Loud humming noise then motor would stop

  • Customer: Clarke from Lynnwood WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

The dryer would make a loud humming noise and the seize up. I would reset the breaker and the dryer would run briefly and then seize up. I opened the dryer and cleaned out all the lint on the motor but it did not help. I spun the motor shaft and felt like a bearing inside had failed. I watched Steve in the video-he was awesome and made it all simple- and ordered the correct parts. I decided to replace the rollers, belt, and pulley as well as the motor. The repair is very easy-and worth it- EXCEPT one piece of advice. BUY the blower fan that attaches to the motor. Mine did not come off easily like in the video. The plastic shaft deteriorated under pressure from the wrench. I was forced to use a heat gun to melt/then cut the blower fan from the motor. It was not easy but don't let it deter you from the repair. I used a table vice but never could remove the remanents of the blower fan shaft from the motor. The repair was a snap after that. Great site for parts and help.

broken wheel

I had purchased a motor for the dryer first. The blower wheel broke while I was trying to take the motor off from the blower wheel. Installing the new wheel was fairly easy once I took the blower cover of at the back of the dryer and literally brake the wheel of the motor shaft.

Dryer wouldn't start... Just a hum when you press the start button.

Well it took me longer to get the dryer apart and than it did to get it back together... Well I opened it up it was obvious I had burned up the motor you couldn't even see it for all the lint that was built up around it... And the hardest part was removing the fan from the motor shaft, I didn't realize it was plastic and sort of mangled it getting it off so I went ahead and replaced it as well. The hardest part of the whole repair was removing and replacing the clips that hold the motor in place and there didn't seem to be any trick to it, I used a pair of channel locks and a little muscle to get them off and back on everything else was a breeze! I recommend checking the exhaust pipe at least once a year to make sure air is flowing freely to prevent the lint build up inside and even more often if you have a long run. This should prevent having this problem again...

found out that pushing in on wheel and turning counter clock wise, wheel screws off rather easy.

Loud noise when dryer was in use

  • Customer: Anthony from reseda CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

I unplugged the dryer and removed the front panel. i then looked underneath and removed the belt. at this point this point I was able to remove the drum. once the drum was removed I was able to replace the pulley and wheels. the maintenance kit was just the ticket. I follow the enclosed instructions and I was done in no time. I would suggest taking it apart first so you can make sure you order everything you need the first time.

Dryer was clunking very loudly

  • Customer: Jim from Huntington Beach CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

Followed instructions that came with the dryer with the exception of the idler pulley which I didn't install because this maintenance kits idler pulley does not match my dryers. Not even close. I would have had to cut or drill holes to make it work. Since I knew it was the rollers that were the problem. Dryer worked great once I was done, but it probably would have been cheaper for me to order the parts individually without the Idler Pulley if I wasn't going to replace one.

Broken drive belt

Removed back cover,top,lower and upper front,and drum. Cleaned dust and dirt drom all of the removed parts and then removed the "lint tube". Took the tube apart to clean out dirt and lint, cleaned the lint off of the motor and blower wheel, and then removed the support wheels. Installed the "lint tube" and then the new support wheels with the new locks and then installed the new belt onto the drum. I had to support the drum in order to correctly line up the belt, and then installed the upper front panel. plugged in the power cord and started the motor to be sure everything was OK before closing up the rest of the cabinet. All was OK and the belt tracted perfectly. Installed the lower front panel, top, and the rear panel. Installed the gas connection, checked for gas leaks and installed the dryer back in place. checked operation with a batch of wet clothes and the dryer worked "better than new"!!! The instruction sheet was "spot on" for clarity and accuracy.

broken dryer belt

Everyone said changing a dryer belt was a piece of cake.They did not tell the truth it is a difficult job. I am a 52 year old female and I had a problem. You have to take the whole drum out. I finally completed the job but i had to prop the drum up with blocks so I could screw in the front panel. I think for those who want to change the belt I would go smoother with two people so the can hold things in place while the other one screws the panels back. I also think taking the dryer door off make the front panel a lot more easier to put in palce.

Following the step by step instructions it took longer to clean the old lint out of the bottom of the dryer than to perform the entire repair.The maintenance kit came complete with every moving part(except the motor and drum)and now it runs very quietly.I am all thumbs when it comes to tools but this was very simple.

Loud grinding noise while drying

I ordered the maintenance kit because it was recomended for my application and the symptoms my dryer was exhibiting. However this kit did not apply to my model. My model contained 4 drum rollers, only 2 came with the kit, and the idler pulley setup was completely different. I should have pulled the dryer apart first to compare pictures to the actual parts. No big deal, prompt refund after a quick phone call to Parts select. I was able to fix my idler pulley with a couple of new nylon washers and a new snap ring to hold it in place.

Dryer became EXTREMELY noisy

  • Customer: Lawrence from Cape Coral FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Kit arrived with all the parts required and with detailed instructions. LOL... the very specialized tool you will need to dis-assemble the dryer? A PUTTY KNIFE. All in all, aside from the top of the dryer slamming shut without warning and scaring the pants off me, this was a relatively easy repair from a technical level. Only real difficult thing was removing and then restoring the drum and that was more due to clearance than actually being difficult. Make sure once you're finished to LEVEL THE DRYER. That makes a HUGE difference!!!!!

Very detailed instructions.

The dryer sounded like a herd of buffalos running by.

I needed to replace our drum support rollers - one was completely worn out and wobbling (the buffalo herd noise) the other wasn't too bad, but for an older dryer(15+ years) I figured it was time to replace both wheels. I ordered the maintenance kit that also included the Idler Pulley and drum belt. I spent most of my time with the vacuum since there was a lot of dust accumulated inside the dryer. (I recoverd $1.83 in coins!) The instructions that came with the kit were very helpful for this repair. Plus, there were some online videos that heled as well. Once I had everything apart I noticed the plastic bearing ring on the drum's front was nearly worn out so I quickly ordered this from PartSelect and it arrived quicly in two days - this took only 10 minutes to replace.

Belt was worn, rollers were sticking, idler worn out. Ordered a kit to care for these issues, as usual the reapirs took almost no time. Dryer became a bit quieter for a first load, second load the motor siezed. I priced rebuilding most of the machine and determined replacement was due.
