I followed the repair videos which were very helpful and made the job easy to do. Anyone of average handyman skills should be able to perform the repair without difficulty.

The video from this site is perfect. Unplug dryer, remove front panel, unclip wires, remove next panel and pull the drum out. Replace drum support wheels using snap ring pliers (buy the pliers with changeable tips because the holes in the snap ring were pretty small on mine). Put it all back together. The trickiest part is getting the belt back on...just be sure it's not in the groove around the drum and pay attention to how to get it on the motor wheels. Good luck!
Replaced tensioner pulley along with felts, rollers, shafts, belt, and bearing pads. This dryer is 21 years old and has been serviced by myself at 15 years old. I replaced everything mentioned above except the tensioner pulley. This is a great running dryer but always remember to change the tensioner pulley when the unit is apart. Also have a third hand when mounting the belt and drum. Very easy other wise.
I followed the video instructions which were excellent. Dryer repair was a cinch.
Removed the door then removed front panel then removed 8 screws that held the drum in. At this point reached in and removed the snap ring on the wheels and replaced the washers and wheels. Then reassembled it.
Firts I had to take all the front parts off using a screwdriver and nutdriver then I loossen the belt to get the drum out then I had to use snapping ring pliers to remove the rollers and put the new ones in I cleaned the inside of the dryer then I put everything back in place. After all that I tested it and it worked really good it took me about an hour to do all that
It was easier than I thought. Unplugger the dryer, took the door off, front panel and inside front panel. I wiggled the drum out and vacuumed up all the lint. All I really needed to replace was the belt and idler wheel but replaced the 2 support rollers since I had gotten new ones. The belt had a twist in it and was rubbing and causing the idler to rub against its bracket, thus wearing them both out prematurely. I slapped it all back together and it never ran better. Thanks for the inexpensive parts and quick delivery. You guys are great!
repair was pretty easy, actually took more time removing the door and the front housing that actually changing out the rollersReceived parts within two days of order. thank you
My son did the repair work. He took off the door and then carefully unhooked the belt and removed the drum. Replacement on the drum roller kit went smooth, and he then oiled the idler pulley while he was in there. I now have a "quiet dryer" once again!!! Had orderd the wrong part to begin with, but was very easy to return, receive my credit and get the "right" replacement part. Great Service!!!!
Went on line and got a diagram of the dryer. Removed four screws around the door. Removed the door and then the front cover. The toughest part was removing the drum. Once I got that out of the way replacing the rollers was easy. Re installed the drum. The belt was a little tricky but worked. Then replaced the front of the dryer and the door. The dryer works fine now and no more noise. Pretty easy.
repairmen said to buy a new dryer! or replace the motor! DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!It was the spring washer that was rubbing against the metal that was causing the very loud noise. The fiber washer that is used on the shaft on both sides of the roller had worn though and allowed the metal-metal contact. The fiber washer wore out! The fiber washers are very cheap!!!! in comparison to a motor or new dryer!The drum rollers that support the rotating drum eventually wear out the fiber washer.UNPLUG THE DRYER, DISCONNECT THE VENTRemove the two screws on the lower front of the dryer panel, probably after you have tilted the unit backward. Remove the front panel by tilting out the bottom as there are two clips at the top. AFTER DOCUMENTING the CONNECTIONS - Disconnect the wires from the switch which is mounted on the front panel. Carefully put the dryer on its back - be careful of the dryer vent to avoid damaging your floor or dryer vent! Carefully pull the dryer drum up out of the dryer - as this is done the belt which moves the drum will fall away from the drum. I suggest before you remove the drum to eyeball the way the belt is tensioned and wrapped around the motor driveshaft, guard and tensioner. This will be the most difficult part of reassembling the machine. Some visual understand, maybe even pictures will help you later to get it installed correctly back into proper position... and it is NOT intuitive!Once the drum is removed, the rollers are accessible. Rotate each and find the squeaker!I recommend you replace the fiber washer on both, even though only one may be squeaking at this point (the other will be close to being worn out as well!).I will not document the replacement of these parts as the assembly seems well documented elsewhere. I suggest you remain using the spring washer if there - as the after factory replacements do not seem to provide spring washers.I would also suggest replacing the dryer drum belt, it is worn, after this many years, and putting in a new one will keep the dryer running for many more years. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER - USE IT
Removed two screws on bottom of front panel. Lifted bottom of front panel, it then it dropped down and was moved to the left side. Removed 4 socket screws and removed drum front cover. Replaced felt strip, removed belt and replaced. Replaced two idler pulleys in back. Removed blower housing front cover, removed blower wheel and replaced. Installed front drum glides after drilling out rivets from the old glides. Vacuumed entire inside thoroughly and reassembled.
Remove the door and front cover ,then the top flips up ,remove the front drum support then the drum,remove the snap ring and the pulley
After taking apart the machine (applianceaid.com has slideshows for most major appliances - very comforting and reassuring - highly recommended), I used a shop-vac to clean up all lint and dirt. After getting the retainer ring off the drum roller shaft (snap ring pliers highly recommended), I replaced the drum roller along with the glides which were completely worn through (rivet gun required). I reassembled the dryer to find that the drum wouldn't turn, so I placed another order for the other drum roller and replaced the belt too. Back in business.
First I removed the two screws on the front panel that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3" and disconnected the two wires. Find out the roller broken. Place an order with Partselect from friend recommendation. Fast delivery, replace the broken roller, reverse the process and test the sound of the dryer. Very satisfied with the parts. Thanks!
