Dryer eating belts

Disconnected power and vent. Laid dryer on it's back, removed two philips screws near base of dryer. Lifted and removed front, removed four hex-head bolts and freed wires to door-latch switch.
Pulled drum, pryed-off locking-clip on drum roller, replaced roller. New belt was a bugger, needed 4 hands, but girlfreind (whose dryer it is), plus illustration for belt was from rear of dryer which meant I had to reverse everything, no fun.

Bad rumble from dryer

I had disassembled more of the dryer than was actually necessary. I removed the housing retaining the blower wheel assembly (about 7 screws). Removed the compression clip with pliers and then the snap ring with snap ring pliers. The old blower wheel came off the motor D shaft easily. Replaced blower wheel and re-assembled in reverse order. The belt was dry and cracked so I replaced it as a precautionary measure. The belt is easily routed around the tensioner wheel when accessed through the rear access panel. Voila! No more rumble and about 3x more hot air discharged to the vent.

The blower wheel had stopped turning (the plastic had broken where it mounts to the motor shaft) the tumbler and motor belt was well worn and needed to be replaced, and I decided to replace the drum roller wheels because of the age of the dryer.

To start, I didn't know how to open the dryer cabinet, so I went online and typed in the model of my dryer and found your company. What a life saver, your videos are excellent! They showed me exactly what to do, what tools I needed and how to remove the old parts and reinstall the new ones. From start to finish, it was a great experience working with your company and I have already told a co-worker about PartSelect! I'm hooked! I will order from your company again, the next time one of my appliances is in need of repair.

Dryer was very noisy

I ordered the parts and followed the video tutorial. I also replaced the blower as well. It was easy to do and I saved myself probably over a hundred dollars. It is now nice and quiet! Thanks!

I heard a thumping noise as the belt may be fraying thinking that was the case I ordered the belt and two roller kits for the drum thinking this would fix the problem

DISCONNECT POWER CORD (BE SAFE)

removed two screw at the bottom of the front panel disconnect the wires from that cover and remove the front cover. then remove the four screws from drum support, filter screen. Then remove the drum support I chose to disconnect the wire as I came to them. The job could be done with out unplugging any wires but I find it easer to just unplug the wires and have the items out of the way. Slide drum out about five inches this will allow you to remove the old belt. then remove the drum and set it aside. remove snap ring from roller shaft remove roller and washers the new one comes with two fiber washer place one washer on shaft then roller and the other washer fasten it with snap ring repeat this with the other roller replace drum in the same way you removed it placing the belt on the motor first then place it over the drum carefully lift the drum in to place taking care that the belt is not twisted and in the right location. now for the noise I was trying to fix during disable I discovered that the noise was actually the blower wheel, this wheel has a flat side molded into it to fit on the shaft which has a flat side on the shaft my old blower wheel had rounded off and was slipping on the shaft purchased a new one and replaced it. This has corrected the problem and now it runs like new the job was easy and took about 2 hrs to complete total cost about $65.00. Any one could do this it is not all that hard. Where I live the service call would be $100.00 plus labor which would be $120.00. So by doing it myself I saved $220.00. If I can do it so can you.

Belt finally broke after over 10 years.

Followed directions on the package. As a senior citizen I guess it took a little longer than a younger man. As of today, the dryer is working like new.

Very noisy, especially on startup.

I ordered a new belt, idler pulley and drum rollers. When I got it apart, I found the blower fan was slipping on the shaft, so replaced that also. Runs very quietly now. Fantastic service from Parts Select.

Lots of squeaks & squeals during cycle

I knew it needed new roller spring washers, so I ordered two, with a set of roller shaft washers & the two drum glide kits. The parts arrived two days later. When I opened the parts the roller spring washers I needed were not included. The parts bags were labeled as Washer,Spring (roller shaft washers), but were really just the fiber Roller Shaft washers that ride next to the roller.
If you look close, the part numbers for the ROLLER SHAFT WASHERS or WASHER,SPRING(ROLLER(Roller Shaft Washers) are the same,
PS2031959.....

There is a metal spring washer ( a bent washer )that goes on the roller shaft first. This pushes the roller out & gives it some horizontal play.
Then a fiber washer goes on either side of the roller.
I have replaced all of these every 4 or 5 years in the past.
One of the existing ones I had was steel & the older original type were copper, which wear very thin then get cut into two separate rings.
This causes a lot of squealing & squeaks.

Since I didn't have two good springs, I had to use the good steel one & the remainder of the best copper one I had. I will have to find some new ones & install them later. There are a few minor squeaks but nothing like what it was.

The glides were shot some time ago & earlier this year I had cut the teflon off of one side since it had worn out & folded over it self.
The only problem with replacing these was that I had to go get a new pop rivet gun, since the last one I bought was hiding that day.

Belt was hard and made a squeaking nosie, rubber pads were o good because of age.

First I disconnect the electrical power, 2nd disconnect the vent tube, 3rd removed the four screws on the back of the dryer, 4th removed the front panel and disconnect the wires for the door switch, 5th remove the cover that holds the drum inplace, 6th remove the belt, 7th vacum all parts to remove any lint and dirt from the inside of dryer, 8th reassemble the parts in the reverse order. this took me about 55 minutes from start to finish. The parts were right which made the job very easy. The rubber foot pads were easy, just remove the old ones and install the new ones. Thank you for the right parts.
