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!

Sqealing sound during operation

Disassembled and removed drum according to directions on this site. Ordered parts and replaced per instructions - - easy as unscrewing and rescrewing old bearing assembly. Hardest thing was putting the belt on - as I did it fromthe front side and the recommendations are to access from the back kick plate. I did not want to wreck the vent tube so I left the dryer in place and did the entire job from the front.

Dryer squealed as it spun

I removed the 2 screws that held the top on. They are located inside the door on the upper lip. I then removed the 2 screws that held the front of the dryer in place. From there I leaned the front against my leg and the drum bearing just snapped off and the new one snapped into place. I replaced the front drum slides easily. They just slip into place. I put everything back together and it is now quiet. Very easy.

Loud noise when running

I was teaching my associate how to do this repair so I showed him how to take off the top of the dryer. Then I showed him how to replace the drum slides. I had him clean out the dryer since we had it apart, and I also showed him how to remove the drum and then reinstall it. This was a very easy repair, and he learned a lot that he otherwise would not have known. Thanks for getting the parts to me so quickly. Rob from Clarks Summit.

Dryer made loud squeak when turned on

First I removed the front and top panel to the dryer. I then popped of the drum bearing, popped the new one on, added slides and put the top and sides back on. Turned on the dryer and it works just like new. All for less than a repair man would come out on a call for.

The dryer had a lovely squeak

I took out a whooping four (4) screws, two that held down the top to the front panel then two screws that attached the side panels (at the top) to the front panel, raised the drum from the inside, leaned the front panel foreword, popped out the old slide (there was only one left), installed the four new slides & put it back together. That's pretty much all there was to it, vary simple.

Loud scraping noise when dryer is running. Also clothing would get stuck around the drum.

First with a screwdriver,I removed the two screws and lifting the top and the front panel of the dyer off. The worn parts were easily removed and the new parts just snapped into place. I then just put the front and top panels back on and the whole job took less than 20 minutes to complete. The next day I received a letter from GE that the warranty would expire and would I like to buy an extention. Thanks to PartsSelect I saved a lot doing it myself.

Squeeky noise when dryer was running

First I removed the 2 screws that hold the lid down. Then I pulled the lid off. Then I removed the 2 screws that hold the front of the dryer in place. Then I lifted the drum a little and pulled the front cabinet out a little so I could see the drum slides. I removed the bad drum slides and installed the new ones. I then put everything back together and turned on the dryer. The squeeky noise was gone.

Dryer was shaking and vibrating all over the floor

Took top and front panel off. Pulled top bearing shroud off, replaced and installed the slides on new top bearing. Installed felt gasket on the bottom piece of lower shroud. Installed new lamp and put back together to check out. Dryer working great now. Should have changed the belt but it is not squelling so it is fine.

Squeaking and black marks on clothes.

Unplug the dryer. Remove top panel (remove two screws on the upper inside edge of the dryer door). Lift the front panel from front (tabs and slots at the back) and lift off. Remove the front panel (remove a screw from each side - top/front). Front panel sits on two feet at the bottom, tilt it forward from the top and lift it up (careful not to damage the electrical connection at the bottom left side). I found the dryer had another damaged part (plastic guide that the Slide WH and the Drum Slides connected to was badly worn). After ordering the additional part I attached the slides (white and gray) to the guide. Set the front panel back on the two feet and tilt it back into place (you'll need to slightly raise the drum back into position - easy). Replace the two screws that connect the front panel. Replace the top cover. The whole repair took less than 1/2 an hour including the time it took to vacuum out the dust. Total cost, about $35!
