Repair was easy, following the disassembly instructions from the video on your site. What I did not know is that it takes 2 pieces of plastic slides from each kind to replace (makes a total of 4). I was lucky in that one of the white ones was still okay and that I accidentally ordered a second one from the greenish kind, so I was set. This was also a great opportunity to clean out the dryer which must have been a bucket full of lint. So far no more complaints. Given that this problem seems to reappear once in a while I'll order a new set soon.
I googled the problem and found a forum where people were having the same problem. Luckily I found a post that told me the exact parts I needed. I then found a video on youtube, followed every step and completed the repairs in about 45 minutes. I'm a housewife and found this fairly easy. The dryer now works like a charm!
First i took the top cover off2nd i took the front cover off disconnected the wires but make sure that you mark the wires first. 3rd I pull the drum forward removed the three scews holding the rear bearing .4th I remove the four screws holding the bearing bracket from heating element.To remove the bracket you might have to remove the heating element i only remove three screws and was able to put my hand behind it and pull the bracket out.To put back just go in the reverse order.note: get some one to help you.
I basically watch the video on how to get to the top bearing assy. and to replace the guides and it went pretty easy. The only thing was the drum had to be moved back into the frame because it was sticking to far out. I now have a new dryer and its very quite and does not eat the clothing any more. I received the part fast and I will use parts select for my other appliances.
remove top cover and lean front panel foreward.remove old top bearing and snap new one in place.
I replaced the slides and the top bearing. Watched a video on here on how to replace the slides. Which helped me remove the door properly. Very easy. Was able to do by oneself. Parts came really fast. Only down for two days.
i took the front load dryer apart found the parts that were bad ordered the parts which were a snap at partsselect at first i thought it would be tuff to put back together but the site has good pictures i put the dryer back together but had a tuff time with the belt after i watched a video it went right together i found that taking pictures with my cell phone while taking things apart helped a lot when putting it back together all in all im proud of myself i didnt think i could do it but i did and the dryer works great i will be using the site again i used it a few months ago for my washer it it worked great too!!
removed top of unit, control panel and front of dryer. Disassembled assembly and installed new housing and glides, reassembled and checked operation
Worn out top bearing plastic part and worn out felt. Removed top part of the front where the dial and buttons are, then the top, then the front where the parts I was replacing were. It was overall easy and didn't require a cdertified repair person. These were parts that were worn out. I am dissapointed in the GE product. It is only 3 1/2 yrs old and already worn out. Poor design and poor quality parts. I will look at other brands next time when replacing the front loading dryer and washer. Overall a faril;y easy repair that most mechnicaaly oreinted person can do. Also thaks to partselct for the diagrams which helped tremendously with meticulous parts.
It's so easy, a caveman can do it! Watch the video on how to take it apart and while you have it open, grab a shop vac and clean around the area where you don't normally see. I replaced the top bearing since it was worn out pretty bad. The drum slides ( white and green ) which comes in pairs, were already gone. Put everything back together and works like new. No more squelling and vibration that sounds like my dryer was ready to come apart. Very fast on shipment. Thanks
I followed the video instructions on Partselect.com, and had no issues or problems.
