The drum won’t stop turning when the cycle is complete. We have to kill the power to the dryer to get it to stop. What part do i need to order, and can you provide any instruction to replace it?
For model number DLEX5170W

Hello Kim, thank you for your question. This would be an issue with either the motor or the control board, I believe. The board is Part #: PS7792469 and the motor is PartSelect Number: PS3523290. We apologize, but we do not currently have installation instructions for these particular parts. I hope this helps.

Dryer operates fine, once cycle is selected. Cycle selection is the issue. The knob turns, but selector does not change. I have to push in/pull out while turning and eventually it will move 1 cycle. Please advise of the part to order. Thank you.

Hi Jeff, thank you for reaching out. We would recommend checking the selector knob for any damage first. If it is fine, the issue is most probably with the display control board, part number PS7792492. It processes the cycle settings you choose. You may need to replace it to fix the issue. We hope that helps!

Dryer would run with no heat
I actually went to mr fix it on u tube. Great instruction on how to take dryer apart. First I unplugged the dryer. I found I could reach the heating system by removing the lint tube in the back of the dryer. I put my I phone with the light on inside the back of the dryer and tested the connections to see if all were working. The thermal fuse was not working. I removed the two wires , red on top and white on the bottom. Then used a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the two mounting screws and removed the fuse. I then used a vacuum to clear any lint from the back of the dryer and inside the dryer. This took me about an hour and a half. I did it this way because I did not want to disassemble the entire dryer to get to the components. I received the fuse in 3 days and tested it. It was fine. I then put it in the dryer screwed it in place, connected the wires. Replaced the lint tube. This took about 10 minutes. Dryer is running great.

Screeching during operation
Found disassembly video and watched several times. Suspected that one of the drum wheels had seized up. Found extreme volume of lint and hair inside unit as well as a dryer sheet melted on top of heating unit. Front left drum wheel was worn down from lint and hair jamming its movement. Video made it easy, not a really complicated piece of machinery. Replaced all 4 wheels due to normal wear on other three. Wanted to be sure drum evenly balanced on all 4. Parts came quickly and were easy to install. My sister and I did this together. Would not recommend doing it alone. Took time to vac and wipe down entire unit. Now it runs so quiet we have to look to see if it is operating. Got a brand new machine out of it, saved a couple of hundred dollars in repair bills, and found 11 cents inside the machine. For your own piece of mind, if you have had your dryer for several years, you need to open it up and clean it out. Its not hard... added note, we are both in our 60's... so if we can do it so can you.... Such a feeling of accomplishment, can't buy that in a store....
