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.

Broken dryer belt

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.

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 had my laptop next to me and paused the tutorial video
as I did each step to chnage the drum rollers, idler pully and belt. Dryer runs great with no more screeching!

Dryer not tumbling and squeaking

My dryer all of a sudden stopped tumbling. When I opened up the machine, it turns out that the drive belt was broken. I simply put in the model number in PartSelect.com and found this kit that came with the belt, and drum rollers. The belt fixed the tumbling issue, and after replacing the rollers, the machine is as quite as a mouse! The instructional video helped show me exactly what to do and expect. This was my first time fixing an appliance, and it only took me 45 minutes!

Dryer stopped spinning, but still putting out heat

Basically, I just did everything in the Parts Select video - it's what gave me the courage to attempt the repair myself and I am a 61 yr. old woman, who's not in great physical shape! The belt had broken. The two things that gave me the most trouble were disconnecting the tab on the door switch assembly and getting the screws to line up when replacing the front panel - one side lined up fine - the other needed a good push and an "alley-oop" to the side with my hip to fall into place. I did a few things that were not in the video which I think really helped me out. (1) I put an empty quart sized paint can under the dryer drum to hold it up - that really helped - I only had to support it slightly myself when threading the new belt. (2) I put a piece of duct tape across the bottom of the idler pulley to keep that from falling out of the holes when I was threading the new belt - that worked like a charm. Just be sure to remove the piece of duct tape and the paint can before you close up the dryer, if you decide to follow those two tips. (3) I also eventually put something under the front door panel to help raise it up and get it more in line with the two holes that it connects into, which made it easier for me to get it back into place. (4) Have some bandaids on hand - I sliced two fingers on different parts while installing the whole kit. (5) After you are done, either clean out the dryer vent hose or put a new one in - I was surprised by how much lint was clogged up in there. I never repaired any appliance before and if a 61 yr. old weakling like myself can do it, anyone can. Parts Select Rocks - the kit arrived a day and a half after it was shipped out and the video tells you everything you need to know to do this repair yourself and save big money. $49 versus probably $150 for a repairman and $500+ for a new dryer. Dryer is running like new! Would definitely do this again, if this or another dryer broke in the future. Thanks!

I reviewed the instruction video. Excellant video. exactly like my dryer. Just followed the instructions. I did put a shoe under the drum for easier installation of belt onto idler pulley. I vacuumed and cleaned inside. Really not that dirty.Excellant web site and video instructions. Wish I had done the repair sooner. Also God Bless the residents of OK city, Moore, and ElReno.

After watching your video, and reviewing the directions, I was able to change the rollers, the belt and tension bar with ease. The parts cost me slightly under 50.00 and now the noise is gone and my dryer works great. I am very pleased with PARTSELECT and would use them again. The parts were at my house within three days of placing the order !!!

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!!!
