Question about GE DBL333EBCC 5.7 cu. ft. Electric Dryer
THERE APPEARS TO BE A METAL ZIPPER BROKEN UP IN THE GUIDE AT THE DRUM OF THE DRYER.
I WANT TO REMOVE THE FRONT PANEL TO CLEAN IT OUT.
I found the parts manual on line at GE Appliances.
The replacement parts for the top indicated pictured two clips holding the front of the dryer in place.
I tried a narrow screw driver on the clips and that released the top.
With the top off, removing the front panel required removing two screws, lifting the drum and pulling slightly on the front panel.
After removing the wires from the door switch, I was able to find the broken zipper, clean out the fan, remove excess lint and reassemble.

The motor bearings may be worn. Remove the drum drive belt and then start the dryer. If it squeals with the belt off then the motor bearings are likely worn.
There is a small roller that tightens the drive belt for the drum. They can squeak. Remove the lower front panel and you should see the small roller near the motor and belt.
Another is the two larger rollers that support the drum. You will see this if you remove the front lower panel. Another is where the drum rides on the upper round part of the door/opening and it has a plastic guide that separates the metal drum from the metal door/opening. Over time this wears out and the two metal pieces will squeak.
