GE DBXR463ED2WW Squeaks like a Sonofagun!

4 posts in this topic

Wise Appliance Gurus, I seek your council.

I have the above mentioned GE dryer. My wife and I picked it up on the cheap from craigslist, and its worked fairly well for us over the last year. However, its had this squeaking that I knew about a year ago, but of course have not done anything about. Now its squeaking continuously, and driving me slowly insane. Plus it tried to eat some of my t-shirts the other day, which is just not acceptable behavior here.

From my reading here, it seems like this dryer is held in fairly low regard anyway, but that I probably need to look at replacing the slides, and now probably the bearing support in the front that goes with it, and also maybe a felt seal and a rear bearing. Thats a lot of stuff.

Especially for a dryer that we bought for $60.

So my question is twofold:

1. Should I bother to fix this thing?

2. Does it seem like the above items would be the fix?

Much thanks!

its a fairly cheap fix, about $50 bucks, for the front bearing and all 4 tub glides.

I'd want you to double check the diagnosis first though. it only takes about 30mins to fix.
