When running the dryer squeaks real loud?
Answer Hello Ken. You need to check the rear bearing and the front glides in the unit. If bad, it is best to replace them both and not just the front or the rear.
My dryer make a "thump" each rev of the drum. I suspect a cracked or broken roller, idler pulley or rear bearing . What do you think?
You will want to check the bearing slides at the front of the drum as this would most likely be the issue. Also the rear bearing may be causing the issue.
Do you have a video on how to replace the rear bearing kit?
Answer Hello Squeaky. Sorry, we do not have one right now. We are working daily at adding new videos.
Why is my GE DBXR463EB0WW dryer squeaking and have a burning smell.
You will want to check the rear drum bearing for wear which would cause the noise issue as well as checking the idler pulley to make sure that it is turning properly. These would be the most likely causes for the unit making the noise and having the burning smell.
The front slide bearing on this unit has no slides (4). It is one complete piece of circular felt attached to a plastic ring. No area for slides. Is there a like replacement for this part? Thanks.
Answer Ben, You are probably discussing the seal ring WE9X30. It mounts to the front opening of the tumbler and seals against the front panel interior. The part is no longer available from the manufacturer, and we are not aware of an authorized repair or replacement part.
Hello is there anyway of telling wether my squeeky dryer needs a new rear drum bearing or just the slides to quiet it down? thanks
It is recommended to replace the glides at the same time that you replace the rear drum bearing. You could pull the front panel off the dryer to inspect the glides to make sure that they are not damaged but most likely the squeaking would be due to the rear bearings.
