Loud Squealling While Drying
Take time to examine your machine before ordering parts, I did not need to expensive roller wheel kits , I needed two washers for the roller wheels. I pulled it apart and used the snap ring pliers to pull the roller wheels off,put the washer behind the wheel , I added a dab of hi temp grease to inside of roller and shaft. Put it back together. Quite as a new one. . The rest of the parts are straight forward . . Good luck

dryer door would not close
i know nothing about appliance repair. i received the part and fortunately, it was only the latch part on the dryer, vs. the door which needed to be replaced. i popped the old on out with a screwdriver and put the new part in by pushing it in lightly with my fingers. perfect.

The male side of the latch broke
After receiving 2 door latch kits that didn't include the male component, I was forced to "Rube Goldberg" the broken latch. One side of the male latch clip broke, so I shimmed up the broken side with a plastic shim I designed and installed myself. The dryer is again functional and I hope the male side of the latch arrives someday, so I can repair the dryer properly.
