I followed all the video on the website with all the parts I had purchased. Very easy. Just make sure you unplug the dryer first. Thank you,
Were these instructions helpful?
Others with the same problem of dark marks on clothing suggested replacing the white and the grey drum slides that slip into the front drum bearing unit. When I open up the dryer, I did find that both the white and grey drum slides on one side of the front drum bearing piece had completely worn away, and some of the drum bearing piece was also worn away. I had decided in advance to order both white slides, both grey slides, a new felt seal, and the front drum bearing piece. Possibly I could have reused the old front drum bearing, but the replacement was cheap enough. Three bits of advice: 1) if you replace the felt seal, make sure you get it tucked behind the clips on the door panel; 2) if you replace the front drum bearing piece, once you have the dryer put back together, reach up and pull the plastic drum bearing toward you to be sure it is fully snapped into place; 3) after you replace the slides or felt, the drum will make mild rubbing noises as it turns, so run the dryer with no heat for about 30 minutes to seat the parts.
I looked at the video on this site for replacing that part. If you watch the video you will have no proplem. It took me 20 mins to do the repair, may have been quicker if my hands would have been smaller to connect the wires back in the front panel.
I watched your video first. Pulled out two screws and removed the top, took one screw out on the left and right side so the front of the dryer could be removed. I then pulled the old Drum bearing out, installed the drum bearing slides in the new drum bearing then put it back together the way I took it apart. No problem!! Saved me a bunch of money and my dryer is repaired. Thanks!!
If someone else replaces these parts be sure to also purchase the 4 nylon bearings! The front drum bearing does not come with them and this site does not mention or recommend buying them. So I had to find another source to purchase them. Also when I placed my order I was told I would receive the parts in 2 days it took 4 days for them to arrive.
Remove the front panel and replaced the front support and slides.
Lifted the top of dryer off, screws were already removed diagnosing the problem. Removed two screws holding front panel on. Snapped the worn front drum bearing out of its place. Transfered the glides, I ordered extra, from the old piece to the new one. Snapped the new drum bearing in place, slightly lifting the dryer drum to rest on the new front drum bearing. Then I attached the front dryer panel with the two screws. Finally put the top of the dryer back in its place with two screws to hold it in place. Finished with a test run of dryer. No squealing, so i put in a load of clothes to be dryed.
Followed the video instructions provided by this site No confusing, hard to decipher diagrams or written instructions. The whole process took 30 minutes half of which was cleaning out 5 years of accumulated lint.
Followed your video. no problem, very easy thanks saved lot of money on repair cost.
I used the videos provided to get an idea of what to expect. By simple inspection, I found the right screws to remove to gain access. There were two screws to remove the top cover, and two screws below the top cover that released the front panel. Removed 4 screws total to gain access, and that was it. It couldn't have been easier, and took less than 20 minutes to remove, and no more than 20 minutes to replace the parts. Very easy. Thanks for providing the videos, and supplying the parts in 3 days.
