I took the lower back panel off. Loosened the center bolt and took off the old Idler pulley. It looked brown in the middle and didn't roll well. But I wasn't sure if that was it, because the noise was so loud and sounded metal on metal. So I checked everything and vacuumed everything. After I got the new part it took me about 5 minutes to put the new one on. And dryer works fine. Thanks for the quick response and I saved about $200.00!

I simply pushed the knob back onto the post. No problem! Now I don't need pliers to turn my dryer on. Yippee! (And the part was cheap-less than $10.00).

I Took the front off and saw the cushion was gone around the drum and glids were worn down. I ordered both parts . It took 5 minutes to glue the cushion back on around the drum and 2 minutes to snap the drum glids on.But what I couldnt believe was the amount of lint that was all over the inside of the dryer.I would suggest to anyone to take the dryer front off once a year and clean it all out . I now understand fully why there are dryer fires.But the fix was cake and it runs like new.

I finally found this great website that not only had the part, but directions on how to do the work. The part came to my house in about 4 days. After 9 years of being broken, it is refreshing to have it fixed. I have bookmarked this site for ANY future repairs.

i watched the video that is furnished at parts select, it was very useful in doing this repair. i would strongly recommend watching this as i did install the ground bearing wrong to start with,and restringing the drum belt is something you have to feel as your installing it back in place so the video is useful for that as well. my repair was on a front load dryer made by Frigidaire,

Removed the bearing socket, installed all parts and covers in reverse order.

Take the top off the dryer. Once it's off, start inserting the bands from the inside. From the top or inside, control and move the drum as needed to insert band in place. Once band is in place, and holes line up, press down till you hear it snap in place. Repeat process with second band.

1. Use flat blade to compress clips so top could be raised. Use Philips to remove 2 screws holding front on. Popped front off and then removed old worn and broken glides. Had to lift the drum slightly when placing the front back on. Screwed in the 2 screws to hold the front on. Lowered and locked top. Be careful not to pinch any wires..
