Dryer drum would not tumble (rotate)

Take out dryer screen, and remove 2 retaining screws. Use putty knife to push both clips on the front corners of the top of the dryer to lift top off. The front of the dryer only has 2 retaining screws around where the clips are to remove the top. Remove those screws then lift up to disengage the hooks the front is sitting on. The drum should hang freely. Remove old belt/idler pulley assembly. When the new belt and pulley assembly are installed (slide the new belt around the drum, through the pulley assembly and around the shaft to the motor), rotate the drum a couple times to make sure it is lined up correctly. Then reassemble the dryer.

Squeeks like crazy while running

I replaced the drum rollers, belt and idler pulley, I had an 80-90% chance that it would fix the issue. The video on the website was spot on in every phase of the repair - just follow it as shown. By spending $45, I bet I'll get many more years out of this machine.

No heat,dryer belt was broken,drum wheels were replaced

Just like you showed in your instructions. But I am going to put the old idler pulley back in cause the new one makes a loud whining noise. Other than that it should be fine. The service I received from you guy's was great.This was a simple repair. Thank's again Bill

I just replaced the igniter, and vacuumed the dryer. After one day of use, the belt broke.

Purchased the belt and the idler pulley. Cleaned the rollers and used dry lube on the wheel bearings. Simple enough, lift the top after disconnecting the screen shoot. Pop up the lid. Dis connect two screws on inside, lift front panel off the bottom hooks, disconnect door switch. pull out drum. install belt and assembly. Close up dryer and done.

Tumbler belt broke and idler arm was worn

Being me-"let's get to it"- I first disconnect the power and, assuming the problem was in the back where there were visible screws, I removed the back and said "huh!" Just a bunch of wires and a heating core. So then I went to the owners manual, looked at "troubleshooting" and under "tumbler won't spin" it said "probably a belt problem. Replace belt." Well, I figured that! But how? So, went on line, found this site and the wonderful "how to" videos. Looked at the belt replacement and idler arm video a couple of times (a short video that clearly explains "how to," ordered the belt and new idler arm which I got within 3 days and voila! easy peasy repair. (A service call would have cost $100.00 plus parts; I did it for $30.00) One thing I wondered about was the Idler arm. The original equipment had a sleeve that the belt ran over; the replacement had a roller. Wasn't sure it if would fit ok. turns out it fit fine and with the roller for the belt, the dryer works much quieter. Tip: while you're waiting for parts, have a small box or something (I used a small waste basket on its side) to support the tumbler in a horizontal position. Bottom line: this is a great site. The washer is getting on in years so I'll likely come back to this site for help and parts.
