I Removed the top cover by removing the two small screws just inside the dryer door at the top. The I removed the dryer front and door assembly by removing the two small screws inside the dryer front on each side. That's it. All the parts can then be accessed and replaced easily. The entire job took 10 minutes including a good cleanout.
It took more time to figure out how to get the dryer apart than it did to fix it. Unfortunately I ordered the wrong parts the first time but Part Select was very helpful and efficient in helping me get the correct parts. I located the two screws that hold the top onto the machine inside the door frame at the top. Once the top was off, there were two screws that held the front door assembly to the dryer. The old parts (very worn and next to totally gone = none of the slides were remaining) were easy to snap out and the new parts easy to snap in to place. The Spa is happy that the dryer is quiet again and can be run when we have clients waiting. Thanks to you Part Select.
I removed the top and layed it back with wires attached. Took out 2 screws and removed the front. I pulled out the drum and throughly cleaned away all lint and dust from motor, etc. Removed worn parts and reinstalled new parts in same fashion. Reassemble cabinet and check operation. . . . . Great. No new dryer needed!
Boyfriend did the repair but it took very little time, the dryer now runs nice and quiet with no thudding and all my clothes are safe from being eaten!
removed top by removing two screw inside door,found felt was out of place and ruined--found some wear on bearing at rear of drum--decided toreplace these parts plus fround bearing--alsonew belt ,since it was apart---to remove the drumyou have to remove front panel,which requiredremoving two bolts from inside at top--front ofdryer just lays down--then you can pull tub out- I read other customers repair storys ,which made it real easy.
Open door,remove two screws at top,push top up unroll it is straight up,remove two wires for the door switch,remove the two sheet metal screws ,pull up on the complete front asembly then out,hold drum when doing this.then remove trim ring most likely you will need to break it because it's very hard to remove.replace ring and bearing slides
I followed instructions provided by other users of this site. Two screws removed allowed the top to be raised. Two more screws allowed the front to be removed and swung to the side. I removed the felt, and replaced it, after looking which way the bevelled edge faced. The teflon drum slide bearings were simple to replace. The front drum bearing was a little difficult to remove, but I just kept prying with a flathead screwdriver and it eventually began to pop off. I vacuumed and removed a ton of lint from everywhere I could get at, and the dryer now runs quieter with no more clothing getting hung up inside.
Removed the screws (torx head) from the top of the control panel and pulled out of the way. Then remove the top cover gaining access to the inside. Removed two screws near top inside of front panel, 5/16" nut driver. Then removed front wear the front bearing guide is. The old guide was worn thru badly. Removed the bearing guide, snaps out, but it took a little effort. After cleaning installed parts and make sure you secure the felt at the ends. Reassembled in reverse order. The dryer works great now, no clothes are getting eaten and it is much quieter.
Removed the two screws found inside top portion of the door frame. This allows you to remove the front of the dryer but remember to disconect the two wires to the stop switch. After this, top will just lift out, set it aside. Proceeded to place front section on mat on the floor. The parts ordered consisted of drum slide bearing (3) these are just friction pads, the molded front plastic drum bearing and the air dust seal. Proceeded to pull the dust seal, and front drum bearing. Just reversed with the new parts and installation was a breeze.
