Followed the procedure outlined in instructions included with maintenance kit. My dryer did not have a pully wheel on the idler arm. Instead it was more or less a wear bar formed in a semi circle attached to the idler bar. This is what was causing the noise. The dryer wheels were good and the dryer belt was good too after 10 years of use. The parts in the kit were of good quality and fit perfectly. The supplied instructions were easy to follow.

Once I watched a YouTube video showing me how to do the job I ordered the part from you. Am so impressed with your fast shipping and best prices via the Internet. Thank you SO much! The water level switch was easy to install, it ws getting the cover on the washer back on that was hard for me since I am 68 yrs old and have a bad knee. Its why it took me two hours to do what most people could do in 20 minutes.

When the part came in. I unplugged the dryer. Pulled it away from the wall and took the back off. I pulled the wires off the old fuse and plugged them in the new fuse, then unscrewed the on nut that held the old fuse. Then slid the new one in and put the nut back on. Plugged the dryer in and it worked. So I unplugged the dryer and put the back on.

Removed the back panel, found the fuse and replaced it. Easiest thing I've ever done! I was expecting it not to be the problem, but I started with the "most common" issue via the website. Voila...it was the problem!

Installed new heating element. Simply watched the provided youtube video and replaced the heating element. Job took approximately 30 minutes from start to finish, very simple fix. Saved a couple hundred bucks by doing it myself and I have limited knowledge on dryers!

Broken belt, but went with the mainentance kit since it was going to be all apart anyway. Found the job easy to do and the new belt idler was a big improvement over the old style. /also came with instructions. Good for another 5-10 years.
