Hello Jason, thank you for your question. The issue is probably a Thermal Limiter - Limit 220
Part Number: 134120900. If the thermal fuse is defective, damaged, or blown up then the dryer wont start, especially since it cannot be reset. We would recommend testing that part. It is usually located at the back right corner of the inside of the unit. We have an installation video as well that you can find at the link below.
The dryer starts to make a rubbing/grinding noise after running 30 45 seconds and continues if shut off and turned right back off. If off for a couple of minutes it starts the noise again in 30 45 seconds. Belt and pulleys appear ok. Thank you. Jim

Thank you for your question. If your dryer is making a grinding noise shortly after it starts, the drum glides may be worn and will need to be replaced. If the glides are fine, you will need to check the rear drum bearing, the drum support bearing, the felt seals and the ball hitch. If you have any questions, please let us know. We are open 7 days a week. We look forward to hearing from you!
Hello Morgan, thank you for your question! The lint filter for your model is part number PS417841. Customer service is available 7 days a week if you require assistance placing an order. Thanks again for reaching out!
First thought the problem was a stretched drum belt or bad idler pulley. Ordered a new belt and idler assy plus spring. Replaced those items with relative ease following suggestions obtained at this site.However, problem persisted and I now suspected a bad drum bearing. Odered the bearing kit and replaced same using the following procedure. 1. Removed the cover from the back of the dryer (held in place via two phillip head screws) 2. Pushed down on the idler assy and removed the idler spring to release the drum belt. 3. Inserted flat tip screwdriver between the top panel and the dryer main body in the front of the dryer to pry the top loose from the two retaining clips. 4. used phillips screwdriver to remove the two retaining screws (one left, one right) that hold the front panel to the main body of the dryer. (about a foot down from the top of the dryer). 5. disconnected the wiring plug on the top right hand side at the top of the dryer. 6. lifted the front panel slightly removing it from the main body and placed it to the side. 7. lifted the rear of the drum to release it from the bearing bracket and removed the drum belt. 8. Pulled the drum through the front of the dryer body and moved it to an open work area. 9. Reached into the Dryer and loosened the two bearing bracket screws with a nut driver. Here's where another pair of hands would have come in handy. Holding the ground bar on the back of the drum with on hand, reached into the dryer and finished removing the bracket screws somehow managing not to drop the tiny grounding ball (size of a BB) Removed the badly damaged plastic bracket, grounding bar, and grounding ball and set them aside to be discarded later. 10. Used impact driver with phillips attachment to remove two of the three screws that hold the bearing to the back of the drum (these are on the inside) The third screw's head stripped out and I had a very difficult time removing it. Had it not been for that, the job would have taken less than an hour. 11. I had my wife hold the bearing in place while I started the three retaining screws. 12. My wife also got behing the dryer and held the grounding bar in place while I installed the new bearing bracket . (this kept me from loosing the grounding ball) I just reversed the rest of the procedures to install the drum belt, drum, front panel, etc. The dryer works like new now, doesn't squeal. Also replaced the on/off switch knob (just pulled the old one from the stem and slid the new one on.
1. Unplug dryer from outlet 2. Using Lg. flat screwdriver, pry under the front edge of the top and release two spring tabs 3. Lift up top and tilt back out of your way 4. Unscrew two phillips scews on inside of front panel 5. Lift up and out the front panel. Two spring clips at bottom. 6. Rlease tension on drum belt at the motor. Access panel at rear of dryer. 7.Unscrew 3 screws from inside, center rear of drum. 8. Remove drum through the front of the dryer. You may have to spread the sides apart a little bit for it to fit 9. Lift up on the rear drum bearing to remove it from the bearing retainer. ( U shaped plastic socket) 10. unsrew 2 screws and remove the bearing retainer, ground ball. Ball retainer is on outside of dryer. 11. Vacuum everything--duct, blower, lint trap, ect. 12. Intall new bearing retainer and grounding ball, an assistant is helpful at this time, one to hold ball retainer on rear of dryer, one to screw it in from the inside 13. reassemble remainder of parts in reverse order.
