You need to oinstall the bearing little ball and bearing first then install the drum and belt the last thing is to rinstall the 3 screws inside the back of the drum to the bearing this is the easy way rather than tryingto get the bearing in the scoket while on the drum

Why does my Frigidare crown dryer runs smooth when starts up, but gets a noise that gets louder the longer it runs it runs


Either your drum bearing or drum felt kit is worn out. It is always better to put drum bearing along with new drum felt kit.

Dryer drum started vibrating tremendously. I verified the belt and it looks in good condition. Suspect it might be the bearing or rollers if any. How do I remove back panel to inspect? (Kenmore Laundry...


You can't take the back panel off because that is what holds the bearing and holds the drum. I can tell you the bearing is the most likely cause. http://www.repairclinic.com/ sells the bearing kit and I would go ahead and replace the belt while you have it apart. I've done it by myself a few times, but it is best to have someone help at least while putting it back together. Holding the drum in place while putting the screws in the back of the drum (on the bearing) is the hardest part of the whole job. I believe I also got the directions from Repairclinic.com also.

GE Dryer DBVH512EF0WW vibrates/shudders excessively. Particularly with the top on. I've replaced the front top bearing, drum slides and felt seal. What is my problem?


The only thing I can think of is if you have plastic inserts built into the drum then maybe you installed the wrong kit in the dryer.
Their are basically 2 styles of GE dryers. Those that have a steel drum and a bearing with glides on the front panel and those that have felt on the front panel and the plastic glides mounted in the drum itself.

What's your problem?CHANGE REAR BEARING frigidaire dryer model # aeq7000ego


How do you know you need a rear bearing? You need to remove the front of the dryer, then loosen the belt from the tensioner near the motor pully (draw yourself a picture so you can put it back on the same way), take out the drum. The carrier is on the rear wall and the ball that holds the drum up is on the back of the drum

DRUM BEARING REPLACEMENT KIT Frigidaire GLER341AS2 Dryer


Hi. I don't work on many Frigidaire's, but that pesky ball bearing does not go into any of those grooves. It goes in the very back center of the cradle, sandwiched between the ball and a metal strip on the back side of the cradle. (It is suppose to drain off static electricity from the drum. If it gets lost, it's not a major loss) As for lube, just put a gob of the stuff that comes with the kit in the bottom of the cradle before reinstalling drum.

Clothes get lodged between dryer barrel and dryer frame


you need a new rear bearing kit and a new top front felt yes this is something you cand yourself. Frist unplug the dryer, with a stiff putty knife releace the clips on each side of the top at front to pop open the top. next on the inside of the front cover on each side is a philips head screw remove both screws ( I find it easier to use a #2 square head for this ) now remove the front panell diconect the door switch.now reach under the dryer drum behind the motor and release the belt by removing the tention on the idler pulley and slipping the belt off the motor shaft (you may be able to do this better fromt the rear of the dryer. there is an access panell remove the two screws and you can see the belt and idler pulley ) now using the belt in one hand and the front of the drum in the other lift up on the rear of the drum ( you are lifting the bearing out of the scocket you will feel it pop out ) now slid the drum out of the cabnet. Now you can repace the bearing put a piece of duct tape over the clip on back center of the dryer ( on the outside ) now remove the two 5/16 screws holding the bearing cup on remove the tape from the clip put ne clip on tape in place set new steel ball in cup i put a dab of the greace supplyed in the kit to hold it in put cup on new bracket. set in place and put screws in you may have to reach around the back to line up the clip teghten screws snug. now in the center of the drum is the bearing on the inside are three philips head screws remove all three some timse you can use a #2 square headi lossen all the screws frist almost completly the remove them one at a time or you will have to hold the bearing with one hand to keep it from spinning. Putting the new bearing on you have to put the screw in one hole hold it with one hand and line the bearing up with the other or get some one to leand you a helping hand makes it alot easier.tighten all three screws good and tight now reinstall dryer drum besure to seat the bearing in the bearing cup again you will feel it pop in put the belt back around the drum. Now on the dryer front you will see the felt support the fron of the drum glides on pull it off just the top felt only with a putty knife clean off as much of the old felt as possable. Apply a genurious amount of the glue provided in the kit to the new felt i always put a good line of glue on the dryer front also press the new felt to the front (be sure if the new felt has plastic glides the overhang should be toward the front not the drum if the new felt does not have these glides you don't have to worrie) put dryer front back on when putting the drum back on the top felt you may need to hold the new felt to keep it from moving. reconect door switch put the two screws back in the front. now go back to the back and putthe belt back on the motor pull the idler to tighten the spring put belt around motor shaft and ease pulley back to belt. Put access cover back on and secure. close the top plug it and test don't let dryer run long just a few seconds I like to let the dryer set 24 hour befor putting back to use to give the glue time to set.

Hotpoint tumble dryer is making loud scraping noise like the drum is catching against one the panels


This sound is caused by the drum tilting towards the rear panel just above the heating element housing and is due to the drum spindle wearing through the bearing. (Which can lead to it shearing off) after it`s cut it `s way into the bearing support bracket. A new rear bearing kit is needed. it will come with a foam support which is stuck on to the inside of the back panel as the drum rests against this when turning. the foam support on your dryer may have perished or gone flat due to the heat from the element and that is why your hearing the scaping sound. new foam ring from the bearng kit will cure the scraping.
