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...

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.

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.
