I raised the top up by releasing the two clips in the front edge with a small flat head screwdriver. I used a bungie cord to keep the lid from bending to far back. I removed the front of the dryer softly letting the drum rest on the insides. I carefully removed the drum by pulling upward to disengage the rear bearing and not damage the heating element. I then cleaned the entire inside of the dryer with a vacuum, brush, and some compressed air. I then replaced and greased the new plastic bearing cup, installed the drum, slipped the belt on, installed the front cover, and hooked up the belt through the access door on the rear of the dryer. Checked to see if the system looked ok and closed the lid. Worked great. I would order a front seal felt kit also if I was to do it again.

Your website was very helpful in narrowing down and diaganosing the problem. A continuity tester verified an open solenoid. Ordered Sunday evening, parts arrived Tuesday. Ignition coils drop in place with a holddown bracket and one screw. Wiring harness is reattached. Front of dryer is put in place followed by the top. Plugged in the dryer (it is just commom sense to have the power off). Started dryer, of course it ran WITH heat. The end of the story is HAPPY WIFE, HAPPY LIFE. Happy to do business with you.

Loud squeaking noise

Followed the video. Very helpful. There is no way I could have done this on my own without that guidance. Parts in Rear Drum Bearing Kit included new screws and metal support parts that are shown as reused in the video. To install these parts, I had to hold the back plate in place. A big piece of masking tape did the job nicely. The only major problem was tapping the holes in part that attaches to the drum -- very difficult. Needed my best Phillips screwdriver, leather gloves, and a lot of hand strength to get it done. I had to slightly ream out one of the holes to make the last screw fit. Minor problem - the idler arm is not retained by anything. The idler pulley and arm both fell off when I reinstalled the belt. I guessed right on how to get them back on the machine.

This was a stacked washer and dryer combo and is a lot more difficult to repair, requiring a lot more to take apart and put back together.

I SET UP MY LAPTOP WITH THE PARTSELECT VIDEO GOING. LAID OUT MY TOOLS AND THE INDIVIDUAL PARTS THAT WERE IN THE KIT. I WATCHED THE VIDEO A SEGMENT AT A TIME, PERFORMING THE TASKS IN THE SAME MANNER THAT THE INSTRUCTOR DID. ALL TOGETHER, THE PROCESS TOOK LESS THAN TWO HOURS, I HAD NO QUESTIONS OR DIFFICULTIES, AND THE REPAIR PROCESS WENT FLAWLESSLY AND SUCCESSFULLY. I HAD NEVER DONE ANYTHING MORE COMPLICATED ON A DRYER THAN REPLACING THE HOSE BEFORE THIS. THE SENSE OF PRIDE IN DOING A REPAIR OF THIS LEVEL MYSELF, AND AVOIDING PAYING SOMEONE RIDICULOUS FEES TO DO IT, IS BEYOND DESCRIPTION.
