Unplugged the power cord. Removed two screws on lint vent , used putty knife to release clips to raise top at front of unit. Disconnected the plug from front door switch. Laid dryer on its back. Removed two screws to remove front including the door. Vacuumed lint from inside unit. Installed belt temporarily using two pieces of masking tape to hold it in place while properly routing the belt.

Plugged it back in and done! Piece of cake!

Turn off power. Move dryer away from wall and release the top by lifting up to release the two clips. Lay top against the wall. Remove the two screws, one in each corner, left and right inside the cabinet. Lift front panel up and out away from dryer. Place along right side of dryer. You may need to unlatch the wiring for the door switch. Reach inside the bottom of dryer and release the belt. Lift the dryer drum out along with the belt. Observe the two guide rollers that the drum rides on. Using a blade screw driver release the clips that hold the rollers onto the spindles. Clean up around each spindle. Install new rollers in reverse order and put all back together. The hardest part is reinstalling the belt. Put belt around the drum, around the motor pulley and then onto the tension roller. Good luck..

I unplugged the dryer then removed 2 Phillips screws from lint trap. Then I popped the top up on each top corner with a screwdriver. I removed the 2 screws holding the front cover. I unclipped the wiring connection and moved the panel. I took out the old belt, put the tensioned back on then put the new belt around the drum and held the drum up with my shoulder then put the belt through the tensioner and put it on the motor spindle by pushing the tensioner back. I put it back together and it worked perfectly. Your video was very helpful. Job was very easy.

The instruction sheet that comes with the parts is excellent. Follow it and all goes well. Be patient and stay away from the sharp sheet metal edges present in all such appliances !!

Excessive Noise from dryer

In previous work, I replaced the rollers, but the noise remained, so I figured it was the Idler that was the problem, it appeared to be worn. The repair is pretty straight forward, open the cabinet, remove the front and remove the belt. Once the belt is removed take the old idler assembly out and put the new one in. Making sure you the entire assembly is inserted properly into the guides. I then put a new belt on as I figured that as long as I had gone this far, might as well replace the belt to prevent future problems and more work. I put the belt on and then put the drum back in, making sure it seated properly on the rollers. The hard part is getting the belt on the idler and drive pulley properly as there was no way to prop the idler all the way back against the spring pressure. However once everything is aligned everything was set properly. Replaced front and closed top. Unfortunately the noise remained, it seems the real cause of the noise was the fan assembly which had self destructed at the hub and was no longer turning at the same speed as the motor shaft. I opened up the fan assembly and removed the fan. I used one of the rollers as a hug for the fan and installed a set screw into the side so that the fan would lock onto the shaft. The roller had the same diameter hole as the motor shaft and all went together perfectly. Problem solved for now. Nothing I read suggested that this could be a problem and I never suspected that it would be as it was pretty much a closed system. I proceeded to order a new fan from Partselect. Incidentally, the new fan hub opening is nowhere near the proper size, I split the fan trying to get it to go on the shaft, that was even after filing some of the material off. The difference is at least 1/16 inch smaller than the shaft diameter.

blower not rotating, hub worn

Unfortunately, the part that came in was a major problem. The shaft hole was way undersized and probably made for a much smaller shaft then the one on this dryer. I had to bore out the shaft and drill and tap a set screw to lock the blower to the motor shaft. I would estimate that the opening was at least 1/8" smaller than the shaft and as it was molded, the flat for locking the blower had to be drilled out as well. Even so, as I pressed the unit onto the shaft, it split and I had to do major work to make the blower usable. Until now I have been very pleased with the quality of parts from Partselect however this critical part did not meet the manufacturer's specifications as to the bore for the shaft.
