This maintenance kit or dry repair kit is used for dryers. The kit includes the drum belt, drum support rollers, one idler pulley, four tri-rings, and one clip. If your dryer is making loud, squeaking, and squealing noises while the drum is turning, or the drum has stopped turning, using this maintenance kit is the solution. The tools needed for this installation project are: putty knife, Phillips screwdriver, 5/16 nut driver, and a small flat blade screw driver. This kit can be used for gas and electric dryers. Remember to unplug the dryer from the power source before beginning this project.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
This multi rib belt is an important part in your dryer, it is what helps rotate the drum. The belt attaches to the drum, idler pulley, and motor pulley. As the armature of the motor rotates, the belt begins to move and turns the drum. If you notice the drum of your dryer is not spinning during the dry cycle, but you hear the motor running, your belt may have snapped and it will need to be replaced. This belt features four ribs and three grooves, however it replaces a wide variety of belts including wider styles that had five ribs and four grooves. When installing this part make sure the grooves are facing down, against the drum. This replacement part is 92 1/4 inches in length, and 1/4 inch wide. Before you begin any repair work, make sure your dryer has been unplugged.
The drum support roller kit allows the dryer to tumble properly by supporting the drum cylinder. The kit includes two drum rollers, four tri-rings and one palnut (or retaining washer). The kit does not include a belt or idler pulley and rollers are not sold individually. The drum support roller kit may need to be replaced if the dryer is noisy or will not tumble. The tools needed to complete this repair are a putty knife, Phillips screw driver, and a 5/16 nut driver. It is recommended to look at the rear felt before reassembling the dryer to ensure there are no gaps or damage. This is an OEM part sourced directly from the manufacturer.
This part provides the tension required for a multi-ribbed belt. It also serves to help the belt to rotate the drum and attaches to the idler pulley wheel. If your dryer will not start or tumble, takes too long to dry, or is noisy during operation, you may need to replace the idler pulley assembly. Make sure to disconnect power before installing this part, and work gloves are recommended to protect your hands. While the dryer is disassembled for this repair, consider replacing the drive belt as well. You will need a putty knife, a Phillips screwdriver and a 5/16 nut driver for this repair.
If you notice that your dryer is noisy or will not tumble, you may need to replace the tri ring. This part is triangular, and is less than an inch in size. Tri rings can be found both on the idler pulley shaft, or on the rear drum roller shaft. In either case, you will need to remove the front panel of the dryer and the drum to access the part for repair. Once you have accessed the damaged tri ring, you will simply need to slip it off and replace it with the new one. This part is sold individually. Be sure to disconnect the power source from the dryer before you begin this repair.

Opened the cabinet and removed the drum. Cleaned out the dryer fuzz. found that the roller stabilizer wasn't in place; apparently due to a previous repair. Replace both rollers and the roller stabilizer and prepared to replace the drum. But because I live alone, I didn't have anyone to hold the drum while I connected the belt to the motor. But, I did have three unused balloons which I partially inflated and set the drum on them in the bottom of the cabinet while I hooked up the belt to the motor. Put everything back together and it is now drying my clothes again. :)
We had to take the dryer apart first to figure out what the problem was. Put it back together after determining what was the problem, order parts ,receive parts in the mail, tear dryer back apart install new parts, close dryer up, test run, Get Thank-you kiss from wife!!!
Followed the video your company has.
Followed the directions, top held in place by plastic clips, used flat bladed screw driver to gently pry upwards until they released. Cleaned inside of dryer. Check for lint, just about none. Two screws retain the front panel. Disconnect the door switch. Installed new rollers, then installed the rear drum seal which can be messy and the hardest part of the whole job. I applied the adhesive to the lip and slipped the seal onto the lip, the adhesive was setting by the time I was done, but it's glued 360 degrees around the periphery. Put belt on drum and slipped drum onto rollers depressed tension and slipped belt onto motor pulley. Slightly pulled drum up while slipping front panel onto lower catches. Reinstalled top clips and retaining screws. Tested. Closed lid. Done. Much quieter and works fine
pulled dryer away from wall took screws out of lint screen lift top removed 2 screws one on each side of front at top and removed front panel. pulled belt off drum removed drum rollers tension pulley and while i was at it pulled back cover off of heating element and blower blew everything out with air hose did a total cleaning installed everything in reverse. i was amazed how fast the parts came the dryer was only down 2 days and it runs like new even if it is 20 years old i highly recommend parts slect and i will use them in the future
I opened the top and front of the dryer. 1st I pulled out the drum and cleaned up the lint and mess from the busted support roller. Next it was a matter of looking at the enclosed drawing and instructions. I could not believe it was that easy.
I changed the belt, tension pully and rollers. Runs like new now. I also took the opportunity to clean it out real good while I had it apart.
Took the two screws holding the lint trap to top. Used a putty knife to loose the clips holding the top of the dryer up so it could be hindged up for access. Used a nut driver to remove the four screws hold the front door on. Removed the lower dust panel, just clips holding in on. Pull the dryer drum out along with the broken belt and old belt tensioner. Took shop vac and cleaned lint and removed about $2.00 of loose change from the base. Installed the new drum supper wheels. Held belt around drum to put back in. Looped the belt through tensioner and around motor drive pulley as shown in instructions. Put front door on only to find the felt around the door had slipped making the drum hard to turn. Pulled the door back off and laid the dryer on it's back before putting the door back on , so you can run your hand around the door to make sure the felt go inside the drum. Put the four screws back in the door panel before uprighting the dryer. Sucess the drum turned freely. Put other remaining panel and srews in lint trap . Hook the dryer back up to vent, power and gas, and turned on the dryer. Runs like new!
Followed the included instructions in the Maintenance kit. Very easy to understand & follow. Only advice is to have an extra set of hands to assist in re-installing drum w/ the new belt. Entire disassembly & reassembly could be done w/ basic hand tools but went alot quicker using a cordless drill w/ a set of nut/screw driver bits.
I use the manentance kit that was not the problem. I end buying the drive motor and that was it. I was happy with the service I got from part select, overnight mail what more could I ask for? I am also glad I replace everthing with mainentance kit. Thank you for your help john degnan

Thanks to the sep by step instructions I got from part select this repair was very simple. The disassembling was relatively easy, my new maintainance kit came the nest day, the machine was already apart and the parts went in without a hitch. THANKYOU
I watched the video on the websit and it told me and showed me just what to do. Exccelent video, Ordered the repair kit, got it in two days. Job took me about 10 min.
got my daughter's boyfriend over.. he is like McEiver.. can fix anything with a bobbypin.... he told me what to order, you delivered it in 2 days.. and the dryer was fixed the next day. All it cost me was a roast beef dinner Much better than that repairman who would have charged a minimum of $100 plus parts... at probably triple your cost...
