PartSelect already has a good video explaining how to replace the bearing. The only thing that I would have liked information on is whether or not to add grease. It did not appear, on any of the PartSelect videos, that any grease was added. I read where some people recommended lithium or other types of high temperature grease. I knew better than to use automotive/petroleum based grease. I elected to use a small amount of lithium grease. Addressing whether or not to use grease would be a nice addition to your video.

By hand, pull old out, put new in. I did not ask the question when I purchased the part so it arrived in a white color when my dryer is an almond color. I think the part store should expose colors to the next customer. Great job and very fast deliver.

After removing 14 million screws, finally got smart and looked on the internet to see how to open it up. It's super easy when you do it right! Ordered parts. Woman at PartSelect was patient and very helpful. My 15-yo son actually fixed it before I got home from work. His only question was where the green vs. white slide bearings go (the old part was badly worn, so we couldn't tell). He put the green on the "top" and the white on the "sides".

DRYER COMPLETLY STOPPED RUNNING

  • Customer: Ronald from Gatesville TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I have had this happen to another GE dryer, so I had an idea what was wrong. After taking the 4 torx screws out from under the front lip of dryer top, lifting the top back (like opening the hood of your car) in the back right corner is where the High Limit Tstat is. To verify the problem (dryer already unpluged of course) pull the two wires off the terminals of Tstat, connect them together, wrap bare parts w/ electrical tape. Let top down & plug dryer in-- it started& ran fine. Got online and ordered replacement Tstat (it arrived in 2 days-- great!) Unscrewed the two 1/4" hex screws holding Tstat on, installed new part. On to bigger and better things ! Dryer working fine.

dryer drum belt broke

  • Customer: Adam from Colebrook CT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

The job is simple once you know how to remove the front panel. The steps are as follows:
1. disconnect the power cord.
2. remove 4 Phillips-head screws under the lip of the front panel that secure it to the top panel (#1 point Phillips-head screw driver)
3. swing the top panel up, it is hinged in the rear.
4. making note of the connection points of the color-coded wires, disconnect the wires to the lamp socket and door switch (I used a felt-tipped pen on the inside of the front panel to mark the connection points, "R" for red, etc.)
5. remove the upper 2 hex-head screws from inside of the front panel (5/16" nut-driver)
6. loosen the lower 2 hex-head screws (5/16" nut-driver) accessible from outside the panel (you only have to loosen them since the bottom mounting tabs are slotted)
7. slightly lift (to clear above mentioned lower tabs) and tilt the front panel toward you. Swing the front panel to the right as though you were opening a door and position so it does not fall.
8. remove 10 hex-head screws from the black lower rear access panel (5/16" nut-driver) and remove the broken drive belt. Note that the narrow black panel securing the power cable can remain in place.
9. at this point take advantage of the situation and vacuum out the years of lint and dust you could not reach before.
10. stand in front of the dryer, lift the dryer drum slightly and slip the new belt (rib side down) around the drum. Position the belt near the rear of the drum along the wear-mark left by the old belt.
11. go to the back and place the belt in the motor's drive-belt pulley, making sure the ribbed side of the belt mates with the ribs in the pulley.
12. position the tension wheel so that the it takes up the slack in the drive belt. Note the flat side of the drive belt will mate with the flat of the tension wheel.
13. spin the dryer drum a few turns by hand to make sure the drive belt lines up properly with the pulley.
14. reassemble the dryer by reversing the above steps, starting at step 8.

dryer making a squeeling sound.

It wasn't so bad taking it apart, but getting the drum back on was a problem. So what i did was too turn the dryer over and cut the heads off of three long screws and slid the drum over top of these and it lined up with the bearing housing.After a few tries it finally lined up and then i put the regular screws back in to hold the drum in place, one at a time.

There is a plastic female closure part in the dryer door that wouldn't close tightly around the metal male closure on the dryer. I popped out the plastic square with a screwdriver, popped the new plastic closure in with my thumb. Works great. I never even installed the new metal portion of the latch.
