Product Description

This is a replacement O-ring for the drum bearing retainer on your dryer. The drum bearing is found at the back of the dryer drum. The O-ring is designed to create a seal on the drum bearing. The O-ring is made of rubber, and can occasionally wear down and break. If you notice that your dryer drum bearing is worn while you’re replacing the O-ring, you should consider replacing it as well. This product is sold individually, and is an OEM part from the manufacturer.

High Pitch Squeal Coming From Dryer
Disconnected the dryer. Unscrewed front screws inside the door on top. Took off front cover and top cover. 1st removed felt and installed new felt. The old felt came out quickly. I used a flat head screwdriver to push the felt in flat. I did not disconnect anything else. Then, I pushed the drum toward the front of the machine and pushed t he sides out a bit so it could come out of its sleeve. I did not remove the belt. You only need to move it forward enough to reach in and take out the old sleeve. Then, with a flashlight I was able to reach in and take out the old sleeve. I took a towel and wiped it clean and added lubricant and then installed the new sleeve an o-ring. Put everything back. Be careful the edges are sharp and my forearm got cut but no big deal.

A very squeaky rotation when dryer was running. I counted it as no good.
I am a 61 year old woman..... I had some help with aligning the drum, and putting on the new belt..... Oh my goodness. I have a dryer, that works like it did when I got it 12 years ago.......Also, included in this repair was a replacement of the front drum bearing, along with the new slides, and the new o-ring on the rear drum bearing sh aft.... I followed the videos that this site offered...... I can't thank them enough....I have to include the professionalism of the phone order department.... Totally 5 star..... Fast shipping.... Great prices..... Great products....

Horrible squeaking and Lots of metal to metal ginding
Continued from previous submission. 6 tried to reassemble dryer and get belt back on drum. Failed. Went back and watched you tube video on replacing belt. Figured out how to do it. We have a gas dryer. So it was much hrfer than the video suggested cut my hand. Brushed my inner left forearm. 7. When got it all back together, realized I had solved the wrong problem. It was the front bearing. Lesson learned. Properly diagnose the problem before ordering parts. I'm happy I only spent an extra $25 to learn that lesson this time. The front bearing was much much easier to replace. It is so quiet how. Can hardly know its on. Wished I would have replaced it months ago.
