I have encountered this problem in the past. Over time, the front plastic drum bearing and the 4 front glide tabs wear down, requiring replacement. To start this repair, unplug the dryer and open the door. Remove the 2 philips screws under (top) of the open door frame that secure the top panel. Remove top panel by lifting up and pulling towards you. Remove the two philips screws (left and right) at the top inside front panel. Support the front panel and "swing" it gently to the left like opening a door, using caution not to damage the wires to the light at the bottom of the panel. Take this opportunity to vacuum out all the accumulated lint around the frames, drum, and vents to prevent any dryer fires. Remove the light bulb. Remove the damaged bearing by separating at the snap points. Save any old glides that are still serviceable. Install glides on the new bearing and punch out the plastic disc to uncover the light bulb hole. Install the new bearing, snapping securely into place, and making sure all wires and felts are secure and away from the drum movement area. Replace the bulb. Replace the front panel in a reverse motion, seating the bottom edges first (a second pair of hands is helpful here), then seating the drum onto the bearing and glides. Replace front panel screws. Replace top panel, fitting the tabs near the control panel first, then swinging down and in, using caution not to damage the control panel. Replace door frame screws to secure top panel. Plug in and test run, being sure to allow adequate time for the burner to light.

Looked up the problem and solution on the web and,ah-ha, drum slides should be the cure. Easy to install, . Back to the internet to discover that after the slides, the bearing and felt liner were the next likely culprits. Again easy install, but to no avail. Calling in the pros.

Loud squeaking noise

Order and repair went fine. Just followed installation instructions already posted. However, after the repair it would overheat and shut off. Tested thermostats and they were good. Forums repeatedly talked about air flow problems but I knew it was clean. Ended up putting foam weather stripping on inside of front panel where it meets duct of squirrel fan and that fixed it.

Front bearing and slides worn

First looked up on Google how to correct the squeak. Almost got into an internet trap by a you tube video looking to seel the slides for $20.00 (white) & $24.00 (green) each but luckily found your website. I originally ordered just the slides (first order) then aferwards ordered everything. Replacement parts fit right in without any struggle.

While cleaning dryer for low exhaust discharge pressure, I observed one slide (green) 98% worn down, the other three 90 to 95% worn and felt drum seal broke in half.

Opening the dryer door and removed the two screws located at the top of the opening. Pop off top lid of dryer by lifting up on front, and slide forward. I needed to break it loose by prying it up with a screw driver (use light pressure, be careful not to bend/scrape top), as it was first time every being removed. Remove two screws at top of front panel, hold up drum, and pull front panel forward. Unplug electrical cable to door, and removed front panel. Removed and replaced all four slides (2 Green slides & 2 Clear slides). Removed felt drum seal and replaced by lightly pushing in slots (couple of very light pushes using a screw driver was also needed). Placed front panel back on slots at bottom of dryer (REMEBER TO PLUG IN DOOR SWITCH), lifting (lightly) up on drum, and push in place, replaced all parts in reverse order. Top was a little tricky getting back on, but with a little push it snapped in place. Plugged in dryer performed test run everything worked perfect. Thanks to PartsSelect for their quick response to my order, you are definitely on my favorites listing for any future repairs and/or help.

UNPLUG DRYER FIRST.Open dryer door find 2 screws at top of dryer door opening ( pointing upward). Remove screws and pop top panel of dryer up and remove it. Remove 2 screws near top of front panel (on the inside facing toward you). Careful not to drop them down into dryer interior. Pop front panel with door attached forward by tilting toward you. then lift off bottom tabs and turn panel / door assembly to the side. Careful not to pull wires at bottom loose. Carefully pop "Drum Bearing" off. This is the half moon shaped part that the "Drum Slides" (2) clear and(2) "green" pop on to. Replace drum bearing. Put new slides (4) on drum bearing. Replace felt seal. Place front panel back on dryer by carefully lifing dryer drum up while pushing front panel onto dryer. This allows the drum to "sit" on the felt seal. Put screws back onto top of front panel. Replace top panel , which can be tricky, by aligning tabs near contol panel with slots on top panel then lowering front of top panel into place. Then put screws back near top of door opening to secure top panel. Test dryer by turning off the heat on the heat setting knob and allow dryer to run for a time. Then try it with some clothes and heat. If it is still making noise then check rear bearing/bushing. Mine was fine and this repair fixed the issue. By the way, all but one of my 4 slides were worn to nothing and the drum had been "eating" into the "drum bearing making it paper thin in several areas. The felt was worn out also. This allowed the drum to settle down and gap at top which allowed clothes and dryer sheets to get caught between drum and dryer cabinet.

Replace rear bearing, drive belt, front drum slides.

This was very easy. The utility room is just off the kitchen. I had your repair video running on my laptop on the kitchen island and started at ~8am last Saturday. A very fun project, because all the guesswork has been eliminated by watching your repair video for a few moments, hitting pause, then doing exactly what was explained on the video. I took the time to vacuum out every piece of lint, then carefully reassembled the dryer. One bit of advice- - if you need to disconnect any wires, mark them with a Sharpie pen: one dot on both the wire and the spot you pulled it from, two dots for the second wire, etc. At reassembly time, it's a snap. Also, as you remove screws, keep a few sandwich bags handy so you can group screws together. Have fun!

Took the top of the dryer off by removing two philips screws in front. Removed two screws holding the front of the dryer on. Pulled the front out enough to reveal the worn drum slides. Replaced them. Reassembled.
