The door to the clothes dryer would not open without the handle. To be able to use the dryer I secured the handle in place with packaging tape. The Part Select website made it extremely easy to identify the replacement part using just the model number. I placed the order on Thursday afternoon and received the part on Friday morning. I had to twist the broken handle to remove it from the door. Then I was able to snap in the replacement handle back in place with little force. Thanks to Part Select my problem was easily rectified.

Squeaky dryer

First I removed the drum as described in many other comments. Took me about 10 minutes, pretty easy. Replaced the part which was easy and could be figured out just by seeing how you took the original part off. The hard part was aligning the drum, drum washer, and metal plate back into the drum bearing. I tried over 2 hours to do this and because it rotates and it's almost impossible to line up all the holes, I decided to do it another way.

I took apart the drum bearing from the back panel and then outside of the dryer walls I aligned the drum, washer, metal plate and drum bearing. I screwed them all in together and then, went into the frame and reconnected it at the back w/ the horseshoe looking washer. It worked perfectly and I was frustrated that it took me so long to figure out a different way to do it.

I have to say because of the installation it was a little tough than anticipated but was very happy with the end result (no squeaking) and money savings. Definitely worth giving it a try if you're patient.

First I removed the 2 screws that hold the lid down. Then I pulled the lid off. Then I removed the 2 screws that hold the front of the dryer in place. Then I lifted the drum a little and pulled the front cabinet out a little so I could see the drum slides. I removed the bad drum slides and installed the new ones. I then put everything back together and turned on the dryer. The squeeky noise was gone.

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.

I took out a whooping four (4) screws, two that held down the top to the front panel then two screws that attached the side panels (at the top) to the front panel, raised the drum from the inside, leaned the front panel foreword, popped out the old slide (there was only one left), installed the four new slides & put it back together. That's pretty much all there was to it, vary simple.

This one is so easy my grandson could do it. The removal was easy, it broke off. The installation was a "snap in place". Thinking I needed a few days of dryer use without the handle, I made a temporary repair. I fished some heavy packing string thru the slots in the door, made a loop, than a knot. This gave my wife something easy to grab to open. Did not even need to do the temporary repair, the part arrived in one day.

After 12 years the handle on my GE washing machine broke.

Squeaking when using dryer

It was simple to get drum out. I took all screws holding top and door out with out problems, then released the drive belt. It took some wiggling to get the drum out. I then was able to get at the rear elements. Taking the wires off the thermostat came off with a little persuasion. Removing shaft from drum took some stretching as I was doing the work by myself. I would suggest that a helper be used for the removal and replacement of the shaft. Reassembly was easy. Just reverse of the above.
