair was disconnecting the door wiring. It could be more plainly shown in the videos. After that it was simple. The cleanup inside the dryer, lint, etc., took as long as the repairs. An extra set of hands to hold the drum in place while routing the new belt over the drive pulley would have made it even simpler. Runs like a new dryer now.

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.

Dryer was getting hot but clothes not drying........

It was a shot in the dark given I've never performed any trouble-shooting on a dryer before but it was either I try or spend $900 - that I don't have - for a new dryer. I'm female, very mechanically inclined, and will try anything once. My previous recent parts order from PartSelect.com proved successful (in-wall oven door hinges and gasket) so I decided to at least try. To have a repair person come in the house would be at least $100 and that wouldn't cover parts; I don't know anyone to call so that made it worse. And again, buying a new dryer was even worse. I did an Internet Search on my dryer model and also put in "gets hot but won't dry". I received answers that it most likely was a belt. Logic told me - before the search - that a dryer must have either a pulley or a belt to operate so I thought I was on the right track! Lo and behold up pops up Partselect.com as having a belt which the website stated was about 85% the cause of my problem. The belt was $11.49 - how could I go wrong to just try it!??? I then found positively OUTSTANDING VIDEOS on how to change the belt and one thing led to another and I decided to purchase the entire repair kit (wheels, belt, etc.). I also decided to change the thermal fuse given the age of the dryer and while it did get hot it seemed to take a long time for a small amount of clothes. Purchased the kit and fuse, had them shipped 2-day priority (total cost $60) and downloaded the videos to change the entire kit and the fuse after having watched them on the website. I brought my laptop down to the washer/dryer area and place it on the washer. Turned on the video and followed it - stopping the video to perform my part of the repairs. It worked FANTASTIC!! One thing I did find was the dryer had never been serviced and was positively loaded with dust, dirt, "kitties", the lint chute had never been cleaned out and it had toothpicks, nails and screws in it. The entire project took me over 4 hours but that was only because the inside of the dryer was sooooooooo disgustingly dirty. I vacuumed everything - even the motor was covered with caked on dust - and when it came time to install the new parts I breezed right through their installation. There were even written instructions with the parts along with written instructions on the Partselect.com website but the videos are AMAZING! They made this repair so easy to perform, everything was laid out on the video and once I had the "squeaky clean" dryer all put back together I flipped the switch to find it worked like a brand new dryer! I have saved $840 (not counting taxes and delivery fees for a new dryer) and I have now completed TWO major appliance repairs myself........no outside or professional help ..........and I owe it all to Partselect.com and the super videos and parts that FIT! If you need a part look HERE FIRST; if you need help in the repair job: LOOK HERE FIRST. I've never been so happy about a repair as I am the dryer and not only for the tremendous amount of money spent but the ease in which Partselect.com made it with the videos. My mother is thrilled with her "new dryer" and I honestly can't believe it was so easy to repair!! THANK YOU, PARTSELECT.COM!!!

Had to order idler lever and wheel as the one in the kit would not work. Best to buy part specific for your dryer. Repair was easy, just watch repair video. Sounds like new dryer again

Removed top of dryer and front panel per instructions and removed belt and drum. After removing what was left of the old rear drum seal I scraped off and sanded the old adhesive off. Reapplied new adhesive and installed new seal after about 3 to 5 minutes (let adhesive get tacky) I then used about a dozen spring clothes pins to hold seal in place while adhesive set up. Reinstalled drum,belt,front panel and top and job was complete. Time included letting adhesive set up. Easy and inexpensive, thank you parts select.

Watched video on You Tube, ordered parts online and used excellent instructions sent with belt and other parts in kit. Turn power off by unplugging cord, lift out lint screen, remove screws in lint screen slot, pry up top of dryer with wood chisel or heavy screwdriver, unplug wires top front of dryer, remove self-tapping screws holding front panel in place, lift out drum, remove and replace all parts included in kit, lifted drum back into place, placed detergent bottle under drum to hold it in place while attaching new belt, asked wife to hold lightweight drum in place while I reattached electrical wires and front of dryer. Lowered top of dryer into place and reinstalled lint screen, Be careful! Panels are thin and cut like a knife. Also the dryer lid can fall if you slide the dryer into the wall while working below.
