This dryer drum glide pad is an inch long. It is made of a felt material and is used for gas and electric clothes dryers. The dryer drum glide provides a soft surface for the front of the drum glide and allows the drum to move effortlessly. If you notice that your dryer is making loud squeaking noises, it might be due to the drum glide pad being worn down or torn apart. Make sure to unplug your dryer before performing this repair. To access this part, you will need to open up the top of the dryer. The front panel and the bulk head will also need to come off.

If the felt pads are missing from the drum glides, will this cause the drum to rub and scrape?

Dryer banging and clothes getting stuck between tub and felt pad while tumbling.

Very easy repair. I took off the bottom fromt panel with a nut driver. Then I took off the face/door panel. Take note of the wires that need to come off by marking them with a sharpie or tape. The top of the dryer can be stood up to allow access to the ductwork that has the felt pad on it. The felt pad was worn through in spots, the drum glide was completely gone and both cylinder glide brackets were almost completely worn through. I just replaced the brackets and the pads. The old felt came off fairly easily. I scraped the old glue for the felt off with a knife and cleaned and dried the surface before applying the hi temp adhesive. I waited 1 minute while the glue became tacky (be careful, the glue starts out thin and tends to run) and the felt pad was easily put back in place with my wife's help. Everything was very simple and it cost $87.00 for parts and shipping. I felt that this should be a good investment since I have had no other problems with this dryer and this is normal wear and tear. Better than paying $600+ for a new dryer. The video for changing the felt pad was very detailed and easy to follow as well.
