SOURCE: Drum bearings,

if your machine is under 5 years old ...the machine is under warranty for parts only and is covered by hotpoint they will charge you for callout/ labour charge only..you need your date of purchase proof or go by the manufacturing date code inside the door the first two digits of eight.... this month is 73 so deduct the first two digits from that number eg if the digits were say 43 take that from 73 hence 30 months old from production my guess is the machine is pehaps 2 years old typicall failing for that model... .for you to buy the parts and do it yourself major stripdown! will cost you the same as their (hotpoints charge) so i would call them hope this helps

110.c68692700 need to change drum bearing


this model doesn't have a drum bearing. This unit rotates on drum support rollers which are like little wheels. You can look them up at
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action and order from there if needed. Noise such as squealing can also come from the idler pulley assembly. You might want to replace the entire "full service" kit. That comes with support rollers, idler asmy., and drum belt.

Drive Motor

The dryer drive motor turns the drum and the blower wheel to exhaust the air. If the dryer stops the motor might be defective. If the dryer stops and the dryer motor makes a humming noise there might be something caught in the blower wheel, or the drum might be binding. Try removing the belt from the motor and checking the blower wheel for obstructions. Also try rotating the drum by hand with the belt off, it should rotate freely. If the drum doesn't turn freely, determine what is causing it to bind. The dryer motor can't be tested easily. If the drum turns freely and the blower wheel is clear, and yet the dryer still keeps stopping mid-cycle the motor may be defective. it will need to be replaced. It is not serviceable.

Drum Roller Axle

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If the roller axles are worn out the rollers may not spin freely which can overload the motor and the dryer stops. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, remove the belt and spin the drum, it should spin freely. If not, check the rollers and roller shafts.

Drum Roller

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If they are worn out or start binding the motor can get overloaded and the dryer stops. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, check to be sure the drum turns freely with the belt removed. If not, check the rollers. Do not lubricate the rollers or roller shaft, lubrication will attract lint and cause the roller bearings to wear out faster. If the rollers don't turn freely, replace them. The roller shaft can often be reused, unless it has worn down. Clean the shaft thoroughly before installing the new rollers.

Drum Slide, Glide, or Pad

The front of the dryer drum is supported by small pieces of plastic-like material. As the drum rotates, it slides on these plastic pieces. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, it may be that one or more of these plastic slides or glides has worn out. When they wear out the drum can start binding and put strain on the motor. The motor then shuts down and the dryer stops. Check the glides for wear and replace as needed.

Drum Bearing

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. Over time this bearing will wear out and may cause several different problems. If the dryer stops during the cycle it may be that this drum bearing has worn out and is putting too much strain on the motor. If the belt is removed and the drum spins freely, the drum bearing is probably not worn out. If the drum bearing is worn out, there may be some grinding or squealing, and the drum will be hard to turn.

Dryness Control Board

The dryness control board shuts off the dryer when the clothes have reached the level of dryness selected by the user. If the dryer stops too early, the dryness control board might be defective. This is not very common and other possibilities should be checked first.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. If you can provide me with a mmake and model number I can tell you exactly what parts to order and change including the source to correct the problem you describe.

These parts are in most cases are:
1. The drum bearing ring: (not always bad)

2. The front drum (Replace)seal: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3131525

3. The rear drum seal: (replace) http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/WHIRLPOOL-Rear-drum-felt-seal-with-adhesive--red-thread--item-number-AP3094149.aspx

4. Roller kit and belt: (replace) http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/WHIRLPOOL-Dryer-repair-kit--29-inch-large-capacity-models--item-number-AP3131942.aspx

These are the most common failures. I would recommend ordering and replacing all parts 2 - 4. Doing this will ensure your dryer will last for a long time trouble free. (tumbling)

See this manual for general help: (Important)

How do i oil the belts? The dryer squeaks every time its turned on?


You don't oil the belts on a dryer. This will cause the belt to slip on the motor shaft and/or drum. Oil permiated into the metal of the dryer drum can ruin it causing any replacement belt to slip as well.

If the dryer is squealing, you probably need to lubricate the idler pulley wheel at the axle point (also known as a tension pulley). If this is a GE model they usually have drum slides and a drum bearing that support the front of the dryer drum as well. When they wear down, they begin to make noise. The drum slides are made of teflon and not only help support the drum, but ensures it turns smoothy. You may need to replace both the drum slides and the drum bearing.

If the model number is correct, the part numbers are as follows:

Drum Bearing - WE3M26
Drum Slide - WE1M481 (Blue), WE1M333 (White)

Replacement parts (if required) can be found at the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average cost of these components varies, so shop and compare. The first three websites I listed have helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different from the one you listed this question under, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Makes a load banging noise when spinning at high speed


what is the model number? The spider sits onto the drum inside the tub, then the shaft comes through the bearings then the wheel fits onto that. Some machines you can change the spider, others are fixed so the drum has to be changed. Let me know model number and i can find out if bearings are available for you.But to replace them is a big job. I finished 1 this morning.

Rear drum bearing


When it is like that you usually need to replace the drum bearing.

If the tub recently started making a lot of noise, and you can feel that the bearing had too much play when spinning by hand, that means that the drum bearing needed to be replaced.

You can find drawings and the schematics entering model number here.
