Squeaky while in use

My Repair & Advice
Ordered the front felt glide assembly after replacing the tensioner and drum bearing after noticing that it was pretty wore down. Replacement was fairly easy...just removed the old glide assembly and cleaned off the old adhesive. Apply the glue provided to the felt piece and the dryer and let it set up for 2 or 3 minutes. Then pressed it firmly in place and held it for a minute to set. I then reassembled the front panel to the dryer as this holds the felt glide assembly in place. I let it cure for an hour and then ran the dryer on air to seat the drum. It will take a few minutes for the drum to break in the new glide assembly (might sound a little different than usual) but once it does it is quiet and best part no more squealing! If you are even partially mechanically inclined you can do this one!
