Dryer was squeaking terribly when running

- Removed two screws at top left and right of door.
- Removed top dryer panel
- Removed two screws holding front panel in place
- Noticed drum slide was missing because front drum bearing was worn away and slide had fallen off.
- Went ahead and removed drum to replace rear drum bearing (probably not needed; should have disassembled it first to discover this). Would have been better to pull drum first (loosen idler pulley and release belt, pull drum straight out) instead of attempting to unscrew bearing. Be sure to note how the idler pulley is set.
- vacuumed tons of lint up
- Replaced bearing (needed a second person for this; drum too big to reach around. be sure to pre-thread the bearing)
- Ordered front drum bearing, waiting to repair it now, should be good after this.

Noisy dryer

We had a squeeking sound coming from our dryer which I felt was probably the belt. When I removed the front of the unit and saw the condition of the slodes and drum bearin, I ordered a set from PartsSelect.com. It only took about 20 minutes to repale the parts, and 5 of that was figuring out the bearing just "snaps on" (I was afraid to just yank it for fear of breaking something else). Probably saved like $75 or so between the parts markup and a service call by doing it myself.

Loud chirp squeak

The parts came very quickly, and they were the exacxt parts which made installation very easy.
Just open the dryer door, there are 2 screws to remove right above the dryer door that holds the top plate of the dryer. slide the top of the dryer top off by pulling up and ouyt towards you. There are 2 screws that hold the front of the dryer, remove the 2 screws and the front of the dryer will come out towards you. The drum will fall a litttle towards you.
I let the dryer front lean on my leg and snapped out the bearing and drum slides replaced it with the new one. Reverse the order of taking it apart
Now my dryer sounds as quiet as the first day I bought it.

Scraping sound when runing

Removed top. Removed 2 screws holding front panel. Swung panel out to access felt and bearing. Pulled out felt and replaced. Pulled of drum bearing and installed new one.

Good time to vacume out all the lint.

NOTE: Order 4 SLIDE WH with the drum bearing. When you order the bearing it automatically orders you 2 Slides, but all 4 should be replaced.

Dryer was sqeaking

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.

Dryer started screeching.

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.

Loud screaching sound

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...

Dryer made a bad grinding sound sometimes

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.

A noise coming from the dryer

I first unplugged the dryer and moved to an open area to work on it. I then removed the three screws that held the access plate to disconnect the drive belt from the motor. Second I removed the two screws that held the top cover on then I removed it and set it aside. Third I removed the control station the thing with all the knobs on it that was about 11 screws (there were a mix of different types of screws some were Hex, Torx and Square tip). Fourth I removed the two screws that held the front door assembly on. I did not need to disconnect any wires to the front door.Fith I removed the Drum assembly by lifting and pressing outward on the outside walls of the frame I then carried the drum and set it on secure surface and then removed the three screws that held the bearing in from the inside. After cleaning the dryer after all components were removed I then removed the heating element that holds the bearing sleeve. I then started putting things back together in reverse order until it came time for the front door upper slide assembly that came off pretty easily it just clipped on I put the white and red sliders on first then I put the whole thing on it just clipped on then I put the front door on and screwed it on and finished putting things back on in reveres order. Then plugged it up and gave it test run and no noise and it runs great I hope for another ten years.

Front bearing and slides worn

First looked up on Google how to correct the squeak. Almost got into an internet trap by a you tube video looking to seel the slides for $20.00 (white) & $24.00 (green) each but luckily found your website. I originally ordered just the slides (first order) then aferwards ordered everything. Replacement parts fit right in without any struggle.

Loud squeaking noise

Order and repair went fine. Just followed installation instructions already posted. However, after the repair it would overheat and shut off. Tested thermostats and they were good. Forums repeatedly talked about air flow problems but I knew it was clean. Ended up putting foam weather stripping on inside of front panel where it meets duct of squirrel fan and that fixed it.

Dryer drum was squeaking.

Looked up the problem and solution on the web and,ah-ha, drum slides should be the cure. Easy to install, . Back to the internet to discover that after the slides, the bearing and felt liner were the next likely culprits. Again easy install, but to no avail. Calling in the pros.
