I'm getting a loud squeek coming from my dryer. Could this be caused by worn felt seals or is it more likely to be the glides? The noise is not constant. Every 0.5 seconds or so it squeeks. Thanks for any information.
Answer Hello Scott. Most of the time it is the glides 137513300, noting that it takes 2 of these and they are sold and shipped in quantities of one. The other part I would scrutinize is the rear drum bearing kit 5303937139. This supports the rear half of the drum and can cause the rear of the drum to droop low enough to actually contact the heating element. Of course until you disassemble the unit it's hard to say whether the felt seals are worn or not. Sure hope this helps you out!
Im trying to replace the upper felt seal as seen in the picture, I didnt recieve any instructions on how to replace this and the old felt piece is missing. I couldnt find it in the model diagram on your site either!
Answer Hi Rudy. After you have removed the front inner panel, You use a putty knife to scrape the rest of the old felt off. Then us the adhesive and liberally (but carefully) glue the new one onto place. You can reassemble the dryer drum and belt and make sure the belt tension er is on correctly. Reassemble the unit but do not use it for 24 hrs. Shut the power off and keep the door open so the fumes do not get trapped internally. The upper felt is part # 5303937182. Thank You.
Where can I find step by step instructions for replacing the upper felt pad on the Frigidaire GLEH1642FS1? I don't think it should be too hard to replace by looking at the factory parts catalog, but I will be helping someone over the phone. My main concern is telling her how to open up the dryer and putting it back together correctly. Thanks.
Answer Hi Eric. The upper felt seal is part # 5303937182. The rear bearing kit is part # 5303281153. You will simply remove power. Remove the top. UN hook the door switch electrical connector. Then access all inside front panel screws and remove. This will give access to the drum and you remove front panel. Then you will release the belt tension off the belt tension er pulley. Then use the drum belt as a lift to remove the drum and belt out the front. Follow written instructions in the kit. Use a putty knife to remove the upper felt. Allow the felt to dry 24 hrs. before using dryer. Thank you.
My model number ends with a 1 (0ne).
Answer Hello! The front felt glide assembly that has the glides attatched is part number 5303937139. Thanks!
Yes thats my model number.
Answer Thanks! It seems model FEZ831AS1 does not have the upper felt that includes the three glides. Your model seems to have dryer drum glide p/n 137513300. Two are required per dryer. Hope this helps!
Does the upper felt come with the three plastic guides ?
Answer Hello! The upper felt seal 5303937182 does not come with plastic glides. There is a similar Frigidaire dryer model number where the upper felt does come with the three glides you are speaking of. The model researched was FEZ831AS1. Is that your correct model number? How does your glide install, on the drum or the felt? Thanks!
