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.

loud squealing when running

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

dryer was loud when in operation

actually your site was very helpful in describing each part that i chose to replace. one helpful hint to someone when installing the dryer pulley is to use the parts box to hold up the drum when installing.it seemed to be the perfect size. great site!

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.

Took back panel off. Did not have a clue! Went to Partselect Web site,entered my problem,BAM! instant solution.Watched repair video and was surprised how simple repair looked.Heck I can do this,no problem! I work from 7 A.M. to 5 P.M. so theres no chance to stop by local appliance part store before they close. Ordered my parts from Partsselect,arrived in just two days. Followed video instructions ,completed job in thirty minutes or less! I also got important information regarding maintenance and cleaning dryer to prevent fire hazard.Thanks,for help and saving me time and money.When I have a problem in the future I now know where to go.

Pulled the back off, removed heating element and thermostat, installed new heating element and thermostat. This didn't fix my problem. Now I'm not sure what to do. I watched a video on diagnosing the problem on youtube. It helped me install the parts I bought. Now I'm not sure what the problem is as the ones I bought and installed didn't fix the problem. I guess diagnosing is my problem now.

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

I watched your repair video and followed what the repair man said and did, it was a snap! I needed my dryer fast so decided to do it myself. I am a 65 year old female and petite, so I say if I can do it anyone can. Your video was the key to my sucess.

Followed general instructions from your you-tube video. It was much easier than expected. We didn't know if it was belt or rollers, turned out to be roller, but since we bought both we replaced both.
