Terrible squeaking from the front side of the dryer.

I did not know anything about fixing a dryer beforehand but the Parts Select video was extremely helpful. It matched exactly what I needed to do, from showing me which screws I needed to remove to get inside the dryer to replacing the part. I simply removed the front drum bearing, replaced all four slides (gray and white), and snapped it all back in. It took me less than 30 minutes and probably saved me $100 in repair costs.

Dryer squealed when it ran

I watched the video on PartSelect.com on how to change out the Front Drum Bearing and where and how the Drum Bearing Slides were installed and then I got a Phillips Screw Driver and a pair of Needle Nose Pliers. The first thing I did was unplug the dryer. I unscrewed the two screws located at the top corners of the door opening that fastened the top of the dryer and then removed the top and set it aside. While I had the top off I took the opportunity to note the condition of the Drum Belt in case it also needed to be replaced. The drum belt appeared to be in good shape so I removed the two screws that fastened the front of the dryer, pulled the front of the dryer forward letting the drum fall slightly off of the Front Drum Bearing, and then disconnecting the door switch wires making sure I wrote down where each of the three wires attached to the wire harness on the front panel of the dryer went. I pulled the front panel off and the first thing I noticed was that all four of the Drum Bearing Slides were GONE as were the brackets on the Front Drum Bearing that held them. There were a couple piles of grey dust on the front panel which were the remains of a couple of the Drum Bearing Slides. I unscrewed the light bulb and just pulled the Front Drum Bearing off and discarded it. The new Front Drum Bearing snapped easily into place and I installed the Drum Bearing Slides, of which there are TWO types, into their proper brackets. I cleaned out the lint from the exhaust vent on the bottom of the front panel as well as the hardened lint from around the fan on the bottom of the dryer where the exhaust vent on the front panel attached before I plugged the three door switch wires back in their proper locations on the front panel wire harness and, making sure the drum rested on the Front Drum Bearing, reattached the front panel and screwed the fastening screws back into place. Then I reattached the top, which took a few minutes and some colorful metaphors because anyone who has ever done any kind of repair knows that the mechanism you are trying to repair never wants to go back together. After getting the dryer top where it was supposed to go I screwed the fastening screws back into place. Before I plugged the dryer in to test it I took the opportunity to remove and completely clean out the dryer exhaust vent pipe from inside the pipe that comes out of the dryer all the way to where the vent exhausts to the outside. You wouldn't believe how much lint hardens on the insides of the exhaust vent pipe. I reattached everything, plugged in the dryer, and turned it on. The dryer was as quiet as it was when I first bought it.

The only tool used was a phillips head screwdriver. I removed two screws to lift the lid and two more screws to free the front panel, slid off the front panel, and had direct access to all 4 slides, replaced, reassembled, and good as new.

I removed screws from control panel, and removed screws holding dryer door panel. I removed the worn front drum bearing, and replaced it with the new bearing (after snapping in the new drum bearing slides. I then properly re-positioned the front panel, and secured the two panels with the appliance screws.

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.

Very easy to remove the front and top with a total of 4 screws as per the video. Removing the old piece was easy. The only hang up was putting the new piece on and it wasn't fitting snug. I then realized there was a lip that should sit around the dryer door open. Once I did that it fit perfect and was a matter of putting the screws back.
