Hello are you here?
Working on a dryer on a friday night so okay at best
Alright you have the top load dryer....correct not the front load
correct from Fisher Paykel
Ok you will need this part and it comes with instructions this is a very common problem...
Its just a bad design...cause by the design and overloading
how hard is it to put in? Is it going to cost another 30 bucks to help to install it?
The directions it comes with are pretty good...Its a little job, but not too bad. You should be able to do it with just the instructions.
I have seen several vidieos on youtube about bad bearings in these dryers they all sound like grinding mine is much more of a sqeuak.
Ok does it go squeak squeak kinda slow like the speed of the drum or like a high pitched super fast screeching
it sounds like it squeaks one time every revolution
Yeah the bearings are just going bad....if you catch it soon enough you can do the job from the inside by just replacing the sleeve in the kit.
Get the kit
Since the bearings are bad can I run it or will it cause more damage to the dryer?
You can, but I would get it fixed ASAP on that machine. If it grinds through you will wreck the machine. A couple small loads for now won't kill it
If you get the kit and can't figure it out contact me direct I will help you
