Squeaking when using dryer

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

It was simple to get drum out. I took all screws holding top and door out with out problems, then released the drive belt. It took some wiggling to get the drum out. I then was able to get at the rear elements. Taking the wires off the thermostat came off with a little persuasion. Removing shaft from drum took some stretching as I was doing the work by myself. I would suggest that a helper be used for the removal and replacement of the shaft. Reassembly was easy. Just reverse of the above.

This one is so easy my grandson could do it. The removal was easy, it broke off. The installation was a "snap in place". Thinking I needed a few days of dryer use without the handle, I made a temporary repair. I fished some heavy packing string thru the slots in the door, made a loop, than a knot. This gave my wife something easy to grab to open. Did not even need to do the temporary repair, the part arrived in one day.

Took top and front panel off. Pulled top bearing shroud off, replaced and installed the slides on new top bearing. Installed felt gasket on the bottom piece of lower shroud. Installed new lamp and put back together to check out. Dryer working great now. Should have changed the belt but it is not squelling so it is fine.

I followed other users comments and it was simple-four screws to unloosen the front panel and lift up the top and access the drum bearing. Two people makes it much easier to hold the door etc. Especially helpful was one's user info on where the two different slides went which was not well depicted on the drawings. The drum bearing snapped out with some pressure using your hands and snapped back in easily. The noise is gone!!!

I ordered to timer knob. Its was delievered in two days. When I received it, My bother and I looked at it expecting more than what we received, We said to each other this isn't going to work. I told my bother to go on and try it anyway. He took the old timer knob off and then removed a clamp at the base of the timer knob fitting. He then placed the timer knob back of the fitting. Turned the dryer on and it started right up. We were both shocked that it ran and that it was so easy to fix. Thank you PartSelect. Great customer service. I have already ordered a part for his refrigerator! Can't wait till we get the part. I'm sure its going to work just fine.

Opening the dryer door and removed the two screws located at the top of the opening. Pop off top lid of dryer by lifting up on front, and slide forward. I needed to break it loose by prying it up with a screw driver (use light pressure, be careful not to bend/scrape top), as it was first time every being removed. Remove two screws at top of front panel, hold up drum, and pull front panel forward. Unplug electrical cable to door, and removed front panel. Removed and replaced all four slides (2 Green slides & 2 Clear slides). Removed felt drum seal and replaced by lightly pushing in slots (couple of very light pushes using a screw driver was also needed). Placed front panel back on slots at bottom of dryer (REMEBER TO PLUG IN DOOR SWITCH), lifting (lightly) up on drum, and push in place, replaced all parts in reverse order. Top was a little tricky getting back on, but with a little push it snapped in place. Plugged in dryer performed test run everything worked perfect. Thanks to PartsSelect for their quick response to my order, you are definitely on my favorites listing for any future repairs and/or help.
