I just replace the rear bearing kit after it was squealing very bad. This has fix that issue. Now after I put everything back(no extra parts) I turned the dryer on, and all seemed fine, then after 2 min it started to make a "crunching/rubbing" sound at the same place/time every rotation. I am at a loss of what this one may be, are there guides for the front of the drum and maybe I did not get this on correctly? The crunching/rubbing sound happens after about 15 seconds of turning the dryer on now.
ANSWER Hello Frank. Yes, you need to remove the front panel and see if the glides are bad or came of when installing the front panel. If they are bad, you will need to replace the front bearing and the glides in the unit.
