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!

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.
