Noisy Dryer Can Cause Further Problems

In reply to Rear drum spindle bearing. by Henry in MI on March 2nd, 2003 07:45 PM [Go to top of thread]

** I put some white lithium grease in/on the bearing and it lasted another 6 years. **

Do that on some models of dryers and it can cause more damage. One popular brand (Frigidaire using the old Westinghouse drum bearing design) will eventually cut the drum shaft right in half. When this happens, the drum drops and often shorts out the element which then also needs to be replaced.
