The dryer was squeaking like a recently castrated banshee

I first removed four screws above the door opening to lift off the top, then removed two screws, near the top, inside the front, to remove the front. There I found that 2 grey plastic and one white plastic anti-friction strips were worn to nothing (even the large plastic bezel that incorporates the light was starting to wear away, from just a few days!).

When I went to put the front back on, i couldn't get the lip of the drum to ride properly on the felt. In fiddling with it, the drum fell off the rear bearing, too, so I put it back on.

So I ordered new felt, two white and two grey strips (I didn't know if 1 or 2 were in each $8 "kit"--only one per kit), a spare belt--just in case--and some bulbs.

Putting the strips on was easy--15 seconds each. Putting on the felt took all of 20 seconds. I spent more time scraping off the dust and vacuuming things out!

The drum fit over the felt quite easily now, and when I ran it, it was wonderfully quiet. For a minute! Then, it started making a new, grinding noise!

I had a Sears repairman friend come over, and he found that a small platic bushing had fallen off the rear bearing element. Once he put that in place, it all worked perfectly. Beautifully quiet!

While cleaning dryer for low exhaust discharge pressure, I observed one slide (green) 98% worn down, the other three 90 to 95% worn and felt drum seal broke in half.

Opening the dryer door and removed the two screws located at the top of the opening. Pop off top lid of dryer by lifting up on front, and slide forward. I needed to break it loose by prying it up with a screw driver (use light pressure, be careful not to bend/scrape top), as it was first time every being removed. Remove two screws at top of front panel, hold up drum, and pull front panel forward. Unplug electrical cable to door, and removed front panel. Removed and replaced all four slides (2 Green slides & 2 Clear slides). Removed felt drum seal and replaced by lightly pushing in slots (couple of very light pushes using a screw driver was also needed). Placed front panel back on slots at bottom of dryer (REMEBER TO PLUG IN DOOR SWITCH), lifting (lightly) up on drum, and push in place, replaced all parts in reverse order. Top was a little tricky getting back on, but with a little push it snapped in place. Plugged in dryer performed test run everything worked perfect. Thanks to PartsSelect for their quick response to my order, you are definitely on my favorites listing for any future repairs and/or help.

Dryer squeaking, vibrating.

UNPLUG DRYER FIRST.Open dryer door find 2 screws at top of dryer door opening ( pointing upward). Remove screws and pop top panel of dryer up and remove it. Remove 2 screws near top of front panel (on the inside facing toward you). Careful not to drop them down into dryer interior. Pop front panel with door attached forward by tilting toward you. then lift off bottom tabs and turn panel / door assembly to the side. Careful not to pull wires at bottom loose. Carefully pop "Drum Bearing" off. This is the half moon shaped part that the "Drum Slides" (2) clear and(2) "green" pop on to. Replace drum bearing. Put new slides (4) on drum bearing. Replace felt seal. Place front panel back on dryer by carefully lifing dryer drum up while pushing front panel onto dryer. This allows the drum to "sit" on the felt seal. Put screws back onto top of front panel. Replace top panel , which can be tricky, by aligning tabs near contol panel with slots on top panel then lowering front of top panel into place. Then put screws back near top of door opening to secure top panel. Test dryer by turning off the heat on the heat setting knob and allow dryer to run for a time. Then try it with some clothes and heat. If it is still making noise then check rear bearing/bushing. Mine was fine and this repair fixed the issue. By the way, all but one of my 4 slides were worn to nothing and the drum had been "eating" into the "drum bearing making it paper thin in several areas. The felt was worn out also. This allowed the drum to settle down and gap at top which allowed clothes and dryer sheets to get caught between drum and dryer cabinet.

Dryer making loud noise

I followed other users comments and it was simple-four screws to unloosen the front panel and lift up the top and access the drum bearing. Two people makes it much easier to hold the door etc. Especially helpful was one's user info on where the two different slides went which was not well depicted on the drawings. The drum bearing snapped out with some pressure using your hands and snapped back in easily. The noise is gone!!!
