Loud squealing while drying

  • Customer: Brian from Brier, WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

The consensus seemed to be that the loud squealing was most likely the rear drum bearing needing to be replaced. Although the repair went very well (great video!), it did not fix the problem. BEFORE you go the route of replacing the rear bearing, first pop up the top and see if a little piece of plastic that is attached to the top middle of the front panel by a screw is rubbing against the drum (you have to have a load going). I removed this part (I could not find it listed on any parts list) and the squealing stopped. I have no idea what the purpose of this part is, except for maybe keeping the drum from dropping too far down if the load is really unbalanced. This plastic part is on the dryer that has the controls on the front (it has the ability to be stackable) and might not be on the other unit that has the controls on the top back. If anyone has posted this as a possible cause of the squealing, I haven't seen it.

First I like fixing things for myself. So I looked the problem up on the internet. Found the repair tech that I needed. The found your parts site. And BOOM. Looked up mt part on your site. Very easy you had everything I needed. And you got it to me quick. THANKS. When the part hit my mailbox. Everything I needed was there. I pulled the plug. Fliped the lid up. Took off the front. Removed belt off the ideler. Removed drum replaced bearing assy. Put it back together. Closed the lid and pluged the unit in. Worked so well I felt like a pro. My wife was tickled pink. Just like a new one. Thanks guys for making me look good and saving me a lot of money. Will use this site again. I give you 2 thumbs up.

impossible to get to the screws without dropping them.the only way to replace the part was to over drill the holes and install from the rear of the dryer using small bolts and nuts.got bad cuts and scrapes from the sharp edges on the cabinet. after all this , it is still over heating. ordered the other part to fix and it looks like the front of the dryer has be taken off and the drum removed to fix it

Started with an annoying squeaking noise until the shaft broke and the drum hit the floor, KTHUD!!

I ordered the rear drum assembly on Monday evening and the part came on Wed at 11 am. I started the repair at 1 and finished at 3. It would have been faster, but my computer kept freezing during the repair video. The video was so easy to follow. I could have used longer arms or a helper, but I managed to get the job done by myself. Needless to say, my husband was thrilled. Great service. Thanks

Heating but drum not turning

  • Customer: Richard from New Orleans, LA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

With drum not turning, I removed rear access panel and confirmed that the belt was missing from the motor pulley. The instructional video provided by PS was extremely helpful. It made the job simple. Removal of drum thru front frame was the most difficult part which was relatively easy. Once the front panel and drum were removed, I could then see that the front drum top glide nylon/felt strip needed replacing which I then obtained.

Rear bearing was squeaking

Repair went just according to the video except to pull the drum out there was a plastic lock at the front of the dryer. It was held in by one screw and easy to take off. When I pulled the drum out the armature and spring that hold the belt tight fell off. I panicked a little, but easily put the pieces back in place. When I started the dryer for the first time it sounded odd but realized it was the sound of all the grease spreading itself around the bearing.

Used wiring diagram in back of machine control head. UNPLUG DRYER! Removed panel off control head and motor access cover at bottom of dryer. Tested door switch continuity first, then continuity from control timer to motor. Found open circuit on white wire. Opened top of machine (pops up at front) and found thermal limiter on back of machine was burned and caused open circuit. It's a little awkward to get to the screws with the drum in place. Use a 30º angle ratching 1/4" ratchet wrench with a magnetic #2 phillips bit.

I called a wonderful friend who diagnosed the problem; ordered the repair part; and fixed it!!!

My dryer was squealing, which we ignored for awhile, then the dryer was beginning to have trouble turning.

I followed the video on your site which was very helpful and informative. The one thing that proved to be more difficult than it appeared in the video was reengaging the belt. Every time we tried to do it in the way the video showed, the tensioner arm would come off. The belt was very tight, even with that arm pulled back. We ended up just putting the drum part way in and then putting the belt on the arm and motor, and then stretching it over the drum. Perhaps because it was new, it was so tight. The rest was a breeze. Just followed the video. Was quoted $310 for this repair and I did it for $40! Thanks for your help and website! What a break in a terrible economy. You helped us out!

Raised the lid, removed 2 little screws,slipped the front panel off, disconnected the safety switch, vacuumed everything, slipped on the drive belt and reversed my way out. It was way more easy than filling a grease gun!
