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!

Rear Drum Bearing replacement

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.

After pulling up the Frigidaire site on internet, there was a video as to how to replace the knob. Very simple to replace. Ordered it and the turn-around time was very fast.

The dryer was squeaking.

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!

squeek in rear bearing

  • Customer: James from Cottonwood, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set

There are really good instructions with photos on line - search squeeky dryer. I would add that it is easier if you mount the new bearing assembly on the drum before placing the drum back in the dryer cabinet. I guess this is obvious but was not stated in the referenced instructions. The round bearing slotts fairly easily into the plastic pillow block mounted on the back of the cabinet. Just make sure the small ball bearing remains in the center groove - lots of greese will help this.

I watched the video on the web site after selecting the part and it was pretty simple. Everything worked just like the video showed. Probably could have been done faster but I took time to vacuum the inside of the dryer out. Really liked the video.

I was surprised that the knob actually broke, and was also surprised at how much the part would cost direct from the manufacturer. The website had a ton of different knobs available, and I'm sure a number of them would have fit. The part showed up in just a few days and fit perfectly. Trying to set the dryer time using pliers makes a person appreciate the proper parts!

Parts Select has my high praise! Everything from the ease of the on-line ordering system to the video on how to install the parts (very well done!!) to the quick deliver...all was very impressive. My wife thinks I'm pretty cool that I was able to pull this repair job off and I definitely will come back if I need another part! Thanks for helping this "weekend warrior" shine! Bruce.

Timer knob on dryer broken on the inside

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

The drum was out of balance

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.
