It's so easy, a caveman can do it! Watch the video on how to take it apart and while you have it open, grab a shop vac and clean around the area where you don't normally see. I replaced the top bearing since it was worn out pretty bad. The drum slides ( white and green ) which comes in pairs, were already gone. Put everything back together and works like new. No more squelling and vibration that sounds like my dryer was ready to come apart. Very fast on shipment. Thanks

The dryer was very noisy when it would start. The drum had warn the pads out and the drum was riding on the drum bearing. It really isn't a bearing more of a big piece of plastic. On the bearing are 4 slides (2 white and 2 green). These are easy to replace if the bearing is good. I let mine go too long and wore part of the bearing off. To fix: UNPLUG! Open the door and find 2 screws facing upward screwed into the top. Remove these 2 screws and remove the top. Take notice of how it comes out of the dash. On each side of the front panel (from inside) there is a smaller screw with a bigger head, remove both of these. You can now lift the front panel away from the drum and pull the front panel right out. It would be a good time to take a shop vac and clean all the lint out of this. Mine was almost full. If you are changing the bearing it is held in place with clips built on the bearing. Remove and replace. Put on the new slides as well. There is a little tab on the bearing and a hole in the slide. put the hole over the tab. The green ones I put on the top and the whites on the outter sides. Put the bottom of the panel in first and line up the drum on the new bearing, replace the 2 big headed screws, line up the top in the dash and lower into position, replace the 2 screws up inside the door and you are done. I have no dryer experience and would rate this job on a scale of 1-10 to about a 3 or a 4. There were no real suprizes.
Took dryer apart replaced felt seal and the four drum slides put it back together works better now than when it was new!!!!!!
I looked online and It showed me a video to fix what was wrong and it couldn't have been easier!!! Saved myself at least $100 by doing it myself. The parts were the right ones and I will definitely look here first if anything else goes wrong with my washer/dryer.
Replacing the front slides is easy. Just buy the parts and pop them in. The rear drum bearing is also easy, and you do not have to spend $50. Once I had the parts in hand, which is an axle from the rear of the drum and a bearing sleeve from the rear of the dryer cabinet, it looked quite simple and it is. I went to a hardward store, bought a bronze bearing that fit the axle and the sleeve and a C-clip. Cut the bearing to the correct length with a pipe cutter, and retain over the axle with the clip. Grease it up, and put the dryer back together. Total cost, $5. It works great.
removed the front panel. Removed old bearing, felt and slides. Reversed operation. No problem
Parts were easy to take out and replace with the new ones.
I replaced the dryer bearing ( a plastic part) and all of the slides on the bearing. It now operates like new.
Poped the top off took out two screws, pulled the front off removed the old parts and put in the new ones.
Remove plug from wall....very important. Removed control panel, removed two screws holding to on from the front door access. Removed the two screws to the front panel, removed front panel. Removed old front bearing and felt. Install new slides into new bearing and installed felt into lower housing. Vacuumed front panel out and reassembled. Worked perfectly. Thanks to Parts Select, was told 3-5 days for delivery and was here in two. 86 dollars compared to 400 dryer. In this economic market...learn to fix it yourself. With the internet and Parts Select it is easy.
Removed top, removed front to expose front of drum. Replaced bearing with new slides and installed new felt. Cleaned out all the old lint from the exaust chute. This was surprisingly full. Everyone should pay attention here as this could lead to a fire.Overall the repair was easy, parts were correct. One note, order 2 each of the slides, I only ordered 1 each and had to reuse one old one and had to make a new one.
Piece of cake, mostly because of the nice exploded drawing that was on the site when ordering the parts, it was easy to identify what was needed and order it. I will never call a repair man again :-)
First opened cold Bud then pulled screwdriver out of toolbox. Removed all of six screws (quality workmanship of appliance) and put on 6 pieces of plastic (do they make metal any more??????).
First replaced the four drum slides,the lower front felt drum seal and the Drum bearing... Dryer still made LOUD screaching sound.. so I ordered and replaced the Rear drum bearing.And put a new drive belt on it being I had it all apart...Dryer now runs like its brand new.. My Dryer is over 10 years old. Cheaper to fix than replace... As far as Installation goes Was easy...Just watch the repair video or read the other post.. very helpfull...
Took off control panel,top,leftside facing door,and,door panel. Replace the 2 green and 2 white slides, the front drum bearing, the rear bearing and groundind strap behind the heating element,and new belt. Put back together,run's and sounds like new. The hardest part was putting drum bearing in inside and backside of drum by yourself. Replace belt with left side panel off. Easy to get on that way.
