This link goes directly to the exploded view/tear down page for G.E. dryers at Repairclinic.com. From there you can navigate back to the parts breakdown/order page. Just enter your model no. in the search box and click search Most G.E. dryers have 3 or 4 screws holding the top panel to the front panel. Open the door andd they should be accessible at the top of the door opening. After removing those, then should be 2 screws at the bottom to loosen, then the front lifts off the 2 screws. The diagram should help guide you through the rest.

Yuck, nothing like replacing the felt, removers will only give you brain damage.I would find something hard plastic to scrap it off to prevent scraping of the finish. Dont give up a burn it off, I know from experience. Try the red plastic scrapers from Ace Hardware, there cheap by a dozen just in case the person who installed the felt had a seizure with the glue!

I am having this same problem with my GE dryer. I found a post on fixitnow.com from a guy that has repaired these for years. He says it is the rear drum bearing. Looks like a pretty easy fix, I am going to try to do it myself. If you try this, I have also read that you should spend the extra $10 to go ahead and replace the drums front felt glide kit.

Depends on what kind of noise...
-Repetative muffled creaking: Probably the metal drum sliding against the plastic mount that holds the front of the drum. It can be TEMPORARILY eliminated by disassembling the dryer and tampering with the felt strip so that the drum has more play and turns more freely. It does not indicate a major problem.
-Metal against metal scraping: Maybe the metal cabinet got bashed in just enough that the drum rubs against it? This kind of sound should be investigated and fixed.
(For what it's worth, my DPSE810EG4 does has the repetative muffled creaking.)
