The drum bearing and slides worn out

The dryer literally ate my clothes!! We took the front cover off the dryer, removed the old parts and snapped in the bearing, felt seal and slides and now it just dries....it doesn't eat anything.

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.

CustomerJustin from Genoa IL

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.

CustomerThomas from Massapequa Park NY

Squeaking noise coming from the front of the dryer

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.

Squeeking as drum turned.

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.

CustomerAllen from Mission Viejo CA

Dryer was screeching loudly with any load.

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!
