Belt squealed

The diagrams on the Parts Select web site is what made it easy for me. I could see from the diagram how the dryer was assembled. I removed the two screws holding the top on then separated the front apart from the drum. I did have to remove the panel in the back where the power connects to access the drive pulley and belt tensioner. I slid the old belt off and simply reversed the procedure for the new one. Put it back together and it runs beautifully.

I also installed a new door gasket with no tools. Now it does not leak lint from the fronf door.

Dryer would not tumble the clothes.

After finding the belt was broken, I also discovered the idler pulley was broke. Your website made it incredibly easy to identify and purchase the parts. This is my third great experience with your site. The last repair was the whole front bearing assembly and that went very smooth thanks to your site. Keep up the great work and thanks again.

No heat in perm. Press cycle/dryer then quit spinning

Started off not knowing what I was doing at all, never worked on a dryer before.
I knew the drive belt was broken so I had to get to the inside of the machine. I started taking screws off (way more than I needed two) then I finally discovered that I only needed to remove the two screw in front of the dryer that secure the front panel to the top panel.
I took the two screws out and the top lifted right off and the front panel/door assembly came off giving me access to the drum. I was then able to easily remove the drum which gave me easy access to the heater assembly.
I removed the heater assembly and found one of the coils had broken. At the same time I realized that I purchased the wrong heater coil kit but I was able to still use the supplied coil with a little ingenuity. I then reinstalled the heater assembly into the dryer.
The drive belt drove me to drink a few beers later that night. I thought it would be a breeze to install but nooooo! After reinstalling the drum and trying to reach my hands into places not meant for hands to go into, and loosing some blood in the process, I decided it might be smarter to remove the side cover. Well that was a much better idea. I was able easily rout the belt over the drive pulley and tensioner.
All the covers went back on with ease and the dryer works like a charm!
Overall not a hard job. I guess I just made it hard because it was my first time ever working on a dryer.
Now if I can ever figure out where those two extra screws came from......?

CustomerThomas from Long Beach, CA

Dryer becoming increasing noisy and vibrating

First remove top cabinet panel by removing two small screws under door recess; then swing up lid and remove from hinged area at the rear. Once top panel is removed, remove the front panel and door assembly by removing two attach screws securing front panel to dryer cabinet. Swing the front panel down and remove from two base hinge points. Slightly lift the front of the dryer drum and wedge some rolled up newspaper between drum and frame to provide access to get your hands through to the idler pulley and motor area. Remove the belt form the motor & idler pulley; then slide the drum out of the cabinet to gain access to the idler pulley. Remove nut securing idler pulley from bracket and remove and replace with new part. Reverse the process to complete the installation.
