To tell the truth I got involved with other business and my wife did the repair. The tub did not come forward as described in the video. She had to use some force as the tub support ball had worn into the bearing. All said the job was simple and much thanks to the Tech video. Thanks.

First, I watched the how-to video and it gave very good instructions and a couple very good tips. I disassembled the dryer and took a little extra time cleaning all the dust that had accumulated. I then replaced the bearing and belt with no problems. This site and the video made it very easy to do and I will defenantly use it again.

Go with the usual disassembly process (front clips, two Phillips screws, wiring, etc.) The only thing I would add to the process is that when you replace the bearing on the back of the drum, start the three screws into the holes on the disc BEFORE you try to install it throught the back of the drum. You are making your own threads, so run the screws in and out a few times, then place it on the back of the drum and insert the screws. Hope this helps...

we heard the most deafening screech! when we investigated we found that the plastic part that the shaft rested in was worn, unevenly and the shaft end was scored. (we live in a house with 8 people so a fast fix was needed) I looked up the part on a sears site. when I checked the part avalibility I f

we removed the top of the dryer which was clipped on. then removed the front, including the door, being careful to unhook the electrical elements. then we removed the screws that attached the dryer drum to the back of the shaft. then we took the shaft out of the bracket. then we removed the plate from the back of the dryer that held the ball, the bearing and the bracket together. then we waited for parts and thanked God that the weather was fair so we could hang our clean clothes out!!! the parts came ahead of the rain so it was reverse order. then try the dryer!!!fantastic!! to qoute my kids "you rock"

I followed the on line video which was a help. I already had the dryer apart before looking for the parts, since I did not know the problem before disassemby. The replacement bearing kit has one fault. The new screws are only Phillips head, the original ones were a combo Square Drive/Phillips. Fortunately I had saved the original hardware. The replacement Phillips head screws are IMPOSSIBLE to use to cut the threads in the new bearing plate. I had to use the old ones with a square drive bit and it was still difficult. Perhaps the holes in the plate need to be a few thousandths larger in diameter to make this easier. After cutting the threads the new screws worked OK, but still difficult to install them while reaching in the drum. Square drive or even hex head would definitely be better.

Machine was making a squeaking noise.

My Son-in law did the repair. He removed the top, the front lower panel and finally the front panel with the door. It took a little more time than anticipated because there was not any explicit directions on how much to remove to replace the belt, but he got the job done and put it back together very quickly. Glad I have him to help when needed:).

loud squeealing noise from dryer during operation

The part arrived just in the nick of time as my wife and daughter had strung up rope all over the family room to dry clothes. My son helped me lower the dryer to floor level ( this is a stackable washer/dryer set) Removed the top and front of cabinet. Removed the belt and popped out the drum. Took this opportunity to clean the amazing amount of lint from the blower housing and discharge hose ( it is my opinion that the accumulation of lint and the subsequent rise in operating temperature is the main cause of this bearing failure) Removed and replaced the rear bearing and greased it. Reassembled the drum,installed the belt and reassembled the cabinet. the only tools used were a screwdriver and a nut driver....and of course a vacuum cleaner. The rebuild kit is very complete and is the only way to go. Thanks for your fast delivery time, one more clothes line in the family room and I wouldn't be able to watch T.V.

Dryer heated up but drum would not turn

The dryer was heating but the drum would not turn. We opened it up to see what the problem was. As soon as we opened it, we saw the belt was broken. I ordered a new one and after two trips to the laundromat I was ready to get the dryer fixed. That weekend we tackled the job. First I did a Google Search on Westinghouse dryer repair, found several ....one with a video:-) Punched in our model number and they went through the whole procedure....while it took them only 10 minutes, we took a little longer. But they had great ideas how to hold the drum while repairing, etc. Being recently laid-off this was a fantastic find. I have no idea how much a service call would be on the dryer nor could I afford a new one at this time.... Great old American Know How got it done.

rear bearing failure

  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

after cutting the power, I used a putty knife to release the two holding clips ot remove the top,, 2 foward facing screws on either side of the front and two cap covered screws holding the bottom and unhooked the two electricial connections for the control panel and removed the front panel. Since this was a stack unit and in a closet most work had to be done from the front. By reaching inside to remove the belt from the motor,removing the drum was the easy part, to get to the bearing, but unfortunatly I had to remove the dryer from the closet to replace the back bearing clip and ball. After that replacing the bearing bracket and housing it was a breeze. Getting the unit back in the closet was a slight struggle, but it all worked out for the best got a chance to cleas behind the dryer, and the repaire was successful, phew.

Dryer would not cut off on auto dry and after replacing the thermostat the problem still existed. Most likely something wrong with the timer part of circuit.

I decided to replace the cycling thermostat. I disconnected power, used the putty knife to push back spring type retainers underneath the top and
lifted up the front edge of the top and pushed it upward to rest on the back hinges.
Next, I unscrewed two sheetmetal screws on the edges of the front panel.
Then I supported the front panel upward while releasing the push type spring clamps before pulling it forward off the drum. I was able to swing
the front panel open from the left side and gently open it while watching one wire that was connected to it from the right side.
Then I was able to take the terminals off the thermostat noting which way they were connected.
I unscrewed the two screws holding the thermostat to the fan housing and replaced it with a new one. I assembeled from the front panel bacwards. until the top was back down.
Upon testing the unit I found out that the problem was not the cycling thermostat.
I plan to investigate the timer circuit that the thermostat controls next.
One can take out the thermostat and test it for cycling by removing it and checking terminals with ohmmeter x1 range and heating and cooling it with a hairdryer. Meter will read zero when thermostat is cold and closed. It will read infinity
or high resistance when it is open and hot.

I removed the panel's that enclosed the drum, removed the drum and cleaned all the lint around the drum, heat panel, drive motor, and switch's.
removed the old support bearing and grounding ball then applied grease into the new support hub and reinstalled the new hub and grounding ball and then reassembled the dryer. Runs like it was new.

Two weekends ago, I was doing the laundry and when I went to turn the knob on the dryer, the inside part broken. I had to use a pair of plyers to turn the timer and finish drying the rest of my clothes. I had ordered from Parts Select three years ago and I went to their website which had been updated and found the part I needed. They even had instructional videos to describe which was really neat and it was very easy to order a replacement part. Because of the low price on the dryer timer knob, I ordered three just in case in the coming years the timer knob breaks again. Thanks, fm
