Front Drum Bearing

Part Number 960316

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.

Question:

My dryer is making a terribly loud noise when I first turn it on. Is there a kit or something I should get for it? Ive been looking at your parts list and if I change the top drum bearing I think I will need the drum slide bearings. How many do I need and which ones should I order??? Are there any other parts I should order to stop the noise? Thanks for the help!

Nina
Answer:

Hi Nina, great question. Changing your front bearings would be your first step as worn ones can cause loud noises throughout the drying cycle. To change the upper bearings, you will need 2 of WE1M504 and 2 of WE1M1067. If you decide to also change the rear bearing which would be the second most common cause for the noise, the part would be WE25M40. Let us know if you have any further questions.

Question:

I bought and am currently replacing the rear bearings. Since the dryer is already pulled apart how can I tell if I should replace the front bearings or the support?

Calista
Answer:

Hello Calista, thanks for getting in touch. You will know to replace the front bearings or the support if you see any visible damage. Wear is normal, but if the parts are damaged in any way they should be replaced. I hope this helps!

Question:

I’m changing all the bearing slides on my dryer how many do I need and why are they different colors?

Brent
Answer:

Hi Brent, the bearing slides are different colors to tell the difference between them. If you are replacing the front bearing slides in your dryer you will need 2 lower slides WE1M504, which are white. You will also need two upper slides WE1M1067, which are green. Good luck with this repair.

Loud noise while running.

This took less than 10 minutes to complete. 1) pull off the top of the dryer and remove the two screws that attach the front panel to the side panels. Once you pull the front panel towards you, away from the side panels, you can remove the front bearing. Be sure to be careful not to pull apart the wiring on the left side of the front panel. If you do, it is easy re-attached by hand. The front roller bearing of he drum can be removed by hand. Simply pull upward, with a steady pressure, on the bearing. It will snap out with this gradual pressure. The slide can be inserted by hand, with the two gray slide at 11 and 1 o'clock and the wite slide at 10 and 2 o'clock. The new bearing will snap into place by hand. Carefully insert the light bulb into the hole in the top of the new bearing whle snapping into place. The web site provides a good diagram that illustrates the various pieces and assembly. Once the bearing is in place, lift the dryer drum and set on top of the bearing as you re-attach the front panel to the side panels with the screws removed earlier. Replace the top by snapping back into place. Less than 10 minutes.

Loud noise and vibration

It's so easy, a caveman can do it! Watch the video on how to take it apart and while you have it open, grab a shop vac and clean around the area where you don't normally see. I replaced the top bearing since it was worn out pretty bad. The drum slides ( white and green ) which comes in pairs, were already gone. Put everything back together and works like new. No more squelling and vibration that sounds like my dryer was ready to come apart. Very fast on shipment. Thanks

Very noisy squeaky dryer

The dryer was very noisy when it would start. The drum had warn the pads out and the drum was riding on the drum bearing. It really isn't a bearing more of a big piece of plastic. On the bearing are 4 slides (2 white and 2 green). These are easy to replace if the bearing is good. I let mine go too long and wore part of the bearing off. To fix: UNPLUG! Open the door and find 2 screws facing upward screwed into the top. Remove these 2 screws and remove the top. Take notice of how it comes out of the dash. On each side of the front panel (from inside) there is a smaller screw with a bigger head, remove both of these. You can now lift the front panel away from the drum and pull the front panel right out. It would be a good time to take a shop vac and clean all the lint out of this. Mine was almost full. If you are changing the bearing it is held in place with clips built on the bearing. Remove and replace. Put on the new slides as well. There is a little tab on the bearing and a hole in the slide. put the hole over the tab. The green ones I put on the top and the whites on the outter sides. Put the bottom of the panel in first and line up the drum on the new bearing, replace the 2 big headed screws, line up the top in the dash and lower into position, replace the 2 screws up inside the door and you are done. I have no dryer experience and would rate this job on a scale of 1-10 to about a 3 or a 4. There were no real suprizes.

Dryer screeched when running

Dryer started making screeching noises while running, got progressively worse. Without taking it apart first, I ordered a front drum bearing and slides because this site said it fixed the problem the majority of the time. The site said replace the slides in pairs, but there are actually four. I picked up 2 more at a local appliance store, at roughly twice the price. Turned out I didn't need th replace the plastic piece called drum bearing, just the 4 slides that clip onto it. It is really easy to get the top and front off with just a phillips screwdriver. I did not check the rear center main bearing, as it requred removing the drum. The squealing lessended but it still was bad. Took it back apart and pulled the drum, and fount the rear main bearing bad. I found one at the same local store for only 2 bucks more than on this site. This was a bit more of a hassle, you really need two people to get it mounted to the drum. Tip-pre thread the holes with the self tapping screws, it makes it easier to get it together. There was a bit of lint build up under the drum heating element cover, so it was good to clean that out. Also blew all the dirt out of the motor with compressed air and shop vac. There was a access panel on back to get to the motor and belt tensioner. Got the dryer all buttoned up and now it runs nice and quiet.

The clothes were getting caught and dryer was squeaking

I looked online and It showed me a video to fix what was wrong and it couldn't have been easier!!! Saved myself at least $100 by doing it myself. The parts were the right ones and I will definitely look here first if anything else goes wrong with my washer/dryer.

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

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.
