dryer drum is sqeeking not sure how disassemble to get to rollers and roller glides if this is the problem thanks for any help
Answer To take the cabinet off. Disconnect the dryer from the electrical outlet. This will prevent shock that could result in death. In the back of the dryer, near the bottom, you will see a lower panel; unscrew and pull the panel away. If the model is older, you will need to remove the drum bearing inspection plate which is located in the center back of your dryer. Remove the plate that is held in place by one single screw. Set the screw to the side. Remove the front panel of the dryer. With older models, there will be two spring clips under the cabinet top, one on each side. Using a putty knife, slip the putty knife into the gap at the spring clip. Push the spring clip back to release the spring clips. Lift up on the cabinet top. In newer models, screws join the cabinet front panel to the cabinet top. Open the door of the dryer to find the screws and remove them. Loosen the two screws found in each side of the bottom panel. At the top of the panel there will be two screws, remove them. Remove the two screws which you loosened in the bottom panel and set them aside. Disconnect the group of wires connecting the door. Lift the front panel off the dryer and set it aside. Hope this help!

Our dryer is squealing very loud and we are pretty sure we need the dryer drum front support bearing. Will this be all we need or is there other parts needed to?
Answer Hello Vanessa,
I would strongly recommend to replace the rear drum bearing WE25M40 since it is responsible for most noise complaints on this design. It is also advisable to replace the front support bearing and slides to prevent the tub from slanting far enough to contact the heating element.
Dryer is making a squeaking sound and some clothes are getting caught in the front drum on top. I can lift the drum and suspect the front drum bearing support and glides are worn? When I run the model number it comes up as cannot find but it gives me a similar number with a different first couple of letters. Can you tell me what I will need or if you think there is something else wrong?
Answer Hello Mptzh,
If your model number is DPSR405EA0WW, to correct the drum catching clothes you will need to replace the drum bearing WE3M26, two white slides WE1M504 which go to the two center positions, and two colored slides WE1M1067 which install to the outside positions. The door seal WE09X20441 should be close in tolerance. All of these parts are available in a kit WE49X20697 cheaper than buying them individually.
The rear bearing WE25M40 should be replaced since it will be responsible for the squeaking. make sure the idler pulley WE12X83 spins freely.
