Hi Ed, Thank you for your question. If your dryer makes a squeaking noise when you have a heavy load, 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 bearing slides, the rear drum bearing, the idler pulley and the drive motor and pulley. We hope this helps! Good luck with the repair!

Does a stem come with the dryer knob to dry clothes the setting I was using pliers to turn that little knob and that came off as well like the rubber piece came out and I don't know if the knob would fit in without having that
For model number GTDP490ED2WS
PartSelect logo
Hello Rhonda, thank you for reaching out. The timer, part number PS3654187, and the knob, part number PS8769914, will need to be replaced. The shaft that protrudes from the back of the panel is part of the timer assembly and is not sold or made separate from the timer switch. Good luck with the repair!

Drum belt broke
Removed the front Dryer panel. Left drum in place and lifted it up slightly to get access to motor drive. Slipped belt in place and put panel back on.
This was a first attempt ever at fixing an appliance and it was no big deal.

original duct was broken
Dear PartSelect.com,

My repair went off without a hitch.

2 screws removed to remove top.
4 screws removed from inside to remove front panel w/ door.
4 screws removed from top of control panel, loosed and popped top right off.
Flathead screwdriver to pop off old plastic panel.
Removed old wire chase (plastic, approx 3” long).
Removed built-up lint, wiped down area for new duct.
Snapped new duct on.
Dryer works like new!!
Took about 35 minutes, most of time spent cleaning up inside of dryer from lint due to broken duct.

One problem was that salesperson sold me on a new felt strip to go with new duct. That felt comes already installed on the new duct so I did not need it. Cost me a few extra dollars I did not need to spend.

Other than that, easy ordering, fast shipment, and parts are as close to original as possible.

Thanks for all your help!

Dryer would get very hot and then turn off
It was actually my father, he doesn't use the internet. He thought that because the dyer got real hot and then shut off he thought the thermostat wasn't working and the high temp shutoff was okay. He went through the manual and found the part and took it out. He called the service number but they wanted $50 dollars plus shipping. I saw it was a Thermo-disc part so I tried the manufacture's website but I couldn't match the numbers on the back to their part numbers. I tried several other sites and your site was the cheapest. It was real easy to use the web site and diagrams to find the right schematic and part. I ordered it online and it was delivered in 2 days with the regular shipping. When he first put it in the dyer didn't turn on. He found no power coming out of the timer so he cleaned the contacts and it worked. Thanks for making the ordering so easy.
