Dryer would light on first start but not during cycle

Unplugged dryer, pulled up on top panel to remove it. Removed a couple screws holding front panel to sides, and unplugged wiring harness. Removed front panel. Removed yellow plastic stop with one screw on top cross brace to allow removal of drum. Disengaged belt by cutting it since I was replacing it anyway. Lifted up on drum to disengage from rear bearing and carefully removed it. Removed old Drum Glide, cleaned surface and used included glue to attach new Glide. While glue was setting, vacuumed everything thouroghly and collected loose change. Replaced the two ignition coils by removing two screws and the retaining plate. Re-greased the rear bearing with high temp grease, and placed the new belt around drum. Make sure belt tensioning arm and spring are in place before replacing drum. Carefully insert the drum into rear bearing so as not to disturb the tensioning arm and spring. Lay on the floor and reach around each side of the motor to place the belt on the drive motor pulley and then carefully pull back tensioning arm to get the belt on that pulley. (This is the hardest part of the job.) Replaced the front and top covers in reverse order of above, plugged it in and it workes like new!

Dryer would not tumble and would trip the thermal overload protection

I disassembled the dryer as described in many of the other repair stories. One tip that I would like to share is to test the motor prior to assembly. I did this by removing the idler pulley and getting the drive belt clear of the motor pulley. Unfortunately I had already disassembled the top and front of the dryer so I had to jumper the door switch to test the motor. If you do it in this manner be very careful to ensure no wiring is shorted or going straight to ground. I found that my motor was shot and replaced it at the same time as doing the other repairs. I used a small magnet to hold the grounding ball in place while replacing the drum bearing, this worked very well and I was able to quickly assemble the parts without an "extra set of hands."

Squeaking screeching groaning

First I removed the top, custom on mine, as it was originally stacked. Then two screws inside near the top come out, and the front was pulled out at the top and lifted off the clips at the base. Best access to the belt tensioner is to remove the air intake panel on the back.

With the belt off the tensioner and motor pulley, the drum can be lifted up and out through the front after removing three screws from the inside that hold the drum to the bearing assembly. The original screws are #2 square/phillips combo, better to reuse than the new phillips only ones if a square drive bit is used.

Then the bearing assembly comes off by removing two screws from the back. For reassembly, there is a steel ball that goes in under the plate in the back. It sits in a hole in the plastic shell of the bearing assembly to help align it. I stuck it in place with grease from the bearing kit, and used my knee to hold the plate over it while holding the bearing assembly with one hand and starting the screws with the other.

The basket seal and drum glide felt were peeled off. Repeated soaking with a citrus based goo remover, scraping with a putty knife, and a little scrubbing with an abrasive plastic pad got the old glue off. A rinse and quick wipe with acetone prepared the surface for the new adhesive. It only needed a minute to get tacky, before the new seal and glide were stuck on.

Squeaking drum

Remove the top by using a putty knife and pressing in the tabs on either side. Open front door and remove three screws on inside of drum. Lift drum up and off of the bearing guide/hanger. I removed the motor cover, lower rear left and took a picuture of how it was threaded through the spring pulley system before removing the drum. I replaced the belt while I had the drum out. I also replaced the felt guides while I was in there. There are several good appliance sites out there - I really liked the Appliance guru. Try it out. You will be happy.

Dryer was leaving brown stains on clothing

The directions for repair were easy and straight forward.
The repair was quick but extra time was needed for the adhesive to dry. The dryer has been working like a charm ever since, although it seems slightly out of balance now and makes a squeaking noise while turning. I checked the adjustable feet and one is stuck. Seem like a quick liquid wrench project.

Squeeking/ grinding really bad

First I pryed up the top cover then opened the access cover on the rear to remove the belt from the drum. Next I removed the front of the dryer to have access to remove the drum. I then removed the 3 screws that hold the drum to the rear drum bearing assembly and pulled the drum through the front of the dryer. I then removed the bearing and proceded to remove the ground ball and reassembled in reverse steps.

Squeaking, got worse and worse

Printed out what others said, took pictures of everything as I took it apart. I went slow. It all worked the first time I put it back, WOW!
Be careful if you are working with a gas line, use two wrenches to disconnect, less stress on the pipe.

Terrible shrieking noise and drum stopped moving when under a load

flipped up the top of dryer, turned it 180 so it sat on the washer. next I took out the two screws that held the front panel on. panel popped off and drum came up and then out of bearing assembly. two screws and the bearing assembly came off; it was melted and deformed. The metal on the back of drum was also deformed and worn oblong. then it was back together taking the old piece off watching how it was on the dryer and putting the new one on the same way.
