Sqeeky / sqealing dryer

Took off face of dryer (two lower screws below door in front) and then removed the drum which gave me access to the idler arm and idler pully. Vaccumed the interior to remove dust and lint. Replaced idler arm and idler pulley assembly. Replace old belt as drum was reinstalled. Opened rear access panel to complete final routing of the new belt over idler pulley and drive motor. Turned the machine on to check repairs and function. Closed rear access door. Pushed dryer back into place and re-leveled machine.

Loudly squealing dryer

Piece of cake. Use the available manual to ascertain dismantling procedure. Only thing that might be tough for average DIY'er is the internal snap rings. Snap ring pliers are mandatory for quick easy repair.
Total time was probably about 15 minutes and this was the first time I had taken it apart. Quiet as a mouse now!
Very helpful site.

The idler pulley broke off the idler shaft

I removed the 2 screws that hold the door and removed the door. I then removed all the screws that hold the front panel and removed the front panel. Then I was able to lift (on hinges) the top panel. I then removed the screws that hold the front drum housing, then removed the drum and belt. At that point you have plenty of room to access the idler pulley. I removed the Idler pulley spring. Then I removed the the screw holding the Idler arm and shaft. Reinstalled in reverse order.

Dryer made loud screeching noise.

After reading all the other repair stories on Partselect, by the way thank you all, I removed the door, then removed the two security hooks that hold the top secure. Then I removed the front panel. I then marked all the screws on the outer door and shroud so I could easily put it back together. I left the all the wires connected and set the shroud and outer door to the side and removed the drum belt and drum. Removed the spring off the idler arm, then using nutdriver, removed the screw that secures the idler arm to the motor. Assembled the new idler arm parts and reversed the process to put it all back together. If I would have replaced the idler arm assembly the same time I replaced the drum support rollers, I wouldn't have had to do this twice! But now I am an expert repair tech on this particular model.

Squeaking / squealing while running dryer

Disassembly of this model dryer is from the front panel. First remove the door (4 screws). Next, pull the front panel off (two clips top, two latches bottom - no tools needed). Romove two screws holding top latches from either side. Raise the top, then remove four screws and two 'bolts' for front panel. After you take the front panel off, then remove two screws holding front tumbler support. NOTE: Pay attention to belt routing prior to removal of belt and tumbler. Remove belt and tumbler. Access to the idler arm is now easy. Remove one screw holding idler arm to motor and replace parts. Assembly is reverse. Hint: Hang the belt over the tumbler and reach under to route belt on assembly.
