CustomerKevin A Frech from Sidney IA

Bearing and heating element broke

Had to first remove the top of the dryer this was done by removing the clamps on the back. Next I removed the front of the dryer by removing the two nuts the frong in the inside, these are somewhat hard to reach. Next the drum was removed. then the heating element shield. Replaced, the heating element then secured it into place. replaced the drum bearing assembly, and put back together.

CustomerPeter from Harrngton DE

Auto dry would not cut off and took long time to dry.

1. I disconnected power cord
2. I used putty knife to loosen top by pressing into
the front spring clips holding it down and lifted the
front of the lid up against the back hinges and leaned
it back against a wall at the back of the machine.
3. Then I unscrewed the two screws at the top of the
inside of the front panel edges and unclipped the
wires from the door switch and then crimped the
metal clips holding the front panel to the main
body sides and then leaned the top of the front panel
toward the front and lifted it out and put it aside.
4. I then went to the back of the machine and undid the
two screws holding the motor area access panel and
took it off and put it aside. I then released the drum
belt tensioner and moved the belt away from the motor
pulley.
5. Then I removed the drum by lifting up on it so that the
ball axle could be pulled outward and then proceeded to
take the belt off and work the drum out of the front
panel opening and put it aside.
6. Once the drum was removed one could see the heating coil
assembly attached to the inside back of the dryer. One
needs to take off the two wires attached to the coil
spade connectors that are located at the ceramic
insulator. I decided to take out the whole assembly by
undoing the four screws at the outside back of the dryer.
7. Once the assembly is out of the dryer, then it becomes
necessary to remove the spade terminals from the
ceramic insulator, One must unbend the metal flanges
that have been bent at the base of the spade coneetors
at the surface of the insulator and then pull out the
spade connectors. Once this is done, then one can
unconnect the coil from the ceramic insulators holding it
to the assembly. Once the coil is disconnected one can
put in the new coil into the ceramic insulators, insert
the spade connedtors into the insulator, bend the
flanges to retain it and then reverse the disassembly
sequence for the assembly to complete the job.
Outcome,(I saved the old coil in case I need it in the
future.)

CustomerJeff from Oklahoma City OK

Dryer was working, but not drying the clothes.

First, I liked for a reset switch, because I guess some dryers have one. It seems mine doesn't. So that didn't work.

Next I cleaned out the lent build up everywhere. I would suggest doing this if you have a problem or not. It ended up being very little work for great return.

Heating Element had actually broke in half, so I ended up needing to replace it. Really unhooking the little electric prongs was the worst part. The have little tabs that bend down to hold them in place, and they don't really bend back up. So you have to break them out. The only thing with the coil is to make sure it doesn't touch the pan.

I put a new built on only because I had everything open, and had know idea how old it was. It was not hard really. You just need to pay attention to how the old one wraps through everything before taking it off. If it was shredded, and you didn't get to see it first, well then good luck.

Scratching noise, wouldn't heat

First make sure dryer is unplugged.Next beware of sharp edges, this dryer has plenty. Remove 2 screws from kick panel,remove kick panel. Lay the kick panel aside, it makes a good "bowl" to hold screws.Remove 2 screws from top, located on back,remove top.Unplug the 2 sets of wiring connecting the front panel, the zip tie has to be unzipped, and if stripped should be replaced when reassembling. Remove 2 screws inside cabinet that hold front panel, near top. Remove 2 screws that hold front panel, in front and at bottom of front panel. Front panel is held in place by spring loaded clips, remove by pulling outward,a putty knife may be slid in to persuade it to pop off, be careful of scratching paint. There is a small panel on the back of the dryer held by 2 screws, remove to access the pulley that maintains tension on belt and release belt. Pay attention to the belt route through the tensioner to insure eaiser assembly later. Remove nylon drum retainer in front of cabinet at top, held in place by 1 screw. The drum may be lifted out and placed aside to access the heating unit(Don't place it on a hill, HaHa). The entire heating unit may be replaced, I opted to replace just the element, as it is much cheaper.
Use a flat screw driver to slip old female plugs off male element plugs, Use needle nose pliers to flatten tabs that hold male plugs of element in the ceramic housing. Remove old element, being careful not to damage any of the insulators. If the new element is not stretched out to about 46 inches "relaxed", carefully stretch it. Place one insulator slightly off-center on the element and place it into element housing. Plug in element into ceramic plug housing and bend the tabs to retain it. carefully begin putting in insulators, one at a time and reattaching element. Do not bend the element or cause any of the coils to touch each other. When all insulators are in place, plug in element and assemble dryer in reverse order. Mke sure belt is oriented with grooved side facing drum, and reach through the rear access panel to run belt through tensioner, make sure spring is attached with s-hook ends and belt is properly threaded. Reaasmble in reverse order, being careful to make sure drum bearing is seated properly, and drum "ring" of front panel is centered in drum. After dryer is assembled try it out on cool and work your way up to hot, and let it run a few minutes to get rid the new smell. Hope this will help.

Dryer wouldn't heat

1. Lift the dryer top off to get to the two screws holding the front of dryer. 2. On the back bottom left of the dryer, remove the vent so you can get to the tension pully to loosen the belt around the drum. 3. Remove drum. 4. Disconnet element coil from wires. 5. Carefully remove element coil from ceramic holders. 6. Get new element coil and attach to wires while carefully keeping coil loose and untangled. 7. Again, carefully restring coil into ceramic holders without springing the coil making it misshapen. Once all of the coil is in the holders, retrace your steps. 8. While you have the appliance open, it's a good time to vacuum out all lint to prevent a fire from occuring. 9. REMEMBER TO ALWAYS UNPLUG THE APPLIANCE BEFORE WORKING ON IT!

CustomerJASON from SOUTH BEND IN

No heat when running.

First of all I would like you all to know that I cheated just a bit. I had SEARS come out and tell me for sure what the problem was, as they took my dryer apart a payed close attention to everything they did. After I was told that it would cost me over $200 (on top of the $109 I just payed for them to tell me what was wrong) to fix the heating element. I replied with a "NO THANKS!", I also told them not to worry putting it back together. It seemed like he was very happy to hear that and thought I was going to buy a new dryer, he even gave me a coupon for a whole 10% off if I spend over $400. After spending 10 minutes or so on line I found the part I needed @ Partselect.com (plug-plug) for like $20. Once I received the part it took all of 15 minutes to take of the old and put on the new. First: Make sure power is off by unplugging or turn off breaker (can't finish a project if a project finishes you)! Second: Find the two power lines sticking out at about four o'clock and disconnect. Third: Unscrew porcelain separator and remove the two coil ends before removing the coil it's self from the arrow like holders. Forth: reverse last three steps with care (coil feels like it could break easily). Fifth: Place drum back in it's setting while making sure that the drive belt that turns drum is placed around motor pulley. Sixth: Button it up the way you pulled it a part. and your done, good luck!

Did not dry

unscrewed the front panel,dissconect wiring and unscrew drum , just the 3 center ones do not unscrew the outer screws inside the dryer ,take belt off and pull drum out. unplug old element ,replace heating element. the most difficult part is to replace drum and screws,for best results screw one, turn drum and make the screw in six o clock position with each one so the weight of the drum does not fight you
