Question about Dryers
8-year old GE DSXH43 heavy duty dryer has drum that used to make squeaking noise and has a gap along part of it that catches clothes.
Does anyone know if this fixable or does it require an entirely new drum?
I've been told that we should just put the money to a new dryer but we have a space problem and many new models are too large so I'm leaning towards fixing it. Any thoughts?
Most driers are now smaller in overall size and have ratings as to their capacity
many are more energy efficient , drying quicker than the older models
check the spares availability at an authorized repair agent spares for a new drum as fixing it would be the last option

If the clothes catch on the drum edge the felt seal is worn out , and the squeak could be the bearing the drum rest on or the belt tentioner , it may need oiled , you can buy the felt seal replacement kits online and they are not hard to install.
Hope this helps.

its just the bearing and it needs replaced. it will take about two hours to do and it will cost you about 30 dollars in parts. you can find many really goods vids on youtube that will show you how to do it and most parts manufactures now have directions on how to do it in the cluded when you buy the parts.

Your dryer uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. Here is a video at this will walk you thru the replacement and inspection of the front bearing and glides. It may be a different model but the process will be the same. The blower wheel is another common place to hear noise and this is easy to check and inexpensive. The idler pulley is another part that frequently fails. Your dryer supports the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn. All of these parts are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video of this also at the same site. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.
