Loud noise when the dryer would start up.

I opened the top of the dryer, removed the door and held up the dryer drum. I placed the new belt over the drum and placed the pulley assembly on.
I then bolted the front door back on and placed the top back down.

Broken belt

I brought in a broken belt to a local parts store to replace it. They gave me one that was too large. When I returned the belt for a larger one, the clerk measured it against the one I returned, determined that is was shorter, but mistakenly gave me the same belt back. I couldn't go back a third time so I ordered online with Partselect. The part was much cheaper and arrived the next day. I put the belt on in minutes. Your products are great and your service is quick.

Thank you!

My dryer would not tumble

I can honestly say this site saved me over $200. I am a divorced mother of three and i am not mechanically inclined. My daughter is a freshman in college and i need to save all of the money i can. Not only did this site help me diagnosis the problem but it taught me how to repair my dryer ALL BY MYSELF. The parts with shipping cost under $33. I took the cabinet apart using the instructions provided by this site and i replaced the belt and the idler assembly. I was so proud of myself and so was my 17 yr old son and my daughter. The entire repair from taking it apart replacing the parts and putting the dryer back together took less than 60 minutes. Sears would have charged me $139 just to come out for one hour and that does not include the parts. I found $13.65 in change in my dryer. If i subtract the money i found from what i paid...it only cost me $20 something dollars to fix my dryer. I saved well over $200 dollars...not to mention i did not have to sit for 4 hours & wait for a tech to come to my house.

The dryer just quit working

My husband is the repairman here, not I. My dryer just seemed to quit working. He pops the top and determines it wasn't the belt. He takes off the front and removes the drum -- not so easy in our little, crowded laundry room. He turns the motor and determines that it is difficult to turn, so we must need a new motor. I go to parts select on my computer in the adjoining bedroom to read instructions on how to change the motor. You have to take off the back, and then remove the intake cover, I tell him. He does so. "Oh," he says "what's this? I think I see the problem." Suddenly, he bolts from the room and runs to the kitchen. I hear him furiously scrubbing his hands. He comes back, gets a long necked pair of needle-nose pliers from the garage, reaches into the dryer, and extracts a very big, ugly, and very dead rat. EEEWWWW! Mr. Rat had apparently crawled in thru the dryer exhaust, which is vented on our roof, and wrapped himself around the motor. The motor, by the way, was fine after all. Thank heavens he got to the repair quickly before, well, you know! So he determined that we may as well replace the little gizmo the drum belts go on, as it was worn, so he did that easily and I was back in the laundry business, so to speak. Thank you, Parts Select, for your speedy delivery and helpful repair stories. I doubt this story will help anyone, but it may get a laugh.

Belt broke, then idler pulley

My dryer belt broke and we bought a belt from some other appliance store. Well, after putting on the new belt we broke the idler pulley. Rather than running to the store again (30 miles away), I bought the part online using PartSelect. The part search was easy, the exploded views were very helpful, and the online shopping was great! Delivery was fast too! I'm happy to say my dryer is back online thanks to PartSelect!

Slipping dryer drive belt

Part Select was Great ! I ordered on Sunday and my - better than original - parts arrived tuesday.
I'd definately order here again.

First unplug your dryer for safety sake. This model's top simply lifts with moderate pressure applied to the top front deck to release the spring tabs. Next use a small flat bladed tool to release the plastic tab on the door electrical connector and unplug. Using a nutdriver or socket set, unscrew the two 5/16" (or 8mm) hex screws located on the top inside of the front panel. Support the drum with one hand while pulling the front panel out and upward. For ease you can block up the front of the drum with something suitable in the 5 to 6" range.
Remove the belt by simply compressing the tension arm / roller by hand (there's not much tension), removing from the motor drive pulley, and finally from the drum. Installation is the reverse, just remember to give the drum a few rotations by hand to make sure the belt is seated and running true.

Dryer tub wouldn't turn

I didn't, my son-in-law did. He replaced the belt and the pulley, and within 5 minutes he had my dryer together and running. He was so impressed with your service that he put you in his favorites on his computer. Thanks

Drum stopped revolving - broken belt suspected

I looked at two or three repair stories on your site and followed the advice given there.

Three major things helped:

First, access to the innards by lifting the top AFTER RELEASING THE CLIPS AT THE FRONT USING A PUTTY KNIFE or similar - very helpful.

Second, instructions on removing the front panel and pulling out the drum were helpful

Third, a caution about checking and re-seating the rear drum seal using a putty knife or similar - I wouldn't have noticed that the seal was curled over in a couple of places without that warning - I'm sure it frequently gets bent over when replacing the drum.

PartSelect was very helpful and very quick in getting me the parts needed. I didn't realize I needed the idler pulley until after I received the belt I had ordered, but the pulley came so fast it really didn't matter - gave me time to clean out bags of lint - the worst part of the job.

Dryers are very simple, but hardy and enduring machines - enjoyed making a 30+(?) year old machine run like new.

I immediately went to Parts Select.com and found the replacement parts, ordered them and in a couple of days had my dryer going with minimum expense! My wife is Happy!!! that makes me Happy, too!

Belt making noise

Removed screws holding the lint screen,using a small pry bar poped the top of the drier and using a nut driver removed two screws that hold the frount panel on , carefuly lift it so the drum fall. then you might want to prop the drum with a coffee can while you get everything ready. Bend the idler tentioner back remove the belt carefuly release the tention, lift the tentioner out of its holder. Replace the belt and install the new and improved ider pulley and reasemble. Before you put the top down, make sure the drum turns freely, the rear seal on the back of the drier might be turned under the bulk head use a puddy knife and turn the drum counterclockwise one full turn and your ready to replace the top.

Tumbler in dryer was not tumbling

We discovered that the front of the dryer popped off after removing screws at the bottom of the front panel.
The tumbler seal had rotted away, the drum support rollers were frozen and the belt had broken. My husband did most of the work. I assisted, this was a 2 man job. We removed the old seal glue with Goo Gone, we put the new seal on with both of us working on it using clothes pins. Then we glued the new seal with one of us holding the seal up while the other put the glue under it. My husband replaced the drum support rollers, got the idler pulley ready and put the belt around the drum. He lifted and I guided the tumbler (drum) into position. I held the drum while he installed the idler pulley assembly. I kept holding the drum while he got the front panel, put it in position and re-connected the electrical wires on it. Once we had that done he was able to install the front panel. Then came the moment for the test drive, and what do you know but it worked!! We didn't have to spend $$ for a new dryer, it cost us some time (probably around 5 hours total, taking apart, ordering parts and putting together), and a little over $100!! We were happy!
