GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

Axial play in dryer drum


There is a bearing at the back middle of drum, and the socket in which it rides. (made of plastic].
Often when the exhaust is clogged or not venting properly it causes the plastic to melt wearing out the bearing.
There is a bearing kit with the complete beareing and socket but you will need to basically take the whole machine apart to rteplace these parts.

Clothes dryer is squealing when turned on. suspect drum bearing. looking for a diagram for dismantling can i take the top off without removing the back panel( GE 5 cycle dryer)


You dont need a bearing you need the DRYER DRUM SLIDE Part number AP2041815 which is under $6.50 a piece. Take the top of the dryer off and look on the front of the drum. Some GE dryers have 2 and some have 4.Go to Appliancepartspros.com it item 316 they also have a diaphram.

Iam hearing scraping sounds from my dryer.


Hello Friend, 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.
