Stackable unit with a squeak

I have a stackable unit with a squeak when drying. I have read to replace the rear barring you should do it through the front of the dryer. But that was on modles that are not stacked. Is it the same way on a stackable dryer? and if so any clue on how to get the front off?

The front panel will need to come off, disconnect power to unit.
remove the angular panel between the units theres a couple of screws behind there to remove the console(it drops sown no need to remove)
next there are maybe 4 screws across the very top of the unit (actually will be easier to remve the entire top of unit)
2 more screws behind the console then release the front panel, need to be mindfull of door switch wires.
ok from here you can reach under drum and release the tension pulley holding the belt( beforeyou do get a feel (you wont be able to see it) get a feel for how it operates and applies tension because youre gonna have to reattach in in alittle while
after that grab hold of the entire drum and give it a good lift off the rear bearing, might need a little ummf but ittl come out. afterthat follow instuctions in th ekit and reassemble unit.
my adive is that you use the supplied screws that hold rear bearing to drum to thread the rear bearing plate ahead of actually trying to secure it. much easier trying to reach in the drum and tightene the screws if the holes are all ready threaded.

GE dryers have a straight rod in the back center of the drum that goes through the rear bulk head and that is what supports the drum in the rear, it is also what squeaks when it gets warn out , around that short rod that goes into rear bulk head from the drum is a black Teflon plastic sleeve called a barring replace it and that will fix the noise

Squeaking Kenmore Stackable Dryer


Your rear drum bearing has worn through the plastic and is now hitting the metal support underneath it,
soon it will act like a guillotine and slice of the ball, the drum will fall backwards into the heating element and short to ground causing the fuse to blow the heater element to burn intwo and the whole thang will be dead in the water.

Dryer makes a loud squeaking/squealing noise while drying.


If the dryer model number begins with 417, the drum is supported by a ball bearing in back, and a seal and glides up front. Often, the bearing will become very dry, either from years of use, or from excessive lint blowing up into the bearing. If the bearing isn't cracked or otherwise noticeably bad, you can usually solve the issue simply by lubing the bearing with a high temp grease. While the machine is apart...(a major pain in the butt), make sure to check the condition of the seal and glides on the front panel, and replace the belt if it looks at all cracked or frayed.
If this dryer is not a 417 and/or does not have a rear bearing, it's best to get a maintainance kit (belt, idler pulley and drum rollers) and install all the aforementioned parts, as they are the most likely source of screech. Also, check the motor by spinning the shaft manually with the belt off....if that is squeeking, it's motor
time.
