Question about Dryers
OOPS! I am having the scorching issue but with my other dryer Frigidaire FSG747GES1...no wonder I could not find the correct part.
Could you walk me through that process...replacing the bearing? http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/retrieveSubComponentPartsAction.action?modelNumber=FSG747GES1&productCategoryId=0151200&brandId=1428&modelName=DRYER&diagramPageId=00002&componentDescription=CABINET/DRUM&documentId=Y2704404&backToLink=Return to Sub Components list
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello dneal66 - Generally qualified technicians often perform complicated part replacement such as this due to liability and safety reasons. If I was in your position, I personally recommend contacting a professional to accurately diagnosis the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. You can often locate a certified service provider through the manufacturer website.
