Removed the front panel (door and all) to repaired the belt as the instructions said took him 10 minutes. Than as we have the door off we snapped the old door catch out and snapped the other on in less than 5 minutes. The most work was me holding to front panel while my husband screwed the screws off and back on. Total time 25 minutes. My dryer is from the early 1990's. Our baby girl was in high school. She's 29 years of age now. As long as this company stays around we will be ordering our parts from PartSelect. Thanks!

Belt Broke

Had an idea how the repair would go. The video is a great tool for someone not mechanically inclined. Easy fix and will save from paying a repair person. Suggestion .... put a small block of wood (or something simular) under the drum when you pull the front cover forward to save from having the drum drop down making sure the back seal is still seated and in place. No big deal and easily fixed if it pulls away.

Watched how-to video provided on PartSelect website. Most time was spent cleaning out the cabinet of lint and other debris. I found over 5 bucks in loose change! I Found pulling the belt over the motor pulley to be the trickiest. Note: my dryer will be 30 years old come this September. I wonder how many more years I'll get out of it!

Can't stop laughing about the mistake I almost made, before I even looked on internet I called Sears and scheduled a repair appointment, $80.00 just to have someone come out and tell me what my problem was not to repair it but to tell me whats wrong. And I told them the belt had broken I heard it when it snapped. Long story short version I found your website and entered appliance information, found part for $15.00 but also found on-site video clearly making the needed repair. Clear step by step instructions taking only 8 minutes looked very easy so I took a chance ordered the part two days later part arrived so I went into basement armed with laptop and tools. MAN it was easy.... too easy ....worked out fine video was spot on. Thanks you guys are a great company

Pulled the front of the dryer off. Removed the old belt. Replaced the new one by threading it flat side down, except for the drive motor which was ribbed, so the belt had to be installed sort of serpentine like. Replaced front of dryer and it's like new.

Clothes Dryer would not Tumble

The very first thing you want to do is Unplug the Dryer. I then took the two screws out that hold the lint screen to the top of the dryer. Then I used and old butter knife to pry the front top of the machine open. The top is held in place by two plastic clamps. Once I got the top loose I raise it up. Once I had it raised, I pulled up and out on the front panel where the dryer door is. I left the door switch connected and just put the panel off to the right. I then removed the old belt which was lying under the drum. The drum does drop slightly once you take the door off. This was one of the hardest part of the project for me as I did not have any help. This would be much easier if you just have one other person to hold the drum. Anyway, I then placed the new belt around the drum and used my left shoulder / arm to hold up the drum while feeding the belt in the slot on the tensioner and then over the dryer motor pulley. Make sure you don't twist the belt. I originally had a twist and when I hand turned the drum the belt came off the pulley and the tensioner. I had to rethread the belt through the slot on the pulley and then put the belt back on the dryer motor pulley. I then gave the drum a couple complete turns to make sure everything was staying in place. The tensioner on my dryer did not look like the instructions that came with the new belt. My belt tensioner is like a half circle and the belt just rides on it. I think if I had it to do over I would have purchased a new tensioner also. I feel that the belts constant motion against the tensioner probably causes it to wear out faster. Once I made sure evrything was staying on I replaced the front panel that has the door. You just slide the bottom into the slots while holding up on the drum so it lies on the felt padding around the door. Replace all screws and presto. Works like a new Dryer. Make sure you don't forget to plug it back in... Overall it's a pretty easy fix and much less expensive then a service call or purchasing a new Dryer.

My Whirlpool washer/dryer combo is 15 years old and has given trouble-free service until this belt snapped. I went to the PartSelect website for the replacement part and found the instructional video. As a DIY neophyte I know my limits but this looked like something I could tackle and save a few bucks on. The part arrived pronto and installation went smooth as butta! I couldn't be happier and even the wife is impressed. Knowing what a service call would have cost makes the whole shebang even sweeter. Thank you PartSelect!

Dryer drum stopped turning

Popped the left and right side clips that hold the top, took out left and right side screws that held front face on, disconnected the wire that went to the door, tilted the door to me and lifted up from tabs on bottom. The old belt was broke, so it was easy to get off. Put the new belt on the drum making sure that the rubber ribs were touching the drum then I put the belt on the tensioner pully and motor pully. I rotated the drum by hand at least 1 full revolution to make sure that the belt was on right and it wasn't twisted, then I put everything back together. Easy 10 minute job... Art

This was my first dryer repair. The only difficulty I had was figuring out how the belt tensioner was set up with the belt. The old belt broke so I didn't know how it was suppose to work. Anyway, it took a few minute to figure out that one end of the bracket was a "spring" that allowed it to flex a long ways! Pretty easy job.

Under heavy loads, dryer would turn off

Looked up on-line for tips, found computer animated video. It was easy as it looked, took longer to take dryer apart (not long). Other note on problem; neighbor who works on washer/dryers said that the motor was probably going. replaced belt anyway because I already purchased it before we spoken. Throwing caution to the wind!!
