My dryer also squeals and runs roughly; according to your advice above I think that a belt, rollers and possibly a pulley are in order. Is there a repair/dryer kit for my model(GGQ8858KQ0) or do I have to buy these parts individually? Also, do you reccomend replacing anything else while I have the dryer open for repair? Thanks for your help.
ANSWER Hi Ari. Look inside the front of the dryer drum to the top at he front. Put your finger carefully up where the upper drum contacts the inner front & rear panel. If there is a large gap it may be that the drum felt is worn out. It is part # 280114. You will need 2 of them and do not use the unit for 24hrs as the felt glue needs time to dry. A usual noise will come from the roller the closest above the heater can. The roller kit that comes with both rollers and all the clips is part # 349241T. Matching belt 341241 and idler pulley 691366. The shaft is part # W10359271. One is always burnt , but there is one each for each roller. There can be debris in the blower wheel that can cause a noise also. It is part # 697772. Thank You.
