Watched your video, very helpful, not exactly the same unit but all the essentials were there. The only step that was time consuming was the belt replacement with tensioner. Also needed help with the rear bearing installation. Either the drum in the video was smaller or the technician was a gorilla, couldn't reach both inside and outside as required.

I read over other people's repair stories and it seemed like something I could do myself, so I gave it a shot.First I unplugged the dryer and wrestled it onto my back porch, because I don't have room to work in my laundry room.1. I removed the door by unscrewing the 4 hinge screws.2. I removed the 2 screws at the top of the recess the door fits into.3. I removed the top of the dryer.4. There were 2 inner screws holding the front in place (which is why the top had to come off, because there is no other way to get at those screws...and they are near the top of the dryer at each front corner)...I removed these to take the front off. I had to use a flat-tip screwdriver to pry it out at the bottom, but it wasn't very hard to do. I also disconnected the wires, which was easy, but just be sure to note how they hook together so that you get them hooked back together correctly.5. I removed the old felt, noting how it was positioned so I could install the new felt correctly.6. I removed the old drum bearing. It was cracking on the top of it, and all 4 slides were totally gone, so I'm glad I ordered all 4 of them!7. I cleaned everything up and found .37 cents in change!8. I installed the new drum bearing...it just clips into place.9. I installed the 4 slides. I had watched a video here on how to do that, and it really is super-easy. There was just a bit of one green/gray slide left, so that told me which went where.10. I installed the new felt.11. I reconnected the wires and put the front on.12. I put the top on.13. I put the door back on.14. I wrestled the dryer back inside and plugged it in.15. I turned it on to test it...it worked, and NO MORE SQUEAK!!My dryer has been working great ever since. I would like to note that I bought this dryer used, so I really am not sure of how old it is...so I guessed. It seemed to be in good condition, and the person I bought it from plugged it in and let me see that it worked...and it didn't squeak then. It started squeaking about halfway through the first load of clothes I did. Still, I got it at a good price and luckily it didn't cost too awful much to get the parts needed to silence that squeak.I am really thankful that there is a site like this to help people who might not be able to afford a repair other than to do it themselves. I know some just don't like to pay the high cost of repair, but some (like me) simply don't have the money for that. So thank you VERY MUCH for all of your help...it is greatly appreciated!!
Removed front, top & sides of dryer. Replaced front slide by pulling off old and inserting new one. Located bearings, and replaced them. Reassembled dryer. I received the parts I ordered quickly and each part fit and resolved the problem. I will continue to use this company for parts as needed.
Just like the other stories, remove the top and front of the dryer, replace the bearing and slides (or slides only if needed). I ordered only the slides, but also needed the bearing because I didn't realize the drum had worn through the bearing already.
removed front door, removed front panel unclipped old drum bearing installed new one installed four new drum slides which were completely worn away. the slides are different two different pairs. i fold out which ones go where from one of i guys on your web site only one of them mentioned two white and two gray where they went. thank you parts came fast fit like a glove dryer is perfect. price was right to.
2 screws, lift the top off and snapped in new drum bearing then added the 4 drum slides and placed top back on dryer, replaced 2 screws. Piece of cake!
remove the 2 screws going into the top, remove itremove the 2 screws going to the front panel, set it aside install parts and reverse order. very easy to do
Disassembled and removed drum according to directions on this site. Ordered parts and replaced per instructions - - easy as unscrewing and rescrewing old bearing assembly. Hardest thing was putting the belt on - as I did it fromthe front side and the recommendations are to access from the back kick plate. I did not want to wreck the vent tube so I left the dryer in place and did the entire job from the front.
I was teaching my associate how to do this repair so I showed him how to take off the top of the dryer. Then I showed him how to replace the drum slides. I had him clean out the dryer since we had it apart, and I also showed him how to remove the drum and then reinstall it. This was a very easy repair, and he learned a lot that he otherwise would not have known. Thanks for getting the parts to me so quickly. Rob from Clarks Summit.
First I got the front bearing, found out I needed the slides too. It was binding at first, so I undid an earlier misadjustment I made (on the back drum mount). and it works!
I took out a whooping four (4) screws, two that held down the top to the front panel then two screws that attached the side panels (at the top) to the front panel, raised the drum from the inside, leaned the front panel foreword, popped out the old slide (there was only one left), installed the four new slides & put it back together. That's pretty much all there was to it, vary simple.
First with a screwdriver,I removed the two screws and lifting the top and the front panel of the dyer off. The worn parts were easily removed and the new parts just snapped into place. I then just put the front and top panels back on and the whole job took less than 20 minutes to complete. The next day I received a letter from GE that the warranty would expire and would I like to buy an extention. Thanks to PartsSelect I saved a lot doing it myself.
I was actually able to do the repair based on the other repair stories listed on this site. Their instructions were clear and concise which made the job a breeze. The last time I had a repairman come out the bill was $95.00 to disconnect and reconnect a wire. For less than $50.00 I was able to do a much bigger job for a whole lot less. The best part of it all: my wife thinks I'm a genius.
Took top and front panel off. Pulled top bearing shroud off, replaced and installed the slides on new top bearing. Installed felt gasket on the bottom piece of lower shroud. Installed new lamp and put back together to check out. Dryer working great now. Should have changed the belt but it is not squelling so it is fine.
