You pop the top of the dryer. Remove to hex screws which allow you to remove the front panel. Next you pull the drum off, snack the belt around the drum, motor and tension pulley and reverse the steps. The hardest part is getting the drum back in place without knocking the belt off the motor.

Male end of door catch broke

First, I replaced the male end which was just two screws and simple replacement of pushing the fastener into the door frame. When finished I noticed the female end was damaged as well. Glad the female part came as well. This required taken off the front trim around the door (four screws - 2 each side) and then the door. The installing of the female end was easy with a little push. The damaged female end was already hanging out so easy to grab and remove. Otherwise I would have had to remove the front panel. Note You need to put the door trim back on before reattaching the door.

I followed the instructions you supplied. All went well. The short movie that you supplied was fine but the only tricky part which included placing the belt over the idler wheel was not well done in that the repairman's arm covered the work area. Delivery time was excellent.

I was able to take apart the dryer myself and get old belt out, then my son helped me remove the drum and put new belt on. Well worth fixing; it works great again and the part with shipping and handling was only $17.00! better then price of new dryer!!!Thanks, Mary ( Cincinnati)

blower not rotating, hub worn

  • Customer: Kenneth from ELYRIA, AL
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Unfortunately, the part that came in was a major problem. The shaft hole was way undersized and probably made for a much smaller shaft then the one on this dryer. I had to bore out the shaft and drill and tap a set screw to lock the blower to the motor shaft. I would estimate that the opening was at least 1/8" smaller than the shaft and as it was molded, the flat for locking the blower had to be drilled out as well. Even so, as I pressed the unit onto the shaft, it split and I had to do major work to make the blower usable. Until now I have been very pleased with the quality of parts from Partselect however this critical part did not meet the manufacturer's specifications as to the bore for the shaft.
