Age. Age, and a bazillion loads of laundry.

Remove the two bottom screws that hold the front sheet metal on. Pull the bottom of the front out, while it pivots at the top -- it will drop free. Disconnect the two wires at the door closed switch. Put the front panel aside. Remove the four screws that hold the front drum retainer in place. Use a Dremel, or other suitable tool to remove the old rivets from the glides. Remove all of the old guide pieces. Install new, and use rivet tool to pop-rivet new guides in place. Re-assembly is the reverse of dis-assembly. The lint screen is a given. ;)

Pulled out the tumbler and removed belt. Removed the two drum support rollers and shafts by removing a nut on the back side of each shaft. Removed snap ring off each old shaft, installed new rollers and fiber washers onto new shafts installed snap ring and replaced on brackets with the old nut. Removed tension spring off idler pulley bracket and one screw holding on the bracket. Installed new pulley and fiber washers on new bracket and reinstalled bracket and spring.

After 30 yars the dry was really noisey.

First I'd like to say I ordered the parts one day and got them the next. That kind of service is awesome!

Pulled off the front panel (Removed the 2 screws at bottom then lifted up and out from the bottom. Set it to the side. Then removed the 4 screws holding the front of tub housing in place and pulled the housing to the side. Pulled the tub forward a few inches to expose the drum roller wheels located toward the back of the tub. Didn't pull the drum very far forward because I didn't want the drive belt to come off the pulleys. Removed the retaining clip from the first wheel and then removed the 2 rub washers and the wheel. Repeated the same to the other wheel. Pushed the tub back in place. Reached in around the tub and repositioned the belt to the front of the grove in the drum in which the wheels run. Reassembled the front tub housing, making sure the blower flange fit evenly and well into the felt sleeve. Reinstalled the front panel. Smiled when I turned on the dryer and it was quite. I didn't install the front glide kit though I may in the future since they are fairly warn.

Drilled out old rivet's 1/8" drill. Replaced front drum cover and 4 screw'. Replaced front of dryer and 2 screw's. The video showing how to do job was very helpful, watch it.

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.

Excessive noise when operating

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.

Installation of parts solved the difficulty!

I watched all of the video provided for repairing each of the parts and used them several times! They were excellent and beneficial! I used the suggestions provided and found the involved correction to do exactly as planned. The end result was very good and the dryer now works like it is supposed to without any noises. I thank you for all of your help.

CustomerAlexander from Los Angeles CA

The dryer was making a very loud squeeking sound

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.

CustomerKay from Edgemont AR

The dryer was making a loud noise that sounded like it was about to quit, it was!

My husband and a friend decided to take the dryer apart to see what the problem might be and if it could be repaired. I had already decided the dryer is about 14 years old, it is history. They discovered the roller was broken, and other parts such as the belt, a pulley and so on. I went online to www.partselect.com. I was surprised to see diagrams of the inside of my dryer. That helped us order the right parts. I ordered the parts for a total of 68.00 (including shipping) The parts came, the dryer was fixed and runs like new. I saved 400.00, because I did not have to buy a new dryer. I am very proud that we were able to use this site to locate our needs and fix the dryer. The diagrams helped us perform the task without calling a repair person.
Thank you for this opportunity!
