Product Description

This rear drum bearing kit is a genuine OEM replacement for your dryer. The kit includes a shaft, ground strap, bracket, bearing and seven screws for installation. The bearing supports that back of the dryer drum and helps to reduce friction so that the drum can rotate smoothly and quietly. If the bearing has worn out, it can result in your dryer not tumbling, or making excessive noise when it is running.

dryer was squeaking
I followed the you-tube directions. The only problem I encountered was reinstalling the drive belt on the motor and pulley. Directions recommended that you seat the drum in place and reach back to the pulley and seat the belt by feel. I had no luck so I pulled the drum forward where I could see the motor and pulley then I seated the belt and carefully pushed the drum back pulling the drive belt forward as I went until the drum was all the way back and seated.

Cheap screws supplied with Drum Bearing kit
Kit labeled Genuine GE and the brackets and bearing were fine - better bearing material than original. Problem was the bracket mounting holes were punched and designed for "self-tapping" screws. Not what was supplied. Supplied screws had no tapered thread at tip and no chip-cutting relief to do the cutting. Impossible to properly start the screws in the punched holes. Luckily, I saved the 19 yr old screws which were proper "self-tapping" design. Chucked bracket in vise - precut threads and then installed in drum. Otherwise easy repair and wife's happy with her dryer again.

Rear drum bearing was going bad, dryer drum making noise and banging around while drying clothes.
I just watched the video on how to repair, and went step by step. The only problem was putting the belt back on after re-installing the drum. I made a hook out of a hummingbird feeder wire and reached in to hook the idler wheel arm, using my right hand, then using left hand set the belt back on motor pulley and on the idler wheel. This site has very good service parts were shipped on time, and all fit perfect.
