Where do I find instuctions to replace rear drum bearing and front felt guides? Thanks
Answer Hello Dirtfan. You will need to remove the top panel, by removing the screws on the back of the panel and sliding it off. Then remove the control panel assembly. Next you will need to remove the front panel of the dryer. There you will see the felt seal 134440200. This is a glue down part. To remove the tub, you will need to remove the belt, and lift up on the tub and slide it out the front of the machine. Then you can change out the rear bearing. Hope this helps.

Would a bad drum bearing also cause the back of the dryer to heat up?
Answer Hello Tim. No, that is where the element is located. It is normal for the back wall to heat up. If getting to hot, you will need to check the vent on the unit.
My dater-in law says she is having to run 2 drying cycles to get her clothes dry. This happened before and the vent was plugged, but it's not plugged this time. It seems to be blowing plenty of hot air. I was wandering if it could be the thermostat or the moisture sensor.
Answer Dwayne, If the dryer is running 15 to 20 minutes and shutting off, then it could be a moisture sensor 131845802 or control board 134523200 . if the dryer is running and heating for the full cycle(40-60 minutes) then consider the hi limit thermostat 3204267 it could be "weak" and cycling early, because of the pervious vent issue, causing a lower temperature, and extended drying times.
Hello, When the dryer is loaded with wet clothes and started it is turning slowly, but will speed up as the clothes become dryer and less weight. If empty, the drum turns at the normal speed. There are not sounds of belt slipping, burning belt, motor smell, squealing or squeak and the clothes do come out dry so the fan is turning at the correct speed which I would think means the motor is turning at the correct r.p.m. and working. The unit was built in 2006 and hasn't been a problem at all. Is it possible that the belt is beginning to slip? Please advise.
Thank you, Dan C.
Answer Hello Dan,
This can be drag from a poor rear drum bearing 5303281153, worn front bearing 137513300 (two required), or a weak motor winding131560100.
My dryer is making a loud squealing noise. From everything I've read, it's the bearing. How do I know if I need the whole kit or just the bearing?
Answer Hello Deb. You will need to replace the whole kit 5303281153 and the front seal 5303937182. It is always best to do the whole kit. If one part is worn, all parts pertaining to that part are worn also.
The dryer makes a like a grinding noise when it first starts up and when it is going to stop.
Answer Hello M.F.,
This will be the rear drum bearing assembly 5303281153, the front glide 5303937139, or there is an issue with the blower wheel 131967600.
