Generic Parts
« on: September 25, 2014, 11:39:36 AM »
Had dryer working on for used sales. Installed new generic maintenance kit 4392065. Squeaked like crazy took apart 3 times finally figured out the new belt tensioner was squeaking. If I spin it real fast with my hand could hear a slight squeak. Under tension was unbearable. That is why I stay clear of most generic parts.  :tickedoff:

I had the same exact problem. I took it all back to my parts house and they gave me the whirlpool one for the same price. It was an Exact Replacement Parts generic.

OEM parts not much more if more at all.   In the end,   Just charge customer a few bucks more for the better parts.     Why would I want to risk a callback.
