You tube has quite a few videos that walk you right through the entire process. Due to the age of my dryer I replaced the belt and the Rear Drum Bearing kit while I had it apart. There were videos for all of it. Easy fix.

I had trouble with the little piece on the back side of the dryer not lining up with the bearing housing. I also didn't see how the drum was gonna stay in place but finally realized the front cover lines it up. All in all it was awesome to get the part I needed so quickly and cheap, thanks a lot.

The repair video from PartSelect.com was excellent in describing how to fix the dryer. All of the parts were included in the replacement kit, including the screws and ball bearing. I was very impressed with the quality of the kit and the video. A $25 kit probably saved me hundreds in repair cost and saved me from having to buy another dryer. Here's to another 14 years of use!

Ordered the part from PartSelect.com. It came in a couple of days, which was nice. My wife was all over me to fix the dryer, or buy a new one. Needless to say, I didn't think the old one was done. The bearing assembly had an instructional video. This provided easy to follow instructions, and simple advice even I could follow. Everything went well, and the dryer is now quietly running as good as new. Awesome website, and the customer service is excellant too. WE use PartSelect.com at work all the time. Im a property manager, and the parts and advice save us thousands every year. Thanks guys!

The dryer made a clunking noise as it was turning

I used the PartSelect website to diagnose and repair the dryer. The video shown was a different model. Mine is a front loader. I just had to figure out how to get the top and front panels off myself. I just took my time as to not break anything. Once I did that the video showed me how to remove the belt tension and remove the drum and belt together. The hitch pin was a little different so I called to make sure the parts were OK. I then vacuumed out the cabinet installed the parts, the drum, reset the belt tension and then the covers. It sounded sweet when I started it up. Mission accomplished! $41 vs. a couple of hundred I suppose.

squealing, very noisy dryer!

  • Customer: Vern from Sedalia, MO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

I used the video, and it helped me a lot! I got the drum out, installed the new bearing, greased the new shaft and the receptacle, then I reassembled. When I tested it, mine was still very noisy, so I removed the drum once more and cleaned/added some grease on the tensioner bearing. This was the cause of the noise in my case, but the bearing & housing were nearly shot, so something would have given out very soon. I would suggest to grease the tensioner the first time to save time and effort. (And save some of the grease for the tensioner pulley). SAFETY TIP: there was also a ton of lint that got trapped inside the unit!!! Clean your dryer once per year to prevent it becoming a fire trap!

Loud squealing while drying

The consensus seemed to be that the loud squealing was most likely the rear drum bearing needing to be replaced. Although the repair went very well (great video!), it did not fix the problem. BEFORE you go the route of replacing the rear bearing, first pop up the top and see if a little piece of plastic that is attached to the top middle of the front panel by a screw is rubbing against the drum (you have to have a load going). I removed this part (I could not find it listed on any parts list) and the squealing stopped. I have no idea what the purpose of this part is, except for maybe keeping the drum from dropping too far down if the load is really unbalanced. This plastic part is on the dryer that has the controls on the front (it has the ability to be stackable) and might not be on the other unit that has the controls on the top back. If anyone has posted this as a possible cause of the squealing, I haven't seen it.

First I like fixing things for myself. So I looked the problem up on the internet. Found the repair tech that I needed. The found your parts site. And BOOM. Looked up mt part on your site. Very easy you had everything I needed. And you got it to me quick. THANKS. When the part hit my mailbox. Everything I needed was there. I pulled the plug. Fliped the lid up. Took off the front. Removed belt off the ideler. Removed drum replaced bearing assy. Put it back together. Closed the lid and pluged the unit in. Worked so well I felt like a pro. My wife was tickled pink. Just like a new one. Thanks guys for making me look good and saving me a lot of money. Will use this site again. I give you 2 thumbs up.

Pushed new knob on the piece that was sticking out. No tools needed, it was very simple to replace. Took ten seconds. Your service when we called about our problem was excellent, the part shipped in a very timely manner, and replacement was very easy. All in all, our dealings with your company have been great. Thank you.
