GE Dryer-Model# DCVH480EK0WW

5 posts in this topic

I broke this dryer unit down and found the rear bearing had sheared off, at least I think so. The drum was flopping around and this is what I came up with. 

 

My question is: what part(s) do I need to replace the rear bearing?  Do I need a rear piece and a piece that bolts to the drum seperate?

 

Oh yeh, I don't want to get gready, but does anybody know what the idler pulley wheel part number is?

 

 

Thanks

Even though I had the parts in my hand, I don't understand how this bearing works:

 

1. Does the spindle attached to the drum mount, and this one has been sheared off?

2. Or is the sealed bearings seat themselves on the rear bearing mount and the drum mount?

3. One of the parts listed is a plastic bushing/washer, how does this work?

4. My regular supplier doesn't have any of these parts, should I be alarmed, and just order from sears?

 

Thanks.

Appliance Parts Pros have the WE03X10010 bearing assembly in stock at a much better price than Sears but not the other two parts.

 

Part number: WE03X10010

HELP!  O.K. this is me staying calm...

 

I couldn't figure out how the parts listed could fix the attachment from the drum to the frame, so I called my parts supplier and they said that I need to purchase the entire drum.

 

I'm assuming the spindle/shaft that seats into the rear bearing socket is attached to the drum? 

 

If I order all the listed parts, plus a new drum, do you think I will have all the parts necessary to fix this unit? 

 

Once again, I ran my mouth how I could fix this dryer, no problem...uug.
