The main drum bearing was bad and vibrated the heater coil causing the coil to break, real easy fix, take off top cover of dryer, take off front panels and door assembly, lift up drum and pull forward, replace parts =)

The dryer was squeaking loudly and cloths were getting caught between the frame and drum and burning.

Your tutorial video of how to change out the heating element was so helpful, it gave me the confidence to tackle it on my own. It was so detailed, there was no worries of not knowing what to do. Everything was exactly as the video showed, and was very easy to replace this heating element. My wife was thrilled we saved money on doing it ourselves, and grateful to have the dryer working with 3 kids and a husband who works in concrete! Thank You to the Parts Select team for putting such a helpful site for people to utilize!

Found instructions on "UTube"some of the screws were in a different position but you can see them. While you have the dryer apart it's a great time to clean it and also as long as you've gone this far replace the belt,it's probably time.

I shut the door too hard, and the old latch fell down into the inside of the dryer.

My order confirmation email had a "how to" video for installing the parts I ordered. I just watched the video, and the installation was ridiculously easy! We've put up with the obnoxious screeching noise for probably about two years, and with about $40 in parts and less than an hour of work time, we have practically a new dryer!!

Once the part arrived, I logged back into my order and watched the part installation video as I did the repair. The video was perfect, it made doing the repair easy and safe. Best part is I didn't end up with any extra screws which was good.

This is a front load dryer. First unbolt top cover of dryer. Then unbolt screws and connections to control panel. Next unbolt all screws holding dryer door and front bottom panel. Next take belt off of drum and slide out drum from the front. From inside of drum remove 3 screws and remove bearing then put new bearing on and bolt up the same way you take old one off. Using an 8mm socket or wrench remove plastic bearing cage located at rear of dryer. When unbolting there is a retaining clip and small steel ball to be removed from back of dryer. Replace this the same way you take it off. He sure to grease the bearing cage then replace everything back from putting the drum in first to your last step bolting on top cover of dryer. Hope this helps anyone doing this repair.
