Lint screen was broken

This Was pretty simple, removed the old broken screen. There are two torque screws on the outside where the bottom of the door is, I removed them so I could move the screen on the inside so I could clean out the excess lint. vacuumed out the lint, tightened the screws back in and slid the new screen in and it was done.

Original lint filter frame was broken in two places and fabric was torn

We pulled out the old lint filter, cleaned out all the lint that had gotten down inside the dryer due to the broken filter. We then replaced it with the new filter. It is now drying much better and the lint is not getting down inside the machine any longer.

Noise, shaking, from foreign object in the blower, from operating without the lint filter

Lint filter replacement is routine maintenance. operating without a filter causes problems, a dryer sheet was sucked thru the opening and into the blower wheel, causing a lot of noise, and shaking because of the unbalance. I popped the top of the machine up, removed two screw holding the front in place, removed the front, gaining access to blower.
Removed the offending sheet, straighted the bent fin, and put everything back together again. Installeed the new filter, now it runs smooth, and quiet. mission accomplished.

Minor annoyances I lived with for far too long

Haven't used the bottom door shelf of my refrigerator for years, lived with a lint filter on my hand-me-down dryer that was taped with electrical tape since the day I inherited it, and loaded and unloaded my dishwasher with irritation because of a broken clip on the bottom rack. Ordered the parts from PartSelect and got them in just 2 days. Fixed all three problems in about 15 minutes total. It's like getting new appliances...why didn't I do this sooner?

Original lint filter was separating at the edges

Removed the old lint filter and slid in the new one. It took me longer to get the box open to get the new lint filter out than it did to actually replace the part.

Dry was heating intermittently at first and then stopped heating.

I first confirmed that the ingitor was working (because I could see it glow with the lights off at the bottom of dryer). I read within Parts Select that intermittent heating was likely the coils and that I could test their resistance to confirm that this was the problem. I removed the coils (very easy) and thenI checked their resistance with a tester. The resistance on one of them was reading 600 ohms instead of the required 1300 ohms. So I replaced them both and presto it works fine. I also took the opportunity to thoroughly clean out the lint (accessible with the front panel removed) and I replaced the lint filter which was ripped and the gasket around the door which was missing a piece. All very easy to do and parts select made it a cinch. For safety I made sure that the gas and electric were off before I did any of this work. oh, I also levelled the foot which made my wife happy.
