Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
Belt Wheel was broken at axle. Terrible noise.
Removed the top and back of dryer with screw socket. It was quite easy. Then, I removed the broken wheel by releasing the tension spring. I replaced the wheel. The toughest part was re-threading the belt. But, even that was simple. The dryer runs smoothly and quietly again!

cracked burner know
If you remove knob and sleeve remains, you have to use needle nose pliers to remove. Pull straight up, don't wiggle back-and-forth too much. If you put too much pressure on glass-top, it can crack. Prying is DANGEROUS on glass-top stoves.

Plastic Knob Cracked off machine
It was super easy...as the knob (Part No. 18 on our Whirlpool Duet Dryer) broke off cleanly leaving the metal pin exposed....(we had been turning it with pilers in the interim) so I just popped the new knob on and we were good to go! It was really easy to do and easy to locate the necessary part on your site. I won't hesitate to use your company and website again. Thank you for making all the parts available and saving us a service call!

The knob that controls the wash setting broke
It only took a few seconds to slide on the new knob after it arrived by UPS. The part arrived sooner than scheduled. Great service and product.

Control knob broke - because entirely plastic, turning interior metal selection rod
Pulled off the broken knob. Fairly disgusted with Whirlpool for not bothering to put a metal / aluminum sleeve inside to avoid the exact breakage I experienced. Part Select, however, had the part, got it to me exactly in the time frame I asked for and it was the correct part. I would definitely use Prat Select for any such need.
