This is the 2nd time in 3 years I had to do this repair. There needs to be a better design. I suggest that when you hear squeeking that you replace the teflon pcs fast so you don't have to replace the drum bearing.
Now for the repair. Take dryer door off (4 screws) it makes the repair easier. There is 2 long screws that hold the top to the front of the dryer. Once removed you can pull out the top of the front of dryer and it unhooks from the bottom. I suggest using the vacuum and clean thoroughly while you have it apart. Unplug the wire for the light (3 wires) so you can completely remove the front of the dryer. The drum bearing snaps out (after you remove the light bulb). Insert 4 new teflon pcs into new drum bearing before re-attaching to dryer. Plug the wires back in and put the light bulb back in. Hook the bottom to the dryer and make sure bearing goes areound drum when putting back on. Put 2 long screws back in to attach the top to the front. Re-attach door and your job is done. You should not have to disconnect dryer from gas but you should unplug dryer. This is a very easy repair. I don't know why they call this part a drum bearing when there is no bearings involved at all.
