CustomerDustin from Wonder Lake, IL

Dryer fell off leveling piece and locked the drum.

I removed the gate in the back and found the belt had snapped. I continued to dismanlte the entire dryer to see what else was damaged. I pulled the drum out and ran the unit to make sure the motor didn't burn out and that the heater coil worked, which both did (I had no idea, this unit came with the house I purchased. They told me is was broken.) So after finding the belt broken I saw that the top felt guide was rubbed down so far that the plastic guides where in paper thin, craked pieces.

I used the manuel that came with the felt guide to glue the new one on. If you do not replace the lower felt guide as well, make sure you mash the top felt down so that it's level with the lower felt. after I got my unit assembled the top guide pulled away because I didn't do this.
Installing the belt is timely, but easy. remove the drum then lay the belt around the visible line that the old one creates. Use this site's diagram to affix it to the pull and motor and that's that. Rotate the drum with your hand to even the belt out all around the drum to prevent it wobbling. I did this installation by myself, but it would have been much much easier if I had a set of hands on the other side of the unit.
Parts all fit together by either sheet screws or clips. Just keep track of which screw goes where. some are different sizes.

CustomerDavid from Plymouth, ME

Worn front drum slides

The disassembly was very easy and it appeared that this would be a very quick repair. But the removal of the old felt was difficult and once it was removed it took a lot of effort to remove the bits still stuck on. The tool of choice to remove the stuck on felt was a small torch. After that use a coarse sand paper to remove the remnants. Glue on the new felt and reinstall the front panel.

3. Cleaned lint out of inside of dryer.

Brown stains on clothes.

Followed your website repair guides and the great belt replacement video.

Other parts used were; front lower basket seal, dryer seal, and dryer drum belt.

Had no problems except for keeping the drum belt idler pulley tension spring in place. Used the rear access panel to solve this issue.
