Noise from ge 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.

Loud screaching sound

i read in the forums about what was wrong and ordered the parts--they really need to tell you there are four bearing slides to be replaced-- you have to order singly. other than that - my grandson could repair it and the silence really is golden

CustomerMichael from Parker CO

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.

CustomerKen from Sussex WI

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.

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.

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.
