Squealing drum

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.

I followed the directions from the previous post. It was much easier than described. I got the part, removed 4 screws, removed the top, pulled the front and replaced the part. It was all together again in 15 minutes. Dryer sounds great again! I'm so glad I didn't call a repair man!

No tools needed as old handle had come out on it's own when it broke. Simply removed duct tape that was used holding old one in place till new one arrived. Placed new one in position and snapped into place to hold. Less then a minute to install. Very pleased and surprised in how fast delivery of part from PartSelect was. Basically had it in 2 days. Will use them for other replacement parts as the need arises.

I love the Partsselect.com youtube videos. The man in those videos rocks!!! I did the repair of my rear drum bearing kit exactly as he showed me in his video and it was perfect. I have spread the word on facebook and around work about Partselect.com and friends and coworkers are already checking it out. Hey, everyone loves a good thing. I suggest that you do not be afraid, you CAN do it. Tear that baby apart and save yourself some money.

Broken drive belt electric dryer

  • Customer: brian from pittstown NJ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
Un plug the dryer. Gather phillip, flat head and torix screw drivers. Remove the rear of the dryer to get the spec sheet with the appropriate part number. Next called for part. Belt installation requires removal of front and top of dryer in order to slide belt over the drum. Getting to all the fastners requires tilting the dryer on its back. Clean out excess lint from dryer interior and duct work. Slide drive belt over drum and use some masking tape to hold it in position. Reassemble dyer. Return dryer to upright position and put the belt on the pully and tensioner from rear access port. Remove tape. Replace access panel. Reattach vent duct work. Plug in. There are 5-6 different size screws holding everything together...you may want to use masking tape to label where each type of screw goes. All totaled it took about an hour and cost less that $25. Well worth the effort.
