First, leaned dryer back and removed 2 screws at bottom front panel.Then removed 2 screws at bottom of door assembly. Pulled bottom door assembly forward and down.Disconnected "can't go wrong" wiring connectors.Then removed old cylinder glide rivets at bottom of cylinder using drill motor with 1/4" drill.I installed new felt pads on new cylinder glides. Then installed glides with rivet gun.Reconnected wire harness.Installed door assembly and lower panel assembly.BACK IN BUSINESS! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
After removing the front of the dryer, I took out the front assembly where the seal and glide brackets attatch. I replaced the bad cylinder glide by drilling the old rivets out and re-riveting the new glide in place from the back side. I then replaced the felt pads and glides on the glide brackets and glued a new cylinder seal around the front assembly. I reccomend having 4 hands for placing the cylinder seal around the assembly with fresh glue.
1. I removed the lower front panel.2. Carful remove the front door making not of which wires whent were of the switch3. Removed the front bulkhead.4. Drilled out the rivits that held the bracket in place.5 Use a pop rivit gun and 1/8 in pop rivit and washer.6 Installed the felt pad and the drum guide. 7 Put the whole thing back together.I love your web site the exploded diagrams make fixing my dryer quite easy. I do it. so for under $50 my dryer is almost like new.
I started at the bottom and removed the two nut screws that support the bottom section of the front of the dryer. Then I removed the two nut screws that supports the next section and disconnected the two wires ( making note of wich terminals each wire went to). Then I removed the lint trap housing( three phillips head screws hold it in place from the inside). Next ,I removed the face plate( held in place by 4 nut screws and two metal tabs at the bottom). Then I took the old tub brackets and felt seal off of the face plate . Next ,spray adheisive arond the ring of the face plate and install the new felt seal, then the new brackets and dryer glides and felt pads. Last, re-install all components.
Unplug dryer. Remove lower and upper front panels [remove wires from upper right door switch]. Lift up on belt idle pulley and take belt off pulley/motor. Remove front bulkhead and dryer lint/vent ducting. Note position on drum and remove belt. Unbolt top panel front 2 screws to allow room to remove drum. Remove drum. Take lock rings off drum support rollers and remove old rollers. Clean roller shafts and apply hi-temp grease [I used ultra hi temp brake grease-ceramic based-small packet can be purchase fm auto parts store]. Re-install new support rollers and lock rings. Re-install drum and slide belt back into position. Remove and replace felt pads and glides into inside of front bulkhead. Reinstall front bulkhead and top panel [connect door switch wires]. Install belt around idle tension pulley. Re-install lower panel. All parts fit perfectly and delivered quickly. Belt had just been replaced previously.
The on-line video showed the dryer top being loosened from the front as the first step. On our dryer, the bottom panel in the front needed to be removed first - two screws, then the front panel(with door)- two more screws and two wires for the switch. Next was the front guide panel - four screws. The glide brackets bolted to this panel and the felt seal was glued to it. Reverse the process to put it all together, and my wife was happy again.
Removed top and front panels, reached in by motor and removed belt from motor, removed drum and replaced slids and back drum wheels. re-assembled the front and top.
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.
Thanks to this website we were able to not only find the parts, but a video that told us how to take the dryer apart. Unfortunately, between the time we diagnosed the problem, ordered the parts, and they arrived, the drum had worn into the front bulkhead. We were able to file the sharp parts dull and install the brackets, felt pads, and drum glides along with the felt seal, but ended up breaking the dryer door switch. Once that came in, it has been working. I'm not sure how long the repair will last, but it was much better than buying a new one.
disassembled found bunch of worn out parts . I went to website wich was very helpful found all . my worn out parts online. dryer is very quiet now I wish i would have done it sooner.P.S. going to fix my dads dryer next. thank you
