Dryer Drum Bearing ERWE3M26Part No. ERWE3M26
This bearing supports the front of the drum and allows the drum to turn freely.
Part location on dryer:
The front drum bearing is located behind the front of the dryer and supports the front of the drum.
Part failure symptoms:
The front drum bearing provides the mount for two “slides” which are the actual bearing surface. Worn out slides cause damage to the the front drum bearing. A failed front bearing can cause the drum to scrap against the front of the dryer resulting in a squeal or metal scraping sound. A failed front bearing may cause increased resistance for the motor to overcome when starting resulting in a slow start or a failure to start. Rear bearing should be checked as well.
Inspect the “front drum bearing” for signs of wear and/or breakage. Bring your “front drum bearing” in for free confirmation that it is good/bad or call the U-FIX-IT store for free assistance with diagnosis.
