CustomerDUANE from Kutztown PA

Loud banging

When I first ordered the part, I did not know I needed 4 slides for the bearing. 2 of my slides had disintegrated. Make sure you have 2 good white slides, and 2 good blue slides, or order them with the bearing, or you will pay another $7.50 for shipping.
Once I got all of the parts and put it together using only common sense, I found it was binding tight. So I realigned the back of the drum that I had messed up while I was trying to diagnose the problem.
Parts Select definitely helped with diagnosis, through this comment section.
Thanks!

CustomerJeffrey from Kelso WA

Loud scraping noise when dryer is running. Also clothing would get stuck around the drum.

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.

Noises during cycle

I was actually able to do the repair based on the other repair stories listed on this site. Their instructions were clear and concise which made the job a breeze. The last time I had a repairman come out the bill was $95.00 to disconnect and reconnect a wire. For less than $50.00 I was able to do a much bigger job for a whole lot less. The best part of it all: my wife thinks I'm a genius.

Dryer was shaking and vibrating all over the floor

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.

Dryer making loud noise

I followed other users comments and it was simple-four screws to unloosen the front panel and lift up the top and access the drum bearing. Two people makes it much easier to hold the door etc. Especially helpful was one's user info on where the two different slides went which was not well depicted on the drawings. The drum bearing snapped out with some pressure using your hands and snapped back in easily. The noise is gone!!!
