Dryer was making a squealing noise

  • Customer: Trever from Vancouver WA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The repair video from PartSelect.com was excellent in describing how to fix the dryer. All of the parts were included in the replacement kit, including the screws and ball bearing. I was very impressed with the quality of the kit and the video. A $25 kit probably saved me hundreds in repair cost and saved me from having to buy another dryer. Here's to another 14 years of use!

Ordered the part from PartSelect.com. It came in a couple of days, which was nice. My wife was all over me to fix the dryer, or buy a new one. Needless to say, I didn't think the old one was done. The bearing assembly had an instructional video. This provided easy to follow instructions, and simple advice even I could follow. Everything went well, and the dryer is now quietly running as good as new. Awesome website, and the customer service is excellant too. WE use PartSelect.com at work all the time. Im a property manager, and the parts and advice save us thousands every year. Thanks guys!

The dryer made a clunking noise as it was turning

  • Customer: John from Largo FL

  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I used the PartSelect website to diagnose and repair the dryer. The video shown was a different model. Mine is a front loader. I just had to figure out how to get the top and front panels off myself. I just took my time as to not break anything. Once I did that the video showed me how to remove the belt tension and remove the drum and belt together. The hitch pin was a little different so I called to make sure the parts were OK. I then vacuumed out the cabinet installed the parts, the drum, reset the belt tension and then the covers. It sounded sweet when I started it up. Mission accomplished! $41 vs. a couple of hundred I suppose.

squealing, very noisy dryer!

  • Customer: Vern from Sedalia MO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I used the video, and it helped me a lot! I got the drum out, installed the new bearing, greased the new shaft and the receptacle, then I reassembled. When I tested it, mine was still very noisy, so I removed the drum once more and cleaned/added some grease on the tensioner bearing. This was the cause of the noise in my case, but the bearing & housing were nearly shot, so something would have given out very soon. I would suggest to grease the tensioner the first time to save time and effort. (And save some of the grease for the tensioner pulley). SAFETY TIP: there was also a ton of lint that got trapped inside the unit!!! Clean your dryer once per year to prevent it becoming a fire trap!

Loud squealing while drying

  • Customer: Brian from Brier WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

The consensus seemed to be that the loud squealing was most likely the rear drum bearing needing to be replaced. Although the repair went very well (great video!), it did not fix the problem. BEFORE you go the route of replacing the rear bearing, first pop up the top and see if a little piece of plastic that is attached to the top middle of the front panel by a screw is rubbing against the drum (you have to have a load going). I removed this part (I could not find it listed on any parts list) and the squealing stopped. I have no idea what the purpose of this part is, except for maybe keeping the drum from dropping too far down if the load is really unbalanced. This plastic part is on the dryer that has the controls on the front (it has the ability to be stackable) and might not be on the other unit that has the controls on the top back. If anyone has posted this as a possible cause of the squealing, I haven't seen it.

Very easy you had everything I needed. And you got it to me quick. THANKS. When the part hit my mailbox. Everything I needed was there. I pulled the plug. Fliped the lid up. Took off the front. Removed belt off the ideler. Removed drum replaced bearing assy. Put it back together. Closed the lid and pluged the unit in. Worked so well I felt like a pro. My wife was tickled pink. Just like a new one. Thanks guys for making me look good and saving me a lot of money. Will use this site again. I give you 2 thumbs up.

Pushed new knob on the piece that was sticking out. No tools needed, it was very simple to replace. Took ten seconds. Your service when we called about our problem was excellent, the part shipped in a very timely manner, and replacement was very easy. All in all, our dealings with your company have been great. Thank you.

Used a flathead screw driver to pry broken handle out and snapped new handle right back in. Took no time at all. It was great and to top it off, I received the ordered item within 2 working days! Thanks so much. (I do not really know the age of the dryer as it belonged to my Mother who has been relocated into Hospice).

Started with an annoying squeaking noise until the shaft broke and the drum hit the floor, KTHUD!!

  • Customer: Cheryl from Tulare CA

I ordered the rear drum assembly on Monday evening and the part came on Wed at 11 am. I started the repair at 1 and finished at 3. It would have been faster, but my computer kept freezing during the repair video. The video was so easy to follow. I could have used longer arms or a helper, but I managed to get the job done by myself. Needless to say, my husband was thrilled. Great service. Thanks

Heating but drum not turning

  • Customer: Richard from New Orleans LA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
With drum not turning, I removed rear access panel and confirmed that the belt was missing from the motor pulley. The instructional video provided by PS was extremely helpful. It made the job simple. Removal of drum thru front frame was the most difficult part which was relatively easy. Once the front panel and drum were removed, I could then see that the front drum top glide nylon/felt strip needed replacing which I then obtained.

Rear bearing was squeaking

  • Customer: Robin from Lafayette OR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Repair went just according to the video except to pull the drum out there was a plastic lock at the front of the dryer. It was held in by one screw and easy to take off. When I pulled the drum out the armature and spring that hold the belt tight fell off. I panicked a little, but easily put the pieces back in place. When I started the dryer for the first time it sounded odd but realized it was the sound of all the grease spreading itself around the bearing.
