Question about Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello uucyc1 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the washer tub bearing, belt, motor or trunnion (steel bar that secures the inner basket to the transmission shaft). As far as the dryer, long dry times typically are a result of poor air flow. Make sure that the dryer exhaust vent is completely clear and that the unit is not overloaded. I would suggest contacting an experiencing service technician to determine the precise cause to both units.
