Question about GE Dryers
Its probably 'fluff from the clothes' which has built up around the 'heat element'. Have a look & remove the fluff. Keith

SOURCE: dryer drum causing squeak
Most likely the front support bearing. If this is the problem you will likely have to replace the slides too. The wizards have a ten year warranty. The bearing is part number WE3M26 and the slides probably need 3 or 4 of them are we1m333. Hope this helps.

Yes, but you will have to swing the top open, remove the dryer front, and pull the drum forward about 4 inches (leaving belt on drum) to gain access to the bushing. Normally that is all you have to replace, but also check for wear on the front drum slides at the same time.

The problem is either a faulty start winding in the motor, or the circuit which energizes the start winding is failing.
A dryer motor has two windings: start & run. The start winding gets it going and a centrifugal switch disconnects the start winding when the motor gets up to speed.
Check the dryer start switch -- then the motor connections and the centrifugal switch inside the motor.

Turn off power by unplugging the dryer. Top of the dryer is held in place by locking pins. With a flat blade screw driver, pry up the corner between the frame and the top. The top will snap up. Then do the other side. Once both sides snap up the top of the dryer will fold up as it is hinged to the dryer housing. If this dryer has a dryer filter cover on top of the dryer, you may find two screws that are attached to the top. If so, remove these two screws before attempting to detach the top and lift it back. Once that is done, detach the cannon plug going from the unit to the door interlock. Two screws on the inside of the cabinet hold the top and two more hold the cabinet on the outside base. Removing these will allow the front to be removed and in doing so the drum will drop as the front of the drum is supported by the front panel. Now, that you here, this better not be your first dryer repair as the drum belt my come detached as may the door springs and the tension spring for the belt, etc. But, if you are really handy, go to it. Not all that difficult.
