GE Dryer ? about the slide's

7 posts in this topic

Dumb question and sorry if this has been asked and answered before,

I would like to know if it is critical to use the proper slide's ie: red, white, green,   or would WE1M1067 work in all application.Drum-Slide-Glide-or-Pad-WE1M1067--015380

 

 

I hope I did this pic right.

 

Thanks for your time,

D

1) no such thing as a dumb question in here

2) if there is, then I must embarrassingly admit I don't know the answer to a dumb question.

3) Therefore I prefer # 1 and I will wait along with you for someone who knows the answer.

btw your pic is spot on.

The green slides go in the inner most slots.  

 

According to GE, it's okay to substitute the white slides for the green ones:  http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Drum-Slide-Glide-or-Pad/WE1M504/963512?modelNumber=DX2300EE1WW

 

However, I have substituted the green for the white ones and have not had a call back for that job, over two years ago.  

 

Bottom line:  not sure it matters.

I didn't even know there was 2 different slides till last year (guess I should have paid more attention to the diagram). I have just used the white for all of them. Haven't had a problem yet.

See AARDL,by asking what you thought was a "dumb question," you have inadvertently enlightened at least two masters! So you see, it's always best to ask.

There are two (or more) different widths of the green ones and that might make a difference. I keep half a dozen of each kind in stock. If I ran out of one kind I'd probably substitute. Recently reduced my stock of the old Felt and White slides (the glue on type) to only one set.

Then I'm in good company 'cause I only use the green ones, but was at my first front load set and had to change the front bearing so I use the right ones 'cause they are rich and I didn't want call back, :tongue:

 

Thanks All,

D
