Rear drum bearing failure

  • Difficulty: Really easy

Follow instructions all most to the letter. In video it was stated to get an assistant to hold static / housing retainer in place to start screws. I put it in place and, used Duck Tape to hold it there while i started screws. Thanks for the deal on parts and, video. I would also suggest advising to check the nylon strips on felt at the front top. Mine were worn. But there was enough at the back of nylon to remove and, glue remainder in place almost as good as new. Again! ''THANKS!''

The only probelem was to take out the drum, because it was a washer and dryer combo. the dryer was on top, i did not have any room to pull out the drum

After removing the old drum glide there was tufts of felt and glue left behind. The DIY video (which inspired me to try this repair myself) says to use a scraper and wire brush to clean the drum edge. I decided to try a drill with a wire wheel. Worked great. The surface was shining clean in minutes.

Watched video on you tube went to PartSelect web site determined it was the rear bearing from the probable causes listed. Received part in two days and the job took less than thirty minutes. The limited access to the belt motor was the only difficult part of the job but by putting the belt on the idler pulley first and pulling down on the belt I was able to get it over the motor pulley. Thanks PartSelect for making this job easier than I thought it would be.

After figuring out how to remove the top, front, and control panel from the Gallery series, which is different than the dryer in the video, the repair was easy. Just followed the rest of the proceedure in the video.

Dryer made rubbing and thumping sounds.

This repair is easy, but somewhat time consuming.The machine is about 30 years old and needed attention beyond replacing the purchased parts. Initially, the rubbing and thumping sound was intermittent. It got progressively louder and more steady, as time passed, until I finally opened it up to see what was happening. The tub was hitting the blower housing. The rear bearing had become so worn that the tub had dropped low enough to come in contact with the housing. While I had the unit apart, I decided to replace the heating element because it was original equipment and I thought it may have lost some of its efficiency. I ordered the parts on Sunday evening. They arrived the following Tuesday at around noon...a mere 18 hours after I placed the order. All the parts I have ever ordered from Partselect.com, and there are quite a few, have come that quickly. Removing the bearing from the drum was the most difficult part. I had to grab the mounting screws from outside the tub with vise grips to crack them loose. The rest of the bearing assembly was very easy, as was the heating coil. The front of the tub rides around a protrusion on the front panel. On that protrusion, there are three plastic "shoes" that the tub rides on. One of them had fallen off. I purchased a high temp glue suitable for use with plastic and metal, glued and clamped the part back in place. Also, some of the felt seal around the door had come loose and I used the same glue to stick that back in place. Vacuumed thoroughly, reassembled the tub, belt (look for the "this side up" stamp on the belt)and front panel. It now works like a new machine and I figure I saved about $350 if comparing this fix to buying a new machine.

Replaced the front and rear drum bearings and changed the belt because the dryer was about 8 years old. The repair was easier than I anticipated thanks to the excellent repair video furnished by Parts Select. FedEx delivered the new parts within two days. Dryer works like new!

Squeaky Squealing dryer, then the drum stopped turning

I followed the instructions in the videos that came with the email I got when the parts shipped. I would recommend looking at all the parts that come with the kit before you start. The video says to reuse some parts, but you have new ones. Also, after unplugging the dryer, I used a flat screw driver to pop the tabs on the 'lid' of the dryer. Removing the two screws that hold the front on was easy, and removing the front to sit aside. The flashlight is nice when you reach under the drum to get the belt off the idler pully and motor pulley. Wiggling the drum out was a little tricky but not hard. After removing the drum, I vacuumed the lint and really cleaned the inside of the dryer. Taking the screws out of the inside of the drum would be easier if you can put it up on a table or other work surface. Bottom line, I'm a girl with arthritis and did it by myself, you can too :) Dryer runs like a dream

brown streaks on clothes and not drying very well

I removed and replaced both upper drum glide which took only a few minutes. The old one came off very easily and the new one after seeing your video was a breeze. The lower drum seal took longer to remove the old glue since it was nearly petrafied but once the glue was off the new one was extremely simple to install... My dryer now dries again and doesn't streak the clothes. Thank You for the help.... You are wonderful and made a task extremely easy. The only thing I didn't know was I had to lift the dryer tub up a little to fit the front back on. Wow I know nothing about dryers and this was a snap!!!!!
