Idler pulley bearing froze

First of all I would not have done this if it wasn't for
your website. Using the schematics to figure out
the right parts was easy. It was also helpful in the
actual repair process. I have added your website
to my favorites in my browser. The parts arrived in 3 days and I live in Reno. Great Website.

M.B.

CustomerTheodore from Madison CT

Dryer squealed when first starting for about 3 minutes

Disconnect power. First, remove the lower front panel, then the upper front panel (disconnect door switch wiring). Remove two screws holding the top panel to the left and right side panels. Remove wiring connections to light and humidity sensor. Remove four screws to front drum support assembly, lift up to disengage tangs, and remove assembly. Reach in and find the idler assembly for the drum drive belt, and unwrap the belt to loosen it, also removing the belt from the motor pulley.. Slide the drum out the front of the dryer along with the drive belt. Remove the snap ring (using snap ring pliers) and washer holding the idler pulley on to the idler assembly. Remove the idler pulley. Polish the shaft with fine steel wool to get rid of dirt. Clean thoroughly, leaving no steel wool residue. Install replacement pulley, washer, and snap ring. Reinstall drum, taking care to feed belt back into place as the drum is reinstalled. Reach in and wrap the belt around the motor pulley and the idler pulley. Reinstall the front drum support by lifting the drum slightly to allow the support to engage with the drum, and then drop it down to re-engage the tabs into the left and right side panels while reseating it into the blower intake. Install the four screws to hold it in place, and reinstall the wiring for the light and the humidity sensor. Attach the top panel to the left and right side panels with one screw for each side. Reinstall the upper front panel, including reattaching the wiring to the door switch, with two screws. Finally, reinstall the lower front panel. Reconnect to the power source, and you should be good to go.

Screeching dryer followed by later clunking when roller went

I pretty much followed a lot of the earlier postings on partselect.com that provided encouragement to pursue replacing this part on my 17 year old dryer (sorry, money is tight these days and I prefer repair to $800 replacement).

I'd like to add that I borrowed a pair of snap-ring pliers from work which made removal and later securing of roller onto shaft much easier and probably avoided a lot of knuckle bruising and cursing.

I erred though in a couple of places during the replacement. Disassembly took about 20 minutes. However, when I re-assembled I had mistakenly already put the roller onto the shaft before trying to put the drum back in. That isn't possible so I had to remove (an initial groan but only a few extra minutes in the end) the roller from the shaft, then reposition the drum and then the roller back on the shaft.

I also decided to replace the belt while I was in there and I should have taken a picture or made a drawing of the belt route before I took it off since I was later left pondering how the heck to snake the belt onto the shaft and also the tensioner. A quick trip to the internet though showed me a similar route and reminded me how to route it.

I'd also like to add to be cognizant of the wires on the door and front panel when disassembling.

Anyone with any sense of mechanical ability and a little common sense ought to be able to do this repiar.

Thanks Part Select!

CustomerLarry from Lima OH

Belt was worn - ready to break, decided to replace the parts that commonly go bad.

I removed the bottom panel, then the larger front panel that includes the door. After that, removed the top 2 screws so that the top would swing up (but not lift off). After that, I removed the front "bulkhead", and the drum. Then it was just a short matter of sweeping everything out, and replacing the parts one by one. Most came off with a socket, or snap ring pliers. Pretty obvious at this point...

Be sure to label any wires - I removed 5 wires all total, and wrote down the colors and where they went.

It's great to have help when working with the drum. BTW, you CAN replace the belt without taking out the drum, but you better have strong fingers to move the belt tensioner and slip the belt on it - all with one hand. I did it, but that was the least "fun" part....

Worn drum roller - squealing

Removed front panels and swiveled lid upwards. Loosened tensioner, removing belt and then carefully extracting the drum. Replaced 2 drum glides on underside of front panel. Next 2 rollers, which appear to unscrew, but do not do so. You must remove the retaining ring (surprise! ...and 2 screw drivers later). This was the longest and most frustrating part of the whole ordeal. Then just reverse the process for reassembly. This was my first electric dryer repair and it really wasn't too bad. Online docs I found were somewhat helpful, but really luck and perseverance. I did save probably $300 in replacement costs, which is quite satisfying. .

Noisy, squeeks, bearings bad

Identified Problem by using silicone spray on drum bearing wheels, when noise stopped I knew bearings were bad. Removed drum per PartsSelect diagram of my dryer then removed wheels, and bearing shaft.
Will need a snap ring pliers with small holes to remove snap rings. I ordered new shafts, washers,snap rings,drum wheels, and belt. Installing belt use two hands and make sure tension bar is correct review belt locations before repair. Also cleaned and vacumned inside of Dryer. Remember to unplug, I did not and when door was removed I caused a short that blew fuse, lucky that I did not damage dryer in process. Working well now with no nose.

Drum would not turn with moderate to heavy load.

Removed the front dryer panels (lower & upper), front drum support and drum. This gave me easy access to the idler pulley and tension spring. I also took the opportunity to vacuum all of the lent that had collected over the years. After installing the new parts and aligning the belt, I reassembled the panels, plug it in and it worked like a champ! Locating the parts on your website was fast and easy. I appreciate it and thank you.

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.

CustomerRichard from Houston TX

Drum rollers were wore out and squeeling

I first removed the screws on the bottom section of the dryer. Then I removed the face/door remembering how the two wires on the dryer were hooked up. After that there are two screws that allow the top to flip up on some megshift hinges. this reveals the drum and the guts of the machine. Reaching under the drum I disconnected the belt by pulling the tension wheel down to release the pressure on the belt. Once that is done you can just pull out the drum. The rollers are on the back wall. You have to remove the lock washers on each wheel (provided you change both((I recommend)). Then the rollers just pull off. Remove the the two screws (1/4 in) . It's just a reversal from there. Always clean up all the lent/debris with a vacuum while your there. It's just a good thing to do. Thats it. good luck

I unhooked the belt from the tensioner and removed the belt and drum, I removed the snap rings and old rollers to give me access to the mounting bolts for the roller axels, and removed them. The drum had a flat spot from the worn out rollers that a few taps with a rubber mallet fixed. then usins the new parts reassembled the rollers, Installed the drum with a new drive belt. the bolted down the top the top, At this time I rolled the drum to make sure the belt and tensioner were ok. Then front support and ducting , the door ( remember to reattach the door safety switch wire ) and lower panel were bolted back into place. The dryer runs and sounds like new.
