Frigidaire Gallery Dryer FDE847GC drum doesn't turn

The dryer has been very loud the last few loads and finally died. It runs, gets hot, but drum doesn't turn. I called around and was told that I probably needed the rear bearing kit. The person that told me had no idea if a 'normal' person would be able to install it or if I would need special equipment or more than 1 person to handle the job. Would appreciate any information if you've dealt with the problem. Thanks!!!

MY FRIGIDAIRE MODEL FAQE770KW0 DRIER IS MAKING A LOUD NOISE AFTER IT GETS HOT


you might need a new roller on the back of the drum, As for being louder when warm it's the part getting hot from Friction that is wearing the roller or roller pin down.

Frigidaire Gallery Series GLEH1642FS loud noise on final spin


It sounds like something has come loose or some item was placed in the unit accidentally and it got lodged in the drum. You will need to start by taking the front cover off and looking around the drum.

Make Frigidaire dryer model Gleq2152es1 is making a loud sqealing noise and the clothes getting hung in top of dryer.


mostly the noise your hearing is the drum running on the side of machine .the baering/bearings have collapsed in your drier . Most driers these days have the bearing encased in the outer drum and i mean molded to the outer drum . You cant replace them and the manufacturer doesn`t really want you to . Sorry about that = looks like a new drier for you .

FWT445GES1 Washer makes loud banging noises like it's going to explode.


Washer- you need a complete tub and bearring kit. this is a common problem for people who have well water. (also just happens) the rear yoke has become corroded and broken. its a costly repair.

dryer - you would need a new front slider seal. very simple to install.

Wire Scraping sound and sparks inside rear dryer drum area.


Probably the rear bearing has failed and caused the drum to rub against the heating element. Hey, is this the guy that said he heard a noise last month? LOL

Frigidaire Gallery Heavy Duty Front Load Dryer problem


it's probably the nylon bushings that the drum rides on. they wear out and the drum rides directly on the pad that the bushings attach to.
