For Whirlpool Dryer Drum Belt (Part Number: AP2911808)

Answer or Comment

View all Questions

The dryer has a clanging noise just underneath the top near the front as it is running. Per the other questions, sounds like it must be the rollers or the dryer wheel. However, my husband needs an instruction manual or on line instructions about taking the dryer apart so he can determine the part needed. Please let us know where we could find this information. Thank you so much! Any other suggestions about this problem would also be appreciated.
