Dryer just barely got warm

  • Customer: J Martin from Guerneville, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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.

The lint trap was destroyed

  • Customer: Tina from Burlington, WI
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

The repair was extremely simple; put the screen part into the frame part and screwed in two (2) screws. It took me less than five (5) minutes. However, I was upset with the UPS delivery because I am disabled and he left it at the end of my driveway. I have never had a delivery left at the end of my driveway - they always come to my back door even if they've never been to my home before. I know it is not PartSelect's fault however, maybe they could speak to UPS for future disabled customers. I know this would be a deal breaker for me if I need another part. It is extremely difficult for me to walk to the end of my driveway.

I just changed the lint trap. the amazing thing was that I ordered the part one afternoon to be delivered USPS and figured I wouldn't see it for weeks. BAM! the next day I got this part in the mail. it was kinda weird. Are you guys living in my basement?

Scraping noise from front of dryer

I had this happen a couple years ago so I knew what to do. The hardest part is getting the old glue off. I did that with some nail polish remover and a paint scraper - probably took 20 minutes just to get the glue off. From there, it's just glue on the new one and slap it back together. In hindsight, however, I would've ordered and installed the lower guide as well and done it all at once.

Squeak and clothes getting stuck

Just want to say what a great company to order parts from, I ordered the wrong parts by mistake, broke the part trying to install the incorrect part, emailed customer service and they not only gave me credit for the wrong part I ordered but, also for the shipping...I will definitely be ordering again from this company

Dryer Won't Heat Up

  • Difficulty: Easy

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.

Removing old felt and glue

  • Customer: Gerald from Battle Creek, MI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

After removing the old drum glide there was tufts of felt and glue left behind. The DIY video (which inspired me to try this repair myself) says to use a scraper and wire brush to clean the drum edge. I decided to try a drill with a wire wheel. Worked great. The surface was shining clean in minutes.

I want to suggest that you also purchase the lower drum seal or guide as well. When I took it apart I realized I needed it also.

dryer wouldn't heat

Part Select got me the right parts in the agreed time--good job. Shut off the power or unplug the dryer which ever is easiest. The toughest part of doing this job was figuring out how the lid came off the dryer, if you have a jack knife or a putty knife you push it in between the top of the dryer and the body about an inch below the dryer top and about six inch from both sides of the dryer front you will hit a latch that releases the top--slip a screw driver into the opening and do the other side. The top can be removed or you can hold it open with a stick. There are two screws that you need to locate they are on the inside of the dryer front about 9" from the top one on each side they are all that hold the front on the body so remove them but carefully not to drop them inside the dryer. On my dryer there were two screw inside the dryer door that held the filter body onto the front that had to be removed too. Then push the screw driver between the front and the body of the dryer like the top and it will pop open. There are some wires going to the front from the body they can be unplug just follow the wires to the connection point. On mine, I squeezed the sides of the connector and the wires pulled apart. Now you can move the front aside. At the lower right in the body you find the valve and heater burner. On top of the valve there are two sets of wires coming off the valve. Disconnect the wires--one set is for a three wire connection the other for two wire connection. Your parts have a two wire coil and a three wire coil. The coils are freed by unscrewing the metal cover that holds them down remove the two screws and that cover then remove the old coil off the valve then replace the new coil with the part that is the same. Three pin coil with three pin coil positioning in the same way as the old coil, then do the other one. Reattached the metal cover with the screws and put it all back together in reverse order. The dryer chamber--the inside of the dryer rests on the front so when you put them together you may have to lift the chamber up to met the face a little (1/4"). Good luck.

Brought up repair video on my smart phone and followed instructions while doing the repair (pausing when needed) and completed the job in under an hour including vacuuming the lint from inside the dryer before re-assembly.

Symptoms suggested drum support bearing was problem.

Referred to Video and replaced drum support bearing as shown. Did not solve the problem as noise was still present. Called professional repairman, who replaced the belt pulley, along with all the parts I had just installed (came as part of a total kit). I was on the correct path, but just didn't go far enough to check out the belt pulley. If it should happen again, I could complete the whole repair process. Great learning process!!
