Ok, there was a couple of other parts not on the video but were not hard to deal with. I would suggest talking a photo of the assembled parts before taking parts of for a reference when reassembling.

Dryer making loud noise on startup and during cycle sometimes.

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.

Easy!Took itnall apart, just had a bit of trouble getting the wheel off, was on there very very tight. Ordered it through you, easy, and very very quick, received it in a day. I got an email explaining the reassembly process. Easy. Just follow it to a t and you will be fine. As a woman, this was an easy fix.

Preface this by saying I'm not a good handyman. I love working with my hands, but I cannot cut straight, make angles, plumb, or do anything electric. I knew I had a gas dryer but I had to learn that it uses a burner not a coil. That said, armed with my trusty iPad, I located Part Select, watched a video or two, entered my problems into the correct fields, and made an educated guess based off of the results. Since I already had the front cover and the motor cover off the dryer and the 2 sensors were right there, I ordered both-why take the chance. I ordered Sunday evening and the parts arrived Tuesday around noon. By 1pm I was drying clothes. Feeling pretty cocky now, I'm going to try to hang gutters this weekend.

Replaced the Thermistor and the Control Panel

  • Customer: John from Buchanan MI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set, Wrench set, Wrench(Adjustable)

When the dryer would not tumble, we had to go through and systematically test every fuse/electrical connection on the dryer. Discovered that not only did the thermistor need replacement but the control panel had blown a fuse also. The repair was easy once we figured out the problem and once we had all the panels off the machine.

Tumbles but no heat

Tested sensors for opens and resistance found Thermo. fuse had open (NO CONTINUITY )order new Thermo Fuse was wary about resistance on Internal Bias Thermistor.Replaced both and problem was solved .Piece of cake if you are familiar with a Multi. Meter other wise it would be a guessing gam

Taking longer for clothes to dry

  • Customer: Robert C from West Columbia TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Watched Steve on the video on changing the thermistor a couple times, it appeared to be straight forward replacement. Unplugged the dryer...Went through the front, my lent filter slides in and out from the lid so I had too remove two extra screws to detach it. After opening up the front it became very apparent my Thermistor was not located in the same location as the one in the video. Dryer needed a cleaning (lint/dust) so I released the idler pully tension on the drum belt and went ahead and removed the drum/belt and shop vac/ blew with compressed air and shop vac once again. Gave my dryer a much needed cleaning since I had it apart. Put everything back together in about 20 mins. Pulled the dryer away from the wall and removed rear cover and presto there it was right next to the dryer air outlet. replaced Thermistor and replaced back cover, inspected out flex hose on dryer outlet, I clean it out (flex) yearly to prevent problems. reattached flex on both ends, re-positioned dryer, plugged back in, and works great! Definitely fixed my problem... Replacing the drum by myself was a bit difficult. still do able (there's a video on that also..)

Washer overflowed

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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.

Control board defective

  • Customer: Irene from Corpus Christi TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Very easy, viewed the you-tube video and followed the instructions. Simply, unplug dryer, remove back panel (4 nuts), open back, remove one screw that holds board in place and slide left to remove. Take a picture of wire configuration to ensure you reconnect the same way. For the most part it is self explanatory for the exception of the hot wire and two ground wires and proceed to disconnect wires, install new board by reconnecting wires and proceed to replace back cover. Reconnect power source and get to drying.
