I have the dryer apart. I am trying to figure out if I am going to get electrocuted. I don't know how hard I can vacuum it - you can see? maybe - I'm not sure if it's attached or not - how severe the dust is. OH - and should I lubricate anything before I put it back together?

Dryer should be unplugged from the wall before you even turn the first screw to disassemble.

Fail to comply and you will fry!

Have a nice day.

I'm way way past that. It's out in the foyer :smile:

Had to have operating room.

Now I have an URGENT question. I broke one of the Cardinal rules. On the thermostat. Is the Yellow wire on the TOP or the BOTTOM when it is plugged in?

Nice pic - can you post one of the thermostat in question?
If it's a thermal disc it shouldn't matter (see if the terminals are labelled c-nc)

I don't see that it's labeled anything.

Here's the service manual. It's part number K560.

Should I lubricate any of the drum wheels before i put it back together? Or are they sealed bearings and I shouldn't bother? They look a little rusted around there.

A drop of Slick 50?

ummm- no - it's just a big white plug going into the back of it - with two wires coming out of it, one white, one yellow.

if you're asking, "does it make a difference which way the plug goes onto the thermostat pictured"
the answer is "no".

Ok, just to make sure we're all on the same page. I'd hate to have to take this all apart again.

I guess I was just over tired by this point. I always take pictures along the way. The minute I unplugged this I knew I had made a major major mistake because I did not document it. It was the last step.

(this is after I have re-installed everything)

Well.;That wasn't it. Now what?

It's still stuck in that same place when I first started.

If you just push the ON Button it says CHECK FILTER.All the other Buttons go to Default time and you can't operate them. Heavy Duty is 54, Cotton Towels is 55 etc.

No, when I first started posting it was on it's way out. I ran one load of clothes and it quit permanently.

Took it apart, replaced the Thermistor and Thermostat, vacuumed everything out. Took the little Air compressor to it and blew what I couldn't vacuum out (the motor mostly). Then since I saw some dust up in the Heater element and the Air compressor couldn't blow it out I took that apart and cleaned that out. I did see some burnt dust up in there, so I was glad I did that.

I do have to agree to the 2 Wrench rating. I was a lot easier than it looked at first.

I'm not sure if I have the belt on right though :(

Whole belt goes under the idler and then streched over the motor pulley - what is the symptom now ?

It's still stuck in that same place when I first started. Well, second place. First place was it was running and then it quit. Now it is still in the Quit place.
