Drum Bearing Slide - Green
PartSelect Number PS6447706
Manufacturer Part Number WE1M1067
The drum slides support the front of the dryer drum. As they start to break down it may cause your dryer to make noise or not dry clothes in the usual amount of time. You will need to purchase two for both sides of your dryer. They attach to the outer-most sides of the bearing. The manufacturer recommends replacing both slides at the same time. Take this opportunity to clean out the lint and dust in the dryer, to keep it running smoothly. This is a genuine replacement part that comes directly from the manufacturer. This item is sold individually.

Drum Support Bearing
PartSelect Number PS418807
Manufacturer Part Number 131825900
If your dryer does not tumble, will not start, is noisy, or is leaving marks on your clothing, you may need to replace the drum support bearing. The drum is supported at the rear by a bearing, which attaches onto the inside of the rear panel of the cabinet. You will need to remove the dryer drum before completing this repair. Although replacing the drum support bearing is a fairly easy job, you will need tools to complete it. For this repair, you will need a putty knife, a Phillips screw driver, a 5/16 nut driver and maybe a small flat blade screw driver.

Grounding Ball
PartSelect Number PS459766
Manufacturer Part Number 5303281019
This grounding ball is used in dryers and works to prevent friction in the rear bearing when the drum rotates. If your dryer is making a squealing, loud, banging noise or will not operate, it is best to replace it to solve the problem. To repair, first remove the main top and remove the strap at the back of the dryer to lift the lid. Next, remove the two wire harnesses and Phillip screws on the sides that connect to the front panel. Now that you have access to the inside of the dryer, refer to the manual for further instructions by following the manual provided by the manufacturer.
