Replace Drive Belt

What a pain in the butt to route the belt thru the tensioner! There's room for only one hand in there. The guys who do this for a living must have some secret. My solution was to drill a 3/16 hole thru the side, make a j-hook from 8-32 threaded rod, use that and a wing nut to pre-load the tensioner, route the belt, then slowly back off the wing nut until the belt was tight. It works. . . .

Clothes getting hot, but not getting dry

Verified that the heater element was working; drum and contents were getting hot. Could hear the thermostat clicking on/off as the element started to glow. Drum stayed very steamy the entire time; consistent with no airflow. Fan motor was running, dryer vent/line were clear. Verified cold (not hot) air from the external vent. Seals had degraded to the point that the fan was not drawing air from the drum, but from inside the dryer cabinet at the lower seal (by the fan blades); hot air was escaping from the upper seal and was causing the dryer cabinet to get unusually hot. Installed these 2 seals, and the dryer is working perfectly now.

The dryer had no heat but would tumble

I Removed the rear panel. Then I used the instructions online to locate and test various parts and determined what was defective. I order the parts online and received them the next day. It took less than 30 minutes to do the repairs. The dryer works great.I will be using partselect.com in the future and would recommend them to anyone who is having problems with their appliance.

Lint Chute and Lint Trap Seals had Deteriorated

The on-line instructions were excellent; however, the man doing the demonstration used a brand new machine - not one where the old seals had melted and dried out and required serious cleaning before attaching the new seals. The new seals went on easily and I am very happy with everything about this task. I am also glad I now know what that lint chute looks like, so I'll do a better job of keeping it clean in the future.

Took back panel off raised and removed the top lid w/o taking any wires off. One electrical plug on top had to be unplug, two screws holding the front cover removed. Front cover came off. Removed the belt then removed the drum. Once the drum was out it was RR the rollers. I put A dab of grease on the little shafts. I should have replaced the idler pulley. But oh well. It was still ok. Put on the new belt and reversed the procedure.And now no more thump, thump. It took alittle long because I vacuumed everything in the back and underneath. no spare parts left

Ordered new rollers from PartSelect. I followed the video to replace the rollers. Everything went well. The video did not show how to put the belt back on. I then went to replace broken belt and there was the way to go through the pulley. Works great with no noise. Just like new. Thank you

layed the dryer door side down, took 6 nuts off back metal panel, then took the bolt off at bottom and reached in and pulled drum support rod loose, removed old roller, installed new roller, reached in set drum support rod back into hole where the threads were showing on the outside where the nut was then put back on and tightened back up, put a pair of vicegrips underneath on rod to hold in place while tightening up nut,placed cover panel back on with screws and now it works like a new one, runs very quiet. Cost was 25 dollars for part nothing to do it ourselves. We priced new dryers that size they're well over 400 dollars. Easy REpair!!

Heating element had 2 wire connections and 2 screws that held it in place and was easy to replace. Thermal fuse had 2 wire connections and 1 screw holding it in place. Over all, this repair took about 5 minutes to complete and the dryer works great again! Mike N.

Removed back of dryer and the fuse was right there in plain sight. Had to remove a screw and pull contact wires from fuse. Attached wires to new fuse, replaced screw that held fuse in place. Replaced dryer back. This web site is great! Diagnosed my problem, and then received the replacement part the next day! I will use the site again, if necessary, and recommend it to others.
