The dryer literally ate my clothes!! We took the front cover off the dryer, removed the old parts and snapped in the bearing, felt seal and slides and now it just dries. . . . It doesn't eat anything.
I order the parts needed to replace the slides, the felt ,and the bearing on a Sunday afternoon. The parts arrived on Tuesday even though I used regular shipping. I followed the instructions posted by another customer. It was extremely easy and only took me about fifteen minutes. My only problem was that I needed 2 each of the front slide and the rear slide, and I unknowingly only ordered 1 of each. I order the other 2 on Tuesday via regular shipping and they arrived on Wed. AMAZING!!!!
When we first heard the screeching i thought right away that it was the belt. we ordered a new one and after i replaced it the dryer was still just as loud. I wished i went here first. Right away i found others with the same problem, did the same repair which was just taking 2 screws out, sliding the top and front panel off(watch for the electric wire connected to the panel) and replace a couple of plastic slides. now it is better than ever.
First and most important - safety. Either unplug the dryer or shut off the circuit breaker. Remove the two screws to the top cover. To locate these screws just open the door as they are located at the top of the door opening. Remove screws and lift up the top cover and carefully pull towards you. Place to the side away from the work area. This now will expose two screws within the side panels holding the front door and front housing. Remove the two screws, lift up and out to remove front housing assemble. Be careful when you remove as the wiring to the light fixture is included. Just remove cover and place side ways close to the dryer.Remove the bulb then remove the white plastic drum bearing (snaps out or in when replacing with a flat screwdriver).Prior to installing the new drum bearing install the four white slide strips on top of the drum bearing. Review the old parts for comparison. These actually act as the bushings between the drum bearing and the clothes drum. Please keep in mind the slides do not come with the drum bearing when ordering. You must order seperately. Once the new assemble is snapped into the metal front cover/door now you can re-assemble. While you have the drum exposed it's a good time to check the belt for wear. Sometimes a worn or ripped belt can be the same symptom of the thumpimg sound. For the assemble just reverse all the earlier steps. Plug cord back in or turn on the circuit breaker and run the dryer. You should be good to go for more years of service.
Did repair as per the video except I did not disconnect wires, just swung front panel around. Only complaint...discovered parts were much more expensive than other sites.
Mine is actually a twofold thing, bc I diagnosed the problem Bfore taking the dryer apart and looking. Highly recommend taking it apart Before ordering the parts. I started out replacing the belt,bc I had read that it makes most of the noise. While replacing the belt, I noticed the bearing, slides, and felt were all messed up. Still, I felt it would work with just the belt.WRONG! It made it through one load before it broke the belt. Fortunately, I had kept the other belt, and ordered the four other parts. I was able to do it without actually unhooking the door from the housing. I just laid it back against it. No tools were needed to replace any of the new parts. I did get a friend to help me put the old belt (which was still in good shape actually) back on. He has a right arm that works! Oh, forgot to mention. This took less than an hour and I only have my non dominant arm that works due to neck surgery a month ago. Repairing a dryer is easy when you watch the videos. Just don't get intimidated! You can do it!????
I followed the instructions given in the video I watched when ordering the parts. Very easy.
First I watched the repair video on partselect.com and that really helped. It was really easy to replace the slides. I even ordered a new top bearing, old one was busted, and replaced it. Thank you for your help.
I replaced front and rear bearing.The rear I replaced because of cause and effect.There was some play so I am glad I replaced the rear too. Make sure you order drum slides. Ken
Disconnect Power from the DryerRemove 2 screws that held the top on the dryer.Removed the 2 screw that held the front on the dryer.Unsnap bearing from front panel. Snap new bearing in placeand reassemble. Turn power back on.When ordering drum bearing also order 1 set of Front DryerDrum Slides and 1 set of Drum Slides. You need both. Alsoyou should probably check the rear bearing. This would saveyou time and shipping. I didn't and it cost me anothershipping charge as well as a couple of extra days downtime.
I first unplugged the unit, opened the top, disconnected and took off the control panel, took off the front panel to determine the source of the squeaking noise coming from the Dryer. I saw that 3 of the 4 Front Drum Glides were gone and the drum had worn away significant amounts of plastic from the Top Bearing Assembly. I purchased the Top Bearing Assembly and a set of 4 Front Drum Glides. Disassembled the damaged parts and reassembled with the new replacement parts. The reassembly took less than 20 minutes. I plugged in the Dryer and viola! It works as good as new.
Our gas GE "Eterna" King Sized capacity dryer started squeaking one day. I was suprised since the dryer was only a few years old, but assumed some grit had invaded and worn a bearing in the belt tensioner. My wife and I have three kids, so we use the dryer daily. The sound got louder quickly and finally it was so loud I had do something. After unplugging the appliance I took the top off the dryer (two screws in the top of the door jam) and the front off (two screws at the top of each corner) and in doing so saw that the drum bearing, which is just a round plastic"shelf" on which the tumbler drum rides, suspended over the door, was worn through. There were four little "slides" on the bearing surface, and all but one was worn down to dust. I ordered the replacement bearing and slides (two white, I didn't know I also needed two green and have since bought them too) from Part Select and they arrived in about three days. In the meantime I re-assembled the dryer easily and we did use it once or twice, shrieking. When the parts came in I installed them in about 20 minutes, screwing the new bearing onto the rear surface of the front panel, right over the opening for the dryer door. The dryer has worked perfectly since. I used one Phillips head screwdriver for the whole job and paid about $50.00 for the parts. I work in an office and I travel, and when I was a kid I fixed my own cars and stuff, but I'm no appliance repairma! Nevertheless, this was easy! I assume I saved at least $100. The dryer works perfectly and more importantly, it's quiet again!
Dryer was making a horrible noise. When I took it apart I noticed that the from side dryer bearing was ruined. Ordered the part with the slide bars and replaced...Works great...
Pulled the unit all apart to replace the rear drum bearing. Also replaced the front bearing. Works like brand new. Easier then I thought
