Noisy thumping dryer

Followed the instruction given by previous writers in these post.
Hint The bungee cord hook was used to hold up the lid, worked very well.
If you are by yourself use duct tape to hold the drum in place before removing the front panel. Tape the top rear of the drum to the rear frame. Also do this when reassembling the front panel.
Easy and quick makes the wife happy this time.
PS. Ordered the parts on Sunday and had them on Tuesday.

CustomerJames from Ctr. Barnstead, NH

There was a squealing noise when the dryer was in use.

I removed the 2 screws in the lint filter. Then pried up the top of the dryer. I removed the 2 screws inside the front panel at top.I then unplugged the wires inside attached to the front panel. I pulled up on front panel and removed it. I then lifted out the drum and set aside. I replaced the 2 drum wheels prying off the plastic retainers. I didn't relpace the tension pulley as I didn't have one. I took old belt off drum and replaced it with the new one and replaced drum. I held up the drum with a bungee cord while I rethreaded the belt. I put the front panel back on and replaced the screws. I then plugged the wires back together. I put the top down and then replaced the 2 screws in the lint filter. I relaced the lint filter and tested the dryer. The noise was gone and new belt installed. fairly simple.

Screeching sound from dryer.

PartSelect you have to have the best online customer service in the industry. No, I take it back. It's the best online service I've experienced anywhere. Period. Your online parts lookup showed me all the parts I needed. Nothing more. You have excellent installation videos which also came with the confirmation email.The percentage of repairs for each spare part helped me to accurately diagnose the problem. The dryer problem was in the motor bearings and not the roller wheels as I had originally thought. Smart idea. All the parts fit perfectly and installed exactly as your videos described. But the best thing is I got the complete order delivered in two days. Your entire end-to-end customer care is terrific. My wife is happy with the repaired dryer. And you guys made me look like a hero. Thanks again. Charlie in Napa. CA.

Dryer was squealing like a stuck hog!

The instructional videos were very helpful in diagnosing and correcting the problem. I order the idler pulley and decided to replace the drum support rollers since I had to open it up. It was very simple to do and did not take long. The old pulley was completely shot. It sounded like a baby rattle when rolled by hand. Now the old dryer runs like new. Parts were delivered quickly and I am very happy with the service!

Noisey

Removed screws fastening lint catching housing. Unpluged door open switch and removed nuts on front panel. Before removing front of dryer, I bent a piece of a wire hanger into a hook and tied a string to it and tightly to the top rear panel of the dryer. I then put the hook along the top of the drum to hold it so that it could be removed easily without falling when lifting the front panel off. I then removed the drum which opened the entire internal of the dryer for viewing. Before ordering parts, I removed the belt and ran the motor to realize the motor seemed to be creating the screeching noise. Upon futher review I noticed other parts were worn. I oreded and replaced the idler pulley and drum support rollers. I then removed screws in rear of the dryer to replace the fan from the motor shaft. I realized after a few minutes that the fan attached to the motor shaft was reversed threads. I could not remove the fan assembly from the motor shaft so with a drill,I drilled several holes in the fan and cut it off of the shaft with a hack saw. I now had to purchase a fan. The installation of the fan and motor were very simple. I again used the string and hook to secure the drum while reassembling the new belt through the idler pulley and to the motor. Turned a few nuts and all was complete. It now runs as it did when it was new.
