I found a shrieking noise repair on this website, followed their instructions (winging it a bit) and was able to fix my dryer for the price of those parts - excellent!!! As the other instructions said, mark EVERY wire.I have additional instructions - MARK EVERY SCREW you remove. I had 4 extras when I was finished and now I'm a bit worried about where they belong :)
I pried open the top of the dryer with a screwdriver. i took digital pictures (for reference)of 3 sets of wires needing to be unplugged during repair. I removed 6 nut screws to get to the repair. took the barrel out, replaced the pully wheel and belt paying attention to how they were originally. The pully was a little awkward to take off and put on, but not bad. My dryer purrs now. yahoooo!
Identified Problem by using silicone spray on drum bearing wheels, when noise stopped I knew bearings were bad. Removed drum per PartsSelect diagram of my dryer then removed wheels, and bearing shaft.Will need a snap ring pliers with small holes to remove snap rings. I ordered new shafts, washers,snap rings,drum wheels, and belt. Installing belt use two hands and make sure tension bar is correct review belt locations before repair. Also cleaned and vacumned inside of Dryer. Remember to unplug, I did not and when door was removed I caused a short that blew fuse, lucky that I did not damage dryer in process. Working well now with no nose.
Found the belt was making the noise because it was badly cracked. Took the front of the dryer off and removed the s/s tumbling drum. Checked the ideler wheels and the tension wheel for wear and found none. Re-assembled the dryer with the new belt. After this was completed I replaced the time control in the top panel. This was rather easy as it only slips out after taking apart the box. After this the machine was switched on and every think ran quietly again. The discriptions and pictures used in thier web site is very helpful and shipment was very quick.
Unscrew front, detach electrical, tilt back top, remove drum. remove retaining ring and glide, replace ring and guide remove old felt seal, adhere new felt seal with contact cement, remove what was left of felt pads, replace pads and new glides, reassemble.
as described in video. Very well done. Thank you
Super Simple. Remove lower front panel (2 screws). Remove front door & panel (2 more screws). Disconnect push on wire connectors after marking each side with a sharpie pen (for easy re-assembly). Top hinges up towards the rear and rests against the wall. Lift out the drum. Remove snap rings on the shaft that holds the guide wheels at the rear of the drum. remove wheels. One of the shaft pieces that holds the wheel was shot so I replaced that (2 screws). Put new wheels back on. This was actually fairly hard. the new shaft seemed to have a larger receiving end. with hammer and lube I eventually got it on. Re-assemble in reverse order. took about 20 minutes. the only special tool was snap ring pliers (could easily get snap rings off with a flat screw driver.
Unplug the dryer.Removed top. Then removed wires from switch to door (make sure you mark them). Removed front door and bottom panel. Removed lint trap assembly.All bolt heads were 5/16 and used putty knife for top 2 spring clips. Removed belt (remember how it goes) and took out drum. Next clean and vacuum everything really good. Have a good set of retaining ring pliers, these are used to remove the 2 drum support rollers and idler pulley. Drum support rollers have FRONT marked on them, make sure they are facing out. Always make sure retaining rings are locked in there grooves. Next put new belt on drum and place drum back in dryer. Next put put belt on motor pulley and push up on idler puller to run belt under it (this is probably the hardest part). Now just go in reverse order in putting everything back on. Always make sure to double check everthing like the belt make sure its on right and not twisted and check drum make sure its on support rollers and is set right when lint trap assembly is installed and wires reconnected. When cleaning i used a vacuum and an air compressor to blow out all the debris from the motor and other areas.
My problem was that my AMANA dryer would not heat. The site suggested testing the two thermostats so I opened the dryer but didn’t follow the instructions in the video tutorial on the site since my AMANA is different. I used a nut driver and needle-nosed pliers for the whole job. Here’s what I did:1. Unplugged the dryer.2. Disconnected the exhaust pipe at the dryer.3. Pulled dryer away from back wall about two feet.4. Removed the two bottom panel screws (floor level) and removed panel.5. Removed the two door panel screws and removed door panel by pulling out at the bottom until the two spring clips released from the top panel.6. Noted the colors of the wires going to the door switch and removed (green, black and white from left to right).7. Noted the colors of the wires going to the lamp and removed (bottom - black and top - red.)8. Removed the two top panel screws, lifted up the top panel and leaned it against a support.9. Removed the four bulkhead screws and carefully lifted up and removed the bulkhead being sure to support the drum. Took note of the belt path around the motor and idler pulleys.10. Reached under the drum and took the belt off the idler pulley and motor drive pulley.11. Used the belt to lift and remove the drum through the front opening.I noticed that the internal vent pipe had become disconnected (which probably caused internal overheating) so I fixed that.I then removed the wires to the thermostats and tested both for continuity. The limit thermostat was bad. I also saw that the belt was becoming cracked. I ordered a new limit thermostat and belt.Installation of the new parts was a snap. I removed the old thermostat with the nut driver and replaced with the new one and pushed the wire connectors back on. Replacing the belt was a little trickier but not a problem. (Be sure to route the new belt correctly as noted on Step 9 and place ribbed surface next to drum.)I closed up the dryer by reversing the opening steps.
Leaned machine back and put blocking under machine to elevate. Removed two screws from front of bottom panel. Lift panel out and set aside. Next remove two bottom screws from door frame. Pull bottom of frame out and up to release. Remove wire clips from door light and switch. Set door frame aside. Inside drum, take three phillips head screws out, that hold filter frame in, remove filter frame. Next remove four front screws on drum alignment face plate. Set aside. Grasp drum and pull forward, off back guide rollers. Drum will drop down a little, reach in around drum and slide belt off. Remember to look in under drum to see proper placement of belt aroun motor shaft and idler pulley. Replace new belt around drum with ribs against drum. Route belt around motor shaft pulley, pull idler pulley toward motor and place belt around pulley smooth top runs against pulley. Reinstall everything you removed. Connect wires to door.
Removed bottom front panel (two nuts)Disconnected wiring to front door and removedRemove the two nuts holding the top panel to the front and lifted top out of the wayDisconnected the drive belt from the motorLift the drum up and out of the machineReplaced parts, cleaned cabinet and reassembled with new parts
Was very simple after watching the repair video provided o you site. Went exactly as described. Will deffinately use your parts again and will highly recomend it to anyone else who needs parts.
Basically, Followed the instructions in the Video for Belt replacement. I found out however that the Tensioner was also broken aand needed replacement, and this required the snap wring pliers. also spindle on motor was stripped and had to use "lockTite" to repair that. Overall was far better "doining it myself" than paying for repai service which would have cost several hundred $ in costs. This increased my confidence level to know that as long as parts are available I will always be able to repair this appliance!
I followed the belt replacement video and voila, the job was done!
