Dryer drum squeaking when running

The instructions from everyone was spot on! Take the 2 screws out that hold the top on. Open the door and the screws are right inside. Lift the top and slide the top to the left to release it from the back control panel. Then on each side, there are 2 screws that hold the front panel on. Take them out and lift the front off of the bottom pins and swing the front out to the left. Keeping in mind the wires on the bottom left side. The Drum Bearing will pop right out. Install the new slides and pop the new one back in. To install the front back on, hold the drum up and set the front back onto the pins on the bottom. Install the 2 screws that hold the front on. Slide the top back onto the guides in the back and install the 2 screws. It takes longer to clean out the lint and open the packages than to install the parts.

Followed the online video & it was very easy to do ! We initially called a repair person who told us it would cost $150-$200 to fix , but he could sell us a used one he had that was newer for less !! My wife got on the internet & found the site and video to order parts & do it yourself which was really easy and cost about %45,00 to do !!!

This is the 2nd time I replaced the drum bearing in the past 2 years on my 16 year old GE dryer. I found the parts needed by the diagram and followed the how to video which was very helpful and easy to follow. My parts came in 3 days and I hope to get another few years out of my dryer.

Loud squeak like nails on a chalkboard.

The video was a great help, but when working on my general electric I removed the control panel screws and lifted the panel and the top and made it very easy then trying to get the top off without moving the control panel. Also, on general electric dryers covering the wires was a lint guard but using needle nose pilers going through the guard holes you can pull off and reattach the wires then using fingers. My repair time took longer then what was posted by others, I took time to clean all the lint ducts on the machine before putting it back together. Runs smoother, drys in less time, and the noise is down to a steady quiet hum.

watched the Video on PartSelect.com Before I did the repair. . ordered the parts that where suggested.. Once the parts arrived to my home I again watched the repair video and proceeded to do the dryer repair with ease! I replaced the Drum Bearing slide, Front Drum Bearing and the Drum Bearing Slide.. It was a very easy repair to do and saved me a lot of money by doing it myself! The Video that showed how to do the repair was very helpful as well. .

The clothes would get caught where the drum slide should be (it was almost totally worn down) and would leave black marks. I watched Parts Select youtube video. Bought the parts needed from Parts Select. They arrived within a couple of days. I replaced the 2 drum slides and no more getting caught. Took about 20 minutes.

first, I watched the helpful videos. I then removed the screws that are located inside the door and screws from for top panel to remove front and top panel. When I opened the front panel I saw that the front drum bearing was half destroyed from the years of drum rubbing. I Replace front drum bearing and slides and now dryer sounds like a brand new quiet dryer.

Excessive noise while dryer drum rotating

The Felt Drum Seal actually fell apart and got pulled into the area between the drum and the front drum bearing. I pulled out the seal, looked at ps.com's schematics, and ordered the drum seal and the 4 bearing slides. I figured I might as well replace the slides while the top and front of the dryer were off. Previous postings and the video were very helpful. I did take off the dryer door (remove 2 screws and loosen 2 screws to take it off) to make it easier to remove the dryer front. Do watch the wires to the door switch and the light: gently move the dryer front just far enough from the dryer to get behind it. Install felt seal and make sure it is completely in the guides with flat side against the dryer front. Install bearing slides exactly the same way as the old ones: they just clip into place. Have a brush or vacuum handy to clean the channel from the dryer lint trap. Mine was full of lint. You will have to reach in and raise the dryer drum slightly to put it back on top of the front bearing as you reinstall the dryer front. Very easy repair for anyone with a small amount of mechanical ability. I estimate I saved the cost of a $150 service call ($75 to show up and minimum 1-hour of labor at $75 in my area). Thanks parts.com!

Dryer would shut off after 5 - 8 minutes and making rubbing noise.
