Viewed a video from your site on how to do it which made the job go very smooth. Removed three screws behind the control display and then two more to be able to remove the top of the dryer and then the control display. Disconnected the door switches and then loosened only the two bottom screws of the front panel and lifted it out. Everything that I needed to do was on the backside of the front panel. Snapped out the damaged Top Bearing and installed the new one after swapping out the light fixture. Then installed both sets of Slides and last was the Felt Drum Seal by pressing it into its channel with my finger and then a flat blade screwdriver. Took the opportunity to do a super cleaning job on the lint trap and blower wheel. Also inspected the Drum Belt. Put the unit back together in reverse order plugged in the power and gave it a test. Working like new. I also want to say that I received all the parts within 24hrs of placing the order and saved over Fifty Dollars on them. I will buy all my parts here from now on. Thanks.

Dryer Belt Squealing

I followed the provided video precisely. Made the job quite easy. My only problem is I'm 6'2", 275 lbs. with bad knees. Can't go at it exactly as shown in the video because I can't squat down in front of the dryer without pain. Called in a neighbor of smaller stature for him to come from one side, and me from the other. Worked flawlessly. Video is excellent. I do recommend wearing gloves and/or long sleeve shirt. I cut up my arms a bit, but that could have been easily avoided.

I originally started to try to figure the problem out on my own, thinking it had to be a bearing of some sort. I soon realized I was in over my head just a little bit, so I looked online for some solutions and found the tutorial for my exact dryer on YouTube. After watching and cloning the steps on YouTube I found that my top bearing and slides were broken or missing. I found the parts I needed relatively easily on Partselect.com once I had the make and model. I needed the dryer as soon as possible so I had the parts next day delivered, and they showed up the next day. That evening after work I removed and replaced the top bearing, slides, drive belt, and light bulb. The YouTube tutorial was invaluable to me and the diagrams were spot-on. The total professional repair cost was around 300, my total 96. Thank you PartSelect.com

My husband and I identified the problem by taking the dryer apart. Then we went online and found parts select website that was so easy to use. All I had to do was put in our model number of our dryer and it brought up all the parts. This made it so easy to find what parts I needed to use also after I put in one part it gave suggestion of what parts you might need. I ordered all the parts that I needed and had them delivered overnight. I received them the next day in the morning. The parts were easy to replace especially with the videos that parts select has to watch to fix your item. Thank you parts select for the great help!!

Dryer started squeaking and hten crashed

I called a repair company out to see what was going on. They found the problem which was the front bearing. Then he told me all the parts inside with exception to the motor and motherboard would go out in the next year because of the age and wear. He offered me a quote of $675 to replace all the parts. The replacement of the dryer is about the same cost. So I sent him packing. I got online and found the bearings and parts I needed for about $100 with shipping. I removed the front panel and replaced the front bearing where the drum of the dryer rolls over the curved plastic bearing. Had to replace the little plastic sliders as well. Then I replaced the rear bearing just for good measure. Thing hums like it is brand new and I did it for $100 in parts from Partselect, a little help from the installation video on their website, and about 1.5 hours of my time. The wife was very happy.

There is a video for this repair that partselect.com did. I watched the video . These are perfect instructions. Total time for repair was 40 minutes and this is the first time I ever worked on a clothes dryer. Make sure you have a #2 square screwdriver before you start.

Idler Pulley Replacement

  • Difficulty: Easy

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.

Took the back off/there were six phillips head screws. Took the protective cover off the Interlock Switches and found the problem. One of the buttons was jambed and would not move. I pulled the switch up and pulled the connecting wires. This took a little bit of doing as the connectors have been set for over 8 years. I used a pair of needle nose pliers. I reconnected the new switch and punched both switches and the washer started. It was an easy repair after that, putting everything back in reverse order.
