This repair took only about 15 seconds to complete. It just involved pushing the new knob on the selector. The provided video should give you the confidence to complete this task.. I invested $11.00 for the part. I would hate to see the cost to have a repairman come and fix this. Worth every penny

Drive Belt Was Noisy-Slipping

  • Customer: Steve from Carrollton, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I just popped up the top front using a large straight (slotted) screw driver, then removed the 2 screws at the bottom front, then the whole front panel popped down about a half inch to be lifted out of the way. I found the old drive belt way down under the motor (still attached as normal), very near the floor and removed the worn out belt by hand, and replaced it with the new belt by hand also. The spring loaded belt tightener- idler wheel makes this a very simple process to accomplish. Then, I replaced the front panel-- all done. Works like new.

We have a washer/dryer stack type. For a week or so, my wife mentioned that washer is louder than normally is, shortly, the washer stopped spinning and the clothes were finishing soaking wet.

I opened the front panel sheet and saw the broken belt, ordered the belt online. The belt arrived in 2 days, and the actual belt-replacement took 10 minutes. The washer functional like new.

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!

This is a case of not knowing the proper tool to do the job. I went to turn on the machine and the knob broke( common on this machine). The stub of the knob fell into the machine. Thought that the access plate was put on with screws. I saw that the hole was similar to an allen hole. I couldn't get the screws out so called a repairman. He spent 10 minutes, charged me $65 and then told me that most newer appliances need a tool called a robertsons screw driver to get the screws out without stripping them. I felt like a dope, a $4 tool could have saved me $59. A word to the wise, learn what tools do the job and this won't happen to you. JT
