This drum support roller kit includes one drum roller and two bearings/washers. Most dryers use two drum rollers; it is recommended to change both at once. The drum support roller holds the drum in the proper position while it spins on the support wheels. If rollers are worn out, they will cause the dryer to be noisy. Tools needed for repair are a stubby Phillips screw driver, snap ring pliers, and 5/16 nut driver. Be sure to disconnect power from the appliance. Simply unplug the dryer or engage the off-switch. It is recommended to check surrounding parts before ordering, such as the roller shaft and front glide kit. These parts are often purchased together.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This roller shaft is also known as a support roller shaft or a drum roller axle, and is a part for your dryer. The function of this piece is to act as the axle for the drum roller; it provides a place for the roller to spin. The tools required for this repair include a stubby Phillips screwdriver, a 5/16 nut driver, a pair of snap ring pliers, and a 9/16 wrench. The first step before making this repair should be to disconnect your dryer from the power source.
If you notice that your dryer is noisy or will not tumble, then you may need to replace the drum roller shaft washer. This drum roller shaft washer is just under an inch in diameter and is sold individually. It is located on the shaft of the drum roller, in the interior of your dryer. To access the drum roller shaft, you will need to remove the front panel of your dryer, and then remove the drum. Before completing this repair, be sure to disconnect the power source from the dryer. Tools required for this repair include a 5/16 nut driver, a stubby Phillips screwdriver, and a pair of snap ring pliers.
The front glide is located at the front of the dryer and the drum rides along it. If you hear a metal-on-metal noise when your dryer is running, your front glide may be worn out and may require replacing. This front glide kit comes with a blue plastic glide, a brown cork pad, and two metallic rivets. Two kits are required per appliance. While you have the front bulk head removed for this repair, you may want to inspect the felt that lines it. If the felt is damaged, it is recommended that you replace it at the same time. You will need a rivet tool for this kit, as well as a stubby Phillips screwdriver, a 5/16 nut driver, and a drill with a 1/8-inch bit.
