    What do you mean take the front off? From the inside of the dryer or from the outside of the dryer?

Open the dryer door. At the top of the door opening, there should be two screws holding the top of the dryer down. Remove those screws and the top will rotate up, giving you access to the drum.

No its not hard, just unplug first and then just take the front off and take note where the wires go to the door switch.,also check your drum to make sure you did not damage.

GE Dryer DBVH512EF0WW vibrates/shudders excessively. Particularly with the top on. I've replaced the front top bearing, drum slides and felt seal. What is my problem?


The only thing I can think of is if you have plastic inserts built into the drum then maybe you installed the wrong kit in the dryer.
Their are basically 2 styles of GE dryers. Those that have a steel drum and a bearing with glides on the front panel and those that have felt on the front panel and the plastic glides mounted in the drum itself.

GE DPSR483EA Electric Dryer was making a scraping sound when operating, now a felt like belt has come out on the inside of the dryer. what do i do? Kris Long


The problem is something got between the drum and the felt seal between the drum and the front of the machine. You will have to pull the front off and find out what caused the felt to come out and then put the felt back in place and put the front back on.

I have a GE profile Dryer DPSE810GOT and the dryer sounds like its running on metal to metal is the felt around the drum one piece or two and counld that cause it


The felt is two pieces. And, no, the problem is the drum support glides have worn through, allowing the drum to continue to wear into the front drum bearing. Replace the front drum bearing (WE3M26) and the drum slides (WE1M481) located at the top front of the drum.

The dryer squeals (metallic sound) while drying clothes.


check wear pads around front of drum or rear depending on brand. Ge's are particularly prone to scraping sounds, but still one of my preferred brands. IF a ge, did it get any dents around the sides or back? The drum is close to the sides and a dent in right place will do it. Also the rear panel can push the drum forward rubbing in front.
Ge - wear strips in front, plastic bearing in rear center, replace both, inexpensive.
Whirlpool- felt pad and wear strip in front, felt seal in rear with roller support. check rear seal lube rollers
Maytag -roller in front and rear with front and rear felt seals. some designs have front drum support posts with wear pads. ck these.
Frigidaire (include some sold under GE name) rear bearing cup (plastic)-lube, front feltpad with wear plates if plates gone get new pad/wearplate asm.
Maytag and ge nomenclature tags are in rear .

Drum seal came out


I assumed there was a gasket on the top but there are 4 drum slides or glides on the top.They have worn out. I have to replace the top drum bearing piece(plastic, so it was wearing down)and install 4 drum slides(they are extra).Drum seal on bottom was ok.Ordered parts from appliance parts pros.com, they were 33% cheaper than manufacturer(GE).

Need to replace the front felt seal - GE gas dryer


since you got the top opened, now look inside the front panel toward top remove screws or hex screws now you can remove the front panel. Undo the door switch wires before removing the front panel. The felt seal should be glued to the front panel aroun the opening to the drum you should be able to tell where it was.
