I removed the panel's that enclosed the drum, removed the drum and cleaned all the lint around the drum, heat panel, drive motor, and switch's.
removed the old support bearing and grounding ball then applied grease into the new support hub and reinstalled the new hub and grounding ball and then reassembled the dryer. Runs like it was new.

Parts Select has my high praise! Everything from the ease of the on-line ordering system to the video on how to install the parts (very well done!!) to the quick deliver...all was very impressive. My wife thinks I'm pretty cool that I was able to pull this repair job off and I definitely will come back if I need another part! Thanks for helping this "weekend warrior" shine! Bruce.

Two weekends ago, I was doing the laundry and when I went to turn the knob on the dryer, the inside part broken. I had to use a pair of plyers to turn the timer and finish drying the rest of my clothes. I had ordered from Parts Select three years ago and I went to their website which had been updated and found the part I needed. They even had instructional videos to describe which was really neat and it was very easy to order a replacement part. Because of the low price on the dryer timer knob, I ordered three just in case in the coming years the timer knob breaks again. Thanks, fm

I pushed the knob onto the metal dryer piece. It was repaired in less than 10 seconds. Also I was very impressed by the fact that I ordered the part on Thurday morning and I had the part the very next day. I am a happy customer and will recommend parts select.com to others

Dryer would not cut off on auto dry and after replacing the thermostat the problem still existed. Most likely something wrong with the timer part of circuit.

I decided to replace the cycling thermostat. I disconnected power, used the putty knife to push back spring type retainers underneath the top and
lifted up the front edge of the top and pushed it upward to rest on the back hinges.
Next, I unscrewed two sheetmetal screws on the edges of the front panel.
Then I supported the front panel upward while releasing the push type spring clamps before pulling it forward off the drum. I was able to swing
the front panel open from the left side and gently open it while watching one wire that was connected to it from the right side.
Then I was able to take the terminals off the thermostat noting which way they were connected.
I unscrewed the two screws holding the thermostat to the fan housing and replaced it with a new one. I assembeled from the front panel bacwards. until the top was back down.
Upon testing the unit I found out that the problem was not the cycling thermostat.
I plan to investigate the timer circuit that the thermostat controls next.
One can take out the thermostat and test it for cycling by removing it and checking terminals with ohmmeter x1 range and heating and cooling it with a hairdryer. Meter will read zero when thermostat is cold and closed. It will read infinity
or high resistance when it is open and hot.

Printed out what others said, took pictures of everything as I took it apart. I went slow. It all worked the first time I put it back, WOW!
Be careful if you are working with a gas line, use two wrenches to disconnect, less stress on the pipe.

You simply pry the old handle off with a flathead screwdriver, and then line up the new handle and snap it into place. It took less than 30 seconds! A breeze.
