Were these instructions helpful?
Replaced the drive motor using the installation video listed with the part. The instructions were accurate and very easy to follow.
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.
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.
I called my boyfriend
removed front door panel had to turn tub around that was installed backwards at the factory then put belt on most dryers have a tension pulley wheel mine did not it had a tension belt bracket kinda odd never dealt with one like that but i figured it out replaced dryer front with the door and tightened two bolts at the top .plugged in the 220 voltage power cord installed vent pipe and job complete.
When reassembling, used a length of nylon cord to suspend the front end of the drum from holes in the side panels of the dryer cabinet, so that I could use both hands to reinstall the front panel. After installing the front panel, untied the cord and pulled it out.
1. All my son2. Place package with belt on kitchen table.3. Go out to a meeting.5. Come home and find note on table that dryer is fixed. ??
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.
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.
