Sold individually. There are 2 per dryer. They attach to the outer-most sides of the bearing. Manufacture recommends to replace both slides at the same time.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I order the parts needed to replace the slides, the felt ,and the bearing on a Sunday afternoon. The parts arrived on Tuesday even though I used regular shipping. I followed the instructions posted by another customer. It was extremely easy and only took me about fifteen minutes. My only problem was that I needed 2 each of the front slide and the rear slide, and I unknowingly only ordered 1 of each. I order the other 2 on Tuesday via regular shipping and they arrived on Wed. AMAZING!!!!

When we first heard the screeching i thought right away that it was the belt. we ordered a new one and after i replaced it the dryer was still just as loud. I wished i went here first. Right away i found others with the same problem, did the same repair which was just taking 2 screws out, sliding the top and front panel off(watch for the electric wire connected to the panel) and replace a couple of plastic slides. now it is better than ever.
Took dryer apart replaced felt seal and the four drum slides put it back together works better now than when it was new!!!!!!
removed the front panel. Removed old bearing, felt and slides. Reversed operation. No problem
Unplugged power. removed 2 screws to take of top cover. once inside removed 2 more screws to slide front panel of. I first replaced slides on front panel. I then lift drum and installed new belt. Only trick is to make sure you wrap belt around tension arm pully properly. Basically a very easy job
Unplugged power to dryer. Opened door and removed the two screws that hold the top panel on. Removed top panel and set aside. Then removed the two screws that hold the front panel secure and leaned front panel towards me. Replaced parts with absolutely no tools. Reverse steps to assemble dryer. The videos are very informative and give you the confidence you need to do it yourself.
I first watched the video provided on the web site to confirm the steps to repair. Simply remove two screws and lift off the top to gain access to the two screws that hold the front. I didn't need to unplug the wiring harness - just fold the dryer front sideways 90 degrees and have plenty room to work. From there it is just unplug the old parts and plug in the new. Everyone else may know this, but there are TWO green bearing slides and TWO white slides on my model. I only ordered one of each the first time. The second time is much easier!!
I simply followed the how to videos. No need to deviate from those.
Watched all the videos replacing the described that were noted when I looked up the noises my drier was making then after watching all the videos i got my tools and took apart the drier and confirmed the parts were indeed warn out and needed replacing I then listed all the parts I needed and ordered them took a few days to get the parts but once I had them I put the drier back together now my 12 year old drier runs like new
I followed the step by step instructions provided by Video! Very informative, easy to understand and follow! If I can do it myself, anyone can! Thank you !
Simple. Followed the well organized instructions on the youtube video and it was done in a jiffy! Saved me hundreds of dollars since I didn't need a repair man and my purchased/replaced parts prevented me from having to buy a new dryer!! Thank you!!
Did repair as per the video except I did not disconnect wires, just swung front panel around. Only complaint...discovered parts were much more expensive than other sites.
Removed the star bit screws on the top of the control panel then removed the front by opening the door and removing the screws in the upper corners of the door jam. I then removed the top which exposed the drum slides. NOTE: This model requires 4 drum slides and NOT two as specified in the video.
Mine is actually a twofold thing, bc I diagnosed the problem Bfore taking the dryer apart and looking. Highly recommend taking it apart Before ordering the parts. I started out replacing the belt,bc I had read that it makes most of the noise. While replacing the belt, I noticed the bearing, slides, and felt were all messed up. Still, I felt it would work with just the belt.WRONG! It made it through one load before it broke the belt. Fortunately, I had kept the other belt, and ordered the four other parts. I was able to do it without actually unhooking the door from the housing. I just laid it back against it. No tools were needed to replace any of the new parts. I did get a friend to help me put the old belt (which was still in good shape actually) back on. He has a right arm that works! Oh, forgot to mention. This took less than an hour and I only have my non dominant arm that works due to neck surgery a month ago. Repairing a dryer is easy when you watch the videos. Just don't get intimidated! You can do it!????
I followed the instructions given in the video I watched when ordering the parts. Very easy.
