I watched the video which was extremely helpful. I recommend taking pictures of the wiring and any other components if you take apart as you go along . it would be foolish not to vacuum while your in there.

The dryer is old, and things just wear out with age. Me for example..

MOved all my wifes stuff, disasembled the dryer based one the instructions I found on Google. Located the worn out parts. Reassembled the unit with the new parts, which were an exact match, immagin that. Hooked the power back up. (Note: Safty First allways disconect the power source first. And it is recommended to give the unit and the vent system a through cleaning when you have it disasembled.) Gave trhe unit a quick smoke test. Job complete, wife almost happy,(Question ? if it was that simple to fix the Dryer why did you wait so long. Life is good once again.

The Bellow was moldy

  • Customer: Kevin from Portland, OR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
After removing the door, I pryd the bellows from the front of the washer then removed the front panel. I then rolled the spring from the rear of the Bellow and removed the old Bellow. Once I saw that the front edge of the washer drum was held on with spring clips I decided to remove it and clean the inside of that while I was in there. To get that part out I had to remove a couple cross braces. After cleaning I put it all back together. Getting the spring back on the back of the Bellow was a little challenging. Then put it all back together again. Now it looks great again.

Water would not pump completely out

  • Customer: Jason from Pleasant Hill, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Remove the back panel (4 screws). Use screw driver to loosen the bands. I had to tilt the washer up on a block to "twist" the part free. Once you see the bottom of the washer, you can see how the pump attaches and how to free it from the mount. The hardest part of the job was trying to get the hoses back on using one hand. That was a hard task. I used the shop vac to suck up the water that came pouring out of the drum once I loosened the bands. Not a hard repair. Unfortunately this did not fix my issue, but I wasn't going to go through hooking the old pump back up. (Was the far more expensive timing board that was faulty)

Found the part on parts select, which also had a very helpful DIY repair video to replace the part. I followed the video step by step to fix the tub cover, and the washer is back to full working condition!!! I could not be happier with Partselect.com. Their easy appliance break down to find the exact part that is broken; but to also include a instructional video for that part was amazing.

Increasing water leak

  • Customer: James from Scotts Valley, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

The machine had the old style boot drain hose with built-in bellows. The constant flexing of this tube caused a small crack in one of the bellows that gradually increased in size over time, causing water to leak into the bottom front part of the machine. Repair accomplished by removing the door (crosspoint screws), the retangular panel above the apron over the door, the apron above the door (5/16 socket), and the front lower panel (crosspoint screws). Pliers used to open the spring hose clamps, old leaky tube removed (re-use the rubber clearance washer that is on the tube). New tube installed easily, then panels reinstalled. 10 minutes total.

Squeaking Tumbler

  • Customer: Christopher from Rindge, NH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

My first thought was to replace the drive belt. I followed the excellent how-to video and, once inside, discovered that the belt was fine and that the right-hand drum roller was worn out and squeaking when I rotated it by hand. I should have listened to the other customers who said I should replace the drum support rollers at the same time as the belt. I did a thorough lint cleaning, put the dryer back together and ordered one roller replacement kit. It arrived in a just few days. I was able to lift the drum off the rollers and replace the bad roller without having to remove the drive belt. It took under 1/2 hour. There was only one omission in the video: I had to remove two metal tabs that hold down the dryer lid. Just one screw on each side. Recommendation: Purchase a pair of snap ring pliers. They make removing and reinstalling the the snap retainer ring a breeze in a tight working space.

First: Which of two thermostats is it? The high-temp thermostat serves an emergency purpose: if all else fails. The cycling thermostat takes care of the clothes. So I selected the cycling thermostat. Second: Remove two screws and lift the front panel forward, up to 45 degrees and off. Third: this thermostat is in the center, near the bottom, in the blower casing. Remove the shield in front of the blower. The thermostat is right there, with easy access. Fourth: Leaving wires on old thermostat, two screws remove the thermostat. Screw on new one. Shift wires one at a time from old to new, to keep them untangled.
