Dryer squeaks loudly, when drying especially on a heavier load. I noticed the noise loudest near the top of the door. I also noted a lot of play front to back on the front drum support. I placed a small amount of vegetable oil into the front drum support, the squeak stopped, however I realized this is only short term. I need to replace the slides and the front drum support, can you tell me the exact part numbers for this electric dryer. DBXR463EDC1CC
Answer Hello Lori,
The rear drum bearing kit part number is WE25M40. The inner white slides, (two of these), are WE1M504. The two outer slides, green, (two of these), are WE1M1067. If the front drum bearing WE3M26, (the part the slides fit into), has been worn down, it will require replacement also to prevent premature failure of the other parts you are now replacing. While inside the unit, remove the idler pulley and clean the pulley arm where the pulley rides with a dry paper towel and if sticky, use a dab of rubbing alcohol to cut the residue from the softener sheets.
I replaced the drum front support bearing. Now the drum is not turning when I turn it on.
Answer Hello Judy,
Does the dryer motor come on or is the machine silent? You may have inadvertantly unplugged one of the wires to the door switch when you removed the front panel.
What is the difference between the green and white drum slides? Can I use 4 white drum slides instead of 2 green and 2 white?
Answer Sparkee, the difference in the white and green slides is the make/material. You'll need to order both the white and the green slides if your unit calls for both. Thanks.
