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.

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.

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

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!
