Many thanks for the video you guys put together on replacing dryer belts! I didn't know how I was going to get inside the dryer. I had the dryer apart in 10 minutes! Had to wait a day for the belts to come in. New belt in and dryer running in 15 minutes! Thanks for running a first class operation!! Jim

Did it just as the Video said to and had no problem other than it should have warned about a possible problem with the Drum drive belt going to pieces. I am very happy with PartSelect for the parts and the instructions, it all worked well for this "Old Man". Thank You p.s. My local Sears had the belt or I would have gotten it there too

I heard the dryer running, but I didn't hear it tumbling like usual, so I got suspicious. I popped the top off of the dryer to reveal a broken belt. Installation took 20 minutes.

Loud squeek when running

Could not figure out how to get into the dryer. Wasted a couple hours trying different things. Found a video online which showed the repair I wanted to make. After that it was easy. One needs to be tall and in shape to lift the drum out of the case....or have the help of a second person. Only a little blood was shed but now feel confident I can replace any of the parts in the dryer if needed.

It was a closet type washer/dryer combo. With little space to work I needed to know how to get at the heating element to test it. Was told the tumbler had to come out the front to expose the element. Made the job easy without having to figure that out.

Dryer stopped putting out heat.

dryer tripped the circuit breaker

disconnected the dryer; cleaned the duct. I reconnected everything and started it up again and within seconds tripped the breaker.Decided probably the thermal limiter was faulty, so ordered new one from you. After it arrived I watched video, then removed the top and front, pulled drum to give me some workroom, replaced the limiter, reassembled in reverse order.I then reset the breaker, plugged the dryer in. Runs perfect.The drum was a challenge - so I used a wooden wedge to support from the front and opened the 12 by 12 rear port to access and reset the pulley cable assembly.

I wanted to know why my dryer was making such an ear-piercing screech. Googled, and found Steve at PartSelect. After watching the 10 minute video on how to replace the rear drum bearing, I knew this was something we could do at home. I ordered the parts on Friday and they arrived on Monday. Also ordered a new drum belt and drum glide. Didn't know if we would need those parts, but figured while we had the dryer apart, we might as well replace them. My husband watched the 10 minute video the following Saturday, and together we replaced all 3 parts. The original bearing was small enough to fit through the hole (which it shouldn't) and metal shavings we all over the plastic holder. The large metal ball attached to the dryer had grooves worn into it. The kids we amazed, too! I can't believe the repair was so easy! Seeing the inside of the dryer makes me wonder why they cost so much! Do not hesitate to make this repair yourself. Even just one person could do it.

Rear drum bearing failure

Follow instructions all most to the letter. In video it was stated to get an assistant to hold static / housing retainer in place to start screws. I put it in place and, used Duck Tape to hold it there while i started screws. Thanks for the deal on parts and, video. I would also suggest advising to check the nylon strips on felt at the front top. Mine were worn. But there was enough at the back of nylon to remove and, glue remainder in place almost as good as new. Again! ''THANKS!''
