I took the lower back panel off. Loosened the center bolt and took off the old Idler pulley. It looked brown in the middle and didn't roll well. But I wasn't sure if that was it, because the noise was so loud and sounded metal on metal. So I checked everything and vacuumed everything. After I got the new part it took me about 5 minutes to put the new one on. And dryer works fine. Thanks for the quick response and I saved about $200.00!

I unplugged the dryer from the power outlet and removed two screws from the back of the top cover and removed the cover. Then I laid the dryer down on its back for easy access to the screws on the bottom of the front side. I then removed two screws from the front bottom cover to clear the way for two more screws for the front main panel and door. Then I removed those two screws that attach the front panel and door to the dryer from the bottom of the dryer front. I then stood the dryer back up on its 4 pegs. I removed the top 4 screws connecting the control panel to the cross bar on top. Then I removed the two screws from inside the dryer accessing them from the top of the dryer, holding the front panel. With little and gentle force I pulled the front panel and door from the dryer housing, making sure not to loose the 4 snaps that come off with it. I removed two screws from the access panel to get access to the pulley in the lower back of the dryer. I loosened the tensioner by pushing it to the side and pulled the belt off the pulley. Next I needed to remove the drum which is connected by three screws in the center of the inside of the drum to a small plate on the outside that is attached to a ball that goes into a grease box. I then wiggled the drum out of the dryer. With some force I pushed the plate upwards to disengage it from the grease box and removed it. I unplugged the electrical wires connected to the thermostat and element. I then removed 4 screws from the back of the dryer that hold the heating element housing and removed the housing. I replaced the heating element and housing and the belt and put the dryer back in reverse order.

I finally found this great website that not only had the part, but directions on how to do the work. The part came to my house in about 4 days. After 9 years of being broken, it is refreshing to have it fixed. I have bookmarked this site for ANY future repairs.

i watched the video that is furnished at parts select, it was very useful in doing this repair. i would strongly recommend watching this as i did install the ground bearing wrong to start with,and restringing the drum belt is something you have to feel as your installing it back in place so the video is useful for that as well. my repair was on a front load dryer made by Frigidaire,

I followed instructions I found on u-tube to remove the drum and belt and access the bad bearing and change it. The instructions were quite good other than needing to remove a small panel on the back of the dryer to pull the belt around the tensioner.

Dryer made extremely loud rhythmic screeching sound when running.

DIsassembled the dryer by removing the top piece first. Removed the kick panel and the two screws on the bottom of the front panel. Disconnect the 2 wiring harnesses then remove the remaining 6 screws that you can see from the top. If possible, have someone support the front panel as you undo the last couple screws. Remove the plate on the rear lower right side to expose the pulley and belt. Pull on the tensioner while gently pulling the belt off the pulley and tensioner. Lift the drum up quick and hard to separate the ball shaft from the bearing holder. Remove drum by taking it out through the front opening. Replace the ball shaft on the back of the drum. This is much easier if you have an extra set of hands. At this point, vacuum out as much lint as you can. There is a white container attached to the front panel, vacuum this too. THere was several inches of lint build up that had made it past the screen. Replace the bearing, ball retainer, and ball bearing on the dryer. Grease the ball and retainer and reinstall the drum. SInce I was replacing the bearing, I went ahead and replaced the belt too. Reposition the belt on the pulley and tensioner. Spin it a little to make it is on the right place. Reassemble the dryer. This is the first time that I have done a repair of this sort and it turned out to be a lot easier than I thought. Two people would have made it even easier and faster.

Unplugged dryer power. Pry up the upper cover using a puttyknife along the front left an right corners. Lift cover up and out of the way. Removed the front panel by removing two philips screws, located inside the drum area and pry panel away from unit. Besure to unplug the wires to the door switch before removing the front panel. Know the Drum is exposed. Undo the drum drive belt by reaching in under the drum and pushing the spring loaded idler pulley to the left and remove the belt from the drive motor shaft. Lift the drum straight up, this removes the drum from the rear support bearging. slide the drum out of the unit. Remove rear drum support bearing. and install new brg., being careful not to loose the small ball brearing (thrust Brg.), this proceedure requires two people. Lubricate the support Brg. with a HIGH temp grease. Place new belt on drum and install drum and drive belt reversing the proceedure. Remove old Drum glide and sand paper the old adhesive. Apply adhesive provided liberally to both surfaces, allow adhesive to cure for 10 to 15 min. Allign Drum glide and press and hold in place. Allow adhesive to dry for 2-3 hrs. before installing front panel. Install panel, plugin door wiring close cover. Your Back In Business.....
