Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
Drum support rollers were shot, idler was changed as well, new belt installed, 2 new thrust washers and felt pads were installed as well.
Repair parts were exact OEM, went very smooth.
Longest part was cleaning the inside of dryer and cutting new vent pipe exit.

loud screeching noise, motor seized, long time to dry
disassembling took about ten minutes. found that lint needed to be cleaned out. idler lever pulley was locked up and the belt had worn the pulley down. guide felt pads were off the drum guides. motor seized up. studied videos and ordered parts for each problem. once parts arrived the total repair took a total of 45 minutes. saved $300-400, and did not have to buy a new dryer. dryer working better than it has in four or five years, heating up better and no noise. would recommend buying own parts and replacing. on a scale of 1-10, this is a 2. this is an electric dryer. hope this helps!

dryer made squeaking noise when first starting to run
I first watched the video and disassembled the dryer to see if I could determine what part was squeaking. All looked good except the wheel on the Idler lever which was tight. I vacuumed up the years of lint and reassembled the dryer and waited for the parts to arrive. I ordered the idler lever and also the 2 drum support wheels, belt and 2 drum guides since I thought that is was a good idea to go ahead and replace these parts once I had the dryer disassembled again. Good choice on the belt as once I removed the old belt there was a crack on the underside of the belt. I bought snap ring pliers at home depot but the tips were too big to fit the holes on the snap rings on the drum rollers. I bought another snap ring plier set from an automotive store that came wth 5 snap ring attachments - but again all were too large to fit the snap rings on the drum support rollers. I used a nail and small screwdriver to expand and pull off the snap rings but this approach was frustrating and time consuming. Not sure where to get snap ring pliers that are small enough to fit the holes on the snap rings - so hope that you have better luck locating a set thats small enough! I was able to return the pliers that I purchased - so all good. I was surprised at how easy the dryer came apart and how easy it was easy to work on. When disassembling the dryer - we took pictures of the wire connections before we disconnected them, however at one point we tilted the dryer back to clean behind it and the top slipped a little away from the side panel of the dryer and one of the wires that was connect to the wire block that is up by where the power cord connects cam loose - and it took some time to find and figure out a wiring diagram for this connection. Suggest that you take a pictire of this wire connection block once you lift the lid - just in case a slip occurs and a wire may disconnect. When replacing the idler lever -
have a little grease available when you install the new idler lever (between the arm and the bolt area as it constantly moves and the old brease has probably worn away) . After making these repairs I dont think I will ever buy a new dryer as any part , including the heater and motor would be easy to replace and cheaper than a new dryer.

Ugly squealing noise and getting louder.
The belt tensioner was the problem and the belt had very fine cracks in it so I ordered four parts: the belt tensioner, belt and the two drum rollers. I had to work to clean the fan and the LARGE dust bunnies. I'm writing this to encourage others to consider installing new duct work, mine was becoming a fire hazard. At a minimum clean all the duct work. Your dryer will work so much better. Thank you for your printable help!??

Rumbling and thumping then the drum failed to rotate under power
There was initial rumbling and thumping then the drum failed to rotate under power. I could however rotate the drum by hand. This site suggested the rollers or belt as well as the idler assembly. I decided to renew all the wearable parts and ordered the belt, rollers, glides and idler assembly. It was in fact the idler. The idler wheel had disintegrated and collapsed in the center. It must have run (rumbling) until it finally seized and stopped. Replaced all the parts and the dryer is even better now than new. It was a good opportunity to vacuum out all the lint inside the cavity (that took most of the time and also found $0.36 in loose change). Also found it easier to remove the electrical connections with pliers rather than pull on the wires and risk detaching the wire from the clip.

Dryer was vibrating & making a thumping noise
Went on line to this sites video's to diagnose the problem. Steve Ash is EXCELLENT. Put idler& roller replacement video's in my Favorite File! Ordered parts PS11741930&PS11741913 from this site on line. Good price, Fantastic 1 1/2 day delivery (Fed Ex ) Referred to great videos for installation. Hints: 1) Be sure to identify ALL wires 2) Be careful removing snap rings from rollers, I stretched mine and had to reform them.(new ones did not come with the rollers. 3) It would be a good time to replace the belt & drum pads when the drum is out.

The dryer was making a screeching noise due to a faulty Idler Lever and the dryer was not drying the clothes in sufficient time due to a bad belt.
Watched the videos first. Unplugged the dryer plug. lifted the top of the dryer and braced it. removed the front cover and bulkhead and disconnected the wires. Removed the drum and belt. removed the 2 screws to the motor plate to replace the idler pulley. installed the belt around the drum and inserted the drum. routed the belt around the idler pulley and checked for alignment and twists. reinstalled the bulkhead and the front cover. plugged the dryer cord back in and listened to a quiet dryer. The dryer also dried the clothes in one setting. Yahoo and saved a bunch of money fixing it myself. I recommend to anyone to watch the videos on site to diagnose dryer noises. You'll be amazed and save money doing it yourself.

Squealing during operation
The dryer was squealing, so I looked videos on how to take the dryer apart. After I got it apart, I spun the roller wheels, the motor, and the idler pulley, and only the idler pulley gave an indication that it was sticking or not spinning appropriately, so I ordered the part and replaced it. And sure enough, it was the problem after all!

When ordering 2 drum support rollers, is it necessary to order the drum support roller & assembly shaft as well? Does the assembly shaft get worn out, same as the rollers themselves?
For model number MDE508DAYW
PartSelect logo
Hi Tonya, Thank you for the question. It is a good idea to change both the roller and shaft at the same time. When the rollers are wore out it can put wear on the shaft and not replaced it can cause early wear on the new rollers. Hope this helps!

Dryer is squeaking i disassembled my dryer and greased the rollers and idle arm it stopped for two days and started back. Should i get both rotors wheels , felt pads and idler pulley.
For model number PDET910AYW
PartSelect logo
Hi Terry, thank you for your question. There are a number of parts that you should check when having a squeaking issue. You should actually take a look at all of your felt and glides to see if they are worn down and need to be replaced. Good luck with your repair.
