Product Description

Upper Drum Glide Specifications

The upper drum glide is attached to the front panel of your dryer, you can locate it by removing the top portion of your dryer. The drum glide allows the drum to rotate with ease and little sound. The front upper felt glide pad with three nylon glides also includes adhesive, essential for mounting accurately. For this project you will need a putty knife, Phillips screwdriver, and a wire brush. This repair is meant to fix issues such as an abnormal amount of noise or the dryer not tumbling as it should. Consider replacing your belt at the same time if you have a dryer more than 5 years old, as it is likely worn.

my mother dryer was leaving marks on the clothes and squeaking.
1 Unplug the dryer and Raise top up by releasing the clips and fold back to expose the drum. 2. Take Phillips head screw driver and remove two screws inside the front dryer panel and then take flathead screwdriver to pop out both sides and set aside. 3. Lay on your stomach and reach inside to the belt pulley and push right so the belt will release then stand to either side of dryer and grab the belt and lift the drum up out of its bracket. 4. Go to the front and pull the drum out and replace the Rear Drum Bearing Kit . 5. Grab the front panel and remove the Top dryer guide and replace to match evenly with the bottom dryer guide by cutting at least 1/8 -1/4" from felt and use High temp adhesive to glue down. 6. Replace everything in order that was taken apart and reconnect electrical plug and start dryer.

The drum was squeaking and running slow
Removed drum replaced bearing with kit, replaced both front drum seals and drive belt. The only problem was when replacing the rear drum ball the three screw holes were poorly tapped and took several tries to get them in. The manufacturers could easily fix this problem. They could provide self tapping hex head screws instead of the Phillips head screws. Everything else went very smoothly.

Squeeling noise during operation.
Almost exactly as per the videos available on the PartSelect web site. The only additional information that would help is that the vent on the back of the unit can be removed to allow for access to the belt spring pulley. This avoids having to reach around from the front of the unit and feel your way to remove and re-install the belt.

clothes got burn marks
After pulling out and unplugging my machine I followed the procedure already worked out by others. I bought and replaced all the parts that were listed as involved with this problem, since I only wanted to do this once and the parts were pretty cheap. The only slightly hard part was reconnecting the drum to the bearing, this could be easier with a third hand.Everything went well and the dryer works fine.

clothes get stuck and burn in upper drum glide
Found the promblem as described at this site while looking for diagrams for the dyer. Repair went as described. Once I removed the old upper drum glide I used acetone to remove old glue. Cleaned up fast and easy. Once installed I let cure for about an hour and then reassembled. Let it cure for about an hour more and then I used the dyer. I could feel that the gap around the front of the drum was again narrow so that my finger tip would not slide into a grove. So far so good.

My dryer has the original five piece front upper drum glide still installed. Is this one piece upper drum glide the correct replacement part? The original glide has a coating of lubriplate grease applied which was not the case when the one piece glide was installed on the video. Is this grease actually needed?
For model number White-Wstinghouse DE500PDG3

I replaced the upper drum glide on my dryer as one of the plastic tabs had come off the old glide (i.E., this was the third glide i've done in 15 years so not new to the process). Now however, the drum has a random shudder noise like the drum is dragging or not moving smoothly over the new drum glide plastic tabs. I thought the lower felt was only for heat retention, but is this noise a symptom of the lower felt needing replacement also or is the beginning of the rear bearing support going bad?
For model number 417.91142000

Hi Frank, from your symptoms it seems the support is going bad, however there is no way I can tell fro sure. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!

Can this part be seen from inside the dryer drum? I am trying to make sure I order the correct part but it seems like all of the felt glides I have found go on the back of the drum. My felt glide is coming out inside my dryer.
For model number 11069822801
PartSelect logo
Hi Della, thank you for reaching out. The dryer drum felt seal with adhesive, part number PS970088, is located at the front and rear sides of the drum. You need to remove the top panel and front panel to locate it. We hope this helps, good luck with this repair!
