Loosened 4 spline head screws from top of panel. Tipped panel forward and interchanged wire spade lugs from defective timer to new timer. Removed old timer with a twist, installed new timer with an opposite twist. Put panel in place and re-installed the four screws. (Tip: the timer is held in place with a spring loaded flange. A thin blade screw driver can lift this flange to allow the twist motion for removing the timer.)

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
  • 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.

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.

Pulled off the knob, saw it was cracked, therefore it was not turning. The small metal part was stuck on the machine bit that the knob fits on so I pulled it off with a plier. Ordered a new timer knob that came with the metal part inside fit it on by hand in less than one minute.

Making a very loud squeaking noise

At first diagnosed the problem watching you tube videos but I did not open the machine. It took awhile to learn the first step to diagnose the issue is to find out if the squeak comes from the front or back of the machine. Mine was in the front. Once I did this I ordered the glides. When they arrived I opened up the machine and found out both the glides and the plastic piece upon which the drum turns and the glides attach were totally shot. I then ordered up that plastic piece. The repair was a breeze. Opening the machine, installing the pieces and closing up took about half an hour max. My reaction is the engineering behind these pieces is not up to par. Seemingly paper thin plastic can't stand up to the constant turning of the drum. As an ordinary consumer I expect much better. The old adage that they don't build em like they used to applies here. I was surprised by what was under the hood as they say. I almost had bought a new machine, and also consulted a repairmen which led me to believe a new machine would be my best option. However, I gave it a shot after doing some internet research and solved the problem for a fraction of the cost. And while I was in there I cleaned out the stray lint!!
