First I took the dryer apart to see what the problem was and found that the felt dryer guide had come off it's mount and was broken. Next I saw that the dryer glides were worn away and if it was used much more it would have ruined the whole housing. I ordered the parts from parts select and to my pleasant surprise they were there in two days. The glides sit right over the door and just slip right in. The felt goes on the bottom under the door and sits in a plastic guide in which the felt is placed I tied the ends of the felt down on the ends with a piece of small wire to make sure they stay in place. It's been two weeks since my repair and there are no problems.
I basically follow the instruction from previous feedbacks. It is very simple just as 1-2-3. The previous instruction are very clear so no need to rewrite them.
First I unplugged the dryer. Then opened the door, removed both screws on top in opening. Then pulled up the top of the dryer and removed two screws, one on each side of dryer and pulled the front off the dryer. I removed the door light from drum bearing housing and pulled off the old drum bearing. I took the new drum bearing, installed the 4 new drum slides onto the drum bearing housing. 2 front dryer drum slides and 2 drum slides. Then snapped it into place and reinstalled the door light. I then vaccumed out the dryer, re-installed the front of the dryer and secured it with one screw on each side, pushed the top back down and screwed in the two screws in the top of the door opening. Job completed, it was fast and the squeek is gone.

This was really easy to me.1. I removed the 2 screws holing the top on.2. Carefully lifted and removed the top cover of the dryer.3. Removed the two screws holding the front of the dryer.4. Pulled the front of the dryer back being careful not to separate the wiring and set it up against the wall.5. Removed the old bearing (which was totally destroyed).6. Cleaned up all the old lint and build up off everything.7. Attached the new bearing after installing the slides.8. Resembled the part by reversing the above process.9. NO more screeching, works perfectly.This cost me a total of $50.00, (I used next day delivery)was completed in 3 days. If I had called my home assurance company it would have cost me $55.00 plus they would have come out, viewed the problem, orders the parts and 10 days later I would have had it fixed. What a waste of my time!
removed top of dryer to expose screws holding front cover. removed two more screws took front off, installed slides and felt seal. easy as 123...thanks parts select for quick and easy ordering/shipment.
Removed top of dryer, removed the front housing. Cleaned the interior of dryer cabinet and all the build-up of lint and other matter with shop vac. Placed front housing on work table and removed the old drum bearing and felt seal. Cleaned the old lint and crud from housing. Installed the new bearing and slides. Some of the seals had deteriated, so I used some weather stripping to re-seal the exhaust port and connector. Reinstalled the front panel and hooked up the electrical connections. Tested operation before replacing the top cover. Drum is now very smooth again, and no squeeking. Very simple repair. I might also mention, I priced these parts at a local parts house, and found I would have been better off buying a new machine if I had bought the parts localy. ( I forgot to mention I unpluged the machine before removing any parts.) Hope anyone reading this has as successful a job as I did.
The repair was very easy. Had to remove the front of dryer, parts fit great. It was worth the extra money to ship parts next day then to listen to the squeeking anymore.Thanks to this site I was able to get the parts fast!!!
