Found instructions on "UTube"some of the screws were in a different position but you can see them. While you have the dryer apart it's a great time to clean it and also as long as you've gone this far replace the belt,it's probably time.

I shut the door too hard, and the old latch fell down into the inside of the dryer.

This is a front load dryer. First unbolt top cover of dryer. Then unbolt screws and connections to control panel. Next unbolt all screws holding dryer door and front bottom panel. Next take belt off of drum and slide out drum from the front. From inside of drum remove 3 screws and remove bearing then put new bearing on and bolt up the same way you take old one off. Using an 8mm socket or wrench remove plastic bearing cage located at rear of dryer. When unbolting there is a retaining clip and small steel ball to be removed from back of dryer. Replace this the same way you take it off. He sure to grease the bearing cage then replace everything back from putting the drum in first to your last step bolting on top cover of dryer. Hope this helps anyone doing this repair.

My 15 yoa son repaired the dryer. It took him a little while, but it works great. I ordered the bottom drum seal and when he pulled it apart the top seal was more worn than the bottom, but he made it work. I would suggest changing them both.

Many thanks for the video you guys put together on replacing dryer belts! I didn't know how I was going to get inside the dryer. I had the dryer apart in 10 minutes! Had to wait a day for the belts to come in. New belt in and dryer running in 15 minutes! Thanks for running a first class operation!! Jim

I heard the dryer running, but I didn't hear it tumbling like usual, so I got suspicious. I popped the top off of the dryer to reveal a broken belt. Installation took 20 minutes.

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
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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?

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.
