Question about Frigidaire GLER331A Electric Dryer
We do not see how to get at the drum to look at the bearing. The back does not appear to come off. Any ideas on how to look inside. Elecrolux GLER331A
This is a bit of a job. The dryer needs to be in the open. The top swings up by pushing a flat blade screwdriver in the seam between the top and the front panels about two inches from the sides to release the latches. With the top up and supported, Remove the two screws that hold the front panel to the side panels. These are inside the cabinet and near the top of the front panel. Disconnect the door switch wiring and remove the front panel. This is when you find all that lent that the filter missed. Remove the small louvered panel on the back near the bottom of the left side and reach inside and disengage the belt from the motor and idler pulleys. Remove the three phillips screws arraigned in a trangle on the back of the drum near the hub inside the dryer. Remove the small plastic spacer? located in the center of the cabinet where the top and front panels come together. I never could figure out what that thing was for. Now the drum will come out the front of the dryer. Go slow as to not mash or cut a finger. The rear bearing is now accessible for lubrication or replacement. It's not that hard, it just takes a while. Good luck.
