FLSE72GCSA top drum glide

How do I remove the front of the dryer to exchange the drum glide? I removed the top screws and the panel between the washer and the dryer but don't know how to continue, can't see any more screws that are accessible.
Thanks a lot,
Gaby

How to Replace a Dryer Door Switch on a whirlpool


First, make sure the peg on the door that pushes the switch is in place and the two snap pegs that hold the door shut are not broken. If any of these are broken, replace them first and see if that solves your problem. If not, here's how to replace the door switch: Unplug the dryer. Pull out lint screen. Remove two screws revealed underneath. Slide a 1" putty knife between the top and cabinet at the top front corners on each side, jamb it in while tugging the top forward to release the clips, one at a time. Lift top and lean against wall. If it's a gas dryer, remove lower front panel and loosen two 5/16" hex head screws for top front panel. If electric, loosen same screws at bottom of front panel. Remove two 5/16" hex head screws holding front panel from inside near top. Carefully tilt front toward you, holding drum in place. Lift front panel slightly to disengage bottom screws and remove. Gently lower drum until it stops. Unplug two (sometimes three) wires to door switch on right side. Now the front panel is completely free. Remove two Phillips head screws holding door switch onto front panel. Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly. Make sure wiring to door switch is secured to cabinet so they don't drag on the drum, and are not pinched. Be careful realigning the drum into the door opening so felt seal is inside the front glide ring on the drum. After the front panel is in place, gently hand turn the drum to make sure it is turning properly and the belt in still hooked to the idler and motor pulleys. If the drum falls off the rear rollers, or the belt comes loose, you will have to correct it before putting the front panel back on, as you cannot reach them otherwise. Taking pictures during disassembly will help get it back together properly. It really is not as hard as it seems, you may even be able to replace the switch without removing the front panel. Also, if you have a three wire switch, write down where they go or snap a picture. If it's a two wire switch, it doesn't matter, it will work the same either way. Good luck.

To get inside the dryer portion you start by removong the top making a note of where the screws mount makes it easier to put back right later but is no big deal. After removing the top you remove the splashplate and then the controlpanel. The panel has quick connects so the wiring will be no problem. Once the control panel has been removed get the front panel off ad remove the drum.
IThese dryers comewith 2 different styles of glides. The drum mounted version and the front panel mounted versions. The glide kit comes with glue also. I have a page which features videos and more on frigidaire dryers. HERE

Squeeks loudly when in use


it is either the front felt/glide or the rear bearing. take the two or three screws off the top panel in the back and remove the top. there will be a couple screws going in the front panel. remove. there is a yellow clip in the center holding the drum in place remove clip as well. front panel will tip ahead. you will be able to see the felt/fglide kit now. most likely the white glides are worn off. if not disconnect wires and remove panel fully. go under the drum and remove belf from motor pulley. the drum will remove by pulling up on the back of the drum. once it comes up pull out the front, and look at the bearing assy.good luck

I need to replace the drum seal due to brown stains on clothes.


When the front door glide system on the fex series dryers wears out the drum isn't held in place properly, there is enough of a gap between the bottom of the drum and the front panel for clothing to get in. As the drum rolls and the item moves to the top it becomes pinched as the gap closes leaving stains and sometimes damaged clothing.
If this is what you are talking about, Make sure it is unplugged then remove the slanted panel above the washer lid. remove the control panel (4 screws) it can be unplugged (2 plugs on left side) and laid aside (rubber line can be removed and slid out of plastic clamp.
when the control panel is removed you will find two screws holding the bottom of the front panel, these have to be removed.
there are 4 screws along the upper edge of the front panel that have to come out and then the front will come off.
Reassembly is difficult with this machine (I remove the dryer door if I'm working alone) so try to do the job when you have help.
Good Luck

How to remove the drum from the front and replace the drum support cup kit.


Release the top by pushing in the clips with a putty knife at the front right and front left of the dryer. Once you release the top you can remove it by disonnecting the ground wire at the rear of the top panel. Remove screws that secure the front panel to the dryer. Once all the screws are removed give the front panel a tug to pop it from the clips. Unhook the wiring harness and remove the front panel. By now you can see the drum. Remove the belt from the motor and idler wheel pulley. Yoy will need to get to the rear of the dryer and remove a grill (lower left corner).to gain access to the pulleys. Once the belt is removed, grasp the drum at the rear and give it a quick **** upward to release the drum from the rear bearing. The drum can now be removed through the front.

If you are replacing the rear bearing, consider also replacing the front plastic glides/slide that are located at the top of the door.
