If I put the switch "in-between" heat settings it would sometmes work. Ordered the replacement, when it came I turned off power to the dryer. I removed 3 screws from the back to open up the top panel. All the knobs on the panel where removed and the panel was pulled open to expose the switch. The wires to the switch were removed after drawing a simple diagram to match them back with the new switch. A clockwise twist removed the old one and reversing the procedure put the new one in. Hooked up wires, closed the up the panel, reattached with the 3 screws, put on the knobs and turned back on the power. Everything worked!

Idler Pulley Replacement

  • Customer: Tom from Aquone, NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I had a squeaky dryer. Replaced belt to no avail. Then ordered new glides and idler pulley wheel. The glides are a snap. However, the idler pulley took a little more effort. I'm a big guy and it's hard to repair on the floor. I placed the dryer on it's face, removed the plate off the back rear and reached in to replace the pulley. I advise folks to remove the three screws that hold the frame for the electrical and push it out of the way. That provides the room to remove the pulley. The cap nut is hard to get off, I recommend using small pliers to rock it/unscrew it. I reused the same cap even though I had ordered a new one. The new one is too hard to get started in a small space. Again, do yourself a favor and place the dryer on it front. Much easier on the back. By the way, I didn't think the pulley was going to stop the noise, because the old one didn't look worn. However, it did. And no, it wasn't the glides. I installed them first and restarted the dryer and had the same squeal. The new pulley wheel did the trick.

Front brearings worn and slides missing

Removed the top by removing the two screws in the top of the door. Then removed the front by removing a screw on each side. To remove the bearing I had to remove the light bulb and then pull from the top. It popped right out. Installed the new bearing, inserted the slides. Although it still looked in good shape, I replaced the felt seal since I had the front open. Reinstalled the door and the top and I was done. Easy Peasy, Saved myself over $100.
