Broken drum belt

The first time, I inserted the belt the wrong way. The drum turns a little bit then stops. The manufacturer does not give any instructions or drawings on their website on that particular model, only drawing of parts.I called the technical support department and they told me to call different telephone numbers in my area and repair technicians. Still no schematic and instructions.
The solution: I took the broken belt, put around the drum, measured it, the remaining slack, did some trial and error around the motor axle and the pulley.
Placed a 2 X 4 piece of wood to hold the tension of the pulley. With the belt around the drum, carefully inserted the drum downward. placed the belt starting from the left side of the drum to the bottom of the motor axle, around it then to the bottom of the tension pulley, then towards the right side of the drum.
Lift the drum to its proper position, horizontal. Remove the piece of wood. Turn the drum manually so it moves freely. check the belt moving around the axle and the pulley. Install back the panels and screws tightened. Test and observe a few drying runs.

CustomerKenneth from PLainfield NJ

Broken belt

This would be an easy job, if I were to do it again.

I needed to download a manual only to get ACCESS to the machine. Removing the outside lag bolts did NOT provide access.

They had hidden clips that were ENTIRELY invisible from the outside. I believe this was done deliberately, to prevent those who don't know the specifics about this machine from gaining access.

It's an easy job, once you know the idiosyncracies of the construction of the machine. It's a major pain in the ass if you don't, even if you are used to replacing belts in other dryers.

Having done it once, the next time I could do it in under 20% of the time it took me the first time.

Loud squeaky sound

remove the housing under the dryer door. take out the lint trap. I took the whole bottom off the dryer to easily get to the tensioner pully. I then loosened the tub and slid off the old belt and replaced it.

The drum would not turn is certain positions.

Took off the two lower front screws, Then the screws to take off the door and frame. Then the lint trap. Finally took out the drum. BOY WAS MY DRYER DIRTY WITH LINT! Vacumned it all out and washed the filter and filter housing with soap. Found out that I needed tension wheel also. Ordered that. Replaced the wheel, that was the hardest part. Need to take off this part like a "spring washer" and put it back on with the new wheel in place. Then placed the belt on the drum, belt on the tension, screwed the drum holder frame on, screwed the door frame on, screwed the lower panel on and it works great. By the way I am a female and if I can do it anyone can.

I took the bottom on the dryer off, then took the assembly that held in the drum. Then I took the drum out. replaced the bad parts, and put everything back together.
I turned on the dryer, and presto.. no more grinding noise.

Broken belt

Lifted the top of the dryer removed two screws and pulled the front of the Dryer forward. Slipped the new belt over the drum and over the motor pulley.
Pushed the front back in place and snapped the top of the dryer down and the job was complete.
I thought the part would take three days to get here.
It was delivered the day after I ordered it.

Gas dryer, would only work when it felt like it.

Make a long story short, dryer was on fire from lint in the bottom of it. burned up some wires & other parts. it was easy to repair the wire & replace the parts every thing worked out fine. REMEMBER TO CLEAN OUT THE LINT IN THE BOTTOM OF THR DRYER not only the lint filter or this could happen to you.

CustomerAnthony from Rochester NY

Dryer would vibrate and make a loud bad bearing sound.

I began by disassembling the dryer to diagnose the problem. I discovered the belt had been riding on a section of a broken idler pulley as well as wearing a groove into the idler pulley bracket. I removed the broken parts and went to the Internet for replacement parts. Three days later the parts arrived and I began reassembly. I found it a little difficult to replace the drum with the belt in position but found it much easier to recruit some assistance during this phase. Another factor with the difficulty was that I hadn't paid real close attention to the webbing direction of the belt around the pulley and there were no diagrams depicting the proper direction of the new belt. I did figure it out relatively quickly but would advise paying very close attention to parts positioning during disassembly.

Loud squealing noise when drum was rotating.

The repair went just like the video that PartSelect has. I was much easier than I thought it would be. Once I got the Dryer apart I cleaned it and then installed the new parts with no issues. However I did find that the Idler arm and pulley need changing so I have ordered them. I have reassembled the Dryer and it went back together as easy as it came apart. I recommend watching the video first if you have never done this. Good Luck

Loud squeaking until idler warmed up

Not my first dryer repair. This is an easy fix, even for a "novice." Just follow the directions that can be found at several websites, and pay attention. Easy to do, and will save you $$$. This is also a good time to clean excess lint out of the dryer! You should also inspect the felt that the drum rotates on. (And sweep underneath the appliance. Who wants to do that on a regular basis!!??)

CustomerScott from Hawthorne FL

Dryer had no heat

I pulled the heating element loose and layed it on the floor so I could see if the elements were heating. This required totally disassembling the dryer from the front including removing the drum. Then I bypassed the door switch so the dryer would run disassembled. Then plugged in the dryer and turned it on. Heating coils did not glow... Hmmmm. Put a meter across the two thermal switches mounted on the element assembly to find one of them was open. Ordered switch from PARTSELECT; ordered a belt too while I had it apart. Parts came very fast and reassembled with new parts. WORKS LIKE A CHAMP!!! Thanks Partselect!
