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 squeaking, vibrating.

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.

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!!!
