Identified Problem by using silicone spray on drum bearing wheels, when noise stopped I knew bearings were bad. Removed drum per PartsSelect diagram of my dryer then removed wheels, and bearing shaft.Will need a snap ring pliers with small holes to remove snap rings. I ordered new shafts, washers,snap rings,drum wheels, and belt. Installing belt use two hands and make sure tension bar is correct review belt locations before repair. Also cleaned and vacumned inside of Dryer. Remember to unplug, I did not and when door was removed I caused a short that blew fuse, lucky that I did not damage dryer in process. Working well now with no nose.
Remove front lower panel.Remove lint exhaust plenum from dryer filter housing and exhaust fan schroud.Remove front upper panel and note the placement of the three door switch and two light wires. Remove them.Pull dryer drum forward until you can easily remove the snap ring on the drum wheel shafts.Remove the wheels, take a 5/16" nut drive and remove the mounting screws.Reverse the process to install the replacement shaft assembly and wheels.Reverse the process to re assemble the dryer.All done.
Took the dryer apart, replace parts....put back together....all is well...until I tried to put the belt back on and broke the belt tensioner. Had to put a rush on that order
Super Simple. Remove lower front panel (2 screws). Remove front door & panel (2 more screws). Disconnect push on wire connectors after marking each side with a sharpie pen (for easy re-assembly). Top hinges up towards the rear and rests against the wall. Lift out the drum. Remove snap rings on the shaft that holds the guide wheels at the rear of the drum. remove wheels. One of the shaft pieces that holds the wheel was shot so I replaced that (2 screws). Put new wheels back on. This was actually fairly hard. the new shaft seemed to have a larger receiving end. with hammer and lube I eventually got it on. Re-assemble in reverse order. took about 20 minutes. the only special tool was snap ring pliers (could easily get snap rings off with a flat screw driver.
I removed lower panel and front of Dryer. I also removed Drum bracket and pulled drum slightly out. I was able to acess drum roller without taking drum completly out. I removed drum roller and roller bracket. Re-installed both I did have to buy a new split ring to hold roller on It took all of about 45 min to do.
Unplugged dryer, turned gas off, removed top, front and bottom front panels, lifted drum and supported, removed old roller, installed new roller, reinstalled panels.
i took the dryer apart to research the squeak. could tell the issue was coming from the idler pulley (the pulley the belt goes around. but since i was taking the whole thing apart i got two new rollers and slides and a spare retaining ring in case i broke the old one during install. in most cases i would purchase a new belt also, but mine still looked new.always unplug the dryer first. then use a flat balde screwdriver and put in between dryer top and dryer body a couple of inches from either side of the dryer, do one side at a time and slightly rotate screwdiver this will disconnect clips holding top of dryer on. once the clips are free lift dryer top like a car hood and let lid rest back against a wall behind dryer. draw a diagram of wire connections as you go this will make reassembly easy. disconnect the two wires attached to the door latch, then on the right side and left side of the dryer about two inches from the top there is a self tapping bolt that needs to be removed. once the bolts are out you will be able to lift and pullback on the front of the dryer to remove. three philips screws hold the lint trap assembly to the door assembly i took these out and vacuumed everywhere i could. there is a plastic assembly on the front of the heater unit, three small bolts will remove this. draw a diagram of the wires attached to the blower unit and disconnect. reach behind the blower unit release the tension on the belt by pulling the tensioner puilley forward, you will then with the other hand be able to remove the belt. with the belt removed, 4 bolts around the frame of the drum will enable you to remove the drum making all the repairs very easy. you will see both black rollers in the back bottom of the machine, remove with a set of snap ring pliers and replace the same way-make sure the side that says "front" is facing you when you install. the tensioner pulley with bearing is also replaced with a single snap ring, all three can be replaced in minutes. the slides are plastic pieces that are mounted on the inside of the front panel of the dryer that the drum rolls on. the old ones just slide out and the new ones slide in as long as the brackets are still good, no tools required. put everything together in reverse order, getting the drum back in and the belt back on my require an extra set of hands, but is not hard. dryer sounds new, saved myself hundredss of dollars, i'm sure and once i diagnosed the problem and had the parts, repairs were made inside of an hour.
