Horrible screeching sound when dryer was running.

It took more time to figure out how to get the dryer apart than it did to fix it. Unfortunately I ordered the wrong parts the first time but Part Select was very helpful and efficient in helping me get the correct parts. I located the two screws that hold the top onto the machine inside the door frame at the top. Once the top was off, there were two screws that held the front door assembly to the dryer. The old parts (very worn and next to totally gone = none of the slides were remaining) were easy to snap out and the new parts easy to snap in to place. The Spa is happy that the dryer is quiet again and can be run when we have clients waiting. Thanks to you Part Select.

Dryer sqeaking loudly after it warms up

I Removed the top cover by removing the two small screws just inside the dryer door at the top. The I removed the dryer front and door assembly by removing the two small screws inside the dryer front on each side. That's it. All the parts can then be accessed and replaced easily. The entire job took 10 minutes including a good cleanout.

When tub was turning it had a grinding sound.

First unplug the dryer from power. Now open the dryer door and remove the two phillips head screws that hold the top down. Then lift the top off and turn the dryer on it's back (this is not necessary but if you have the room it makes the job easier). Now remove the two hex head screws that hold the front on and remove the wires from the door switch. Now you can lift the front of the dryer off, door and all. This now allows you to replace the three (on this model) slide bearings and the felt. I also removed the belt and lifted the drum out and checked both the belt and the rear bearing. You can do it!

Clothing was getting stuck on inside near top of door

I followed instructions provided by other users of this site. Two screws removed allowed the top to be raised. Two more screws allowed the front to be removed and swung to the side. I removed the felt, and replaced it, after looking which way the bevelled edge faced. The teflon drum slide bearings were simple to replace. The front drum bearing was a little difficult to remove, but I just kept prying with a flathead screwdriver and it eventually began to pop off. I vacuumed and removed a ton of lint from everywhere I could get at, and the dryer now runs quieter with no more clothing getting hung up inside.

Loud squeaky noises when running

I had never tried to fix a dryer before, but I checked your site and found detailed troubleshooting instructions. I found several parts diagrams that made me think it would not be too difficult. I found the GE Repair manual for my dryer and ordered it. I was able to determine that the sqeaking was in the front, and probably the slides were worn, as opposed to the drum roller. Whew! My daughter and I removed the front and checked them. They were totally worn away and the felt was crimped. We cleaned it up and ordered the replacement parts from you. When they arrived we made the repairs. One of the drum slide holders was too worn to hold the new slide so we applied a bit of super glue to hold it in place. My dryer is running quietly again. I am so glad for your online information. This was an fairly easy fix!

Squealing/rubbing noise clothes getting stuck

Removed the screws (torx head) from the top of the control panel and pulled out of the way.
Then remove the top cover gaining access to the inside. Removed two screws near top inside of front panel, 5/16" nut driver. Then removed front wear the front bearing guide is. The old guide was worn thru badly. Removed the bearing guide, snaps out, but it took a little effort. After cleaning installed parts and make sure you secure the felt at the ends. Reassembled in reverse order. The dryer works great now, no clothes are getting eaten and it is much quieter.

CustomerStephen from CORNWALL NY

The dryer was squeaking like a recently castrated banshee

I first removed four screws above the door opening to lift off the top, then removed two screws, near the top, inside the front, to remove the front. There I found that 2 grey plastic and one white plastic anti-friction strips were worn to nothing (even the large plastic bezel that incorporates the light was starting to wear away, from just a few days!).

When I went to put the front back on, i couldn't get the lip of the drum to ride properly on the felt. In fiddling with it, the drum fell off the rear bearing, too, so I put it back on.

So I ordered new felt, two white and two grey strips (I didn't know if 1 or 2 were in each $8 "kit"--only one per kit), a spare belt--just in case--and some bulbs.

Putting the strips on was easy--15 seconds each. Putting on the felt took all of 20 seconds. I spent more time scraping off the dust and vacuuming things out!

The drum fit over the felt quite easily now, and when I ran it, it was wonderfully quiet. For a minute! Then, it started making a new, grinding noise!

I had a Sears repairman friend come over, and he found that a small platic bushing had fallen off the rear bearing element. Once he put that in place, it all worked perfectly. Beautifully quiet!

Screching noise as tumbler rotaded

Removed the two screws found inside top portion of the door frame. This allows you to remove the front of the dryer but remember to disconect the two wires to the stop switch. After this, top will just lift out, set it aside. Proceeded to place front section on mat on the floor. The parts ordered consisted of drum slide bearing (3) these are just friction pads, the molded front plastic drum bearing and the air dust seal. Proceeded to pull the dust seal, and front drum bearing. Just reversed with the new parts and installation was a breeze.
