My dryer makes a thumping sound when loaded. Could this be a bearing or upper seal?
Answer Hello Mike,
This is probably a bearing or a glide, or a combination of the two. This also puts wear on the belt 134503600. I always replace all of the parts the unit may need so I don't have to go back in for a while. The glides 137513300 come one in a package so you do have to order two for the complete repair. The bearing 5303937139 comes in a kit with an instruction sheet.
Is this the upper drum seal?
Answer Hello Rhea! Yes, the seal part number 134440200 is the upper felt seal. For the lower felt seal use part number 5303937183. Thanks!
Why is clothes being torn?
Answer Hello Mike. Check and see if the front tub seal 134440200 is bad on the unit. If so, you will need to replace the seal and the rear bearing kit 5303281153. Hope this helps.
