The rear drum bearing was worn the dryer became very noisy

i removed the scews just above thr opened dryer door, i was then able to swing the dryer top cover back. i then removed the lower front panel screws ,the the screws securing the front of the dryer ( where the door is ) and removed it. there are just 2 wires to disconnect. after the front is removed you gain full access for drum removal, remove the belt make sure the wires are not in the way and remove the drum.i also used a vacuume to clean the inside of the dryer. the front drum slides are very easy to replace only 2 screws each.remove old parts install new parts then just put the dryer back together in the reverse order i took it apart. after re-assembly i turned the dryer on it was so quiet running my wife and dogs were very happy. ps. i just want to thank the people at partselect for having all my parts in stock and for the speed in which i received them. other than having to repair my dryer it was a very pleasant experiance.

Loud, rhythmic squealing when dryer was running

Opened up machine per instructions.
After examining drum slides and rear drum bearing, determined that all should be replaced due to excessive wear. Drum slides were the chief cause of the squealing, and they were as simple to replace as removing 4 nut drive screws, pulling off the old parts, and replacing with new. The drum bearing had to be coaxed out by tapping with a screwdriver, but the old was just able to be pushed in. All parts came with instructions, so the repair was easy. And no more squealing!

Dryer making incredibly loud squeaking noise as it heated up

Replaced drum bearings, adjusted screw levelers trying to find the source of the noise. It was hard tracking it down. Finally lubricated the drum slides with WD40 and it resolved the problem for a couple days. Decided to try replacing the drum slides. The old ones did not look worn out - still had teflon surfaces - it was not metal on metal like I suspected. But when I got the replacement parts, there were 2 tubes of lubricant with notes that only this specific lubricant needed to be used on these slides. The teflon slides have a fiber material under them, and soaks up the lubricant. Problem appears to be solved. Whether it would be possible to purchase the lubricant only (since the slides looked OK) might be a question, however, the replacement kit cost was reasonable given that it solved the problem.

Clothes pinching between the drum and door opening.

The drum slides on my dryer had worn down to the point that an opening formed that allowed clothes to enter the gap and get pinched between the spinning drum and the door. This would leave a mark and sometimes a cut on the clothes. To repair: open the door and undo the screws above the door opening that hold the top on the dryer. It's hinged in the back so it swings up from the front once the screws are removed. Undo hex head screws on either side at the top that hold on the front of the dryer. Also loosened the same at the bottom of the front panel (includes the door). Pull the front off of the dryer. This exposes the drum slides on either side in the front of the drum. They're fastened to the frame of the dryer. Undo the hex head screws (2 each) and remove drum slide, then replace. I recommend one slide at a time so the other one helps hold the dryer in place. The kit includes both slides. Pretty easy once I discovered how worn the old slides were! The drum turns much easier and quieter now too!
