Question:

Looking to replace the green and the white glides but forget which went where, can you give me rough positioning?

Peter
Answer:

Hi Peter, you can position the white bearing slides at approximately 9 and 3 o’clock (across from each other). The green bearing slides can be placed at approximately 1 and 11 o’clock. I hope this helps you visualize it better!

Question:

how many of these do I need to order to replace the green drum slides and how many come in a package

Rachel
Answer:

Hi Rachel, the drum slides come in one per package, so you will need to order two of each. For the green drum slides you can order part number WE1M1067, and for the white you can order part number WE1M504. Although only your green drum slides need replacing at the moment, we strongly advise replacing both the green and the white (upper and lower) together for an even wear. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

No heat

Dryer would not heat. I found some troubleshooting tips on the internet and dug in. I had to remove the control panel, top, and then the drum. I was going to test the thermostats, but noticed right away that the heater coils were both broken. I thought I needed the whole heater assembly, but found out through parts-select that you could get just the coils and "re-string" it. I also noticed the drum slides were wore out. I ordered a new coil kit and slides and they arrived in two days. Took the heater assembly out of the dryer to re-string it. Was fairly straight forward if you just use common sense. You have to stretch the new coils pretty far and my arms were not long enough so my daughter helped me with that part. Re-strung it, re-assembled the dryer (after giving it a good thorough cleaning of the lint), put the new slides on, and fired it up. Works like a champ again. The instructions included were OK. But if you just looked at what you were doing you'd be fine. I would suggest to anyone that does not know or understand dryer wiring, to take a digital picture of the connections BEFORE you take them apart, as you do have to unhook three thermostats with multiple wires each, to get the heater assembly out.

Terrible screech/chirping sound from dryer

I followed the instruction of the first posting for this category and it worked perfectly...thanks for the nice detail...

- Upon receipt from PartSelect, placed new slides in Drum Bearing (this does not come together or as a kit - must order 4 slides AND Bearing separately for this dryer model)
- Loosened Top panel screws (2) from inside door area
- Slid top of dryer off - PAY attention to HOW the top comes out (tabs at the back and slots on the sides) or replacing the top could prove frustrating)
- Loosened Front panel screws (2) and GENTLY leaned the panel forward to access Drum Bearing - no need to REMOVE the front panel but be aware of the switch wires when leaning and the weight of the door if you did not remove that
- Removed old Drum Bearing
- Vacuumend interior of dryer cabinet (especially area leading down to vent)
- Snapped new Drum Bearing into place
- Re-secured Front panel paying attention to drum position to make sure everything still rotated properly and freely
- Reset Top panel - align back tabs first, gently pull forward just a bit until Top slips down over side tabs, then slide back into place and re-secure

Worked like a charm - took about 20 minutes...

Very loud squeeks coming from dryer

I had to remove all screws from the back of the dryer, control panel, and one side. Pulled top off. Took out two screws that held front door panel on. Disconnected 3 wires into door and completely removed door panel. Disconneted pink wire from heating element then slide belt off drum as I removed the drum. Pulled off the old completly worn out drum bearing sleeve and replaced it. Replaced drum slides as some were worn through. Had a little trouble getting belt back on when I reconnected everything but for 50 dollars in parts and shipping I have working dryer, so I would say it was well worth the effort.

Terrible squeak and slow drying

Open it up. Try to fix with duct tape. Test. Fail. Order parts.

Put slides on, open it up, put parts on door, align drum, close it up.

Start, smile and BRAG!!!!

Works faster, fluffer clothes and I'm a happy Mom because now I can run whenever and there is less wrinkles.

Rubbing/squeaking sound

We removed two screws to remove the top and two screws to remove the front. The dryer drum slides were easy to replace and the felt fit into a track. It was so easy and now my dryer is quiet again, no more rubbing/squeaking. I can't believe that was all we had to do, and for $60.00!!! I'll be back for future parts if needed. Thanks.

Load squeaking

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.

Dryer starts squeaking while operating

Open the dryer door and remove the two screws in the top of the door opening that hold the top of the dryer on, and then remove the dryer top. On the inside of the dryer, there are two screws that hold the front of the dryer on. Remove one screw from each side of the dryer near the top, and the front of the dryer will fall away. The drum slides are visible when you lean the front panel of the dryer out away from the drum. You can replace the drum slides without even removing the front of the dryer completely. Pull out the old drum slides and insert the new slides. Lift the drum slighly from the inside through the dryer door as you tilt the front back into place. Reinsert the screws holding the front of the dryer on and tighten. BE CAREFUL not to drop the screws or you may have to disassemble the dryer to get at the dropped screws. Reinstall the top of the dryer. It is a difficult fit which requres inserting into 3 tabs and sliding the top into place. Check that the top is flush before inserting and tightening the screws in the top of the door opening.

Dryer was making high pitched screeching noises when running.

I removed the top of the dryer by removing two screws located under the front lip of the dryer over the dryer door. Then I removed the dryer door by removing the screws holding the hinges. I then removed the front panel of the dryer by removing the two screws at the top inside two corners. I the removed the old Dryer Drum Slide. The Drum Bearings were almost completley worn off. I installed the (4) new Drum Bearings (2 Clear or White and 2 brown) the same way they were installed on the old Dryer Drum Slide on the new Dryer Drum Slide. I then installed the Dryer Drum Slide the way I removed the old one. Then I pulled the old Lower Front Drum Seal-Felt and replaced with the new one. Works like new!

Squeaking dryer!

A quick look inside verified that the drum slides were worn through but I also found that the plastic drum bearing that holds the slides was cracked in a couple different places. Ordered a new drum bearing, new slides, and decided to replace the felt seal as well since it looked pretty ratty. Parts arrived quickly after ordering and installation literally took 15-20 minutes. Purrs like a baby now. Steps: Unplug dryer. remove two screws which hold top of dryer to front. Remove two screws which hold front (door) to rest of unit. No need to disconnect wiring to front door, just make sure not to pull the wires out! Install new parts. Put it back together in reverse order.
