Dryer drum seems to be rubbing so hard on dryer glides that it is hindering drum from spinning, not sure if new glides will fix this or is there some adjustment on drum. Can you help?
Answer Hello Steve. You need to check and see if the rollers 31001096 are causing the unit to bind up or if the felt seals are bad on the unit. Also, make sure the braces 12002126 are not bad on the unit as well and the glides 31001470 are good on the unit.
How do I replace the dryer drum front glides (left & right sides)?
Dryer model #YE2OEA4 (Magic Chef).
Answer Richard, You should probably order this "kit" 12002126 since you're replacing both slides. First, you need to unplug the power cord or remove power to the dryer, and slide it out 4 to 6 inches. Use a putty knife or similar tool and insert it into the seam between the front panel and top and press in on the spring tabs and lift up on the top corner to release the top from the cabinet. with the top up and against the wall, look in the cabinet interior and remove the two(2) screws(one on each side) that attach the front panel to the cabinet side flange, lean the front panel out enough the disconnect the wires from the door switch, then lean it out enough the dislodge the drum from the front panel and set the front panel aside. Make a note of the belt routing and reach around the motor and release the belt from the idler pulley Pull out on the drum and turn it in a clockwise direction at the samee time, to release the drum from the rear roller assemblies, then slide the drum and belt out of the cabinet. You now have access to the drum glides. One is mounted on the top of the blower housing and the other is on the top of the drum support stantion. They are both slot and twist fittings and will not need any adhesive or rivets. Once the glides are installed you may want to apply a small "dab" of silicone lubricant to the new pads, then reverse the procedures, and test the dryer.

Answer Hello Donald! You will need to remove the front panel and the front bulk head from the dryer cabinet. Once removed, you will slide the new glides 31001470 into the slots in the bulk head. Thanks.
