Question about Dryers
The Model is:WDE546RBW1
I tried to replace the worn ball bearing. During the repairing process, by mistake, the wires attached to the heat element was pulled and somewhat damaged: there are 3 wires near the heat element connectors: 1 thick black one; 1 thick yellow one; 1 thinner darker yellow one (maybe it should be called tan or dark yellow?). I know where the thick black one and the thick yellow one connect to the heat element connectors. The problems is: there is one thinner darker yellow wire - I don't know where it was pulled from? It seems it was pulled from the thick yellow one on the heat element connector. I need confirmation. (scary stuff!) I took a photo: you can view it by clicking
Thank you in advance!

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.
