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.

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

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

  • Customer: Kristina from Draper UT
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

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.

Everything I needed to know was already on your website. Prying off the top of the dryer (with a big screwdriver under the front of the top) was the hardest thing, since I was afraid I would break something. Only then can the front be removed (taking out just 2 phillips screws). The rest is easy.

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.

Dryer Won't Heat Up

Never knew I was handy, but I did it! I was reluctant to spend a couple $100 on a repair visit, so found this site and bought the coils I needed for only $26+tax. It's pretty easy. I just lifted up the top of the dryer with a screw driver, should snap open. Then unscrewed the front panel with two screws from the inside. Then located the old coils on the bottom left. The bracket that holds them is a little difficult to remove as you need to have a small philips screw driver to get the back one. But once I got that off, just unplugged the old ones and put the bracket back, then the panels and it WORKED. The only problem I have is that I didn't take the door switch off properly and now the dryer doesn't stop spinning if I open the door and want to check the clothes. So I may have to get someone in eventually.

Rear drum bearing failure

  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

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!''
