The knob came in the mail. I took it out of the package and it slipped right on! No fuss, no muss! And now I have a dryer that can be turned on with the knob and not a pair of pliers. thanks

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.

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.

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.

Dryer Doesn't Heat

I first had a problem with the dryer not heating. When I looked at the heating coil I could see it was broken. With much work I replaced the heating coil. The real pain in the ass was reattaching the dryer drum back to the bearing on the back of the unit. It is very difficult to find the holes on the rotating bearing and line them up with the 3 holes in the drum to insert the screws. Hence my mistake, I evidently didn't tighten the screws tight enough as they would fall out after an hours use and destroy the new coil. I replaced the coil but still no heat. . . . When the coil shorted out it damaged other electronics. I replaced two parts of the electronic (thermal limiter and high limit thermostat). Still no heat. I have another almost identical unit so I pulled the control panel out of it and still no heat. There is one other electronic part I see that I am going to replace but at this point I would rather eat a can of worms then look at it. I would highly recommend to anyone performing this procedure to really crank the screws in the drum tight and use blue locktite.

Taking the front of the dryer off was rather easy. A two screws under the control panel and once the flap that separates the washer and dryer was removed there are 4 more screws to remove and release the control panel (disconnect wire harness and let panel hang). Once removed, two more screws separate the door/front of the dryer. Remove those and the 4 on the top front of the dryer. When completed the only restriction you have are bracket mounts. Just give a good tug and the front should separate from the body. Thereafter, the drum can be removed by removing the belt first. Reach to the back and depress the spring loaded pully by moving it to the right, releasing the belt. Let the belt hang while you unscrew the the drum screws, 3 located in a triangle pattern inside the drum. Remove them and the drum from out of the dryer. Straight ahead of you is the heater assembly. In my case, only the coil had to b replaced. So it was as simple as removing the old and in with the new. Reverse your disassembly to get reassembly.

After using the pliers as quite the imperfect control mechanism, I decided it was too ghetto for a long term fix. I went where we all go, to the internet. Part select made it so easy to replace the part. Photos of all sides and inside of the knob gave me the confidence that I was ordering the correct knob. Thanks! A HAPPY customer!

Basically followed the You tube videos on standard, stand alone dryers as mine is a stack-able unit. Allow a lot of room to work. Unplug electricity and or the gas, vent hose and water hoses. Start removing screws as per the video, remove Belt then lift up then out the dryer drum. (The drum drops in from above on the back of the unit)the rest is remove and replace as you go. *TIP... I use my phone to photograph tricky areas so I can review as needed. It was more scary then difficult. You can do it!
