Front Glide Kit

Part Number 1804752

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.

Question:

From what I read on your site it sounds like I need to replace my supports. The problem is a loud squeaking noise during cycle. Does that sound right? I don’t want to buy 2 of these without knowing for sure. What else would you recommend checking at the same time? My wife wants the noise gone.

Paul
Answer:

Hi Paul, thanks for getting in touch. You did find the right roller for your model, it is 12001541 and you will need two of them for this repair. We also recommend checking your felt seals to make sure they are sturdy and in place, and that your idler pulley is in a good working condition. These are all the most common reasons a dryer would be squeaky during cycle.

Question:

When I put clothes in my dryer and turn it on, it is making a loud clunking noise like I have a pair of shoes inside. I’m also getting black marks on the clothes that I don’t think are coming from the washer. What could be the problem(s)?

Dale
Answer:

Hello Dale. We can address both your problems! The thumping sound is most commonly caused by a drum roller that is failing 12001541. A failing drum roller teamed with a worn seal WP33001807 is most likely the reason your clothes are getting marked. If the seal is worn it will cause the clothes to catch on the gap where the seal is located, this could snag them and create black marks. Good luck with this repair!

Question:

When should I replace the drum rollers, what should I be looking for? And will I need lubricant for the shaft? If so what do you recommend?

Kay
Answer:

Hi Kay, great question. If your rollers are already making noise during cycle they should be replaced, if not you should be looking for flat spots as a sign of wear. Also, you will not need to lubricate the shaft, it should all fit together without it. I hope this helps.

Squeel from drum support

just like the video on the website. It would have helped if the info included that the culprit was likely the worn shaft above the heater and not the roller itself. I replaced both rollers and the belt as a percaution, but expect I will have to replace that shaft soon. I will use the good roller from the other side that I replaced and just replace the worn shaft when that happens.

The dryer was making a very loud squeeking sound

The process was pretty methodical. This is a washer/dryer stack unit, and the dryer is on top. I removed the top 2 screws on the dryer front cover, and pulled it down, while being careful of the connecting wires that are attached. I also removed the lower front panel (it angles in at the base), and pulled that out. There are a few plates to remove (one steel and one pale green) and as I removed them, I had labels for the screws on a few pages to keep track of where each screw and plate went. Then, finally, I removed the screws that held the main tumbler in place. There are four. From that point, pulling the tumbler out is relatively easy, as long as you turn it as you pull it out, so the belt can slip off. The only real problem I had was the expanding washer that holds the drum roller support from slipping off. It has to be pulled apart so that it can be removed from the roller shaft, and when I did it, the piece snapped off, and fell into the inside of the dryer bottom, and I had to hunt for it. But once that was done, I put the new roller support on, and it was completed. I didn't need the other parts. It was the Drum support roller that had rusted.

Dryer had a high squeal

I removed the back plate on the lower right corner, unfastened the spring on the tension gear, removed the belt from the tension roller and motor pulley. Removed the front panel of the dryer, then removed the drum panel, which holds the drum into place and also the air flow. Removed the drum and belt. Using the snap ring pliers, removed the snap rings from each of the support drum rollers. Removed the rollers and replaced them with new ones, replaced snap rings, replaced drum which was easy along with the belt, replaced the drum panel, went to the back of the dryer and replace the belt on the motor pulley and tension roller, re hooked the spring. Returned to the front of the dryer and replaced the door switch kit. Overall it was very simple operation. The hardest part is to get the belt in the proper place.

Periodic metal on metal sounding squeel while running

3 times I simply lubricated the roller shaft which only bought me a few weeks of peace. The metal on metal shaft/roller simply wore out and needed
to be replaced. By now I was getting very good at
disassembling the dryer so installing the new parts was quick and easy. The real trick was using
the model number to get a full detailed break-down to order the correct parts. If you don't see the diagram, keep trying variations on the model number until you do.

Installation of parts solved the difficulty!

I watched all of the video provided for repairing each of the parts and used them several times! They were excellent and beneficial! I used the suggestions provided and found the involved correction to do exactly as planned. The end result was very good and the dryer now works like it is supposed to without any noises. I thank you for all of your help.

Blower wheel was worn, belt was worn, drum support didn't turn freely

Unplugged dryer. Removed top, face and drum. Using snap ring pliers, I removed the old drum supports and installed the new ones. Next I removed the cover to the blower wheel housing. Then using snap ring pliers and regular pliers I removed the worn blower wheel and installed the new one by reverse steps. Lastly the belt. I put the belt around the drum , placed the drum in the dryer and had my son hold it steady as I threaded the belt around the motor and idler pulley. All that's left is to put the face and cover back. The repair was simple and the dryer is running like a champ. I would suggest having some snap rings handy as I had to replace them as well.

