This is a drum bearing slide, also known as bearing drum slide, glide, or pad, that is fitted to a dryer. The slide functions by supporting the front drum as the drum rotates. This is a white plastic part that is sourced directly from the manufacturer. Although the part is sold individually, it is recommended to check the other slide because they often wear at the same rate, and should be replaced at the same time. The drum bearing slide may need to be replaced if the dryer is not tumbling, takes longer than usual to dry clothes, or is noisy.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
This front drum bearing helps your dryer operate as quietly as possible. It is about 10 inches in height and 22 inches in width. It is made entirely out of plastic and is white in color. If your dryer model has a light in it, remove the light bulb before removing the bearing because it will hit the bulb and potentially shatter it. This is an OEM part and is sold individually. Please note that although the slides are not included in this part, the drum slides should also be replaced when replacing this bearing.
First I removed the front and top panel to the dryer. I then popped of the drum bearing, popped the new one on, added slides and put the top and sides back on. Turned on the dryer and it works just like new. All for less than a repair man would come out on a call for.

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.
First I removed the 2 screws that hold the lid down. Then I pulled the lid off. Then I removed the 2 screws that hold the front of the dryer in place. Then I lifted the drum a little and pulled the front cabinet out a little so I could see the drum slides. I removed the bad drum slides and installed the new ones. I then put everything back together and turned on the dryer. The squeeky noise was gone.
The dryer made a loud squeal and I shut it off immediately. 1 - Unplug the dryer2 - Took the top off and the front off the dryer3 - Removed the 4 Front Dryer Drum Slides that were worn all the way through4 - Pulled the bunched up Felt 5 - Vacuumed out the inside of the dryer -Very Important6 - Put the drum slides in and felt piece7 - Put the front on top back on 8 - Worked great
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.
Replased drum slide, and wear bearings.Very easy repair, and the squeeking is gone!!Thanks for the easy ordering and fast delivery!!
Unplug the dryer. Remove top panel (remove two screws on the upper inside edge of the dryer door). Lift the front panel from front (tabs and slots at the back) and lift off. Remove the front panel (remove a screw from each side - top/front). Front panel sits on two feet at the bottom, tilt it forward from the top and lift it up (careful not to damage the electrical connection at the bottom left side). I found the dryer had another damaged part (plastic guide that the Slide WH and the Drum Slides connected to was badly worn). After ordering the additional part I attached the slides (white and gray) to the guide. Set the front panel back on the two feet and tilt it back into place (you'll need to slightly raise the drum back into position - easy). Replace the two screws that connect the front panel. Replace the top cover. The whole repair took less than 1/2 an hour including the time it took to vacuum out the dust. Total cost, about $35!
remove move 2 screws holding top of dryer down.then remove two top screw holding front panel on so i could get to were my slide bearing where at poped them out and slide in new ones then put it all back together that was it todd e line eaton ohio usa
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!
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.
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.
remove to screws in front to take of top. Then remove two screws holding the face on. change parts re assebmle. extra hands nice for holding drum while remounting face. Nice and quiet now.
