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
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.
First I watched the repair video on partselect.com and that really helped. It was really easy to replace the slides. I even ordered a new top bearing, old one was busted, and replaced it. Thank you for your help.
I replaced front and rear bearing.The rear I replaced because of cause and effect.There was some play so I am glad I replaced the rear too. Make sure you order drum slides. Ken
Take out the two screws holding the top on with the door open remove top and remove two small screws in top front corners. I replaced the 4 slides and the drum bearing without the new felt, do not do this it continued to squeek after it ran the first few times when i got the new felt a week later i installed it in ten minuites and the noise is gone. I think it cost around sixty dollars and my dryer is back in action. Make sure that you clean all of the lint out of the inside of your dryer I had alot of build up near the chute for the lint trap.
