Male end of door catch broke

  • Customer: George from Hamden, CT

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

First, I replaced the male end which was just two screws and simple replacement of pushing the fastener into the door frame. When finished I noticed the female end was damaged as well. Glad the female part came as well. This required taken off the front trim around the door (four screws - 2 each side) and then the door. The installing of the female end was easy with a little push. The damaged female end was already hanging out so easy to grab and remove. Otherwise I would have had to remove the front panel. Note You need to put the door trim back on before reattaching the door.

Removed lower panel. Disassembled air duct. Replaced part and reassembled. Unfortunately that didn't fix the problem. I did figure out that it is not temperature related like I originally thought. I jumped out the timer and the unit will run continuously, so no heat fault problem. I ordered the timer assembly today, I hope that does it, if not you probably won't hear from me because my wife is going to kill me! ha ha Take care, keep up the good work! Your place rules!

squealing noise, when starting drying cycle

  • Customer: Manuel from Vacaville, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Watched the on site repair video, which was very helpful. I placed the dryer on a tarp in the family room prior to dis-assembly. Using the putty knife to push in the spring latches holding down the top lid, and propping it up while removing the 2 screws, holding the front, disconnecting the wires to the light and door switches, noting the color coding of the wires. Removed the front drum support, drum to get access to the rear drum support rollers (2ea) and the idler pulley wheel. You will need snap ring pliers to remove the rollers. Also note the configuration to the drum belt. Placed a small amount of bearing grease on the rollers spindles and re-installed the rollers. Reinstalled the drum, belt, front drum support, hand spin the drum to check belt and drum. Reinstalled the front and wires, snap down the top lid and reconnected the dryer to laundry room utilities. Test run and Wa-La, a quiet dryer. I'm thinking the noise came from the idler pulley wheel, or one of the rear drum support rollers, but couldn't tell by looking at either of them. So it's a good idea to replace all three rollers.

loud squeal on moderate to heavy loads

  • Customer: Russell from Seffner, FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

Using a Nut driver, I removed the front bottom plate on the front (2 bolts), then the door assembly (2 more). I took pictures of the wires with my phone before I removed them so that I could ensure they went back on the correct posts. I removed the front exhaust assembly (4 bolts), then pivoted the top back to make room to remove the drum (2 more). I had to rotate the drum while removing forward it to walk the belt off of the drum. The snap ring pliers made short work of the snap rings, and the rollers were off. I blew out the insides (very dusty) and inspected for any other problems. I greased the roller studs with a small amount of axle grease and replaced the rollers, securing them with the washers and snap rings. I placed the belt on the drive roller and around the tension roller, and looped it over the back right corner of the dryer while i placed the drum back into position. I rotated the belt back on until it was in its proper place and the drum was sitting on the back rollers. I then replaced the front and referenced the pictures that I took to get the wires back on correctly. The drum was a little tricky getting the tabs on the bottom front flanges in the slot, the drum resting on the front sliders correctly, and the exhaust connected to the blower motor in all at the same time. It took me several tries to get it right. I pivoted the top back on and after securing that, re-installed the door assembly and the bottom front plate. Works Great!! And less than $30! I probably should have replaced the belt as well, but the belt was in pretty good shape.

Its not a problem, simply old and needed to be replaced to make the dryer more efficient.

No repair at all. Simply pulled out the old filter and slipped in the new one.

Drum glides had worn through

  • Customer: Andrew from Clarklake, MI
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I took the front panels off of the dryer, removed the damaged glides and replaced them with the new glides (including the bracket on one side which had been ground thin by the dryer drum wearing on it). I also replaced the cylinder felt seal which had been damaged by the improper rotation of the dryer drum. I had to use some clamps to hold the felt seal in place at two different points so that I could stretch it around it's track. With another person present the clamps wouldn't have been necessary. Everything was very easy to access and replace!

Removed bottom panel, removed door, removed front, removed brace holding drum in place, removed cylinder belt, removed drum. Quickly able to remove both drum support rollers and idler Pulley wheel. I lightly greased the roller arms and installed the new rollers and idler pulley wheel that I purchased from PartSelect.com. I put it back together in reverse order (including new cylinder belt) and have a quiet dryer again. Cost around $40 for all the parts versus over $500 for a new dryer. If I can do it, anyone can.
