Constant Screeching

  • Customer: Elizabeth from New city, NY
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I search on the Internet to troubleshoot. I began to disassemble the unit with information I gathered from other websites. I checked the idler lever and knew indeed that was the screeching culprit. Once, I figured out the parts I would need to do a thorough job (idler lever, 2drum support rollers, multi-rib belt), I searched for parts and came upon partselect.com. I got more thorough review via the partselect videos on how to replace everything and put it back together. If I knew about this site and the detailed videos it provides for each part I ordered, I would have saved myself at least 1.5 hours from the reasearch and disassembling time. I followed the videos and only asked for backup help when I was putting the new belt around the idler lever. Hearing the dryer run again without the screeching was such a relief!

Followed the instructive videos on this site. Purchased more repair items than I thought I might need since I wasn't sure what I'd find. Turned out the drum support rollers were fine so I didn't remove them. Problem was a failed bearing on the idler pulley lever. Replaced that and the belt (for good measure). Returned what parts I didn't use. Thanks PartSelect!!

I did repair as video had shown. it was a challenge I prefer not to persue, with having no professional mechanical background. The repair was a sucess and with only a 60.00 charge for parts and 1 day shipping I would do it again.I have the origonal belt for backup if new one breaks in future.Duane

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.

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!
