Install Rear Bearing Kit

  • Customer: Vincent J from Norwood PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Tip: After pre-taping the threads on the ball shaft, use painter’s tape to hold it in place while you attach the screws. Do the same with the bearing retainer. Don’t use tape that will leave a residue when you remove it or your clothes will smell like adhesive. Tip for stacker dryer: There is no need to remove the wires connected to the front panel. Swing the panel around to the side. Put a small bungee cord through the door opening and attach it firmly to the top of the dryer. Make sure the cord carries all the weight and that there is no strain on the wires.

We followed the video exactly. The video itself was simple and straight forward. Our model was a bit different than the video's example. The video's example had their spring action for the belt configured differently. When we finally figured out the difference, we were able to finish the job within minutes. The dryer now runs like new. We aren't mechanically inclined. That's why it took us so long. I still would recommend this company to anyone because it saved us time and money. The video really helps!

Rear Drum Bearing replacement

  • Customer: Samantha from Portland OR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

First I have to say that the video on the Parts Select website was invaluable, it truly made the replacement a no brainer. The kit came with everything I need and was a great price.

Unplug the dryer, mine is a stackable so we had to remove the dry from the top of the washer. I then followed the instructions from the video. The only real difference was that my dryer is that is has dual direction tumbling, so there were 2 idler arms instead of one to move in order to un hook the belt. was pretty easy.

I only needed my husband's help a couple of times because 1. To get the dryer off of the washer. And 2. I didn’t have the reach to install the new bearing on the back of the drum.

Removed access plate in rear, raised top panel, removed two screws holding front panel (with door) put new belt over drum. Threaded belt through path between motor drive and idler wheel. Put everything back together.

My order was shipped very promptly, and was received very quickly. It is wonderful to have this service available on the internet. I can remember how difficult it used to be chasing down parts before. This was impossible in smaller cities.

FOLLOW THE VIDEO!! I was scared to even get into it until I watched the video. Made it easy for me and I have little to no mechanicl skill. Excellent video that made it super easy. Took me an hour as I was taking my time. Now I could probably do the same repair in 20 minutes.

I replaced this belt once before but it squeaked for over a year. This belt from Part Select was much better quality and now the dryer works perfectly, no squealing!

Replace heating coil

  • Customer: Adrian from Denver CO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

The heating coil wire broke and a section of it has become uncoiled. I had to remove the drum to access the heating coil. Disassembly was relatively easy. I took a good amount of time removing the excess lint all inside the dryer. The difficult part was re-installing the sheet metal screws as a few didn't want to cooperate due to burrs or slight misalignment.

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

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.
