I unplugged the machine, then unscrewed two screws that hold the top and front together, and lifted off the front door. When I pulled the drum out through the front, the belt came out broken. It was the original, so this is not a surprise. I ALWAYS take this dryer apart once a year to vacuum it out, clean all the ducts and fan, and check everything. This dryer is fifteen years old, and has survived three teenage daughters with their laundry. This time I noticed that the sliders on the front door were worn, blower wheel was loose, and rear bearing was loose,so I ordered everything. The parts came in three days. By then, you could no longer see the basement floor with piles of laundry and Friday night dates looming. I had everything replaced and working in under an hour, after which there was a conflict over who gets to use it first. Hey, I only fixed it, then I walked away. So, for 140 bucks, I have now replaced virtually every critical part, and with no rust, this thing will last as long as these guys have parts. I'm happy, my daughters are happy, and that means the wife is happy. And we all know what that means...
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!
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
First read very helpful reviews on PartSelect from:Summit Health and Fitness From Flagstaff AZand Michael From Warwick RIThe parts diagram on PartSelect is good as an overview. Having two people makes a big difference detaching and re-attaching the drum.Knowing how to get the lid and front door off each specific model is important. That's where the stories mentioned above were essential. After that, many generic dryer repair stories will work.I recommend changing all wearable parts while you are in there. I wish I had ordered some new felt, but I did rear bearing, slides, and belt even though the belt probably was good to go.PartSelect shipped from Windsor Locks, CT. The parts were nearly exact replacements. Some fasteners were different, so I used the old ones and had the tap the sheet metal on the retainer with the fasteners before installing it.Really glad to have stumbled on this site via Google.
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.
I removed the two screws from inside the door at the top, which were holding down the top. Removed top,then two screws at the top of front in the inside of the unitTilted out the front so the wires would not come disconnected, slip in new bushings, and put it back together. Thanks, Saved me from buying a new dryer
First unplug the dryer from power. Now open the dryer door and remove the two phillips head screws that hold the top down. Then lift the top off and turn the dryer on it's back (this is not necessary but if you have the room it makes the job easier). Now remove the two hex head screws that hold the front on and remove the wires from the door switch. Now you can lift the front of the dryer off, door and all. This now allows you to replace the three (on this model) slide bearings and the felt. I also removed the belt and lifted the drum out and checked both the belt and the rear bearing. You can do it!
Unplug the appliance and open the dryer door, loosen screws located underneath door opening ridge remove top of dryer. Locate screws inside to take front off the appliance making sure the drum does not fall down. Unsnap drum bearing, remove old felt replace both. Replace bearing slides and put back together. Really easy and the dryer works great for arounf $50- 60.00.
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.
Unfastened 4 screws and lifted the top panel; unfastened 2 top screws, loosened bottom 2 screws holding the front panel,lifted and removed front panel with door. Unfastened 10 screws holding rear access panel, removed panel. Relieved tension on drive belt, removed belt; Removed drum through front of cabinet. Rpelaced rear bushing. Replaced 2 front bearings. Reassembled all components
I was actually able to do the repair based on the other repair stories listed on this site. Their instructions were clear and concise which made the job a breeze. The last time I had a repairman come out the bill was $95.00 to disconnect and reconnect a wire. For less than $50.00 I was able to do a much bigger job for a whole lot less. The best part of it all: my wife thinks I'm a genius.
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.
