Question about Dryers
I have read your reply regarding the scorch issue and replacing the front bearing. This morning I went to the partsdirect site to order the part, but I am not sure which part I need. I clicked on the link you gave but it only brought up the first page of the site. And Part #20 on the drum page has nothing to do with the bearing (I think).
Could you please help me identify exactly which part I need.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hello Kathy, sorry it took me a bit to get back with you. Is it correct that you do have a Frigidaire? And the model number is correct? If so, we can get started. There are two types of front bearings that come with these units. They could have the 4 small flat type bearing, or the large felt type with the bearings attached. The diagram that I see looks like it just has the long felt glide (Part # 5303937139) . To access this, remove the two screws at the rear of the top cover. The cover will lift off. Now the fun part (for gawds sake, make sure the unit is unplugged) you will look down inside and see two screws that hold the front to the cabinet. Remove these screws. Now, with a kind, yet tough grip, you want to seperate the front. Tug at the top, you will here something that sounds like it broke, but it hasnt, there are clips that hold the front to the cabinet. There are two swing hinges at the very bottom, you can remove your wires (please remember there locations on the switchs) then lift the cover off. You can now work on your felts. I would recommend replacing the lower felt (Part # 5303283286). Be sure you have on hand some very (VERY) good high grade, heat activated glue for your parts. You should be able to get that stuff at your local appliance parts store. Be sure you get your parts from there too, Sears is way (WAY.....) to expensive on parts and shipping. I should know (wisper...I work for them now). Installation is reverse of break-down, just be sure you get the drum back on the felt glides right, easiest way is to open the door, put your hand inside, and lift the drum while pushing the front back on. Make sure you run the unit on high heat, no clothes inside for a little while to seat the glue. Let me know what else you may need. Thanks and good luck.