I followed the instructions listed by others on the diassembly and reassembly. What I did discover was that in my case the squeaking noise was actaully coming from the drive idler, not the suspected drum support rollers.If you order parts I would buy the idler roll also to insure the problem is corrected.
I first removed the screws on the bottom section of the dryer. Then I removed the face/door remembering how the two wires on the dryer were hooked up. After that there are two screws that allow the top to flip up on some megshift hinges. this reveals the drum and the guts of the machine. Reaching under the drum I disconnected the belt by pulling the tension wheel down to release the pressure on the belt. Once that is done you can just pull out the drum. The rollers are on the back wall. You have to remove the lock washers on each wheel (provided you change both((I recommend)). Then the rollers just pull off. Remove the the two screws (1/4 in) . It's just a reversal from there. Always clean up all the lent/debris with a vacuum while your there. It's just a good thing to do. Thats it. good luck
The first thing I did was to unplug the dryer, I then removed the 2 screws on the lower cover,removed the cover, then removed the 2 screws for the door and un pluged the wires for the safet switch.and removed the door. I then removed the 4 screws that held the front durm support and removed it with the air ducting attached, I removed the 2 screws that hold the top of the dryer so that I could lift it as needed. I unhooked the belt from the tensioner and removed the belt and drum, I removed the snap rings and old rollers to give me access to the mounting bolts for the roller axels, and removed them. The drum had a flat spot from the worn out rollers that a few taps with a rubber mallet fixed. then usins the new parts reassembled the rollers, Installed the drum with a new drive belt. the bolted down the top the top, At this time I rolled the drum to make sure the belt and tensioner were ok. Then front support and ducting , the door ( remember to reattach the door safety switch wire ) and lower panel were bolted back into place. The dryer runs and sounds like new.
I had read enough online to know that the repair was to be done all through the front of the dryer.I simply unplugged the dryer first ( 220 will hurt you ) removed the front and position the tub where I could get to the rear roller supports without removing any thing else. You will need a pair of snap ring pliers to make the repair go smoothly. I replaced both rollers ( only one was bad ) positioned the tub and put everything back together. I must say I was unaware that dryers had so little to them , with a good parts supply you should be able to get 20 to 30 years service easy ?
removed the front panels, removed the drum, then with with the ring pliers removed the worn out rollers and roller brackets and replaced with new. Vacuumed the inside and replaced the drum and panels.
First: I read a lot of repair stories on PartSelect.com, as well as on other sites.Removed 2 screws and took off lower panel. I turned the drum by hand, and identified the left/rear roller to be the squeaking part. Removed the 2 screws that held the door panel, removed it, and enjoyed the fireworks!!!, because I had neglected to unplug the dryer first. The door switch was ruined, but I was thankful that no bodily injury or severe property damage happened.While I was shining the flashlight toward the back/underside of the dryer, my dear wife noticed light inside the drum.Ordered a new new door switch, roller axle, roller and rear felt cylnder seal...all arrived in 3 days.Decided to replace the front felt seal too, and bought it at a local shop, along with the adhesive, which I couldn't find at PartSelect.com for less than $32.Took the front drum panel, belt, drum and bulkhead panels off per advice at this site.Replaced switch, but had to crimp on a new spade connector (included with the switch).Cleaned off old felt seal adhesive with Goof-Off, and glued on the new seals.Replaced the real axle and wheel, with a little added lithium grease.Cleaned out the dirt in the dryer cabinet, and put everything back together with my wife's help and her keen common sense.The dryer is much quieter, and dries faster thanks to the new seals.The repair was straightforward, but I rated it "a bit difficult" because of the amount of taking-apart and rebuilding that I decided to do.
