Drum Glide

$13.92
Fix Number: FIX11741931
Manufacturer #: WP37001298
Manufactured by: Whirlpool

Product Description

Located in the front bulkhead of your dryer are two drum glides, which help to ensure that the drum rotates smoothly and quietly while the dryer is operating. When the glides wear down, it can cause a metal-on-metal noise while the machine is tumbling. If you notice that your dryer is excessively noisy, is not tumbling, or is leaving marks on your clothes, it may be time to replace the glides. This genuine OEM part is sold individually, however we recommend replacing both glides at the same time to ensure even wear. Please be sure to disconnect the power supply to the dryer before beginning this repair.

      High-Pitched squeak during first 2-3 minutes of drying
      I knew right away that some rollers were bad. So, I decided to do a total "rebuild" while I had the dryer apart. I.e., any part pertaining to movement of the drum. So, I replaced the 2 rear rollers, idler pulley, front glides and drum drive belt. Why not? You're already in there - just do it all, and you're good for maybe another 10 years. One thing they don't tell you in the videos, but you really should do; add some grease to the shafts for the rear rollers and on the shoulder bolt that holds the idler pulley in place. Don't "slather" it in there; I used a wooden toothpick to put a small amount for the roller shafts and shoulder bolt. It's best to use something that can stand high heat. I used STL Pipe Thread grease; but any good, high-heat grease will do. Also, take the time to vacuum out the inside of the dryer, and ALL air paths. Especially the front Lint Duct Assembly. Mine was so full of lint, it was almost blocking the blower wheel. It was so packed, it was mostly blocking the thermal limit switch!!. That could cause the dryer to over heat, and catch all that lint on fire. Clean it good, and it'll take less running time to dry your clothes. I could tell the difference.

      very noisy when turning
      Idler Lever was obviously totally gone and causing most of the noise. Videos are excellent. Just follow them carefully.

      Noisy dryer from an obvious part(s) failure.
      Removed eight ?" screws (8A X 3/8 Hex Washer Head Tapping) starting with two at bottom kick panel, then two at dryer door panel; disconnect electrical connectors to release door panel from dryer body; remove four screws from dryer opening bulkhead to expose drum and blower impeller; remove two screws securing top dryer panel to side panels; reach inside right lower access to release dryer belt from idler wheel; lift top panel a little while pulling out bulky drum. Vacuum the heck out of the inside. Even better, do all this outside and take compressed air to the inside. Because this dryer was 19 years old, all three rollers (drum, idler wheel), guides (2), felts(2), and belt were replaced. The noise was caused by seized rollers but all rubber on rollers and belt was cracking, so best to change such old worn out parts. Don't forget to lube all shafts with oil (plumbers silicone best), then reassemble...js

      Noise
      Best thing was to tape belt in place on the drum prior to putting back in place, after belt pulley was connected tape was removed. Much easier than trying to install the belt after drum installed.

      Noisy dryer and slipping belt
      No problems. Only the idler pulley seemed to be the issue but since I had the dryer disassembled and all of the parts, I replaced them all so I don't have to do it again any time soon. Watched all the installation videos before tearing into it - they were very helpful and I didn't have to deviate at all from their instruction.

      Dryer was squeaking when initially turned on.
      I really think the squeak was coming from the idler pulley, however due to the age of the dryer (10 + years) I decided to change the belt, front drum glides and rear drum rollers as well. The videos were very helpfull. The whole thing took about two hours, but I had to remove a folding door and pull the unit out of the small utility room to work on it. Actual work time on dryer was about 1 hour including vacuuming the lint and dust from inside. In the end the dryer is quiet and works like new. This site made things easy and the parts arrived quickly. Very happy with the whole experience.
