Loud squeaking noise

Followed the video. Very helpful. There is no way I could have done this on my own without that guidance. Parts in Rear Drum Bearing Kit included new screws and metal support parts that are shown as reused in the video. To install these parts, I had to hold the back plate in place. A big piece of masking tape did the job nicely. The only major problem was tapping the holes in part that attaches to the drum -- very difficult. Needed my best Phillips screwdriver, leather gloves, and a lot of hand strength to get it done. I had to slightly ream out one of the holes to make the last screw fit. Minor problem - the idler arm is not retained by anything. The idler pulley and arm both fell off when I reinstalled the belt. I guessed right on how to get them back on the machine.

The dryer stopped heating - and I had a fit! IT was still turning, but not drying the clothes. My husband is a mechanic, from England, who has never worked on a dryer (it doesn't have gas, so why should he?), but he cracked it open, pulled out the heater housing with the coils and located the snapped coil. We researched online, found the part on this website, and ordered it, regular shipping. Had it in 2-3 days (including weekend time!). Very impressed. It only took him about 15 minutes to change out the part and put it all back together. ... but that's all I know really... It looked simple from the outside!

This was a stacked washer and dryer combo and is a lot more difficult to repair, requiring a lot more to take apart and put back together.

Dryer Made Loud Squeal During Operation

I set up my laptop with the partselect video going. Laid out my tools and the individual parts that were in the kit. I watched the video a segment at a time, performing the tasks in the same manner that the instructor did. All together, the process took less than two hours, I had no questions or difficulties, and the repair process went flawlessly and successfully. I had never done anything more complicated on a dryer than replacing the hose before this. The sense of pride in doing a repair of this level myself, and avoiding paying someone ridiculous fees to do it, is beyond description.

removed top removed the front slipped off old belt installed new belt replaced idler pulley assembly. removed 2 screws and replaced lint frame and screen. I would advise if you have an older dryer you open top, remove front and check ,out fan that is on other side of lint screen. my fan was so full of lint im surprised it didn't catch on fire. dryer was very noisy due to bearings being out on idler pulley assembly and built up lint in fan assembly. its works like new since I did repair. you can buy pulley assembly and belt for the same price as the lint screen and frame. less than $50 runs great.

Took out drum which was the hardest part because Im short so I needed a little man power to lift it up then out.... Replaced entire bearing parts and belt.... You do need a nut driver for that but we ended up using plyers which worked okay.... All in all it was way easier than I thought it was gping to be.... Now it sounds brand new.
