Male end of door catch broke

First, I replaced the male end which was just two screws and simple replacement of pushing the fastener into the door frame. When finished I noticed the female end was damaged as well. Glad the female part came as well. This required taken off the front trim around the door (four screws - 2 each side) and then the door. The installing of the female end was easy with a little push. The damaged female end was already hanging out so easy to grab and remove. Otherwise I would have had to remove the front panel. Note You need to put the door trim back on before reattaching the door.

I followed the instructions you supplied. All went well. The short movie that you supplied was fine but the only tricky part which included placing the belt over the idler wheel was not well done in that the repairman's arm covered the work area. Delivery time was excellent.

I was able to take apart the dryer myself and get old belt out, then my son helped me remove the drum and put new belt on. Well worth fixing; it works great again and the part with shipping and handling was only $17.00! better then price of new dryer!!!Thanks, Mary ( Cincinnati)

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.
