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.

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.

The parts arrived the next day after ordering. While I was at work my wife surprised me and made the repairs. She said she just followed the part select installation videos and an hour later it was all done. Runs like brand new! Saved a load of cash. Thanks, Jerry and Tammy

1) Disconnect power supply. 2) Open dryer door to find and remove two screws through dryer top. 3) Proceed to lift front dryer top panel and tap rear of dryer top with hand to left to disengage tabs and remove dryer top completely. 4) Remove two screws through front panel. 5) Gently lift dryer front panel from base tabs to partial remove panel (careful of wires which remain connected) - pivot front panel to left with wires connected. 6) lift dryer barrel with left hand / reach under barrel with right hand to release belt from tensioner pulley (very easy one-hand maneuver). pull dryer barrel belt off tensioner pulley towards you, remove belt from motor pulley below. 7) lift/pull and remove dryer barrel and belt (flex side panels). 8) take picture of wire connection locations on heating element and remove wires from tabs two locations / 3 wires. 9) remove sensors 3 locations. 10) remove heating element and housing. 11) install new heating element / housing and reverse process. .....tip; belt tensioner pulley was biggest challenge at first because it was hard to see how it all worked and reach. once i realized i could force / lift the barrel up to gain better access it was much easier than trying to fit my arm through the one large available hole at bottom right (when looking at the unit). the tensioner pulley is opposite side (left when facing) and you would have to reach over the exhaust, etc.

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.
