Dryer had become excessively noisey

Watched the video on a different style of dryer so taking apart a bit of a challenge. The old Front Drum Bearing was completely gone on left side and a challenge to pry it off the front dryer panel. replaced felt seal and front drum bearing. noticed that there was 4 places for new bearing slides. the ones i ordered were white and green but did not know why or which one went where as no explanation with packaging. also only ordered one of each and so now had to stop and try and find two more. ! hour later i had brought back a tupperware lid that was thick enough and stated could go to 194 degrees F. i cut out one replacement for green bearing and reused the old white one since it was in good shape from right side of drum bearing. i went back to this website and noticed in the comments section for drum bearing that someone stated the green bearing slides go in at positions 11 and 1 and the white at 10 and 2. they are different materials and having more weight of drum on green now made sense. put machine back together and told neice to keep eyes and ears on dryer thru cycle. she did not even know it was running just in next room.

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

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.

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.

Screaching

I have always been mechanically inclined so when my dryer started making noise I turned it into a family project. I found your website and studied what could be the problem. My 13 year old son and I took the dryer apart and found that it was the front drum bearing. i ordered the parts and my son did most of the work. Only had to take out two screws holding the top on and two holding the front. Vacumed out lint and followed directions on your site to replace parts. up and running in about 30 minutes.

Constant squealing noise

Unplug the dryer from the wall. I took the door off by removing the 4 screws that held it on. Removed the 2 screws in the top of the door frame to allow the top to come off. The top lifted off and slid to the left about an inch to release it from the panel. There are 2 screws in the cabinet on the top left and right. Remove these and the front panel will pop off. You can disconnect the closed door switch if you want to but not needed to complete the job. The worn drum bearing pops out with a little force. Attatch the new glides to the new drum bearing. Your old bearing may have only had 2 glides, mine did. I installed 4 as there are slots for 4 glides. Remove the punch-out disk at the top of the bearing. Starting with the bottom, snap the new bearing into place. Remove the old felt. I started at the middle of the lower drum bearing using the middle of the felt and pushed it into the slot provided. Making sure the drum is positioned correctly in the bearing, close the front panel and reinstall the screws. Putting the top on requires a little finesse, just work with it and it'll work for you. Reinstall the screws in the top of the door frame to the top panel. Reinstall door. Plug in and test. It may make a rubbing noice but this should go away after use and the glides get worn in.

Squeaking noise coming from the front of the dryer

First I took the dryer apart to see what the problem was and found that the felt dryer guide had come off it's mount and was broken. Next I saw that the dryer glides were worn away and if it was used much more it would have ruined the whole housing. I ordered the parts from parts select and to my pleasant surprise they were there in two days. The glides sit right over the door and just slip right in. The felt goes on the bottom under the door and sits in a plastic guide in which the felt is placed I tied the ends of the felt down on the ends with a piece of small wire to make sure they stay in place. It's been two weeks since my repair and there are no problems.
