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.

Constant squealing noise

Unplug the dryer from the wall. I took the door off by removing the 4 screws that held it on. Removed the 2 screws in the top of the door frame to allow the top to come off. The top lifted off and slid to the left about an inch to release it from the panel. There are 2 screws in the cabinet on the top left and right. Remove these and the front panel will pop off. You can disconnect the closed door switch if you want to but not needed to complete the job. The worn drum bearing pops out with a little force. Attatch the new glides to the new drum bearing. Your old bearing may have only had 2 glides, mine did. I installed 4 as there are slots for 4 glides. Remove the punch-out disk at the top of the bearing. Starting with the bottom, snap the new bearing into place. Remove the old felt. I started at the middle of the lower drum bearing using the middle of the felt and pushed it into the slot provided. Making sure the drum is positioned correctly in the bearing, close the front panel and reinstall the screws. Putting the top on requires a little finesse, just work with it and it'll work for you. Reinstall the screws in the top of the door frame to the top panel. Reinstall door. Plug in and test. It may make a rubbing noice but this should go away after use and the glides get worn in.

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.

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.

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.

I took off the dryer top and saw it was the slides went on line found PartsSelect, found my dryer, ordered the parts and had them within two days and it took me about 15 minutes to fix the dryer which will add about 3-4 years more life on it. Thank You PartsSelect My wife is even happier

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.
