Dryer vibrating, shuddering violently, rear bearing squealing
Replaced front plastic bearing and bearing slides for less than $90.00. The repairman from Sears said it would cost at least $300.00 in parts plus labor to repair it, he suggested buying a new dryer (what an idiot). This was a very easy repair, I found instructions on YouTube. 15 minutes and a Phillips’s screwdriver is all that it took. The dryer runs perfectly with no shudder or squeal.

Loud squeaking and grinding noises. Clothes were getting caught in the gap between the top bearing and the drum.
My washer and dryer set are stackable. First I had to take the dryer down from atop the washer. I thought the problem was the rear bearing.
When I received the new rear bearing I watched the video and proceeded to take the unit apart and then I realized the top bearing, slides and the felt seal were completely destroyed so I ordered the rest of the parts I needed It took about 5 days to get the parts and less than 30 min to install. The videos were a big help. I had no Idea what I was doing and was surprised how easy it was. It was a Big savings over buying a new dryer.

Dryer was making very loud squeak/Squealing sounds on a consistent basis.
Fortunately I was able to watch the diy videos posted by your company which were very easy to understand. I took the dryer apart as instructed on the video and identified which parts required replacement. I ordered all the parts from you and as soon as I received everything I installed the parts and had the dryer back together in just about an hour. Great experience with your company!

Washer was squealing and thumping.
I used the PartSelect website to diagnose the problem (three of the four drum bearing slides were completely gone, and the top bearing was very worn), and then used the video instructions on the site to discover that I could most likely do these repairs myself, though I’m not especially handy. The repairs were actually quite easy — I removed the top cover, disconnected the control panel, and removed the front door assembly, then replaced the top bearing and the duct felt seal. I then inserted the new bearing slides into the top bearing, re-attached the front door assembly, re-attached the control panel and top cover, and was done! It works like new! It took me 2 days to receive the parts with normal shipping (ordered Wednesday, received Friday), and it took less than an hour to complete all the repairs, including cleaning the door assembly, vents, etc. Based on estimates I received from local repair services, I saved at least $300.00. Well worth an hour of my time! Great site, service, and instructions!

Dryer was squeeling and clothes were being caught around the plasitc bearing.
One thing to note that I didn't immediately notice. Upon removing the front panel, there is a chance the drum will stick and when you separate the front panel from the drum, this will pull it from the rear bearing. We did not initially realize this was the case until the dryer was back together and would not run. If there is any resistance, we found the easiest way to solve the issue is to lay the dryer supported on its back, then everything slides in and out. the second time through from start to finish took less than 10 minutes. I loved the videos and the parts. I tried cheating and getting the parts on amazon, and wound up buying from this site anyway and paying even more to have it rush shipped.. All in all super glad I did it and didn't buy a new dryer, I think we can tackle replacing anything on it at this point.

My dryer develops a loud thumping noise as it heats up. After 10 minutes it is thumping at its loudest im sure this is a heat related problem because it doesn't thump if i run it on fluff which uses no heat this problem started after i replaced the top front bearing because the slides were worn off and the drum had started wearing into the bearing itself. I even put a new motor in it. The original problem was the dryer stop tumbling during heat cycles after about ten minutes(about the same time the thumping is at its worst) but it wasnt thumping originally i created that problem somehow after i replaced the bearing. It will automatically start tumbling and drying again after it cools down after about 5 minutes. This process goes on and on until it finally has the clothes dry after about a hour or so. My question is. What could i have done replacing the bearing that would make it thump during heatup(by the way i replaced the long felt peice too that goes around the bottom piece of the bearing. And 2nd im guessing that one of the 3 thermostats is faulty and thats why its kicking off when hot(never kicks off during non-heat fluff cycles) my understanding is that the thermisters only control turning the heat elements on and off.(is that correct?) so thermisters wont turn dryer off they will just cause heating problems when failing. I need advice on what parts i need advice on what i did to create this thumping noise. Thank you very much.

Hello Garry, thank you for your question. In regards to the bearing; It sounds like the thumping might be a result of the bearing at the back of the drum. I would check the rear bearing part number WE25M40 to see if the part is bad. In regards to the temperature problem; I would check the safety thermostat part number WE4M160 which is located on the heating element. This thermostat acts as a safety mechanism that keeps the dryer from overheating. Once the dryer temperature reaches a certain point, this piece will shut down power to the heating element. If the unit isn't cycling properly this might be the cause. While you in there testing that thermostat you might want to test the other ones that are located on the heating element as well. I hope this helps!

I have changed the back bearing and the slides but dryer still can handle a very light load or it shuts down. It is very noisy. How can i be sure that changing the front bearing will fix it?
