Open up top and front and inspect the front drum bearing before ordering. If the drum has worn through the slides it may have worn into the plastic bearing which will have to be replaced to properly hold the new slides, as mine did. Unplug the dryer!!! Remove the five screws in the back of the control panel and push it gently to the right to free it. Just let it float. This will allow the top to lift in the next step. Remove the two screws in the top of the door opening and lift the top off and set it aside. Remove the two inner screws holding the front to the sides and let the front lean out against your legs. Inspect the four slides and bearing. To replace the bearing pry out from the front's metal and lift up and out. The slides slip easily into the bearing. For renewed efficiency replace the lower felt drum seal, remove the debris from the now open air discharge at the front bottom left and polish the front riding surface and edge of the metal drum with a green scouring pad. Lift the drum up to slip over the bearing as you close the front. Replace the two inner screws. Replace the top and slip the control panel back into position. Replace the door opening and back control panel screws.

The dryer was squealing periodically during operation

The repair was incredibly easy. The repair video that accompanied the order confirmation was dead on. The only tool that was needed was a screwdriver. The repair took only 15-20 minutes. Removing the front hood came out in two screws. Once the two interior screws were removed from under the hood the front panel came out with ease. The Front Drum bearing was removed with a little pressure to pop it out from the panel. The new slides go in very easily and the new front drum bearing popped back into the front panel and re-assembly. Success! The machine no longer made that awful squealing sound and the boss (aka wife) was happy.

Followed the video on this site but did not have to remove wires. Just stand in front and let the front panel rest on your leg while you replace the slides. Quick and Easy!!!!

Worn Front Drum Bearing and Completely Worn Out Slides

I took out two screws inside the dryer door, then two more screws after pulling the top of the dryer free. After that I ran into a problem which was the drum was stuck to the dryer door. This was unexpected since I had the dryer apart a couple of times before diagnosing my problem. I couldn't get the drum free on the bottom, lost patience and pulled hard which bent the edge of the drum. I still don't know what was catching, but now my drum is bent and I'm not willing to replace the drum so a new dryer will be in order within a few months.Surprisingly after installing the new Front Bearing and the Slides, which are a breeze the dryer works pretty well. I still think the bent drum will take a toll eventually. My advise is don't get impatient and do what I did! If it's not coming apart right or going back together right take your time and Don't force it. If you do, be prepared to buy a new dryer like I'm going to have to do now.

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.

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.

Squeaking noise coming from front of the dryer

  • Customer: John from Overland Park KS
  • Difficulty: Easy

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.

Plastic melted onto diffuser, requiring replacement

My son ordered the part, but gave up installing it. We called in a professional appliance repairman because the dryer had to be partially dismantled to remove the drum and a belt so three sets of holes could be aligned to secure the replacement diffuser. My daughter had to lend a hand to hold one piece in place while the repairman threaded the screws because the drum was too deep for him to be able to reach both front and back pieces. Definitely not a one-person job for this particular model.

Continuous loud squeaking

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Safety first, unplug it. Open dryer door and remove 2 screws that secure the top of the dryer to the frame. Pull top toward you while lifting to remove the top. Remove 2 screws from inside the dryer that secure the front of the dryer to the frame. The screws are near the top and the heads are pointed toward the back of the dryer. At this point, I just opened the entire front of the dryer like a door and rested it against the wall. There are wires attached to the front, but I pivoted the front so I didn't need to disconnect the wires. The drum bearing snaps into place and it was a little tricky removing it. Same goes for the lower duct. Once the lower duct and front bearing were off, I removed the old seals and gaskets, cleaned the parts I was reusing, and installed the new gaskets and seals. I vacuumed all the dust and lint out of the inside of the dryer and reassembled in the reverse order. The front and top need to be wiggled to get them seated properly before replacing the screws.
