Dryer made a bad grinding sound sometimes

Took off control panel,top,leftside facing door,and,door panel. Replace the 2 green and 2 white slides, the front drum bearing, the rear bearing and groundind strap behind the heating element,and new belt. Put back together,run's and sounds like new. The hardest part was putting drum bearing in inside and backside of drum by yourself. Replace belt with left side panel off. Easy to get on that way.

A noise coming from the dryer

I first unplugged the dryer and moved to an open area to work on it. I then removed the three screws that held the access plate to disconnect the drive belt from the motor. Second I removed the two screws that held the top cover on then I removed it and set it aside. Third I removed the control station the thing with all the knobs on it that was about 11 screws (there were a mix of different types of screws some were Hex, Torx and Square tip). Fourth I removed the two screws that held the front door assembly on. I did not need to disconnect any wires to the front door.Fith I removed the Drum assembly by lifting and pressing outward on the outside walls of the frame I then carried the drum and set it on secure surface and then removed the three screws that held the bearing in from the inside. After cleaning the dryer after all components were removed I then removed the heating element that holds the bearing sleeve. I then started putting things back together in reverse order until it came time for the front door upper slide assembly that came off pretty easily it just clipped on I put the white and red sliders on first then I put the whole thing on it just clipped on then I put the front door on and screwed it on and finished putting things back on in reveres order. Then plugged it up and gave it test run and no noise and it runs great I hope for another ten years.

Front bearing and slides worn

First looked up on Google how to correct the squeak. Almost got into an internet trap by a you tube video looking to seel the slides for $20.00 (white) & $24.00 (green) each but luckily found your website. I originally ordered just the slides (first order) then aferwards ordered everything. Replacement parts fit right in without any struggle.

Loud squeaking noise

Order and repair went fine. Just followed installation instructions already posted. However, after the repair it would overheat and shut off. Tested thermostats and they were good. Forums repeatedly talked about air flow problems but I knew it was clean. Ended up putting foam weather stripping on inside of front panel where it meets duct of squirrel fan and that fixed it.

Dryer drum was squeaking.

Looked up the problem and solution on the web and,ah-ha, drum slides should be the cure. Easy to install, . Back to the internet to discover that after the slides, the bearing and felt liner were the next likely culprits. Again easy install, but to no avail. Calling in the pros.

Replace rear bearing, drive belt, front drum slides.

This was very easy. The utility room is just off the kitchen. I had your repair video running on my laptop on the kitchen island and started at ~8am last Saturday. A very fun project, because all the guesswork has been eliminated by watching your repair video for a few moments, hitting pause, then doing exactly what was explained on the video. I took the time to vacuum out every piece of lint, then carefully reassembled the dryer. One bit of advice- - if you need to disconnect any wires, mark them with a Sharpie pen: one dot on both the wire and the spot you pulled it from, two dots for the second wire, etc. At reassembly time, it's a snap. Also, as you remove screws, keep a few sandwich bags handy so you can group screws together. Have fun!

For about 6 months our dryer has been making a sqealing noise and kept getting worst

I took off the dryer top and saw it was the slides went on line found PartsSelect, found my dryer, ordered the parts and had them within two days and it took me about 15 minutes to fix the dryer which will add about 3-4 years more life on it. Thank You PartsSelect My wife is even happier

Loud squeaking

Followed the instruction video and found it pretty easy. It took a little longer due to cleaning all the old lint out of the unit. Items changed fixed the problem and working like new.

Screaching

I have always been mechanically inclined so when my dryer started making noise I turned it into a family project. I found your website and studied what could be the problem. My 13 year old son and I took the dryer apart and found that it was the front drum bearing. i ordered the parts and my son did most of the work. Only had to take out two screws holding the top on and two holding the front. Vacumed out lint and followed directions on your site to replace parts. up and running in about 30 minutes.

Constant squealing noise

Unplug the dryer from the wall. I took the door off by removing the 4 screws that held it on. Removed the 2 screws in the top of the door frame to allow the top to come off. The top lifted off and slid to the left about an inch to release it from the panel. There are 2 screws in the cabinet on the top left and right. Remove these and the front panel will pop off. You can disconnect the closed door switch if you want to but not needed to complete the job. The worn drum bearing pops out with a little force. Attatch the new glides to the new drum bearing. Your old bearing may have only had 2 glides, mine did. I installed 4 as there are slots for 4 glides. Remove the punch-out disk at the top of the bearing. Starting with the bottom, snap the new bearing into place. Remove the old felt. I started at the middle of the lower drum bearing using the middle of the felt and pushed it into the slot provided. Making sure the drum is positioned correctly in the bearing, close the front panel and reinstall the screws. Putting the top on requires a little finesse, just work with it and it'll work for you. Reinstall the screws in the top of the door frame to the top panel. Reinstall door. Plug in and test. It may make a rubbing noice but this should go away after use and the glides get worn in.
