Installing the new switch was a snap. With the dryer unplugged, open the top using a putty knife to release the 2 clips - one on each side. Lift the top and support it to stay open. Next, note the wire color and location for each of the 3 wires. Remove each wire from its prong on the bad switch by gripping the connector with pliers and pulling off. Next remove the bad switch by squeezing the tabs on the sides of the switch to release it. The switch removes to the front of the dryer. Install the new switch in the same method and reconnect the wires as before making sure the colors go back on the same prongs. I had to replace one of the connectors with a larger one (that came with the switch) since one of the prongs on the new switch was larger than the orginal (bad) switch. To do this, I cut the old connector off, stripped the end of the wire, and crimpted on the new connector. I had to be careful not to waste too much wire since there was very little slack to work with.

loud squeaking

I unplugged the dryer, pushed the clips loose and tipped the lid up and tied it open to a cabinet above. Disconnected the electrical connections to the front panel and removed front panel. Then I disconnected the electrical connections to the drum support. Removed four sheet metal screws holding the support and lifted out the support. Removed the drum glides at the bottom, installed the new drum glides with felt pads. I replaced the drum rollers just so I didn't have to do it later. Put everything back in reverse order and running quiet! Well worth the $42.57 spent for parts and postage.

Heat would not work in the dryer

My wife told me the dryer was not drying. It tumbled but had no heat. I went online and discovered that the possible problems were a bad heating element, or a bad thermal switch. I borrowed a multimeter at work and determined that the heating element had continuity but the thermal switch did not. That made me happy since the thermal switch is a cheap part. Unfortunately you have to take the whole dryer apart to get to it but I took pictures of any wire connections and it was not that bad. While doing it I decided to also replace the belt since it was fraying in some places. I ordered the parts from Parts select on a wednesday and had them friday morning. I used the attached video's to correctly connect the belt and replace the switch and then cleaned out all the lint from the inside cabinet and hoses and now it works perfectly. Once I took the whole thing apart I also found a long lost 10 dollar bill behind the panels. This repair was well worth the effort and cost only 26 dollars, if I deduct the 10 I found net cost was 16 dollars. Could not be happier, Very happy that a place like Parts Select exists, without it I would have been replacing a perfectly good dryer.

I first unplugged the dreyer from the wall, I then used the putty knife to push clips in on top of the dreyer and opened the top. I used a nut driver to remove the front panel and unplugged the light and door switch wires. I then reached under the drum and removed the belt, and then lifted the drum out of the cabinet. I used snap ring pliers to remove the rollers and replaced.them with the new ones. After installing the new rollers I placed the new belt around the the.drum and lifted the drum by the belt placing it back into the cabinet. With the drum back in place I reattached the front panel and turned the drum to make sure it was not hanging up on the felt rings. With the drum moving freely and the belt hanging down I layed back in front of the dreyer and put the belt on the motor and reached up to.the tension pulley and placed the belt under the pulley. Once the belt had tension on it I again manually rotated the drum to make sure it wasn't binding anywhere. All was good so I replugged the light and door wires, shut the lid and plugged the dreyer back into the wall socket, turned it on and it worked great. From start to finish it took about.40 minutes and half that time was spent cleaning out the cabinet which had quite a bit of lint. I have used the.dreyer several times since the repair, and this completely took care of the problem. I highly recommend ordering the rollers along with the belt as mine were well worn and it saved me from having to take it apart twice. All in all a very eazy do it yourself project.

I popped the top open by depressing the spring clips with a putty knife. I then used a socket to remove the two bolts holding the front panel on either side near the top. Once the front panel was removed, I removed the frame that supports the front end of the tumbler drum. I then removed the belt tension by sliding it off the motor tensioner and removed the drum. Once the drum was out I had easy access to the high limit thermal fuse that I had to replace. After the fuse was replaced I put it back together the same way I took it apart.

I was amazed just how easy it was. It would have been much quicker if I had a nut driver instead of a wrench. The video was great. Thank you!
