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.

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.
I placed shims in it to temporarily repair it and ordered replacements from you for when the time comes that I have to replace the fan and other wear items.

Watched the video, removed the front panel, removed the 4 screws from the tumbler frame, and removed the blower cover. Snap ring off, old blower fan off, new one on, new compression ring, snap ring on, Put back together. Done.Old belt and idler were OK. What surprized me was the amount of lint, fuzz, coins and dust in the blower housing. This was potentially a fire hazard and now its working perfectly and some peace of mind from a fire standpoint. The video really made it happen for me.
Utilizing the online schematics, I disassembled the dryer, marked and disconnected all wires, and removed the drum. Once the drum was removed, I thoroughly cleaned the inside of the dryer and removed all lint accumulation from the heating element, motor, and blower fan areas. I replaced the front guides and drum support rollers/shafts, belt and idler pulley. I reassembled the dryer and it worked! Be sure to lay all the screws and parts in a logical sequence as you disassemble the dryer, it makes reassembly much easier.
Disassembled dryer front cover,took exhaust part loose,unplugged wires(2)from door switch.Removed drum and belt.Inspected felt on both ends.Removed drum support rollers one at a time and replaced fiber washer,roller,fiber washer and lock ring.Put belt around drum and slid in place.Replaced exhaust housing.Careful on this step Felt on exhaust motor must fit properly.Put front cover back in place.Went to back of machine took off small panel,got belt in right positionand attached to motor and idler pulley.Replaced small cover.Now it works great and quiet.
just like the video on the website. It would have helped if the info included that the culprit was likely the worn shaft above the heater and not the roller itself. I replaced both rollers and the belt as a percaution, but expect I will have to replace that shaft soon. I will use the good roller from the other side that I replaced and just replace the worn shaft when that happens.
The process was pretty methodical. This is a washer/dryer stack unit, and the dryer is on top. I removed the top 2 screws on the dryer front cover, and pulled it down, while being careful of the connecting wires that are attached. I also removed the lower front panel (it angles in at the base), and pulled that out. There are a few plates to remove (one steel and one pale green) and as I removed them, I had labels for the screws on a few pages to keep track of where each screw and plate went. Then, finally, I removed the screws that held the main tumbler in place. There are four. From that point, pulling the tumbler out is relatively easy, as long as you turn it as you pull it out, so the belt can slip off. The only real problem I had was the expanding washer that holds the drum roller support from slipping off. It has to be pulled apart so that it can be removed from the roller shaft, and when I did it, the piece snapped off, and fell into the inside of the dryer bottom, and I had to hunt for it. But once that was done, I put the new roller support on, and it was completed. I didn't need the other parts. It was the Drum support roller that had rusted.
Unplugged dryer. Removed top, face and drum. Using snap ring pliers, I removed the old drum supports and installed the new ones. Next I removed the cover to the blower wheel housing. Then using snap ring pliers and regular pliers I removed the worn blower wheel and installed the new one by reverse steps. Lastly the belt. I put the belt around the drum , placed the drum in the dryer and had my son hold it steady as I threaded the belt around the motor and idler pulley. All that's left is to put the face and cover back. The repair was simple and the dryer is running like a champ. I would suggest having some snap rings handy as I had to replace them as well.
It was simply a matter of finding the two screws at the lower front face. After that, the dryer come apart easily. The drum support rollers were held on with one nut each. i lubricated them with Dow Corning silicon hi temp grease. The belt was installed the same as the old one was removed. Insructions were easy to follow as was the re assembly of the dryer. All the parts fit correctly and were the right replacement items.
First things first... UNPLUG THE DRYER! Tilt back at like 45 degree angle. Remove the two screws from bottom front. Remove front cover. Disconnect wires from heating element making sure to mark what wires attach where, then the two bolts from the heating element. Replace heating element and attach wires to new element. Take belt off of motor from back. Remove four bolts holding front of the drum. Remove drum. Remove C-clips from Drum Support Rollers and then rollers. Install new rollers washers and C-clips. Put drum back and place belt, flat side to drum, on drum using two pieces of tape to hold in place. Put front drum cover back on and bolt on. Put front of dryer back on. From back of dryer feed belt onto motor. Plug in and check to see if all is working correctly.
Took the two screws out of the front of the dryer. Tilted the bottom out until the clips in the top came loose. Disconnected the door switch and put the front panel aside. Removed 4 screws holding front drum support in place using small socket set. Pulled drum support off and set aside. Took note of how the belt ran through the idler pulley, pulled up idler pulley until the belt slipped off idler and motor pulley. Drum pulls straight out of dryer. With the drum out there is plenty of room to get to the screw holding the idler pulley arm in place, remove it so you can pull the old pulley and washers off shaft. Reassemble using new parts and reattach idler arm. Put the drum back in place, wrap new belt around drum (non groove side against drum), thread the belt around the motor shaft and work it back around the idler pulley. This was the hardest part of the job since your working in tight quarters and you can only fell what your doing.One the belt is in place, rotate the drum by hand to make sure the belt tracks properly. Finish cleaning up any dust accumulation inside the dryer/fan assembly. Reattach the front drum support, reattach the door switch wires and reassemble the front panel by tilting the panel until the top catches, swing down into place and attach bottom with the two screws. Done!
