metal rubbing sound at drum edge: found seal cut and idler bearing frozen
Getting the cabinet open is always fun. Prying the top open without breaking the clips. I took a small pry bar, covered the end with gray tape and found the the clips located on the front outer edges. You push in on the metal clips from the front and lift the top off the plastic alignment dowels. Remove the back, and two front panels. Removed the drum and vacuumed out everything (inspect). Remove old seal, idler pulley assembly from back of dryer (spring & bolt & note belt routing). Glue new felt seal on drum, slide on drive belt, bolt on new idler assembly & attach spring. Attach lower inner front panel screws. Flex out front panel and lower in the drum (make sure the felt seal lip is not folded over). Complete installing front panels. Slide belt towards center of drum (see old mark). Flex idler assembly and route drive belt. Hand spin drum to align belt. Plug in and run dryer briefly to confirm things run smoothly. Align lid clips and close. Unplug and attach back panel and vent hose. ALL DONE.

Squel with heavy load
Well before ordering parts. I removed back panel with screw gun to locate issue noise. The I applied a real quilty spray lube to the tensioner an spun it a few times. Then put dryer back together and ordered parts. I'm waiting for the noise to return before I actually make the repair. Old saying if it's not broke don't fix it.

Quick Boil burner would not stay heated and did not reach the required temperature.
The repair was easy. Shut off all power to the range, or unplug it. Remove the sheet metal back from the control panel using a nut driver or socket set. Pull the knob from the front of the control panel. Remove the two Phillips head screws that were hidden behind the knob. Pull the control switch out the back side of the control panel. Compare the old switch with the new one, to make absolutely sure you have the correct switch. Remove one wire at a time from the old switch and immediately install it in the exact same position on the new switch. When you have successfully transferred all of the wires from the old switch to the new switch, reinstall the new switch using the two Phillips screws. Reinstall the knob and the sheet metal cover. Plug the range back in, and/or turn the power back on. Trying boiling a pan of water to confirm that the repair resolved the issue.

I believe i have to change the pullie, my machine started to squeal. Do i need the arm or just the wheel. Also how hard will it be to change.
For model number WED8600YW0
PartSelect logo
Hi Thomas, Thank you for your inquiry. The pulley for your appliance is sold with the arm. There is a video on our website that you can reference on how to install the pulley. It may not show the exact pulley for your appliance, but it will give you a general idea on how to install it. You will find the video under part number. If they dryer is still noisy after installing the pulley, There are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the, drum support rollers, the belt and the drum support roller shafts. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

My dryer has a loud squealing noise when it is turned on. If I move the drum by hand it also squeals. I have found some references to this noise that it is probably the dryer idler pulley. Does it make sense that this is the problem?
For model number WGD8600YW0
PartSelect logo
Hello Phyllis, Thanks for your question. There are a few different parts you will want to examine, depending on where the noise is coming from First we would advise to check the blower belt and the drum belt to see if they are damaged or worn. Also examine the drum support rollers for signs of wear and tear. The idler pulley arm is also a common cause and should be checked for wear and tear - the drive belt is commonly replaced alongside the pulley. If all else fails, the drive motor could be the cause, but this is rarely the case. I hope this helps.

This part shows pulley attached to the arm. My dryer has a replaceable pulley. I ordered and installed a new belt and it appears the belt is now rubbing on the edge of the pulley arm and shredding. Any thoughts on what my issue may be?
For model number WED8200YW0
PartSelect logo
Hello Thomas, Thank you for the question. This sounds like the arm might be bent and not sitting level causing the belt to rub or the pulley will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Why does the idler pulley not have a bearing, and does not require lube or grease, per another person's question? A metal bushing on a metal shaft does not seem like the best solution. Do the new parts come with a bearing?
For model number MEDB200VQ1
PartSelect logo
Hi Carl, Thank you for the question. No the new parts do not come with a bearing. The manufacture (Whirlpool) did not design them to require a bearing to lube. Good luck with the repair!
