Customer Question
Have a front load...

Have a front load Ge dryer model #GFDR485GF1MC, serial # MF165847G. There seems to be a tapping or clicking noise everytime the drum turns. Do I open the dryer from the front or the back side?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

A couple of years max

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yep

Access is from the front. The control panel comes off, followed by the main top, followed by the front, followed by the front bulkhead, followed by the drum., See the attached pages from the service manual and please let me know if I missed one! :~)

If you would be so kind, would you please remember to rate my service at the top of the page before you leave today? If you don't, I receive zero credit for my work. You may post back at anytime with follow up questions. Thank you so much!
