From the diagram at:

It appears that you get access to the drum by removing the front panel.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

Constant squeaking when running model # DNSR473EWOWW


You will need to replace the rear drum bearing,a fairly common concern on these models. you should also inspect the front bearing surface the drum rides on for wear since replacement of the rear bearing requires removal of the drum anyway, when ordering the rear bearing kit make sure it comes with the special high temp grease that is used on the rear bearing. Good Luck

My electric clothes dryer has started to occasionally make noise. could it be a bearing or a belt this is slipping. It's a GE machine about 12 years old.


could be the belt,drum glides,rear drum bearing or the idler pulley is weakening and letting the glazed belt slip on the drum

My dryer squeaks when it's on? It's a G E. How do I get inside to look around?


Check Idler pulley and rear drum bearing first. One of those is likely to cause squeaking when it fails. Idler pulley can be checked by removing lower rear panel. It's located right next to Motor.

Rear drum bearing is replaced by raising top and removing front and drum. Often just the bearing sleeve needs replacing unless the support shaft or housing is deformed.

DCXR463GA2WW Squeak


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.
