Simply popped the old broken part out and popped the new part into place. I wasn't sure if it was the Latch Door or the Door Strike. Once the parts arrived, it was clear the Door Strike was not the issue.

Hight pitch squeal in forward middle top section of dryer

Determined problem by reading other reviews. Parts came quick. Shipping confirmation contained installation video. Excellent idea. Followed installation instructions. I used care manipulating the plastic shield that protects the wiring during disconnect for front section removal. (old plastic is brittle) With front removed it's good opportunity to vacuum out everything that can't normally be reached. Installed Drum bearing and slides and reassembled front and top. Test run is quiet. Old parts were badly worn.

Squeaking coming from front drum bearing of the dryer.

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.

It was no big deal I just replaced the used parts with the new ones. I just needed help knowing were the white and black bearings went.I went to the web site and got the information I needed. I didnt think I would be able to find parts for a machine as old as ours. Saved us big bucks.

I watch the videos, your company told me to go to on the internet when I received the parts. I could not believe how easy it was to change the parts' The videos make the job as easy as the video showed it to be. Your videos and parts are the best. Thank You Greg

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.

It took longer to watch all 3 instruction videos than it took to actually complete the repair. Great instructions for an amateur do-it-yourselfer. Made my wife love me again!

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 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.
