Referred to Video and replaced drum support bearing as shown. Did not solve the problem as noise was still present. Called professional repairman, who replaced the belt pulley, along with all the parts I had just installed (came as part of a total kit). I was on the correct path, but just didn't go far enough to check out the belt pulley. If it should happen again, I could complete the whole repair process. Great learning process!!

Shreking noise when turning on, then loud noise from dryer, after a few minutes it would not be so loud but louder than normal.

Replaced everything on the dryer till I got the right problem, seriously, I now have a new dryer in an old body, still came out alot cheaper than buying a new one. I listened to every sound on youtube but none sounded like my dryer.

removed top-removed front-removed belt-removed drum (I didn't know how the drum came out WITH the bearing so I unscrewed the 3 middle screws on the back of the drum which released it from the bearing)- removed the bearing-that was when I knew what to order. installed the bearing on the drum before assembling all in reverse order. I wasn't sure how much grease to use so I used about 1/3 of it.

Had the drum bearing but had never got a round to putting it in we just let it squeek. Then the belt went. Easy enough, whatched the tutorial once and just did it. 35 minutes and back drying.

Dryer did not stay hot through complete cycle

This repair took about fifteen minutes. I popped the top of the dryer using a flat-blade screwdriver, leaned it back against the back wall, unscrewed two screws holding the front panel, removed the five electrical spade contacts after marking which went where, swung out the panel and lifted it off. After that, it was a simple job to unscrew the plate holding the solenoids in, at the bottom left of the unit. I replaced the solenoids, closed everything up and now the dryer is working better than it has in the last three years, or so. If your dryer is heating sporadically, the odds are 85%, or more, that a solenoid swap-out will correct the problem.

Early in the cycle, dryer was making a loud noise

As the clothes began to dry and got lighter the noise stopped. Apparently the noise was the result of the rear lower portion of the drum scraping the heater coil due to a well worn upper front felt seal. To repair; I watched a how-to-repair video that was posted on the internet and after watching it, everything was easy.

The belt broke on a squeaky dryer

I raised the top up by releasing the two clips in the front edge with a small flat head screwdriver. I used a bungie cord to keep the lid from bending to far back. I removed the front of the dryer softly letting the drum rest on the insides. I carefully removed the drum by pulling upward to disengage the rear bearing and not damage the heating element. I then cleaned the entire inside of the dryer with a vacuum, brush, and some compressed air. I then replaced and greased the new plastic bearing cup, installed the drum, slipped the belt on, installed the front cover, and hooked up the belt through the access door on the rear of the dryer. Checked to see if the system looked ok and closed the lid. Worked great. I would order a front seal felt kit also if I was to do it again.
