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.

After watching all the videos for repair, I removed the front door panel. Than located the slides and felt drum seal. All parts were very worn. All parts removed and replaced very easily. No more noise. Sensor working so much better.

First - I got help diagnosing the problem by typing in "Sqeaky Dryer" into YouTube - they have videos for so much in there, it is always where I start. The repair was simple - open the front door and remove the two screws just inside the door holding the front to the dryer top. Pull the top up and away. Remove two screws holding the front to the rest of the frame, but don't remove it. Just pull it out about 10 inches and let it lean out with either bailing wire or a straightened coat hanger. Unscrew the light bulb, remove the old drum with the slides, then put the drum back right the way it came out. Be sure to replace the slides whether it looks like they need it or not.

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. .
