pulled off the top, pulled off the front then replaced the plastic that was supporting the front side of the drum. fairly easy to replace although the little plastic 'slides' (you need 4 of them)

Loud Banging, not drying.

First I got the front bearing, found out I needed the slides too. It was binding at first, so I undid an earlier misadjustment I made (on the back drum mount). and it works!

Loud banging

  • Customer: DUANE from Kutztown, PA

  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

When I first ordered the part, I did not know I needed 4 slides for the bearing. 2 of my slides had disintegrated. Make sure you have 2 good white slides, and 2 good blue slides, or order them with the bearing, or you will pay another $7.50 for shipping.
Once I got all of the parts and put it together using only common sense, I found it was binding tight. So I realigned the back of the drum that I had messed up while I was trying to diagnose the problem.
Parts Select definitely helped with diagnosis, through this comment section.
Thanks!

First I removed the front and top panel to the dryer. I then popped of the drum bearing, popped the new one on, added slides and put the top and sides back on. Turned on the dryer and it works just like new. All for less than a repair man would come out on a call for.

I was teaching my associate how to do this repair so I showed him how to take off the top of the dryer. Then I showed him how to replace the drum slides. I had him clean out the dryer since we had it apart, and I also showed him how to remove the drum and then reinstall it. This was a very easy repair, and he learned a lot that he otherwise would not have known. Thanks for getting the parts to me so quickly. Rob from Clarks Summit.

The door to the clothes dryer would not open without the handle. To be able to use the dryer I secured the handle in place with packaging tape. The Part Select website made it extremely easy to identify the replacement part using just the model number. I placed the order on Thursday afternoon and received the part on Friday morning. I had to twist the broken handle to remove it from the door. Then I was able to snap in the replacement handle back in place with little force. Thanks to Part Select my problem was easily rectified.

First with a screwdriver,I removed the two screws and lifting the top and the front panel of the dyer off. The worn parts were easily removed and the new parts just snapped into place. I then just put the front and top panels back on and the whole job took less than 20 minutes to complete. The next day I received a letter from GE that the warranty would expire and would I like to buy an extention. Thanks to PartsSelect I saved a lot doing it myself.

I took out a whooping four (4) screws, two that held down the top to the front panel then two screws that attached the side panels (at the top) to the front panel, raised the drum from the inside, leaned the front panel foreword, popped out the old slide (there was only one left), installed the four new slides & put it back together. That's pretty much all there was to it, vary simple.

I removed the 2 screws that held the top on. They are located inside the door on the upper lip. I then removed the 2 screws that held the front of the dryer in place. From there I leaned the front against my leg and the drum bearing just snapped off and the new one snapped into place. I replaced the front drum slides easily. They just slip into place. I put everything back together and it is now quiet. Very easy.

We are a retirement community and when we opened March '07 the company purchased GE washer and dryers to go in our common area laundry rooms for the residents to use. Because of their age, they will often turn the knob counter clockwise and not the right diirection which breaks the device which is not good. With in 3 days of installation they had broken 2 of the new knobs.
But, the ordering was simple, the shipment was fast and the install was quick for the maintenance tech.

turned switch to run but dryer wouldn't.

I removed the two screws inside the door and popped the top loose. I took the top off to see and have access to the interior. I leaned the front out and inserted the belt around the drum (with my wife's help), replaced the screws and laid the dryer on it's face on a rolled up blanket and proceeded to run the belt around the pulleys (two). The drive pulley was easy but the idler pulley, not so easy. I had to figure out how the pulley arm was supposed to provide tension on the belt. I figured it out by looking at the diagram. It was then I found the idler pulley was broken and fell apart in my hand. I advise that a new pulley be installed at the same time as the belt. Everything I read on your web site helped.
