Product Description

Grounding Ball Specifications

This grounding ball is used in dryers and works to prevent friction in the rear bearing when the drum rotates. If your dryer is making a squealing, loud, banging noise or will not operate, it is best to replace it to solve the problem. To repair, first remove the main top and remove the strap at the back of the dryer to lift the lid. Next, remove the two wire harnesses and Phillip screws on the sides that connect to the front panel. Now that you have access to the inside of the dryer, refer to the manual for further instructions by following the manual provided by the manufacturer.

    Can I use a ball bearing of the same size instead of a grounding ball
    Hi Joshua, Thank you for the question. They will have to be the same size and weight in order to substitute the grounding ball weigh a ball bearing. Hope this helps!

    My dryer is squeaking with every rotation. What part or parts will be required to repair this issue.
    For model number 41794712400
    Hi James, Thank you for your question. If your dryer is squeaking when it is tumbling, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the belt, the idler arm assembly, the blower wheel, the blower wheel housing, the drum glide, the drum baffles and the motor. We hope this helps! Good luck with the repair!

      squeeking like crazy
      well, i started at the top and worked my way down. by taking the top off, it gave me more room to get the dryer tub out. took the two screw`s out of the vented plate on the back of the machine to undo the belt. this is a stackable washer-dryer combo, so next i took off the white plate on front between washer & dryer. took off the control panel, unpluged it, then took dryer door front off. then removed the two screw`s that hold that bracket on ,in the back of dryer, pulled the drum out & replaced the belt, but before replacing anything i took the shopvac to it , there was alot of lint in there.when replacing the Grounding Ball Clip & Grounding Ball, i took a one inch by two inch magnet and used it to hold the Grounding Ball & Clip in place so i could get the two screws started in the Drum Support Bearing & Bearing Bracket. after installing that i put the shaft in place & lined the dryer tub up with the 3 screw hole`s ,and boom, bang, pow...nothing to it. it`s easy...parts came very fast....Thx PartsSelect.com...i`ve told all my friend`s about PartsSelect

      Dryer making squeeking sounds and clothes getting caught in drum causing brown spots
      I followed others suggestions with numbered steps and listened to others suggestions about replacing other parts while in the dryer. I took the dryer apart and cleaned it out well. I used acetone to remove the glue from the felt and Drum Glide at the top of the Drum. It worked much better than Goo Gone. By doing the clean up and evaluation one day, I ordered all the parts that I saw were worn or difficult to get to. I replaced the Heating Element only because the old one was very brittle and to get to it again would be difficult. Also, I followed other's advice to photograph the parts before removing. It was easy to remember how things went if I had a photo to refer to.

      When the parts arrived it only took about 30 minutes to install them all because the glue removal, lint removal, and parts removal had been done another day. I should add that I am a 66 year old woman and found the job quite simple. Excellent web site. Thanks to others for the step-by-step instructions. Oh, to hold the Drum Glide and felt in place while the glue cured, clothes pins work great. I let the glue cure overnight to make sure that it was really secure.

      Dryer squealed loudly
      First, I removed the top panel which is held on at the front by pressure clips. Second, I removed the entire front panel which entailed removing 2 screws and 2 wire couplings. Third, I removed the 3 screws on the inside center of the drum which turned out to be unnecessary. Fourth, I slid the drum forward in order to access the rear bearing. Lastly, I replaced the entire bearing assembly including the shaft, bracket, bearing, grounding ball and clip. Again, probably not needed but I had ordered the parts in advance in preparation for the worst.

      Dryer was missing the grounding ball and making a loud squeal
      First I located the two clips holding the top of the machine on and opened the top of the dryer. I then disconnected the two wires on the door switch and removed the two screws holding the front panel on. After removing the front panel, I vacuumed all the loose lint and as far into the lint trap as possible. I then removed the back vent panel and released the drum belt from the pulley. I pulled the drum out of the support bearing. Then I removed two screws holding the drum support bearing, bracket, and grounding ball clip. I replaced the grounding ball and drum support bearing with new parts, (as the drum support bearing was damaged without the grounding ball). Then I reversed the order and put the dryer back together. Overall I felt the job was easy and I'm happy to be able to use a quiet machine again!!!

      Bearing Bracket Worn Out
      Took off front panel, removed drum and replaced parts listed. A bit tricky to keep small parts in place. However, masking tape helped. Best of all was the online diagram of how the parts were assembled. In addition, taking step by step phone pixs aided in replacing parts since there was some down time between diagnosis and installation.

      Dryer bearing failure
      From previous responses on this site. I just followed their lead. If I had not found these folks, and the responses, it would have been a nightmare. It looked like and I thought the dryer came apart from the back! But in reality it comes apart from the front!! Absolutely fantastic site and help. Fast shipping, I ordered on Wednesday before Labor Day, didn't expect the parts until the following Wednesday, but received the parts on Saturday morning, and had the dryer back running by Sunday AM. Never even ran out of clean clothes!!!!!

      Screeching noise when drying
      Rear plastic drum support bearing got worn making the shaft come in contact with the metal bearing bracket. That contact created a groove overtime and eventually snapped the shaft tip off.

      Cut power off. Remove all the screws from the front panel. (where the controls are) working from the bottom to the top. Insert putty knife between the dryer and the control panel and push down to release. Carefully disconnect the wire harness.
      You will find 2 screws at the bottom and 4 on top holding the dryer door. Remove and expose the drum.
      Remove the drive belt
      Remove the drum.
      You need a 5/16 nut drive to remove the bearing bracket and an extra set of hands to hold the support from the back.
      Re-install the parts. I used bearing grease to make it run smoother
      Attach the new shaft to the drum and reinstall the drum (its best done with help)

      Re install everything back again. And you are done
