My Dryer model #MDE9206AYW is making the loud screeching noise that I see on some of the other post. Can I just replace the roller axle MFG Part Number 6-3129480, or do you think I should replace the support roller MFG Part Number 12001541 as well? The dryer sounds a little rough even when it is not screeching so loud you have to leave the house. Do you suggest replacing the bearing kit MFG Part Number 306508 as well. I would rather not have to buy a rivet tool if the axle and or support roller will stop the loud noise.
ANSWER Ben, either of those parts could be causing your noise. Since you're already going to be there, it makes since to replace the rollers 12001541 and the Tumbler Bearing Kit 306508. It's recommended that you replace both bearing kits and both rollers at the same time. You should be able to find a rivot tool at a reasonable price. Hope this helps!
