My ge clothes dryer started making a loud skreaching noise im positive its the drum rubbing on metal in the front of the dryer how do i replace what ever is in between that seperates the 2


You need to replace either the front bearing (plastic that drum rolls over) or the glides that go on the front bearing ( glides that insert into the plastic bearing piece that the drum glides on.I would change both, simply remove the top of the dryer then you will see two 5/16' bolts that hold the front to the sides just inside on the top, remove the two bolts and remove the front of the dryer and you will see the bearing and glides that I have described. Replace,reassemble and begin quiet drying again. Good luck!

Help my dryer is eating my clothes


This is a common occurance in Frigidaire dryers and GE dryers. The glides wear out and the drum usually scrubs to begin with. On GE dryers the glides are mounted on plastic bearing. So the noise is not so much but it will still begin to bind up and to pinch. To replace the glides is very easy. Open the door to remove screws holding down the top. Or use a putty knife to pop the top on some models. Then remove the front panel. The bearing pops off and the glades are fairly easy to replace. I have a repair page on GE dryer HERE

My ge dvl223ebww electric dryer won't start,but does hum when the start switch is turned.what are the causes?


Do an inspect. themobilian_2149.jpg
The top will come on off. Check the drum glides for wear
themobilian_2150.jpg
Once them glides wear out yall will be pinching the drum and causing motor stall.
With the top off you can sometimes push start and give it a little help to get it going and then listen out for signs of wear to the glides and bearing in the rear.

Hi i have a GE DRYER and it is making a horrible grinding sound,i took out all the cloth's and tried it again,it is still making the grinding sound,what could be the problem. Thank you


The drum rides on glides in the front and a center bearing in the rear. Those glides are probably gone.

Unplug the dryer and remove these screws then raise the top.
themobilian_576.jpg
Remove these screws and lift off the front to check those glides
themobilian_577.jpg
If it is scrubbing you probably need to not only replace the glides
but the glides mount also (called a bearing oddly enough).

Remove the drum and inspect the rear bearing for wear

How to repair squeeky dryer? My dryer squeeks a lot, it is an older GE with a porcelian drum. Is it work repairing?


It may be worth repairing. GE dryers generally have drum glides that keep the drum quiet while it is spinning. More than likely the glides have worn out and now you have metal on metal scraping. If you post back with your complete model number, I can see if I can locate a part number and a price to give you an idea of what it might take to repair the dryer.

Ge dryer squeeking


HI,

For a pictorial troubleshooting please open the link:

http://www.applianceaid.com/my_own_dryer.html

You will be looking at the front glides that the drum rides on, the glides are probably gone and the drum is rubbing on the plastic glide holder....if it is damaged will need to replace the front drum bearing/glide holder and all of the glides, usually about 4 of them.

If it is the drum front glides the noise will be from the front area, right behind the front panel at the top. If the noise is from the center rear of the dryer your drum bearing is gone, need to replace this also if you have to take this dryer apart..

Thanks

YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A REAR DRUM BEARING FAILING. IT IS A SMALL TEFLON BEARING THAT SLIPS ON OVER THE REAR SHAFT OF THE DRUM AND INTO THE HOLE IN THE REAR OF THE DRYER. THERE ARE ALSO FRONT GLIDES THAT SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE DRYER. OLDER DRYERS HAVE THE FRONT SUPPORTS UNDER THE DRUM SO THE DRUM RESTS ON THEM. NEWER G.E. DRYERS HAVE A PLASTIC RING WITH THREE TEFLON GLIDES ON TOP OF THEM AND THE DRUM HANGS FROM THESE GLIDES. REPLACE ALL OR SOME OF THE ABOVE PARTS TO ELIMINATE YOUR SQUEAK.
ON OTHER POSSIBILITY, THE IDLER PULLEY THAT KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT CAN BECOME A SQUEAK MAKER.
