Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer
I have a DPGT750EC2PL that has been making a thumping noise for the past several weeks while drying. It appears as if something is out round.
It is probaly not the front felt seal but the bearing the drum turns on.
It is located in the middle of the drum at the back.
You will need access to the back of the dryer to fix.
It is realy a pretty easy fix and will save you a bunch of money.
The bearing looks like a flat plate with a tiny trailer hitch ball. I kid you not.
Open the top which is hinged in the back, pry the front up ,but be carefull to to chip the finish.
Its tight but no screws usually.
Find the screws to take the front door/panel off. With the front off and the belt pulled loose you can pull the drum out of the socket from the back of the dryer.
Buy the part first and you will see a lot of what you need to do. Use the high temp grease( included in kit) freely in the socket.
Then assemble the reverse way you took it apart.
Put the belt back on the drum and route around motor pulley, before the door assembley.is put on the front.
Then on your knees or belly reach back by the motor and put tension on the idle pulley, ( pulley not on the motor.)
Route the belt around the motor pulley and the idler pulley so when you let go it tightens the belt.

It's not a bearing...
It is the SEAL and BELT in the front of the drum. These are parts that are intended to wear out over time. They hold the drum in place as it turns. Since they are worn -- the drum is no longer balanced and thus thumps as it turns. When the dryer is off... you will notice that you can giggle the drum by hand... this should not occur when you have a good/new SEAL and BELT -- approximately $75 in parts
