Loud rumbling noise

1st watched videos on making repairs on installing drum support roller kit,front glide kit and replacing tumbler belt.These repairs took approx 30 minutes but, didn't stop the rumbling. Went to a blog site that stated if these repairs didn't stop the noise I should take the tumbler belt off and see if the noise is coming from the motor area it was and further investigation revealed it was the plastic blower wheel,the flat spot on the blower shaft had worn out causing the blower wheel to rumble and vibrate. This repair took 15 minutes after watching the video on blower wheel repair. Runs better then new.

When the dryer grumbles check the blower wheel too.

If your dryer is making a rumbling noise, change the blower wheel. It's plastic and the heating and cooling cycles causes the keyway in the plastic to give out and the wheel just spins causing the noise and the slower dry time. The other parts I replaced see below. Like many other repairs, remove screws below dryer door. Mark all wires and locations for re-assembly. Next remove front tumbler/lint screen assembly (4 sheet metal screws 2/L 2/R. Work belt off back of tumbler and remove. Use flathead screw driver to release tabs that hold felts on both front and back tumble supports. Make sure you know rotation of tumbler and install new felts so the overlap goes in direction of spin. Use a drum stick or 3/8 ratchet extension, something dull and flat to press tabs back down on felts. A screwdriver could slip off and tear cloth. Next drill out heads of the rivets on the glides and remove teflon glide and cork backer. Make sure all rivet material is removed front and back. Install new cork and glide. Rivet one side back in, then the other. Repeat on 2nd glide. Re-assemble dryer. Super smooth, super quiet.

Belt had broken and drum wouldn't rotate.

Followed the instructions and printed out the diagram of belt rotation from your website. This was my first attempt at repairing a dryer-should take less time with future repairs. The inside of dryer need cleaning as it is over 20 years old.

Dryer had been making a loud squealing noise then the drum stopped turning.

I wasn't sure how to access the belt inside so I went online looking for a diagram. I came accross the PartSelect website and found the awesome video instructions on how to disassemble, change each part and reassemble everything. I discovered I had a broken belt and the drum rollers were bad. I ordered the parts from PartSelect on a Wednesday and they arrived on that Friday. I started the repair on Saturday morning and following the video repair instructions a couple hours later my dryer was back in business for a very reasonable dollar amount. Thanks to PartSelect for making my repair so much easier!!

Broken belt

Removed the front of the dryer and the vent assembly that held the drum in place. Removed the drum and cleaned the interior of the dryer with vaccum cleaner. I then oile the drum rollers which were starting to get dry and squeeky. Slipped new belt over drum and re-installed the drum vent assembly and then the fron of the dryer. Opened the rear access of the dryer and completed the installation oc the belt over the motor drive pully and idler wheel. Returned dryer to working location and tested - all was well. Note - the installation instruction that came with the belt are not clear on having to open the rear access panel. The directions made it sound like you can actually do everything from the front side - not likely unless you have 4 foot arms the size of broom sticks! Once I open the rear and could actually see the motor and idler pulley it was easy to finish.

Belt needed to be replaced

Previous entries about how to change the belt were very helpful. It's true; the instructions included with the replacement belt are very helpful and accurate. I decided to pull the tumbler out in order to be able to see the motor and pulley. I then read the directions a number of times so that I was sure I understood how to loop the belt around the motor, pulley and tumbler; knowing that I would need to put the tumbler back in and then "work blind" by feeling the loop of the belt and work it around the motor and pulley. To prepare for this, I taught myself how to loop the belt first by looking at the motor/pulley and referring to the instructions. Then, I tried it a number of times with my eyes closed, in anticipation of not being able to see what I was doing once the tumbler was back in place. When I was sure I could loop the belt with my eyes closed, I replaced the tumbler, slid the belt over the tumbler as instructed and reached back under the lower-left portion of the dryer to loop the belt around the motor and/pulley. I had it within a couple of tries. Note, it was imperative to pull up on the pulley to its maximum with my right hand in order to be able to complete the loop around the pulley with my left hand. Once I was sure I had the belt in place, I reassembled the front of the dryer and then took off the back access panel to spot-check the placement of the belt around the motor and pulley. I'd done it correctly. Additional note: while I had the tumbler out, I sprayed wd40 on the rotors since they have been sounding kind of "grindy". I wiped excess from the rubber surface of the rollers and surrounding areas. It worked like a charm and now the dryer is quieter than it has been since I inherited with the house I bought -4 years ago.

Broken tumbler belt

We had to take the tumbler out because we needed to see where the pulleys were. The directions for threadiing the belt around the idler pulley and motor pulley weren't clear. It took us quite a while to figure out that the belt had to be threaded back into the left side of the motor pulley after it was guided around the idler pulley. Once we figured that out, the directions made sense.

Broken belt

Removed the screws that hold the front panel, removed the two screws tha hold the top lid. Then removed the four front screws that hold the tub in place. Placed the belt around the tub 1.5 inches from the back screws on the tub where dark tracks from the old belt was showing. After that I secured the tub in place by mounting the front panel that holds the tub in place with the four screws. Then opened a small rear panel that has four screws and placed the belt around the motor as shown on the diagram where the belt came in. It was easier doing it from the rear where I could see the motor.

The old belt was shredded and off the motor pulley

Removed the front two bottom screws of the front panel and rotated the panel upwards to remove; removed the top (not really necessary but much easier to access and clean) and leaned the top over on a table (keeping the wiring in place). Took off the front piece that holds the dryer tub, removed the dryer tub and cleaned all inside (it was filthy after 27 years).

To reinstall, put the belt on the dryer tub, placed the tub in position, put the belt on using the access panel in the back, and then installed the front part that holds the tub in place (4 screws, two on each side). Put the top back on (2 bolts) and then replaced the front panel.

The dryer still has a slight squeak so may be back for more parts. Should I have replaced the 2 rollers that hold the back of the dryer tub? They seemed okay, but we'll see.

Replacing any part will be easier the second time!

Horrible squeaking when running

I did it exactly the way the video showed it. I thought I would have to take it out to the pole barn and spend 5-6 hours on it. Because of the excellent video, it was much easier than I thougt it would be.

Bad belt, broke swittch taking door off

Basically, your website helped us to make the repair. When I selected the belt, the tips from other customers made it very easy both to take the machine apart and put back together. Putting the belt on was much easier than either my wife or I thought it would be. I have told all my friends about your website. I think it is great.

Thank you.

Motor had loud bearing noise

There are some really good blow-by-blow descriptions on how to go about the repair already listed here. The main thing is to go slowly and take your time. It was really quite logical for a weekend handy man. The best advise was to use a digital camera to record every step of the way as you disassemble the dryer. I referenced the pictures more than once when I was putting all of the wires and pieces back together. Also, I didn't have a pair of snap ring pliers. My neighbor told me how to use two ice picks to poke in the tiny holes and spread the rings...just be careful! Keep a vacuum handy, there will be lots of lint to clean up. The new motor, belt and pulley work great and I pleased with how well the repair went.

Loud noise when turning on dryer and while running

I followed the instructions on the site from another customer for my model...they were perfect and easy to follow. I was surprised at how easy it was to disassemble the dryer and replace the blower wheel. Like other customers, I took the time to completely clean out the dryer lint, oil all moving parts and replaced the tumbler belt just because I knew it had never been replaced. The dryer purrs like a kitten now and I'm so thankful for the great information provided on your website ref the disassembly and easy to follow instructions on the belt packaging.

The part arrived within 5 days, no hassle, no delay. I will definitely use your company for my next appliance repair.

Thanks
