    I solved the metal on metal sound on my GE front load dryer Model DCVH515 EFOWW by replacing the Top Bearing Part #WE14M124 and the Slide Drum pieces that fit inside the Top Bearing (2 white Part # WE1M333 and 2 green Part # WE1M481). I paid $66.00 from a local appliance part store in Cincinnati. My husband and I did it ourselves and it was an easy fix.

Hi and Welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You already have discovered the problem. Lint has built up in the vent / exhaust ducting. Most of the time the through the wall vent flapper gets lint build up on it outside the house and then as that restricts airflow you get condensation in the ducting. The condensation causes the lint to form a cake like paste inside the ducting. THOROUGHLY Clean out your vent ducting from the dryer connection all the way thru the outside wall and your dryer will be fine. If you need to replace the ducting please do so. Ducting is cheaper than the electricity you waste on clogged ducting. You proved your dryer will work correctly when you dried a load of clothes with the ducting removed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa

Taking a ge dryer apart to replace worn belt. the dryer works fine with light load but squeeks with medium to heavy load. drying time is fine.


you will need to replace the drum glides near the front of the drum,just behind the door,which will require you to remove the front panel to access the glide unit,there is a gold and a green glide,you will need to get the right one after disassembly

Dryer is heating, but stops before clothes are dry. could this be a sensor issue?


Timer might not be calibrated correctly. Could be the amount of clothes and how heavy they are (e.g. blue jeans?). Give the clothes more time to dry

Elec. dryer squeeks...squeeks...squeeks...replaced belt, did not improve. Could it be the plastic drum slides, I only say this because they look really worn?


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If the rollers don't have flat spots on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
