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.

Loud noise

The repair was very simple, the information video was a very big help. Followed the steps just by watching the video. All the parts came apart and back together as stated in the video. Cannot be any easier. I used all the parts I order, but all it really needed was the drum support roller kit (noise) and the idler pulley (worn pulley). Dryer is quiet once again. WooHoo.

Dryer had been making a loud squealing noise then the drum stopped turning.

I wasn't sure how to access the belt inside so I went online looking for a diagram. I came accross the PartSelect website and found the awesome video instructions on how to disassemble, change each part and reassemble everything. I discovered I had a broken belt and the drum rollers were bad. I ordered the parts from PartSelect on a Wednesday and they arrived on that Friday. I started the repair on Saturday morning and following the video repair instructions a couple hours later my dryer was back in business for a very reasonable dollar amount. Thanks to PartSelect for making my repair so much easier!!

Loud screeching noise when starting

Followed directions provided in video which are very clear and helpful. Took your expert about 15 - 20 minutes, but in reality it takes about an 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours which included cleaning out the whole cabinet area. Did not need the idler arm but did not want to find out after taking everything apart that a new one was needed.Also suggest drawing a sketch of how the belt goes around the drum,idler and motor for reference when reinstalling.

The drum support roller had disintegrated and fallen off the roller shaft

I simply removed the retaining clip and old bearing and re-installed the new drum roller, washers and retaining clip. Fairly simple really.

Tension idler was making a high pitch noise

I had to remove the door, raise top and remove the front panel. After removing the drum and belt it was easy to replace the tension idler and put it all back together.

Noisy when running, squeeked at times, belt finally came off

Pulled out the tumbler and removed belt. Removed the two drum support rollers and shafts by removing a nut on the back side of each shaft.

Horrible squeaking when running

I did it exactly the way the video showed it. I thought I would have to take it out to the pole barn and spend 5-6 hours on it. Because of the excellent video, it was much easier than I thougt it would be.

Noisy drum opreation

Opening the cabinet allowed for a through examination and listing of the worn components: 1 defective idler and mounting shaft, 1 worn drive belt, 2 sagging felt seals, 1 worn glide surface, 1 dead light bulb. Replacement parts arrived in two days. After a through vacuuming, reassembly was a snap. Both roller/shafts and glide pads were replaced as matched pairs. Unit operates now as factory new. I am not a trained repair person but simple logic, sufficient care, and attention to a clean assembly routine is all it took.

Loud noise coming from inside dryer cabinet

A noise in the dryer cabinet started as a chirp, then slowly progressed into a constant squealing noise. After reading reviews on this site, I decided to go ahead and order the roller shafts and drum roller support kits for both sides. The cabinet was relatively simple to disassemble. I removed the door and the front panel, then lifted the top panel to expose the drum. After releasing the tension on the idler pulley I removed the belt and the drum from the cabinet. Once inside, I examined all moving parts and determined that, although the support rollers were worn, they were not the source of the noise, it was the idler roller itself. I order the additional parts that day, and had them the next afternoon. Once back inside the dryer cabinet, the removal and replacement of the idler pulley and assocaited bracket/shaft took less than five minutes. I went ahead and replaced the support rollers as well since I already had them delivered, and that took a total of about 15 minutes. The support rollers are held on the shatfs by c-clips, and having the special pliers built for removing those clips was a big help and time saver. All total this job can be competed by someone with moderate mechanical knowledge and basic tools. It did take some time and patience to get the drum and belt re-installed and routed around the correct route, including the motor polley and new idler pulley. Total time was over one hour, due more so to the time spent cleaing the lint out of the cabinet than actual part replacement.

Dryer was making a loud screeching noise

Once I determined where the noise was coming from I took the front cover off, two screws at the bottom and clipped at the top. Then I removed the lint screen shroud . Instructions said to remove belt and drum, but I was able to pull the drum forward enough to get to the roller without removing the belt. I removed the snap ring from the shaft holding the roller...cleaned up the shaft and installed new roller with fiber washers. Slid the drum back in place and put shroud and front cover back on. I also replaced a front panel clip that I had broken on a previous repair. It just snapped into place.

Drum was squealing

Replaced the belt and both rollers. I ahould have included the front drum glides as they are trough the slick top covering. Easy to replace later but could have saved shipping if I would have believed they were wornout.
