The repair was done by my spouse. We replaced the rear drum bearing. We installed with the instructions sent by parts select. They were very accurate. The total repair took about 1 and 1/2 hours that was only because we cleaned out the entire dryer also, by using an air compressor to clean and blow out all the lint built up. This improved drying time and the part stopped the noise. I don't recall exactly what tools were used besides screwdrivers. This was our first time to replace anything in our dryer of 12 years old. I feel that if you follow the instructions that anyone would be able to do this repair. We did the repair in our garage because you need the room to work on it.

Loud squeal when dryer was running.

First I have to say that this was the fourth appliance repair I've done with Partselect parts. I am very pleased with all parts I've gotten from Partselect. The things I've ordered here are delivered quickly and are correct. Now for the dryer repair. I guess the most important tool I had to complete the job was the excellent video demonstration on the Partselect web site. I found that by following the instructions on the video even I had no problems. I spent more time cleaning the inside of the dryer than I did on installing the rear drum bearing. I probably saved us several hundred dollars by making the repair myself. At first I was intimidated but after I got the top off of the dryer and the front off the repair was simple and straightforward. Total time of repair was about fifteen minutes. Total time spent cleaning the lint and other stuff (I did find two dimes and a penny) was about forty five minutes. One hour total and my wife and I have a dryer which is acting like it did when we purchased it in 2001. Thanks to Partselect. Barry

Squealing noise when drum would turn.

I highly recommend watching the repair video. I could stop the instructions and do the procedure then resume instructions for the next step. I would recommend you have a second person to help lift the drum up & out of the dryer frame. And ladies please instruct your husbands to watch the video all the way through. Mine lifted the top off the dryer and stuck his hand in and cut his finger immediately on a sharp piece of metal. You know because they don't need to read the instructions.

It was squeaking very loudly

I watched the video and the instructions were perfect. The only thing I did differently was I had a second person help me to hold the bearing spring and hold the drum knob in place. I also used the rear access panel to disengage and re-engage the belt because I know I am not good at doing things blindly. You will definitely want to pre-thread the knob assembly before you screw it to the drum. Glad the kit included a bearing because the old one was completely gone. It took me so long because I took the opportunity to vacuum 10 plus years of lint and I was using it as a teaching opportunity. If I have to replace the heating element I think it will be much faster.

It was super easy! I followed the PartSelect video and everything went fine. Getting the drum out of the machine was a bit tricky but once it was out, the rear bearing kit went in without any problems.

installed the back bearing with the ball bearing and dropped in the rear drum bearing and tried to install the drum to the rear drum bearing, but we could not find the screw holes to attach the drum, we tried and tried and finally I came up with the idea to take the drum out and screw the drum bearing while we had it ouside and that worked out beautifu lyl and all we had to do was reinstall the drum and all we had to do was lift it up just a little and drop it into the retainer rear retainer' and then all we had to do was install the tension roller which we had a little trouble but we finally figured it out and now it works just fine, it would a lot if there was a diasgram included on how to re-install the tensioner

Removed the panel between the dryer and washer. The gas valve was right in front. The wires were in a plug and easy to remove from old part. The solinoid held in place by a clamp with two screws.

Dryer not heating up consistently

My dryer was heating up very briefly blowing hot air initially then cool. I have a stacking washer/dryer set (2002). I initially turned off the gas valve at the wall, ran the dry for several minutes to clear the gas line, then unplugged the power. I was then able to pop the top using a flathead screw driver, securely prop it open, unhook the wiring harness to the front panel, unscrew the two front panel screws, and remove the entire front without having to unstack the units. From there, you remove the two screws holding the bracket over the coils (2 of them), remove the electrical connectors attached to both coils and replaced them with the new ones. I then replaced all brackets, screws, and such (you'll need to lift the drum when putting the front back on and make sure it is lined up), plugged it back into power and turned on the gas to test the unit which worked perfectly. The 62% of the time seems to be an accurate figure as nothing else had to be done to the unit. Pretty easy stuff...good luck.

Loud screeching metal sound from the back when dryer is running

This video by Steve Ash was spot on . In our case the white rear support bearing had melted and reformed around the shaft, preventing us from being able to pop the drum in the way described in the video. We used pliers to unscrew the screws on the rear clip from the back of the dryer. The rest of it worked exactly as described in the video. Our model was White-Westinghouse DE600ADD1, which is not a model listed on the PartsSelect website. However the part worked very well. The dryer runs really quite now.

Pried the lid up and flipped it back then disconnected the front panel wiring harness and then popped the front panel loose at the top and dropped it down. Disconnected the ignition coils, removed the coil retainer bracket and replaced the coils. Reassembled it in reverse order, performed functional test. Success!

Changing the drive motor

Before you can remove the drive motor from the dryer, you will also have to remove the fan shroud and fan. To remove the fan from the drive motor shaft will require a 13/16 six point socket with an extension. Grip the belt pulley on the back of the motor with a pair for pliers so it doesn't move. Put the socket and extension on the plastic nut on the fan and very carefully turn clockwise (this is a left handed thread so it is reversed from a normal thread). If you end up rounding off the nut (which I did) you will have to beat a smaller socket on the nut and try again.Needless to say I ended up purchasing a new shroud and fan, since they build the shroud with the fan inside it. My suggestion is to purchase a fan and shroud in advance just in case you cannot get the fan off without ruining it. You can always return it if yours comes off easily. I hope this helps, as I had to wait another week to get my shroud and fan assembly.
