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)

In previous work, I replaced the rollers, but the noise remained, so I figured it was the Idler that was the problem, it appeared to be worn. The repair is pretty straight forward, open the cabinet, remove the front and remove the belt. Once the belt is removed take the old idler assembly out and put the new one in. Making sure you the entire assembly is inserted properly into the guides. I then put a new belt on as I figured that as long as I had gone this far, might as well replace the belt to prevent future problems and more work. I put the belt on and then put the drum back in, making sure it seated properly on the rollers. The hard part is getting the belt on the idler and drive pulley properly as there was no way to prop the idler all the way back against the spring pressure. However once everything is aligned everything was set properly. Replaced front and closed top. Unfortunately the noise remained, it seems the real cause of the noise was the fan assembly which had self destructed at the hub and was no longer turning at the same speed as the motor shaft. I opened up the fan assembly and removed the fan. I used one of the rollers as a hug for the fan and installed a set screw into the side so that the fan would lock onto the shaft. The roller had the same diameter hole as the motor shaft and all went together perfectly. Problem solved for now. Nothing I read suggested that this could be a problem and I never suspected that it would be as it was pretty much a closed system. I proceeded to order a new fan from Partselect. Incidentally, the new fan hub opening is nowhere near the proper size, I split the fan trying to get it to go on the shaft, that was even after filing some of the material off. The difference is at least 1/16 inch smaller than the shaft diameter.

Followed the directions from online site. Checked the voltage to the machine, checked the door switch, checked the high limit thermostat checked the high limit switch and found that the red marked switch had no continuity. Ordered the switch and replaced it and started using my dryer

removed the cover over the blower wheel. Released the clamp and retaining ring. put the new blower wheel back on the axle with the slot so it couldn't rotate on its own. Reset the clamp and rings, put the cover back on the blower and put the face of the dryer back on and rehooked the vent hose and electric and was back in business. Took about 20 minutes with the new parts

These two parts would keep the dryer from starting but were not my problem. I misdiagnosed this problem. Using a meter to check continuity across the terminals, I checked these two parts and one looked like it had resistance. It did and was suppose too. Not having anything to compare to I ordered both parts. The actual problem was a heat switch that is tucked around the back of the dryer, up against the heating element. It has two white wires running to it. I tested it and it was open. When I joined the wires together, my dryer worked.

Unplugged the dryer, popped the top open, removed the old fuses and installed the new ones. Even removed the front panel & vacuumed out all the built up lint that had caused the fuses to blow. The video available on your site showing how to make the repair was excellent. Showed me everything I needed to know.

I put in the symptoms and was told that 66% of the time it was the high limit thermostat and fuse. I ordered the part and watched the instruction video. The configuration of the dryer was exactly as shown in the video so the installation went very smooth. The dryer has been working perfectly ever since.

I went on this site and started to search for possible parts that I thought I could change out that would make my dryer run after having changed out my time that wasn't broken (lol). I stubbled across the section that had troubleshooting tips on it . Wow I couldn't believe my dryer was on there!!! So I looked at the number 1 problem most people had with this model dryer and it was the high limit kit. So I figured for $22.00 what would it hurt so I ordered it and it got to me in 2-3 days and it was soooooooooo easy to change . I couldn't believe I was thinking of buying a new dryer . My old dryer has been drying clothes ever since and no problems . I owe it all to this site . Thanks guys at partselect and everyone else out there that took the time and left comments . It saved me $500.00 that I didn't have to spend after the holidays . You guys are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
