Dryer squeaking, took apart. Think it is idler pulley. Should I replace all 4 drum rollers as well since it is disassembled now? Is there a kit, or do I need to purchase all individually? Thanks
Answer Steve, Remove the rollers W10314173 and check the roller shafts W10359272 for "bluing" and "heavy" scratches in the metal. If all appears OK, clean up the shafts and the roller bearing with some emory cloth and penetrating oil. use a couple of drops of turbine oil TJ93240 on each shaft and roller, install the new idler bracket assembly W10547290 and belt 661570 and you'll be fine for a few more years.
My machine is squeaking loudly. I suspect the roller(s) are the cause. Do I need to replace all of them? Is there a kit?
Answer KK, you would probably want to use 4392067 dryer repir kit, It'll have everything you'll need, except some high speed turbine oil TJ93240 to lubricate the shafts and rollers. Thanks
Is the Rear Drum roller kit AP3098345 the correct kit for my machine? OR for my machine do I need to purchase all the parts seperately?
Answer Rob, the drum roller kit 349241T is not listed for your model. The manufacturer however, does offer a dryer repair kit that has the rollers, tri rings, belt, and idler pulley available as part number 4392067. Thanks!
My dryer also squeals and runs roughly; according to your advice above I think that a belt, rollers and possibly a pulley are in order. Is there a repair/dryer kit for my model(GGQ8858KQ0) or do I have to buy these parts individually? Also, do you reccomend replacing anything else while I have the dryer open for repair? Thanks for your help.
Answer Hi Ari. Look inside the front of the dryer drum to the top at he front. Put your finger carefully up where the upper drum contacts the inner front & rear panel. If there is a large gap it may be that the drum felt is worn out. It is part # 280114. You will need 2 of them and do not use the unit for 24hrs as the felt glue needs time to dry. A usual noise will come from the roller the closest above the heater can. The roller kit that comes with both rollers and all the clips is part # 349241T. Matching belt 341241 and idler pulley 691366. The shaft is part # W10359271. One is always burnt , but there is one each for each roller. There can be debris in the blower wheel that can cause a noise also. It is part # 697772. Thank You.
