Noisey

Pulled bottom access panel of, pulled front door section off, pulled lint filter assembly out, pulled drum out, disconnected idler arm, installed new idler arm and wheel, new belt around drum, drum back in, front door assembly back on, then routed belt over idler arm wheel, lint assembly back on, bottom access panel back on. very easy job, the hardest part was pushing the new idler wheel over the new pulley lever, but with a few firm taps with a hammer it was on. *Tips...save the idler wheel washers and retaining clip from bad wheel and be sure to draw yourself a diagram of what color wires hook up where, in case you forget.

Screeeeaching

pulled dryer out far enough to lean it back against an object for supprt. removed small bottom front cover then door front after disconecting light and switch wires(make note of which goes where), remove top bolts and flip over carefully allowing to hang without disconnecting wire harness, remove belt and drum. at this point it was posible to get to the belt tentioner pully w/o removing the motor but was easier to replace after i discovered there were only two bolts holding the motor in place. at this point i needed two wrenches to remove the pully lever from the motor frame and replace. put everything back together in reverse and no more screaching. : total parts needed were $27.00 as i thankfully decided to replace pully and lever asumming that six months of screaching may have caused wear to the lever and was right. i replaced the belt while i was in there bringing the total to $42 and change. the belt was not needed so i now have a spare which may come in handy someday. thanks to partselect.com i saved BIG $ in repairs or replacement and now have turned the buzzer on to know when the laundry is done.

Loud squeeking during use of dryer

when i first heard the noise i thought it was the belt. after changing that i still heard the noise but louder.
so i took off the bottom face plate took off the door and the bracket holding the tumbler then took out the tumbler to see what was wrong.
being a 6' 4" 250lbs it was hard for me to see what was behind the motor. i finally saw that the idler wheel had come half way off of the lever.
I changed the pulley lever, pulley wheel and all the washers. it was fairly simple. and when done the noise was gone. it only costed me about $15 which made me happy cheap fix.

CustomerCarlos from Azusa CA

Dryer was noisy. Sounded like loud squeaking noise.

Disconnect the dryer from the electrical source. Using a nut driver, first remove the 2 screws of the lower panel and release the panel. Next remove 4 screws of the door panel and then remove the electrical connections to the door (6 wires). Remember to mark the wires prior to removing so you will remember were it plugs back in on reassembly. Remove the door panel. Then remove the 2 screws holding the top of the dryer and tilt the top open about 90 degrees to access the tumbler. Remove the belt by sliding off the tumbler. Remove the tumbler. You will then access the pulley. Using a pair of pliers, remove the retaining ring by pulling upwards. Then remove the washer and the pulley. Replace the parts with the new pulley, washer and retaining ring. This time would be a good time to replace the belt too. Thread the belt through the pulley and over the tumbler. Place the top back and screw in place. Reassemble the door wiring and reattach the door with the 4 screws. Reassemble the lower panel and plug the dryer back into the outlet and test. There should be no more noise if the noise is coming from the pulley and loose belt.

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.

Noisey dryer

Well, my husband actually did the repair . He took the cover off the dryer, then he removed the drum, removed the worn wheels, replaced with the new. Then he vaccumed out all the lint, put the dryer back together and now its working good as new. And I thought we needed to purchase a new dryer!

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!!??)

Dryer wouldn't rotate the drum.

Removed the screws holding the bottom to the sides (but after taking it all apart, I think I could have done the repair by just taking the front off :-(.
Removed the screws holding the front to the sides. Noted the wiring (three wires go to the front door switch). Removed the wires from the switch (they are quick connects, so no tools necessary). Removed the front. Pull the drum out.
Disconnected the spring from the idler pulley lever. Removed the bolt and nut holding the idler pulley lever assembly to the bottom. (The old pulley had basically frozen in place which caused the belt to break). Put the new washers, wheel assembly and retaining ring on the new idler pulley lever. Bolted it back in place. Connected the spring. Put the new belt around the drum and slid the drum into place. Put the belt around the motor pulley and past the idler wheel (make sure it is on the correct side so this takes up the tension). Put the bottom screws back in. Connected the wires back up to the front. Put the front in place. (Make sure that the drum is properly seated in back so the front goes on and the drum will turn). Put the front screws back on.
