First I like fixing things for myself. So I looked the problem up on the internet. Found the repair tech that I needed. The found your parts site. And BOOM. Looked up mt part on your site. Very easy you had everything I needed. And you got it to me quick. THANKS. When the part hit my mailbox. Everything I needed was there. I pulled the plug. Fliped the lid up. Took off the front. Removed belt off the ideler. Removed drum replaced bearing assy. Put it back together. Closed the lid and pluged the unit in. Worked so well I felt like a pro. My wife was tickled pink. Just like a new one. Thanks guys for making me look good and saving me a lot of money. Will use this site again. I give you 2 thumbs up.

I ordered the rear drum assembly on Monday evening and the part came on Wed at 11 am. I started the repair at 1 and finished at 3. It would have been faster, but my computer kept freezing during the repair video. The video was so easy to follow. I could have used longer arms or a helper, but I managed to get the job done by myself. Needless to say, my husband was thrilled. Great service. Thanks

Heating but drum not turning

With drum not turning, I removed rear access panel and confirmed that the belt was missing from the motor pulley. The instructional video provided by PS was extremely helpful. It made the job simple. Removal of drum thru front frame was the most difficult part which was relatively easy. Once the front panel and drum were removed, I could then see that the front drum top glide nylon/felt strip needed replacing which I then obtained.

Rear bearing was squeaking

Repair went just according to the video except to pull the drum out there was a plastic lock at the front of the dryer. It was held in by one screw and easy to take off. When I pulled the drum out the armature and spring that hold the belt tight fell off. I panicked a little, but easily put the pieces back in place. When I started the dryer for the first time it sounded odd but realized it was the sound of all the grease spreading itself around the bearing.

very loud screeching sound

Opened top and screwed the front off. Put belt around drum. It took two times as my sweet husband put the belt on backwards the first time.

Dryer making lots of noise

Remove small back plate near floor with 1/4 inch nutdriver unscrewing two screws. Lay the small plate to the side. Remove dryer belt from around pulleys by pulling up on the old idle arm near main spring. This will loosen tension of the belt. Belt just needs to be removed from only around the two pulleys. Detached spring from old idle assembly. The old assembly will just lift out. Reassemble in reverse order with new assembly from Parts Select. Takes less than 5 minutes. Extremely easy!

My dryer was squealing, which we ignored for awhile, then the dryer was beginning to have trouble turning.

I followed the video on your site which was very helpful and informative. The one thing that proved to be more difficult than it appeared in the video was reengaging the belt. Every time we tried to do it in the way the video showed, the tensioner arm would come off. The belt was very tight, even with that arm pulled back. We ended up just putting the drum part way in and then putting the belt on the arm and motor, and then stretching it over the drum. Perhaps because it was new, it was so tight. The rest was a breeze. Just followed the video. Was quoted $310 for this repair and I did it for $40! Thanks for your help and website! What a break in a terrible economy. You helped us out!

Flame Sensor didn't fix it but, it was easy to replace. Unplug electric. Lift up the top and remove wires from switch and light switch. Remove screws that hold on the front and remove front panel by lifting up and out. Sensor is on the left side of the burner, held on with just one screw. EASY!

Dryer started putting rust marks on my clothes

THE PROBLEM: Rust marks in the shape of a V started appearing on my clothes. I finally realized that there was gap at the bottom between the drum and the outer frame that was caused by the upper drum support having deteriorated... Clothing would slip into the gap into the area where the metal of the spinning drum was exposed - then spin upward leaving a small rust mark... INSTALLATION: The video of installing this product was spot-on! I removed the old glide and residual glue (the glue was the hardest part), then put the new glide on. After the glue dried enough to hold the felt in place, I put it all back together. So far, no more rust marks on my clothes!

thin cloth materials getting stuck between drum edge, leaving rust marks.

lifted up the top after releasing 2 catches with the putty knife, removing front panel, held in place with 2 screws. Scrape off top felt strip with the worn teflon tabs. Wire brush off old glue. Apply glue provided.(thin coating). install new felt strip. let the glue dry for a few minutes, reinstall, and you are done.

Raised the lid, removed 2 little screws,slipped the front panel off, disconnected the safety switch, vacuumed everything, slipped on the drive belt and reversed my way out. It was way more easy than filling a grease gun!