Screeching noise from inside dryer

It was simply a matter of finding the two screws at the lower front face. After that, the dryer come apart easily. The drum support rollers were held on with one nut each. i lubricated them with Dow Corning silicon hi temp grease. The belt was installed the same as the old one was removed. Insructions were easy to follow as was the re assembly of the dryer. All the parts fit correctly and were the right replacement items.

Loud screeching noise

I watched the very helpful video provided by Parts Select. The repair went smoothly except for two problems. After reassembly, there was still a noise coming from the rotating drum, which I later discovered was the result of not making sure the felt gaskets around the front and back edges of the drum were not being pinched. Smoothing the felt solved the problem. The other issue was that after the repair the dryer was shutting off prematurely, before the clothes were completely dry. This was again my fault. When I first removed the bulkhead, a wire to the automatic moisture sensor came loose without my noticing it, hiding itself deep inside the cabinet. Since the model used on the video did not have such a sensor, disconnecting/reconnecting the wire was not mentioned. Upon reopening the cabinet, I noticed the loose wire and reconnected it -- problem solved. Thanks Parts Select, and thanks to the other user reports that provided useful tips.

This unit is a combination washer/dryer and a squealing noise started in the dryer.

It was obvious that the noise was coming from the drum support rollers. All of the ordered merchandise came quickly and as ordered. Be sure to order 2 drum roller kits and 2 roller shafts because there are 2 on the machine. Disconnect the power to the machine. Take the panel directly above the washer door off. Take the control panel off, but no need to disconnect the controls. There are a few wires that you will have to remove from the door, so make a note as to how these are put on so you will get them back correctly. Remove the dryer door. Once the two panels are removed you can see the dryer motor and Idler Pulley. Draw a picture as to how the belt goes around the motor pulley and the idler pulley. Slip the belt off of the motor pulley and carefully remove the dryer drum. When you accomplish this, you can see the drum rollers and the idler pulley very well. Take a half inch wrench and take the drum roller shaft off. Take the retainer off the roller and replace both the roller and shaft with a new one because if it is squealing this is probably the wise thing to do, as the bearing rolls over the shaft. Replace the washers onto the shaft along with the roller and reattach to the dryer. I replaced the Idler Pulley wheel and bearing as a precaution to avoid having to go into the machine again. (Note) it is held on with a C clamp that you can remove with a screw driver. I also ordered a lint filter as mine was slightly worn. I also ordered a new belt because the machine was 11 years old and the old belt was slightly cracked. When putting the new belt on, be careful to put the rib side next to the dryer drum. Place the belt over the back part of the dryer before putting the drum into the machine. Once the drum is placed into the machine and before putting the drum on the rollers you reach into the back and get the belt and place the rib side over the drum and onto the pulleys the same way that you drew your picture. Once the belt is on the idler pulley and motor pulley you can raise the drum up over the rollers and then spin it around a few times to see that the belt isn't kinked and that the drum and blower move as they should. Make certain the rib side is next to the drum and that it is installed like your picture. I took the blower cover loose and some other parts while I was in the machine and vacuumed it out good to prevent fires and to make certain that it was free of lint. Put everything back and the machine works like new.

The dryer was making a loud noise that sounded like it was about to quit, it was!

My husband and a friend decided to take the dryer apart to see what the problem might be and if it could be repaired. I had already decided the dryer is about 14 years old, it is history. They discovered the roller was broken, and other parts such as the belt, a pulley and so on. I went online to www.partselect.com. I was surprised to see diagrams of the inside of my dryer. That helped us order the right parts. I ordered the parts for a total of 68.00 (including shipping) The parts came, the dryer was fixed and runs like new. I saved 400.00, because I did not have to buy a new dryer. I am very proud that we were able to use this site to locate our needs and fix the dryer. The diagrams helped us perform the task without calling a repair person.
Thank you for this opportunity!

Squealing drum roller and shaft

From the back, i released the spring to the roller holding tension on the drum belt. I took the front off and was able to reach the nut holding the roller shaft to the assembly with a half inch open end wrench. Then i worked the roller and shaft off, assembled the new shaft and roller and worked it onto the bracket and put nut back on and tighten it with the half inch wrench. The dryer sounds good now.
