Insanely loud squeaking
With the correct parts and watching the video, it was so easy to repair. We ordered the wrong part (for the Electric Dryer when it should have been for the Residential Dryer) but the return was easy and we got the new parts super fast. Next time I would probably look at the offending part first before ordering just to make certain. But we used a socket set and Philips screwdriver and actually had our teens do all the work for experience. Fixed the loud noise one and for all.

Dryer drum was not turning when started.
I moved the dryer to a location where I could get to both the front and back sides. I opened the back by first removing the top cover and then the back. It requires either a Phillips head screwdriver or a quarter inch socket. In addition, it requires removing the four power wires which connect to the computer. If you are unfamiliar with the wiring layout, take a photo with your cell phone which you can then refer to when re-assembling. Once the back was removed, I saw that the belt was still intact, but the pulley which provides tension to the belt was frozen. Take a photo of the belt route between the motor and the pulley. Try to get the spring position in the photo. Remove the belt from the pulley by reducing the tension and then sliding the belt out (this assumes the belt is not broken). The pulley arm is held in place by a single bolt which can be removed by a socket set. Remove the arm with the pulley attached. Examine the pulley to figure out why it is frozen. In my case, the pulley had been frozen for some time and the belt had actually chewed through the pulley and was sliding (polishing) on the pulley axle? I used a pair of pliers to loosen the destroyed pulley by rotating it back and forth over the axle while gripping the arm the axle is attached to. As it loosened up I worked it off the axle. I used a cloth to clean the axle of grime from the belt, pulley, and dryer lint. The new pulley comes with a washer and triangular plastic "fastener". First you put on the washer, then the pulley and then you secure it on the axle by sliding the triangular fastener over the axle so it sits in a small grove near the end of the axle. Then put the pulley arm back by replacing the bolt. Make sure you do not overtighten the arm since it is intended to rotate about the bolt. If the dryer belt breaks, the spring will pull the arm down and throw a cutoff switch. Its operation should be obvious. Once the arm is back in place, refer to your photo and replace the spring (this can be tricky and frustrating, particularly if you don't use something like needle nose pliers). Once the spring is in place, depress it and re-install the dryer belt. Refer to the photo you took earlier if you've forgotten how the belt was routed. Then re-install the dryer's back panel, re-attach the electric wires (again refer to the photo you took earlier), and re-attach the top cover. You might want to test your handiwork at this point before you reconnect the dryer vent

Loud sreeching and vibration
I just followed the videos I received with the order and everything went really well. This dryer was a little different than the video, but the process was the same. The HE3 does require 4 drum rollers and I had only ordered 2. However, there was only one bad roller, so I installed both on the back of the drum. The two front rollers are pretty easy to get to if they go bad. The idler pulley was completely worn out with an 1/8 inch groove worn off to one side. PartSelect made this an easy project!

Dryer would not start.
With the help of YouTube, I was able to watch videos of how to disassemble and reassemble the dryer. I watched a video showing where the Thermal fuse and Thermostat was located as well as how to test them with a meter. I watched another video showing how to replace the drum belt, showing step by step instructions. Without YouTube it would have been a whole different story!

Drive pulley broke. Looked like clip holding it on broke and pulley was running crooked.Belt was squealing some a couple of weeks before it broke.
Removed top and back covers. Placed new pulley and retaining clip in place. I had to remove a couple of drum supports to put belt on. Probably didn't have to remove top.

The belt you sent was too short
I disassembled the dryer, replaced the pulley (which was noisy), and the belt.reassembled, only to find out that the drum would not turn freely. checked all my procedures and kept having the same problem. Finally after 3 frustrating hours, I took the back off and noticed that idler arm was tight against the motor shaft, because the too short belt didn't allow for the clearance needed. Had too take everything apart ,another hour, went and found one at our local repair shop, reinstalled everything , after another two hours runs fine. would appreciate a refund. And please check your part numbers in the future. Would hate to have someone else go through what i experienced.

Replace heating element and belt
Replaced heating element and went ahead and replaced the belt since the dryer was coming apart and belt taken off also. I used the parts select video and paused the video through each step to complete each step. There videos are great for this and as long as you pause and do each step per the video it is quite easy. I Highly recommend doing each step one at a time as I did not have a problem. Thanks for great repair videos.

Im replacing the belt on this Kenmore 90 series and i can see on the old belt the part # is stamped.....3387610 and maybe (435et) after that. apparently the new part number is ps11722115 and replaces that old belt/part #. i do notice in the description it says there are 3 grooves and 4 ribs, but i am counting 4 grooves and 5 total ribs on this old belt. i assume im counting correctly.....a rib on each edge and then 3 ribs inbetween, totalling 5. ...which of course makes 4 grooves total. am i missing something or as long as the new one has as many or less than the old one, it will seat just fine on the grooves/ribs of the motor shaft like its meant to, correct? maybe i just should go with what is matched up with what i entered and what was given as the new part # and replacement., although im without the dryer and want to try and get the correct parts the first time. also, for the same dryer model, the lint screen foam seal that is attached to the inside of the screen housing is ripped. the one on the blower motor cover is fine but the seal that should keep lint from getting out of the screen housing and into the cabinet and be blown directly out to vent pipe is the one i need. can i not just use the same exact foam strips that are used as weather stripping on a door as long as it compresses and is tight seal? unless its a special heat resistant foam or something, that alternative is ok, right? thanks , sorry so long.
For model number 96590120

Hello Gavin, thank you for your question. Yes, the correct belt that the manufacturer recommends for your specific appliance model is part number Drive Belt 661570V. I don't believe they count the first rib when giving description of the belt. Either way, per you model information this is the right belt and will work with your unit. The lint screen foam seal is part number Seal, Outlet Housing part number WP697813. This is a specific piece of foam material that is made specifically for dryers, and should be used for this repair. It is made of a heat resistant material. I hope this helps!

Hello Ken, thank you for your question. The video might have been shot with a different appliance, but the overall installation should be the same. This belt is used on multiple models and, visually speaking, might look different. Per your model, this part number Drive Belt 661570V is the exact replacement part. I hope this helps!

Our dryer turns on, heats up, and the motor hums. I ordered a new motor, idler pulley, and belt. After installing the new items, nothing happens when i push start. No motor humming or heat. What direction should i begin looking at?
For model number MED9700SB0

Hi Jeremy, Thank you for your question. If the dryer is not starting, you will need to check the internal bias thermostat, the electronic control board, the door switch, the high limit thermostat and the fuse. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

My dryer stopped running,we opened the top and front and found the belt was broken. If we just replace the belt can we be sure the dryer will run or do we have to check something else? Judi
For model number GEQ9800LW1
PartSelect logo
Hi Judi, Thank you for the question. I suggest checking the pulley on the motor and the Idler pulley. As long as there was no damage tot he pulleys when the belt broke you should be fine replacing just the belt.Hope this helps!

How do you replace a belt in a stack dryer, what is the felt like belt around the drum, mine appears to be shredding. Primary symptom, loud thumbing noise while drying but still works.
For model number WET3300SQ2

Hi Anne, Thank you for the question. The belt for your model number is PartSelect Number: PS11722115. The felt seal at the front and back of the drum is Part Number: PS970088 and this prevents the drum from rubbing. Here is a link to the video we have for installing the belt. Hope this helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whFYs7Tg9Uw
