Screching noise as tumbler rotaded
Removed the two screws found inside top portion of the door frame. This allows you to remove the front of the dryer but remember to disconect the two wires to the stop switch. After this, top will just lift out, set it aside. Proceeded to place front section on mat on the floor. The parts ordered consisted of drum slide bearing (3) these are just friction pads, the molded front plastic drum bearing and the air dust seal. Proceeded to pull the dust seal, and front drum bearing. Just reversed with the new parts and installation was a breeze.

Squealing/rubbing noise clothes getting stuck
Removed the screws (torx head) from the top of the control panel and pulled out of the way.
Then remove the top cover gaining access to the inside. Removed two screws near top inside of front panel, 5/16" nut driver. Then removed front wear the front bearing guide is. The old guide was worn thru badly. Removed the bearing guide, snaps out, but it took a little effort. After cleaning installed parts and make sure you secure the felt at the ends. Reassembled in reverse order. The dryer works great now, no clothes are getting eaten and it is much quieter.

clothing was getting stuck on inside near top of door
I followed instructions provided by other users of this site. Two screws removed allowed the top to be raised. Two more screws allowed the front to be removed and swung to the side. I removed the felt, and replaced it, after looking which way the bevelled edge faced. The teflon drum slide bearings were simple to replace. The front drum bearing was a little difficult to remove, but I just kept prying with a flathead screwdriver and it eventually began to pop off. I vacuumed and removed a ton of lint from everywhere I could get at, and the dryer now runs quieter with no more clothing getting hung up inside.

Noises during cycle
I was actually able to do the repair based on the other repair stories listed on this site. Their instructions were clear and concise which made the job a breeze. The last time I had a repairman come out the bill was $95.00 to disconnect and reconnect a wire. For less than $50.00 I was able to do a much bigger job for a whole lot less. The best part of it all: my wife thinks I'm a genius.

Squealing noise during tumbling (metal wear)
First read very helpful reviews on PartSelect from:
Summit Health and Fitness From Flagstaff AZ
and Michael From Warwick RI

The parts diagram on PartSelect is good as an overview. Having two people makes a big difference detaching and re-attaching the drum.

Knowing how to get the lid and front door off each specific model is important. That's where the stories mentioned above were essential. After that, many generic dryer repair stories will work.

I recommend changing all wearable parts while you are in there. I wish I had ordered some new felt, but I did rear bearing, slides, and belt even though the belt probably was good to go.

PartSelect shipped from Windsor Locks, CT. The parts were nearly exact replacements. Some fasteners were different, so I used the old ones and had the tap the sheet metal on the retainer with the fasteners before installing it.

Really glad to have stumbled on this site via Google.

It was an awful sreeching noise
I removed the two screws from inside the door at the top, which were holding down the top.

Removed top,then two screws at the top of front in the inside of the unit

Tilted out the front so the wires would not come disconnected, slip in new bushings, and put it back together.

Thanks,
Saved me from buying a new dryer

drive belt broke
I unplugged the machine, then unscrewed two screws that hold the top and front together, and lifted off the front door. When I pulled the drum out through the front, the belt came out broken. It was the original, so this is not a surprise. I ALWAYS take this dryer apart once a year to vacuum it out, clean all the ducts and fan, and check everything. This dryer is fifteen years old, and has survived three teenage daughters with their laundry. This time I noticed that the sliders on the front door were worn, blower wheel was loose, and rear bearing was loose,so I ordered everything. The parts came in three days. By then, you could no longer see the basement floor with piles of laundry and Friday night dates looming. I had everything replaced and working in under an hour, after which there was a conflict over who gets to use it first. Hey, I only fixed it, then I walked away. So, for 140 bucks, I have now replaced virtually every critical part, and with no rust, this thing will last as long as these guys have parts. I'm happy, my daughters are happy, and that means the wife is happy. And we all know what that means...
