Front Drum Bearing

Part Number 960316

This front drum bearing helps your dryer operate as quietly as possible. It is about 10 inches in height and 22 inches in width. It is made entirely out of plastic and is white in color. If your dryer model has a light in it, remove the light bulb before removing the bearing because it will hit the bulb and potentially shatter it. This is an OEM part and is sold individually. Please note that although the slides are not included in this part, the drum slides should also be replaced when replacing this bearing.

Question:

I’m changing all the bearing slides on my dryer how many do I need and why are they different colors?

Brent
Answer:

Hi Brent, the bearing slides are different colors to tell the difference between them. If you are replacing the front bearing slides in your dryer you will need 2 lower slides WE1M504, which are white. You will also need two upper slides WE1M1067, which are green. Good luck with this repair.

Question:

My dryer is making a terribly loud noise when I first turn it on. Is there a kit or something I should get for it? Ive been looking at your parts list and if I change the top drum bearing I think I will need the drum slide bearings. How many do I need and which ones should I order??? Are there any other parts I should order to stop the noise? Thanks for the help!

Nina
Answer:

Hi Nina, great question. Changing your front bearings would be your first step as worn ones can cause loud noises throughout the drying cycle. To change the upper bearings, you will need 2 of WE1M504 and 2 of WE1M1067. If you decide to also change the rear bearing which would be the second most common cause for the noise, the part would be WE25M40. Let us know if you have any further questions.

Question:

While drying it is making a squeaking noise that is coming and going like it maybe the belt squeaking

Bobby for model number DBXR463GD1WW
Answer:

Hi Bobby, Thank you for your inquiry. Your belt could be the issue. If it has worn down so much that maybe it is slipping against the pulley. However it is more likely that you will have to replace either your bearing slides or your pulley. I would check all of these parts to see which one of them are causing your problem. They are all physical parts, so when you look at them you should be able to determine which one is causing the problem for you. The belt and the slides would be parts that get worn down, the pulley is just something that you turn the wheel on and you will hear if it is making the squeaking noise. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I bought and am currently replacing the rear bearings. Since the dryer is already pulled apart how can I tell if I should replace the front bearings or the support?

Calista
Answer:

Hello Calista, thanks for getting in touch. You will know to replace the front bearings or the support if you see any visible damage. Wear is normal, but if the parts are damaged in any way they should be replaced. I hope this helps!

Dryer made noise upon startup which quieted after a few minuts. Sounded like loose coins in the drum.

Removed two screws inside the door at the top of the frame. This allowed the top to be lifted and slid to the left a bit which allowed the front of the dryer to be removed. The Drum Bearing was held on with plastic tabs and the Bearing slides just fitted over a small tab then into a slot. There is a "knockout" for the light which is removed. The entire process took less than 15 minutes.

None stop screeching sound from the front of dryer

Unplugged power to dryer. Opened door and removed the two screws that hold the top panel on. Removed top panel and set aside. Then removed the two screws that hold the front panel secure and leaned front panel towards me. Replaced parts with absolutely no tools. Reverse steps to assemble dryer. The videos are very informative and give you the confidence you need to do it yourself.

Very annoying squeal as the dryer drum turned

I first watched the video provided on the web site to confirm the steps to repair. Simply remove two screws and lift off the top to gain access to the two screws that hold the front. I didn't need to unplug the wiring harness - just fold the dryer front sideways 90 degrees and have plenty room to work. From there it is just unplug the old parts and plug in the new. Everyone else may know this, but there are TWO green bearing slides and TWO white slides on my model. I only ordered one of each the first time. The second time is much easier!!

Very noisy!

Mine is actually a twofold thing, bc I diagnosed the problem Bfore taking the dryer apart and looking. Highly recommend taking it apart Before ordering the parts. I started out replacing the belt,bc I had read that it makes most of the noise. While replacing the belt, I noticed the bearing, slides, and felt were all messed up. Still, I felt it would work with just the belt.WRONG! It made it through one load before it broke the belt. Fortunately, I had kept the other belt, and ordered the four other parts. I was able to do it without actually unhooking the door from the housing. I just laid it back against it. No tools were needed to replace any of the new parts. I did get a friend to help me put the old belt (which was still in good shape actually) back on. He has a right arm that works! Oh, forgot to mention. This took less than an hour and I only have my non dominant arm that works due to neck surgery a month ago. Repairing a dryer is easy when you watch the videos. Just don't get intimidated! You can do it!????

Noisy like a chain rattling inside

Disconnect Power from the Dryer
Remove 2 screws that held the top on the dryer.
Removed the 2 screw that held the front on the dryer.
Unsnap bearing from front panel. Snap new bearing in place
and reassemble. Turn power back on.

When ordering drum bearing also order 1 set of Front Dryer
Drum Slides and 1 set of Drum Slides. You need both. Also
you should probably check the rear bearing. This would save
you time and shipping. I didn't and it cost me another
shipping charge as well as a couple of extra days downtime.

The front drum glides wore out

I first unplugged the unit, opened the top, disconnected and took off the control panel, took off the front panel to determine the source of the squeaking noise coming from the Dryer. I saw that 3 of the 4 Front Drum Glides were gone and the drum had worn away significant amounts of plastic from the Top Bearing Assembly. I purchased the Top Bearing Assembly and a set of 4 Front Drum Glides. Disassembled the damaged parts and reassembled with the new replacement parts. The reassembly took less than 20 minutes. I plugged in the Dryer and viola! It works as good as new.

Front dryer drum bearing wore out

Our gas GE "Eterna" King Sized capacity dryer started squeaking one day. I was suprised since the dryer was only a few years old, but assumed some grit had invaded and worn a bearing in the belt tensioner. My wife and I have three kids, so we use the dryer daily. The sound got louder quickly and finally it was so loud I had do something. After unplugging the appliance I took the top off the dryer (two screws in the top of the door jam) and the front off (two screws at the top of each corner) and in doing so saw that the drum bearing, which is just a round plastic
"shelf" on which the tumbler drum rides, suspended over the door, was worn through. There were four little "slides" on the bearing surface, and all but one was worn down to dust. I ordered the replacement bearing and slides (two white, I didn't know I also needed two green and have since bought them too) from Part Select and they arrived in about three days. In the meantime I re-assembled the dryer easily and we did use it once or twice, shrieking. When the parts came in I installed them in about 20 minutes, screwing the new bearing onto the rear surface of the front panel, right over the opening for the dryer door. The dryer has worked perfectly since. I used one Phillips head screwdriver for the whole job and paid about $50.00 for the parts. I work in an office and I travel, and when I was a kid I fixed my own cars and stuff, but I'm no appliance repairma! Nevertheless, this was easy! I assume I saved at least $100. The dryer works perfectly and more importantly, it's quiet again!
