I called my boyfriend
taking it apart was easy the hard part was removing excess plastic from D shaped hole in wheel. There is so much plastic in center hole that it will not seat on shaft. I had to use a drill and dove tail file to do this project. F.Y.I. this was the second wheel the first i broke when it was half way on the shaft tap lightly my friend.
Replaced the drive motor using the installation video listed with the part. The instructions were accurate and very easy to follow.
Very simply followed the instructional videos on the website. Their step by step instructions were easy to follow and the video detail was great. I found the website in a search for diagnosing a noisy dryer. Once I saw the videos and ordered the parts I couldn't wait to complete the repair. It took less then an hour and the dryer runs fine. I hope to get many more years out of it and have no fear that in the future I can complete other repairs if need be.
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.
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.
I pried 2 front snaps to lift lid. Nutdriver removed 2 screws to lift off front. The switch easily popped out of bracket to free the front panel to set it aside. Tumbler lifted out exposing the cause of the broken belt was due to a damaged motor pulley. I used a screw driver to "lock" motor in order to back off the damaged pulley, then inspect and vacuum out inside of dryer. The new parts arrived in a surprisingly short time and included an easy to follow belt installation diagram. Once the new pulley was in place, I replaced tumbler with the belt around it. Then I was able to reach both hands under the barrel from both sides of blower, in order to "thread" the belt around the idler wheel and the new pulley. then replaced front panel and popped the door switch back in place and the top snapped back on. All done and a happy mother-in-law was able to dry her clothes once again.
Dryer is two years shy of 30 years old. But we fixed it just like it was shown in the video. The video was in my opinion much clearer than the written instructions. Possibly I'm just more of a visual learner than a text book learner. :o) Anyway, we found the fix very easy to do and would highly recommend watching the video to make the job go quickly and smoothly. Dryer runs great once again after what was at most 1/2 hour fix. Thank You!
Replaced belt - unplugged, took top loose, took front off, took drum loose, put new belt on the small pulleys & then put belt on drum - easing it to proper place by turning drum, put drum in place, put front on, (2 small screws (nut type) pulled top down. Plugged in. DONE. PLEASE NOTE. I'M A 76 YEAR OLD LADY. Works fine
