I have the same unit and there is no bearing on this unit, it sits on a support (center) and due to the weight of the tumbler it gives on the back support and moves the tumbler forward and leaves a gap in the front giving clearance to catch clothing, the only possible repair is to replace the whole back panel (metal) and this shall take care of the alignment of the tumbler; this is a manufacturing problem the metal is not strong enough to support the strain of the tumbler, if replaced this shall occurred again.

Your dryer was made by Frigidaire and needs what is called a rear bearing kit (#5303281153 costs about $30) from frigidaire.
there is also a good chance that your bearing failed because the dryer overheated (overheating is mostly caused by the venting being restricted)

Hi there! I have a Frigidaire Gallery GLGH1642FS1 stacked washer/dryer. Its making an awful grinding noise while trying to pump water out...the drum still seems to be turning though...any suggestions? Do I...

The washer is separate from the dryer as far as the systems go. It may be possible that you accidentally unplugged the connectors to the water hot valve when doing your repair.
The pump is probably the problem with the noise you describe. if the washer has a belt under the washer it is common for these pump bushings to go bad and make a grinding sound. There could be something stuck in the pump also.

Washer makes awful screaming sound in spin cycle. Is this transmission issue? Repairman seems to think so and fix is so expensive it's almost not worth it, which means buying a new machine.

if its a front load then its the drum bearings that are out of it and you need a new lip seal and bearings,the parts are not expensive but it takes time to dismantle the machine to install these parts

Stackable washer/dryer

When your dryer drum isn’t turning anymore, it’s usually a broken belt. Tearing the dryer apart is usually straight-forward enough but stringing the new belt on the motor and idler pulley can be tricky. The Complete Encyclopedia of Dryer Belt Configurations shows the belt configurations for almost every dryer brand you can think of.

this will fix ur problem..

Loud noise in slow down spin mode.

when it is in high spin then you stop the washer it makes a thumping noise until the basket stops sort of like a flat tire sounds to me like you need a drive block

Dryer problem

check input voltage make sure you have 240 volts red to black and 120 red or black to white. then check heating element. and hi temp cutoff. On Frigidaire built machines (includes some GEs) a temp thermistor on exhaust duct at front of machine is a common problem. 50ohms is normal- less causes problems

Agitator very noisy while washing

There is a small roller that tightens the drive belt for the drum inside this unit. If it is loose it makes a squeaking noise. Tightening this may solve your problem. You will have to take off the back panel to do this repair
