    The heater chamber end was damaged and out off round in shipping
    My neighbor was a maintenance man who was able to use his crimping tool to rework the chamber and flare the chamber to fit the heat duct to the dryer drum. Once the chamber was secured the job was simple! The videos really helped!

    Dryer was extremely noisy squeeling and sqeaking
    Followed installation videos and removed entire front of cabinet including door, loosened belt and removed drum. Only problem was the snap ring pliers I had were too large to fit in the holes of the drum roller snap ring. Ended up taking two 3 inch deck screws with sharp points, putting them in the snap ring holes and removing the ring by that method. Did the same when replacing it although this time, had to have my wife put a flat screwdriver against it while I pulled it apart with the screws. Rest of the repair was quite easy and dryer works great.

    Replace Heater & Housing Assembly and HL Thermostat
    Goggled instructions to learn how to remove old parts and install new parts. Most difficult was putting the screw in the back of the heater assembly and removing screws from old thermostat to use to install new thermostat on new heater assembly. New thermostat did not come with screws. The housing on the heating unit was too long and had difficulty getting front end of the heating unit fastened to the bottom of the dryer. Once completed, dryer working fine.

    no heat from dryer
    Removed the from panel from the dryer unit. Although we replaced the 4 items listed above, the main cause of the problem was the heating element thermal insulator. Upon removing the front panel and inspection we noticed the heating element was cracked/broken, Actually there were two of them, so we reordered another and replaced them both. they look like a copper screw with a collar and a ceramic head. Once these were replaced the dryer worked fine.
