Disconnected the power supply. Removed the two screws that attach the dryer top to the front door panel. Removed the two screws that secure the front door panel and carefully separated the door panel from the base without disconnecting electrical. Removed the old drum bearing from the door panel. Installed the 4 new drum slides on new bearing and installed new bearing on door panel. Removed lower front felt drum seal from door panel and carefully installed new felt drum seal. Re-installed the screws and connected the power supply and turned on the dryer. The dryer is as quiet as it was when new. The parts cost a total of $53.62 including shipping. I initially called a repair service who charged me $59.00 to diagnose the problem. The repair service wanted to charge an additional $240.00 ($130.00 for parts & $110.00 for labor) It pays do some research first. I will definitely be using PartSelect in the future.

Very squeaky dryer

My Dryer was squeaking like no ones business and eating our clothes. I did a little research and found the problem. The drum glides had worn out. So I order the set of 2 white and two grey. I was a expecting a 4-5 day wait, but to my SURPRISE got here the NEXT DAY. I found A helpful video from parts select on youtube and I had the driver apart in 5 minutes and ready to replace the Glides only to find the dryer drum had worn away the plastic on the top drum bearing. So I would suggest checking to make sure the Top drum bearing is still in good shape before you order the Glides. Order top drum bearing (got here next day) and did the install. It took about 10 minutes. ***Word of caution**** be careful with the Main power board(the ones with all the resisters and micro chips) I ended frying mine. Some how when putting the dryer back together I pulled a resister loose and did not know it. when I plugged it in I smelled something funny, sure enough fried the circuit board. I had to order a new one @ $100.00 + Buda Texas customer EASY INSTALL ALL THE WAY very please with partselect

GE Gas Dryer. Read your problem solutions very carefully. My machine was squeaking in the front area. It was the front bearing. Make sure you order the large front bearing and the 2 sets of small plastic bearings. Dryer now works great. Problem solved in about 1 hour. It would have taken less time but the dryer is ina really cramped place. Thanks you saved me $700. That is great for $47.00 worth of parts.

Removed dryer top panel, and front panel. Cleaned all lint buildup in vent system. Replaced lower felt seal, drum bearing, and 4 drum slides. Three of the old slides were gone. Unit runs like new. Very happy. Was already shopping for new appliances, when I found your website.

I went online for instructions and replaced the worn parts. My son-in-law had already tried a new belt, which did not work because of the wear on the bearing and slides. I found the web site to be very helpful because I had not seen the dryer prior to disassembly by my son-in-law. The old slides were worn so much that the drum was wearing a hole in the bearing. I advise replacing the slides when the dryer begins to make a squeaking noise and not wait for the bearing to start to wear.

Googled possible problem where noise was coming from. Went to Parts Select web site. Ordered felt and drum bracket. Removed screws behind control knobs and removed top of dryer. Removed two screws on front inside dryer (left/right side) this allowed me to remove front panel of dryer. Unattached wires. Drum bracket is located above door opening...pretty much snaps out, felt piece is located on bottom bracket. Felt piece was replaced and new top bracket replaced. Reattach wires, lift drum slightly to fit doo iInto place. Dryer still made noise. Noticed I did not have any drum slides! Drum slides slide into top of front bracket at 10/2 o'clock position and 11/1o'clock. Easy and very inexpensive dryer repair!! My husband was very impressed that I could take dryer apart and fix!!!

I followed the directions found here for installation of the felt drum seal. Look at the video supplied, because even if your dryer isn't the exact same model it is still very useful! I then read a few of the others comments for installing the Drum Bearing. Top hints for this model: 1)REMOVE the screws found at the top, inside, door frame. The top of the dryer box WILL NOT COME OFF IF YOU DON'T. 2)The electric wiring going from inside the machine to the door switch DOES NOT COME LOOSE. Be carefull and be ready to securely prop up the front door panel while you make your repairs. MY ADDITIONAL NOTES: 1)The Lower Front Felt Drum Seal appears to be too short when you try to place it into the groove. Apparently, this is not a problem due to the direction in which the drum turns, so only locking it in on the right side, like in the video (as you look at it when door is removed) will work. This was never explained and I may have to replace the felt sooner than normal... 2) PREVENT A DRYER FIRE: Have your vacuum ready to really clean out all the lint and dust accumulated inside the vent and box interior!
