I did not know anything about fixing a dryer beforehand but the Parts Select video was extremely helpful. It matched exactly what I needed to do, from showing me which screws I needed to remove to get inside the dryer to replacing the part. I simply removed the front drum bearing, replaced all four slides (gray and white), and snapped it all back in. It took me less than 30 minutes and probably saved me $100 in repair costs.

The only tool used was a phillips head screwdriver. I removed two screws to lift the lid and two more screws to free the front panel, slid off the front panel, and had direct access to all 4 slides, replaced, reassembled, and good as new.

It took longer to watch all 3 instruction videos than it took to actually complete the repair. Great instructions for an amateur do-it-yourselfer. Made my wife love me again!

Dryer runs but does not heat

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

My dryer would run but not heat and the timer would not advance. PartSelect helped me determine that the heating element needed to be replaced. I have very little experience with appliance repair. I found this to be challenging but well worth it.

Low heat

  • Customer: Larry from Naples, FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I bought the Heating Element and Housing together so that I would not have to stretch and run the coils and to save time!
1. I removed the two screws that hold the top down by opening the dryer door and removing the two screws at the top of the door opening. Then I pulled the top off.
2. Then I removed the two screws on the top inside of the dryer on the left right and took the front off.
3. Next I spread the dryer open a little and pulled the drum out while pushing the belt off the back of the drum.
4. Then I removed the screws to the sensors and removed them from the housing.
5. Then I removed the four screws holding the heating element housing to the back of the dryer and took it out and put in the new peace.
6. Do everything in reverse when putting the dryer back together.

Dryer squealed when it ran

I watched the video on PartSelect.com on how to change out the Front Drum Bearing and where and how the Drum Bearing Slides were installed and then I got a Phillips Screw Driver and a pair of Needle Nose Pliers. The first thing I did was unplug the dryer. I unscrewed the two screws located at the top corners of the door opening that fastened the top of the dryer and then removed the top and set it aside. While I had the top off I took the opportunity to note the condition of the Drum Belt in case it also needed to be replaced. The drum belt appeared to be in good shape so I removed the two screws that fastened the front of the dryer, pulled the front of the dryer forward letting the drum fall slightly off of the Front Drum Bearing, and then disconnecting the door switch wires making sure I wrote down where each of the three wires attached to the wire harness on the front panel of the dryer went. I pulled the front panel off and the first thing I noticed was that all four of the Drum Bearing Slides were GONE as were the brackets on the Front Drum Bearing that held them. There were a couple piles of grey dust on the front panel which were the remains of a couple of the Drum Bearing Slides. I unscrewed the light bulb and just pulled the Front Drum Bearing off and discarded it. The new Front Drum Bearing snapped easily into place and I installed the Drum Bearing Slides, of which there are TWO types, into their proper brackets. I cleaned out the lint from the exhaust vent on the bottom of the front panel as well as the hardened lint from around the fan on the bottom of the dryer where the exhaust vent on the front panel attached before I plugged the three door switch wires back in their proper locations on the front panel wire harness and, making sure the drum rested on the Front Drum Bearing, reattached the front panel and screwed the fastening screws back into place. Then I reattached the top, which took a few minutes and some colorful metaphors because anyone who has ever done any kind of repair knows that the mechanism you are trying to repair never wants to go back together. After getting the dryer top where it was supposed to go I screwed the fastening screws back into place. Before I plugged the dryer in to test it I took the opportunity to remove and completely clean out the dryer exhaust vent pipe from inside the pipe that comes out of the dryer all the way to where the vent exhausts to the outside. You wouldn't believe how much lint hardens on the insides of the exhaust vent pipe. I reattached everything, plugged in the dryer, and turned it on. The dryer was as quiet as it was when I first bought it.

The repair was performed in the laundry room which was large enough the handle all the parts when disassembled. I followed the video and it was perfect without any errors. The job was simple and even putting on the new belt without having the ability to see what I was doing. You'll understand when you view the video and perform the job. Just follow the instructions including using the newly supplied screw to tap the new holes.
