Broken dryer belt

I simply followed the instructions, replaced the belt, tub support wheels and tension pullie. Could not have been easier. I figured it was worth $47.00 to buy the kit and if it was another issue, at least I saved money vs. a service call. There are only so many things that can go wrong and the belt was the fix. 20 yr old dryer works just like new.

Using a Nutdriver, took all screws off from back panel. Located heat element, took 2 more screws off. Taking 1 wire off at a time, just to make sure they went back on right. Finished with the wires. Replaced element, then put back on. Plug dryer back in. That easy!!! Now I'm back in business. Very easy. Thank You.

When I told my Uncle I needed to learn how to fix a dryer he gave me a multi-meter and his old repair manuals from when he was a repairman. My uncle lives in another state and recently had heart surgery. I read them then I read up on multi-meters. I tested each part. The cycling thermostat appeared to be dead. I found Part Select during a search for that part. I ordered it and received it very rapidly with great service. I put it on and discovered the heating element was also dead. Back to Part Select got it fixed it runs like new. I did not memorize the model number and I have no idea how old it is so I am unable to answer all your questions. I'm not really fit to instruct anyone I'm not even sure what I'm doing.

Follow the video that PartsSelect has posted. Easy repair. I spent most of my time cleaning out the lint from the back of the dryer. Wasn't bad but figured I do it for general maintenance and fire prevention. *** Important *** There was an additional piece (thermal cut out fuse) that existed on the original heating element. Be sure to remove it and transfer to the new heating element. Easily done with a pair of needle nose pliers.

very simple. actually did a little more then was necessary. once we removed the back of the dryer, used our vacuum to vacuum up all the lint that was back there. Watched the video on how to repair the part when we ordered it and it was easy as can be.. we have used this web site to repair our oven, fridge and now the dryer. Everything went according to plan. I reccomend this site as much as i can and it has saved us a lot of money. Thank you!

Dryer wouldn't turn on

When I initially inspected the dryer when it stopped working, I noticed a ball of lint had collected on the backside of the thermal fuse. I figured that had allowed the temperature to exceed the fuse's max temp. To relace, I simply removed the dryer's rear panel, disconnected the thermal fuse and replaced it. Once all back together, the dryer powered on with no problem.

Squealing noise during drying cycle

Repair was as straightforward and simple as the videos implied. The most difficult part of the repair was disconnecting the door wiring. It could be more plainly shown in the videos. After that it was simple. The cleanup inside the dryer, lint, etc., took as long as the repairs. An extra set of hands to hold the drum in place while routing the new belt over the drive pulley would have made it even simpler. Runs like a new dryer now.
