My 11 year old grandson and I did the repair together. He had a blast and I did too. First we removed a bunch of screws that got us no closer to getting the machine apart than when we started. Then I remembered from the last time I had the machine apart that there are two screws just below the door, angled as not to be visable unless you know where to look. Once we removed those the from came off. We removed the wires for the door light and heat sensor, remembering the order of the wires for later reinstallation. Then we undid the bolts holding down the top. Once the top was removed we took off the belt and removed the drum. We used the retainer pliers to remove the retainer ring from the first roller. We removed the roller and also the shaft as this roller was the noise maker and the shaft was not in reusable condition. We installed a new shaft, roller washer, roller, another roller washer and then the retainer ring. We repeated the same process on the other roller, although we did not replace the shaft as it was in good condition. It turned out I did not need to order the shaft washers as the rollers came with washers. Oh well, its not a good job unless you have parts left over when you are done. Once we replaced the rollers we commenced reinstallation. But first we had to google for diagram of the proper belt installation, which we found and that got the drum and belt installed properly. Thankd god for the internet. Once we had the drum installed we put the machine back together in the opposite order we took it apart. An operational test showed we did the job right, no more squeaking. The only injury was my grandson cut his thumb right after I gave him the speech about watching where your hand is going to end up when that bolt breaks free. It broke loose and into the metal bracket went his thumb. Oh well it was a good lesson and it was not a bad cut. All in all a good repair.
Just took it apart and put new one in.
Took the dryer front panel off, loosened the drum, but not all the way out. Removed and checked the old rollers and shafts. Then put all the new shafts and rollers in. Put the drum back in place and front panel. Now it drys without a sound and this is a 25+ year old dryer.
remove front of dryer by unscrewing 2 screws and disconnected 2 wires.took small access panel off back of dryer . supported dryer drum from underneath and r & r old parts.ps before you put it all back together connect 2 wires from front door and turn dryer on to see if dryer is quiet.if so reassemble dryer in reverse order
It was nickle and dime. 2 screws off came the front cover. Turned the mechine around unbolted the shaft, installed the new one, done.
First, take off the door. That lets you take off the front panel. Remove three screws on each side and take out front panel that holds the drum in place. Be care full there are wires in the lower right corner. Reach your left hand in under the drum and undo the belt off the pulley. pull the drum strait out.A 7/16 wrench behind the roller shaft will remove shafts.I'm not a rocket scientist and it only took me an hour and fifteen min. PS The rollers are not bearings, so I could have let them scream for probably months, before I fixed it, . Good luck
Disconnected dryer, took off front, took off screen housing, took belt off pulley and lifted out tub. Removed snap rings from roller shaft and removed rollers. Then removed roller shafts. Reversed procedure and added new shafts, rollers, washers, nuts and snap rings. Put tub in and put belt on pulley. Replaced auto dry sensor before replacing lint screen housing and connected wiring. Put front on and connented dryer. Be very careful when working with roller shafts. My wrench slipped and I ended up with 8 stitches in my right hand. The sheetmetal is sharp!
disassembled dryer and removed and replaced rollers and shafts and installed new belt while i was at it. very easy fix, ordered parts from PARTS ELECT.COM , excellent website with great views of my machine made it east to order correct parts.very fast delivery , will use partselect again!
