The drum bearing and slides worn out

The dryer literally ate my clothes!! We took the front cover off the dryer, removed the old parts and snapped in the bearing, felt seal and slides and now it just dries....it doesn't eat anything.

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.

CustomerJustin from Genoa IL

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.

CustomerJames from Gulfport MS

Loud screeching noise when dryer was running.

Removed top of dryer, removed the front housing. Cleaned the interior of dryer cabinet and all the build-up of lint and other matter with shop vac. Placed front housing on work table and removed the old drum bearing and felt seal. Cleaned the old lint and crud from housing. Installed the new bearing and slides. Some of the seals had deteriated, so I used some weather stripping to re-seal the exhaust port and connector. Reinstalled the front panel and hooked up the electrical connections. Tested operation before replacing the top cover. Drum is now very smooth again, and no squeeking. Very simple repair. I might also mention, I priced these parts at a local parts house, and found I would have been better off buying a new machine if I had bought the parts localy. ( I forgot to mention I unpluged the machine before removing any parts.) Hope anyone reading this has as successful a job as I did.
