I read the last three peoples experiences when I ordered the part on your on line page. I had already made all the wrong mistakes taking the machine apart, and couldn't beleive how simplified it was on your web site. I had called a local repair shop only to be advised the part would take 4 days shipping and the price of it plus shipping was twice what I paid you. Your part arrived the day after I ordered it on line, Thanks again for being there!!!!!

Poped up top, removed front pannel (2 phillip head screws) observed failed belt. Replaced belt. Tensioner can be held back by hand so it was easy. Works great. Part Select Rocks! I put in the model number and bam, there was my needed part, 3 days later it was in my hands. This was after me wasting time driving around town trying to find it at home depot type stores to no avail. I'll never do that again. This website makes repairing appliances a snap. Gotta love on-line shopping! woo hoo

Let me start by saying, I ordered these 2 knobs for my dryer and they came faster than lightning. I was so glad to know that I could order something and have it within 48hours. KUDOS! Onto the actual item, I got the 2 knobs and since it was just the knobs that broke off and not the mechanism itself, I just took the knobs out of the package and put them on the mechanism by pushing on and VIOLA! , I was done!
If I ever need anymore parts for any of my other appliances I will sure use Parts Select and I will sure tell my friends about you guys too!!
Good Prices.. Fast Shipping.. gotta love it!
