Dryers usually do not have bearings but rather have rollers or glides. The dryer becomes noisy when the rollers or damaged get worn and must be replaced to address the noise problem. Furthermore, disassembly procedures vary by make and model; this requires you to indicate the make and the exact model number for specific and precise tear down steps.

My kenmore 87872800 dryer wont spin. everything else is working but drum wont spin.


Left the top of the dryer top, check to see if the belt isn't broke or loose, if that is in tact try turning the drum by hand to see if it turns easily. if not, the bearing in the back of the drum needs replaced. this is easy to replace, remove the drum by removing the dryer top and then remove the belt, and the drum slides up out of the machine. replace the bearing then reassemble dryer.

Dryer squeaks when clothes are drying


Squeaking can mean bearings going bad or the pulleys needing some oil on them. The pulleys can usually be accessed from the rear of the dryer. The bearings are a different story, you would need to remove outer casing of the dryer to remove the drum to get the bearings behind the drum. I would recommend trying to oil the motor and idler pulleys and if that doesn't fix the problem if your handy you can try to replace the bearings. Its a big job, the bearings are behind the drum and are screwed in from the inside of the drum. In order to remove the drum the casing of the dryer had to be removed, usually the front and the top (the top will sometimes tip back on hinges). After that the drum should slide out with the bearing assembly attached. Installation is the same as removal. {Note: If you find it to be too much trouble, I would just leave it squeak, other than being annoying it won't hurt anything. Also, some dryers have a compartment in the back where you can see the bearing assembly, maybe you can spray some WD-40 in there and see if it stops squeaking. The time you really need to replace the bearings is if your drum is loose, as the bearings have gone bad, not just squeaky}

The dryer drum will not turn, even manually with the belt removed


Sounds like something became wedged against the drum. Maybe a bearing?

Clothes getting caught between drum and front of dryer


Hello Friend, This problem is real common in Hotpoint/GE dryers. Your solution is simple. You need to replace the front drum bearing and glider pads. It's actually pretty simple to do. Just remove front of dryer cabinet. After removal just look at backside of dryer front around the inner door. You will see where the dryer drum has turned and wore a hole in the plastic piece above the dryer door. This piece is called the front drum bearing. Just unsnap this piece and snap in a new one. Be sure to replace the little plastic glide pads onto the top of the drum bearing before re-installing the dryer cabinet front. The front drum bearing and glider pads are sold seperately so make sure you have everything you need before you begin. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim. Thanks.
